Our Lady of America
From the beginning of time every prophecy, every vision, throughout the centuries,
will have its fulfillment in Our Lady of America and her message
of the Indwelling Trinity living in every soul, which will renew the whole world and destroy Lucifer
and all the evil spirits in the fight he is making against the Indwelling Trinity.
This will eventually destroy him.

Opus Sanctorum Angelorum
"Opus Sanctorum Angelorum, the Work of the Holy Angels, is an international movement within the Catholic Church faithful to the Magisterium. It is ordered to promoting devotion to the holy angels and a covenant bond with them through a consecration approved by the Church, so that the holy angels may lead us more effectively to God. The Work is under the overall direction of the Order of Canons Regular of the Holy Cross, under which has also been erected the Confraternity of the Holy Guardian Angels. The Sisters of the Holy Cross is aggregated to the Order and, though autonomous, forms with it one spiritual family.

The holy angels are powerful spirits present among us, "sent to serve those who are to inherit salvation" (Heb 1:14). "Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life" (CCC 336). Most Catholics know little about the holy angels except for the prayer, Angel of God, My Guardian Dear. Yet how much more progress we could make in our spiritual life if we looked more often to him who was given to us specifically as a "shepherd leading [us] to life"!" ... more
Apostolate for Family Consecration
Apostolate for Family Consecration"The Ad Hoc Committee to Oversee the Use of the Catechism, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has found the Consecration in Truth® catechetical series to be in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

The Consecration in Truth program is a creative blending of new multimedia technology (audio/visual and printed resources) and tried and proven interactive teaching methods to assist and unite parents, educators, and pastors in their sacred duties of teaching the Catholic faith to children and adults alike.

This theologically approved curriculum centers on Sacred Scripture, the documents of Vatican II, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and classics of Catholic spirituality..." more
"Catholic.net is a web based apostolate, directed by the Legionaries of Christ and Regnum Christi Movement, intended to equip Catholics with information to help them build a Christlike character, so that they can engage and transform the culture with the Truth of the Gospel transmitted to us by the Holy Mother Church, which is One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic.

In Answer to our late Pope, John Paul II, Catholic.net aims to form an online Catholic community committed to evangelize the social world by building up the Kingdom of Christ through their Families, Parishes, Dioceses, and general communities. To foster this commitment Catholic.net promotes interaction among Catholics worldwide through information sharing and online interactive tools. Fundamentally Catholic.net serves as an online platform to build synergies among the various apostolic initiatives.

Catholic.net is supported by the generosity of its donors, and the invaluable work of its volunteers who are religious and laypersons from congregations and movements faithful to the Magisterium. Most and foremost Catholic.net is made possible by the prayers of our community and of Our Lady of Guadalupe, our patroness, to whom the intentions of this apostolate and of all the people it serves is entrusted." ... more

Catholic electronic evangelization since 1987
"St. Anne's Helper Roman Catholic catechism audio Baltimore Catechism covers the Baltimore Catechism answers and the Catholic prayers including the main Catholic prayers for children. Our Catholic audio books, Catholic ebooks and homeschool worksheets complement CCD and Catholic home school programs.

What is your Audio Catechism Story?
These Audio Catechism (CDs and Downloads) and Copybooks are so great! How did you do them?
The answer? Our story rests on the grace of the duty of state and listening to good advice. We made sure to teach the First Communion and Confirmation basic Catholic beliefs to our own children, and wanted to teach them well.
Our story began thirteen years ago when our first child was to receive her First Communion. We were told that the date would be in August. Then our pastor was relocated. The next pastor said that First Holy Communion would take place in September or October. So we continued to review the Baltimore Catechism questions and answers.
Then November, December.... Yes, you might have guessed it, the date was finally Mother's Day! We didn't guess it, yet at about November we told our daughter that once she could pronounce and remember her catechism answers well enough, we would put the questions and answers on a cassette that she could keep and review at will even while she played with her sister and brother, colored or worked on crafts. Voila! Audio catechism... more

Our Catholic Prayers
"Catholic prayers are a wonderful resource to help us to grow in love with God and with each other! How's your prayer life? Could it be better? Does life give you more stress than you can handle? Good news: You're not alone! There are over 2000 years of Catholic prayers to help save the day and enrich your life!

Perhaps you’d just like to know more prayers (for all sorts of needs and occasions) or learn more about them. This collection features those important to every Catholic, daily prayers such as the Our Father, the Rosary, and the Act of Contrition. There are also some lesser known ones here that are quite beautiful and inspiring, along with many prayers to and from the Saints.

We’ve also included Catholic prayers for various times in the liturgical year, such as Lent and Pentecost. In addition, you'll find thoughts in these pages to inspire you in your prayer life (and to help you deal with distractions!) written by Saints and other well known religious figures. For example, as St. Pio of Pietrelecina would say, “Pray, hope, and don’t worry”.

Remember that God is never “too busy” to hear from you. Don’t be “too busy” for him! There are some daily Catholic prayers such as the Our Father and the Rosary that take only minutes to say, yet their benefits can last a lifetime!

Catholic prayers can do wonders for your soul. God gives us joy and strength though prayer. You can get a great sense of peace in good times and consolation in bad from them. Our Lord wants to give us the good things we ask for in accordance with His will. The more we pray the more we can grow in His grace.

Grace is a gift from God that enables us to live more fully in union with Him. It strengthens our desire to choose good over evil. It also helps us to manage difficulties in our lives better. When we feel humility, compassion, forgiveness we’re putting others’ needs before our own. These are signs of God’s graces working within us." ... more
"In September 1984, six St. Louis women gathered around a dining room table to discuss their concern that the US bishops, who had announced their intention to write a pastoral letter on the subject of "women's concerns", might not receive an accurate picture of Catholic women. The women were concerned about the impression given in the media that most Catholic women feel "alienated" from the Church, and dissent from Church teachings on issues ranging from abortion to ordination. They were aware that feminist theology had influenced many women and Catholic leaders. They wanted to do something positive to overcome this distorted image of Catholic women.

The result of the women's discussions was an eight-point statement of fidelity to Church teachings on a wide range of issues. They began to circulate the statement, called the Affirmation for Catholic Women, among their friends and colleagues, inviting them to reproduce the Affirmation and to help collect signatures

Women for Faith & Family was formed to assist in distribution of the Affirmation, to foster greater communication among faithful Catholic women, and to be helpful in communicating their concerns to the bishops and other Church leaders.

The response to the Affirmation was overwhelming. Within a few months, 4,000 signatures had been received, and a copy of the Affirmation with a list of the signers was sent to the Bishops' Committee on Women." ... more

"As Catholics, we are devoted to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, the Pope and the Bishops in union with him.

As taught by the Church, we recognize parents’ role as primary educators of their children, fully aware of the difficulties this presents in secular society.

America Needs Fatima
America Needs Fatima"America Needs Fatima (ANF) is The American TFP's special campaign to spread the Fatima message in the United States. The goal of America Needs Fatima is to win the heart and soul of America for Mary by spreading Our Lady's Fatima message and promoting devotion to Her Immaculate Heart.

America urgently needs the prophetic messages of Our Lady at Fatima. Above all, America needs a clear direction, a great purpose, and the means to achieve it. The admonitions, requests, and warnings of Mary Most Holy can rightly be called a heaven-sent survival manual.

America Needs Fatima sees the essence of Our Lady's message is to open our eyes to the gravity of today's moral corruption, to explain it in light of God's plans, and to outline how to prevent the chastisement. Our Lady is thus teaching us about our epoch and our future.

To fulfill this desire in spreading our Lady's message, America Needs Fatima has organized pro-life rallies, anti-blasphemy protests, the distribution of millions of fliers nationwide, a home visitation program enthroning statues of Our Lady of Fatima, and the promotion of books and devotional items. All seek to draw people closer to God and His Blessed Mother." ... more
Catholic-Pages logo
"Catholic-Pages.com started as a personal home page using the free space my ISP gave me with my dial-up account. I wanted to put some information up on the web that I had at home from lots of different sources. The site kept growing, changing, growing...

I used to use the portals just as they were going popular: sites like My Yahoo!, My Excite and MSN.com. But, while they were useful for giving up to date news headlines, I really wasn't interested in stock reports or my horoscope and (being Australian) wasn't that interested in movie times or TV listings or weather for US cities!

So I decided to try and make a portal for Catholics to use. Something that would give Catholics daily information of use to them that they could use instead of the secular portals - something that would give some spiritual nourishment. So I created My Catholic Start Page. In the beginning, I used JavaScript to create the site with about a fortnight's worth of daily information pre-loaded in the page. I physically had to update the page every few weeks. At one time, I lost internet access for over a month and had to do the updating from an Internet Café!

When I kept getting email from people saying how much they appreciated what I was doing, I decided to take the site to the next level and register a domain name. That was when the site became Catholic-Pages.com!" ... more
This is a small and humble Traditional Catholic web site for kids of all ages and for other Christians who are interested in the Catholic Faith.

It is not our intention to distribute volumes of information about the Catholic faith — there are hundreds of beautiful web sites that have accomplished this. But we want to concentrate on the traditional Catholic prayers and the Holy Rosary, along with links to our favorite Catholic web sites and fun stuff for kids.

We will gladly answer any questions that we can, but we will refer you to our resources to better answer any questions that you may have. We hope you enjoy our little web site and will be inspired by the Holy Spirit to love and practice the Catholic Faith with devotion, and to remember to always seek the truth!

Prayer intentions are always welcome. We pray the Holy Rosary daily for the conversion of sinners.
Our Sunday Visitor logoOur Sunday Visitor
Our Sunday Visitor, a Catholic not-for-profit organization, began with the vision of one young Indiana parish priest shortly after the turn of the century. Then-Father John Francis Noll had grown weary of the anti-Catholic literature flooding his people so he began to write a parish bulletin. From his work as a defender of the Faith grew one of the most successful weekly Catholic newspaper -- Our Sunday Visitor.

Today, Our Sunday Visitor is located in a small town -- Huntington -- in northeastern Indiana, just 20 miles south of Fort Wayne. It is home to 300 employees who work for two different divisions --publishing and offertory solutions.

The publishing division is responsible for the writing and promotion of six periodicals, which include: Our Sunday Visitor Newsweekly, Take Out: Family Faith on the Go, The Catholic Answer, The Priest, My Daily Visitor, and Grace In Action. In addition to the periodicals, Our Sunday Visitor publishes and markets over 500 products including books, tapes, software, and education materials.

Our Sunday Visitor is also home to the nation's largest supplier of offering envelope products and services to Catholic parishes throughout the United States, manufacturing over 800 million envelopes annually.

As a not-for-profit company, Our Sunday Visitor serves the Church not only with its products and services, but also by returning all of its net earnings to the Catholic community. Through the Our Sunday Visitor Institute, we fund Catholic projects throughout the United States, particularly those that seek to address religious illiteracy, contribute to the evangelization of the culture, link faith and morality, especially to young people, and explain and promote the dignity of the human person." ... more
TFP iconThe American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property logo
The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) is an organization of lay Catholic Americans concerned about the moral crisis shaking the remnants of Christian civilization. Its origins date back to January 1971, when the first TFP members started to group around the publication Crusade for a Christian Civilization. Today, with over 120,000 active members, volunteers and donors, the TFP is on the front lines of the Culture War, peacefully defending the values of tradition, family and private ownership.

Central to the TFP mission is the idea that the various crises threatening American society and the Church cannot be seen as separate and disjointed. Rather they originate from a single cause.

The TFP handbook Revolution and Counterrevolution by Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira masterfully traces the historical and philosophical roots of this single cause: a phenomenon called the Revolution

The TFP was born from the idea of a Counterrevolution, a reaction that would embrace every field of of human activity, but especially art, ideas and culture. TFP books, publications and newspaper advertisements help bring these views to the public. Moreover, the TFP is not afraid to take them to the streets with colorful sidewalk campaigns in major cities." ... more

"The American Chesterton Society works tirelessly to promote the writings and thought of G.K. Chesterton, one of the 20th century’s greatest writers. A convert to the Catholic Church, Chesterton wrote nearly a hundred books during his lifetime, and literally thousands of essays, in newspapers and magazines.

All the issues we struggle with in the 21st century, Chesterton foresaw, and wrote about, in the early 20th century. Social injustice, the culture of death, statism, assaults on religion, and attacks on the family and on the dignity of the human person: Chesterton saw where these trends, already active in his time, would lead us. He was a witty, intelligent, and insightful defender of the poor, the downtrodden, the weak, and especially of the family." ... more
Family Holiness
Family Holiness John Paul II"My heart is oppressed when I see the sin of the world and the whole range of menaces gathering like a dark cloud over mankind. Evil is spreading throughout the world. I read again with trepidation the motherly call to penance, to conversion… that resounded at Fatima sixty-five years ago.

Yes, I read it again with trepidation in my heart, because I see how many people and societies—how many Christians—have gone in the opposite direction to the one indicated in the message of Fatima. Sin has thus made itself firmly at home in the world, and denial of God has become widespread in the ideologies, ideas and plans of human beings.

For this very reason the evangelical call to repentance and conversion, uttered in the Mother's message, remains ever relevant. It is even more relevant than it was sixty-five years ago.

It is even more urgent."
-John Paul II

"The holiness of one profits others, well beyond the harm that the sin of one could cause others." ... more

The World Seen From Rome
ZENIT"ZENIT is a non-profit international news agency comprising a team of professionals and volunteers who are convinced of the extraordinary richness of the Catholic Church's message, particularly its social doctrine. The ZENIT team sees this message as a light for understanding today's world.

At the same time, we are aware that this richness is little known in the information world. This motivates us to strive to bring this message to the Internet, in the greatest possible number of languages.

Our objective is to inform about the "world seen from Rome," with professionalism and faithfulness to the truth. We aim to view the modern world through the messages of the Pope and the Holy See; tell about the happenings of the Church; and inform about the topics, debates and events that are especially interesting to Christians worldwide. ZENIT carries out this service independently.

Our information service focuses on a range of news, primarily:
- The activities of the Pope: apostolic trips, documents, meetings with heads of states and social, cultural and religious figures. We give particular emphasis to the activities of the Holy Father and his addresses.
- Interviews with men and women of the Church, and political and social figures featuring topics of special interest.
- The current international scene, with special emphasis on questions relevant to Christians and the life of the Catholic Church.
- The activities of the Holy See, including diplomatic efforts, humanitarian initiatives and cultural events.
- Social, political and religious topics at the center of public debate. Special attention is given to themes related to the defense of life and the family, social justice, bioethics, euthanasia, abortion, contraception, respect of human rights and religious freedom." ... more

Miles Christi logo
"Miles Christi is a Religious Order formed of Priests and Brothers. We are resolved above all, to fervently pursue sanctity with the grace of God and for His greater glory, dedicating ourselves to the sanctification of the laity, particularly of college students.

Constitutions 12 :
"This Religious Order wishes its ranks to be formed only of a select group of men of great heart, generous, deeply moved by the magnanimity of Christ, indignant at the indifference with which many respond to His love, with an ardent love for Calvary, and eager to serve."

Const. 11:
"A horror for a mediocre, useless, and empty life is deeply rooted in every true miles Christi, who, looking at his Lord on the Cross, asks himself, `What have I done for Christ, what am I doing for Christ, what must I do for Christ?"

"The divine call to sanctity in Miles Christi requires an intense life of prayer-a supremely effective instrument for making us men of God.

For this reason, the interior life is always given first place in our apostolic Army, never allowing ourselves to be blinded by activism or dazzled by the glare of spectacular successes. Above all, we work to attain solid and perfect virtues, a burning affection for spiritual things, purity of intention, and a reverent familiarity with God."

Const. 102:
"The celebration and adoration of the Holy Eucharist constitutes one of the basic foundations of the spiritual life of Miles Christi and, at the same time, is the source from which our religious members daily obtain the strength and graces necessary for a consecrated and apostolic life." read more

Our Lady of the North School
"The word Rosary means "Crown of Roses". Our Lady has revealed to several people that each time they say a Hail Mary they are giving her a beautiful rose and that each complete Rosary makes her a crown of roses. The rose is the queen of flowers, and so the Rosary is the rose of all devotions and it is therefore the most important one." (The Holy Rosary)

"OurLadyWeb.com is a Catholic web site with news, information, photos and more about a Catholic Ministry in a remote part of Canada. L'École Notre Dame du Nord/Our Lady of the North School (LNDN) is a registered non-profit organization, faithful to the Magisterium (Rome). His Holiness John Paul II talked of the need to re-evangelize North America. LNDN works to be part of that in a small way in Northern Saskatchewan. It provides catechism classes and resources for children and adults, makes available an academic education up to grade 12 for children and adults and does charitable work. Although we can not take the place of the declining number of priests, as Christians we need to do more.

LNDN works to serve the North through Christ's love.

OurLadyweb.com is dedicated to serving the Our Lady, the Blessed Virgin Mary. You will also find special news reports and a special section all about Mary, Mother of God.

The North was evangelized by heroes of the faith such as Bishop Charlebois. It continues to be served by faithful priests. However while the rest of the province has a population decline, the North is experiencing a baby boom so that 50% of the population is under 21. Who will reach the hearts and minds of this generation?" read more
Ecclesia Dei logo
"Pope Benedict XVI, while Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, consistently showed his support for those Catholics who wish to worship in the old form of the Mass of the Roman Rite.
In his 1997 book Salt of the Earth, then-Cardinal Ratzinger wrote: "I am of the opinion that the old rite should be granted much more generously to all those who desire it. It's impossible to grasp what could be dangerous or unacceptable about that. A community that suddenly declares that what, until now, was its holiest and highest possession is strictly forbidden makes the longing for it seem downright indecent, calls its very self into question."
"On July 7, 2007, His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI issued his motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, which allows every priest in the Latin Rite to offer the Traditional Latin Mass without permission from his bishop, effective September 14, 2007.

This expands upon the pastoral concern expressed by his predecessor, Pope John Paul II, who in 1984 authorized the Traditional Latin Mass of the Roman Rite to be offered with approval of the local bishop. This was the Mass as was said in every Catholic Church around the world until after Vatican II.

In his Apostolic Letter Ecclesia Dei, (July 2, 1988), His Holiness expanded this earlier permission: "By virtue of my Apostolic Authority I decree ... (that) a wide and generous application" be given the previous directives.

The Mass has grown slowly and steadily since that time in the United States. " read more
