PCPA Nuns coming to San Antonio!

These are the five other nuns that come from Mother Angelica's cloistered convent in Alabama, the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration. They have been dubbed the 'San Antonio Cincos' and are due to arrive in San Antonio on July 22nd. They will be staying at a house attached to the parish of Our Lady of the Atonement. The one pictured in the middle is the one that does the narration of the mysteries of the Rosary with Mother Angelica on EWTN. Exciting stuff. I hope to meet them all and offer all I can in terms of financial and material support. San Antonio is blessed to receive these holy women. I hope they grow exponentially each year. They no doubt will.

Heartbreaking story

I was reading a piece in Columbia Magazine about Abortion and it's effects on men and how men are stepping out of the shadows. They are stepping out to announce their pain, and to take a more active role in ending abortion.

At any rate, the particular article cited a couple who were expecting, six months along. The father had been keeping a diary (very common, I did) to give the child later in life...

One day the mother came home and told the father that she had an abortion. Can you just imagine the heartbreak?! I don't know if I could ever fully recover from that. That is a terminal scar.

It still strikes as nothing short of incredible that people in this country and around the world can justify abortion. Just unbelievable. A truly truly Satanic practice...and it's a 'right' in this country? Sickening.

Brangelina had twins....SO?

So did hundreds of other parents on that same day. Brad and Angelina are really grating on my nerves. But shame on me for being too tuned into the media to notice.
