Dignitas Personae- A Review

I have begun writing for http://www.personhoodus.com reviewing for my first few articles the Instruction, Dignitas personae.

First, I suggest that you check out the website and then check out my article.  It’s one page and quick reading.  In it, I give the link to the whole Instruction, in case you want to read it.

Sunday’s Comin’

forty days for life40 Days for Life is over on Sunday.  I thought this was quite appropriate so I decided to share.

 

Reflection by Fr. Frank Pavone

This meditation, based on a sermon I once heard, is adapted for pro-life concerns.

It’s Friday. Jesus is on the cross. He has been killed by his enemies; he is off the scene.

But that’s because it’s Friday. Sunday’s comin’!

It’s Friday. Abortionists continue their work 3,300 times a day, tearing off the arms and legs of little babies and crushing their heads.

But that’s because it’s Friday. Sunday’s comin’!

It’s Friday. Pro-abortion groups receive blood money from billionaires who are as deceived as they are.

But that’s because it’s Friday. Sunday’s comin’!

It’s Friday. Liars attempt to speak for all women and hide the pain of abortion, and ignore the evidence of how it harms women, and call abortion a blessing.

But that’s because it’s Friday. Sunday’s comin’!

It’s Friday. People of hardened hearts guard the clinics and usher desperate women in to have their abortions, while keeping them from the pro-life people who want to give them hope.

But that’s because it’s Friday. Sunday’s comin’!

Hope does not mean that we ignore or minimize the evils around us. It means, rather, that we see the whole picture, which is that evil is conquered because of what happened one Sunday morning.

We are called to proclaim, celebrate, and serve that victory, waiting in joyful hope for Christ’s return and the full flowering of the Culture of Life!

Indeed, Sunday’s comin’!

So why is it so hard to pray for some people?

We found out that our Mom, who is 86, has a mass on her one lung.  She will be having a biopsy next Tuesday so that the doctors will know what they are dealing with but she has already decided that there will be no surgery, no radiation, no chemo–nothing.  I understand it but I don’t at the same time.  Because I am pro-life from conception to natural death and believe all the church teachings about the value of life and how we are to preserve it.  (Read CCC 2278)  I don’t get her attitude–her non will to live, as it were.

Mentioned this to my friend today whose older brother is 88 and in remission from lung cancer after going through a few chemo treatments.  When questioned by the doctors if he had a living will, he told them that he had something better, he had the will to live.

I hope that mom will pray to the Holy Spirit, the Giver of Life, to be sure that she is doing what He would have her do instead of refusing treatment out of some selfish reason of pride or control that none of us really have over our life.

My daughter asked me a while back while her Grandma was so miserable in her life.  And that is what brings me to the title of this blog.  My mom is so miserable that she makes her children miserable.  We are all such a disappointment to her (except my brother.)  She actually told my sister that yesterday.  My sister put our mom on her prayer “chains,” but first she had to ask for prayers for herself so that she can deal with our mom’s self-pity and whining all the time.  So some people are hard to pray for without first fortifying ourselves with prayer.

Finally, I was going to take it personally that I am a disappointment to my mom and then, the Lord woke me up at 3:00 a.m. today and I was laughing at my mother and at myself.  So I pulled out my rosary, said it for her, and went back to sleep with a smile on my face and joy and peace in my heart.

Gotta love the Holy Spirit!

#Gosnell

Hello, everyone.

I know we had planned to read about the Scriptural basis for the Nicene Creed; however, we will be putting that off until Monday afternoon.

Today, I have been tweeting about Kermit #Gosnell and the trial that the mainstreet media is not covering.  #Gosnell is being tried for 8 counts of first degree murder in his clinic that has been described in the transcripts as a house of horrors.

So, if you want to get more information about this and what the pro-life community is doing until midnight then go here:

If you would pray a rosary for all the preborn babies and their mothers especially the 3000 that will be aborted today that would be a blessing!  Believe, I am praying one over and over today that God uses our efforts in this Tweet-effort to bring good!

Thanks and see you Monday.

Dare we trust that this is true?

Susan G. Komen stops grants to Planned Parenthood.

Only time will tell.  It could be a long-awaited answer to prayer. I love the idea of PP scrambling around.

 

I tweeted this and put it on my facebook; however it’s worth repeating here.
