Update : Two Sister Cities!! Fatima, Portugal-Selcuk, Turkey

"More than half of the pilgrims are Muslims who feel that Mary’s House is the home to Meryem, the mother of Isa (Jesus) the great prophet of Islam."....." For this reason, Muslims from Turkey, Iran and other nations make pilgrimages to see the stone house."
" It seems that in Ephesus, at Mary’s House, the two religions find a common ground in the Blessed Virgin. It is a beautiful thing to witness.”
" only one week before our arrival in Selcuk, the mayor announced that he had finalized plans to become a Sister City to Fatima, Portugal. “The mayor and a small contingency is planning a trip to Fatima later this month to meet with their counterparts in Fatima,” the Bishop added."

Fatima Prayer Everywhere! 2017


Prepare for Fatima Prayer Everywhere! Our beautiful Mother, the Blessed Virgin and Mother of God promised the World that Her Immaculate Heart will Triumph, and with that an Era of Peace will be granted to the world.

"Although anxieties and sufferings have not been lacking, and there are still reasons for apprehension about the future of humanity, what the 'Lady in white' promised to the little shepherds is consoling: 'In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph,'" Pope Benedict XVI acknowledged.

On May 13, 2010, Pope Benedict XVI also stated, right after the Homily of the outdoor Mass in the Prayer Area, a very special wish for the Centennial: “May the seven years which separate us from the centenary of the apparitions hasten the fulfilment of the prophecy of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to the glory of the Most Holy Trinity”.

On the 100th Anniversary of Fatima, in 2017, join us across the world offering to Our Mother the gift of Prayers and the Rosary. Let us celebrate her promise of the Triumph of Her Immaculate Heart and the Era of Peace to come!

The New Roman Missal, First Sunday of Advent "Stir up Thy might, we beg Thee, and come."

A change throughout the whole world is taking place. We in these times are witnessing changes on every level of life. Not only do we see historic changes in weather, in economy, in the politics of many countries, especially in the Muslim Countries. Soon we will see a change within the Roman Catholic Church. Rumors of the world undergoing dramatic changes swirl in the air like leaves of Autumn following their course of Winter's wind. What we are witnessing seem to be summed up by these two poets.

"I like the feeling of danger in the cold Autumn air that carries a quiet warning that winter is on the way and that time is running short."
John J. Rowlands, Cache Lake Country

"Autumn is the time when seasons merge because of bare necessity."
Rod McKuen

Nature is speaking to us all. Our world is converging. We are seeing the growing pains and it is out of necessity. The Church too will take its place announcing the Lord and His wondrous purpose. We will all see His Majesty in great splendour. This New Missal will begin on the New Church Year Calendar, when Advent begins. The date will be November 27th, 2011.

Why is the Roman Missal changing? Well, only parts of the words are changing, and this is because the Church wants the words of the Mass to be a more true translation of the Latin. The music will also be changed to a more pure sound of Chant Song. Click the link below to hear what to expect for Christmas.

Nativity: The Christmas Proclamation

 "Come!" God is not deaf to His people's cry. "Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make His paths straight." Mark 1:1-8
This prophecy, spoken by Isaiah, is fulfilled by St. John the Baptizer, whose coming was foretold by the prophet Malachi: “Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.” St. John was sent by God to prepare His people for the coming of Christ. He was to bring them to an awareness of their sins.

Almighty, everlasting God, who hast dominion over both the living and the dead and art merciful to all who, as Thou foreknowest, will be Thine by faith and works; we humbly beseech Thee that they for whom we intend to pour forth our prayers, whether this present world still doth detain them in the flesh or the world to come hath already received them stripped of their mortal bodies, may, by the grace of Thy fatherly love and through the intercession of all the saints, obtain the remission of all their sins. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth God, world without end. Amen.
