Did your parish observe Respect Life Sunday 2008 on Oct. 5? Please let us know what happened!

If your parish observed Respect Life Sunday this past Sunday, Oct. 5, could you please take a moment to let ole Q and all of us know how it went?

Maybe you could please let us know if your parish plans to observe Respect Life Month later this month.

Thank you so much, in advance!

At my parish, RLM (Respect Life Month) has taken full effect. All Homilies were on being Catholic and being pro-life. There will be prayer in front of the PP in Pasedena sponsored by the KoC of my parish. Fr. Bishop when I went to the EF Mass expaneded upon the power of sacramentals in the fight against the culture of deaths. Also included in the parish bulliten was a voter guide on what issues to look at. St. Therese has a very strong pro-Life commitment and it has been evident through all the activity that has been going on at my parish.

Never mentioned directly, but the Jesuit priest saying Mass addressed the election, saying that we are not allowed to be one issue voters (i.e., ignore the evil of abortion), and that we should consider all issues of "social justice", particularly the right - he emphasized it twice - "the right" - to health care for all. Very disturbing.

Dear Joe of St. Therese,

Thanks for this exciting news. It's really encouraging. You've got a fine parish! Thanks for letting everyone know about what your parish is doing for the babies, and what every parish could be doing.

Dear George,

Thank you for letting everyone know what the other side is up to.

They cast aside babies' God-given right to life in favor of socialist "rights" they invent.

And they flout the Popes' and bishops' teachings that the right to life is the paramount issue.

Is that not hardness of heart, and disobedience, on their part?

Did anyone get a copy of that San Gabriel Mission bulletin (Oct 5) against Prop. 8? Their website already replaced it with the current bulletin. But Google cache caught this incoherent gem from the Pastor, Claretian Steve Niskanen:
"I deeply respect and submit to the authority of our bishops and the force of traditional Catholic teaching limiting sexual relations to the love and life-giving commitment of heterosexual marriage. But I cannot in conscience unequivocally support Proposition 8 because I cannot in my heart of hearts say with certainty, at this time, that God would not call His gay and lesbian children into a faithful and life-long covenant with one another."

Our Parish mentioned the unborn in the petitions. First time I have heard that in a long time.

We had a Polish Mass celebration to go with the Polish Octoberfest. Go figure.
