CATHOLIC PewPOINT:

Beware the Ides of March!

      In commemoration of the Ides of March and true to our purpose here, and with apologies to William Shakespeare, we present our take on the soliloquy by Marc Antony in the work "Julius Caesar" who was of course done in by his "good and honorable friend" Brutus. Here we substitute Judas for the latter, and put the true Divine One in the place of Caesar. For half a century after the Roman ruler was done in, a New Ruler came on the scene - One Who would rule forever in Eternity and in our hearts. But 2000 years later so many have forgotten, have denigrated the greatness of this Son of Man, forgetting all He promised and favor those of the world who seek to annihilate His memory and all He bequeathed to mankind.      The Ides of March bodes the warning knell to all that the evil one's time is growing short as is the promised Era of Peace - the New Advent - the glorious Reign of the Sacred Heart - a time ushered in by the Triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart when satan will be bound and chained by the prayers and good deeds of all who stay the course. For those who wander, for those who neglect God's warning, for those who the world, not God, perceives as honorable men: Beware the Ides of March!
