Heroic News: “MTV “16 and Pregnant” Couple Stands Strong Against Abortion” plus 2 more

heroicnews

Pro-abortion activists fight for abortion throughout pregnancy for any reason—no exceptions. Their fundamental argument centers on women’s health.
Parents in England have released a beautiful photo of their daughter, born prematurely at 24 weeks, with the hopes that it will demonstrate the humanity of unborn babies who can be legally killed in abortions in the U.K.

Weekly Prayer Reflection for Summer
“God so loved the world that He gave His only son, so that everyone who believes in Him might not perish but may have eternal life.”
John 3:16
September 14, 2014
Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross
Dear Friends,
The Cross is around us. We cannot avoid it. We see this very clearly in the battle against the spread of Ebola. The families, villages, and individuals who are afflicted or threatened by the virus have had their lives changed, and bear a cross of suffering imposed upon them by this epidemic.
Around his neck, Pope Francis wears a cross on a pendant—but it is a cross with a difference. In place of Jesus Christ dying, it shows an image of the Good Shepherd embracing the one lost sheep with the ninety-nine sheep in the background. I see this as indicating that to reach out and help others, to seek to find and help the lost, is truly to take up and embrace the Cross. Is not this what we see in the battle to overcome Ebola? We see the heroic efforts of doctors and health workers to bring aid to those suffering and prevent the spread of the virus. These workers freely take up the Cross by their dedication, exposing themselves to danger, sacrificing for the sake of others, as Jesus Christ did when He took up the Cross.

da9a4-jcstfrnk
Lord Jesus Christ, You call us to be saints along the way of the Cross. Cleanse us with pardon of Your Cross. Instruct us in the school of Your Cross. Arm us for the battle of holiness by the might of Your Cross. Bring us to the victory of your Cross, and seal us in the Kingdom of Heaven among the servants of Your Cross, with the Father, and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Heroic News: “Preemie Twins Born 1 Week Before Legal Abortion Limit Miraculously Survive” plus 2 more

heroicnews
Just one day after the parents of a premature baby in England released a picture of their newborn in the hopes of pushing back against legal late-term abortions comes another amazing story. In this new story, the parents of premature twins are talking about what happened to their children since they were born just one week ahead of Britain’s legal abortion limit.
An overwhelming number of young girls and women are having abortions. Currently, girls as young as eight are indulging in active sex leading to pregnancies, some of which end up being unsafely aborted.
Cardinal Francis George, head of the Catholic archdiocese of Chicago, said the levers of power in government, education, entertainment, and media are enforcing a “public creed,” a “fake church” that requires all citizens to approve of gay marriage and related sexual anomalies or be punished by the State, just “as Christians and Jews are fined for their religion in countries governed by Sharia law.”

Spirit and Life: Remembering Aborted Victims


In a world where possessions and power are often valued far above persons, it is important that the pro-life faithful pray in solidarity to remember all the unborn babies -- the real treasure of humanity -- killed since the Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion in this country.

This Saturday, September 13, Human Life International supports The National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children. Last year's inaugural event marked the 25th anniversary of the solemn burial of the discarded remains of 1,500 aborted children discovered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

I encourage you to participate at your local memorial service, many of which will be held at the gravesites or designated memorial sites of aborted victims. When we gather in His name, our intercessory prayer honors the innocent victims - the living and the dead - in an effort to help us as a nation heal, forgive, and bring this devastation to an end.

Legalized abortion in America over the several decades is surely our country's greatest tragedy. 
In the Sermon on the Mount, Our Lord brings us renewed hope from our mourning and weeping in this vale of tears:

"Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted."

Our united prayers can help comfort our brothers and sisters who have lost children to abortion. Our united prayers for our aborted little brothers and sisters can testify to their humanity. Our united prayers, through the Holy Spirit, can turn hardened hearts, especially of those who work in the abortion industry, into compassionate hearts on fire to protect all life from conception to natural death.

Pray to our Heavenly Father for the grace to oppose the evil of abortion and the conviction to protect all innocent life, especially unborn children. Help us to remember all those who, made in your image, have died, commending them to your mercy.


Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Shenan J. Boquet
President, Human Life International


P.S. This second annual memorial event, organized by Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life, and the Pro-Life Action League, is a day of services
planned in over 111 communities across the United States. I encourage you to take part in your community's services, or simply pray at your local gravesite or memorial dedicated to the unborn.

Archbishop Ramon Arguelles and HLI President Father Boquet in Lipa, Philippines this week.

Representatives from Human Life International are among thousands of faithful pilgrims journeying to holy ground in the Philippines' Diocese of Lipa for the 11th National Days of Prayer with Mary.

Archbishop of Lipa Ramon Arguelles invited HLI President Father Shenan Boquet, along with Dr. Ligaya Acosta, regional director for Asia and Oceania, to attend the Marian pilgrimage conference held September 7-12. The annual event attracts a throng of Marian devotees who participate in processions to regional shrines and churches, including the Carmelite Monastery of Lipa, the site where Our Blessed Mother is said to have appeared to a nun on several occasions.

From Ocean to Ocean

by Father Peter West with Chris Morales

Ever since the From Ocean to Ocean Campaign in Defense of Life began in the Summer of 2012 in Vladivostok, Russia, the pilgrimage has encouraged the faithful to seek the intercession of Our Blessed Mother and has implored prayers from members of the Church, especially consecrated religious. In keeping with this mission, the pilgrim icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa arrived in California with a commitment to visit area monasteries and increase devotion to Our Lady of Czestochowa.

Prayers are paramount for the success of this historic From Ocean to Ocean Campaign in Defense of Life campaign. The Pilgrim Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa has lifted the hearts of hundreds, if not thousands, of consecrated religious in her North American pilgrimage, as she had in Europe and will continue to do as she continues her peregrination.
