  • "D" Day is tomorrow. We urge you to put your vote where your heart is and vote for life! See CATHOLIC PewPOINT

  • For those still struggling with who would be best for America, we invite you to read George W. Bush's personal testimony to Christ at My Conversion of Heart. Sadly, Al Gore couldn't be bothered to provide his Christian witness.
  • Tomorrow millions of Americans will go to the polls. Their vote will determine the future course of America. Do you want to be responsible for more deaths or will you vote to bring America back to God? Only you can answer that!
        In this issue Pat Ludwa focuses on tomorrow's elections nationwide as he discusses issues and candidates from a personal point of view, always keeping first and foremost what the Church teaches. His conclusions are evident but it is the rationale he uses that hopefully will wake many lukewarm Catholics to realize how important their "Life Vote" will be for the future course of America. He outlines the facts and lets them speak for themselves as he reads between the lines of political pundits who say one thing and do another. He reminds us that there is only one Who you can truly trust and He was the greatest "Politician" of them all; He was the one Who reminds us that the buck does indeed stop with us for we are responsible for our actions and "as you did it for one of these, the least of My little ones, you did it for Me" (Matthew 25: 40). Your vote is vital and it is one of the rights given to all responsible American citizens who, as our Constitution declares, are entitled to the "inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." With life being snuffed out by those who have taken on God's sole role, liberties are at stake not to mention life and when that happens there's not much pursuit of happiness. For Pat's column How your vote will change the face of America for better or for worse see VIEW FROM THE PEW

      Today is Day 9 - the Final Day of the Countdown Novena to the Election! Your prayers are vital! We recommend at least a decade a day and a Chaplet of Divine Mercy. If you can say a Rosary a day in hopes of a miracle that America can return to God through this election, that's even better! It's between you and God. Remember, nothing is impossible with Him!
    1 DAY
    to Defend Life
    and pray that there will be
    No more Blood and Gore!!

       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 immorality, sodomy, perjury, etc. We refer you to our HOMEPORT ENTRY PAGE where you will find a typograph of a chalice, a chalice overflowing with the innocent blood of the aborted babies nearing 40 to 50 million. Enough is enough! The story and our purpose is outlined in this typograph and for more information and why we will not give up, see DEFEND LIFE Pray and urge others to VOTE FOR LIFE!

    Also we recommend the following excellent sites whose main purpose is the Sanctity of Life

    Pro-Life Infonet and Priests For Life and People of Life and Human Life International and
    American Life League and National Right to Life and Oblates of Mary Immaculate Life Issues

    Pro-Life Prescriptions:

    Pope John Paul II speaks out:

    "If you want equal justice for all and true freedom and lasting peace, then, America, defend life."

    (World Youth Days, Denver, 1993)

    "In the case of an intrinsically unjust law, such as a law permitting abortion or euthanasia, it is therefore never licit to obey it, or to 'take part in a propaganda campaign in favor of such a law, or vote for it'."

    ("The Gospel of Life" p. 73, 1995)

    AP photos above taken of George W. Bush on the left and Al Gore waving above clearly show God's choice for president of the United States through His wonders of nature that say more than any spinmeister could. The Culture of Life is blessed with a rainbow of graces. While stormclouds of doubt and despair loom for those who would push for the Culture of Death!

    Think of all the souls who have been aborted and you'll realize why Our Lord and Our Lady weep for those who never had a chance. We do with our vote!

    With the election tomorrow, we bring you a composite of excellent articles by Dr. Frank Joseph that should convince you once and for all that your only choice is to vote Pro-Life! Below are a selection of his best and most recent columns pertinent for setting your conscience at ease and voting out the culture of death regime that has ruled in the White House for these past eight, long, bloody years.

    Catholics can make the difference!
    Say "Yes" to Life through your Vote!

      Because tomorrow is election day, we bring you Dr. Frank Joseph's columns today instead of Wednesday in order to remind all Catholics that their vote is all about accountability, which counts not just with their conscience but, in the greater picture, with their Creator. The question is about creation - His creation of man. which modern man wants to snuff out through the selfish, horrific and evil sin of abortion. Dr. Frank points out what the Church says both in Sacred Scripture and Canon Law. The twelve columns below show this distinctly:

    There definitely is a good candidate and a bad candidate and he does not hesitate to share with the readers who Catholics cannot vote for. They can't for the sake of their own souls, as well as the souls of countless unborns who might never get the chance to breathe life as we do today because of the selfish, narrow-minded votes of those who stubbornly or stupidly voted for a candidate who pledges to continue the culture of death. He clearly shows that it is no longer a matter of choice or party politics, but a matter of life and death! It is no longer a political issue, but a moral issue that we will be held accountable for before God.

    "But when thou givest a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind; and blessed shalt thou be, because they have nothing to repay thee with; for thou shalt be repaid at the resurrection of the just."

    Events that happened Today in Church History

    Pope Innocent VII    Today is the 594th anniversary of the death of Pope Innocent VII, the 204th in the line of Peter. Born in Sulmona, Italy, as Cosma de' Migliorati, he was elevated to the throne of Peter by his peers in the Conclave on November 11, 1404. Because his pontificate was just under two years he really didn't accomplish much. One reason was his weak character which prevented him from tackling the important issues at hand including resolving the schism and the dire straits the Papal States were in. His only claim to fame was that, as a man who appreciated the arts and sciences, he enlarged the faculties of Greek and Medicine in key pontifical universities.

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenTo him who has been given much, much will be expected

       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".

      "Scripture bids us to be wise and 'correctly interpret the word of truth' (2 Timothy 2: 15). Humility moderates our estimate of what we know and will remind us that God gave to the wise more talents than others and more opportunities for developing those talents. But of him who has received much, much also will be expected. The intellectual leader has a tremendous responsibility thrust upon him and woe to him if he uses his office of teaching to lead the young into error and conceit."
