Daily Catholic Quote from Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.” (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta; National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C, February 5, 1994) If you liked this quote, please share it with your friends and family [...]

Difficulties with Defending Life

Forget parachuting or haunted houses for chills.  If you want scary, try walking into a pro-choice demonstration and saying a few “Our Fathers.”  Last spring, some friends and I crashed a rally advocating for the right to abort babies. I wrote an article about it, “Crashing an Abortion Rally,” and received some nasty comments.  But that was nothing compared to [...]

Daily Catholic Quote from Blessed John Paul II

“To claim the right to abortion, infanticide and euthanasia, and to recognize that right in law, means to attribute to human freedom a perverse and evil significance: that of an absolute power over others and against others. This is the death of true freedom.” (Blessed John Paul II; The Gospel of Life, 20) October 22 — Optional Memorial of Blessed [...]

Daily Catholic Quote from Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

“Many people are concerned with children of India, with the children of Africa where quite a few die of hunger, and so on. Many people are also concerned about the violence in this great country of the United States. These concerns are very good. But often these same people are not concerned with the millions being killed by the deliberate [...]

A Real March for Life Demands We March to the Beat of a Different Drummer

Some pro-lifers that will arrive in Washington D.C. on January 22 for the March for Life, don’t understand that in spite of their passion for the unborn, they are part of the culture that brings us the tragedy of abortion.  Hundreds of thousands will come to protest the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court decision that has [...]

Why Did the Holy Innocents Have to Die?

On the fourth day of our Christmas celebration, the Church reminds us that not everyone is joyful; that there exist those who are not of goodwill who do not wish to receive the season’s glad tidings. Today is the Feast of the Holy Innocents in which the Church recalls and honors those baby boys whose lives were taken in a [...]

“I will honor Christ in my heart and try to be authentically Catholic all the year.”

One of the most famous Christmas quotes of all time is this one from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens: “I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” Reflecting on this quote has made me think about resolutions a little differently for 2014.  I would like you to join me in a different [...]

Give the Gift of Yourself

It was just recently that I realized something about myself: I like old people. I think it all began back when I was about six. Or maybe I was seven. Regardless of my age, I remember distinctly liking my great grandmother. For one thing, she made waffles that did not go in the toaster. For another, she was always happy [...]
