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

Well. We got what we deserved.

open book: The referenda:

When good people do nothing, evil wins over. My fault as much as anyone else's - could have, would have, should have done more... I'm going to go take the only "morning after pill" - going to Mass, in reparation for what our country is doing.

I don't even care much about the new mix-up in the House/Senate - other than to hope the Senate stays in Republican hands in case there is another SCOTUS nomination. No, I'm way beyond "parties" and now am finally, firmly, all about LIFE.

God bless America... in spite of everything!

The interesting thing is, and I hope this is correct, the Deomocratic victory could actually in the end strengthen the pro-life position, because the Democrats won in large part due to their newfound pro-life attitude. Obviously the majority of Democrats are pro-abortion rights, and the biggest reasons for voting out Republicans was the war and the scandals (good reasons indeed, I say), but had it not been for pro-life democratic senators running, the senate almost certainly would not have been in play. I'm in Pa (but an NJ voter), and Casey would almost certainly not have won had he been pro-abortion rights (his pro-life credentials are shaky, in my opinion, but that's another story). So my point is that this election could prove to the Democratic party that they need to open their tent to legitimate pro-life voices, which would be a wonderful thing!

It's sad, because there was a time when being Catholic made it an easy choice to be a Democrat, because in a lot of ways they should be our kind of people. But with the issue of life, it is almost impossible to be a Catholic and vote for a Democrat anymore, and that is sad.
