Mary TV July 25, 2016 Reflection – Let’s prepare for the new message today!

St. James, Apostle
 
Dear Family of Mary!
 
As we prepare to receive a message today, let’s reflect and pray with the last 5 messages that Our Lady has given us on the 25th of the month. I find these messages to be quite amazing! You might want to use them as meditations before each decade of your Rosary! I think you will find that one of the major theme between them all is “Conversion”!!
 
February 25, 2016 “Dear children! In this time of grace, I am calling all of you to conversion. Little children, you love little and pray even less. You are lost and do not know what your goal is. Take the cross, look at Jesus and follow Him. He gives Himself to you to the death on the cross, because He loves you. Little children, I am calling you: return to prayer with the heart so as to find hope and the meaning of your existence, in prayer. I am with you and am praying for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
 
March 25, 2016 “Dear children! Today I am carrying my love to you. God permitted me to love you and, out of love, to call you to conversion. You, little children, are poor in love and you still have not comprehended that my Son Jesus, out of love, gave His life to save you and to give you eternal life. Therefore pray, little children, pray so that in prayer you may comprehend God’s love. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
 
April 25, 2016 “Dear children! My Immaculate Heart bleeds as I look at you in sin and sinful habits. I am calling you: return to God and to prayer that it may be good for you on earth. God is calling you through me for your hearts to be hope and joy for all those who are far away. May my call be for you a balm for the soul and heart so that you may glorify God, the Creator, who loves you and is calling you to eternity. Little children, life is short; you, make good use of this time and do what is good. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
 
May 25, 2016 “Dear children! My presence is a gift from God for all of you and an encouragement for conversion. Satan is strong and wants to put disorder and unrest in your hearts and thoughts. Therefore, you, little children, pray so that the Holy Spirit may lead you on the real way of joy and peace. I am with you and intercede before my Son for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
 
June 25, 2016 “Dear children! Give thanks to God with me for the gift of my being with you. Pray, little children, and live God’s commandments that it may be good for you on earth. Today, on this day of grace, I desire to give you my motherly blessing of peace and of my love. I intercede for you with my Son and call you to persevere in prayer so that, with you, I can realize my plans. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
 
Dearest Mother, we want to respond to your call. Make our hearts ready to receive your words today with openness and a desire to change. We love you, dearest Mother!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Pro-Abortion Tim Kaine is no ‘Pope Francis Catholic’

vote11

Tribulation Times

July 25, 2016

(1Jn 1:6-7) If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in darkness, we lie and do not the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he also is in the light, we have fellowship one with another: And the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

BISHOP THOMAS J. TOBIN: VP Pick, Tim Kaine, a Catholic?

Democratic VP choice, Tim Kaine, has been widely identified as a Roman Catholic. It is also reported that he publicly supports “freedom of choice” for abortion, same-sex marriage, gay adoptions, and the ordination of women as priests. All of these positions are clearly contrary to well-established Catholic teachings; all of them have been opposed by Pope Francis as well. Senator Kaine has said, “My faith is central to everything I do.” But apparently, and unfortunately, his faith isn’t central to his public, political life.

NEWSLINKPro-Abortion Tim Kaine is no ‘Pope Francis Catholic’

EXCERPT CATHOLIC WORLD REPORT: And, as it turns out, Sen. Kaine has a 100% approval rating from both Planned Parenthood and NARAL. How, exactly, does that make him a “Pope Francis Catholic”? Has the WaPo forgotten that Francis explicitly condemned abortion in Laudato Si, stating, “Since everything is interrelated, concern for the protection of nature is also incompatible with the justification of abortion. How can we genuinely teach the importance of concern for other vulnerable beings, however troublesome or inconvenient they may be, if we fail to protect a human embryo, even when its presence is uncomfortable and creates difficulties? ‘If personal and social sensitivity towards the acceptance of the new life is lost, then other forms of acceptance that are valuable for society also wither away'” (par 120).

In other words, Francis understands, as every good Catholic should, that social justice is not a matter of cafeteria-styled belief and action. Or how about in Amoris Laetitia, where Francis reiterated that “the Church strongly rejects the forced State intervention in favour of contraception, sterilization and even abortion” and further stated that “[s]uch measures are unacceptable” (42). Or, in an address in Cuba: “Children aren’t loved, they’re killed before being born.” Or, in his address to American bishops during his 2015 visit:

I encourage you, then, to confront the challenging issues of our time. Ever present within each of them is life as gift and responsibility. The future freedom and dignity of our societies depends on how we face these challenges.

The innocent victim of abortion, children who die of hunger or from bombings, immigrants who drown in the search for a better tomorrow, the elderly or the sick who are considered a burden, the victims of terrorism, wars, violence and drug trafficking, the environment devastated by man’s predatory relationship with nature – at stake in all of this is the gift of God, of which we are noble stewards but not masters. It is wrong, then, to look the other way or to remain silent.

Of course, it should go without saying that Catholic teaching doesn’t have anything but condemnation for abortion, which is a grave evil. After all, unborn lives matter.

FR. LONGENECKERThe Curse of the Kennedy Catholics

AMERICAN THINKERTim Kaine: Abortion is murder, and that’s totally fine

VIA LIFENEWS.COM: Kaine took his most extreme pro-abortion action yet with his recent co-sponsorship of the so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act” (S.217), known to pro-lifers as the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act.” This bill would nullify nearly all existing state and federal limitations on regulation of abortion, and prohibit states from enacting meaningful pro-life laws in the future. This revamped version of the long-stalled “Freedom of Choice Act” is a priority of the pro-abortion forces in Washington, D.C.
Ladder of Divine Ascent excerpt: Step 7- “On Joy-Making Mourning”

1. Mourning according to God is sadness of soul and the disposition of a sorrowing heart, which ever madly seeks that for which it thirsts; and when it fails in its quest, it painfully pursues it, and follows in its wake grievously lamenting. Or thus: mourning is a golden spur in a soul which is stripped of all attachment and of all ties, fixed by holy sorrow to watch over the heart.

Life Issues Forum: Connecting Domestic Abuse and Abortion

Connecting Domestic Abuse and Abortion                                     July 22, 2016
By Mary McClusky
Police recently found twenty-three-year-old Candace Pickens of Asheville, North Carolina, dead in a park. Nathaniel Dixon, the father of their unborn child, is charged with her murder. Family members say Candace’s refusal to have an abortion sparked the violence.
This heartbreaking story is just one example of the connection between domestic abuse and abortion. Studies show that pregnancy often escalates violence between intimate partners, which can lead to miscarriage, or even the death of both mother and child. Many women are coerced or forced into an abortion by their abusers.
For a woman who has suffered violence, abortion adds further layers of trauma—not least the death of her child—from which to heal. Fathers are affected, too. One of the symptoms of post-abortion trauma can be anger or even rage. Those facilitating post-abortion healing ministry with men in prison say there is often a strong connection between involvement in a previous abortion and their other violent offenses.
Recently, the Guttmacher Institute, a research organization founded by abortion provider Planned Parenthood, released an analysis saying that victims of intimate partner violence need the full range of “reproductive health services,” their term for contraception and abortion. What the Guttmacher Institute won’t say is what so many post-abortive women share: that abortion is often not even the woman’s choice, and coerced abortions happen more often than is commonly known.
The bishops recognized this victimization of women, citing forced abortion as one example of domestic violence in their statement “When I Call For Help.” Originally released in 1992 after a series of focus groups with women, the statement was reaffirmed in 2002.
            “When I Call for Help” inspired over 350 clergy and laypeople from across the country to gather recently in Washington for the first ever Domestic Violence Symposium. Sponsored by Catholics for Family Peace and CUA’s National Catholic School of Social Sciences, event cosponsors included the National Council of Catholic Women, several offices of the USCCB, Catholic Charities USA, and Catholic Charities of both the Archdiocese of Washington and the Diocese of Arlington.
The gathering’s theme, “Hope, Help, and Healing: A Catholic Response to Domestic Abuse and Violence,” explored new ways for clergy, diocesan Catholic Charities, Family Life, Respect Life, and Project Rachel Ministries to work together to offer help, encourage healing, and promote forgiveness.
Echoing the call for forgiveness, Candace Pickens’ father told a crowd at a candlelight vigil for his daughter that everyone needs to come together in love. His words reflect the truth that everyone, both victim and perpetrator, has God-given dignity. Though incredibly difficult, forgiveness and love will help to heal the suffering and stop the cycle of violence.
Let us pray that all victims and perpetrators of domestic abuse or coerced abortion may learn that they were made in God’s image, created to love and be loved. Let us work to build awareness of the relationship between domestic abuse and abortion, find ways to prevent both, and offer hope in Christ to those who suffer.

Spirit & Life – Where the Faith is Living…

 

Your Support Helps HLI Defend Life & Family Around the World!
Praise God! Our pro-life training conference here in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania has been a great success. Dr. Brian Clowes, Emil Hagamu and I have been sharing with regional pro-life leaders what we’ve learned in our travels about the tactics and well-known strategies of the population control industry and what has worked in stopping them.

Getting to spend time with our country directors from the region has been wonderful-Brian and I are uplifted by their energy and inspired by their ideas. We have some powerful partners, who, in collaboration with Mr. Hagamu, are spreading the Gospel of Life and holding political leaders accountable. It is an honor to serve in this mission alongside them, to add the knowledge of the Church’s social and moral doctrine with the reality of the fight for life and family to their already flourishing faith and work.

It was also a joy to meet with Polycarp Cardinal Pengo, Archbishop of Dar es Salaam; a consistent and strong defender of Christ and his Church. When Cardinal Pengo was elevated to archbishop in 1992, he announced his goal of expanding from 25 parishes to 100. There are now 101, and priestly and religious vocations are flourishing as well. We visited one Church under construction that will accommodate over 1,500 people.

Life and Family: Signs of a Living Faith

So, yes, you could say that the Church is alive here! Even large parishes often have several Masses on Sunday, each one filled to the doors. You should hear the singing! Many of the seminaries are overflowing with young men eager to give their lives to Christ in the priesthood. Shepherds like Cardinal Pengo and Cardinal Sarah defend the Church and her teachings openly and without apology. They often take time to personally spend time with the faithful in parishes. Families have more children and there is much less divorce than we suffer in the U.S. There are certainly social problems here, not least of which is the extreme poverty that some suffer. The billions spent annually by the “development” industry to attack life and family have certainly taken a toll, but the Church and many community leaders are putting up a brave fight. Simply put, the Church in Africa is joyful and confident, alive and growing.

Contrast this picture with that of the Church in Germany. A report was released by the bishops’ conference last Friday showing the catastrophic decline in Mass attendance, and sacramental practice. This isn’t exactly surprising, but it is very sad. What was perhaps surprising to some was the statement put out by the head of the German bishops’ conference, which took the bleak report as a sign that the Church in Germany is on the right track, that she is a “strong force, whose message is heard and accepted.”

So much could be said here, and it is important that we don’t leave charity aside as we consider what message is being heard via the Church in Germany. There are undoubtedly a huge number of factors and a lot of history behind these statistics, none of which can be laid at any one person’s feet. But charity does not allow, much less require, intentional blindness.

We’ve heard quite a bit in the last few years from several (not all) German bishops about how, when the Church and the world disagree, it is the Church that must change to fit the world. When settled doctrine makes the world and worldly uncomfortable, the Church must, out of “compassion,” put doctrine aside and devise “pastoral practices” that are more welcoming to people who, understandably, don’t want to change their lifestyles.

In the World, Not of It

Saint Paul tells the early Church and us in Romans 12:

I appeal to you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. For by the grace given to me I bid every one among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith which God has assigned him.

And this, from Our Lord in John 15:

If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

This last passage comes from the famous “love discourse” of St. John’s Gospel. Jesus does not warn of the world’s hatred merely to provoke: He was telling His Apostles and us the cost of loving Him. Can you imagine being among the Apostles when Jesus was preparing them for what would be His greatest act of love, His passion and death on the cross? They were in the presence of God Himself, the Son who was already pouring out His Sacred Heart to His friends, a group who could not yet understand all that was going to happen.

Our Lord was not telling them to develop more “sophisticated” pastoral tools to make their message seem less offensive to a hostile culture. He was telling them to be ready to die for love, because they would be living for Love Himself.

God or Nothing

I’ve been using Cardinal Sarah’s book, God or Nothing, in some of our reflections with the priests and seminarians here in Dar es Salaam. One passage we have discussed comes from page 244:

God is truth; through his Son, he intends to draw us toward this truth. Attachment to and love of the truth are the most authentic, the most righteous, and the noblest attitude that a man could ever want on this earth. Conversely, the absence of truth is man’s real poverty, for the rejection of the truth paralyzes and falsifies his activity. Thus, the man who is not in the truth of God finds himself a prisoner of his own ego. Without truth, we are strangers to ourselves, cut off from the depths of our being, cut off from God, prisoners in our own darkness.

Where the Church insists that love be united with truth, the Church is alive. Where the Church is alive, families can flourish; chastity is joyfully lived, trumping the incessant push for contraception and abortion. The Church does not obsess over how to make the Gospel less offensive, she confidently preaches the truth of Christ in love. She won’t be given billions by the government when she does this; indeed, she will often be hated by worldly powers. But her churches will be full and she will have priests ready to live and die for Christ and His people.

A Church Alive

We raise these points here not to shame anyone or stoke controversy. Rather, we hope to challenge. Faithful Catholics gain nothing when a nation sees a near complete collapse of the faith, and we lose much-all of us. We need to pray unceasingly for conversions inside and outside the Church, and for those souls who, never having heard the truth, go looking for it elsewhere.

But let us learn! Where the Church conforms to the world, she may become wealthy and powerful, but she will hollow out from the inside. That’s not what she was made for. When she keeps her eyes on Christ and our eternal destiny, allowing His love through His word, the sacraments, and loving service to one another, to radiate into our present and transform lives today, she is alive and growing. She will be a sign of contradiction to the world, a beacon of truth and a target of attack. Her sign is the cross, upon which Love died and defeated death, giving eternal life to all who Love Him.

The archdiocese here has grown from 25 parishes to 101 in less than a quarter century. I wish you could see the Church alive here with me. I’ll share more of our mission going forward, and as always I am deeply grateful for your prayers and financial support that makes our mission possible.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Shenan J. Boquet

As the group prayed outside of the closed abortion mill for the last time, Archbishop Wenski thanked the pro-lifers, including those from VHI, for their help in shutting it down. Choice for Women was unfortunately well known among Latin Americans-women were regularly flown in from every South and Central American country to abort their children in Miami. Since there are laws protecting life in about half Latin American countries and laws restricting abortion in most of the other half, the closing of Choice for Women was a huge victory. Archbishop Wenski thanked God that, after nearly 15 years of rosaries and sidewalk counseling, Hispanic babies will not longer be murdered at this abortion clinic. – continue

Catholic charged with “hate crime”

July 22, 2016     

Dear Friend,

Jesus promised, “the truth will set you free.” Even so, enemies will “insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.”

And so it is in today’s culture. Speaking the truth about gender and human sexuality can make you a target of “hate crime” accusations. Even at a Catholic university!

That’s what reportedly happened last April to an employee at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in Los Angeles. She said that she told students that God created human beings male and female. The students accused her of a “hate crime.”

LMU suspended the employee during a week of university-sponsored events celebrating the “LGBT community”… but good news! She has been reinstated, albeit without apology from the university. Read more about it here.

It sure seems a fitting time to recall the disastrous “Land O’ Lakes Statement,” which spurred along the secularization of many Catholic universities. Marking the statement’s 49th anniversary this week, Cardinal Newman Society President Patrick Reilly published a must-read piece at National Catholic Register.

Reilly accuses the Land O’ Lakes signers of choosing pride and prestige over Catholic identity, resulting in “a voluntary exile from the once-lush gardens of truth and wisdom that had distinguished the world’s Catholic universities.”

Please read and share these articles, along with our other reports linked below. By helping us teach others about these issues, you play a critical role in our mission to promote and defend faithful Catholic education. Thank you, and may God bless you!

In Christ,

The Land O’ Lakes Statement Has Caused Devastation For 49 Years
by Patrick Reilly
In hindsight, what they did was appalling. But when several Catholic university leaders gathered in the summer of 1967 at a remote retreat in Land O’ Lakes, Wisconsin, did they fully anticipate the consequences of their vision for “modern” Catholic education? Hopefully not.

LMU Reinstates Employee Accused of ‘Hate Crime’ for Defending Church Teaching
by Adam Cassandra
The supposed “hate crime” in question involved a calm and reasoned defense of Church teaching on human sexuality by the employee in a conversation with students on campus during “Rainbow Week” — a celebration of the “LGBT community” sponsored by the University’s LGBT Student Services Office.

Mount Interim President Stresses Importance of Catholic Identity, Liberal Arts
by Adam Cassandra
