August To-Do List

Hard to believe that it is August, and we’re more than half way through the summer.

The 8th month of the year can serve as a time to get in much needed family vacation before school is back in session. Sadly, the pandemic has put everyone’s plans on hold. Some are still unsure due to the unprecedented times.

The good news is Voices for Life has a to-do list throughout the month that can help you channel your Covid-19 frustrations in helping to advance the pro-life message. This list is applicable for your daily pro-life conviction.

  1. See Trump Card

It should come as no surprise that Dinesh D’Sousa, an immigrant of India, is not done defending the core principles of America. For the last eight years, he has been on the New York Times bestseller’s list, been falsely convicted for fraud, and has produced documentaries that have been game changers. His latest project, “Trump Card” is slated to be released on Friday, August 7th. Due to the temporary closing of movie theaters, you can view the documentary on-demand.

He played a pivotal role in exposing Hillary Clinton’s past which helped Donald Trump become the 45th President of the United States with “Hillary’s America”.

In addition, his most recent book United States of Socialism, is out now. To make your purchase, visit here.

2. Holy Hour/Mass for Life

Many states have masses back in session (with restrictions). Some of the faithful should be encouraged to host a Holy Hour for an end to abortion. St. Teresa of Calcutta once believed that if every Catholic made a weekly Holy Hour, we would see an end to abortion. So what are you waiting for? Even if you can’t bring one to you church, make one on your accordance.

3. Take part in vigils in your community

Connect with your local pro-life coalition and find out about vigil locations and times. Pray with your family, college, or even church group. Create a sign that advertises free help with contact information.

4. Host a pro-life committee meeting in your church

Gather people in your parish or church and discuss ways you can help get the pro-life message to your community all around with another pivotal election approaching.

5. Donate to pro-life charity

Give anything you have to advance many pro-life groups making a difference. Some groups include: Generation Life, The Culture Project, St. Raymond Nonnatus Foundation, Guiding Star, and Susan B Anthony List to name a few.

6. Work for Susan B Anthony List

The Susan B Anthony List is gearing up to help reach out to voters as the 2020 elections are coming very soon. They are hiring in many battleground states. To learn more, visit here.

7. Purchase Stork: Sowing Season

An indie author recently came out with an amazing book that promotes a pro-life message. To order your copy, visit here. It will make an excellent read in your backyard with a cold drink or while you’re catching rays at the beach.

8. Sign up for 40 Days for Life

The 40 Days for Life campaign begins on Wednesday, September 23rd and ends the weekend before the General Election. The spring campaign was interrupted with the pandemic. Now, with many states putting this phenomenon behind, it is time to go all in to save lives, pray for the workers, help moms choose life, and make a difference in your community.

9. Sidewalk Servants

Even though we’re a long way from the next 40 Days for Life campaign, there are babies being murdered every day. Your presence for at least an hour two during the week will make an impact on the abortion industry. Learn more about sidewalk servants here. Consider starting one in your community.

Paid Opportunity to Knock On Doors For the Election

The following is from an email blast sent by Fr. Frank Pavone.

I have some exciting news from our friends at The Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), a key political pro-life group.

As you may know, they are longtime friends and allies of ours in the effort to elect pro-life candidates and inform pro-life voters.

Right now, they are looking for people willing to go door-to-door in their community to a targeted list of voters to ask them some simple questions and give them some helpful information to equip them for voting.

SBA List will train those who want to do this, provide the talking points and the information, and provide the specific, pre-selected homes to visit.

Those who do this are paid $10-$15 per hour depending on state and are reimbursed $0.30/mile for their travels. Hours are flexible (up to 40 hours per week). Other incentives are offered. 

Participants must be 16 or older, able to abide by strict daily reporting requirements, and in harmony with a pro-life mission.

You may learn more and sign up at https://www.sba-list.org/join-field-team. If you have further questions you can contact Laurie Lee at 501-258-6353 or Laurie@SBAListField.org.

The target states right now are the following, and if you know people in some of these other states who may also be interested, please feel free to pass this email on to them!

Rehuamnize International Encounter Contest Extended

The following is from Maria Oswalt of Rehumanize International regarding the organization’s annual conference and creative contest.

 

Rehumanzie

If you were worried about missing the submission deadline for this year’s edition of our Create | Encounter art contest and magazine, worry no more! We’ve extended the deadline, so the submission window will now close this Friday, July 10. The judges and I can’t wait to see what powerful pieces you create this year. With everything that’s happened in 2020 — combined with quarantine, which has given many people more time to develop their creative skills — I know we’re going to have a (nonviolently) killer magazine this year. Once the submission window closes, the judges will take time to review and rank the pieces, and winners will be announced on July 31st.

For more information, submission guidelines, and to view past winners visit: www.rehumanizeintl.org/create-encounter.

Blogger’s Note: Join Rehumanzie during their virtual conference held on Saturday August 29th. To register, visit here.

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.

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
