Martyrology-April 2nd
Roman Martyrology-April 2nd-on this date in various years-

At Tours in France, St. Francis of Paula, founder of the Order of Minims. Because he was renowned for virtues and miracles, he was inscribed among the saints by Pope Leo X.

At Caesarea in Palestine, during the persecution of Galerius Maximian, the birthday of the martyr St. Amphian. He reproved the governor Urban for sacrifícing to idols, so his body was cruelly cut in shreds, his feet wrapped in oil-soaked cloths, and set on fire. After these painful torments, he was cast into the sea. Thus through fire and water, he reached his everlasting repose. read more

Divine Intervention?

It has been said that the only thing that can save the Church in this sea of apostasy is Divine Intervention. This is postulated because it appears that Rome has, indeed, lost the Faith due to the many heresies and sacrileges present in the Church during our times reaching even to the highest levels of the hierarchy itself. As a layman, I can only say: “Who am I to judge?” But, the intervention we seek may indeed have already occurred, not only in the many miracles that Our Lord performed during his sojourn on earth but many times since in the form of Eucharistic Miracles. So, it seems to me a good idea to provide a link to a description of these miracles so that we can take comfort in the fact that Our Lord is really still in charge no matter what the enemies of the Church present to us as the “truth.” The link is: www.acfp2000.com/Miracles/eucharistic.html read more
