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

COME TO FLORIDA says Brothers of Peace

Brother Anthony just called me, he wants me to spread the word, the situation down in Florida is becoming desperate, they are running out of options. The Franciscan Brothers of Peace and BlogsforTerri.org are calling everyone who can possibly come to Flordia to please COME as soon as possible, buses, carpools, plane whatever.

He reports that there are few pro-life protesters there currently, many of them from outside of Florida, and there are almost as many pro-death protesters as there are pro-lifers. Br. says that Florida seems to have become numb to Terri, that there are very few locals who are there. THOSE OF YOU IN FLORIDA -- PLEASE GO!!

Logistically, it may be challanging -- it is spring break, and hotels are scarce. Br. suggests calling the churches in the area and asking for housing, another option is to simply go to the hospice, and there are local people who are at the site who may be able to host you.

I'm sorry, and Br. is sorry, that we don't have any better information for you, or resources to call, but please, particularly those of you in the SE United States, if you can get to the hospice, you will be taken care of, God will provide!

Please, go to Florida, or if you are not able to go to Florida, please talk to your pastors, plan a rally, plan a prayer service. Plan something that will show our outrage over this judicial murder!

If you go, the brothers ask that you bring PEACEFUL signs of pro-life messages, and come peacefully. We need to make a good impression on Congress, and encourage them to keep fighting for Terri's life.
