1: End-Time Prophecies  by Ralph Martin.  There seems to be two major prophetic streams flowing in the Catholic Church today: Pope John Paul II and Mary, the mother of Jesus.  Learn what they are saying.  It could change your life.

2: Let There Be Love by Jim Murphy.  When love, true Godly love touches a person, the change is astounding.  We must learn the pattern to yielding to Love.

3: Duties to Church & State by Rev. Joseph Landi, Editor.    Rendering "unto Caesar" doesn't mean we have to stick our heads in the sand and let the government dictate how we should "render unto God."   Listen to what the Church is saying.  You'll never be wrong.

4: The Unspeakable Crime by Rev. J. Michael Miller, C.S.B.  The logic of biblical doctrine, as well as the clear and unanimous witness of the church's tradition and teaching, hold abortion to be a particularly grave moral disorder.

5: Who Benefits by a Global Economy  by Rev.  John S. Rausch.  The underlying question remains: "How to make the global economy more inclusive?"

6: Preferential Love for the Poor by Pope John Paul II.  Christians, together with all people of good will, must contribute, by appropriate economic and political measures, to free humanity from the plague of poverty.    What can you do to help?

7: The Joy & Sadness of Christmas Reflections on the message: "You are not alone."  Everyone needs to hear that message.  We are  very small creatures, inhabiting a very small planet in one corner of a very large universe.   Christ brought us a personal message from God the Father.  Do you know it?

8: Primal Sin and Mary   We live in a time of great moral uncertainty.  Our troubles go deeper than the age-old division between the good people and the evil people.  What is the Voice saying to you?
