Happy Feast of the Immaculate Conception!

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

The Immaculate Conception is about Christ’s power to destroy sin. Mary was sinless from the first moment of her life not because she did not need a Savior, but because she was so close to the Savior. It is always and only through Jesus Christ that Mary receives her special favors and graces.

Today’s Feast is meant to give us confidence that we can say NO to any temptation. The same Christ is ready to strengthen us to do what is right. This is the kind of confidence we need to inspire in those who are pregnant and feel they cannot carry the child. God, through Mary, always provides us the strength to do what is right. Inspired by her, let us reach out with eagerness to all those who are pregnant and in need.

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Friday, August 5th, 2011


In a few days we will celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Like every Feast, it is a celebration of Jesus Christ. This feast shows us that because of her unique role as his mother, Mary received from Jesus a full share, body and soul, in his victory over death. The feast is a reminder that in Christ, we all will share resurrection of the body.
Mary has it now, because in the human family, which God decided to join, there can be no closer bond than mother and child. They belong together; their destinies are intertwined.
That is one of the central messages of the pro-life movement. To love and care for a mother necessarily means protecting, loving, and caring for her child. Mothers can never benefit from the destruction of their children.

Blessed Are the Pure of Heart

Friday, July 8th, 2011

Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God. This beatitude impels us to ask ourselves what our deepest longings and desires are, what motivates our choices, and how consistently we want to do what is right. The pure of heart seek to please God before they please themselves, even at the cost of great sacrifice.
Having a pure heart protects us from the temptations of the culture of death. Meeting the needs of a vulnerable child in the womb requires a new and selfless center of gravity. We put the child first and our own plans and conveniences last.

And when we speak up for that child, we stop worrying about the criticism we might receive. The pure of heart don’t care about that. They only care about doing what’s right.
