"The Most Effective Response to Evil"

Pope Benedict XVI VATICAN CITY, MARCH 11, 2007 - Here is a translation of the address Benedict XVI delivered today before reciting the midday Angelus with several thousand people gathered in St. Peter's Square.



Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The passage of Luke's Gospel proclaimed on this Third Sunday of Lent refers to Jesus' comments on two current events of that time. The first was the uprising of some Galileans, which was suppressed by Pilate with the shedding of blood; the second was the collapse of a tower in Jerusalem, which caused the death of 18 victims. They were two tragic, yet very different, events. The first was caused by man, the other was accidental.

Papal Message for Lent 2007
Image "They Shall Look on Him Whom They Have Pierced"

VATICAN CITY, FEB. 13, 2007. - Here is Benedict XVI's message for Lent 2007. It was issued today by the Vatican press office.

Dear Brothers and Sisters!

"They shall look on Him whom they have pierced" (Jn 19:37). This is the biblical theme that this year guides our Lenten reflection. Lent is a favourable time to learn to stay with Mary and John, the beloved disciple, close to Him who on the Cross, consummated for all mankind the sacrifice of His life (cf. Jn 19:25). With a more fervent participation let us direct our gaze, therefore, in this time of penance and prayer, at Christ crucified who, dying on Calvary, revealed fully for us the love of God. In the Encyclical Deus caritas est, I dwelt upon this theme of love, highlighting its two fundamental forms: agape and eros.

An Interview With Fr. Tomislav Pervan (1996.)
"Medjugorje, The New Emmaus"

by: Miro Brcic

From "GLAS MIRA" No. 7. 1996., pages 9/13.Image

With the beginnings of Medjugorje, we encounter something which we can call world phenomena, a miracle in the making which is surviving and continuing. Many try to dispute its authenticity saying that's just a cheap way of comforting the deprived, the cheated and those who have lost their way in life.

Pope Voices Concern for Laws on Life and Family
Greets Ambassador From Colombia

Image VATICAN CITY, FEB. 9, 2007 - Benedict XVI says that legislators should respect life, marriage and the family, issues that he says are of particular concern to him.

The Pope made this comment today on receiving the letters of credence of the new ambassador of Colombia to the Holy See, Juan Gómez Martínez. The ambassador has also served as the mayor of Medellin and governor of the state of Antioquia.

The Holy Father said: "As shepherd of the universal Church, I cannot but express my concern about the laws that regard very delicate questions such as the transmission and defense of life, sickness, the identity of the family and respect of marriage.

"On these topics, and in the light of natural reason, and of the moral and spiritual principles that stem from the Gospel, the Catholic Church will continue proclaiming ceaselessly the inalienable greatness of human dignity."

On this matter, the Pope appealed "to the responsibility of the laity present in legislative bodies, in the government and in the administration of justice, so that the laws will express always the principles and values that are in keeping with the natural law and that promote the genuine common good."

Pilgrimage to St. Tryphon - Kotor

Image The trip was lovely, well worth the early (3:30 am) start. The ride started out OK until bus no. 15, our bus broke down. After fiddling with the engine for a while the driver decided he could not do a thing to get us going with this bus. An hour or so passed we got two vans instead and we where on the road again. It was already 6:30 am and we are far behind the other 14 buses but we still had the baby bus no. 16 behind us. We drove along the coast, we passed Klek, Neum, Dubrovnik and finally reached the Croatian - Montenegro border another 40 min. before we get to Kotor. The nice people on my van made the trip so much fun and as God provided us with the little speedy van we reached Kotor just a few minutes behind the other 14 buses. Praise GOD, we got there safe and sound and on time for the Holy Mass.

Fr. Mika Stojic, the Dean of the Deanery of Brotnjo, a true Franciscan trooper, got us all there with our yellow caps. I got to say that we where quite distinctive. There where quite a few people there. They came from all over, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia… but the Deanery of Brotnjo, our Deanery, with our Franciscans and our yellow caps where the ones that occupied the town in the real sense of the word, there where 736 of us. Anyhow, it is time for me to stop writing “a picture is worth a thousand words” and I got quite of few of those. My friend Vlatka and her sister Tihana helped me quite a bit. Take a look, click HERE then select “Other albums” and then select “Pilgrimage - Kotor”. Peace.

MARIAN CONSECRATION

I, (name), a faithless sinner, renew and ratify today in your hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism; I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.
In the presence of all the heavenly court, I choose you this day for my Mother and Queen. I deliver and consecrate to you, as your slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present, and future; leaving to you the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to your good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and eternity. Amen.
-  St. Louis Marie de Montfort
