Awake from Your Slumber

Tuesday, August 02, 2022

Pope Saint John Paul II on a trip

to America during the American Bicentennial,

made the following comments:


"We are now standing in the face of the

greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that

wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community

realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church

and the anti-Church, of the Gospel v... Read More

July 26, Saints Joachim and Anne

Saints Joachim and Anne- may they speak God’s Truth to our sinful world

As we celebrate Saints Joachim and Anne whose Memorial is July 26, I believe it is critical that we beg their intercession at this time in our nation and in our world.

July and the Precious Blood of Jesus

It reminds us that God is the author of life and as His children we must honor all human life as a gift from our creator. The culture of death has the world in a stranglehold but let us never despair. Jesus Christ is the Lord of Life and He inspires us in His Spirit to always seek... Read More

St. Justin Martyr- A Saint for Our Time

Justin the Martyr is a Model for Our Mission

Deacon Keith Fournier

One has only to open social media or any other source of news to discover the obvious. Our Society is in a serious moral decline. Many refer to it as a new pagan age. I prefer to say we are living in a Pre-Christian age. I long ago stopped participating in the ongoing debate about whether this is a post-Christian or post-modernist age.

Our task is to do what the early Christians did, proclaim in word an... Read More
