It's getting awfully cold.

 

Can you feel it in your bones? 

You see, after forty years since Roe v. Wade, I don't think that many people feel the true implications - really FEEL it - when a "doctor" kills a preborn baby through methods more gruesome than the worst torture practices ever invented by man. 

You're not alone. I know how it is. 

Our minds protect us from the traumatic truth by numbing our feelings and slowing our actions as if overcome by frostbite. The sheer volume of millions upon millions of preborn baby deaths by abortion is not meant for the human mind to grasp.

 American Life League works to overcome apathy and numbness every day. Will you help us?

Think about it.

 

If we lived in the life-affirming world God meant for us, just ONE horrendous abortion would be front-page news. Ten abortions would be a national epidemic of evil. We would feel that bottomless pit in our stomach as we witness the inevitable decline of a society that is infected by rot and sickness. 

Can you tap deep into your emotions when you think of a defenseless, precious baby being murdered in the womb? Will you channel some of that intense energy into helping ALL to make 2014 a successful year?

 American Life League simply does not have the finances to engage in its ambitious plans to defend innocent life in 2014.  

We're serious about the next year. Our plans include making 2014 the year of THE END of Planned Parenthood's abortion business! 

While Obamacare administrators attempt to funnel $1 billion per year to the abortion industry, ALL will be working feverishly and effectively to undermine government support of Planned Parenthood. And we'll help faithful citizens to close down local abortion clinics. 

Your support at this time matters more than ever

Our financial capability to implement our historic plan matters more than ever

Please give $25, $50, $500 or even $1,000 or more to make big things happen! 

Your financial support and your prayers are always precious to me and the babies

Sincerely yours in the Lord Who IS Life,

Dear Jim ,
In just a couple of weeks, you and others will have the opportunity to raise much-needed funds for the Campaign for Human Rights for All Babies.
  
The Campaign: 
The point of the campaign is for pro-life supporters to raise money from people they know to help defend the lives of innocent, precious preborn babies who would otherwise die through agonizing abortions. Donations go to American Life League.
This is really fun and
easy, and it will make a huge difference in changing our culture and in saving lives! You may not have the time or the resources to do the groundwork needed to save babies across the country, but we will do that for you - if you and your friends can provide the resources.
 The campaign center has everything set up, so by answering just a few questions, you will have your own website. You can add your photos and videos to the site. Then you just use the center to contact family, friends, and people in the community to meet your fundraising goal.
 You can create a team and participate along with friends, church members, or other groups. Participants and teams also compete to meet their fundraising goals and earn popular prizes!

The campaign will begin in just a couple of weeks. Please stay tuned for an announcement of its start.

 Respect Life Month  2011 St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church Frisco, TX

I had the honor of hearing this beautiful story at a recent Respect Life event. It was presented by our own parishioner, Susan, and I encourage you to read it and reflect upon it during this month in which we focus on the sanctity of life.􀍶Fr. Larry 

My name is Susan I am the Respect Life Coordinator at St. Francis. My husband Dave and I have been parishioners for over 10 years. We are also the proud parents of three adopted children. Chandler is 6, Bennet is 4 and Dorie Beth is 2. We adopted all three children through Catholic Charities in Dallas as infants. We have an open relationship with all three of our little ones birth moms and their families.  All three women mean the world to us. We have enormous respect for them and the selfless gift they gave us through adoption. 

Each of our three adoption stories are beautiful and I could write a book telling the story of each one, but now I want to tell you the story of our third little miracle, Dorie Beth. I asked her birth mom, Marcella, and she gave me permission to tell it. 

Three years ago Marcella was 32. She was going through a hard time in her life. She was trying desperately to get her life on track, but just couldn’t seem to do it. She has a little boy, Grant, who was about 2 months old at the time. 

Grant has a rare genetic blood disorder, called Glanzmans Thrombasthenia, which is similar to hemophelia, where his blood has trouble clotting. When he gets a cut, his body usually cannot stop bleeding on its own. He must go to the ER and in many cases has to have a platelet transfusion or even a whole blood transfusion. Each tooth that he loses or each skinned knee could truly be a fatal incident. As he gets older, the risk will get worse. 

Marcella found herself pregnant again, from the same birthfather as Grant. The two babies would be less than a year apart in age. 

Marcella was a single mom. She already had her hands full taking care of Grant and since the two have the same biological parents, the likelihood of this child having the same disease was very high. 

Marcella was overwhelmed with all the things going on in her life. She made the painful decision to have an abortion. 

Talking about this step is still really painful for Marcella. She has a hard time even telling the story, but she did tell me that she went to Routh Street abortion clinic. She told me she noticed people outside praying. She went inside and they put her on the table to have the abortion. She said she just started crying and said she couldn’t go through with it. By the grace of God, she realized this child was no different than her Grant, a child. She left the abortion center in tears and went home determined that she was going to place this child for adoption. 

She researched several agencies and was at a loss until her eighth month when she was in the ER with Grant and a nurse told her about Catholic Charities. She started working with them and eventually chose to meet us. We knew going into this adoption that there were a lot of risks. This baby could be born with the same blood disorder as Grant, as well as other potential complications, but we felt a peace to move forward. 

I was able to go to a few doctor appointments with her. The whole family even attended an ultrasound session. It was such a fun time of bonding for all of us. Marcella invited me to be in the delivery room and asked me to cut the cord. That was a first for me! 

Marcella gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, who is completely healthy. Praise be to God! 

We were all so excited to have a new little baby girl in the family. I can still remember Chandler running up and down the hospital aisles passing out pink bubble gum cigars to everyone he saw. 

We named her Dorothy Elizabeth (Dorie Beth). Dorothy, which means “Gift from God,” after my mom who had been praying for this child long before we knew she existed. 

Marcella and I have become very close. We get together about once a month. She looks so forward to seeing Dorie Beth. We love Marcella and consider her and her family extended family. 

Marcella was able to save Dorie Beth’s cord blood and after much testing, the doctors determined that Dorie Beth and Grant are a complete blood match. 

After Christmas, Grant will have a complete bone marrow transplant, where he will undergo chemotherapy to wipe out his bone marrow and Dorie Beth’s cord blood stem cells and possibly bone marrow will be transplanted into him. Grant will be in the hospital for a minimum of two and a half months and will be in isolation at home for six months to a year afterwards, but ultimately, Dorie Beth will save his life. 

If Marcella had gone through with the abortion, not only would she have lost this precious child, she could have lost her little boy, as well. 

God has a plan for each person. This adoption has made all of us better people. I know Dave and I (as well as Chandler and Bennet) are better for having known Marcella, Grant and her family. Marcella is a different person. She’s going to school, living with her grandma and is a wonderful mommy to Grant. She has made a complete life transformation. 

I know it was the hardest decision that our three birth moms ever had to make when they chose adoption. I also know that they would have liked to raise their baby on their own. Instead, they made the most selfless choice possible. They chose to do what was best for their child and place them in a loving family. 

I can’t imagine life without Dorie Beth now. Her two brothers adore her and think she hung the moon.  Dave … he’s in love  with her. She already has him wrapped around her little finger. And to think... we were so close to never knowing her. 

We are just one example of a family that has grown from someone else’s gift of Life.  I don’t know who was outside that day at Routh Street abortion clinic praying for Marcella and Dorie Beth, but I do Know those prayers worked and saved our baby’s life.

 

Custodia Di Terra Santa -- Mary in Blue

"Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and He will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?" (Matthew 26:53) At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to write about this painting. The scripture in many ways says it all; but perhaps it would be enlightening to some to know the background and some of the deeper symbolism with , "Awaiting the Command." I was first approached by Jason Bullard, founder of Lynn Weldon Publishing, with the concept of this painting. I agreed that it would make a powerful painting in that it fully encompasses the strength and dignity of the Savior of the world. The painting depicts Jesus standing before Pilate as he is about to be taken away by the guards to carry his cross to Calvary. His body shows the whip marks of the flogging. He stands tall and dignified despite the tattered red robe and crown of thorns he is forced to wear by the Roman guards. At this moment the Roman guards wait for the command of Pilate to take Jesus away. Pilate has just washed his hands. You can see the wash basin between the pillars on the right. directly behind the guards are two enormous angels, standing with great anticipation and eagerness at any moment to intercede and destroy the wicked enemy. One angel rests his hands on the hilt of a huge sword. The sword resembles a cross which alludes to the fore looming crucifixion. The other angel holds her hands up to constrain the dark figure behind the pillar. The evil one is not allowed to cross the limits of his existence. The arched doorway frames the Messiah in a godly manner to emphasize His power and divinity. Jesus stands on a detailed mosaic floor typical of the time. The floor motif has the waves of water which I felt would be symbolic of the miracle when He walked on the Sea of Galilee. His feet stand directly on the lotus flower which is a symbol of the resurrection. The resurrection would be the triumphant moment when Jesus would overcome death and His mission would be complete. This painting makes me wonder. What if he had paused and not allowed Himself to be delivered up to be crucified. If He had summoned the angels to intercede--what would become of us all? Because of Jesus' great love for all of us, I believe we may be saved and return to a wonderful place prepared for us. Only through Jesus Christ could this have been possible. I felt a great love and admiration for Him as I painted this thought provoking image.     Jon McNaughton

 

Once again the Devil has sent his weak minded
 servant to our church and defaced our beloved
 Mary / Pro-Life monument.

Mary is always seen draped in Blue and now her halo of blue lights has been stolen from her .
Gifts given to Mary, flower & candles, removed by judgmental , self-righteous people will answer to Mary.
The Legion of Mary, Knights of Columbus, around the world, pray for the redemption of their soul.

Now a small minded group, with office protection, wants to remove this Mary,
 and place Mary , uncovered, on top of a pile of rocks surrounded by a water Moat
 to prevent people from touching or placing flowers at THERE statue.
A model & donation box are in the church.

Canon Law # 1171

One of these two devices is responsible for millions of innocent children deaths every year
Guess which one
A Rosary Vigils held at Holy Spirit's  Pro-Life Memorial
Third Sunday of each month following all the Sunday morning Masses.
To pray five decades of the Rosary to end abortion.

 

Guilt, regret, shame depression. These are just some of the many emotions women express days,
 weeks and years after an abortion. Many women carry the guilt and regret of abortion silently.
I wanted to let you know that Birth Choice Health Clinic is starting a new Restore,
 Post-Abortion Support session in the coming weeks.
 Restore helps women find freedom and healing from the pain of a past abortion.
 The groups are confidential and last 8 weeks.
 Please put the word out to your congregation and have anyone interested
contact me or Jennifer Wallace at 714-541-5484, ext. 225 or restore@birthchoiceclinic.org.

Year for Priests: join our spiritual bouquet and tell us your stories
Pope Benedict XVI has declared a “Year for Priests” which began on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on June 19, 2009.  Priests for Life is inviting the laity to prepare a massive spiritual bouquet which will be presented this Fall to all the priests of the country....   MORE   

 

 

A Winning Team:
 There are many reasons why pro-lifers are on the "Winning Team" as outlined in a recent article by Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life.
 The reasons are:
 1. Young people are joining the pro-life side because they realize that the millions who died by abortion would have been their friends, relatives, sisters, brothers, and spouses.
 2. Many women and men around the world are speaking out how they regret having their child killed by abortion.
 3.There is a growing body of medical, psychological, and sociological evidence that abortion harms women, men, and families.

 4. Abortion clinics are closing because of a shortage of abortionists. More and more doctors are avoiding becoming abortionists because of the stigma attached to it, since abortionists are considered the "losers" of the medical profession.
 5. More people are converting from being pro-choice to pro-life than from pro-life to pro-choice.
 6. The promises of abortion supporters that abortion would improve society by reducing child abuse, and strengthening family life have not come true. It has actually made these problems worse.

 7. Pro-abortion political action committees have been losing most of the political races even though they have outspent pro-life groups by wide margins.
 8. Court decisions are finally swinging to the pro-life side as evidenced by the recent upholding of the law against partial birth abortion.
 9. There has been legislative progress to protect the legal status of unborn children, such as the Born Alive Infants Protection Act and the Unborn Victims of Violence Act.
10. The filth in abortion clinics, falsifying of medical records, sexual abuse of women seeking abortions, failing to report statutory rape of minors, and rampant OSHA violations are resulting in clinics being closed down by state authorities.

Timeline of a pre born child

The timeline below only reinforces the awesome nature of God, the Author of Life. Each of us started our lives in this manner.
 And so it is with each of God's precious children.
Immediately upon fertilization, cellular development begins. Even before implantation, the sex of the new life can be determined.
At implantation, the new life is composed of hundreds of cells and has developed a protective hormone to prevent the mother's body from rejecting it as a foreign tissue

 

The Grassroots Abortion War
 Thursday, Feb. 15, 2007   By NANCY GIBBS

 At 17 days, the new life has developed its own blood cells; the placenta is a part of the new life and not of the mother.
 At 18 days, occasional pulsations of a muscle this will be the heart.
 At 19 days, the eyes start to develop.
 At 20 days, the foundation of the entire nervous system has been laid down.
 At 24 days, the heart has regular beats or pulsations.
 At 28 days, 40 pairs of muscles are developed along the trunk of the new life, arms and legs are forming.
 At 30 days, regular blood flow within the vascular system; the ears and nasal development have begun.
 At 40 days, the heart energy output is reported to be almost 20% of an adult.
 At 42 days, skeleton complete and the reflexes are present.
 At 43 days, electrical brain wave patterns can be recorded. This is usually ample evidence that "thinking" is taking place in the brain.
 At 49 days, the baby has the appearance of a miniature doll with complete fingers, toes and ears.
 At 56 days, all organs functioning stomach, liver, kidney, brain all systems intact. Lines in palms.
This is approximately two months before "quickening" yet there is a new life with all of its parts needing only nourishment.
The mother will usually not feel the child's movements until four months after conception.
 9th and 10th week, squints. swallows, retracts tongue.
 11th and 12th week, arms and legs move, sucks thumb, inhales and exhales amniotic fluid, nails appearing.
 16 weeks, genital organs clearly differentiated, grasps with hands. swims, kicks and turns somersaults (still not felt by mother).
 18 weeks, vocal cords working -- can cry.
 20 weeks, hair appears on head; weight--one pound; height--12 inches. A fetus (little one, child, baby) is essentially no different at fertilization, 10 weeks, 20 weeks or 30 weeks.

    A person is a person, no matter how small.
