It Is My Own Body


People who support abortion usually use the term “It’s my body”, which refers to women who feel they can do whatever they want with their own bodies. People have choices and freedom, and they can choose to smoke, to drink, to use drugs, to behave or to misbehave. A person can even choose to take his/her own life.

But the problem with that slogan is that people who support abortion do not recognize that a baby in the womb is a different person. A child in the womb has a unique DNA, his/her heart is beating, and is capable to feel pain. Don’t they see that? It is blindness to deny it. It’s ridiculous to deny that a child is a human person, different than the mother.

People can use all kind of excuses to protect their selfish actions and to defend their life-style. But we as Catholics have to keep condemning abortion as an evil action, immoral and unethical. We condemn sin and the abuse of children. God forgives the sinner who repents, but we have to be clear on rejecting any initiative that promotes the sin of abortion. Abortion hurts women, hurts families, and praises death. But we respect life, honor the word of God, and obey the teachings of the Church. Praised be Jesus Christ.

Basilica Day Indulgences Update



Prayer for Missionaries

Dear Heavenly Father,

I pray that you fulfil the joy of all missionaries, help them to be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind; let each esteem other better than themselves.

Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

Let this mind be in them, which was also in Christ Jesus.

I pray in Jesus name, Amen.
