Father Jerry Gauvreau's Pro Life Homily - September 23, 2012

Run With Life: Pro-choice

Run With Life: Pro-choice: I think our MPs need to look at what the folks over at CCBR are doing. They might want to rethink whether or not they still want to vote aagainst Stephen Woodworth's motion 312.

There's nothing like the unvarnished truth of watching an abortion procedure--juxtaposed with Joyce Arthur speaking about her dogma of "women's rights"--to make you sit up and take notice.. For more click here

Run With Life: Who will the MPS listen to?

Run With Life: Who will the MPS listen to?: Check out Ted Gerk's excellent analysis of what Chief Justice Bertha Wilson said about abortion rights and abortion law. And about how Parliament is the place for debate on this subject to take place.

We already know only too well, how many Canadians are influenced by the extreme pro-abortion advocates in this country and it is unfortunate, since much of what they say is a perversion and twisting of reality. As Ted points out the pro-abortions even contradict themselves, changing their tune as they scoot along their merry pro-abortion way.

As a result of this loud and noisy revisionist nonsense, many Members of Parliament are also afraid to allow Canadians to debate abortion on any level, even when the discussion is only about a discussion on when does a child become a human being.

As for the pro-abortions, are they afraid of what might happen if we get to have this discussion? That their abortion rights house of cards might come tumbling down?

Let's hope our MPs use their own consciences today to decide for themselves whether or not Canadians should be allowed to discuss the point of Stephen Woodworth's motion.

Archdiocese of Toronto Blog: Cardinal Collins Affirms Statement from Archbishop...: Cardinal Thomas Collins has asked that the communication below be reproduced in this space, to help educate our Catholic community and to a...

Official Satement by Archbishop Michael Miller, CSB, Archbishop of Vancouver, regarding the morality of support for ‘gestational’ legislation.

Statement on Catholics Who Support Gestational Legislation

The Archdiocese of Vancouver strongly supports the prolife movement in Canada. We encourage prolife legislators, activists and groups to work cooperatively towards achieving recognition in Canadian law of the right to life of every person from conception to natural death. Cooperation does not always mean unanimity regarding a given strategy; open and civil debate about the wisdom of any specific strategy is healthy. We affirm the freedom of each member of the movement to discern the Wisdom of proposing and following a particular plan of action. In every instance, it is necessary to be guided by a well­ informed conscience regarding the moral liceity of an initiative.

Homily - Father Yves Marchildon -Sunday September 2, 2012

An author, Sister Ruth Burrows, from England, wrote this about faith:
“Faith is not a thing of the mind, it is not an intellectual certainty or a felt conviction of the heart. It is a sustained decision to take God with utter seriousness as the God of my life. It is to live out each hour in a practical, concrete affirmation that God is Father and he is “in heaven.” It is a decision to shift the center of our lives from ourselves to him, to forego self- interest and make his interests, his will, our sole concern …”
