This past Friday was a glorious day when Americans from all walks of life marched in our Capital to defend the right to life and the personhood of the unborn. The overwhelming participation of young people was astounding holding a great promise for America.

On January 27, 2017, hundreds of thousands marched in Washington, D.C. for the 44th annual March for Life to protest and make reparation for the sin of abortion. While the cynics say that Roe v. Wade is settled law and unchangeable, the multitudes that marched from the Washington Monument, up to Capitol Hill and to the steps of the Supreme Court were not deterred.

Members of the American TFP and America Needs Fatima along with the Holy Choirs of Angels Marching Band playing bagpipes, brass, fifes, and drums, joined the marchers. The music was upbeat and firm, encouraging those marching to strengthen their resolve to defeat abortion.

Sister organizations from other countries joined: Aktion SOS Leben (Germany), Irish Society for Christian Civilisation (Ireland), Droit de Naître (France), Tradición y Acción (Colombia), Foundation for the Protection of Human Life from Conception (Netherlands), and Krikščionškosios Kultūros Gynimo Asociacja (Lithuania)

 

To Make America Great, Turn Back to God

Our volunteers distributed copies of their pro-life statement, “To Make America Great, Turn Back to God,” to the multitudes passing by. While acknowledging the massive conservative win last November, the statement listed those values and principles that must now be defended and promoted to take advantage of the victories.

The statement listed the demands and hopes we wished to express for the conversion of America.

“Today, thanks be to God, the conservative vote won the White House, Senate and House, and a record number of governorships and statehouse majorities. This reality has brought relief and awakened great hopes. Above all, conservatives were buoyed by the promises of President Donald Trump who assured them they would not be forgotten and that they would have a voice. Now is the time to fulfill these promises. American conservative voters must not be betrayed.”

“What moved America’s forgotten voters on November 8 was a shattered order that has affected all aspects of life. As was repeated during the election cycle, the whole system is broken, its liberal and permissive vision for society has failed and voters are desperately looking for solutions.”
A series of demands were listed beginning with:

“It must be a moral order in which leaders fearlessly do everything possible to advance the cause of life, the traditional family and Christian morals. If the nation is to prosper, it needs to return to that moral code based on the Ten Commandments and natural law that made America great. People must no longer be afraid to affirm this and stand up to a politically correct culture that claims there is no right and wrong by blurring all definitions. Without this essential component, America will not recover.”

Among America’s forgotten voters are those who fight for the most vulnerable—the unborn—demanding for them the fundamental right to life.

“Now is the time to bleach out the stain on America’s honor, its great sin against God: Roe v. Wade,” the statement concluded.

 

 

Vice President Mike Pence Speaks

Vice President Mike Pence spoke at the march, greatly increasing the enthusiasm of the pro-lifers. For them, it was a sign that their voice has a presence in the current administration.

“I’m deeply humbled to be the first vice president of the United States to ever have the privilege to attend this historic gathering,” Vice President Pence stated.

“Be assured, be assured,” he concluded, “we will not grow weary, we will not rest until we restore a culture of life in America for ourselves and our posterity. Thank you and God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.”

 

 

2017: Making Abortion Unthinkable

Entering 2017, the pro-life movement needs to redouble its efforts in the fight for life and the family. It must incessantly hold President Donald Trump’s administration to its pro-life promises. There can be no compromise, no slackening, and no apathy.

During this centennial year of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, let us ask the Mother of God for her intercession in the fight against abortion.

February 23

 

Prayer is the conversation
of a child with its Father; of a subject with his King;
of a servant with his Lord; of a friend with the Friend
to whom he confides
all his troubles and difficulties.

St. Polycarp

Polycarp, a holy man and bishop of Smyrna, was part of the group of early bishops. When heresy arose in Asia, violence toward Catholics arose with it, and Polycarp was persuaded by his friends to go into hiding.

Eventually Polycarp was found and arrested. When his persecutors arrived at his hideout, he went to them and served them a meal, asking for a short time to pray before being taken away. Polycarp was sent to trial, where his captors tempted him with freedom and tried to convince him to denounced Our Lord. “Fourscore and six years I have served Him and He hath done me no wrong,” he said, “how then can I blaspheme my King and my Savior?”

Soon after this, in the year 155, Polycarp was burnt at the stake – though there was no odor of burning flesh: instead a smell of incense was in the air. When the fire seemed to do him no harm, a spear was thrust into his side, killing him. A dove flew out of the wound, and Polycarp’s blood quenched the fire, causing part of his body to remain intact. However, his remains were later burned to ash because the heretics feared other Catholics would revere the body as a relic.

Cause of Our Joy

We are well aware Our Lady is constantly working and spreading her graces as we travel to homes with the statue of Our Lady of Fatima. On a recent visit in south Texas, we were surprised to see Our Lady’s visit to one household as the culmination of a beautiful story of grace, nine months in the making.  

Our hosts had gathered friends and neighbors from their small town on a sunny afternoon to welcome the statue of Our Lady of Fatima. As the program progressed, the lady of the house asked to tell a story about a certain grace she had received.

Two years ago, her daughter had suffered a miscarriage in her first pregnancy, which had a devastating effect on the family. This past year, the same daughter again became pregnant.  However, rather than being a cause for rejoicing, the family was apprehensive due to what had happened previously. Our hostess then explained how she and her husband vowed to take a dozen roses at the beginning of each month of the pregnancy to Our Lady’s shrine at the local parish, asking the Queen of Heaven for a safe delivery.

The florist of the town, upon hearing the story, took great care to make an extra-beautiful bouquet in honor of our Blessed Mother.

For nine months, the couple was faithful in bringing the flowers and asking Our Lady’s powerful help. To their great surprise, the final time coincided with our visit with the statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

Our hostess began to cry tears of joy in telling the story, so honored was she to have such a clear sign of the intercession of the Mother of God. She then told that the doctors all gave reports of a healthy pregnancy, and the child was due any day now. The last bouquet of roses, lovingly arranged by the town’s florist, was placed at the feet of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima in thanksgiving for a healthy pregnancy and their soon to be newborn grandchild.

We later learned that a healthy boy was born two days after the visit. Not only did Our Lady grant new life to a family who was so eager to welcome it, but she also restored the hope and strengthened the faith of this family and all who were gathered to share their joy. This easily brought to mind one of the beautiful titles of Our Lady from the Litany of Loreto: Causa nostrae letitiae, Cause of Our Joy. May Our Lady bring to the fullness of joy all who invoke her with confidence.
