“With the timing of a professional comedian, this diminutive “little old lady” shines a very funny light on the foibles of aging, to the delight of an audience filled with senior-care experts.

A friend of the couple who founded Home Instead Senior Care, Mary Maxwell was asked to give the invocation at the company’s 2009 Convention. Initially it seemed like a normal prayer, but it soon took a very funny turn. Her deadpan delivery and lines like …This is the first time I’ve ever been old… and it just sort of crept up on me … had everyone rolling in the aisles.

“EUCAHRISTC MIRACLE ( LIVE FOOTAGE/FOR REAL ….)

DESCENt OF THE HOLY EUCHARIST”

I find these miracles interesting not because they manifest themselves but because were reminded that Jesus is always present among all of the faithful and the world at large.  Seen and unseen.  Were not obligated to believe in these miracles happening in the world but its nice when God decides to manifest himself under the species of the Eucharist.  God Bless and Peace to His faithful.

This was so beautiful I had to include it.  May you be inspired as I am by the Lord.

“A Eucharistic flash mob in the centre of Preston, organised by the Capuchin Franciscans on Ascension Thursday 2011.

A small team of Catholic evangelists mingled with the crowd to hand out cards and explain what was going on. Here are some of the reactions….

“What is this about? What is happening? What is this about?”

One young girl said: “I’ve not seen anything like this since Church.”

“Are they doing this all day? … Will they be doing it again? … Are they doing this any where else?”

Two young women asked: “Why does God allow hurt and pain in the world?” They agreed it was not God’s fault but ours. Then they asked: “Why doesn’t Jesus come again?” We explained that He is here in the form of bread, but would come again and we invited them to think about Him now.

“Is it religious? What is inside that thing?”

A man said: “What is that guy doing?” An old woman with him replied: “That’s Jesus. Show respect.”

“This is so moving! It is the first time I have seen it done outside. I can’t wait to tell my parish priest!”

Thanks to Sean Zaniboni, Gerardo Gonzalez and the team for filming and producing the video.

NYC Mob to Descend on EMC LifeSavers! Help!
Saturday, October 27th, 2012
Dear Holly,

       NY City’s Council Speaker Christine Quinn, the manager of Dr. Emily’s abortion mill, and the usual suspects from Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice, NOW, the NYCLU and assorted leftovers from Occupy Wall Street, began “training” a goon squad of close to 75 so-called “escorts” (I prefer “deathscorts”) this weekend in New York City.

Starting next Saturday, they will fan out at abortion mills across NYC, after the flood waters recede, from the “Frankenstorm” barreling up the East Coast right now.

Their plan is to intimidate EMC FrontLine pro-life prayer and counseling teams on Saturdays at 560 Southern Blvd. in the South Bronx, for two straight months, to block our mobile clinic team from delivering our offers of free alternatives, free ultrasounds and real help.

Watch this TV coverage with my comments from the South Bronx yesterday.

Yes, this street gang is accusing our Expectant Mother Care’s- EMC FrontLine sidewalk counselors and prayer partners of “hostile and intimidating” actions against women. They call our presence on the public streets “potentially dangerous” and describe our staff and volunteers as “a gauntlet of vicious bullies who scream misogynist and racist epithets.”

If you’re asking: Are they kidding?  … If you’re asking: What planet are they on? They think they can scare us off, this Halloweentime, because they’re the abortion industry’s best friends in NYC.

They believe you and I don’t have the resolve and resources to stop them… but with your help, we can stop them! Because, YOU have proven that despite the odds we can save lives amidst opposition, and keep volunteers and trained staff coming back with zeal, at 7:30am on week after week, month after month, year after year.

Of course, they’re accusations are LIES!  There has never once been a single charge of harassment against EMC FrontLine counselors that has truly concerned the police. Not one. And, we have not had a single arrest of a team member since we began outdoor action in 2007.

We man no gauntlet, there is no screaming. There’s no hostility. There’s no danger. There is only prayer, free ultrasounds and giving mothers on the brink of abortion, a second chance.

And during our TENTH 40 Days for Life campaign, we have achieved, so far, 26 turnarounds—that’s babies saved —since September 26th. But we average over 500 saves with our mobile outreach per year.

“Dr. Emily’s,” Planned Parenthood and other abortionists here in the belly of the beast are driven crazy by every lost abortion sale.

So their gang of goons training for true harassment began this weekend, and will next week on, aim to stop our saves, so we are getting ready for their pushing, crowding, blocking, threats, vileness and pure hostile intimidation.

So what’s really going on here? Why are they picking on us and making up these wild stories? I’ll tell you why: We’re costing the abortion clinics tens of thousands of dollars of blood money and they’re furious about it! For instance this week, our counselors turned around a mother at Dr. Emily’s planning an abortion at 24 weeks.

In cash, that’s a $1,700 loss for Dr. Emily’s, but with a Medicaid or private insurance abortion rate abortion it’s certainly a loss of thousands of dollars more.

Dr. Emily’s, Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and NOW will spend any amount of money to stop us from having an effect on their abortion businesses’ “bottom-line.”

EMC’s bottom line is that it costs us on average $500 to save a baby, and with your gift right now, you help us make that happen. We save one baby every 75 minutes, each work day.

Make no mistake, what folks like us call the murder of innocent life, they call their “bottom line,” but whatever they may wish to call it, we need your help to cut into their “cash cow.”

In front of “Dr. Emily’s clinic,” EMC Frontline staffs a year round crew of four to eight pro-lifers, four days a week, with our mobile ultrasound unit.  (This hard work is not for everyone, and we must replenish our interns throughout the year.)

But clearly, we’re not some army of screaming, placard-waving protestors, like the city officials and their cronies would have you think. It’s a handful, and sometimes medium size group, of prayerful counselors with brochures, and a trusty lady ultrasound technician, and bus driver who protects us.

But since we started out there seven years ago, the killing business in that facility has plummeted by half. We get two to three turnarounds a day (2.5 avg./day x 4 days = 10/week,) with late-term abortions they do (up to 24 weeks, or six months) priced at $1,700, we’re costing them about conservatively about $28,000 a month in lost abortion business (10 saves x $750 per average abortion = $28,000.)

Those dollars lost amount to precious lives saved. That’s all because of you, and your support that keeps us going. And these abortionists and their backers are seething about what you and our staff are doing. You can save lives via PayPal, credit card, or ECheck.

We’ve fought off two efforts to eliminate our outside work, two so called NYC “clinic access bill” in the last decade, and now Local Law #17 to cripple our indoor pregnancy centers, still in federal court. But because these legal maneuvers haven’t shut us down yet, viola their latest manuveur.

We need to band together now more than ever. These officials have it in for us and the babies we’re trying to save. But we will fight until we can’t fight any more, because their lives are worth it.

Are you still on this with me? Are we going to do this together, for the long haul?

Because that’s what it takes, the long-term presence, the religious regularity of our volunteers, staff, interns, our mobile sonogram unit. Every day, helping, witnessing, proclaiming life. Showing living babies in their mothers womb. It’s working.

Every month it takes me about $84,000 to pay the insurance on the van, generator fuel, staff, rent, and utilities advertising and intern expenses and training to fund our life-saving at 12 life centers and abortion sites. We’re running lean, and every month I’m praying and struggling to cover the bills. And the City fights me all the way as they seek to preserve the Abortion Capital of America title and increase the 40% abortion rate.

Will you please help me today with an urgent gift of $50 or $100 or $500, the cost of saving one baby every hour and a quarter, or even $1,000 to save two babies so we can stay in the fight for these coming two months?

We can’t stop the goon squads. But we sure can’t let them stop us.

 

Yours for Life on the FrontLines.

P.S. You and I can outlast the pro-abort hordes descending on our humble but persistent crew at Dr. Emily’s abortion mill in the South Bronx. It takes us $500 to save each life at EMC sites, and we are at over 40,000 saves as we complete the first month of our 28th year. Your support right now, will show this crowd of thugs that we will not be intimidated and we will not go away, because every Life is worth saving.
PPS Your donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
