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

URGENT -- News from Florida

I just got off the phone with Br. Anthony of the Franciscan Brothers of Peace -- he brings word that the ONLY option that they can foresee as being able to save Terri from her death sentence tomorrow is to contact the Florida DCF now and urge them to take Terri into protective custody immediately.

This is in spite of the foreseeable success of the federal and state legislation that is currently being rushed through Congress -- because any legislation that passes, according to Br. Anthony, will not be able to be used in Terri's case until it has gone through a "judicial review." And guess which judge will be responsible for this judicial review? Of course, Judge Greer, the judge who has been solely responsible for the denial of every single appeal for Terri's life and dignity as a living human being.

Therefore, legislation alone will not save Terri, though it is good that it looks like the bills will be made into law by Congress and signed by the Bush brothers if they pass.

It is urgent that you contact the Florida DCF immediately, even if you have called before, to implore them to intervene in Terri's behalf.

Call them at 850-488-4855.
