On this most sorrowful day in Irish history.
“When the time comes, as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the final judgment, I’ve often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates, you are there alone standing before God — and a terror will rip your soul like nothing you can imagine. But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there’ll be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world — and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement. They will say to God, ‘Spare him, because he loved us!'”
Congressman Henry Hyde
Tears of joy are being shed today in St. Patrick’s Ireland. I’m sure that if St. Patrick was still walking the Emerald Isles, he’d be crying today, too . . . but not for the same reason.
Hard as it is to believe, the excitement is over the legalization of killing babies in the womb. Women are rejoicing at finally having the choice to rid themselves of inconveniences aka babies. Why hasn’t any pro-abort woman ever stopped to think that while they want the freedom to be women with a choice over their body, they are often aborting as yet unborn females. Are they segregating themselves from a bunch of female-shaped fetal cells because they can’t see and hold those baby girls and refuse to even contemplate they might be doing away someone that would mean the world to them . . . BUT, only it was convenient.
Over the years, more and more proof (like any warm-blooded person really needed it) has come forth showing that babies in the womb hear you, respond to your voice and show up on ultrasounds as viable beings. Babies in the womb can also feel so being poisoned or ripped from limb to limb and dragged from the body of the only home they know up to then is a sad thought. God planned a much better welcome to the world for leaving the womb they called Mother for so long.
I wonder . . . do you think the snakes will come back to Ireland?
One day, Padre Pellegrino asked Padre Pio: “Father, this morning you denied absolution to a lady who confessed to an abortion. Why have you been so rigorous with this poor unfortunate? “.
Padre Pio said: “The day, in which people, frightened by the economic boom, from physical damages or from economic sacrifices, will lose the horror of the abortion, it will be the most terrible day for humanity. Abortion is not only homicide but also suicide. And with these people we see on the point of committing two crimes…do we want to show our faith? Do we want to save them? ”
“Why suicide?” Padre Pellegrino asked.
“You would understand this suicide of the human race, if with the eye of reason, you could see the Heart populated by old men and depopulated by children: burnt as a desert.”
Vivisection means literally “to cut up something that’s alive,” and it’s the term used for operating on live animals for scientific research. We probably recall one instance or another where there was protest against labs using animals for scientific research this way. After all, an animal is a helpless creature who relies on people to survive this world. However, it is legal to vivisect a child in the womb in the world today. Fortunately, among the 194 nations globally, there are only ( and ‘only’ is still too much!) seven countries that legally allow this cruelty to be done on an unborn human baby. The seven countries where this is permitted are:
Canada (No restriction in law)
China (No restriction in law)
Netherlands (24 week)
North Korea (No restriction in law)
Singapore (24 weeks)
United States (viability)
Viet Nam (No restriction in law)
In the past month, there was an effort to stop this reign of terror on the unborn but, fourteen CATHOLIC UNITED STATE SENATORS DEFIED most of Congress, the President, and the majority of United States Public opinion so the United States remains a part of the death squad.
Even more sad is that of the fourteen CATHOLIC (in name only at this point!) only one of the Senators has been excommunicated by his bishop, Bishop Paprocki. Where is the outrage from our clergy? Why aren’t the bishops making known and promoting Catholic teaching in the face of this? How can they continue to give them the Sacraments to these senators after they publically made their very un-Catholic views known and voted accordingly?
Although it should be extremely surprising, remember over 50 percent of the Catholic vote voted an adamant pro-abort president into the White House TWICE.
