The title "The Triumph of Will and Grace" is appropriate when you consider the contrast between God's Holy Will and the Graces He imparts to those who strive to obey His Commandments as opposed to the horrendous, blasphemous television sitcom "Will & Grace," which is a microcosm of all that is wrong with America and its moral culture. The Former is of Triumph that narrowly stretches toward Heaven, the latter is a total, abject failure that is widely praised by those who have already punched their one-way ticket to perdition. Do you want to follow them?
Thanks to the ambitious plans of a group in Buffalo, New York, seat of the culture of death, they hope to restore moral conscience by establishing a shrine to the Protectress of the Unborn, none other than the Blessed Mother of God - our Heavenly Mother. We know from Fatima that in the end her Immaculate Heart will triumph as she promised and as referenced in Genesis 3: 15 and Apocalypse 12: 1-2.
The last scriptural reference is interesting. Without getting into exegesis, verse 2 says, "And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered." Now the Douay-Rheims Bible with the Haydock Catholic commentary points out that this signifies
"that the Church, even in the time of persecutions, brought forth children to Christ. Wi. - It likewise signifies the difficulties which obstructed the first propagation of Christianity." It likewise could very well signify the great mystical pain Our Lady suffers during these terrible times of persecution. For indeed, never in the period of history has there been greater mass murder than today through the terrible act of abortion. With every abortion/murder a child of God is eliminated from ever having a free will as God so deigned.
And now, to bring forth more children to Christ through Mary, to make all aware of the Tabernacle of Our Lord and the Gateway to the Son of God, a dedicated group in Buffalo, New York have taken on a daunting task that seeks to emphasize God's Will and Graces that are so bountiful if only we obey His commandments, beginning with the 5th and 6th commandments; two that are so widely committed in tandem and which have caused the countless infanticide of the unborn. The killing of over 42 million unborn children since the infamous Supreme
Court decision (Roe Vs Wade) in 1973. And it will forever be remembered by
the entire world thanks to the City of Buffalo.
Therefore, before children become extinct much like the vast herds of bison that once roamed this great land, it is necessary to preserve what we have left and push the pendulum back towards moral law and order. What better place to return to the scene of the crime to right the wrongs (though that could never be fully done considering the horrible holocaust of the womb over the past 29 plus years!) than this city which is predominantly Catholic on the northeastern banks of Lake Erie? And it is here that acknowledgment of Our Lady's role in the Triumph will materialize physically in a massive, masterful Arch of Triumph that will soar into the skies as a lasting shrine to remind all of the holocaust of the womb, consecrated to the Holy Innocents who were martyred by Herod in his efforts to kill Jesus, and dedicated to the worldwide victims
of the present-day holocaust of abortion.
On January 16, 2001, "The Association for The Arch of Triumph of
the Immaculate Heart of Mary and International Shrine of the Holy
Innocents," a not-for-profit New York corporation, was formed in
The Association's purpose is to build a truly world-class, globally
significant shrine, to be located on the shore of Lake Erie adjacent
to downtown Buffalo.
The shrine will feature primarily a monumental, ascendable, golden
triumphal arch -- The Arch of Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
to be the world’s tallest monument measuring 700 feet to the tip of
the golden Cross that will surmount its peak (seven being the mystical
number of perfection, as Mary represents the perfection of humanity).
The following is a press release from the Association For The Arch
By unanimous vote, the 13-member Common Council of the City of
Buffalo, NY passed a Resolution in support of the Arch of Triumph of
the Immaculate Heart of Mary and International Shrine of the Holy
Innocents, on April 2, 2002.
The Association releases the following response by its Executive
Director, Laurence D. Behr, Esq., who is also president of Western
New York Lawyers for Life.
The Resolution, introduced by Councilman-at-Large Charley Fisher,
proclaims "that the good of society depends in part upon the vitality
of its religious institutions," and observes that the Association,
founded by "leaders of Buffalo's professional and lay Catholic
community, has proposed to construct a monumental shrine in keeping
with the tenets of the Catholic faith, which is the religious heritage
of the majority of the residents of Buffalo."
Addressing the Pro-Life aspect of the immense shrine project, which
drew fire from local individuals when first announced in the summer of
2001, the Common Council stated, "the proposed shrine would also
encourage increased respect for human life, including prior to the
birth of the individual, a value much needed in the present day
notwithstanding that there are differing opinions on the issue of
'pro-life' versus 'pro-choice.'"
The Resolution notes that "the shrine would attract pilgrims and
tourists from all parts of the continent and the world," and that the
shrine is to be "built according to high standards of architectural
beauty and integrity" and will "add to Buffalo's treasure of renowned
architectural attractions," concluding with a statement that the
Common Council "approves and supports" the efforts of the Association.
"We are grateful for the Common Council's support, and in particular
for its recognition that respect for human life is not a divisive
issue, but is instead the bedrock foundation of all law and morality.
Mary, the Mother of Jesus, exemplified respect for life when, through
her great faith in God, she accepted an unplanned and unwed pregnancy,
in the context of a society that, much more than our own, stigmatized
and punished such a condition. The Holy Innocents, slain by King Herod
in his effort to murder the Christ Child, exemplify what can happen
when people put worldly values above love and respect for the weakest
members of society.
"This great and awesome shrine is about far more than the pro-life
issue, however. It also will promote the importance of family life,
the only "building block" of society, which is so challenged today,
and is indeed in crisis. The family is under attack from the forces of
consumerism, materialism, and hedonism. These are opposed by the
spiritual values this shrine will proclaim, through the example of
Mary's poverty of spirit, and her beautiful and childlike purity of
heart. The shrine will include a monumental statue of the Holy
Family - Jesus, Mary and Joseph - established by God as an example for
all families, of the selfless love and devotion that is proper between
family members, and so essential for the transmission of sound,
life-giving values from generation to generation.
"Further, the shrine will promote true peace between individuals and
peoples. The Infant Prince of Peace, Jesus, Love Incarnate, upraised
by His Mother Mary and presented to the world as the answer to its
seemingly impossible conflicts, will proclaim to all that with God,
Who is Love, all things are possible.
"This great shrine will be a place of healing, refuge, hope, consolation
and peace, for peoples everywhere, and of every faith. Our Common
Council has shown wisdom in recognizing the great and unmitigated
blessing that The Arch of Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
and International Shrine of the Holy Innocents will be, not only for the
people of Buffalo, but for our country and the world.
"We already have begun to receive a great outpouring of support and
encouragement from faithful people around the U.S. and Canada, many
local chapters have started in both countries, and people in distant
countries have expressed great enthusiasm and have offered their help.
We ask all people of faith to support this great endeavor, and join us
in seeking a return to God, to the goodness of sacrificial love, and to
purity of heart."
Mr. Behr and The Association for The Arch of Triumph, need the help of those
dedicated to upholding the Sanctity of Life.
Please go to there website at www.ArchofTriumph.org/chapter.html and learn more about this magnificent
endeavor and where you can see an artist sketch of the proposed
Arch of Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
The realization of this great salute to Our Blessed Mother and Her
innocent unborn children depends on the financial support of all the
faithful Catholics of the International Pro-Life Movement.
Behr points out that If each sent just $100 -- more if we can, or whatever we are able,
we will see the Arch of Triumph rise as a beacon of truth for America
and the world in short order.
As I was reading the press release and Mr. Behr’s comments, I couldn’t
help but think -- of course it would be Buffalo to be politically incorrect
and honor our dead children, who were killed at the whim of their mothers,
in the worst holocaust in the history of the world.
It was Buffalo where Father Norman Weslin.O.S. was sentenced to 5
months in federal prison today for "criminal" contempt. His crime: kneeling
in silent prayer in full priestly vestments inside an expanded "60' Banned
Free Speech and Religious Expression Zone" outside a killing center that
averages 40 kills a day.
Planned Parenthood and the abortion mills demonize and seek the prosecution
of all those who publicly witness for unborn children. They were awarded
the titles -- "domestic terrorists" and "public nuisance," by New York
Attorney General, Eliot Spitzer.
Father Weslin, who is 71 years old, taught his Lambs of Christ, to offer up
all pain, suffering and humiliations as "Victim Souls" in reparation for the
deliberate killing of our future and God's children. He said, “we Lambs
up our sacrifices and unite ourselves with Jesus' pains and sufferings so
that His Father will stop the killing of our most precious "natural resource"
-- His newly created children and America's next generation!!”
So, naturally it would be Buffalo through the hard work of Mr. Behr, and
The Association for The Arch of Triumph to be the first major city to
show remorse and remembrance of the worst blight in the history of our
By the way, Mr. Behr was blessed to have known Fr. Weslin and to have
rendered legal assistance to him. Fr. Weslin is now, out of prison.
For every $100 of your donation, the name of a person, living or
deceased, born or unborn, may be indelibly inscribed on the Golden
Arch of Mary’s Triumph!
If you have been waiting for a worthwhile cause to support, this is it.
Be a party in helping to end the holocaust of the womb and showing
your respect for God's precious children, who had no trial, but were
killed, just for the sake of convenience.
