November 2016

Universal:  That the countries which take in a great number of displaced persons and refugees may find support for their efforts which show solidarity.
Evangelization: That within parishes, priests and lay people may collaborate in service to the community without giving in to the temptation of discouragement.

In order to prepare for that event, we’ll take a look at what constitutes an authentic apparition; and look more closely at the apparitions of Guadalupe and Lourdes.

8 Months Old:

Thank you for praying for me. I am 8 months old now. I have long fingernails and I’m busy getting ready for my birthday! I can’t wait to see my Mom and Dad. I’ll see them soon, thanks to all of your prayers!

You’re in the home stretch with  your spiritually adopted baby. He continues to gain more weight, making his mother uncomfortable with his size. But shes not worried now. In a short time, her baby will be born. She has planned to bring him home or to place him for adoption. Either way, she knows she can receive the assistance she needs from the Catholic Church and from the Pregnancy Crisis Centers.
