      The reality of our encounter with the Person of Christ in the Eucharist is that we can, and should, and must always go deeper — for our own sake, and for the sake of our families, our fellow parishioners, our co-workers, our friends. Because, in the end, the success of the National Eucharistic Revival depends not on the bishops but on each one of us. The more deeply we encounter Christ in the Eucharist, the more our lives will reflect that encounter. When Christ in the Eucharist is the center of our existence, those around us will know — and they will come to understand that the Eucharist is no mere symbol but a Person whom they, too, will desire to encounter more deeply.

      “That simple baptism, held without fanfare in the basement of a great cathedral, is a reminder that a holy Baby, born in a stable 20 centuries ago, defies the wisdom of man. He cannot be defeated.”

      “All the great civilizations reach a moment when they’re out of touch with the inspiration that made them. And there’s a critical transition moment when they either go towards renewal or down to decline.“

      Join us 8:30am, Friday, 5/13 at the Fatima Shrine at St. Catharine Church in Spring Lake for a time of prayer.. "When we have the courage to pursue the truth about “what is wrong with the world” (to borrow a phrase of G.K. Chesterton), we discover that most things in the present world are not what they seem. And instead of focusing on all the “whats” going on in the world, we should be focusing on the“why” because, as Venerable Fulton Sheen said during World War II, the real reason behind today’s wars and evils is not dialectical, but theological. The world has rejected God and that rejection comes with earth-shattering consequences—consequences we are living with today."

    Wisdom from Monsignor Pope

    Struggles: Yet what should be obvious seems to be strangely absent from the minds of many. Marriage and family are in crisis in our culture due to the willfully sinful habits of many adults in the areas of sexuality, marriage and family life. 

    Strategy: What are we to do? Preach the word! 

    We must be prepared to unambiguously repropose the wisdom of God’s word to our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. 

    Children deserve and have the right to expect two parents, a father and mother, committed to each other until death do they part.
