Undocumented

As we know, on Ash Wednesday Cardinal Mahony told his clergy not to obey any new legislation that would make institutions check to see if clients are "legals."

Also, Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington, D.C., has cited "Whatever you do to the least of My brethren, that you do unto Me" as a reason for helping "illegals."

Have certain parallels ever occurred to these Cardinals -- for instance, that babies in the womb carry no documents to support their presence among us? That the babies are on a journey, in the trackless dark, to an unfamiliar new world? That the babies are completely destitute and totally dependent on others? That people ignore, stereotype, dehumanize, lie about, hate, betray and refuse to help preborn babies?

And has it ever occurred to these Cardinals that it is "legal" (but an unjust law is no law at all, the Church teaches us) to KILL, and BARBARICALLY SO, the undocumented babies in the womb as they struggle to reach their destination among us?

These parallels must not have occurred to the Cardinals. If they had, surely by now their Eminences would have told their clergy to protect and save the little babies.

Surely the Cardinals long since would have taken the lead and mustered their clergy and laity to stop business as usual and take prayerful and peaceful but bold, actual steps to overcome and stop the MASS KILLINGS of BABIES by the TENS OF MILLIONS.

Surely the Princes of the Church would have long ago irrevocably cut all ties with politicians who defy the Church and protect, fund and facilitate the mass killings.

So if these ideas have not occurred to the Cardinals, it must be up to us to plant them in their minds and hearts. Blogging, snail mail and pickets can do that. So let us help them see babies in the womb as truly among "the least of My brethren."

So true! I did email the tidings after the cardinals announcement.
The response I recieved by a Deacon was -yes the cardinal is very much interested in spiritual poverty but dont forget that injustice is also spiritual poverty. I emailed back that I was speaking of the state of souls not a state of government, and if the cardinal wants to do something about injustice whay doesnt he use his same militancy to fight abortion on demand without waiting periods-no responce was forthcoming.

What will you say to HIM?

When you stand before Our Lord and Savior, and He asks your what you did when His Church was being violently attacked at the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Religious Education Congress, what will you say to Him?

Once again, the speakers list for this Congress is like a who’s who of the dissenter’s roster for the America. Among the more notorious of these speakers are:

Scott Appleby, Dr. Tom Beaudoin, Rev. Michael Crosby, Rev. John Cusick, Msgr. Ray East, Rev. Richard Fragomeni, Edwina Gatley, Greer Gordon, Thomas Groome, David Haas, Dr. Diana Hayes, Rev. Brian Massingale, Rev. James Martin, Dr. Megan McKenna, Fr. Thomas Reese, S.J. , and Rev. Dick Sparks. This is just a partial list of the most notorious speakers!

Once again, the “Concerned Roman Catholics of America” will be conducting a prayerful demonstration, and passing out flyers that attempt to educate those in attendance as to exactly what kind of teachings they are being subjected to.

We need more volunteers to help in this effort!

Come and join us on Saturday, April 1st as we stand up for His Church and its teachings. If you do, you will at least be able to say to Him when the time comes that you tried!

We will be in front of the Congress entrance from 9:00 AM to around 6:00 PM. Come and join us in the “Church Militant”. We firmly desire that all participants have Her Holy Rosary in their hands at all times!

The Congress takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center, 800 West Katella Ave., Anaheim, CA on the south side of Katella between Katella and Euclid.

Please let us know if you are anyone you know are planning to join us because this will help us to determine how many flyers we need to have printed. We very much need a volunteer who speaks fluent Spanish! We will meet outside the main ticket entrance.

For further information, call CRCOA at: 714-491-2284, E-mail us at: crcoa@earthlink.net, fax us at: 714-772-5075, or go to our Website at: crcoa.org.

Alice,

If you knew the kinds of teachings and teachers the Deacon candidates must endure, you would not be surprised at the kinds of answers you get from those in the chancery!

Remember when Operation Rescue was gaining steam in Southern California and Mahony banned rescuers from using Archdiocesan facilities of any kind to stage their pre-Rescue rallies and operations.

Why wasn't he encourage Catholics -- priests and lay people -- to break the law to save the unborn from certain death?

I wonder if the same Cardinals consider the fact that these illegal criminals drive down the wages of the working poor not to mention the welfare burden. Naw, that would take thinking some other way other than a lapdog Democrat. If you have never done, check out the Biship's legislative agenda over at the USCCB.org website. Their agenda is open borders and welfare for all. A policy that would result in probably a 50% immigration rate from Mexico instead of the current 10%. The irresponsible Bishops think money grows on trees, its not like they have to earn their own money or have a clue how to run their finances in their own diocese, so how would they know?

Looks like the liberals are even more "tolerant" to these folks:

I cannot believe it, I am sure pro-abortion canidate is more welcome in the churches of the diocese of Orange than these folks.

Dear Wayne,

Thanks for providing the link to the recent OC Register blogspot posts about St. Mary's by the Sea Parish in Huntington Beach.

Sounds as if the parish still, amazingly, plans to expel 55 Catholics who wish to keep kneeling after the Agnus Dei.

A situation worth keeping track of.

Quintero,

Thanks for all you are doing not only for our Congress efforts, but for the much abused mystical Body of Christ.

Well, this is what you get when you have a majority of congregants that are "bench warmers;" folks who do not attend bible study and do not know that that the book of Romans is a basic guideline for the Christian living in the world. If they read Sacred Scriptutre they'd and find that the world is not divided between rich & poor but divivded between good and evil. If these people read the book of Exodus they'd find that the Eighth Commandment says, "Thou shalt not steal." There is no adendum that says, "However if the person you're taking from is rich, then it's OK." But most do not question. They figure if Father says it's so, then it must be true.
Again, I ask: How long, Lord. HOW LONG?

Not much better in the Fresno diocese. I cintacted the communications office and was told the bishop would have no comment on the fact that Jim Costa of Fresno signed this letter openly defying Church teaching. This Sunday of course the letter from the bishop was read regarding allowing felons to cross the border. Is there any wonder why many ignore anything comming the american bishops.

This is a very good article.

Episcopal Reform and the Rights of the Laity

In part:

These rights are the basis of many of the provisions of Canon Law. Regardless of the mechanisms for enforcement, Canon Law has always been concerned with the ordering of the Church, the rights of the faithful, and the duties of ecclesiastical persons with respect to these rights. The first part of the current Code of Canon Law devotes two major sections to the rights and responsibilities of all the faithful and of the laity in particular. Moreover, Canon Law also recognizes (((the right of the faithful to make their views known on matters affecting the life of the Church.))) This is stated clearly in Canon 212, Section 3:

They have the right, indeed at times the duty, in keeping with their knowledge, competence and position, to manifest to the sacred Pastors their views on matters which concern the good of the Church. They have the right also to make their views known to others of Christ's faithful, but in doing so they must always respect the integrity of faith and morals, show due reverence to the Pastors and take into account both the common good and the dignity of individuals.

I too e-mail the Arch diocese asking about the double standard of confronting our government officials about laws that are contrary to church teachings. How come not the same outrage and confrontation with Catholic politicians who support pro abortion and pro euthanasia. Pro-lifers write legislators, support candidates who support their beliefs and if laws are enacted they take it to the supreme court. Pro-lifers hence act writhing the mainstream and are mainstream and do not go outside the rule of law. That would come after dialogue and persuasion fails.

even criminals(illegal aliens) deserve the aid of the Church. This is one time I agree with his liturgical-abuseness.

Thankfully, I have not had to hear one of the scripted sermons yet. Even during the Spanish Mass, the holy priest spoke on the temptations suffered by Christ during his fast.
