The darkest places of hell

Governor Cuomo is drunk with power. His newest abortion push includes the following: "...a massive expansion of access to abortion in the state, including lifting restrictions on third-trimester abortions, allowing non-doctors to perform the procedure, and enshrining a fundamental right to “terminate a pregnancy” in New York state law."

This is simply and profoundly a heinous action, and he will have the blood of many little babies on his hands if this bill passes.

Also from the article:

The state Catholic Conference condemned the bill in a memo, saying, “It goes well beyond Roe.”
“This bill says that abortion is fundamental and thus untouchable – no regulations on abortion, ever. No parental notification for minors’ abortions, no limits on taxpayer funding of abortion, no limits on late-term abortions, no informed consent for pregnant women seeking abortion,” it stated. “None of the commonsense regulations enacted by the vast majority of states and supported by large majorities of the public would be allowed in New York.”

The reaction of Timothy Cardinal Dolan, the Bishop of New York, is lukewarm. Weak. Submissive. Fearful of stepping on political toes. May the great Dante visit the cardinal in his dreams tonight with this message: The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis. -- Dante Alighieri

New York is fast becoming one of those dark places, especially for the unborn.

Pure, unadulterated evil

Andrew Cuomo's Brave New 'Roe'

From the article:

Chris Slattery, director of the Expectant Mother Care (EMC) pregnancy centers in New York City, said the new law will make New York City the late-term abortion capital of the world.
“It’s going to open up the third-trimester market,” Slattery said. “It’s going to be huge, and people all over the world, not just out of state, are going to be coming to New York to have and perform these abortions.”

Abortionists speak

There are many Catholics in our parish who voted for the Party of Death, otherwise known as Democrats. They put aside their unease about abortion in order to vote for whatever else they thought was more important than innocent babies given a chance at life. In the end, I think, they will find that whatever temporal good they thought they were getting will become a millstone about their necks.

Here are "10 surprising quotes from abortionists." May there be much weeping and gnashing of teeth...and repentance. And may all of us pray for the unborn during this Year of Faith, during this Call to Prayer. And may our parish show its support for pre-born children through a solid emphasis on the Pro-life movement. May they support those who will be attending the March for Life, may homilies in support of Life from conception to natural death be preached, and may parishioners support our Respect Life Committee in spiritual and financial ways.

And may each and every parishioner gain the courage to speak out about abortion, to withstand the scourging that comes with speaking truth, to stand firm, and perhaps somehow, somewhere, to save a life, a soul.

Two of 10 quotes:

“Telling those women their fetuses feel pain is heaping torment upon torment. These women have real pain. They did not come to this decision easily. Creating another barrier for them to get the medical care they need is really unfair.”
– Abortionist Dave Turok

“Sorrow, quite apart from the sense of shame, is exhibited in some way by virtually every woman for whom I performed an abortion, and that’s 20,000 as of 1995. The sorrow is revealed by the fact that most women cry at some point during the experience… The grieving process may last from several days to several years… Grief is sometimes delayed… The grief may lie sublimated and dormant for years.”
 - Dr. Susan Poppema, abortionist

333,964

That is the number of unborn babies aborted by Planned Parenthood in the USA in 2011. Here is the article. Over the previous three-year period the number was nearly 1 million innocent, defenseless babies aborted.

Is this not the definition of human sacrifice?

When Our Lady of Guadalupe first appeared in Mexico to Juan Diego, the nation was given over to human sacrifice. Within a few years, the nation was converted and human sacrifice ceased.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.

Our Lady of Guadalupe

A traveling icon of our Lady of Guadalupe is here at All Saints Parish for the month of January. For information about its schedule go to the Knights of Columbus Council #281 website.

Here is some additional information about the icon. This icon has a papal blessing from Pope Benedict XVI. Also, it has been touched to the original image, which resides in Mexico.

For the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe, go here. There are many websites devoted to sharing the story.
