Important Information for the New Jersey Primary Election

Below is information from Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life on the upcoming primary which was rescheduled for July 7th. 

Vote prolife

The Primary Election was moved to Tuesday, July 7, 2020 due to the COVID pandemic. The Election will change primarily to a Vote-by-Mail Ballot system.  Every registered republican and registered democrat in the state will receive a mail-in ballot, while unaffiliated voters will receive a mail-in ballot application.  If you are an unaffiliated voter, your mail-in ballot application must be received by your county clerk by June 30, 2020.

Postage for both ballots and applications will be prepaid, and at least one polling place in each municipality will remain open, provided there are enough poll workers.

Archbishop Vigano Speaks Out Against Culture of Death in Letter to President Donald Trump

The following is from a letter written by Archbishop Carlos Vigano. Vigano broke the scandal involving Cardinal McCarrick in 2018. The letter was analyzed by Judie Brown, which has been posted to the blog.

Archbishop Carlos Maria Vigano has just released one of the most explosive and prophetic letters in a generation to President Trump!

Vigano not only mentions the impact of the “deep state” and its role in maligning and distorting Catholic teaching, but he also offers tremendous hope to faithful pro-life Catholics in America:

“It is necessary that the good, the children of light, come together and make their voices heard. What more effective way is there to do this, Mr. President, than by prayer, asking the Lord to protect you, the United States, and all of humanity from this enormous attack of the Enemy?

Before the power of prayer, the deceptions of the children of darkness will collapse, their plots will be revealed, their betrayal will be shown, their frightening power will end in nothing, brought to light and exposed for what it is: an infernal deception.”

— LifeSiteNews (07  June 2020)

Meanwhile, what is ‘Uncle Ted’ McCarrick’s hand picked successor up to?

Rather than protest the nearest Planned Parenthood, Archbishop Wilton Gregory ordered the priests and bishops of the Archdiocese of Washington to protest President Trump at a rally in Lafayette Park.
 

“Of the about 200 priests and nuns, dressed in clerical garb, who showed up, many carried politically charged signs. One Dominican sister held a sign reading, “I repent of my racism.” A Franciscan brother lifted a crucifix aloft, while a man walking behind him raised two messages, one reading “Trump mocks Christ,” the other saying, “Barr is complicit.”

— Washington Examiner (08  June 2020)

When was the last time you saw the likes of Archbishop Gregory or any of McCarrick’s “men” protest Planned Parenthood with this sort of energy?

Vigano is right about the enemies within.  We live in dark times.

. . . but Vigano is also right to sound the call to arms

Society either recognizes the profound, inherent, moral and equal dignity of every human person or it does not.  That was the moral leadership of Pope Saint John Paul II.

Cupich, Gregory, Dolan, Wuerl and the whole host of “men” who protected sexual predator and disgraced former Cardinal Theodore ‘Uncle Ted’ McCarrick aren’t practicing the Catholic faith — they are selling out to the highest bidder, and the babies are their victims.

You and I know this fight is coming.  In fact, it is already here.

That’s why I urgently need your support right now with a gift of $35, $50, $100 or even $250 or $500 right away.

The truth is that babies are dying, and rather than stop the killing these pro-abortion Catholic bishops would rather protest the most pro-life president we have ever had in service to a leftist political agenda.

They’ve closed our parishes.  They’ve denied faithful Catholics the sacraments. . . but they can pile in together at Lafayette Park in service to a political agenda?!   When was the last time Gregory protested an abortion center with this much energy? (HINT: the answer is never)

ENOUGH.

Vigano’s prophetic words deserve our support.   I’m going to take it right into the teeth of these whiny, spineless bishops until they DEFEND THE EUCHARIST and ENFORCE CANON LAW 915.

Dear Bishops: Be Lions for Christ

The following is from an email blast sent out by Judie Brown of the American Life League. Please see information on how you can encourage your bishop to be bold and take a stand against public servants who dismiss Catholic teachings while in public office. 

The ongoing hypocrisy of pro-abortion Catholics like Joe Biden continues to boggle the Catholic mind. It is hard for any of us to understand how any thinking human being who claims to be Catholic could be such a voracious supporter of aborting little babies! Yet that is exactly what Biden and his ilk are up to on a daily basis.

On the other hand, we have the American Catholic bishops who are all atwitter with the coronavirus, shutting down churches and encouraging Catholics to use at-home resources including online Mass. Baltimore’s Archbishop Lori told the media: “We do not feel as though we have been forced into doing this by the government. We feel like we’re doing the right thing.”

Yet, when it comes to pro-abortion Catholics like Biden and Pelosi spreading a virus of disdain for preborn babies—a “virus” that surgically kills more than 2,000 individual human beings daily—the bishops only resort to occasional criticism. They have never taken steps as a united body to deny Biden the sacrament of Holy Eucharist.

In fact, the entire cast of characters known as the USCCB has never acted to deny any pro-abortion Catholic public figure the body of Christ!

Somehow it seems easier for bishops to shut the doors of the Church to faithful Catholics than to defend Christ from sacrilege.

We know that Christ’s presence in the Eucharist is real. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that “the Eucharist is ‘the source and summit of the Christian life.’” It further explains:

The mode of Christ’s presence under the Eucharistic species is unique. It raises the Eucharist above all the sacraments as “the perfection of the spiritual life and the end to which all the sacraments tend.” In the most blessed sacrament of the Eucharist “the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained.” “This presence is called ‘real’ – by which is not intended to exclude the other types of presence as if they could not be ‘real’ too, but because it is presence in the fullest sense: that is to say, it is a substantial presence by which Christ, God and man, makes himself wholly and entirely present.”

Knowing the truth of these words and knowing the devotion that such a teaching should command, we are speechless to explain why the bishops are silent. It would seem to us that, just like the young boy Saint Tarsicius, our bishops would prefer death over permitting any sacrilege to befall Christ in the Eucharist.

But first, faith must exist. And it must be a faith in the real presence of Christ.

Fr. John Hardon, S.J., a holy priest who brought many to the Church and back to the Church, taught this about the body and blood of Christ in the Eucharist: “Only those who really believe that God became man can even begin to believe in His Real Presence now on earth in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. Thus, faith in the Incarnation is the foundation for our faith in the Real Presence. As a result, growth in our faith in the Incarnation is the condition for growth in our faith in the Real Presence.”

Joe Biden has said that “no one is expendable. No life is worth losing,” yet he condones the act of aborting a baby.

The bishops have said, in joint statements and with a single voice, that “abortion ends the life of a child and offends God.” Yet they are silent when it comes to defending Christ from sacrilege.

This dichotomy is a tragedy. We call upon the bishops, and we ask you to do likewise. Let them know that, as ordained men of God, they are obliged to defend the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist in the same way they defend the real presence of the child prior to birth.

Let us remind them, one by one, that “only those who really believe that God became man can even begin to believe in His Real Presence now on earth in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar.”

The Catholic bishops are obliged to teach, not tremble, especially in times like these.

Dear Bishops, be lions for Christ.

Mother’s Day Rally Asks Why Churches Non-Essential But Abortion Facilities Are

On a beautiful Saturday morning, 40 pro-lifers gathered outside of the Philadelphia Women’s Center for a pre-Mother’s Day rally.

Pat Stanton opened the rally with a prayer that stresses the importance of being created for God and by God for a purpose. He later asked the question as to why would churches be closed yet abortion facilities remain open under a communist governor like Tom Wolf.

The speakers included Marlene Downing of Hope Pregnancy, Katelyn D’Adamo of Generation Life, Fr. Michael Moriarty of Legionnaires of Christ, and Pastor Herb Lusk III.

Marlene stressed the importance of praying for the conversion of not just the mothers but also those that are accessory to the slaughter of innocent blood. She even knew that God has a plan for when the facility will be closed for good. She encouraged everyone to be steadfast and present.

Katelyn, the acting Director of Generation Life, shared how her closest friend was pregnant while attending college. Because of Katelyn being present, her friend chose life and graduated second in her class.

Following Katelyn was Kim Savage. Twenty years ago, Kim became one of the first members of Generation Life. She is now a mother of four. She shared about her adoption story and reflected on what it meant to be a mother.

Pastor Herb of Greater Exodus Church reminded everyone to come from a place to love in order to change hearts. Drawing from the story of Hannah in the Old Testament, prayed for a child and turned out to be one of the greatest prophets, Samuel. She would dedicate him to God.

Fr. Michael Moriarty concluded the rally with how he shared the fact that his mom chose life despite being an alcoholic and dedicated his priesthood to helping the poor in Kensington.

A blessed Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. Thank you for your yes to life. You’re heroes.

“You risk your heart every day to become a mom.” Fr. Mike Schmitz

ELECTION DECEPTION

The Democrats are pushing the idea of ‘mail-in’ ballots for this year’s elections.  But can we trust that our ballots will be counted or that they won’t be altered?  Please see the report below from Church Militant and please make an effort to vote in person to make sure your vote is counted!  

Ballot

TRANSCRIPT
Democrats are trying to steal the 2020 presidential election by pushing mail-in voting.

After several efforts to discredit President Donald Trump, the newest attempt to take the White House in November’s election is to implement mail-in voting.

Leftist billionaire George Soros, the Democratic National Committee and the political action committee promoting presidential candidate Joe Biden are all pushing to implement mail-in voting, claiming the Wuhan virus will prevent too many people from making it to the polls in November.

Five states — Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, Utah and Colorado — already hold elections almost entirely by mail and other states allow it in limited circumstances.

Elections Have Consequences; Vote Your Conscience 2020

ATTENTION PA VOTERS

In an effort to piggyback on a previous post from Ted Meehan, I want to break down some other ideas regarding what to do on June 2nd for the Pennsylvania primary and the 2020 General Election. This is going to be the biggest election since the Civil War era.

Vote in person

By now, many of you have heard about an effort to vote via mail. It’s a scam to lose your votes. Nancy Pelosi and her circle of pedophiles, swamp creatures, and godless communists will stop at nothing to remove President Donald Trump from office.

I can’t understand how people can stand outside to enter a supermarket or even an essential store to not wait in line to exercise their right to vote. Even Joe Gale fought this attempt. Inform your family members, community, and friends to not take part in this scam. VOTE IN PERSON!

The PA primary is Tuesday, June 2nd. The deadline to register for the primary is May 18th. Absentee ballot deadline is May 26th.

Volunteer

This should not only apply to PA voters, but everyone who lives in key states that can play a crucial role in bringing real changes to Washington.

Help those who are running for office. There are candidates for the statehouse and senate along with Congress. You’re looking at 88% of seats up for grabs. Democrats control the House of Representatives. As we have seen in the last two years, they have to regard to the protection of human life at the moment conception until natural death, religious freedom, and the stellar work the current administration has done. The magic number is 218 as the House of Representatives is made up of 435 from all fifty states.

Be sure to visit Susan B Anthony to learn how you can do your part.

BE BOLD

  1. Share about candidates who vow to put God, freedom, and life on the platform of public office. Some candidates, in particular, are: Kathy Barnette, Andy Meehan, and Nick Freitas.
  2. Share pro-life messages on your social media outlets
  3. Take part in Twitter campaigns
  4. Pray in front of abortion facilities
  5. Be willing to engage with dialogue with friends and family regarding the pro-life issue. Remember you have a duty to instruct the ignorant whose mind is blind.
  6. Hold your elected officials accountable in how they vote on all culture of life issues
  7. Recruit new members from your church, college campus, and even those in your Knights of Columbus, parents who take their kids to school, etc. Be sure to train them on the dos and don’ts while figuring out what talents they can bring.
  8. Encourage members of the clergy to be more vocal on pro-life issues.
  9. Write pro-life editorials for major newspapers
  10. Volunteer at pregnancy resource centers
  11. Donate money to pro-life charities

Pennsylvania Pro-Life Election Priorities

Below is a message from Ted Meehan of the PA Pro-Life Coalition on the upcoming elections this year,  and the actions we need to take to  protect the Sanctity of Life in Pennsylvania and in the USA. 

Priorities

We are in a strange time. Important election campaigns are taking place, but they are getting no media attention – and normal campaigning is impossible. So, we must do all we can to lay groundwork for success.

Priority NUMBER ONE is the re-election of President Trump. He does get media attention so I don’t think we will forget to vote for him. But make sure you do!

Priority Number Two in Pennsylvania is to elect Heather Heidelbaugh Attorney General.

– The current AG (Shapiro) will not enforce laws he doesn’t like. Abortion regulations to protect underage girls from human traffickers? Shapiro looks the other way. Parental consent violations? Shapiro dismisses them. The assault on marriage in Pennsylvania started with Shapiro. His ideological extremism motivates his official acts – not the Law.

Many people spend a lot of time and energy to enact laws to protect the Sanctity of Life. But if our Law Enforcement officers refuse to enforce these laws, they are useless in protecting Life.

If we were, by the grace of God, to overturn Roe v. Wade and prohibit abortion, a corrupt AG who refused to enforce that law could virtually reverse the rule of law – as Shapiro repeatedly does now.

Shapiro has sued the Little Sisters of the Poor to force them to pay for abortion and contraception. He is doing this right now – even after the Supreme Court of the United States has twice ruled that the Little Sisters are exempt from any such obligations.

The pro-life people of Pennsylvania must re-elect President Trump. But almost as important is to elect Heather Heidelbaugh AG.

So please begin spreading the word for Heather any way you can think of. Social Media, email blasts, blogs, Facebook, and word of mouth. Try to reach 5 new people each week. If you do, Heather will be our AG next January – and the Cause of Life will have a “new sheriff” in Harrisburg!

Find out more on Heather Heidelbaugh here .  A financial gift will be a huge help.  Thank you and God Bless each one!

Pardoned by Trump, Angela Stanton-King, Alveda King’s Goddaughter Now Running against Rep John Lewis: ‘This Isn’t the Selma Bridge, and Our Babies are Dying’

“I turned my life around. I have completely redeemed my life,” Angela Stanton-King, Candidate for US Congress

Carlos Garcia writes for The Blaze.  Voices for Life shares his report on Alveda King’s goddaughter, Angela Stanton-King who is running against Rep. John Lewis (D), Georgia  She opposes the Democrat’s pro-abortion policies.

“I turned my life around. I have completely redeemed my life,” Stanton-King said. “This A former reality show celebrity and author who was pardoned by President Donald Trump will face one of his loudest foes in Congress as she runs to replace Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.).

Stanton-King was convicted in 2004 on charges related to a car theft ring and she spent more than two years in prison for the crime, according to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.

The president pardoned her in February.

“Today, (Stanton-King) is a national best-selling author, widely acclaimed television personality, and proponent of criminal justice reform,” read a statement from the White House.

“She works tirelessly to improve reentry outcomes for people returning to their communities upon release from prison, focusing on the critical role of families in the process. This pardon is supported by Alveda King,” the statement added.
Stanton-King is the goddaughter of Alveda King, the pro-life activist.

The best-selling author said that she respects Lewis’ record of fighting for Civil Rights, but she opposes the Democratic party’s pro-abortion policies.

“I have the utmost respect for the contributions that he has made to black America,” Stanton-King said, “However, this isn’t the Selma bridge, and our babies are dying. It is time for war.”

Lewis has also been an outspoken opponent of Trump, and went as far as boycotting a Civil Rights event in 2017 because the president would be in attendance as well.

“This isn’t about replacing John Lewis, this is about picking up the torch and continuing the fight for Justice,” she tweeted.
