For today’s feast on the traditional calendar, the Queenship of Mary, a previous comment from Archbishop Dennis Schnurr on devotion to Our Lady:
“We hold the Blessed Mother in such great esteem because of her great faith and because she played a key role in our redemption. Authentic Marian devotion is not a diversion; rather, it leads us to Jesus… I believe our faith lacks fullness if there is not an important place for the Blessed Mother in our prayer.”

Brian Kemper, Director of Youth Outreach for Priests for Life is helping organize the White Rose Pro-life Summer Project that will target the infamous Dr. Martin Haskell abortion clinic in the Dayton suburb of Kettering, Ohio.  This is the sole remaining abortion clinic in the Miami Valley.  The  name White Rose  comes from a coalition of young people in Nazi Germany who dedicated themselves to educate Germans about the truth of the Nazi Holocaust.   The White Rose Pro-Life Summer Project will:

…saturate Dayton, OH and the surrounding area with the message of life as we reveal the truth that abortion is the killing of innocent children.

We will have a peaceful, prayerful presence in front of Martin Haskell’s abortion clinic in Kettering, OH (a suburb of Dayton) every day. We will be bringing our pro-life witness, literature distribution and street ministry to events around the city, including baseball games, conventions and more…

The White Rose Pro-life Summer Project will run from June 1 – July 31, 2012 and you can come for any amount of time you choose. Please e-mail bryankemper@standtrue.com or call Bryan at 540-538-2581 for more information on joining us.

Host Housing – If you live near or in Dayton, OH and would like to host a White Rose Student for part of the summer you can e-mail us at info@standtrue.com

Please visit this group’s webpage (http://bryankemper.com/whiterose/) for more information and if possible, come up to Dayton and join this holy effort.

Hint: The Catholic Church is not the answer to any of them.

1) Contraception is the one sin for which the penalty is national death; a sin for which there is no atonement.

2) The abandonment of the reproductive function is the common feature of all sexual perversions. We actually describe a sexual activity as perverse if it has given up the aim of reproduction and pursues the attainment of pleasure as an aim independent of it.

3) “Contraceptive methods are like putting a premium on vice. They make men and women reckless. Nature is relentless and will have full revenge for any such violation of her laws…If contraceptive methods become the order of the day nothing but moral degradation can be the result. As it is, man has sufficiently degraded woman for his lust, and contraception, no matter how well-meaning the advocates may be, will still further degrade her.”

4) “By accepting contraception, the world is trying …to form a civilized but non-Christian, mentality. The experiment will fail; but we must be very patient in awaiting its collapse; meanwhile redeeming the time so that the Faith may be preserved alive through the dark ages before us; to renew and rebuild civilization and save the world from suicide.”

Prior to 1930 all of Christendom condemned the use of contraception as an evil. But, then in 1930 the Anglican Church decreed that the use of contraception was permissible when the life of the mother was in danger. What periodical ridiculed that decision? Hint: It is still published today.

5) “Carried to its logical conclusions, (contraceptives)…would sound the death knell of marriage as a holy institution by establishing degrading practices which would encourage indiscriminate immorality: The suggestion that the use of legalized contraceptives would be ‘careful and restrained’ is preposterous.”

Who Wears the Harness? Who Holds its Reins?

05/25/2012 @ 7:30am

From President Obama’s campaign kickoff speech, Columbus, Ohio, May 5, 2012:  ”This country is at its best when we harness the God-given talents of every individual….”

Warning, Americans: For those not raised in farm country, “harness” is more than a verb implying a general, cooperative marshaling of talent.

A harness is a set of fetters strapped to a beast of burden.  Some master at the other end holds the reins that control the beast.  The master uses the harness to make the beast work.  If the beast is obstinate, the master whips the beast, and uses food and water to compel the beast’s passive cooperation.

Analyze this clause, spoken by the president: “…we harness the God-given talents of every individual….”

Who, do you think he means as “we?”

You Democrats out there immediately want to react, thinking that “we” are all of us.  But, Democrat readers, all of us do not have the power to harness anyone or anything.  The masters holding the reins are the people who make, administer, and enforce the laws and regulations.  And they know it.

Who do you think wears this harness, the one our president imagines using?  Remember: this is his word.

Now, imagine a different way of thinking—in which no one presumes either to need the harness, or to have the power to strap anyone into it.  Imagine a country where people chose how they exercised their God-given talents free of the straps, buckles, reins, and whips of the master.

Revise the president’s sentence, and contrast his words with these: “The country is at its best when every citizen lives, works, rests, spends and saves as his conscience and his God guide him.”

And, do not think for a single second that the president’s use of the word “harness” was a mere, inconsequential, careless choice.  Some speech writer selected that word because that is how the speech writer—and the president—think.

I do not want to be “harnessed” by my government to do work that President Obama and his party dictate, reward, punish, regulate, penalize, or tax.

That word chosen by the president speaks volumes about the difference between two ways of thinking about America.

A friend alerts me to a new facebook page, Solidarity for Sisters, which is some sort of protest of the Holy See’s recent actions to bring women religious orders into line with Church teaching. (Presumably, the gray-haired ladies in t-shirts are the sisters.)

Its posts read like something for a political cause, which is more or less what it is.

Some of you may long for an “unlike” button after visiting.

BATTLE SAINT

quote from Hot Air blog about Battle Saint and a video

She calls herself a ‘combat mom’; a local mother who, like so many families, tries hard to stay connected to loved ones serving in the US armed forces. Although separated by the miles, Cynthia LeMay stays connected with a small token — a simple bracelet designed to offer support from home and above.

The mother of two sons who have served in the military is no stranger at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta. She’s often there passing out her Battle Saint bracelets.

“My son has been wearing it since he went over,” LeMay told a soldier at the airport who was getting ready to depart for his assignment.

The inspiration for the wooden bracelets came after a family gathering two years ago.

“I knew I wanted to do something to make a difference,” LeMay said.

She creates and hands out these wooden bracelets to the troops she meets at the airport getting ready to go overseas. (You can order some at her web site if you wish.) Each one has the pictures of a number of Saints on it, all specifically selected for their significance in protecting warriors going into harm’s way. The full list can be found here, but they include:

  • St Barbara, known as the patron saint of artillerymen, military engineers and those who work with explosives.
  • St Pio of Pietrelcina, known as a symbol of hope to people in the aftermath of WW1.
  • St Michael the Archangel
  • St. Martin of Tours, known as the patron saint of soldiers, chaplains, quartermasters and the cavalry.
  • St Philip Neri, known as the patron saint of the Special Forces.
  • Joan of Arc
  • St Sebastain, known as the patron saint of archers, athletes and soldiers
