Many Years Ago

September 30, 2014

“Many years ago, my father was a Jewish physician in Braunau, Austria. On one particular day, two babies had been delivered by one of his colleagues. One was a fine healthy boy with a strong cry. His parents were extremely proud and happy. The other was a little girl, but her parents were extremely sad, for she was a Mongoloid (Down Syndrome) baby. I followed them both for almost 50 years. The girl grew up, living at home, and was finally destined to be the one who nursed her mother through a very long and lingering illness after a stroke. I do not remember her name. I do, however, remember the boy’s name. He died in a bunker in Berlin. His name was Adolf Hitler.”
~ Jerome Lejeune, should have received the Nobel Prize for the discovery of the Down Syndrome gene ~

 


Giving Love In Abundance

Some parents are chosen to have an extra special person in their life like this little girl, Kathleen Rose.  These parents say everything that is clear to us in the prolife movement about why abortion is so wrong for every child conceived.

Feast of Michael, Gabriel & Raphael Archangel

September 29, 2014

The liturgy celebrates the feast of these three archangels who are venerated in the tradition of the Church. Michael (Who is like God?) was the archangel who fought against Satan and all his evil angels, defending all the friends of God. He is the protector of all humanity from the snares of the devil. Gabriel (Strength of God) announced to Zachariah the forthcoming birth of John the Baptist, and to Mary, the birth of Jesus. His greeting to the Virgin, “Hail, full of grace,” is one of the most familiar and frequent prayers of the Christian people. Raphael (Medicine of God) is the archangel who took care of Tobias on his journey.

St. Michael
The name of the archangel Michael means, in Hebrew, who is like unto God? and he is also known as “the prince of the heavenly host.” He is usually pictured as a strong warrior, dressed in armor and wearing sandals. His name appears in Scripture four times, twice in the Book of Daniel, and once each in the Epistle of St. Jude and the Book of Revelation. From Revelation we learn of the battle in heaven, with St. Michael and his angels combatting Lucifer and the other fallen angels (or devils). We invoke St. Michael to help us in our fight against Satan; to rescue souls from Satan, especially at the hour of death; to be the champion of the Jews in the Old Testament and now Christians; and to bring souls to judgment.

St. Gabriel
St. Gabriel’s name means “God is my strength”. Biblically he appears three times as a messenger. He had been sent to Daniel to explain a vision concerning the Messiah. He appeared to Zachary when he was offering incense in the Temple, to foretell the birth of his son, St. John the Baptist. St. Gabriel is most known as the angel chosen by God to be the messenger of the Annunciation, to announce to mankind the mystery of the Incarnation.

The angel’s salutation to our Lady, so simple and yet so full of meaning, Hail Mary, full of grace, has become the constant and familiar prayer of all Christian people.

St. Raphael
Our knowledge of the Archangel Raphael comes to us from the book of Tobit. His mission as wonderful healer and fellow traveller with the youthful Tobias has caused him to be invoked for journeys and at critical moments in life. Tradition also holds that Raphael is the angel that stirred the waters at the healing sheep pool in Bethesda. His name means “God has healed”.

As we celebrate the Feast of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, let us be reminded of what the Church teaches us in the Catechism of the Catholic Church: “From infancy to death human life is surrounded by their watchful care and intercession.” “Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life…” Here on earth the Christian life shares by faith in the blessed company of angels and men united in God.” (CCC No. 336). Let us, therefore, seek their help in times of our need. They are God’s messengers. We can communicate with God through them. God makes his presence felt by us through them as well.

We have just heard of a girl who is 15 weeks pregnant with an abortion booked for next week.  Please keep her in your prayers and thoughts and pass it on to anyone else you know who would pray too.

Many thanks.


Gift From God or Product of Rape?

September 26, 2014

 The next time you hear someone say they are against abortion except in cases of rape, think about little Isabella and understand that she is a child, not an exception.

Read what Lauran and Isabella both have to say:

Lauran

I was your ordinary girl, ready to start my senior year in high school. And like most high school girls I was thinking about things like Friday night football games, which college I would get into, and finishing off the year walking across the stage getting my hard earned diploma. Making choices that only affected me. Little did I know, there was someone out there thinking only of himself and about to make a selfish choice that was going to affect me for the rest of my life.

One month into my senior year of high school, I found out that through one boy’s selfish desires, and lack of respect for me, I was pregnant, through rape. The next eight months were filled with obstacles to overcome, acceptance of dreams that might not come true, and the reality that I had to complete what I started in order to get my diploma in spite of my situation.

Twelve weeks into my pregnancy, I came face to face with my little girl as I had my first ultrasound. Wow! It was at that very moment that I knew I was destined to be her mommy and she was destined to be my daughter. Abortion was never an option for me, but it was at this moment that I truly realized why. Life is a precious, sacred gift and it is not ours to choose whether life should end because of inconvenience or because of the circumstance of conception. I learned something so valuable in those eight months. I was not the person outsiders assumed I was. I was stronger than I ever knew possible. I had developed the heart of a mommy.

In spite of the circumstances of her conception, I began to realize that my daughter was not a creation of violence, she was a gift from God, the creator of life. It was that realization that changed my perspective completely. One week after graduation Isabella Grace came into the world. I thought I had been strong for the past 9 months but I had no idea how much stronger I would become because of this beautiful little girl. I have taken on obstacles that girls my age couldn’t imagine having to face and I have come out on top. It’s not because of my strength alone, but it is God who gives me strength, every minute of everyday. Alone, I could not do this.

Isabella

I love my mom. I love my whole family. I think its cool that I have just my mom. I’m God’s princess and I love him so much. He’s my heavenly father. He’s the King of the whole world.

Abortion is never a necessary evil.
