Widely thought to be the Churches leading expert on Marriage and the Family and one of the Four 'DUBA' Cardinal's, the Italian Cardinal passed away this Morning after a long illness. Cardinal Carlos Caffarra, the Archbishop Emeritus of Bologna and one of the Original Four Cardinals to sign the Duba sent to POPE FRANCES, has died suddenly at the age of 79. The Cardinal who led the Diocese if Bologna for nearly 12 years from 2003 until 2015 passed to Our LORD; this Morning. The sounds of the Bells in the Bologna Archdiocese announced news of the Cardinal's death.

Arguably the Church's leading expert on Marriage and the Family for decades, POPE ST JOHN PAUL II, gave Cardinal Caffarra the mandate to found the PONTIFICAL JOHN PAUL II instituted for studies on MARRIAGE AND FAMILY in 1981. Born in Saboseto di Busseto, in the providence of Fidenza, Cardinal Caffarra was ordained Priest in 1961, specialized in Canon Law and Moral Theology before focusing on exploring themes of Marriage, Family, and Human procreation in the 1970's. He stressed he was driven to devote his time to this area due to requests made 'BY MANY MARRIED AND ENGAGED COUPLES TO BE INTRODUCED TO THE GREAT CHRISTIAN VIEW OF MARRIAGE' in the years of discussion that followed publication of Blessed PAUL VI encylical, 'HUMANAE VITAE'.

In one of his last talks, to the Rome Life Forum in May, He said "THE ULITIMATE AND TERRIBLE CHALLENGE" to show Satan is capable of constructing an "ANTI-CREATION" mankind will be deceived into thinking that it is better what GOD has Created. He warned that elevating abortion to a 'SUBJECTIVE RIGHT' and equating Homosexual Relationship to Marriage represented the destruction of "TWO PILLARS OF CREATION".

He would never forget the last words of Sister Lucia of Fatima’s letter. "Words that are engraved in my heart".  Sister Lucia wrote, "There will come a time when the decisive confrontation between the KINGDOM OF GOD and Satan will take place over Marriage and the Family". He said she understood that those who are going to work for Marriage and the Family 'WILL UNDERGO TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS' but added, 'DO NOT FEAR, OUR LADY HAS ALREADY CRUSHED HIS HEAD".

Mother Terresa wrote this: BRING LOVE INTO YOUR HOME:

"It is easy to Love the people far away, but it is not always easy to Love those close to us.It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger, than to relieve the loneliness and pain to someone unloved in our own home.  So bring Love into Your Home for this is where our Love for each other must start".

Let us Pray: "O GOD, thou didst raised, Thy servant Cardinal Carlos Caffarra, to the Sacred Priesthood of JESUS CHRIST, according to the Order of Melchisedech, giving Him the sublime power to offer the Eternal Sacrifice, to bring the BODY and BLOOD of thy Son JESUS CHRIST down upon the alter, and to absolve the sins of men in Thine own HOLY NAME. We beseech Thee to reward His Faithfulness and ro forget His faults, admitting Him speedily into Thy HOLY Presence, there to enjoy forever the recompense of His Labors. This we ask through JESUS CHRIST Thy SON, Our LORD.        Amen
