We Must Protect Life

“Everywhere, wherever we find ourselves, wherever we are called to bear witness, we must protect life, we must  guard human beings from everything that can crush them underfoot. Woe to those who inflict suffering. And woe to those who have destroyed a human life, who have desecrated a image of God, even when it was already breathing it’s last, even when it seemed to represent only a vestigejanmot_the-angel-and-the-mother-sm.jpg of humanity.” ~Father Alfred Delp~

Let us Serve Jesus with Pure Love this Year

“Life, and especially our spiritual life, often drags on heavily…It is weary work to be always fighting with our evil passions, and disheartening work to make so little way.  Temptations tease us, and scruples worry us; and to be dead, buried, and safe in purgatory, seems the limit to our peevish ambition. And why is this? Because we do not serve Jesus for love. If we did, it would be with us as it was with Jacob. Years would seem but days, for the greatness of our love. Now let us see if it is, after all so impossible for us to serve our dear Lord out of Love.”  ~ Father Faber~shutterstock_214232797
