California teens forced to shill for Obamacare

The Los Angeles school system reportedly plans to use a state grant to promote ObamaCare, in part by teaching students to become “messengers” for the law.

Obama stands behind HHS contraception mandate

Posted: 29 Jun 2013 08:28 PM PDT

Despite strong resistance from religious organizations, the Obama administration said Friday that it was moving ahead with a rule forcing most employers to provide free insurance coverage of contraceptives and abortions for women, a decision that has touched off a legal and political battle likely to rage for another year.

“By offering this different option at a very difficult time in a woman’s life, I hope that we are giving more choice in what are often extraordinarily difficult circumstances,” the minister said, championing wider access for mothers seeking to murder their unborn children.

The picture above was hand drawn by Father Peter, who is one of the many Catholic priests Opus Bono cares for in prison. It is a thank you card, signed by 42 prisoners who have benefited from Father’s love, encouragement and spiritual guidance. Even in the “monastery of the prison cell”, incarcerated Catholic priests continue their ministerial priesthood to the poor and outcast, like themselves. At Father’s request, Opus Bono provided missals for all the prisoners engaged in Father’s weekly service as a prisoner to his brother prisoners.

 

“For I was in prison, and you visited me.” (Matt 25:37)

 

What better way to answer Jesus’ call to visit Him in prison, then by helping His Alter Christus’ incarcerated in the prisons of our world? When you become a Partner In Mission with Opus Bono Sacerdotii, you receive the same exact benefit of a Corporal Act of Mercy whenever we care for a priest in prison. You fulfill Jesus’ call to visit Him in prison! It is because we represent you when we care for priests in prison and, in fact, it is because of you that we are able to do it.

 

Pope Francis wrote to one of our priests in prison when he was Cardinal in Argentina.

Weekly prayer reflection for Summer
“You were called to freedom, brothers and sisters. But do not use this freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence; rather, serve one another through love.”
Galatians 5:13

June 30, 2013
13th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Friends,
In a very special way, citizens of the United States are called to freedom. In a few days we will celebrate that freedom and independence with the 4th of July weekend. We dare not take this freedom for granted. Glancing through newspapers will remind us of how many people live without freedom of religion, without legal systems that work for justice, and without opportunities for work and development.

We have been blessed. St. Paul challenges us to use our freedom to share and to serve one another through love. As Catholics pray on July 4th, the message and good news of Jesus Christ “lives on in our midst as our task for today and a promise for tomorrow.”

Father of all nations and ages, we recall the day when our country claimed its place among the family of nations; for what has been achieved we give You thanks, for the work that still remains we ask Your help…Grant that under Your providence our country may share Your blessings with all the peoples of the earth. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen

Why Wendy Davis isn’t a Hero

Posted: 28 Jun 2013 08:43 PM PDT

If you glance around the pro-abortion media or blogosphere, you’ll see glowing reviews of Wendy Davis for her 13-hour filibuster of Texas’ SB5. This bill would ban abortions after 20 weeks and increase safety regulations for abortion clinics, which for pro-aborts, is the worst thing ever.

Following on yesterday’s 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that Hobby Lobby can continue its lawsuit against the Obama administration’s contraception mandate on religious grounds, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma ruled today that the federal government must halt all enforcement of the mandate (and related financial penalties) against the Christian-based company.

Senegal Cheers Its President for Standing Up to Obama on Same-Sex ‘Marriage’

While Mr. Obama was generally welcomed here during his brief visit, his praise for the United States Supreme Court decision on gay couples was not.

You are Really God’s Little Child

My poor child, how short this life on earth is!  It is always an unfinished symphony.  Do you realize your home is elsewhere?  Why do you continue to cling to the things of the earth?  The other life is tomorrow.  Are you not longing to see Me?  To know Me better?  Ask Me for this desire.  I can give you everything you lack.  You don’t ask.  Above all do not be afraid of wearying Me or annoying Me.  You are my little child.  Nothing that concerns you ever tires Me….Don’t be afraid then.  Just ask.  Yearn for Me and thank Love.  Call yourself: God’s little child…it will give you a new feeling.

As our country slides deeper into a moral abyss, many stand by either gaping at these changes or passively watching them happen. Neither of these things is effective in teaching morality or the truths of the Catholic Church. To effect change, we must first understand why these things are happening. Today’s commentary addresses the tumult and the immorality our society is experiencing, and we must listen well. The future of marriage, of family, and of our society depends upon us.
