Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

"You've killed off my generation, my generation will kill yours"

Some words of warning from a 16-year-old pro-lifer... I've often thought the same thing myself, as I see all these selfish single adults (or childless couples) running around and living it up, leaving their parents and grandparents to rot alone... and I think, "You know, parents and grandparents, if you teach your kids to only value human life when it's worth something to you, then why are you surprised when they throw you away once they've used you up?"

It is time for the surviving members of my generation to reject the ideology of our parent's generation, to reject the notions that can only lead to eugenics and mass genocide (of the young, of the old, of the disabled, of the "useless."). We can begin very simply - one prayer at a time.

Terri Schiavo's latest reprive is running out once more, with the emergency stay expiring at Friday, 5pm Eastern time.

Stop. Right now, just stop whatever you're doing. Bow your head, and pray for the Holy Spirit to come and convert the hearts of the world. Pray for Terri. Pray for her husband. Pray for the life of an unborn child who is in danger of abortion. Pray for the life of a mother who is in danger of choosing abortion. Pray for a conversion of our society into a culture of life, not a culture of death. Pray for our Holy Father, who has taken one more step up the hill towards his personal Calvary.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known, that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen
