40 Days for Life

October 8, 2012

From Priests for Life (Roman Catholic):

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
by the Resurrection of Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself
Never to be silent,
Never to be passive,
Never to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
And never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our nation once again becomes
A nation with liberty and justice
Not just for some, but for all,
Through Christ our Lord. Amen!

Columbus Day

October 8, 2012

An excerpt from The Light and the Glory by Peter Marshall and David Manuel:

Columbus was the first to set foot on dry land, carrying the royal standard, with the brothers Pinzon directly behind him, bearing a huge white banner with a green cross and the crowned initials of Ferdinand and Isabella on either side of it. The men kissed the white coral beach, which was almost too bright to look at in the noonday sun.
Several of the sailors scooped out a deep hole in the hot sand and firmly planted the eight-foot oak cross Columbus had brought especially for this occasion. Then the entire company gathered around it and knelt, many with tears in their eyes. The Admiral christened the island San Salvador–“Holy Savior”–and then they bowed their heads as he prayed: “O Lord, Almighty and everlasting God, by Thy holy Word Thou hast created the heaven, and the earth, and the sea; blessed and glorified be Thy Name, and praised be Thy Majesty, which hath deigned to use us, Thy humble servants, that Thy holy Name may be proclaimed in this second part of the earth.”

Luke 6:46-49

“But why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46)
      Holy Spirit, restore to your church a willing obedience to the words of Jesus.

“Whoever comes to me, and hears my sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock.” (Luke 6:47-48 )
      Jesus, you are our rock; please help us to build only on you. The storm is upon us — help us cling to you.

“But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.” (Luke 6:49)
      Father, so many ears and hear not; eyes and see not; tongues and speak not. They have build for themselves a house with no foundation. Have mercy on them and rescue as many as you can. Thank you.

A word received: Look to me — I AM able to do what you cannot.

      Grace known. Grace unknown.
      Grace given, Grace received.
      Grace seen, Grace unseen.
      Grace aware, Grace unaware.
      Grace flowing, Grace withheld.
      Grace abundant, Grace thinly veiled.
      Grace clear and present.
      But always there is Grace…
