HuffPo Reporter: My Wife is Expecting Twins and Im Not Happy | LifeNews.com.

This is what is wrong with our world.  Selfish, spineless, empty self-indulgent lives that lead to a type of gratification involving nothing that is not immediately pleasing and pleasurable.

There is absolutely no sense of sacrifice or honor in this report, nothing that doesn’t make me worried for the fate of this family or of these children in particular.

I welcome your thoughts on this issue.

LIFE wristband dropped in Walmart parking lot, saves baby from abortion | LifeSiteNews.com.

Reflecting on the fragility of life today, on Easter Sunday.  This story is an amazing testament to the power of each to minister to one another, sometimes without knowing.

Take courage this holy day, courage in the truth of your existence.  Courage that you exist for a purpose… courage that your quest is always yet to be determined.

Trust in God.

“The woman recounted that a few months previous she was dismayed to find herself unexpectedly pregnant. She had gone out shopping to distract herself because she had just scheduled an appointment to get an abortion and was terrified about it. The appointment was two days away.

As the woman walked from her car into Walmart, a red bracelet lying on the ground caught her eye. She picked it up and saw that it had the word LIFE on it. She quickly stowed the bracelet in her purse and continued with her shopping.

That night the woman sat in her room crying, filled with an awful dread about what she was about to do. She was worried about what her parents would think and felt the need to “get rid of the problem.” As well, her boyfriend had abandoned her, making abortion seem like the only choice that was left.

At this point in the woman’s story, Rachel could not hold back her tears any longer. She completely forgot that she was supposed to be working and that she had other tables to serve.”

Catholics and Politics! Is nothing sacred? | Daily Meditations with Fr. Alphonse

Daily Meditations with Fr. Alfonse: Luke 7:31-35 Catholics and Politics!.

“Everyone is an expert today. Everyone. There are very few professions that we still respect. And by respect, I mean those whom I trust may know more than I do with regards to a specific discipline.
Now, I still believe in experts. And I believe in them because I know I can’t be an expert in everything. I simply don’t have enough time to read up on everything.
Early this morning I came up with two professions that I thought we still respected: doctors and lawyers. But as I sit here writing this meditation, I believe I am wrong with regards to doctors. I think we go to the doctors only as a last resort. Why? Because we think we know better. So, we Google our symptoms; we self-diagnosis; we self-prescribe and then we finally go in to see the doctor. When the doctor gives us our medication, we end up not following the instructions. Why? Because we think we know better.

The same holds true for God and the Church. We are like children. And just like children, we tend to put as much trust in God and the Church as a child puts in the wisdom and experience of his/her parents. Not much.

So who do we trust? Superstars! All kinds of them too: music stars, actors and actresses, billionaires and their wives, politicians and their children.”

He goes on to explain the difference in knowledge and wisdom, and dogma vs. propaganda…. worth the read.

‘Which one was conceived in Rape?’: the viral image that deflated pro-abortion rhetoric | LifeSiteNews.com.

“No one understands the flaw in the rape-abortion argument better than Rebecca Kiessling, who at 18 learned that she was conceived in a brutal rape by a serial rapist who held her mother at knife-point.

“Please understand that whenever you identify yourself as being ‘pro-choice,’ or whenever you make that exception for rape,” she writes in her testimony, “what that really translates into is you being able to stand before me, look me in the eye, and say to me, ‘I think your mother should have been able to abort you.’””

Powerful words.

Killing Newborn Babies No Different To Abortion | Huffington Post.

The ‘After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?’ paper argues that the act wouldn’t be classed as euthanasia because the best interest of the foetus or newborn being killed is not necessarily the primary reason his or her life is being terminated. The authors state that after-birth abortion should be made legal and it should be permitted on the same grounds as abortion. They added that it wouldn’t be the same as infanticide.”

…. Are you reading this?  Can you believe what they just said?

It “wouldn’t be euthanasia” because they are not seeking the best interest of the newborn being killed. OBVIOUSLY.

Are you reading this?!?!?!
