"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

This is so much more important than our 'feelings'... what the pope wears... all the rants and raves we distract ourselves with...

I read the following headlines on Drudge, but couldn't go to the article:
Media ignores abortionist's murder trial...

'It didn't have eyes or a mouth but it was like screeching, making this noise'...
Hell. On. Earth.

"But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even his life to love us. So the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love - that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts. By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems. And by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion. " - Blessed M. Teresa

If WWIII breaks out tomorrow, don't ask why. 


  1. We must be on the same wave length as I just posted something about how the MSM seems to be ignoring this story. I read the account of the infant that "screeched" after I returned from Mass this morning and it made me so sick I couldn't eat. I do believe, however, the tide is turning. I love the group Feminists for Life because they demonstrate that it's not just Catholics or Evangelicals who care about abortion. They have some of THE best arguments against abortion in all instances that I've ever read and they have been in existence since the 1970's.

    Peace begins in the womb. And Blessed Mother Teresa was right.

  2. When I read the headline I actually choked - choked back tears, I geuss.

    I have to check out feminists for life - 2nd time I heard about them. Thanks.

  3. I believe the trial is underway right now. Haven't heard a peep from the local news. I have heard, however, every single verdict on each of the Philadelphia accused priests.

    1. oh I must clarify--I just found out from Joyce that one of the local stations is doing a piece tonight.

      Still -- the priests are ALL OVER the local news, radio and TV. Gosnell, no.
