Pope Pius XII - Saved hundreds of thousands

Pope Piux XII                                    

I just watched this today. I  have heard people in discussing the Catholic church's role during the time of the holocaust put down the Catholic church, especially they put down Pope Pius XII.  I used to believe some of the lies, also. Little by little I am learning the truth.

This video definitely debunks the theory that the Catholic church did nothing. It isn't just a video of talks but it shows concrete evidence with documents and statements.  Worth watching.  I would love it if a wonderful Catholic would make a movie about his life. There is a documentary I have yet to watch called, A Hand of Peace.

Dear Lord help us to educate our family for your glory.

"Since parents have conferred life on their children, they have a most solemn obligation to educate their offspring. Hence, parents must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children. Their role as educators is so decisive that scarcely anything can compensate for their failure in it. For it devolves on parents to create a family atmosphere so animated with love and reverence for God and others that a well-rounded personal and social development will be fostered among children. Hence, the family is the first school of those social virtues which every society needs."--Gravissimum Educationis (one of the documents of the Second Vatican Council)

Visit the sick

Visit the imprisoned

The Spiritual Works of Mercy
Admonish the sinner

Comfort the sorrowful
Bear wrongs patiently

Forgive all injuries

Pray for the living and the dead
