New Video: Planned Parenthood Doc Caught Admitting She Can Hide Profit From Selling Aborted Babies
The Center for Medical Progress released a supplemental video today that sheds more light on the profit Planned Parenthood makes associated with the ale of aborted babies and their body parts. Earlier this month, the pro-life organization released a video catching a Planned Parenthood official discussing how the abortion business sells fully intact aborted babies.
House Plans Vote on Bill to De-Fund Planned Parenthood, Which Sells Aborted Baby Body Parts
The House of Representatives is planning a vote on legislation that would de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business, which has been caught selling aborted babies and their body parts. The vote would follow one the Senate had weeks ago, which saw Senate Democrats filibuster and block legislation to revoke $550 million in taxpayer funding.
Federal Court Says Obama Cant Force March for Life to Obey Pro-Abortion HHS Mandate
The pro-life organization that puts on the March for Life on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade every year has won a legal victory in its case to stop the Obama administration from forcing it to obey the pro-abortion HHS mandate while its case against the mandate continues. The mandate compels religious groups to pay for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions.

Censored: Networks Havent Covered a Single Planned Parenthood Video in One Month
More fuel doesnt mean more fire at least when it comes to the medias coverage of Planned Parenthood. As more and more undercover footage surfaces, the networks dedicate less and less time to reporting on the horrific videos released by the Center for Medical Progress.

Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz Admits It Doesnt Do Mammograms at Any of Its Centers
In the course of evaluating a claim made by the Alliance Defending Freedom, a prolife group, PolitiFact Georgias crack investigators learned from a spokesperson for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America that the organization does not provide mammograms at any of its health centers. Since such facilities must be licensed by the Food and Drug Administration, no PPFA facility can legally perform a mammogram.

September 1, 2015
(Luk 6:22-23) Blessed shall you be when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you and shall reproach you and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. Be glad in that day and rejoice: for behold, your reward is great in heaven, For according to these things did their fathers to the prophets.
POPE FRANCIS: “Let it also be a stimulus to legislators and government leaders to guarantee religious freedom everywhere, and to the international community to put an end to the violence and oppression.”
CRISIS MAGAZINE: Faith-Based Negotiations with Faith-Based Fanatics
An Iraqi archbishop has said his faith has been challenged by the ongoing crisis in the Middle East.
Archbishop Bashar Warda of Irbil, Iraq, has admitted that while he would outwardly encourage the scores of Christians arriving in Irbil, in his heart he wrestles with why God has allowed such terrible things to happen.
“I don’t understand what he is doing when I look at what has happened in the region,” Archbishop Warda said.
“I quarrel with him every day.”
According to the Catholic Herald, he said the arguments take place within his intimate relationship with God and, with the help of grace, his relationship withstands even the unimaginable challenges that he has faced over the past year.
“Before going to sleep, I usually hand all my crises, wishes, thoughts and sadness to him, so I can at least have some rest,” Archbishop Warda told The Criterion, newspaper of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.
“The next day, I usually wake up with his providence that I would never dream about.”
More than 100,000 Christians and other persecuted minorities have sought refuge in Irbil in northern Iraq as they flee ISIS. With the threat of the extremist group now only 25 miles away, however, many Christians who fled to Irbil are moving on to refugee camps in Jordon, Lebanon and Turkey.
The Islamic State on Sunday, Aug. 30, launched a new campaign to destabilize the US Dollar with a 54-minute video tape, produced to the professional standards of New York Madison Avenue. for general distribution.
The ISIS tape calls on world markets to stop using the dollar and revert to the financial system of the medieval Muslim caliphates. It offers the following currency substitutes:
1. A dinar coin weighing 4.25 grams of 21-carat gold, worth $139 at current gold prices;
2. A silver “dirham” coin, currently in use in some Muslim countries such as Morocco, the United Arab Emirates, and parts of Libya, where ISIS is snapping up oil fields and installations.
3. Two copper coins known as “fulus,” which are handy currency for small transactions and daily use.
4. The jihadis also accept gold trinkets in lieu of coins.
The tape shows details of the coins’ production process at a plant in Mosul, ISIS’s Iraq headquarters. While the Islamists’ plan for war on the dollar may recall a bygone age in history, it is worth noting that just two years ago, Iran was paid for its oil sales to India in gold and gold ornaments, to beat the Western oil embargo.
Most financial circles have greeted the ISIS reach for world domination by the gold dinar as a stunt. They maintain that ISIS itself uses American dollars to buy arms on the black market and pay its fighters.
All the same, DEBKAfile’s counterterrorism experts disclose that the jihadis are deadly serious about their plan to wage a war of terror on the Western economy and financial system with four goals in view:
a) ISIS is not a run-of-the-mill terrorist organization, it is a movement seriously determined to forge an Islamic state and world order governed by its fundamentalist values.
b) Their territorial expansion and conquest of land has been accompanied by the pirating of natural resources, in their reach for affluence and control of the world’s economic levers.
ISIS’s consistent drive for terrain rich in oil, uranium, gold, silver and other natural resources, shows up in their grab for dominance in places like Libya, Iraq, Syria and the Sinai Peninsula. In Afghanistan, the Islamists have of late seized and ousted the Taliban from areas rich in precious metals.
c) The Islamic State is gaining a strong hand in the arms and oil black markets in the Middle East, Africa and parts of Europe. It is also gaining leverage for forcing traders to accept payment in gold dinars.
And there is no reason why they should refuse. Some of them already trade in bitcoins, a virtual currency with no national, economic or banking backing.
d) Like Al Qaeda in its heyday of the 90s, ISIS has many secret sympathizers among the rich and powerful of the Gulf emirates. If a hundred of them could be persuaded that the jihadist cause required them to start trading in gold dinars in their international business transactions, including the halawa (word of mouth system), Islamist gold would soon start infiltrating the world’s financial system.
The first response came Monday, Aug. 31, from the radical Hizb ut-Tahrir of Britain. It advised examining the benefits of returning to the old Gold Standard for resolving the sovereign debt crisis threatening the Eurozone, instead of “printing counterfeit money on keyboards.”
The ISIS video was not released merely as a provocative propaganda thrust against the likes of Wall Street and Western financiers. The jihadis seriously believe that financial terrorism can be a destructive weapon for destabilizing the US-dominated global economy at least as devastating as a raging horde of suicide bombers.
44. ‘A brother once came to Sisois on the mountain of Antony, and as they were talking he said to Sisois, ‘Have you reached the stature of Antony yet, abba?’ He answered, ‘If I had a single thought like Antony, I should leap toward heaven like a flame. But I know myself to be someone who can only with an effort keep his thoughts in check.’
|Mandating an Oath of Fidelity for Teachers and Administrators
It is the Clearer and Simpler Way …
Christendom college president Dr. Timothy O’Donnell led the entire faculty in a profession of faith and an oath of fidelity.
There has been much in the news lately about contracts for teachers in Catholic schools, and what can and cannot be in them. It’s disturbing to see situations such as in San Francisco, where there is something approaching outrage because Catholic school teachers are expected to uphold the Catholic faith in their teaching and personal example. Bishops and other leaders of Catholic schools have tried to come up with contracts which attempt to outline what is expected, and what is not to be tolerated. That whole effort seems to me to be causing a mess.
There is, I believe, an clearer and simpler way; namely, an Oath of Fidelity.
At The Atonement Academy our administrators and teachers have contracts, but mainly for the purpose of outlining salary and duties. It’s really more of an “agreement” between the individual and the institution which says “these are the duties and this is what will be paid for fulfilling those duties throughout the year.” These agreements are not the most important document for employment at the school.
The far more important document is the Oath of Fidelity. Each year the administrators and faculty of The Atonement Academy make a public oath of fidelity to the Catholic Church and her teaching. This is done during the Mass, before God and in the presence of the students. We require that our administrators and teachers be practicing Catholics, and the Oath an important way of promising before God to be faithful in living and teaching the Catholic faith.
This is the text we use:
+In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
I promise that I shall always preserve communion with the Catholic Church whether in the words I speak or in the way I act.
With great care and fidelity I shall carry out the responsibilities by which I am bound in relation both to the universal Church and to the particular Church in which I am called to exercise my service according to the requirements of the law. In carrying out my charge, which is committed to me in the name of the Church, I shall preserve the deposit of faith in its entirety, hand it on faithfully and make it shine forth. As a result, whatsoever teachings are contrary I shall shun.
I shall follow and foster the common discipline of the whole Church and shall look after the observance of all ecclesiastical laws, especially those which are contained in the Code of Canon Law.
With Christian obedience I shall associate myself with what is expressed by the holy shepherds as authentic doctors and teachers of the faith or established by them as the Church’s rulers. And I shall faithfully assist diocesan bishops so that apostolic activity, to be exercised by the mandate and in the name of the Church, is carried out in the communion of the same Church.
May God help me in this way, and the Holy Gospels of God which I touch with my hands.
+ + + + +
I’m asked frequently what is the “secret” of the success of our parish school. It’s really quite straightforward. The education we offer is of the highest intellectual calibre, imparted always in the context of the Catholic faith, and strengthened by the daily celebration of Holy Mass with the regular use of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
It really isn’t that hard.

The way back to true freedom!!
(c)Mary TV 2015
“Dear children! Also today I am calling you to be prayer. May prayer be for you the wings for an encounter with God. The world is in a moment of trial, because it forgot and abandoned God. Therefore you, little children, be those who seek and love God above all. I am with you and I am leading you to my Son, but you must say your ‘yes’ in the freedom of children of God. I intercede for you and I love you, little children, with an endless love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (August 25, 2015)
She is with us to help us. She prays for us. And she models this dignity to us. She made the choice at the Annunciation to say “yes” as a child of God. And she lived that “yes” all the way to Golgotha. Her “yes” has opened the way for our salvation. Our own “yes” to God, exercising our freedom to choose Him, will in some small way help others to find their own end, which is union with God.
