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

DeLay - "an act of barbarism"

FOXNews.com - Politics - Judge: Schiavo's Feeding Tube Can Be Removed:


"An 'Act of Barbarism'
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (search), R-Texas, House Whip Roy Blunt (search), R-Mo., and other lawmakers on Friday held a press conference urging the court to modify its ruling so the Schiavos and others could appear before the committee.

Saying removal of the tube would be 'an act of barbarism' that must be prevented, DeLay blasted Sens. Barbara Boxer (search), D-Calif., Ron Wyden (search), D-Ore., and Carl Levin (search), D-Mich., who he said blocked Senate passage of the Protection of Incapacitated Persons Act (search) of 2005, a measure inspired by the Schiavo case.

'Those senators responsible for blocking our bill ... have put Miss Schiavo's life at risk,' DeLay said. 'We care about saving Terri Schiavo's life. The House bill will do that.'

He also said Schiavo was very much alive. 'She's not just barely alive, she's not being kept alive, she is alive as you and I, and as such, we have a moral obligation to protect and defend her from the fate premeditated by the Florida courts,' DeLay said. 'This is not over � we are still working.'"
