Pro-Life Prescriptions:


Dr. Frank asks mothers-to-be to consider God's plan for them as mothers A mother who aborts her own flesh and blood will never know the overwhelming joy of holding her baby in her arms, never know what life offers because she took a life! Please, weigh the pros and cons because Pro-Life far, far outweighs any temporal advantage of the culture of death!

      In today's issue Dr. Frank Joseph addresses mothers-to-be, especially those who might not be if they persist in aborting their babies. He entreats them to think and pray over this life-and-death decision very sincerely and to consider all the circumstances she would find herself in if she gives in to her base instincts to kill her own flesh and blood. He lays out the grave disadvantages of abortion both for her physical and mental welfare, as well as spiritual state. He shows where the pangs of childbirth are miniscule and the rewards unending compared to the pains of abortion and the unending regret and guilt she will have to live with for all eternity. He invites these mothers-to-be to strongly consider carrying their babies to completion for the sake of their offspring and the sake of their own welfare, spiritually, mentally and physically for the percentage of problems greatly escalate as a result of having an abortion compared to childbirth. Life is the only answer. For Dr. Joseph's column Open Letter to all Mothers-to-be who are contemplating an abortion , see Pro-Life Prescriptions: LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!

    Events that happened Today in Church History

    Blessed Pope John XXIIIAnniversary of the Opening of Vatican Two    Today is the 38th anniversary of the beginning of the Second Vatican Council, called by Blessed Pope John XXIII in a sweeping move unexpected by most of the cardinals who elected him. It was his Papal Bull Humanae Salutis that called the 21st Ecumenical Council which would last three years, being closed by Pope Paul VI on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception in 1965. This Vatican II Council was good and the aggioriomento was needed for the Church had become staid. The Holy Spirit was indeed present, but dissidents within the Church, those who had wanted to go further, decided they would enact whatever they wanted and have Vatican II to blame. Since then this misunderstood Council has taken a terrible beating as countless progressives quote Vatican II. The only problem, no one can find their quotes, because it wasn't what the Council Fathers decreed. Slowly, but surely, our present Holy Father John Paul II is reining in the radicals who openly disobey.

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenThe practicality of truth

       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".

      " Speculative truth is very easy to accept, e.g., London is the capital of England. The reason is because it does not in any way involve a change in our conduct. It makes no practical difference to our lives. But the truth of morality, such as purity, justice and prudence and charity are not so easy for acceptance, because they often demand a revolution in our behavior. That is why men are more willing to accept objections against a principle of morality than against a theory of science. Our Divine Lord referred to the difficulty of accepting practical truths when He said: 'You will not come to Me because your lives are evil' (cf. John 5: 19-47). "
