What are your thoughts about Abortion?

PELOSI ABOUT TO FACE STIFF PUNISHMENT FROM THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE AUTHORITY!

DANIELLE MARIE SEPTEMBER 8, 2021 

This is a test

Nancy Pelosi and the rest of her Democrat buddies that claim to be “good Catholics” and then fight for abortion just sicken anyone who takes the faith seriously. How could any church leader condone any of these people at all? How can they allow them to sit in the pews and receive the eucharist when they have blood on their hands?

Now, just for clarification, I am not Catholic and would fall more into the non-denominational arena, but that doesn’t mean I don’t understand the Catholic faith. Every time I have seen these Democrats defend abortion and then state that God would be pleased or anything in that sort of realm it makes my stomach turn and I have often wondered why aren’t any Catholic leaders speaking out?

Literally, the Catholic church is against birth control and now they are all right with murdering
innocent babies?

Maybe it had something to do with not wanting to cause more drama but it clearly states in the bible that Christ didn’t come to this fallen world to get along.
Matthew 10:34 says, “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.”

Seems pretty clear to me, right? Sure does and it appears that one Catholic Archbishop agrees and has gone as far as to say that Pelosi is in danger of being excommunicated from the church.

(Editor’s Note: IF she hasn’t done that already to herself which is a great posibility).

Over the weekend, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, who just so happens to be the archbishop of Pelosi’s home diocese in San Francisco, California, wrote an essay in the Washington Post, announcing that ex-communication is a potential action to take against self-proclaimed Catholic Democrat leaders who support abortion.

(Editor’s note again: If you are a Democrat or of another political affiliation knew that your vote for Joe Biden, a Catholic for president would be a vote for abortion, then it should be very disturbing to you.)

In his piece, Cordileone urged Catholic politicians to oppose abortion, saying that “[y]ou cannot be a good Catholic and support expanding a government-approved right to kill innocent human beings.”

“This summer, we provoked an uproar by discussing whether public officials who support abortion should receive the sacrament of the Eucharist,” Cordileone wrote. “We were accused of inappropriately injecting religion into politics, of butting in where we didn’t belong.”

“I see matters differently,” the archbishop added. “When considering what duties Catholic bishops have with respect to prominent laymen in public life who openly oppose church teachings on abortion, I look to this country’s last great human rights movement — still within my living memory — for inspiration on how we should respond.”

The archbishop then encouraged other church leaders to use the threat of ex-communication to force politicians to make good decisions. He compared abortion to racism during the Civil Rights movement.

“The example of New Orleans Archbishop Joseph Rummel, who courageously confronted the evils of racism, is one that I especially admire,” the archbishop said. “Rummel did not ‘stay in his lane.’ Unlike several other bishops throughout this country’s history, he did not prioritize keeping parishioners and the public happy above advancing racial justice. Instead, he began a long, patient campaign of moral suasion to change the opinions of pro-segregation White Catholics.”

The Daily Wire summarizes:
Rummel did not just wage a patient campaign, he pressed hard on individuals he knew who supported policies of segregation, “closed a church for refusing to accept a black priest,” desegregated New Orleans Catholic schools, and when confronted about his decision, “patiently sent letters urging a conversion of heart.” When that failed, he threatened ex-communication. In three separate cases, he followed through. Two of those individuals, Cordileone noted, eventually repented.

Rummel, the archbishop noted, “recognized that prominent, high-profile public advocacy for racism was scandalous: It violated core Catholic teachings and basic principles of justice, and also led others to sin.”

Abortion, he said, is now “the most pressing human rights challenge of our time. Can we pastors speak softly when the blood of 60 million innocent American children cries out for justice?”

Cordileone suggested, in his piece, that those who support abortion head off scandal and refrain from participating in Holy Communion so as not to cause scandal — and so as not to spread scandal to priests and other faithful. The matter, he added, is the preservation of that person’s soul: “To publicly affirm the Catholic faith while at the same time publicly rejecting one of its most fundamental teachings is simply dishonest.”

If politicians continue to support abortion, Cordlieone said that Catholic leaders need to take action.

“If their participation in the evil of abortion is not addressed forthrightly by their pastors, this can lead Catholics (and others) to assume that the moral teaching of the Catholic Church on the inviolate sanctity of human life is not seriously held,” Cordileone finished. “The constant teaching of the Catholic Church from her very beginning, the repeated exhortations of every Pope in recent times up to and including Pope Francis, the frequent statements by the bishops of the United States, all make it clear what the teaching of the Catholic Church is in regard to abortion.”

What are your thoughts?

American Histories curriculum: Let the Facts be told…

Our American History curriculum: Catholic influences were discredited or eradicated.

WHY: [Editor’s note] Our educators didn’t want to enhance Catholic thought or philosophy.

The books used in the American History curriculum, for example, completely passed over, discredited, or eradicated any mention of Catholic influences in the United States. Catholic explorers (and Missionaries), if named at all, had their names secularized (for example, Jesuit Father Jacques Marquette who explored the upper Mississippi River was simply “Marquette” and the picture depicting him was airbrushed to have him dressed in buckskins [a la Davy Crocket] in lieu of his Jesuit habit). No mention at all of the efforts of Blessed Junipero Serra,OFM, [Serra a Franciscan Priest] in California or other Catholic Missionaries or even Spanish secular efforts in the American Southwest. 

American History only began in 1620 with the Pilgrims setting foot on Plymouth Rock to escape Religious (Anglican) persecution in England and later Catholic persecution in Holland (any time the word “Catholic” showed up it was always in negative terms).  Earlier Spanish explorations by DeSoto, Ponce de Leon, and other Conquistadors were mentioned only because their names were so familiar in Florida and the Caribbean, but again the concurrent Catholic missionary efforts were depicted in negative terms vis a vis the Native Populations.  

Christopher Columbus was vilified for bringing Catholic missionaries to these shores.

Any mention of Catholic social principles in the Social Studies courses? – ZIP. Nothing

ST. THOMAS MORE, OFS

Saint Thomas More
(February 7, 1478 – July 6, 1535)
Saint Thomas More’s Story

Pope John Paul II named him patron of political leaders. The supreme diplomat and counselor, he did not compromise his own moral values in order to please the king, knowing that true allegiance to authority is not blind acceptance of everything that authority wants. Pray to St. Thomas More that President Biden and the Democrat Party will influence the end of abortion: the killing of babies in the womb.
Lord, pray for our country to end its ungodly ways! 
His belief that no lay ruler has jurisdiction over the Church of Christ cost Thomas More his life.
Beheaded on Tower Hill, London, on July 6, 1535, More steadfastly refused to approve King Henry VIII’s divorce and remarriage and establishment of the Church of England.

Described as “a man for all seasons,” More was a literary scholar, eminent lawyer, gentleman, father of four children,[a Secular Franciscan] and chancellor of England. Four hundred years later in 1935, Thomas More was canonized a saint of God. Few saints are more relevant to our time. In the year 2000, in fact, Pope John Paul II named him patron of political leaders.An intensely spiritual man, he would not support the king’s divorce from Catherine of Aragon in order to marry Anne Boleyn. Nor would he acknowledge Henry as supreme head of the Church in England, breaking with Rome, and denying the pope as head.

Editor’s Note as stated: St. Thomas More, OFS was a “Franciscan Secular”.

More was committed to the Tower of London to await trial for treason: not swearing to the Act of Succession and the Oath of Supremacy. Upon conviction, More declared he had all the councils of Christendom and not just the council of one realm to support him in the decision of his conscience.

Reflection
Four hundred years later in 1935, Thomas More was canonized a saint of God. Few saints are more relevant to our time. In the year 2000, in fact, Pope John Paul II named him patron of political leaders. The supreme diplomat and counselor, he did not compromise his own moral values in order to please the king, knowing that true allegiance to authority is not blind acceptance of everything that authority wants.

King Henry himself realized this and tried desperately to win his chancellor to his side because he knew More was a man whose approval counted, a man whose personal integrity no one questioned. But when Thomas More resigned as chancellor, unable to approve the two matters that meant most to Henry, the king had to get rid of him.

A SECULAR FRANCISCAN’S NEWS AND RESEARCH CENTER

 

There is a wisdom among the spiritually mature, [it is] not a wisdom of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are men headed for destruction.
What we utter is God’s wisdom, a mysterious, a hidden wisdom.1 Corinthians 2:7-10a

Ask for this Wisdom to guide you through this Valley of Joy and Tears.

See what love the Father has bestowed on us in letting us be called children of God! Yet that is what we are. Dearly beloved, we are God’s children now; what we shall later be has not yet come to light. We know that when it comes to light we shall be like him for we shall see him as he is.

Since Roe vs Wade, there are or have been some political leaders who believe in the concerning the life of a child in the womb is this: if you wish, the baby in the womb can be terminated.

Needless to say, killing a baby in the womb is an act against God.

The body and soul which God has created is sacred. It is not God’s wish to kill what He has created.

Let Us Pray

  • That the Leaders of the Democratic Party discontinue the godless act of Abortion.
  • That our voters support the “right to Life” of all citizens, born and unborn.
  • For our country and its leaders that believed: “All men are created equal.”
  • That the education of our children return to its God-fearing ways.
  • That there will be an end to pagan rituals that take-over the education of our children.

PELOSI ABOUT TO FACE STIFF PUNISHMENT FROM THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE AUTHORITY!

Our Lady of Good Success

Prophecies of Our Lady of Good Success About Our Times April 19, 2000 TFP.org 

     “At the end of the nineteenth century and throughout
a great part of the twentieth, many heresies will be propagated…”  

During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Our Lady of Good Success appeared in Quito, Ecuador to a Spanish nun whose little-known but extraordinary life has a direct connection with our days, [today November 2019].

The Pope’s “infallibility will be declared a dogma of Faith by the same Pope chosen to proclaim the dogma of the mystery of my Immaculate Conception. He will be persecuted and imprisoned in the Vatican through the usurpation of the Pontifical States and through the malice, envy, and avarice of an earthly monarch.”

“Unbridled passions will give way to a total corruption of customs because Satan will reign through the Masonic sects, targeting the children in particular to insure general corruption.

“Unhappy, the children of those times! Seldom will they receive the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation. As for the sacrament of Penance, they will confess only while attending Catholic schools, which the devil will do his utmost to destroy by means of persons in authority.

“The same will occur with Holy Communion. Oh, how it hurts me to tell you that there will be many and enormous public and hidden sacrileges!

“In those times, the sacrament of Extreme Unction will be largely ignored.… Many will die without receiving it, being thereby deprived of innumerable graces, consolation, and strength in the great leap from time to eternity.

“The sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with the Church, will be thoroughly attacked and profaned. Masonry, then reigning, will implement iniquitous laws aimed at extinguishing this sacrament. They will make it easy for all to live in sin, thus multiplying the birth of illegitimate children without the Church’s blessing….

“Secular education will contribute to a scarcity of priestly and religious vocations.”

“The holy sacrament of Holy Orders will be ridiculed, oppressed, and despised, for in this both the Church and God Himself are oppressed and reviled, since He is represented by His priests.“The devil will work to persecute the ministers of the Lord in every way, working with baneful cunning to destroy the spirit of their vocation and corrupting many. Those who will thus scandalize the Christian flock will bring upon all priests the hatred of bad Christians and the enemies of the One, Holy, Roman Catholic, and Apostolic Church. This apparent triumph of Satan will cause enormous suffering to the good pastors of the Church…and to the Supreme Pastor and Vicar of Christ on earth who, a prisoner in the Vatican, will shed secret and bitter tears in the presence of God Our Lord, asking for light, sanctity, and perfection for all the clergy of the world, to whom he is King and Father.”

“Unhappy times will come wherein those who should fearlessly defend the rights of the Church will instead, blinded despite the light, give their hand to the Church’s enemies and do their bidding. But when [evil] seems triumphant and when authority abuses its power, committing all manner of injustice and oppressing the weak, their ruin shall be near. They will fall and crash to the ground.

“At the end of the nineteenth century and throughout a great part of the twentieth, many heresies will be propagated in these lands.…

“The small number of souls who will secretly safeguard the treasure of Faith and virtues will suffer a cruel, unspeakable, and long martyrdom. Many will descend to their graves through the violence of suffering and will be counted among the martyrs who sacrificed themselves for the country and the Church.

“To be delivered from the slavery of these heresies, those whom the merciful love of my Son has destined for this restoration will need great will-power, perseverance, courage, and confidence in God. To try the faith and trust of these just ones, there will be times when all will seem lost and paralyzed. It will then be the happy beginning of the complete restoration….

“In those times the atmosphere will be saturated with the spirit of impurity which, like a filthy sea, will engulf the streets and public places with incredible license.… Innocence will scarcely be found in children, or modesty in women.

“He who should speak seasonably will remain silent. [Editor’s note: During this time, some important hierarchy did not meet the needs and speak for the Church.] 

“There shall be scarcely any virgin souls in the world. The delicate flower of virginity will seek refuge in the cloisters.…Without virginity, fire from heaven will be needed to purify these lands.

“Sects, having permeated all social classes, will find ways of introducing themselves into the very heart of homes to corrupt the innocence of children. The children’s hearts will be dainty morsels to regale the devil.…

“Religious communities will remain to sustain the Church and work with courage for the salvation of souls.… The secular clergy will fall far short of what is expected of them because they will not pursue their sacred duty. Losing the divine compass, they will stray from the way of priestly ministry mapped out for them by God and will become devoted to money, seeking it too earnestly.

“Then will the Church, joyful and triumphant like a young girl, reawaken and be comfortably cradled in the arms of my most dear and elect son of those times. If he lends an ear to the inspirations of grace–one of which will be the reading of these great mercies that my Son and I have had toward you–we shall fill him with graces and very special gifts and will make him great on earth and much greater in Heaven. There we have reserved a precious seat for him because, heedless of men, he will have fought for truth and ceaselessly defended the rights of the Church, deserving to be called ‘martyr.’”

“Pray constantly, implore tirelessly, and weep bitter tears in the seclusion of your heart, beseeching the Eucharistic Heart of my most holy Son to take pity on His ministers and to end as soon as possible these unhappy times by sending to His Church the Prelate who shall restore the spirit of her priests.”
