PeakTV did a special on us on Sunday Oct 25th. Here is the clip of our episode.

For the Love of Life!

  Situated on the Gulf Coast of Alabama, Mary’s Shelter was founded to address the needs of homeless pregnant women who are experiencing an unwanted or unplanned pregnancy. Our mothers come to us with no one to help them, no money, and no place to live. Before hearing of Mary’s Shelter, many of them felt that their only option was to have an abortion. By providing them with a home during this difficult time in their life, we enable these women to say ‘yes’ to life for their unborn child.

  The women and children served by Mary’s Shelter are given the opportunity to live in a clean, secure, loving, family environment staffed by caring Christian professionals. But Mary’s Shelter aims to go beyond simply being a maternity home providing these homeless pregnant women with shelter and sustenance. While saving the babies’ lives is of paramount importance, equally important is helping these vulnerable women to eventually achieve happy, healthy and productive lives.

  While residing at the shelter, our mothers participate in Spirituality classes (Bible study and devotional time), Prenatal and personal health classes, and parenting classes. Along with these specific classes the women also participate in several group type discussions which give them an understanding of better ways to relax, relieve stresses and a better understanding of nutritional value for themselves and their child/children. Here at Mary’s Shelter we believe education plays a major role in their success upon leaving here, so we also provide Graduate Equivalency Degree (GED) tutoring, preparation and testing. It is also mandatory that they undergo counseling by qualified counselors. 

  In addition, the mothers are given the information they need to be able to make an informed decision regarding the future of their unborn child – whether to parent the child or consider adoption. Through family-style living, our moms learn how to resolve conflicts. They learn how to care for their children, for themselves and for their home. Each mother’s program and progress are evaluated every three months.

DONATION TO:  PLEASE GIVE WHAT YOU CAN OR GENEROUSLY TODAY.  YOU MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE AND ANOTHER’S SOMEDAY.

Bill Donohue comments on Sen. Tim Kaine’s pro-life record:

Tim Kaine wants to save the lobo, but not the kids.

I confess I had no idea what a lobo was until I looked it up—it’s a Mexican grey wolf. Tim says we are running out of them (he does not say whether we should build a wall to save them). How do I know? Because the Defender of Wildlife Action Fund gave him a 91 percent rating in 2015, and a 100 percent rating in 2013; on the front page of its website the #1 cause is “Don’t Let the Lobos Go Extinct.”

The Defender of Wildlife Action Fund is also worried about saving the eggs of the bald eagle, a goal that Tim no doubt shares (as do I). What about human eggs? Tim has no interest in protecting them. How do I know? Because he merits a 100 percent rating from both NARAL and Planned Parenthood, and they support abortion-on-demand.

The Washington Post calls Tim “A Pope Francis Catholic.” But the pope’s position on abortion would receive a 0 from NARAL and Planned Parenthood. The pope also supports marriage, properly understood.

In a Polling Company survey we commissioned of Catholics last year, we learned that 61 percent of Catholics reported that abortion should not be permitted in all or most instances; the figure for practicing Catholics was higher. That means Tim is not representative of most Catholics on this issue.

Tim likes gay marriage. How do I know? Because he received a 100 percent rating from the radical gay group, the Human Rights Campaign. Once again, Tim is out of step: our survey found that 58 percent of Catholics think marriage should be between a man and a woman.

If Tim were to treat unborn children the way he treats lobos, and acknowledge the obvious—marriage was meant for the only two people who can create a family—he would improve his standing among Catholics. As it is, his positions make him an outlier.

See article here:  http://www.watchthis.com/story/culture/2016/06/09/woman-thinks-her-baby-blowing-bubble-ultrasound-then-doctors-reveal-what-it

“Tammy Gonzalez, from Miami, Florida, was undergoing a mundane ultrasound when doctors supposedly found what looked like a giant bubble being blown just above the baby’s mouth.

“Is that on me or the baby?” Gonzalez asked the doctor. But what looked like a cute happenstance, turned out to be an expecting mother’s worst nightmare.

After further examination, the doctors realized the amorphous bubble was something called a teratoma. Teratomas are extremely rare tumors that affect roughly 1 in every 100,000 births and can be fatal, according to Diply.

Gonzalez’ doctors reportedly suggested she terminate the pregnancy lest she face a possible miscarriage. But the mother-to-be refused, asserting that something could be done to save her unborn child.”

Catholic Answers Director of Apologetics and Evangelization discusses what the Catholic Church teaches about abortion and why it is a non-negotiable moral issue.

Would you like a concise explanation of where the Church stands on five of today’s most important, non-negotiable moral issues?

This important new CD by Tim Staples is an expansion of Catholic Answers’ acclaimed Voter’s Guide for Serious Catholics. And it will help you vote in an informed manner consistent with Catholic moral teaching and fundamental human rights.

All five moral issues discussed on this CD—abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning, and same-sex “marriage”—have been definitively declared by the Church to be objectively and absolutely immoral. And you, as a faithful Catholic, are required to vote against all five and—with only rare exceptions—to vote against politicians who support any of them.

Now, in Five Non-Negotiables, Tim Staples clearly explains: * Why the Church teaches as it does about these five issues; * Why the Church’s teachings are binding on all Catholics; * Why these issues are “black-and-white” and unchangeable; * Why it’s a serious sin to vote contrary to the moral teaching of the Church on these issues; * Why these issues trump others—even important ones—when it comes to voting.

Five Non-Negotiables, along with the Voter’s Guide for Serious Catholics, will quickly bring you up to speed on Church teaching about these five crucial political and moral issues.

The Sisters of Life is a contemplative / active religious community of women founded in 1991 by John Cardinal O’Connor for the protection and enhancement of the sacredness of every human life. Like all religious communities, we take the three traditional vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. We also are consecrated under a special, fourth vow to protect and enhance the sacredness of human life.
Reverence and gratitude for the unique and unrepeatable gift of each human life made in the image and likeness of God fuels the prayer of each Sister, our first mission in building the Kingdom of God and the “Culture of Life.” It also provides the starting point for our interactions with others, especially relationships in community between our 80 Sisters (who come from across the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, Australia and Spain), and in our apostolates.
Inspired by the love of Christ our Spouse, the author of Life, we desire to pour out all our gifts of nature and grace in the apostolate, that nothing of the gift of life, and no one to whom it has been given, should be lost.
Our missions are carried out with the heart of the Church and with the hope of revealing to those we serve the inherent goodness and beauty of their own lives, so that each person may see and experience the truth that they are an unrepeatable creation of the Master.

NOTE:  My site has a few pregnancy crisis centers.  If your in trouble please access my life.  Before you decide to abort please consider the information I have here before you decide to go this route.  You might find that there are a lot more options for you out there. Love in Christ Jean’sBistro2010’s blog.

Ahead of Historic Sainthood Mass, Pope Francis Speaks Out Against AbortionThe big story this weekend was Pope Francis’ elevation of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II to sainthood. The “four-pope mass” was noteworthy not only because two popes (John XXIII and John Paul II) had never been canonized at the same time, but also because two living popes (Francis and the papal emeritus Benedict XVI) had never been present for a canonization. They were joined by nearly a million other people in Vatican City.

Two Very Different Saints Come Marching In The Wall Street Journal Francis presides over historic day of 4 popes Associated Press 10 things you need to know today: April 27, 2014 The Week (RSS) Hundreds of thousands watch two popes become saints Reuters Pope Francis declares John Paul II, John XXIII saints AFP In his homily, Pope Francis praised both 20th-century pontiffs effusively. The Holy See also sought to dispel the public curiosity about the canonization of two men who were considered to be dogmatically very different; the “liberal” Pope John XXIII and the “conservative” John Paul II.

“They were priests, bishops and popes of the 20th century. They lived through the tragic events of that century, but they were not overwhelmed by them. For them, God was more powerful; faith was more powerful.”

Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Father James Martin offered that the biographical differences between major figures in the history of the church are part of what made their spiritual quests compelling.

Consider how the personalities of some of the most notable men and women in the church led them to live out their calls. St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, gave up a military career to follow God; St. Joan of Arc began one. Dorothy Day, the co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement, started a newspaper, while St. Bernadette Soubirous, the visionary of Lourdes, shrank in horror from the idea of her story ever being published. St. Thomas Aquinas spent his life surrounded by books, while St. Francis of Assisi instructed his friars not to own even one lest they become too proud.”

Ahead of the weekend’s event, Pope Francis showed glimpses of that complexity on Friday, when he made a seemingly rare statement to a group of African bishops in which he strongly condemned abortion.

Abortion compounds the grief of many women who now carry with them deep physical and spiritual wounds after succumbing to the pressures of a secular culture which devalues God’s gift of sexuality and the right to life of the unborn.”

Pope Francis has made a habit of focusing on poverty and social inequality rather than abortion, which remains a divisive issue both within and beyond the Catholic church. Two weeks before, he had called abortion “an unspeakable crime” during a speech to an Italian anti-abortion group.

NOTE: For many of you seeking an abortion I ask that you check out my search on my home page and type in “alternatives for abortion”. It should list sights for help in pregnancy crisis. There is help. Dont be alone in your decision. I respect your eventual decision but in the mean time I hope I can try to persuade you to do otherwise. Love in Christ brothers and sisters. This goes out to all male and female.

Living the Truth the Church Teaches

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true. —Soren Kierkegaard. "...truth is true even if nobody believes it, and falsehood is false even if everybody believes it. That is why truth does not yield to opinion, fashion, numbers, office, or sincerity--it is simply true and that is the end of it" - Os Guinness, Time for Truth, pg.39. “He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
