Once a woman has an abortion she is scarred for more ways than one!

The serpents of sin may look inviting to pro-abort physicians' but they'll feel the deadly venom because their caduceus is in a state of caducity! These caddies of death are totally out of cadence with God's Will.

  Today, Dr. Frank Joseph lays out clear, unmitigated proof that therapeutic abortion is really malhealth abortion that has and will result in a myriad of ills and complications for the women and for the butchers who accommodate their intent to kill the human being in their womb. The consequences are also finite as well as infinite for millions of dollars in lawsuits result from their lack of ethics...and rightly so. It's only fair that any doctor who is willing to kill a child in the womb should be sued and put out of business. The caduceus is sacred, keep the deadly snakes away. The important thing is for these physicians, who have taken the oath of Hippocrates, to remember that only God can take a life and these doctors are not God! To think otherwise is to buy into another serpent whose venom will condemn one forever. For Dr/ Frank's technical, but eye-opening column today Abortions and Subsequent Premature Births see PRO LIFE PRESCRIPTIONS

How close is the Vatican and SSPX to reconciliation?

We take you inside the Vatican with the editor of Inside the Vatican in enlightening readers further on the on-going talks between the Holy See and the Lefebvrists

  Because of what is occurring in Rome this month behind the scenes could have such a hopeful effect for orthodoxy in America, we want to keep you alerted to the latest developments. These on-going talks between Rome and the Society of St. Pius X can help immensely in slowing the runaway train of the amchurch that is taking so many of the faithful down a track that leads farther away from true Roman Catholic doctrine. For that reason alone loyal Catholics are looking with faith, hope and love toward a reconciliation. Today we present some insight from Robert Moynihan, the editor of "Inside the Vatican" magazine. For more, see Exspectans exspectavibus Ecclesia Dei

Bishop Moynihan: We implore you to call New York Congressman Sherwood Boehlert to task for his unyielding pro-abortion stance.

Cardinal McCarrickBishop Moynihan   Today's "Herod's Hero" is the Republican Congressman from New York, the Honorable Sherwood L. Boehlert. There's nothing honorable about how he, as a 'Catholic,' has promoted the culture of death. We call on him to repent and for his shepherd in Syracuse Bishop James M. Moynihan, along with Boehlert's ruling prelate in Washington D.C. Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, to issue the ultimatum of the "Bell, Book, and Candle" if he will not hear even the Church. We beg of the Bishops, to stand up for the Roman Catholic Church, to exact the discipline all Catholics are expected to follow. By Boehlert's pro-abortion record during his 10 terms in office he has gone against his own Party and turned away from God by showing a disdain for Catholic doctrine and being a willing accomplice to satan. We implore him to amend his ways, to turn away from embracing the pro-abort stance with no mercy for the lives of millions of unborn. For another betrayer who seeks to perpetuate the culture of death and slay the innocents, see HEROD'S HEROES

It is True!!!

    Archpriest of St. Peter's Basilica Cardinal Virgilio Noe confirms Blessed John XXIII's body is indeed incorrupt!
   YES! Following up our story in these pages yesterday, the Vicar General of Vatican City State and the President of the Fabric of St. Peter Cardinal Virgilio Noe has confirmed that Blessed Pope John XXIII's body is indeed incorrupt. This discovery was made on January 16 when his body was interred from his tomb in the crypt below St. Peter's in order to prepare it to be moved to the main level later this year and be given more prominence.

TVC Chairman calls for Bush to bring honor back to the Military by reinstating ban on gays

Church teaching past and present affirms need to stand against homosexual agenda in all phases of life in upholding the intended nature of man for God's sake

   The Reverend Louis Sheldon, chairman of Traditional Values Coalition is calling on President George W. Bush to reinstate the ban of gays in the military and he provides cases that cry for this. In addition, Gary Morella supplements Sheldon's call with documentation from the Church which calls for all Catholics to beware of the tolerance factor that has been so twisted as to condone sin. The Church reaffirms that while we can in no way tolerate violence against sinners, neither can we tolerate the sin. For more, see USA News

Calgary Bishop not afraid to go after pro-abort politicians

   Canadian Bishop Fred Henry, Bishop of the Diocese of Calgary is beginning to become a household name for pro-lifers across Canada with a recent wave of articles and media interviews taking politicians to task over the sanctity of human life. His most recent defence of the unborn came in his Sun column on Sunday where he smashes the argument frequented by politicians: "We should not legislate or impose our morality on others."

      First Reading: Isaiah 49: 8-15
      Psalms: Psalm 145: 8-9, 13-14, 17-18
      Gospel Reading: John 5: 17-30

"Do not wonder at this, for the hour is coming in which all who are in the tombs shall hear the voice of the Son of God. And they who have done good shall come forth unto resurrection of life; but they who have done evil unto resurrection of judgment."    John 5: 28-39

The Voice of the Disciple

Blush, then, thou slothful servant, who are ever complaining, because they are more ready to labor for death than thou art for life. They rejoice more in running after vanity than thou after truth. They, in truth, are oft times disappointed of their hope; but My promise deceives no man, nor sends him away empty who trusts in Me.

From Book III, Chapter III of "Imitation of Christ" by Thomas a Kempis.

Death of the Pope who prompted an opera by Verdi

   Today is the 716th commemoration of the death of Pope Martin IV, 189th successor of Peter, who was noted for the uprising of the Sicilian Vespers outbreak during his regime which prompted Giuseppe Verdi to compose an opera about the event. He was elected on February 22, 1281. During his four year pontificate he strove to unite in the bonds of charity the kings and lords of the time.

If we don't know about something we can't get passionate about it!

    "Passion cannot operate unless we have an idea about something. A woman will not 'get mad' at a bargain counter, unless she knows that someone is getting the better selection. We speak of people becoming 'enthused' about some idea - and an idea is knowledg. No one undergoes the passion of sadness without first having a knowledge of a loss or a disaster."

Monthly Medjugorje Message for March 2001

"Dear children! Also today I call you to open yourselves to prayer. Little children, you live in a time in which God gives great graces but you do not know how to make good use of them. You are concerned about everything else, but the least for the soul and spiritual life. Awaken from the tired sleep of your soul and say yes to God with all your strength. Decide for conversion and holiness. I am with you, little children, and I call you to perfection of your soul and of everything you do. Thank you for having responded to my call."
