SORT BY Relevancy
One day, a female Soldier comes to my office and wanted to talk to me.
I took her to an exam room where she could talk in privacy.
She took a few moments until, finally, she wanted to talk to me about an abortion she had recently committed.
She was not married; she was having difficulty coping with what she done.
I asked her if she was Catholic and she replied “no”, that she was a member of the Assemblies of God. She told me that she had not been practicing her faith for some time.
I encouraged her to make an appointment with her Pastor, or find her unit’s Chaplain if she needed to speak with a Professional.
I wanted to encourage her to get the kind of help she needed from her spiritual tradition.
That was not the time to discuss religion except that I told her I was Catholic.
I told her that as a representative of Christ, I forgive her for what she did. I think she needed to hear that.
We spoke for a short time but her issue and concern stuck with me for a good while.
I have always been pro-life, politically; I have always supported pro-life Candidates for all elections.
Since that time, I have felt a compassion for those who have had abortions who live with the knowledge they killed their children.
Sister Celeste Mentag speaks about abortion and the death culture we live in and how much the church is participating and joining the argument for pro-choice. God values life and the church needs to educate itself and the world what is our BIBLICAL stance against abortiion.
What a great day this has been as the Diocese of Austin began with a prayer vigil at 7>A.M. this morning to pray the Rosary at thge Planned Parenthood abortion facility. Then at 9:15 the Joyful Mysteries were led by the high school students as we prayed the Rosary of Life accompanied by the Dominican Sisters of Mary for organizing the Living Rosary.
Thenthe celebration of Mass with Most Rev. Joe Vasquez, Bishop of Austin who was the Celebrant. Most Rev. Michael Mulvey, Bishop of Corpus Christi, and Most Rev. Daniel Garcia, Auxilary Bishop-Elect of Austin. There were several Priests of the Diocese of Austin and the Diocese of Corpus Christi as Concelebrants.
This was held at the St. Vincent de Paul Parish, Austin January 24, 2015. There were several thousand marchers who made this day a great success. In Texas, a lot of great progress has been made in defending life. Many of abortion clinics have closed their door.
Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
* Out of the 50 states, Louisiana is the most pro-life and Washington is the most pro-abortion.
* America is now funding abortions in India.
* George Tiller’s associate is denied a medical license.
How many times have we heard leftist liberals say that pro-life people [particularly Conservative ones] are hypocrites because they defend the right of the unborn while supporting the death penalty for murderers? They say that it's hypocritical to affirm the sanctity of life while favoring the death penalty for violent criminals. Well, I'm one of those guys who happens to be both. And I'll give a coherant and eloquent defense of that position. First of all, it's crucial to understand that the unborn are helpless babies who did no wrong. But when someone murders or commits a violent crime, then the guilty person loses his/her the right to live. As a society, we punish people who do evil, not innocent people who are helpless. And in actuality, being both pro-life and pro-death penalty is consistant with that position. It's still consistant with the basic moral position of punishing the bad guys and stopping them from doing any more evil while protecting innocent life. So yes, I'll show why I'm pro-innocent life. I'm pro- save any helpless life. Meaning I DON'T support aborting babies, especially if they're disabled. I consider the fact that more than 90% of babies being aborted for having down syndrome ot be an ableist Holocaust. And it's our duty as a society to help and care for the weak and disabled, not to kill people on the morally repugnant grounds of their existence being a burden. In fact, I'll show that in this issue, pro-choice leftist liberals who oppose the death penalty, are the REAL hypocrites. They want to protect the lives of violent criminals while they're ok with the systematic genocide of millions of babies in the womb in the name of the woman's right to "choose." In addition, they want to protect the lives of rapists while championing the killing of babies conceived in rape in the name of caring for the rape victim, which is hypocritical to the core.
A Lady Priest? A Lady Bishop?!!
Of course! Why not?
Join Kristina Rake, M.A. (theology and scripture) for this detailed and riveting answer to the Roman Catholic Church's objections against female ordination to Holy Orders. Kristina will explore the 4 reasons why the Roman Church claims it can never ordain women, while examining the historical, theological, biblical, spiritual, and psychological reasons why that position is untenable and why a female priesthood is not just possible, it's valid and necessary.
We've turned the calendar to October and that's means some great sports action is in full swing. NFL and college football season are getting underway, baseball's playoffs have begun and the NBA and NHL seasons are getting into training camps. But sports isn't just something fun to play in the yard or watch on TV. The lessons we learn from sports can be applied to our faith lives as well. On the next Catholic Cast, Amber, Brent and John tell you how you can apply the lessons of sport to the Christian life and how our scriptures can help us in that journey. Join us Sunday at 7pmET, 6pmCT on the Catholic Cast only on BlogTalkRadio.

This episode is dedicated to all the victims of Roman Catholic abuse, whose pain was too much for them and they committed suicide.
I wrote a letter to the editor in response to Pope Francis asking priest abuse victims to forgive him and the church for our abuses. This is a part of that response:
"How can Paul Anthony Carson, whom upon seeing the priest whom raped him walking down the street and then going home and hanging himself, being found by his parents, forgive him?
How can Emma Foster, whom was raped by Father Kevin O'Donnell, while at a primary school whom committed suicide because of it, forgive him?
How can Daniel Neill, whom committed suicide because of his rapist priest, Joseph Gallagher, forgive him?
How can the 30 boys raped at the St Alipius primary school, whom committed suicide forgive him for their rapes?
There are about a thousand or more victims of these evil crimes who committed suicide. Tonight, we honor their memory and call to task the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis, all of the Cardinals, Bishops and Archbishops, priests, nuns and parishioners, who have ignored this evil and to correct it immediately.
These brothers and sisters of ours...deserve no less.
