Dr. Assisted Suicide hearing this Tuesday Sept. 26th

Great news: President Donald Trump's Department of Justice has sided with Christian baker Jack Phillips in a critical religious liberty case pending before the US Supreme Court, Masterpiece Cakeshop v Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

A devout Christian, Mr. Phillips declined to create a custom-designed 'wedding' cake for a gay couple celebrating their same-sex 'marriage', because his religious beliefs inform his understanding that marriage can only be the union of one man and one woman. The government of Colorado punished him for upholding his beliefs, imposing a fine, mandating that he and his staff undergo "reeducation counseling" and ordering him to file mandatory compliance reports.

It's time for our political leaders in Washington – especially President Donald Trump, Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Leader Mitch McConnell – to do what they have repeatedly promised to do and protect the religious liberty rights of Americans, particularly those who believe in marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Please sign this petition that the White House and Congress protect Religious Freedom.

Sep 19 Tue DAY 37 - MARY, HELP OF CHRISTIANS, PRAY FOR US – 54 Day Novena for our Nation
SET THE WORLD ABLAZE
The word "courage" actually derives its meaning from a Latin root word "cor" which means "heart." It means we are never more courageous than when we "have the courage of our convictions," that is, when we live from the heart, remaining true to who we really are. Lombardi was courageous because he simply yielded to his raison d'être, his reason for existence. St. Catherine of Siena put it this way: "If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world ablaze!"

8th of 12 Cardinals and Bishops Condemn Gender Theory Madness. Great Quotes.
Most Rev. Thomas Paprocki, Bishop of Springfield, Illinois
“The transgender activists would have you believe that their politically correct ideology is based on science; however, the American College of Pediatricians has pointed out that transgenderism is classified as a mental illness and therefore has warned legislators and educators that conditioning children to accept transgenderism as normal is child abuse. They advised, 'When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind, not the body, and it should be treated as such.'
"... People who are confused about their gender identity—especially children and adolescents—should be treated with compassion and provided counseling rather than being further confused by activists promoting their political ideology."

Pro-Life updates including 40 Days for Life

One of the biggest stories of the week was the outrageous interrogation of Notre Dame Law Professor Amy Coney Barrett by Senators Dianne Feinstein and Dick Durbin. Feinstein has received considerable criticism (rightly so!) for questioning whether Barrett’s faith would imperil her impartiality as a judge. During a hearing last week, Feinstein blurted, “the dogma lives loudly in you.”

DAY 33 - MARY, MORNING STAR, PRAY FOR US UNITY IN TRUTH Devil's Tactic #2 - Divide and Conquer The second modern tactic of the devil is actually the very ancient military strategy of "divide and conquer." This strategy is defined as one that separates a force that would be stronger if united. As we said, the devil is roaming around like a lion that sizes up the herd to find the easiest target. He is also watching to see who is separated from the herd. Large, coordinated forces are difficult to defeat. If the enemy can separate us into small units or individuals, he can more easily defeat each one.

7th of 12 Cardinals and Bishops Condemn Gender Theory Madness. Great Quotes.
Most Rev. Rudolf Voderholzer
Bishop of Regensburg, Germany
“Gender theoreticians use the equality issues in order to introduce in society a notion of man that goes far beyond specific concerns of equality and, finally, paradoxically, leads to the dissolution of that which ought to be protected, specifically the intrinsic value of male and female existence. The gender theory implies a denial of the nature of man and woman and, hence, also the exclusion of the belief in God, the good Creator… the essence of man and woman is the potential to become a father and the potential to become a mother, respectively. These are not exchangeable roles, but, rather, gifts from the Creator, and, in the last instance, a calling… gender theory [is] an ideology that completely opposes reality and the integrity of human nature.”

6th of 12 Cardinals and Bishops Condemn Gender Theory Madness. Great Quotes.
Most Rev. Demeterio Fernández González, Bishop of Cordoba, Spain
“[G]ender ideology is an atomic bomb that wants to destroy Catholic doctrine, the image of God in man, and the image of God the Creator.”

Bears Repeating:
Fr. Mitch Pacwa explained during a talk at the EWTN Family event in Worcester, just how to answer the charges that Religion, specifically Christianity, is responsible for most death and violence in the world. U. of Hawaii study puts the number of all deaths during Christian ‘Wars’ including the Crusades in 2000 years as 2-2.25 Million. When the French Revolution started, followed by Napoleon’s reign as Emperor, the Humanist death toll reached 3 Million in 20 years, exceeding the Christian 2000 year total. By the late 1880’s Weimar’s Kulture Kampf or Culture struggle (yes – Mein Kampf was a response to Weimar by Hitler) was laying the foundation of Nationalism, where Nations were all important, 1st, ahead of God. When WW1 broke out, Pope Benedict XV ordered all Catholic Dioceses to pray for peace – Germany, France & Spain refused. Humanist death toll from 1914-2000 was 305 Million.
