  • The election is over but history is put on hold as the counting continues. How effective were the bishops in convincing Catholics what "vote your conscience" means? The sad results will shock you. See SYMPHONY OF SUFFERING below plus CATHOLIC PewPOINT and VIEW FROM THE PEW and PRO-LIFE PRESCRIPTIONS to better understand what the Church needs to do in America to uphold the Sanctity of Life!

The Polls tried to predict the outcome, the media tried to ramrod through their liberal, pro-abort candidate, but it's not over yet. We continue to pray for a miracle for the Sanctity of Life! The Blessed Mother said 'yes'; we need to give a resounding 'yes' and follow through! Countless lives and souls hang in the balance!

    Symphony of SufferingCyndi Cain    In her eighteenth installment, Cyndi Cain is inspired to write about the questions still unanswered in the chaotic aftermath of this election and how the various political ploys are not only unethical but cry out to God for justice. While the process is dragged through the courts, Cyndi brings up an interesting scenario to those Catholics who defied Church teaching and voted for the pro-abortion Democratic candidate Al Gore. She reminds us that even though your vote is signed, sealed and delivered, you still have to account for how you voted and why to God. She asks those who would encourage the culture of death to consider what might have happened had the Blessed Virgin Mary refused the Archangel Gabriel. For her column, What if the Blessed Mother had said 'No!'?!? , see SYMPHONY OF SUFFERING.

    Events that happened Today in Church History

    Cardinal Joseph BerndinCardinal Francis George, OMI    Today is the 4th anniversary of the death of Cardinal Joseph Bernardin who was the Archbishop of Chicago and, to many the leader of the liberal movement in the United States. But to label him merely as one on the left would not be fair to the spirituality and sincerity of the man who did so much good despite his leanings toward modernism. Many Chicagoans thought he could not be replaced, but His Holiness Pope John Paul II knew otherwise and appointed the solid Oblate of Mary Immaculate Bishop Cardinal Francis E. George, OMI. Since his installation he has taken charge and won over many hard hearts through his gentle, but firm manner.

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenWe are responsible for our own woes

       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".

      " By constantly seeking pleasure of self, the tone has been ruined. So many of our cares today are of our own making. Never before were there so many woes manufactured by our own hands. 'Made by me and made within' could be stampted on most of the trials and difficulties that people endure. God gives us the strength to bear the sorrows of our own. Those who make their own trials are also those who never call upon Him for aid; those who have sorrows laid on them by God always do."

       The elections are over, but the battle for life is not. We cannot give up the fight. Please continue to pray for the Sanctity of Life and pray for those pro-abort candidates who were elected that they will have a conversion of heart and recognize the evil of their ways. Remember, nothing is impossible with God. We encourage you to go to the Pro-Life links below to keep up to date on the great battle between life and death - the Sanctity of Life vs. the culture of death led by pro-abort candidates and those who would advance murder, immorality, sodomy, perjury, etc.
