“God wishes to test you like gold in the furnace. The dross is consumed by the fire, but the pure gold remains and its value increases. It is in this manner that God acts with his good servant, who puts his hope in him and remains unshaken in times of distress. God raises him up and, in return for the things he has left because of love for God, he repays him a hundredfold in this life and with eternal life hereafter.”  – Saint Jerome Emiliani (1481-1537)

Ok, here’s what I see on this “Freedom of Choice of Act” or “FOCA.”

1. The bill would create a right to abortions the government could not limit.

2. Bring about a national policy far worse that the US Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade.

3. For the first time abortions would become an entitlement the government must fund and promote.

FOCA strives to:

Eliminate all regulations from clinics in terms of safety and such.

To force all American taxpayers to fund baby killing.

Force every state to allow partial- birth baby killing.

Oppress the rights – conscience rights – of doctors, nurses and hospitals that are opposed to baby killing.

Strip parental rights regarding minor femaile child abortion decision.

FOCA is without a doubt the most radical abortion legislation ever considered in the United States. Baby Killing Supporters have been trying to pass this FOCA BS since 1989 and now we have a congress more disposed than any in recent years to pass the bill

My notes on Father Mark Lawlor’s “Pastor’s Reflection” from 18 Jan 2009:

The English word “Catholic” is originally from the Greek word Katholikos, which means universal or whole. The word “church” is from the Latin word Ecclesia, which in scripture refers to the gathered assembly of God.

The Catholic Church, therefore, refers to the Universal People of God. Consider the following three states of the church:

* Church Triumphant – the Saints in Heaven

* Church Suffering – – the souls in purgatory

* Church Militant – the faithful on earth

Somebody to save me, rescue me …

“Jesus does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, or even at their difficulty, as at the love with which we do them.” – St. Therese of Lisieux

I like this one:

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Today’s reflection comes from St. Francis of Assisi , he tells us to: “Sanctify yourself and you will sanctify society.” Something to think about and it brings to (my) mind a quote from St. Therese of  The Child Jesus who said and prayed, “Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning what you want me to be… and becoming that person.”

  • Anointing of the Sick Monday, 5 January 2009
    Anointing of the Sick is that sacrament which is administered to strengthen Christians who are in danger of death from sickness or old age.

  • Trinity Thursday, 30 October 2008
    It is not easy to describe the Trinity, let alone understand this great mystery of the Catholic Faith. Perhaps the most important thing we can say about the Trinity is that the one and only God is truly a dynamic and self-sufficient community of love, and is therefore the source, model and goal of all other love. Thus does God reveal Himself as Father, Son a […]
  • Abortion Friday, 25 July 2008
    Abortion is the greatest single scourge of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, claiming far more innocent lives than any other threat, including war, poverty, starvation and natural disasters. This grave moral evil is also the centerpiece of the contemporary culture wars which divide most Western nations, particularly the United States, whic […]
  • Rosary Tuesday, 22 July 2008

Strongly associated with the Blessed Virgin Mary, and relying on the power of her intercession with her Divine Son, the Rosary makes use of a simple str […]
  • Apologetics Thursday, 24 January 2008
    As soon as one understands that apologetics comes from the Greek word for defense (apologetikos), the term becomes very easy to understand. Apologetics is a branch of study which aims to explain and justify Christian doctrine, demonstrating its reasonableness in the face of objections by those who do not accept it. Doing apologetics means defending the faith […]
  • Modernism Thursday, 17 January 2008
    As the name implies, Modernism is an ideology by which religious truths, and especially Catholic teachings, are derived and interpreted in accordance with personal religious experience, under the influence of the spirit of the current age. First emerging in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Modernism was condemned by Pope St. Pius X in 1907. It resurfa […]
