Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition Monthly First Friday Life Chain Brings out Three Dozen Prayer Warriors

Pic 4

Three dozen pro-life citizens were present for the First Friday Life Chain on July 3rd in front the Warminster Planned Parenthood.  These prayer warriors stood on both sides of Louis Drive peacefully praying and giving witness to all who rode by as well as all who went into this killing center.

One  couple who joined our vigil told us they found out about the Life Chain while at a nearby diner.  They said they were speaking with the waitress about the abortion center in the area and she told them about the Monthly Life Chain.

After an hour of silent witness, the Life Chain ended with a prayer written by Sandy Slater and the singing of God Bless America.  Sandy is the president of the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition.

This Life Chain, which is sponsored by the Coalition, is held on the First Friday of each month from 9:30 – 10:30 am.  We hope over the months that many more people will join with us to pray for an end to abortion at this facility and other facilities in Southeast Pennsylvania as well as across the country.

We Don’t Need Cowards or Politicians. . .We Need BISHOPS!

The following is from Judie Brown of American Life League.

Shepherds lead from the front; goatherds lead from behind. 

There has been a lot of commentary about Bishop Robert Barron’s insistence that the laity — and not the bishops — should be providing clarity during times of crisis.  

So let me give you a vivid example of the rank cowardice we have among the Catholic bishops today. 

What follows is a statement made in May 2020 from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops which — if they actually published something like this — would give pro-life Catholics across America a great deal of courage:

“Our hearts are wounded for the many souls mourned as African American communities across the nation are being disproportionately infected with and dying from the impact of Planned Parenthood. We raise our voices to urge state and national leaders to examine the generational and systemic structural conditions that make Planned Parenthood especially deadly to African American communities.

“We stand in support of all communities struggling under the weight Planned Parenthood has had not only on their physical health, but on their livelihoods, especially front line medical and sanitation workers, public safety officers, and those in the service industry. We are praying fervently for an end to abortion, and for physical health for all, and emotional healing amongst all who have lost loved ones.”

The problem? 

They never issued a statement going after Planned Parenthood or abortion.  They issued this statement about COVID-19.

If the Catholic bishops can be so adamantly clear during a pandemic that has killed 121,000 Americans, why can’t they be just as strong (if not STRONGER) in the face of the 2,363 abortions committed every day in America?!

Now it has been 103 days since the COVID-19 lockdowns began.  COVID-19 has claimed the lives of 121,000 Americans.  In 103 days, the abortion industry has murdered 271,508 babies.

This, Bishop Barron, is the problem.  We don’t need cowards.  We don’t need more politicians.  We need BISHOPS unafraid to live and defend the GOSPEL. 

How much longer will the Catholic bishops be silent in the face of the greatest sin this nation has ever committed in the eyes of God? 

If Barron is asking the laity to lead, then the laity is begging our Catholic bishops to ENFORCE CANON 915.

Is Fatherhood Essential? Reflecting on Father’s Day

It goes without showing that our culture has been going down a slow but declining drain.

We have seen an increase in crime, fatherless homes, sexual promiscuity, secularism, and even incarcerations. Why? It’s all because of the lack of father figures in the lives of children.

In 2003, Jennifer Schwartz from Penn State University, did a study on what is the cause of so many incarceration among children. She discovered that there has been a missing compartment in the household, a father figure.

As it turned out, Schwartz discovered what the complete problem was for these many young teens are imprisoned. They had no father in the household. Read more here.

Fathers Neglect

It appears that it can be applied today. Pope Francis once talked about a very dangerous plague in our culture known as the “throwaway culture”. This throwaway culture can be applied to the abortion industry.

Fathers to be are taught that they do not have to take responsibility for their pre-marital affairs with another girl. This is the most dangerous thing to say to a father. Even fathers regret their lost children in the hyperactive culture of death. Women’s rights achieved this victory when they intoxicated masculinity just to tear down men with the venom of feminism.

A man’s job in this culture is to stand against the waves of modernism. The father’s first and foremost job is to protect his family. Without his protection, the family is vulnerable to the tyranny of the world.

Man Up

We are living in hard times due to weak men. I see many wimps walk their girlfriends into the abortion facility every time I am on the sidewalk. It infuriates me, yet I have to offer it up to God for him to awaken his senses. However, it must make us stronger in order to create good times.

Men, throughout history, have risen to the occasion. Whether it were to do their duty to fight, provide, and even support. Now it would be the time for brave God-fearing men to step up to the plate to end the culture of death.

Men, it’s time to make and take a stand. The culture of modernism, secularism, and even relativism can end when you become more involved with your faith by leading your children and family to Christ. It will be a challenge, yes. However, when you place God first, you will move mountains and leap over the toughest hurdles.

There is a solution. Men, it’s time to step out on the sidewalk and pray. Visit Sidewalks Servants and Sign Up.

MAN UP!

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.

Voices for Life Prayer Campaign: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez #onesoulatatime

Voices for Life prayer campaign continues into the 4th week.

AOC

This week please join us in praying for NY Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Ocasio-Cortez has been the subject of some memes that attack her intelligence. I know because I have neighbors that love using her as a punchline. Here, she is the subject of prayer for her to open her eyes as she supported the murder of 1/3 of her peers. When I did my research on her, it has occurred to me that she is just two months older than me

I chose her for three reasons:

  1. She is originally from Venezuela where socialism is drying the very bone of a once productive country.
  2. She has made a poor metaphor about abortion
    1. Comparing abortion to dog-breeding
  3. She is unapologetically pro-abortion
    1. Population Control
    2. Slams Georgia Lawmakers for Abortion Ban
    3. Force Americans to pay for abortion with taxpaying dollars

Let us pray for Representative Ocasio-Cortez’s:

  • That God sends many Christians across her path to share the Gospel
  • That the light of Christ sets her free from the deceit and darkness of satan
  • That she falls to her knees and surrenders her life to Jesus Christ, her only hope for salvation
  • That the Holy Spirit shows her overwhelming proof that abortion is murder and
  • That she becomes an advocate for mothers and their unborn babies.

Please join me this week in remembering Representative Ocasio-Cortez in your daily prayers.

Now, please join me in prayer.

Fount of Mercy Prayer
Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit, we come to You with a contrite heart and with faith for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that You will give her the grace of conversion. O blood and water that gushed forth from the heart of Jesus, as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You. Enlighten this mind that is ensnared in ignorance and sin and darkness. Bring her into the fold of the Holy Catholic Church. Amen.

“Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.”  James 1:21
