Family Day Roman style

  These pictures are amazing.  Imagine what could have been done with the support or encouragement of the Vatican. These photos were taken only in the Circus Maximus but, for honesty’s record, we must stress that many participants have preferred to attend the adjacent spaces.   “How many people are there today in the square? –   Wondered last night a participant on a social network –   I do not know and do not care much.   But I think just the idea that hundreds of thousands of people to move FREELY, without rich and powerful lobby behind, without the money moguls, without godparents famous rock singers, actors actresses etc etc … it is already in itself a great thing.   I don’t know if Italy will...

Felony charge for Planned Parenthood accusers

This is what it means to expose the darkness of the abortion industry today: Indict the the director of the Center for Medical Progress, David Daleiden and clear Planned Parenthood of any wrongdoing.    “Mr. Daleiden has been praised as a hero by some religious opponents of abortion.”   He is. The comments following this article in the New York Times are all the evidence one needs of how invested this culture of death is in abortion. I stopped after this exchange: Lida shad lakeland Do I go home and celebrate or cry after I abort a human life. I guess it doesn’t matter.                         ——–  ——– M Rudd Fairfax, VA Do whatever YOU choose to do. It’s your body. That’s the point. It...

The long and short of it

The long and short of it

  Looking back on some older posts and thanking Lord for only two more classes to go to complete my Advanced Catechist Certification.. It was and is … all grace.     I just finished a book I’d put off reading for several years, mainly because I’d heard mixed reviews about the author. Read his early works people said, not his later writings. Well, I assumed since I was away from the church so long I couldn’t be bothered filtering through someone’s writings who wasn’t a saint. There’s too much to catch up on; too many mystics who can stir the soul in only one chapter, or doctors of the church who can quench a question before you realize you have one.   But, I needed a book for another class I’m taking, which is why I haven’t written...

The true weapon

The true weapon

  In anticipation of the March for Life in Washington tomorrow, here is a re post from January 2013…   I couldn’t be at the March for Life in Washington yesterday, but wanted to do something besides pray at home..I went to the local abortion clinic which is about ten minutes from my house, where I’ve often prayed during the 40 Days for Life campaign. The facility sits in a plaza off a main highway where when keeping vigil, we’re permitted to stand by the main road, not allowed beyond a certain point in the parking lot.   Yesterday, no one was by the roadside praying, so I decided to sit in my car parked right outside the office of that death mill and pray the rosary. Sadly, as at other times, I witnessed a young woman exit after...
