  • 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 PRO-LIFE PRESCRIPTIONS below plus CATHOLIC PewPOINT and VIEW FROM THE PEW and SYMPHONY OF SUFFERING to better understand what the Church needs to do in America to uphold the Sanctity of Life!
Pro-Life Prescriptions:

Illinois Michigan Pennsylvania New York New Jersey Massachusetts
FloridaThe state of confusion was caused by altered states populated by Catholics who alter Church teaching to fit their agenda and, in so doing, created the closest election in American history, not to mention a malaise in the Church in America that will linger long after!

      In today's issue Dr. Frank Joseph joins the millions of Americans who are just as puzzled by the election last week and all the problems in Florida. But it wouldn't have come to that if Catholics had voted in accord with the teachings of their faith. He still incredulously cannot fathom why so many Catholics voted for a definite pro-abort presidential candidate. He asks how in God's good name could they ever have voted for a person who defies Church teaching and has a track record of being anti-Catholic, not to mention his strong stance on sodomy and association with the immoral Clinton regime. He sadly deduces that it had to be that many Catholics aren't really "Catholic" at all, but mere statistics who belong to the Catholic Church but contribute nothing towards living their faith. If he is wrong, it needs to be proved for the statistics of the Catholic vote betray where the hearts and faith of many Catholics in the east and Western Great Lakes region truly are. Statistics don't lie and they can rationalize all they want. If a Catholic voted for a pro-abort then they're going to have to account for their disobedience to Church teaching before God for Jesus said in Matthew 16: 19, "...and whatever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in Heaven..." For Dr. Joseph's column When it comes to voting Catholics and conscience just don't seem to mix! see Pro-Life Prescriptions: LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!

    Events that happened Today in Church History

    Pope Nicholas V    Today is the 603rd anniversary of the birth of Pope Nicholas V in 1397. He was born in Svizzera, Italy as Tommaso Parentucelli and would become the 202nd successor of Peter on March 19, 1447. It was Nicholas who would begin construction on the present St. Peter's complex plus establish the Vatican Library. During the 8 years of his pontificate, Nicholas celebrated the sixth holy year in 1450 and restored the political order in England and France as well as aiding Spain in ridding the country of the Saracen threat. He would die on March 24, 1455. For other events that happened this day in Church History, see MILLENNIUM MILESTONES AND MEMORIES

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenThose who trust in God will avoid the venom of the serpent
       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".

      "The serpents that sting us are from within and not without, we carry them in our own bosom - this is the tragedy. When the earthy treasures are swept away, those who trust in God have everything left."

       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.
