"You aim at a devout life, dear Philothea, because as a Christian you know that such devotion is most acceptable to God's Divine Majesty," says St. Francis de Sales in his book "Introduction to the Devout Life".
And we can all be Philotheas, as St. Francis notes: "I have made use of a name suitable to all who seek the devout life, Philothea meaning one who loves God."
The Catholic Church
is so stinkin’ mean! Just watch the video below to see how the Church is portrayed as anti-human rights! Those rotten Catholics have failed to ratify a
whole bunch of treaties that are simply immoral. (Oops. I wasn’t supposed to
point out that last fact, was I?)
This information came
to my attention via an email update from C-Fam with
the subject line “Vatican Out at the UN?”. Austin Ruse, president of C-Fam,
is an arresting subject line but that is precisely what radical anti-Catholic
pro-aborts are trying to do as we speak.
nasty video is the beginning of a global campaign by "Catholics" for
Choice, the Center for Reproductive Rights, and Planned Parenthood to strip the
Vatican of its seat at the UN.
do they want the Vatican out of the UN? Because the Vatican is the number one voice
for the unborn child and the natural family at the UN. Without the Vatican, it
is all too possible there would be a universal right to abortion and the family
would have been defined out of existence.
the Vatican stands all alone. You ought to see those brave priests stand alone
against the powers of the earth.
was founded 16 years ago when the Papal Nuncio to the United Nations made it
known there needed to be a full time office of Catholic laymen at the UN. You
see, the Vatican always wants the help of pro-life groups.
small number have answered that call and started C-FAM precisely to defend the
unborn child, the family and the Church from anti-Catholic radicals that work
in and through the UN.
am I talking about?
for Choice, formerly Catholics for a Free Choice, exists for the single purpose
of undermining the teachings of the Church and to encourage the killing of
unborn babies. Ditto for the Center for Reproductive Rights, a group of lawyers
advancing the culture of death globally.
Mr. Ruse also notes
that the fight costs money, and C-Fam is in need of funds to raise a shortfall
of $100,000 by the end of the year. Donations are gratefully accepted at www.c-fam.org/contributeif you are so inclined.
