Jesus, Mary, Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the unborn child that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion. Amen.
Archbishop Fulton Sheen
PRAYER TO FREE 1000 SOULS FROM PURGATORY, Our Lord told St. Gertrude the Great that the following prayer would release 1,000
Souls from Purgatory each time it is said. The prayer was later extended to include living sinners as well.
“ETERNAL FATHER, I OFFER THEE THE MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD OF THY DIVINE SON, JESUS, IN UNION WITH THE MASSES SAID THROUGHOUT THE WORLD TODAY, FOR ALL THE HOLY SOULS IN PURGATORY, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal Church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.”
Why do we honor Mary so much? Because God honored her so much…
This is a great presentation by Tim Staples (Right Here, Right Now October 9, 2014)
When I was in Vietnam, a friend of mine loaned me Hal Lindsey’s book “The Late Great Planet Earth”. I read it with rapt attention, especially since I was in a place where it was entirely possible that I could beat the rapture by several years.
While I was reading the book, it hit me that “the rapture” didn’t really matter much because the end of the world could come for me, or anyone else for that matter, any second. Concentrating on the “end times” was sort of a waste of time in my mind because time is going to end for all of us at some point – why not just be ready for that eventuality?
Then came the “Left Behind” series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. Friends and family members gobbled down the series as quickly as they could find the books. And they began the process of trying to save me…
With the theatrical release of the film “Left Behind”, I thought it would be appropriate to post Tim Staples’ talk on rapture theory.
Dear Brother Knight,
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report showing that American taxpayers are subsidizing abortion coverage in more than 1,000 government-sponsored health care plans.
The GAO is a non-partisan government watchdog office responsible for examining the impact of federal laws and the use of taxpayer money. In creating this report, the GAO also discovered that insurance companies providing coverage through plans established by Obamacare are not billing the abortion coverage separately, as required.
The GAO report also confirmed that the information about abortion coverage in these insurance plans is not uniformly available to consumers. This has led many pro-life Americans and their families to inadvertently choose coverage with which they have a profound moral disagreement. Not only is this bad policy, but it is in direct opposition to the views of the majority of the American people. This year, our K of C-Marist poll found that by a 58 to 37 percent margin, Americans oppose the use of tax dollars to fund abortions.
An important piece of legislation, H.R. 7 the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, would address these issues by expanding the pro-life “Hyde Amendment” to permanently ban all public funding of abortion while also requiring every insurance plan established under Obamacare to clearly indicate whether or not it covers abortion. While the U.S. House of Representatives has acted on this legislation, it is currently stalled in the U.S. Senate.
We encourage you to contact your Senators today and tell them to act now on H.R. 7 to ensure that all Americans have access to healthcare that is transparent and does not offer morally objectionable services subsidized by taxpayers. We also encourage you to read the Supreme Knight’s Op-ed on this issue here.
Additionally, the full report from the GAO is available online and is important reading for all Knights and their families.
Thank you for all you do to promote a Culture of Life.

I was reading somewhere where a Bible Christian had asked the question, “Did Jesus attend a Catholic seminary?”
Thinking about that question, I realized that no, He didn’t. Jesus WAS the ORIGINAL Catholic seminary, and the apostles were the original Catholic seminarians. And then the apostles became the next generation Catholic seminaries, and handed down what they had been taught by the original Catholic seminary professor, Jesus Christ, The Son of God.
And that same body of knowledge and teaching has continued to be handed down by the unbroken line of successors of the apostles to this day.
Dr. Hahn talks about his new book Consuming the Word and takes questions from viewers about the New Testament, the Early Church and the Eucharist.
Yes, Marian teachings are found in The Bible…
Former evangelical & anti Catholic preacher speaks of discovering the Blessed Mother in scriptures. Dr. Scott Hahn reveals incredible insights on the Biblical basis for the Catholic teachings regarding Mary as the Ark of the New Covenant. This presentation will help shatter many misconceptions and clearly demonstrate how Catholic teachings are unmistakably rooted in Sacred Scripture.
This is an excerpt from the Christ 101 course. I highly recommend the course to anyone interested in the art of apologetics, or just interested in learning WHY we believe what we believe.
