(This article is part of an ongoing series showing adult obsession in waging “War Against Children” by Fr. Jerry.)

“You’ll die of old age; we’ll die of climate change!” Young people strike back against apathy among politicians dealing with climate change. “What do we want? Climate justice! When do we want it? Now!” echoed throughout central Glasgow as thousands of protesters took the streets during the dedicated “Youth Day” at COP26. Young leaders did their best to make their voices be heard, expressing their discontent with the current state of climate action, or, as some claimed, “climate inaction.” Even very small children gathered in the demonstration. “Climate change is worse than homework”, one of them told UN News.

War Against Children: Body Parts – “Worst Nightmare For the Unborn” (Part 5)

(This article is part of an ongoing series showing adult obsession in waging “War Against Children” by Fr. Jerry.)

Life is Beautiful. Life is precious and sacred.

Good people believe in the sanctity of the human person with rights and dignity to be protected and preserved. Yet there are those who disagree. They declare open War Against the Unborn. But there is no “good” war. In the end, millions die and many are left crippled. Why then fight the war in the first place? The reason is that this war against the unborn is very profitable. Take for example the following event. The world was shocked when it heard that the University of Pittsburgh has been harvesting the organs of unborn babies while their hearts are still beating.

(This article is part of an ongoing series showing adult obsession in waging “War Against Children” by Fr. Jerry.)

While coping with the pandemic, we have an opportunity to rediscover basic values of humanity and the human bonds that connect us. We have it in our hands to learn things about our world and about ourselves. One lesson we learn is how important hunger is. In our world today, about 700 million people go to bed hungry every night. Yes, 700 million human beings.

How many children worldwide suffer from hunger? An estimated 18 million children worldwide are facing extreme food shortages and of this number more than 5.7 million children under five are on the brink of starvation. How many kids die from hunger? Every year, more than 3 million children die from hunger-related causes. A child dies from hunger every 10 seconds.

Abortion Is The Leading Cause Of Death In The USA And Worldwide

Pastoral Statement 2021 by Bishop Michael Pfeifer, OMI

More human beings died in abortion that any other cause of death in 2020. The statistics compiled by Worldometers gives the astounding heart- breaking reminder that there were over 42.6 million abortions worldwide this past year. Abortion was almost more than all other causes combined. Since Roe v Wade 48 years ago 62 million precious babies have been brutally destroyed in abortion in the USA, far surpassing all the military personnel death in all our wars. This past year abortions almost doubled the half a million who died because of COVID. This terrible holocaust continues to increase because sadly, by many, unborn babies are still not recognized and appreciated as human beings. Biology and all recent medical research affirms our belief based on many scriptural references and constant teaching of the church that from the first moment of conception, these precious babies are unique, living human beings made in the very image of God calling us to be pro-life and pro-eternal life at all stages of life and they die a brutal, violent death in abortion. Our motto is; choose life for both mother and child.

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.

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

Pope Francis is Right: Death Row has no place in Catholicism

On October 3rd, 2020, Pope Francis’ new encyclical, Fratelli Tutti,” does something that some Catholics believed could not be done: It ratifies a change in church teaching. In this case, on the death penalty. In August 2, 2018, Pope Francis ordered a revision to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, updating it to describe the death penalty as “inadmissible” and an “attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person.” In Evangelium Vitae, St. Pope John Paul II identified a contradiction in contemporary culture. “Precisely in an age when the inviolable rights of the person are solemnly proclaimed and the value of life is publicly affirmed,” he lamented, “the very right to life is being denied or trampled upon, especially at the more significant moments of existence: the moment of birth and the moment of death.” Continue reading
