More good news flooding in...
I'm sure the Bishops Conference in the US fighting Obama's Healthcare programme for its abortifacient and artificial contraception mandate will be much heartened by the ringing endorsement given to the Successor of St Peter today.
A tiny pebble can still make a big ripple and we are now seeing that international ripple. Whatever Archbishop Mueller says as clarification on recent opining by the Holy Father in the press, I think we can assume that the damage is well and truly done. The enemies of the Church have been gifted an unexpected round of ammunition in their war against the Church, against Life and its Author, Almighty God. These people, the Church's sworn enemies, do not do 'dialogue' with the Church. They see such rhetoric as a weakness, seize upon it and pounce upon the victim and, sadly, we now see that the Church is not the only victim. No, we now see that those She is called upon to defend, whose rights She upholds, whose dignity She proclaims - the unborn - they will be the victims.
May God help the pro-life movement in the US and across the World. May God help our beloved Pope, the Bishops and the whole Church to defend, always and everywhere, the dignity and right to life of the helpless unborn. May God have mercy on us all.
