The first in a series of prayer cards designed to promote Christian Unity. This first card says:
"Yet a time is coming and has now come when true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks." (John 4: 23)
On the back is a Timeline showing that Jesus established the Catholic Church in 33 A.D.--and the dates our separated brethren broke away from that One True Church.
"And I feel one thing I want to share with you all, the greatest destroyer of peace today is the cry of the innocent unborn child... today millions of unborn children are being killed... And we say nothing... let us all pray that we have the courage to stand by the unborn child, and give the child an opportunity to love and to be loved... For the child is the greatest gift of God to a family, to a nation and to the whole world. God bless you!"
~Words of St. Mother Teresa on receiving the Nobel Peace Prize

It was an unforgettable experience to pray before the tomb of Ven. Archbishop Fulton Sheen in Peoria. It was especially grace-filled when we were able to kneel down and place our hands and head right against his tomb imploring his intercession for a dear friend of the community whose battling cancer. At the Cathedral, we got to see a beautiful reliquary, and close by there was a little museum filled with treasures from Ven. Sheen's life such as the chasuble and vessels he used, and a desk he wrote.

Sr. Faustina Maria was interviewed by St. Gabriel’s Radio – Answering the Call – about her vocation story.
DON’T DO IT! WHY?
“The union between God and man
in Holy Communion
is the one thing that terrifies hell.”
(Pope Benedict XVI)
“If we can’t receive this Eucharist, if we can’t receive your Body and Blood, where are we going to go? What will you exchange the very Body and Blood of Jesus Christ for? A better song? One that makes you feel better? Will you exchange the very Body and Blood of Jesus Christ for a homegroup, where you can read the Bible together? Will you exchange the very Body and Blood of Jesus Christ for a prayer meeting? It’s a question we all have to answer. We are fed as Catholics on a diet of the Word of God and we are fed by his Body and his Blood. This all takes place right there in the Mass. A beautiful, beautiful thing.” (Jeff Cavins)
Sr. Philomena Maria and Sr. Faustina Maria traveled to Idaho for Camp Apologhetti, a high-school retreat based on apologetics. To learn more about the camp visit: https://apologhetti.net

We thank all of our volunteers, chaperones, and prayer supporters – because of you these young ladies were able to spend 3-5 days with Jesus Eucharistic and grow in His Love, while meeting others who can journey with them in their Faith.
Hope you enjoy the video!
