Prolife Chain 2016

April 25, 2016

To mark the passing of the 1967 Abortion Act, over 100 people, including our very own Sr. Andrea came together to form a human chain in silent witness on Lothian Road, Edinburgh last Saturday.  Old, young and the very young made the journey to witness to life.  There were lollies, balloons and a wee bit of sun intermittently to help us on our way.  Next year marks the 50th year since abortion was made legal in Britain and the witness to the lives lost grows steadily…

The Feast of the Annunciation and the Prolife Message

April 8, 2016

A detail from Fra Angelico's Madonna of Humility (1433–1435)

At Mass in our church today the Feast of the Annunciation was celebrated. Its official date is March 25 but because of the date of Easter this year it has been delayed. In the Liturgical Year the Church celebrates many significant feasts of Our Lady; if there is a hierarchy of these memorable occasions that of the Immaculate Conception will be first, because it is this unique privilege that points towards every other event of Our Lady’s life on earth and her approved apparitions during the Church’s subsequent history.

Nonetheless, the subject-matter of the Annunciation has inspired more artists because of the very human drama of the event described in the Gospels: the angel Gabriel’s momentous communication, followed by Our Lady’s life-changing “Fiat”. My own favourite painting is Fra Angelico’s, because it so beautifully conveys Our Lady’s humility. It reminds one that one of the most attractive features of Catholicism is the person of Our Lady herself and the role she has played in salvation history. Although our love for her is incomprehensible to those outside the Faith, she fulfils our human longing for a mother infinitely compassionate and loving – and especially for a mother who will unceasingly intercede for us with her Son.

This particular feast in honour of Our Lady is also significant because it is intrinsically bound up with the pro-life movement. If Jesus became a human being at the Annunciation of his conception, so does every baby in the womb. Thus to be a Catholic is to be pro-life. Other Churches may quibble about a time when a baby is “less” than human and a time when it becomes “more” human; the Feast of the Annunciation tells it like it is

Prayers Please

April 8, 2016

The other day we asked for prayers for a very ill unborn baby. Thank you to all who have been praying. Could we ask that you keep this baby and his mum, who has gone into very difficult labour, in your prayers. The doctors say that the wee one won’t survive and we indeed need a miracle.

WYD Concert

April 8, 2016

This July, Sr Andrea will be one of the leaders of a group of pilgrims who are heading to World Youth Day in Krakow – many of whom are volunteers for the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative.

In order to make this pilgrimage a reality – the group need to raise funds for travel and accommodation costs.

Please support this event by coming along to the concert they have organised. There will be some great entertainment through a mix of musical genres and it’s BYOB too – why not make a wee night of it.
