Apr 3 Good Friday Noon, Way of the Cross for Victims of Abortion
Through His Holy Passion, Our Lord united Himself with all the victims of suffering in this life. None suffer more innocently than children in the womb whose lives are taken by abortion. None suffer more deeply than their mothers, who carry such a burden of guilt and shame. On Good Friday we remember all the victims of abortion - the children lost, the mothers and fathers wounded, the communities blighted - in a solemn prayer service. Across from Planned Parenthood, 470 Pleasant Worc More Info: Call Julie at 508-320-2965
Please join us as we pray for healing for the victims of abortion and for a final end to this injustice in our land.

SERIES ON FAITH (#11) More from WORSHIPPING A HIDDEN GOD: Unlocking the Secrets of the Interior Life by Archbishop Luis M. Martinez (Sophia Institute Press: Manchester, New Hampshire: 2003, 2014):

"Somewhere, either in history or in legend, I read that God once said to Tauler, that doctor of the Middle Ages, that He was going to give him a master of the spiritual life. Tauler was to go to a certain church, and there at the door he would find this master. Tauler went and encountered a miserable beggar covered with rags. He greeted him and bade him good day. The beggar answered him, assuring him that all his days were good, since God sent all of them to him. Tauler understood the deep spiritual doctrine that those words contained.

Stand up for Indiana!
By Patrick J. Buchanan
In what has been called the “Catholic moment” in America, in the late 1940s and 1950s, Catholics were admonished from pulpits to “live the faith” and “set an example” for others.
Public lives were to reflect moral beliefs. Christians were to avoid those “living in sin.” Christians who operated motels and hotels did not rent rooms to unmarried couples. Fast forward to 21st-century America.
Indiana just enacted a law, as have 19 other states, to protect the rights of religious people to practice their beliefs in how they live their lives and conduct their businesses.
And the reaction? Nearly hysterical.
