Never vote for a Politician who is not pro-life

If you vote for a politician who is in favour of abortion, you will get exactly what you voted for.  The Politician won’t care about your life either.  You will be too old to live, to sick to live or too handicapped to live etc.  An abortion minded politican will not care about you, just as he or she does not care about the unborn. The unborn are real people just like you and I, and you and I have a duty to protect them.

Saving paper and money (commonsense)

When I was doing a secretarial course which included learning to type on a typewriter, I did one of the specified exercises, which involved formatting a long business letter. The teacher said that I had done it well, but that it should not have been continued on the back of the paper, but on a second sheet of paper.  I have always thought that was idiotic. What a waste of trees.  Blessed Mary MacKillop of Australia had an interesting approach.  She wrote her letter down the page (in the portrait position) and then turned the paper to a landscape position and wrote the rest of the letter across it!  This would have been a bit of a problem for the reader, but she was a very neat writer and it could be read.  Later on she also learnt to type on a typewriter. No doubt she did her double writing technique on the back of the paper also.

She was a greenie before greenies existed!  Now I hear that the USA wants to save money in order to pay for their immoral health scheme, (which has everything tied to abortion)  so one of the government departments there is saving money by using both sides of the paper!  It is amazing that it took them so long to think of something so simple!

A great post on Fr Z’s blog regarding not toning down the Rhetoric regarding the great sin of abortion

Father Z has written a great post on his blog entitled:  The Problem With Toning Down the Rhetoric – And Why We Probably Won’t Do It. This post is to do with dealing with the great sin of abortion.  I recommend this post to you.

Notre Dame University nuttiness

Notre Dame University is no longer Catholic.  They have put pro-lifers including a Catholic priest into jail for protesting the honouring of President Obama (a very abortion minded president).  Why would any Catholic university honour him? No Catholic parent should waste money sending their child there. Send your child to a real Catholic university where their Catholic faith is taught and respected.

Today is Mother’s Day

Our parish priest is on holidays and we have a retired priest filling in for the month.  At the end of the Vigil Mass last night, Father gave each mother present at the Mass, a signed card (for mother’s day) with the following quote of St Therese on it:

The loveliest masterpiece of the heart of God is the heart of a mother. 

The card was decorated with roses. I was especially pleased because I have been praying to St Therese for a very important intention and that has given me encouragement regarding that matter. 

I know that Mother’s Day is a secular celebration and is also commercialized at that, but Anna Jarvis (the American lady)* who started it to honour her own mother never intended it to be that way. 

In this age where abortion has become so widespread, it does not hurt to give a genuine approach to mother’s day, recognizing the importance of mothers and babies. No pope, priest, layperson, scientist, king, queen, president**, teacher, tradesman, etc., ever got here without a mother*** yet mothers are so despised. They are supposed to go to hospital, get the baby out and turn up at their ‘real job’ in the office, in the parliament, on the board of executives etc. next week. 

Today is not only mother’s day, but it is also my own mother’s birthday. She has always liked the film: The Song of Bernadette, since it was first released in 1943 when she was a child, so I am giving her a DVD of that film. 

*Anna Jarvis was never a mother herself. (She never married). 

**President Obama your own mother Anne made sure you were born and grew up.  Let other babies be born and grown up. I send the same message to Hillary and to many other politicians and others around the world. 

***There are two exceptions to this. Adam and Eve never had an earthly mother, because they started out as adults with a lot going for them.

Abortion (find out what it really looks like)

It is a good idea to confront people with graphic pictures of what an aborted baby looks like.  Father Frank Pavone highly recommends showing these pictures. He receives emails everyday from people who supported abortion and then changed their position to being pro-life immediately, upon seeing the pictures of abortion on the Priests for Life website. Pregnant women who have seen pictures of aborted babies have cancelled their abortion. Seeing is believing. Priests for Life have been trying to get TV stations to show these images for some time.  Father Pavone does not even ask for a message to be given with the TV images.  The images speak for themselves.  Showing pictures of the reality of something is sometimes the only way to get people to come out of denial.  On TV there are horrible video images of the inside of a smoker’s lungs. Smokers who are hooked on smoking like to switch off to arguments against it.  The TV video images of a smoker’s damaged lungs can’t be argued with. Likewise TV campaigns against speeding and drink driving show the ugly reality of a fatal car accident.  Pictures speak louder than words.

Defending Life (a pro-life programe on EWTN)

I recommend to everyone to watch the EWTN programme: Defending Life that is hosted by Fr Frank Pavone and Janet Morana.  It is a programme about pro-life issues. This programme talks about abortion and euthanasia and how they effect people and give strategies to bring abortion to an end.  They also have prayer campaigns to stop abortion and these are proving to be very successful.

If you do not have EWTN, The programe can be viewed on live TV on the EWTN website as well.
