I leaned down and kissed my son

Dear Friends for Life: Many individuals in today’s society understand the pain felt by mothers after they have aborted their babies. But what about Post-Abortion Syndrome which affects men? As the body count of unborn babies continues to increase, research shows that more and more fathers are desperately crying out in pain as a result of these abortions. Several weeks ago while browsing google on this topic, I ran across the following article: “My ‘Friend’ Assumed I’d Be Pro Abortion for Cleft Babies Like Mine & He’s Dead Wrong”. This, in turn, resulted in writing on abortion and unborn babies with cleft lip. Continue reading

ProLifers as Modern Disciples – The India Experience

As I look out the window this morning, the world seems to have a surreal appearance. The feeling I sense in Japan is a quiet calmness before the storm hits. The effect of the Coronavirus pandemic will eventually touch all of us in some way. Hopefully, the world will come to realize the need “to work together” and “to put God back into society.” Without this, life will only continue to get worse. Continue reading

The Nativity Scene

Every Nativity scene is a “living Gospel,” as Pope Francis says. Looking at the Child in the manger, I try to understand what this means. What is a “living Gospel”? One clear message flowing from the scene is that we must turn and become like children to enter the kingdom of heaven. In Matthew 18:1-8, God’s words tell us that to acknowledge the rights and dignity of children is to acknowledge Him and accept His meaning of life. The message clearly implies every child has a universal inalienable right to equal status, equal rights and equal dignity. To deny this is to deny ourselves. Continue reading

God or Nothing

Dear Friends for Life: In recent months, newspapers, magazines and news reporting have shown worsening trends regard current life issues. The slippery slope is widening and people’s lives are hurting. God is gradually being removed from society, leaving a road of confusion, suffering and hidden guilt in its wake. Continue reading

The Devil’s Great 2020 Accomplishment: the Killing of 60 Million Unborn Baby and dead SILENCE

Dear Friends for Life: A serious question lingers among Catholic believers today. Are our Shepherds doing their job? According to Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan fact tank that informs the public about the issues, attitudes, and trends shaping America and the world, recently stated that among Catholic Republicans, 55% say abortion should be illegal in all or most cases (leaving 45% approval). At the same time, 64% of Catholic Democrats say abortion should be legal in all or most cases. The PRC concludes that Catholics often express opinions that are much more in line with the positions of their political parties than with the teachings of their church. Is this a sign that God and the Catholic Church no longer play a primary role in the lives of Baptized Catholics? Continue reading

“The Devil is Smiling”. Where are our Shepherds??

Abortion’s “slippery slope” continues to expand throughout the world and the crack in the wall gets bigger. The most shocking news took place recently in the United States. The headlines read, “NY governor signs sweeping new abortion law that allows abortions after 24 weeks”. This law, the so-called Reproductive Health Act, permits abortions after 24 weeks and allows abortions at any point in a pregnancy.

Wishing you a New Year lit up with joy and happiness!

49179440_2120323344697678_2033188400680402944_nPope Francis’s greeting at the beginning of this year is: Peace be to this house!” Bringing peace is central to the mission of Christ’s disciples. That peace” is offered to all those men and women who long for peace amid the tragedies and violence that mark human history. The house of which Jesus speaks is every family, community, country, and continent, in all their diversity and history. It is first and foremost each individual person, without distinction or discrimination. But it is also our common home: the world in which God has placed us and which we are called to care for and cultivate. Together let us work for this Peace in 2019… Continue reading

“Merry Christ-mas”

Christmas! God yearns for intimacy with humanity. He sends His Son who enters and becomes man in our current human condition: where more than one billion children live in extreme poverty, 22,000 die each day due to poverty; where an estimate of 40-50 million babies every year are not allowed to be born, about 125,000 per day; where more than 357 million children live in war and conflict zones, half in “high-intensity “areas. Yet the LIGHT of HOPE continues to burn for humanity. EMMANUEL- “God is with us”. Jesus is born for all of us and gives all of us the love of God, the love gives all His children the same love of God. Let us allow our heart, our soul, and our mind be touched by this fact. “Merry Christ-mas”

Society Dehumanizing Unborn Babies?

Dear Friends for Life:   Why this evil-disposed attack on procreation today? Procreation, the sexual activity of conceiving and bearing a biological offspring, is gradually being equalized with the phrase “profit and power at any cost”. Just look around. Big industry extending its strong influence over procreation and changing the meaning through manufacturing, engineering and controlling. For example, babies are made by IVF. In the process, on the average of 24 tiny lives die in order for one life to survive. Another example: Desired embryos are implanted in a uterus. The big question is: Whose uterus? The mother’s? A rented one (surrogacy)? An artificial womb? Yes, we are approaching a biotechnological breakthrough. Ectogenesis, the invention of a complete external womb, could completely change the nature of human reproduction. In April of last year, researchers at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia announced their development of an artificial womb. Continue reading

The Importance of “Human Life” – 1968-2020

Dear Friends for Life:   Humanae Vitae”, the prophetic encyclical written by Pope Paul VI in 1968, warned Catholics about the culture of contraception and the deadly impact it would have on society. Over five decades later of killing innocent babies through surgical abortion, the pill, and abortifacients such as Norplant and RU-486, can there be any doubt that there is a real link between contraception and abortion?
