“To love – one’s self and others – with God’s love: How needful this is in our time when love is almost completely misunderstood. How profitable it would be to think more carefully and more deeply about the radical peculiarity of God’s love. It seems to me sometimes that the first peculiarity is its cruelty. It means – MUTATIS MUTANDIS [the necessary changes having been made] – the absence of the sentimentality with which the world and Christianity have usually identified that love. In God’s love, there is no promise of earthly happiness, no concern about it. Rather, that love is totally submitted to the promise and the concern about the Kingdom of God, that is, the absolute happiness for which God has created man, to which he is calling man. Thus, the first essential conflict between God’s love and the fallen human love. ‘Cut off your hand,’ ‘pluck out your eye,’ ‘leave your wife and children,’ ‘follow the narrow way. . .’ – all of it is so obviously irreconcilable with happiness in life. This is what turned off this world from total love and what filled it with hatred. But – and this is so important – the world became turned off when in the Church itself something changed, something was ‘turned off.’ But about that I might write some other time. I must go to church and join in the Holy Week. . ." (From entry for Holy Monday, April 20, 1981, p. 291)

Abortions for everyone!
Recently in Commonwealth Magazine, former Senate President Harriett Chandler and NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts Executive Director Rebecca Hart Holder authored a piece urging the legislature to act to expand access to abortion. The subtitle? “Those Under 18 Shouldn’t Need Permission for an Abortion.”
They write: “Current state laws create unnecessary hurdles to access abortion care; they require young women under the age of 18 to obtain parental consent or appear before a judge to gain permission to have an abortion. Additionally, women … can be forced to travel great distances and spend tens of thousands of dollars to receive abortion care… Such laws are unfair and unjust, robbing women of the vital healthcare they deserve.”
This is a battle that We as Pro-Lifers must fight. Please help us stop them with two simple actions:
1. Talk to your legislator in person—when you see him or her at an event this Christmas, or at office hours. Make a plan. Seek him out. Ask if this legislation is really what he has as a priority. Is it what he signed up for when running for office? Plan to attend our Lobby Day next year.
2. Donate to Renew MA to help them to bring activists to the State House to lobby against this, to launch advertisements to tell voters that it is coming, and to contact tens of thousands of regular people who will get involved if they know what the legislature has planned.
$100 will allow Renew MA to contact over 10,000 voters with an autocall, and $50 will allow for over 10,000 impressions to targeted voters on Facebook.
