Happy Birthday, Los Angeles!

Today, September 4, is the 225th anniversary of the founding of El Pueblo de Los Angeles in 1781. The current issue of The Tidings has a story (click on this post's title) about the founding and about our present-day descendientes of the founding families.

I am happy to mention that Luis Manuel Quintero, from Jalisco, was one of the founders of our beloved pueblo, although I cannot claim descent from him.

Presumably there were no pro-aborts among the pioneers in 1781 who made the nine-mile trek to the Rio Porciuncula to start a new settlement. Unfortunately, no doubt the same cannot be said of the politicians who were to join today's reenactment of that trek -- and who are more than happy to support in every way the aborting of so many Latino and other babies here.

Our Lady of the Angels, please pray for this metropolis so beautifully named for you, our only Queen, and please deliver us especially from everything that keeps so many Angelenos from saving preborn babies, helping their moms and working to reaffirm the right to life. Amen!
