The Wonders of the Holy Name
This booklet, "The Wonders of the Holy Name," reveals the simplest secret of holiness and happiness ever. For it shows us how we can pray "without ceasing," pray "always," and pray "at all times," as Holy Scripture exhorts us. And since prayer is the key to the Heart of God, this little booklet can easily be the key to obtaining incredible graces and favors from Him both for ourselves and for others. This issue ultimately is the salvation of souls and peace in the world. Approved by his eminence the Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon in 1947.

Rome Newsroom, Jan 10, 2021 / 02:30 pm MT (CNA).- In the face of political discord and self-interest, we have an obligation to promote unity, peace, and the common good in society and in the Catholic Church, Pope Francis said Sunday.
“At this moment, a politician, even a manager, a bishop, a priest, who does not have the ability to say ‘we’ is not up to par. ‘We,’ the common good of all, must prevail. Unity is superior to conflict,” the pope said in an interview that aired on Italian news program Tg5 Jan. 10. Read More...

Important Daily Prayers
For the Month of January 2021
Month of the Holy Name of Jesus
The month of January is dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus, which is celebrated on January 3. The first ten days of January fall during the liturgical season known as Christmas which is represented by the liturgical color white — the color of light, a symbol of joy, purity and innocence. The remaining days of January are the beginning of Ordinary Time, which is represented by the liturgical color green. This symbol of hope is the color of the sprouting seed and arouses in the faithful the hope of reaping the eternal harvest of heaven, especially the hope of a glorious resurrection. It is used in the offices and Masses of Ordinary Time.
The Holy Father's Intentions for the Month of January 2021

Highlights of the Month
In the first part of January we continue to rejoice and celebrate Christ's coming at Bethlehem and in our hearts. We have the wonderful feasts of Mary, Mother of God, where we honor Mary's highest title, and then we follow the Magi to the crib as they bring their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh on Epiphany. Finally we reach the culmination of this season with the Baptism of Our Lord by St. John the Baptist. With a touch of sadness we take down our decorations and enter into the liturgical period known as Ordinary Time where we will devote ourselves to the mystery of Christ in its entirety.
This is a time of growth and an opportunity to allow the dignity of Sunday to shine forth prolonging the joy of Easter and Pentecost. Besides those previously mentioned the month's major feasts include: Mary Mother of God (January 1), St. Basil the Great and St. Gregory Nazianzen (January 2), St. Elizabeth Ann Seton (January 4), St. John Neumann (January 5), St. Andre Bessette (January 6), St. Raymond of Penafort (January 7), Sts. Fabian and Sebastian (January 20), St. Agnes (January 21), St. Vincent of Saragossa (January 23), the Conversion of St. Paul (January 25), Sts. Timothy and Titus (January 26), St. Angela Merici (January 27), and St. Thomas Aquinas (January 28).
The feasts of Holy Name of Jesus (January 3), St. Anthony, abbot (January 17), St. Francis de Sales (January 24) and St. John Bosco (January 31) are superseded by the Sunday liturgy.
The Winter Seasons
The opening days of January may be cold and nature bleak, but the domestic church still glows warm with the peace and joy of Christmas. We dedicate the New Year to Mary on the January 1st Solemnity honoring her as Mother of God; and on January 7, the Solemnity of Epiphany, we rejoice with her, as her Son is adored by the three Wise Men.
St. John, who ushered in the Advent season, is present once again to close Christmastide on the feast of the Baptism of Our Lord (The First Luminous Mystery), and to open the Season of Ordinary Time. He points to Jesus, the Lamb of God who unites time and eternity in the Eucharistic Sacrifice, and even January’s diminishing darkness seems to echo St. John’s prayer: “He must increase and I must decrease.”
In this liturgical season the Church eagerly follows Our Lord as he gathers his apostles and announces his mission. At Cana’s wedding feast (The Second Luminous Mystery) he performs his first public miracle at the request of his Mother, and his disciples saw his glory and believed in him.
We, Jesus' present-day disciples, pray for a like faith as we contemplate the eternal wedding feast of the Lamb and the unique role of the Blessed Mother in the plan of salvation. May we wholeheartedly obey her words of counsel: “Do whatever he tells you.”

The Angel's Prayer of Fatima
"Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly, and I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of the same Son Jesus Christ, present in the Tabernacles of the world, in reparation for all the sacrileges, outrages and indifferences by which He Himself is offended. And by the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners. Amen"
Prayer To Our Heavenly Father
My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You!
I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe,
do not adore, do not hope and do not love You. Amen
(Say this prayer frequently each day as it was taught
to the three children by the Angel at Fatima)

Many Catholics dream of visiting the holy Marian shrines but may find it too expensive to do so. With modern technology, the Catholic Church has found ways to make the Marian shrines available to all people by allowing Catholics and all Christians to ask petitions and to view the Marian shrines live on location. Please take the time to spend some time with Our Blessed Mother at Her shrines and email your petitions to Her. You can also listen to the information about the various Marian apparitions. Click on the names of the Shrines to be transported to those locations and click on the stories of Our Lady.
St. Catherine of Siena describes about the vision of the hell. We need to all make sure that we change our lives so that we all will attain heavenly salvation and not eternal destruction. If you have sinned, please go to confession as soon as possible so that you will again be united with God and Our Lord Jesus. Then, make sure that you do not continue to offend God or Our Lord anymore.
It is extremely important that single Catholics throughout the world learn about their faith. There are some Catholics who were not catechized well as children and did not learn much about their faith at that young age. As adult Catholics, we must all get to know what our Catholic faith teaches so that no one is ignorant of the faith.
Take the time now to read the online version of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Once you learn more about your Catholic faith, you can then help to pass on that information to family and many others. Click here
