And It Came to Pass . . .?

“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 versus the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine Providence; it is trial which the whole Church, and the Polish Church in particular, must take up. It is a trial of not only our nation and the Church, but, in a sense, a test of 2,000 years of culture and Christian civilization with all of its consequences for human dignity, individual rights, human rights and the rights of nations.”  by Cardinal Karol Wojtyla made in America in 1976.

Feast Day for Our Guardian Angels!

Who can possibly top our Guardian Angels for attentiveness, love, concern, and protection? Okay, mothers might come close but even though it seemed that they did have miraculous powers  when finding out ‘who did it’ in our childhood, they didn’t! Our Guardian Angels do. I imagine the first thing God will reveal to those of us blessed enough to reach the foot of His throne will be to show us all the mishaps we avoided because of our heavenly friends.

Angels of God,
My Guardian dear,
To whom God’s love
Commits me here,
Ever this day,
Be at my side,
To light and guard,
Rule and guide.
Amen
