What is Hell really like? I really don’t know – and I hope never to find out. But I believe that it’s horrible beyond anything we can imagine, and I believe that it’s worse in the experience than in the telling.
That said, this talk makes it sound terrifying – and if it’s true that we cannot imagine how bad it is, how bad must it really be?
Pray for the conversion of sinners… Including you… Including me…
What is hell & what are the pains & experiences in that horrible place?
No, it’s your child’s body. The only body that’s yours that’s involved in abortion is the one designed to protect and nurture the person within you.
And you allow THAT body to be used by abortionists to make them a pile of money. You are selling your body for their benefit alone.
There’s a word for that, and it’s not a very nice word.
I pray for you that you will wake up and realize that. Take your body back…
Though Planned Parenthood claims that women depend on them for prenatal care, Live Action investigators had an incredibly hard time finding facilities that offered it—though they found plenty offering abortions. Live Action contacted all 41 Planned Parenthood affiliates where undercover recording is permitted by state law, and only 5 facilities out of 97 said they provided prenatal care.

We could all learn something from Planned Parenthood, as attested to in this video. And we can rest assured that they have protection as a top priority.

Back in the late 1990’s (or early 2000’s), I was asked to write a song for the Rosaries For Life organization in my parish. So I did. Not sure they were crazy about the style, but most people liked it.
Anyway, I thought that it would be appropriate for this week – Anniversary of Roe V. Wade and the annual Walk For Life events.
Hope you like it. If not, that’s OK, too.
Here are 10 big reasons why @PPact doesn’t deserve another cent of taxpayer money. It’s time to defund the abortion corporation.

If you want to maintain your Catholic faith and still be pro-choice, here is a list of all of the ways you can do it:
Now, here’s the truth:
Faithful Catholicism and pro-choice beliefs and lifestyle are two completely mutually exclusive things. One, Catholicism, worships God and the other, abortion support, worships Satan. There is no middle ground – only self delusion leading to spiritual death.
Light and darkness cannot occupy the same space.
What you “feel” doesn’t matter – only truth matters, and truth does not change.
That’s a big one. Many Protestants (Most? All?) do not believe in Purgatory, largely because the word is not present in the Bible. “If Jesus didn’t say it, I don’t believe it,” is the reasoning behind the disdain for much of Catholic teaching.
We would do well to remember that “nothing unclean shall enter the kingdom of Heaven.” Rev 21:27 How many of us are pristine when we die? If I were to die right now, I wouldn’t be completely clean. I need some sprucing up.
If I go directly to Heaven, I don’t need cleaning. If I go to Hell, that becomes my permanent residence and no amount of cleaning is going to get me out. What’s left?
Did Jesus really not say anything about Purgatory? Not at all. While He never said the word “Purgatory”, He certainly described it…
There are two Bible passages where Jesus taught the reality of purgatory: Matthew 5:25-26 and Matthew 12:32.
The suffering we go through may seem meaningless, but it’s not. Or, rather, it doesn’t have to be. By joining our suffering with that of Jesus, we become partners with Him in the salvific act.
We read in Colossians 1:24: “Now I [Paul] rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I complete what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church.”
That’s not to say that Jesus missed a spot. He didn’t. But it DOES tell us that, when we join our suffering with His (offer it up), we can benefit others in the Body of Christ (The Church). We can even offer it in penance for our own sins.
1 Pet. 2:19-21 “Whenever anyone bears the pain of unjust suffering because of consciousness of God, that is a grace. . . Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in his footsteps”.
We are to follow His example and join our suffering with His. We are to take up our cross daily: Matt. 10:38 “Whoever does not take up his cross and follow after me is not worthy of me”.
Again, we are to follow His example.
But unless we embrace that suffering and pain and join it with the suffering sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, it is simply suffering for suffering’s sake. Worthless.
“There is a hospital that I have occasion to drive by quite often, and whenever I do, I feel a great sadness because within those walls there is so much wasted suffering.” Archbishop Fulton Sheen
Join your suffering to that of Jesus. Don’t waste it. Give it a purpose. Make your own suffering count for something other than just to give you a reason to feel sorry for yourself, or others to feel sorry for you.
Make your suffering count. Make it mean something.
Give your suffering a purpose.
