  1. What would we do without PAX CHRIST ! Thank you Staff for all you DO and all you ARE !Catherine Martin

  2. Please give us the correct e-mail address to check on our national gathering conference reservations and who to send our meal and workshop choices to.

    We sent our reservations and payment in my snail mail and only Joyce received info regarding meal and workshop choices and even she was provided with an incorrect e-mail address and phone number.

    Please respond soon. Most gratefully, Joyce

  3. Pray for your enemies

    In front of Jesus terrified demons shouted: “Mark1 [24]” What do you want with us Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. “[25] And Jesus rebuked him: “Shut up! Out of him” [26] And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out him”. What can be the ruin of these creatures if they are condemned to eternal damnation? Simple: the resurrection to eternal life. The blood of the Living Passion of N.S. Jesus Christ has the power to resurrect in life all that is dead in sin.

    It means that if we have faith and pray we can eliminate the root cause of all evil ho humanity and bring the world back to its original splendor. That’s why Jesus insisted on the need to pray for our enemies: “pray for your enemies”. Our real enemies are not our similar but the demons that put them there against. If we pray for them the Lord heals and turning them into angels of light. All disputes and divisions end up in nothing and peace returned. Repeat everyday on all rosary beads the following invocation:

    Holy Father in name of Jesus and for the tears of Mary sends the Holy Spirit
    and grant your mercy to all creatures living and dead, and to the same extent,
    at the demons that disturb the sinners, hunters, fishermen, carnivores and
    inflict death degrees to the created. St.George

  4. Thank you all for your wonderful and inspiring tribute to Mary Evelyn Jegen, S.N.D. deN., and all the work you do to continue the legacy she began.

  5. Just finished reading the thoughtful Christmas message .
    May God bless all the women in the body of Christ
    Who are struggling to live a meaningful life inside a
    Patriarchal structure from the blessed mother,Mary, on down
    To now.
