Pull up a chair in my domestic church and let's chat!

I have worn many labels (Not in any particular order): Catholic, Wife, Mom,Gramma, Doctor, Major, Soccer Mom, Military Wife, Professor, Fellow.

All of these filter my views of the world. I hope that like St. Monica, I can through prayer, words and example, lead my children and others to Faith.
"The important thing is that we do not let a single day go by in vain without putting it to good use for eternity"--Blessed Franz J├Ągerst├Ątter

Words of Wisdom for November 5, 2008

There is a lot of wisdom from Catholic bloggers today:

Greg Sisk captures my sentiments exactly

Jay Anderson gives us the next steps

Julie D sounds the call to soldier on.

The priest who celebrated Mass this morning is from Kenya. He said look at the media. The world is celebrating the election of another president of the United States. They would have celebrated, no matter who won. They are celebrating the success of American democracy. That said, he continued that there are many Americans who are very confused. People who seem to be very smart with advanced education and powerful positions do not see the stark reality of the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death. They cannot see that marriage is only between one man and one woman. They cannot see that children are gifts from God and are to be welcomed into our families. Therefore, we must not despair. We must be joyful so that we can be people of the Gospel, the Good News. We must be a light to shine on Truth and dispel the confusion.

Therefore, I will not mourn. From the words of today’s First Reading:

Do everything without grumbling or questioning,
that you may be blameless and innocent,
children of God without blemish
in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation,
among whom you shine like lights in the world,
as you hold on to the word of life,
so that my boast for the day of Christ may be
that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.

Although I think the laws have changed the culture and the culture promotes abortion (and I would like the laws to side with protecting life), we do not as of yet force women to go to an abortion clinic. All women can hear the truth in their hearts and make the right decision. It is for us to pray, to help, to educate, and to show a better way, regardless of the laws.
