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

Will Goodman - Adoration going on outside the hospice!

A friend of mine, Will Goodman, is currently down in Florida witnessing to life outside Terri's hospice. He just was talking to Drew Mariani on Relevant Radio tonight, and reported that there was, at that time, Eucharistic Adoration going on outside of Terri's hospice!! Three priests earlier celebrated a Mass outside the hospice, and ended Mass with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.

Wow. Powerful stuff, but I've gotta wonder... word on the street has been that Bishop Lynch of St. Petersburg diocese has forbidden all Eucharistic Adoration in his diocese -- wonder what he's going to think of this one!

Also, according to Will there are now a good number of pro-life witnesses present down in Florida, I believe he said about a hundred. Good news, considering a week ago there were almost as many pro-death people there as pro-life people.

At the same time, I have sad news as well. I also spoke with Brother Anthony today, Terri's parents believe she will die either today or tomorrow, and are already making preliminary plans to have a memorial service (since there will be no access to the body) on Saturday.

Br. Anthony suggested that they look into having a memorial service at the National Shrine, the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington D.C., attended by prelates from across the country, if not the world. Personally, while there is always hope while there is life, I like this idea a lot, and would suggest that we help in this endeavor by contacting the National Shrine to encourage them to offer the use of the church for such a service.
