Askmeaboutgod.org is the new “home” of The Catholic Treasure Chest website

I’ve lost touch with my old friend Bob Stanley,
of TheCatholicTreasureChest.com
and the original site is no longer on-line.

Bob’s site has been (for the last 20 years or so) one of the finest, most complete, truly Catholic websites on the planet.

According to the informal plan that Bob and I worked up together, many years ago: Should such an event occur, I was to restore the site from a comprehensive backup and get things up and running again, ASAP.

Courtesy of “The Wayback Machine” at web.archive.org, we’re back on-line.

Please tell all your friends and let me know ASAP about any outages or malfunctions.

A great, joyous, old fashioned Advent hymn

Monsignor Charles Pope maintains a daily blog that is one of the finest Catholic sites I know … right up there with Bob Stanley’s Catholic Treasure Chest. But unlike the Treasure Chest, Monsignor Pope’s site paces the liturgical year.

Today, the good monsignor shares with us an ancient, favorite Advent hymn, along with a very insightful article.

Take some time to listen and to read. Then, add both sites mentioned above to your favorites!

Suddenly!

Is The Way In Which GOD Works…

The ways of GOD are sudden and without warning.

A miracle happens. A vision or a locution is bestowed upon someone. A loved one is taken.

GOD does not normally give prior notice of what he is about to do.

One noticeable exception to this general rule was the great ‘Miracle of the Sun’ at Fatima on October 13, 1917.

It was revealed ahead of time by GOD through the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Some people live their entire lives without serving GOD in any way and seem to think that on their death bed they will repent and make their peace with Him.

We must all be prepared to go at anytime. Look what happened to Princess Diana, Princess Grace, John F. Kennedy, and many others who were taken without warning.

Were they all prepared and in GOD’S grace and ready to go?

If we are going on a trip in this life, do we not prepare for it a long time in advance?

Why then do so many not prepare for their final eternal trip, the only trip that really matters?
