Mangalika's Story: An HIV-positive Catholic Woman Helps Fellow AIDS Patients
The 53-year-old woman discovered she had contracted the virus from her husband, a migrant worker, who could not resist the shame and committed suicide.

In Sri Lanka, the disease is still stigmatised, even though at least 3,000 people are affected. "They threatened me and tried to set fire to my house," she said, "but I thank the Lord for showing me the way."

New! Franchising Abortion and Sterilization
Big Porn, Big Pharma, Big Government and NGOs are partnering to make abortion and sterilization salable in India
Think of franchises, and McDonald's or Starbucks springs to mind. But how about franchising clinics that do abortions and sterilizations? The population control movement has thought of this too. In the developing world, so-called "reproductive health clinics" are spreading like fast food chains in America through a network of organizations that want abortion and birth control drugs as readily available as a slurpee at 7 Eleven.
As America approaches nearly four decades of condom and contraception-centered sexuality education in schools and physician offices across the nation with increased availability of condoms and contraception to teens, how have American adolescents fared? The answer is: not well. Adolescents now face a growing three-part epidemic of STIs, teen pregnancy and depression.
Two US states have laws violating the rights of parents and children to seek counseling for same-sex attraction.
Faithful Catholics in the US have been both stunned and gratified by the recent show of episcopal strength in dealing with the heretical nonsense of "Catholics" in public life who clearly misrepresent the Church's teaching on vital issues.
25th Sunday in Ordinary Time (A)
We who live in this part of Mindanao have gone through tough times. We have been through the wars of the early 1970's. We have lived through the earthquake and tsunami of 1976 that leveled the city and washed away coastal villages. We have survived the droughts of El Nino in the 80's and 90's . We have enjoyed sporadic peace in the past thirty years. Just recently we have experienced massive floods as incessant rains brought water from five provinces to the Maguindanao river basin. We have survived.
McCrystal's book, simply written, filled with interviews that he had with different couples, and rooted in his own experience and in very good research into relevant literature, is a very helpful book. It is of special educational value because it shows the harm that the practice of contraception can do to marital life and love, and also shows the benefits couples experience who use NFP as a morally legitimate way to limit (or increase) the size of their families.
We all need to be reminded that a huge part of fighting the US HSS mandates for contraception, sterilization and abortion begins in the local school districts. Planned Parenthood Sex Education, which is Sex-only education to our minor children, fuels the sexual activity that has driven the demand for these entitlements. The answer is quite simple; teach abstinence. The farther away we get from this basic human life skill, abstaining from all sexual activity until marriage, the worse it gets.
Those who continue to pretend that abortion is a clean, painless, happy procedure are either ignorant of the medical facts, or choose to ignore them. Even well-known feminist Naomi Wolf, in a 1995 essay Our Bodies, Our Souls, has attacked abortion advocates for their hypocrisy. Though she was (and is) pro-choice, Wolf recognized that abortion is a violent, primitive, and unholy act.
