Legalized Sacrifice – a 23-month-old boy

The Culture of Death takes one giant step forward in Britain. A British judge, passing a verdict from his lofty position, looked down on Alfie Evans, a 23-month-old boy who was in a “semi-vegetative state” and stated in so many words that human care and treatment for him were “unkind and inhumane”. He overrode the wishes of Alfie’s parents “to protect their child” and condemned him “to die” by authorizing the hospital to remove his life supports. He decided on his own that the love of Alfie’s parents and the medical treatment were not in Alfie’s “best interests”. For one moment, the judge played God, a false human God who lacked compassion, love and the will to protect the rights of another human being. The sole purpose of judges was established to secure human life, human rights, not to judge its worth. Judges serve mankind, not vice versa. This fact is not debatable. Continue reading at Fr.

New! 'Humanae Vitae' Celebrates Women

Judie Brown
When we consider the various crises in our world today that have been created by a cultural thirst for sexual pleasure and perversion, by the feminist movement, and by the enormous number of women who have aborted their babies, we can see even more clearly why Humanae Vitae embodies the truths we need to share with those we encounter, especially those who are searching for Christ without even knowing that this is their quest.

Solemnity of All Saints (Year B)

Jeremiah R. Grosse
The Church presents us with countless witnesses such as St. Benedict, St. Paul of the Cross, St. Francis and others for guidance and emulation. The only difference between any of those saints and us is that they are already where we want to be. On this Solemnity of All Saints we honor all those men and women who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith, but we also keep in mind that as long as we remain faithful to the end we too will one day join them at the Heavenly banquet. What a joy it will be to be able to spend time with the Blessed Mother, St. Benedict, St. Francis or any of the other saints that we have turned to throughout the years for intercession and get to know them on a personal level.

Judie Brown

Recently, when Polish lawmakers chose to debate a proposal regarding this matter, "the Polish bishops conference issued a strong statement on the moral dangers of artificial procreation techniques like in vitro fertilization and so-called 'surrogacy.'"
