“It follows that the inevitable law and the obstinate passion of Naturalism is to dethrone Our Lord Jesus Christ and to drive him from the world. This will be the task of [the] Antichrist and it is Satan‘s ambition…”[click to continue...]
The op-ed admits “semantic gymnastics” are necessary to reconcile adherence to this “new ethic” on abortion. When everyone knows life begins at conception, they admit it is “ludicrous” to expect people to support abortion. To get over this barrier of the Natural Law, they say they have implemented a necessary “schizophrenic sort of subterfuge” to confuse themselves and others.[click to continue...]
Did you know the Bible foretold of a society that had “ungodly men” make “a covenant with death?”
You can read it in the Book of Wisdom, a book written about 1,000 years before the birth of Jesus Christ. I will share the passage with you below.
The right-to-life movement would be essentially erased, if pro-life advocates adopt Renkl’s short-sighted supposed solution.
Let’s begin by observing the most obvious error in her thinking. That is, by agreeing to not talk about the issues of abortion, contraception, so-called “gay marriage,” L.G.B.T. issues, and so forth, we would thus guarantee their further decaying of our culture. Only by shining a light into the darkness of sinful behavior does such behavior ever end. “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them,” the Bible instructs (Eph 5:11).[click to continue...]
If you’re unborn and an inconvenience, then you don’t have any “right” to exist any longer. If you’re old and too much of a burden, you become dispensable.
In essence, we live in a culture where certain people can decide certain other people’s lives are expendable.[click to continue...]
Finally, I imagine most every priest and deacon who preaches from the pulpit wants to be well-received. The consolation that comes from a pat on the back after a good sermon feels good. Thus, to broach on subjects that make people squirm in their seats means risking to be disliked.
Pope Saint John Paul II foresaw this and has an exhortation for those facing this human frailty.[click to continue...]
Just as children are so often deemed ‘burdensome’ with no value to contribute, the same can be said of those being euthanized, the elderly and handicapped. Rather than humans having intrinsic value, contraception asks its users to adopt a utilitarian valuation of human life. Only those determined to be contributing an arbitrarily-allotted impact on society are worth keeping around. Babies can’t work and don’t pay taxes—and neither do the very elderly or the handicapped. Together, they become disposable.[click to continue...]
“Hospice programs are independent from one another and the services provided are not the same. It is essential you interview a hospice prior to signing on for care and allowing them into your home. When seeking hospice care, keep in mind your values should come first and must never be compromised.”[click to continue...]
Do you have a living will? Do you know what it says about “extraordinary care?”
If not, re-read that section of your living will. If your document says something to the effect that “no extraordinary care shall be taken” to extend your life, shred your document and get something else.
The medical community and Catholic moral teaching have differing definitions of “extraordinary care.”
Pickering, Sr. brought a gun with him to the hospital and barricaded himself inside his son’s room, inducing a three-hour standoff. This illegal maneuver actually ended up saving his son’s life.
He felt his son just needed a little more time to prove he had not passed away. Three hours was all it took.[click to continue...]
