HUMAN RIGHTS & ABUSES

His girlfriend refused to abort their baby. So he killed his daughter by hurling her off a cliff instead.
(U.S.A.) Ben Johnson, Life Site News, May 13, 2015
  • "Raised in a culture of sexual excess, Brown wanted to be able to satisfy his lust without emotional or financial consequences....Abortion was one way to that end; murder nearly five years later was another."
  • "The availability of abortion degrades life at every stage, inside or outside the womb, and puts us on the slippery slope to infanticide."
  • "Abortion is just child murder at another date -- and vice-versa."

Pro-abortion protester endorses 'post natal abortions' at Canadian March For Life
(Canada) Carole Novielli, Life Site News, May 18, 2015
  • He says he is okay with killing a newborn baby, but that he is not advocating murder. There is some serious cognitive dissonance there! And some very shallow thinking. Please pray for him and others like him.

NOTE: This news piece is something even we outside the U.S. would be interested in inasmuch as it covers logical fallacies and deceptive statements made by those promoting so-called same-sex "marriage".

"Carry you on my soul after. What a beautiful way of putting it. In broken English, Jorge had found the perfect way of encapsulating our responsibility to one another.

Books Excluded From The Bible By The Early Church Fathers





Jimmy Akin answers What books did the Church Fathers exclude from the Bible and why?

TRANSCRIPT

There have been a lot of discussions in recent years about books that did not make it into the Bible. You very frequently find these in a kind of Christian conspiracy literature---things like The Da Vinci Code, and so forth. There have been lots of reports that the Church "suppressed" certain books and wouldn't include them in Scripture for nefarious reasons.

Divine Mercy Novena: Day 9 (Easter Saturday)

Divine Mercy image
For the souls who have become lukewarm

"Today bring to Me the souls who have become lukewarm, and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. These souls wound My Heart most painfully. My soul suffered the most dreadful loathing in the Garden of Olives because of lukewarm souls. They were the reason I cried out: 'Father, take this cup away from Me, if it be Your will.' For them, the last hope of salvation is to run to My mercy."

THE PRAYER:

Most compassionate Jesus, You are Compassion Itself. I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart. In this fire of Your pure love, let these tepid souls who, like corpses, filled You with such deep loathing, be once again set aflame. O Most Compassionate Jesus, exercise the omnipotence of Your mercy and draw them into the very ardor of Your love, and bestow upon them the gift of holy love, for nothing is beyond Your power.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm souls who are nonetheless enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Father of Mercy, I beg You by the bitter Passion of Your Son and by His three-hour agony on the Cross: let them, too, glorify the abyss of Your mercy. Amen.

Divine Mercy Novena: Day 8 (Easter Friday)

Divine Mercy image
For the souls who are detained in Purgatory

"Today bring to Me the souls who are in the prison of purgatory, and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. Let the torrents of My Blood cool down their scorching flames. All these souls are greatly loved by Me. They are making retribution to My justice. It is in your power to bring them relief. Draw all the indulgences from the treasury of My Church and offer them on their behalf. Oh, if you only knew the torments they suffer, you would continually offer for them the alms of the spirit and pay off their debt to My justice."

Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said that You desire mercy; so I bring into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls in Purgatory, souls who are very dear to You, and yet, who must make retribution to Your justice. May the streams of Blood and Water which gushed forth from Your Heart put out the flames of Purgatory, that there, too, the power of Your mercy may be celebrated.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls suffering in Purgatory, who are enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. I beg You, by the sorrowful Passion of Jesus Your Son, and by all the bitterness with which His most sacred Soul was flooded: manifest Your mercy to the souls who are under Your just scrutiny. Look upon them in no other way but only through the Wounds of Jesus, Your dearly beloved Son; for we firmly believe that there is no limit to Your goodness and compassion. Amen.
