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.

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?!?!?!

When feminists hate abortion | Washington Times.

Some powerful words from the Washington Times.

“PRENDA or a bill like it will return in the next Congress and probably every subsequent one until it passes. It’s a useful tool for forcing abortion supporters to go on the record that killing babies is more important to them than preventing discrimination. Hopefully, some day, stopping the practice altogether will be the law of the land.”

The tragedy of sex-selection abortion | LifeSiteNews.com.

“On Sunday, June 26, CNN aired a heart-breaking report, “Nepal’s Stolen Children.” The documentary, narrated by actress Demi Moore, told the story of Nepalese girls who were sold into slavery and turned into prostitutes in neighboring India. During the broadcast Moore broke down and cried and spoke about making sure this kind of thing never happens again. While no one can disagree with that, the problem is that we are ignoring an important part of what is driving this inhumane traffic in innocence. That “part” was the subject of a New York Times column the day after the broadcast. The title, “160 Million and Counting,” referred to the number of “missing” women in the world. Not “missing” as in “disappeared,” rather, as in “never born in the first place.”

While the practice of sex-selection abortion originated among the more affluent, it eventually spread down the social ladder. And this brings us back to the tragedy in Nepal. The impact of selective abortion goes beyond the lives ended in the womb, horrid as that is – it affects society. A 2008 article by two Loyola Law School professors found that by reducing the number of potential brides, selective abortion in India increased the demand for sex workers. And one way that “demand” is being filled is through the Nepalese girls featured in the CNN documentary. The “lucky” ones are “smuggled and purchased from poor countries like Nepal and Bhutan to be brides for Indian men.” The more unfortunate are sold into the Indian sex trade.”

The effects of messing with the natural order are far-stretched and felt in every area of society ….. impacting it in ways we are yet to imagine.

 

Pray for these girls and their families, and their cultures, that the birth of baby girls may once again become the joyous occasion it is meant to be.
