A Challenge – A Cry for Life Before Death

My heart bleeds anew with anguish…

The state of New York has declared a further blow against LIFE in the womb, even after birth.  Can you imagine that horror?  61 Million potential human beings have been aborted in America since 1973.  With this unconscionable action, can America really call itself the most successful nation in the world?  I know, NOT!  The proponents of this ‘death’ culture even celebrated this new law by illuminating the World Trade Center with pink lights — the travesty against humanity continues — but Hope prevails:

“This is the covenant I will establish with them after those days, says the Lord:  I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write then upon their minds…their sins and their evildoing I will remember no more.” (Letter to the Hebrews 10:11-18)

My sad heart begs forgiveness.

“Chose love and peace will follow.”

“Choose peace and love will follow.”

“I have decided to work with Love…Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

“”We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive.  He who is devoid of the power to forgive, is devoid of the power to love.  There is some good in the worst of us, and some evil in the best of us.  When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.”

DISCOVERING PEACE

4th Sunday of Advent

The Gospel according to Luke 1:39-45

“The Lord will give you the bread you need and the water for which you thirst.  No longer will your Teacher hid himself, but with your own eyes you shall see your Teacher.  While from behind, a voice shall sound in your ears:  “This is the way; walk in it,” when you would turn to the right or to the left.”  Isaiah 30:20-21

…let all hearts be open…Emmanuel comes to all…
