My Brothers All;
This month the Life Team will again address the issue of abortion.
Although we have commented on this issue twice before, we feel strongly that the disrespect of human life in America is the number one problem that our Order and our Church needs to address with the strongest possible message.
Now that fifty three (53) United States Senators have actually voted to allow the murder of new born babies who are the product of unsuccessful abortions, we have crossed the line of good and evil, and are well on our way to euthanizing (killing) the elderly, the disabled, the weak, the unwanted and any other living soul that becomes inconvenient.
Brothers, we didn’t arrive here by mistake. Our Country’s position on the reverence of human life is the direct result of decades of the systematic removal of God from our Society, Our Government, our Schools and our daily lives.
A recent poll revealed that 40 percent of Americans under the age of 50 profess “no religion” and what’s more, 50 percent of those born Catholic under the age of 30 also profess “no religion.” Our Churches are closing as if we were having a “Going out of Business” sale and those that remain open are half empty on Sunday mornings. Christianity is being attacked from all sides literally every day and it has been estimated that in excess of 50,000 people have been executed worldwide in the last decade simply because they were followers of Jesus Christ.
Theodore Roosevelt once said that “ the business of United States is business.” Is it any wonder that, in light of the above, the United States is now in the business of killing babies? And unfortunately, many of us have been sitting idly by and watching it happen. Satan is proving that he is alive and well and fighting every day against the forces of decency, morality, mercy, justice and God’s Goodness and Love.
Please, Please, Please stand as Knights and fight him in this war of sin and depravity. Plan Novenas for Life in your Councils. Band together with other Councils to donate ultrasound machines to those centers fighting against the abortion insanity. Hold fund raisers to donate to Christian Relief Funds throughout the world. Join in any and all Marches for Life.
Stand up. Be proud of your Faith. Open your mouth. Write your Senators and Congressmen. Be a Christian. Be a Catholic. Be a Knight. Be an Apostle.Remember the last words in the Gospels that were attributed to Mary. “Do whatever He tells you to do.”
