They pray for us, let's pray for them!

Fight FOCA

Interested in learning more about what we can do stop FOCA? (the "Freedom of Choice" Act President-Elect Obama has pledged to sign once he enters office that will open to doors to abortion in all stages and remove further rights for the unborn)
Visit to learn more and sign the petition to help stop this horrid legislation.

Just in time for Christmas

New ads appearing on buses in D.C., just in time for Christmas. Holy cow.

Asia's Gender Imbalance

Here's an alarming article about the gender imbalance in Asia. The attack upon women is being made manifest more and more.

Panda Ponderings...

This is random but if you haven't seen the movie, "Kung Fu Panda" you might find it interesting.
I am usually not a big fan of animated movies but I really like the story of this one as I think many of us can relate to "Po" a big, fat panda with big dreams but much fear inside.

Po dreams of becoming a brave Kung Fu warrior but because all he sees are his faults and failings, he spends his days working in his dad's noodle shop, all the while languishing for something more. Something happens one day that changes his life (I won't tell you the whole story in case you haven't seen it) but Po has to look within himself and see what is really inside.

I think a lot of us are like that, we look at ourselves with all our limitations, faults, struggles and failings and we say, "me? become a saint? that's impossible." So we spend our days hoping for something more but never daring to give our lives completely over to God and His divine plan for us. …

In short, we are all going to hell in a hand basket – at first glance.Thomas Jefferson said that for a democracy to function, the voting populace needs to be virtuous. If an American ignores abortion, Iraq, Iran, ecology, education and the host of questions that need to be factored in to decide how to vote, and he simply votes for the candidate who will do him the most good economically, then that American is not being virtuous. Politics is about the common good. Who voted Tuesday for the common good with a well-informed conscie…

Election Musings....

Well, as we all know, the United States of America has elected a new President. Here is what some people in the Church are saying about it:

Pope's message to President-Elect Obama

Certain Bishops from around the country

Other Catholic leaders

I was listening yesterday to Catholic talk radio and people were calling in, lamenting the election results and feeling frustrated and down, considering that the US just elected an open and ardent pro-abortion president and few people seem to really notice or care. And though the hosts of the show validated the feelings of these callers, they made a couple of good points that I would like to share with you (not that you asked, it's just my unsolicited advice!)

First of all, the hosts were saying that change begins within ourselves. All of the exterior conflict we see in the world is just a manifestation of the conflict within the heart of individuals. Yes, we complain about a lack of peace and death in our world, and rightfully so, however, ho…
