Generation Life, College, EWTN

Last night I happily watched a college friend of mine on EWTN’s Life on the Rock (you can catch them again at 7pm today, Friday 23rd).  She is the director of Generation Life, an amazing pro-life ministry that reaches out to the nation and the world!  I would strongly encourage you to go and see the work they’re doing at www.generationlife.org.  And please click the “Donate” button!

It was great to see such wonderful energy and happiness in a would generally filled with “doom and gloom” nowadays!

Great Article about birth control and society

Check it out: here

A snippet about Pope Pius VI in the article:

He warned of four results if the widespread use of contraceptives was accepted:

1. General lowering of moral standards
2. A rise in infidelity, and illegitimacy
3. The reduction of women to objects used to satisfy men.
4. Government coercion in reproductive matters.

I think that we can see areas where Humanae vitae was prophetic.

 

“Truth is not determined by majority vote.” His Eminence Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (H.H. Pope Benedict XVI)

Sen. Rick Santorum speaks the truth

Last night, I was falling asleep watching television and had the opportunity to see Sen. Santorum’s victory speech.  It was very good, very positive, and on the mark:

The president over the last few years has tried to tell you that he, in fact, the government can give you rights, the government can take care of you and provide for you. They can give you the right to health care, like in Obamacare.

But look what happens when the government gives you rights. When the government gives you rights, unlike when God gives you rights, the government can take them away. When government gives you rights, the government can tell you how to exercise those rights.

And we saw that just in the last week, with a group of people, a small group of people, just Catholics in the United States of America who were told you have a right to health care, but you will have the health care that we tell you, you have to give your people, whether it is against the teachings of your church or not.

Now, I am not the citizen who believes that we need to eliminate government and that the government is bad, after all, I work for the state.  We do need to realize that WE are the government.  We don’t elect a man to sit as king, caesar, dictator, or tyrant.  We elect a man to act as the president of the executive branch.  We elect people to sit as representatives to congress, and their jobs are not to put us under the thumb and squash us, but rather to represent us.

Recently at a doctor’s office, I saw a sign that said “Patients… do not interrupt our work, they are the reason we work.”  All forms of government which concentrate power in the hands of individuals risk that power becoming corrupting.  We must band together and remember that rights are not man made, because men are fleeting, but rather we must strive to encounter God and His love, which give us all true rights.

Lourdes, day 2 part 2

During the Marian procession tonight I ran to the first English banner I could find. I met a family and the son, about 12 immidiately said, “you miss hearing English don’t you?”. It turned out that there were only those three and the banner holder. The banner said, “say a prayer, save a life” and had a rosary shaped like a baby in the womb.

The man, Mike, is a Canadian and runs a pro life center in Lourdes. After talking during the procession he let me carry the banner, including to the front of the basilica where I held it for the rest of the prayers facing the throngs of people. Tonight’s procession was much, much larger than last night’s!

From June through October 2010, if you’re in Lourdes you can help with or just visit the Pro-life movement at:
Centre Internatinal pour la Vie
24 Rue du Bourg
65100 Lourdes
From 10am-7pm (10h-19h)
