"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.

Action Alert: Save the Baby Rabbits!

How can you let something this cute die?

Yesterday I posted a story about a nurse's testimony on how babies born alive after an abortion procedure are left on the counter, in a stainless steel pan, crying themselves to death.

I will never ever disparage another pro-life activist for being a single issue voter ever again.  These stories are so inhumane it is difficult to believe that any country or government could approve of such atrocities committed in the name of 'women's health'.  It is a crime against humanity.  It is evil.

Today I read another story about a woman who could feel her twins in her womb, fighting for their lives, during an abortion. She had too many children and didn't want more - so she had them killed.  It's insanity - such hardness of heart - I can't even express the anguish I feel reading these stories.

So often, on local news, - for the feel-good news segments, they show people bringing in hurt animals to be rehabilitated, often orphaned baby rabbits, and fawns which people believe to be an abandoned baby deer, and even fledgling backyard birds - to be nursed and saved and returned to their habitat when old enough.  Fawns and baby rabbits and fledglings are really meant to be left where they are, because somewhere mommy rabbit is hiding - and she'll show up at feeding time to care for her babies.  Same with deer and birds.  Unlike us, even animals take care of their own.  Yet we, who would rescue a cute little bunny, allow a baby to die, naked, wounded, cold, alone in stainless steel pan.

More recently, in the news covering survival stories of the floods and disasters, news anchors said that it was the cry of babies that led rescuers into the gravest dangers to rescue those who were trapped - one woman said she wouldn't let go of a baby in the rushing waters.  Though she found some place to cling to, it was dark, and chances she would be found were slim.  Then she prayed - and suddenly the baby cried - and only then were rescuers able to locate them.  A baby's cry saved the woman and the foundling baby.

In Aleppo, after recent bombings, rescuers found a baby boy in the rubble - crying - and he was saved.  Yet we kill our own when we don't want anymore kids - and if somehow they survive our attempts to kill them - we ignore their 'whining' and let them die.

If you have any heart at all, if you want peace, if you want love, rescue these children, these babies.

Make the killing stop.

This is why I love to hear babies cry at Mass - they remind me of those whose cries are ignored, or not heard, and left to die - and it rends my heart.  I thank God for the babies who cry, I thank God for the kids who are unsettled.  They remind me to pray for them, as well as for those babies and little kids who suffer daily, and to ardently pray the unborn and newborn and babies and little kids, will no longer suffer from our cold indifference and lack of love.

Be grateful for children, welcome them, and love them.

Remember this ... keep it in mind: "Every day and every hour, every minute, walk round yourself and watch yourself, and see that your image is a seemly one. You pass by a little child, you pass by, spiteful, with ugly words, with wrathful heart; you may not have noticed the child, but he has seen you, and your image, unseemly and ignoble, may remain in his defenseless heart. You don't know it, but you may have sown an evil seed in him and it may grow, and all because you were not careful before the child, because you did not foster in yourself a careful, actively benevolent love." -  Fr. Zosima, Brothers Karamazov

Love your children.  Save them.  Save the children.

"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?" - St. Teresa of Calcutta


  1. http://www.lifenews.com/2016/09/23/poland-poised-to-approve-new-law-banning-all-abortions-and-protecting-unborn-children/

    I wonder what we as Americans would be like with something like this law being passed in Poland. Would we be stronger? More reliable? More convicted in our faith and values?

    1. "Love your children. Save them. Save the children"

      Let us too, love those precious children of the martyr city of Aleppo, Syria. Let us pray for all who do their best to assist the victims of this ugly war. The bombings, the killings the slaughter of innocents ...

      Aleppo’s inferno and children’s prayers


      I many times wonder, who is more fortunate in Aleppo, the dead or those who continue to live amid such chaos?

  2. Oh Terry - you have touched me with this.

    Yes, I saw what the nurse wrote about what happens to aborted babies. That was one of the most horrifying things I have ever read.

    There is always hope, and as Christians we should hold onto that.

    I fully believe the devil rejoices every time anyone even considers abortion.

    God bless and keep you - pax et bonum.

  3. You've given me a whole new way to see crying babies at Mass.

    So much more I want to say about wanted vs. "unwanted" babies, saving animals vs. people, etc. but I will leave it for now.
