Random Thought 1: I have had a considerable problem with the website this past week. I lost my archive and some of the other things I had published earlier. Please be patient and let me know if you are now getting it without too much difficulty. Also, I need your help in making the web site grow, to get the Word of God out to those who might need it. Tell your friends and neighbors about it and try to get more readers. I only spread the gospel by word of mouth, so I trust in you, my readers, to help spread the Good News of the Catholic Church.

Random Thought 2: I highly recommend Monsignor Pope’s article about the insights of Pope Leo XIII. It is a little long but well worth the effort. His message, given late in the 19th century is right on with today’s culture.

2612 — In Jesus “the Kingdom of God is at hand.” He calls his hearers to conversion and faith, but also to watchfulness. In prayer the disciple keeps watch, attentive to Him Who Is and Him Who Comes, in memory of his first coming in the lowliness of the flesh, and in the hope of his second coming in glory. In communion with their Master, the disciples’ prayer is a battle; only by keeping watch in prayer can one avoid falling into temptation.
