Assisting the Church Toward Preparedness & Sustainability in Changing Times
Yes...we've got some news....
Nomen Christi Apostolate is undergoing a complete re-design, both in terms of the website and the structure/philosophy of the ministry. This will take some time to iron out all the details and what we really need from you right now is PRAYER!
In the meantime, being that I have spent the last seven years of my life building an audience for my writing and philosophy, I will be

november is the month of the holy souls in purgatory.
eternal rest give to them, o lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
From the New Marian Missal, Veritas Press:
"The practice of recommending to God the souls in Purgatory that we my mitigate the great pains which they suffer, and that He may soon bring them to His glory, is most pleasing to God, and most profitable to us. For those blessed souls are His eternal spouses, and they are most grateful to those who obtain their deliverance from prison, or even a mitigation of their torments. Hence, when they shall enter into heaven, they will certainly not forget those who prayed for them. It is a pious belief that God manifests to them our prayers for them, that they also may pray for us. Let us recommend to Jesus Christ, and to His holy Mother, all the souls in Purgatory but especially those of our relatives, benefactors, friends, and enemies, and still more particularly, the souls of those for whom we are bound to pray; and let us consider the great pains which these holy spouses of Jesus Christ endure..."
pray the rosary!
......and one more thing.......pray & prep!

to be holy is this:
to see the sage in the smallest child
to see the dancer in the lame
to hear the great orator in the silence of the mute
to see the visionary in the blind
to see the saint in the sinner

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Steve Jobs 1955-2011 Rest in Peace
(I've been obsessed with Steve Jobs lately. I've watched every film ever made about him, and there have been a number. I think he was fascinating and amazing even though he made everything I hate...I know, I'm a hypocrite, I use the stuff even though I hate it. Please pray for his dear soul.)
