Pro-Life Prescriptions:


The Pro-Aborts' creed:
1973 - 2000
"We pledge allegiance to the flag of prosperity and perdition through the dagger of deceit"
    ...the same demonic dagger that has ripped over 40 million unborns from the womb! Their platform is a bill of goods that is bad, really, really bad for souls everywhere!

      In today's issue Dr. Frank Joseph doesn't mince words in describing the modus operandi of the Democratic Party in trying to sell a platform to a gullible nation. It is a bill of goods that is bad, really, really bad as in sinful with a capital "S"...as in abortion with the scarlet letter "A." He asks how is this method of manslaughter any different than Hitler's edict to eliminate those who didn't measure up to his concept of what society should be. While such an analogy may shock some, consider the shock that the Nazis killed only 1/6th of the amount murdered through abortion over the past 27 years. Dr. Frank points out that even one life taken out of selfishness and greed is a shock, but the staggering number of over 40 million unborn souls, which doesn't even take into consideration the millions who never even had a chance through the horrific abortion pill or various methods of contraception, cries out to Heaven for vengeance. Staying clear of political issues and emphasizing the moral issues so apparent in this presidential election, Dr. Joseph reminds all of Almighty God's pledge as the Apostle Saint Paul states in Romans 12: 19, Vengeance is Mine; I will repay, says the Lord." He also reemphasizes God's words in Exodus 20: 13, "Thou shalt not kill." For Dr. Joseph's column The Democratic Party has learned well from Hitler, see Pro-Life Prescriptions: LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!

Events that happened Today in Church History

Pope Clement IVPope Gregory XPope Honorius IV    Today we commemorate the 715th anniversary of the death of Saint Philip Benizi, Confessor, Servite Prior and Superior General who might have succeeded Pope Clement IV in 1265, but felt unworthy and retreated out of the public light to pray, not emerging until the Holy Abbot Hildebrand was chosen as Clement's successor and took the name Pope Gregory X who today is blessed. St. Benizi was a great orator and administrator as provincial of his Order, who, in the autumn of his life, withdrew from the active ministry to a more contemplative life of prayer and solitude. He died this day in 1285 during the pontificate of Pope Honorius IV, the thirteenth Pontiff during St. Philip's lifetime. See MILLENNIUM MILESTONES AND MEMORIES


Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenOur greatest fear should be sin!

   They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind, one of the ways this late luminary did so much to evangelize the faith. Because of the urgency of the times and because few there are today who possess the wisdom, simplicity and insight than the late Archbishop who touched millions, we are bringing you daily gems from his writings. The good bishop makes it so simple that we have dubbed this daily series: "SIMPLY SHEEN".

    "It is our loves and desires that determine our pains. If our supreme love is the pleasure of the body, then our greatest pain is loss of health; if our supreme love is wealth, then our deepest worry is insecurity; and if our supreme love is God, then our greatest fear has to be sin."
