I am a convert to the CC and love your blog. I just posted about it on mine. We meet every first Sat to pray for vocations here in Omaha at the Holy Family Shrine. I love priests so much, and I'm so grateful to and for the Church for being the ONE TRUE beacon to this dark world. I so appreciate all our priests do, especially those in smaller towns who have to be shepherds to more than one parish, with all the small-town politics and backbiting that exists. That can be quite a burden and very exhausting to a soul. Please pray for a priest friend of mine who battles daily all of that in a liberal diocese where he has been considered the 'odd one' for being Traditional and Orthodox, only wanting to do what is RIGHT. God bless all of you as you discern your call. You are all deserving of our respect, and our prayers daily. I have long sought in other faith communities for True Authority. Thank God, I found it where I didn't think it was, back in the Catholic Church. And now you all are committed to this Truth and the Magesterium. God bless and keep and protect everyone of you! Thank you for answering the call and for becoming the priests, the shepherd for flocks that need you!

I ask that you at Monastery and others to dedicate a rosary a day and also to fast once a week
so that we elect some good pro-life representatives. We are on the verge of
electing the most pro-abortion President ever(Mr. Obama). George Bush has his faults but he
is the most pro-life President we have ever had. He needs prayers too. Please do this. I am going to try do this. Pray for Sen. McCain.
And of course also pray for the situation in Georgia with Russia.

By the way, I want to thank you for becoming nuns.

Representative Chris Smith(a Catholic) from New Jersey has a very grim prognosis of what a President Obama would mean for the Pro-Life movement.
He said it would mean a complete reversal of all the gains and legislative accomplishments the movement has gained over these many years
and even referred to it as the “Waterloo” of the pro-life movement. We need many prayers and sacrifices.

Mr. Obama’s Pro-Life (National Right to Life) rating=
2005 0%,
2006 0%,
2007 0%

His Pro-Abortion (NARAL) rating=
2005 100%,
2006 100%,
2007 100%

Jill Stanek was a nurse who worked in a Chicago-area hospital where abortions were performed. Sometimes, babies would survive the abortions,
in which case the hospital policy was to just let them die. In her testimony before the Illinois Senate, she told about picking up a baby who had
been placed in a soiled linen closet and holding the child for 45 minutes until it died. In part, because of her testimony, a bill was introduced in the
Illinois legislature to protect and give medical attention to these infants.

Life Lies: Barack Obama & Born-Alive
By David Freddoso, National Review

In 2001, Senator Barack Obama was the only member of the Illinois senate to speak against a bill that would have recognized premature abortion survivors as “persons.” The bill was in response to a Chicago-area hospital that was leaving such babies to die. Obama voted “present” on the bill after denouncing it. (In Illinois present is the same as “no”) It passed the state Senate but died in a state house committee.

In 2003, a similar bill came before Obama’s health committee. He voted against it. But this time, the legislation was slightly different. This latter version was identical to the federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which by then had already passed the U.S. Senate unanimously (with a hearty endorsement even from abortion advocate Sen. Barbara Boxer) and had been signed into law by President Bush.

Sen. Obama is currently misleading people about what he voted against, specifically claiming that the bill he voted against in his committee lacked “neutrality” language on Roe v. Wade. The bill did contain this language. He even participated in the unanimous vote to put it in. But he voted
against the final bill anyway.

I read somewhere that the late Henry Hyde through his famous amendment may have saved a million lives. If he save only
one, would that be not worth it?

What does one innocent human life mean to God( not man, but God)?

Second Order Monastery of the Nuns of the Order of Preachers, Perpetual Rosary Monastery in Union City, New Jersey, popularly known as the Blue Chapel. This year, the four surviving nuns in this community had their monastery closed by the Holy See in cooperation with the Dominican provincial and the local bishop. One of the four nuns is already in a nursing home, unable to walk because of the results of diabetes. One transfiliated to Corpus Christi Dominican Monastery in Hunts Point in the Bronx, NY. Of the other two women, little is said; it is reported that these two left the premises this summer. One is in her seventies and the other in her nineties.
A note of interest: in lower Michigan, not far from Flint, two Dominican Nuns who professed in New Jersey at Union City, and left after the Second Vatican Council, have directed a small community for over thirty years, less than ten women. They began with literally nothing but donations. They remember the four surviving Perpetual Rosary Dominican nuns from Union City. Their monastery is of the Transfiguration on Mount Thabor, and they do have a website which I can't provide a link for, sorry. Yours in Christ.
