Release Pakistani Christian Woman Asia Bibi Sentenced To Death By Hanging

Asia Bibi is the first woman in Pakistan’s history to be condemned to death under the country’s blasphemy laws. She has been falsely accused of blasphemy. She faces death by hanging. Her crime is to refuse to convert to Islam by remaining true to her Christian faith. She is a Catholic and has five children.
Wikipedia gives the background to the case: In June 2009, Asia Noreen, a farmhand from the village of Ittan Wali in Sheikhupura District, was asked to fetch water; she complied, but some of her Muslim fellow workers refused to drink the water as they considered Christians to be "unclean". Apparently some arguments ensued. There had already been a running feud between Noreen and a neighbour about some property damage. Later some coworkers complained to a cleric that Noreen made derogatory comments about Prophet Muhammad. A mob came to her house, beating her and members of her family before she was rescued by the police. However, the police initiated an investigation about her remarks, resulting in her arrest and prosecution under Section 295 C of the Pakistan Penal.

It is important to stress that Asia Bibi is INNOCENT of any wrongdoing. Her only crime is that she is a Catholic. Christianity is under incessant attack in many Moslem countries.

"Now that you know me, tell those around you what is happening. Let them know about it. I believe this is my only chance of not dying in the pit of this dungeon. I need you! Save me!" - Asia Bibi

The Divine Mercy:Flee to the Divine Mercy as Individuals

I recommend strongly this article on the Divine Mercy:
Whoever you are, wherever you live, whatever you have done… now is the time to flee to His Divine Mercy. Please do not delay this one single more day
Some of you have committed great sins; the remorse over them dominates your life and drains you of any hint of the joy that seems now like nothing but a faint memory in the most distant recesses of your soul. To you I say that all the bad you have done taken together is nothing but a miniscule drop in the vast ocean of His mercy, and you need only raise your eyes to Him to see that He is right next to you, waiting for you, with open arms.

Some of you have spent your entire life seeking meaning and have gotten nowhere; and in this pursuit you have exhausted hordes of self-help books, self-professed gurus, 12-step programs, diet regimens, fitness regimens, pills, self-esteem buildup workshops, and anything and everything that seems like it might provide the epiphany and renewal you crave. To you I say that this thirst of your soul can only be quenched by the one who created you and desires to give Himself entirely to you as you give yourself entirely to Him.
Some of you have nobody, have nothing, and see no light at the end of the dark tunnel you tread; and just to see happiness in others only deepens your depression because it reminds you of what you now believe will never be yours. To you I say that whoever has Christ lacks nothing; and he who has the whole world but has not Christ, has nothing. Continue reading at Daniel O'Connor

RTE Drivetime:Olivia O'Leary comments on Enda Kenny too personal (19-06-2012)

Olivia O'Leary's commentary on Enda Kenny on the Drivetime programme this week leaves much to be desired. Of course she is entitled to her opinions in relation to Kenny. We live in a democracy. However this week she over stepped the mark. The personal tone of some of her remarks leaves a bad taste. She was condescending and belittling. The use of the term "duracell bunny" is gratutiously insulting. The use of the words ventriloquist, puppet and dummy in the commentary further lowers the tone and is geared towards belittling Kenny as it leaves an indelible imprint in the listeners mind.

It is risible to listen to her criticism then of Kenny's performance in the Dail. Some opposition TDs have been highly personal with Kenny. There was no mention of that of course. O'Leary would do well to realise that sarcasm does not a commentator make. It is the lowest form of wit. It is unchristian. One gets the impression from the intonation of her voice that she believes that she is the fountain of all knowledge. Olivia you are not God. There was a major error of fact in the commentary just proving that you are fallible like the rest of us.

Strangely for one so opinionated and acerbic she appears incapable of outlining PRACTICAL solutions to Ireland's problems. On the other hand maybe it is not so surprising. It is all too easy for commentators like O'Leary to mouth platitudes and write colour pieces. It is much more difficult to come up with something constructive. There is an increasing tendency in SOME sections of the Irish media to get personal. There is a Dublin Four intellectual snobbery which is directed at rural politicians. It seems O'Leary has been infected by the Dublin Four virus.

Ireland: US Pro Abortion Group targets TCD and University of Limerick, Graduate Medical Schools

There is now a declining number of trained abortionists in the US and Canada. 57% of abortion providers are over the age of 50 testament to the success of American pro-life groups that are increasingly winning the public opinion battle to expose the slaughter of the unborn. Medical Students For Choice pro-abortion group which has been active in the US and Canada has turned its attention to Ireland. Now this pro-abortion group has begun recruiting at TCD and the University of Limerick Graduate Medical Schools. It intends to bring Irish medical students to the US where they will receive first hand training to perform the killing of unborn babies (abortion). It has further plans at Ireland's-other medical schools in Cork, Dublin and Galway- to recruit young students and turn them into future abortionists (baby killers). It also aims to have abortion procedures included in medical school curricula.

This organisation is funded by thirteen wealthy US foundations. Interestingly enough one of these is Roth Family Foundation. Its website bleats on about a desire to "help others who may be less fortunate, to protect freedom and human and civil rights." Sadly the Roth Family Foundation is helping to fund the destruction of the unborn child in its mother's womb. In short it is funding the trampling of the human rights of the unborn contrary to its stated aims to protect human rights.

The annual income of Medical Students For Choice rose from €571,000 to €1,821,000 in just one year. It is linked to Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America. It makes no secret of its intentions. Its mission is "Creating tomorrows abortion providers and pro-choice physicians." Its website boldly proclaims in capital letters "WITH YOUR SUPPORT, WE CAN CONTINUE TO CREATE TOMORROW’S ABORTION PROVIDERS AND PRO-CHOICE PHYSICIANS". Irish pro-life organisations like Family and Life intend to oppose this sinister organisation which hopes to provide a cadre of trained abortionists in Ireland in anticipation of the legalisation of abortion.

indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Live Action Video:Sex-selective abortion in North Carolina.

Live Action undercover video released today again catches Planned Parenthood contradicting its public statements claiming opposition to sex-selective abortion -- this time, in North Carolina.

The film actually depicts two abortion facilities: the National Abortion Federation (NAF) affiliated “Women’s Choice of Raleigh,” along with Planned Parenthood’s Chapel Hill location. Both willingly and without any discernible hesitation schedule late-term, sex-selective abortions of baby girls -- just because the woman brazenly claims she is "unlucky" to be pregnant with a daughter, not a son.

Ireland: NAMA Wine Lake Blog Attack on Michael Noonan and Enda Kenny Nonsensical

The NAMA Wine Lake Blog Attack on the negotiation stance of Michael Noonan and Enda Kenny is bookish exercise which fails to address the realities of the current euro crisis. It makes no reasonable effort to look at the full Euro/ World context.

Interesting how so many Irish people are deluded about concessions won by Greece. Greece's partial default is a catastrophe. The minimum wage has been cut to €2.20 per hour. Pensions have been savagely cut. by 30%/40%. There have been massive hikes in direct and indirect taxation and charges for government services. 150000 public service workers will be fired. Greece is as dead as a dodo. It is kaput. Ireland would like a debt write down like Greece. But are we prepared for the for the massive cuts that will likely be a condition of any such write down in the future.

It is easy to criticize the negotiating stance of the government. Conditions in Europe are deteriorating and changing at such an alarming rate that there is a grave danger that the Euro crisis will pull down the world financial system. Greece is BANKRUPT. Spain is BANKRUPT in all but name. Portugal is BANKRUPT. Italy is next in line. The game is almost over. Even the UK has major problems.

Be warned: burning the bondholders is no panacea. It will raise borrowing rates for the peripheral economies-once bitten twice shy. PART of the pressure on bonds has come from the Greek partial default. There is NO silver bullet. There is a less than 50 50 chance that a Euro collapse will be averted. The Euro system is so weak that default by another country besides Greece AT PRESENT would likely be the coup de grace. AT PRESENT an Irish or Portuguese threat of default would likely be sufficient to topple the euro such is the hysteria it would engender in the markets. Opinion is Germany is hardening against the profligacy of the peripheral economies. That’s the reality. German elections are due in 2013. Merkel is now gearing up to face her own electorate.

If France decides to jettison austerity the bond markets will turn on the country.

Its time we faced up to the DEBT CRISIS. European countries in many cases are living way beyond their means. It can't continue. The game is up. AT THIS TIME it is best to keep our powder dry until we see how the crisis unfolds. It is certainly not a time for major bondholder burning by Ireland ( much as I wish it should happen). Nobody can with certainly foretell the likely consequences.. Now lets cross the Atlantic. Obama lectures Europe about its debt problems. Obama is on track to borrow $6.2Trillion One Term—More Than All Presidents from Washington through Clinton Combined. The US national debt is $15.78 Trillion. The US is approaching bankruptcy. It is borrowing cheaply- but for how long more. China has already warned the US. The US has a dysfunctional system of government which has failed to take the hard decisions to address the debt problem. The US government is borrowing 42 cents in every 100 cents it is borrowing. The West is swimming on a sea of debt.

If by chance the Euro crisis is sorted the markets will then target the dollar which is on borrowed time. It’s time to face reality. Ireland can do very little AT THIS TIME. The negotiating stance of Noonan and Kenny is correct.

Obama: The Most Pro-Abortion Anti-Christian Big Spending President of all time

Barack Obama is the most liberal pro-abortion President of all time. The secular humanist philosophy underpinning many of the key decisions taken by the president are the antithesis of Christianity. The Creator is removed from the equation. Once God is removed every possible abomination appears rational and acceptable to a society that has lost its moral compass. The moral boundaries are pushed out further and further as society heads towards its inevitable destruction. How could Obama with any credibility criticize China's forced abortion policy?

Is he not the man who as Illinois Senator, voted AGAINST a bill designed to prevent partial-birth abortions? Is he not the man who staunchly supports Planned Parenthood in its extermination of the unborn?

Is he not the man who has failed to condemn sex selection abortion (gendercide) exposed by Live Action?

Margaret Sanger founder of Planned Parenhood was a eugenicist. She was a dues-paying member of the American Eugenic Society (AES)through the 1960s. She wrote, "Possibly drastic and Spartan methods may be forced upon society if it continues complacently to encourage the chance and chaotic breeding that has resulted from our stupidly cruel sentimentalism." Yet Obama lauds this Satanic Organization whilst claiming to be a Christian.

Not content with supporting the mass slaughter of the unborn in the US and Third World Obama has now attacked religious freedom in a cynical effort to galvanize the pro-abortion lobby behind his campaign. Obama announced that he is violating the first amendment right of freedom of religion. He told Catholics that they will have to violate their conscience by FORCING them to add birth control, the morning after pill, and sterilization to their healthcare coverage or else....

Abortion is a mortal sin and brings an automatic excommunication upon those who procure it, perform it, or cooperate in it. Any Catholic who in any way aids the provision of abortion facilities is automatically excommunicated. Catholic politicians who vote for pro-abortion legislation are automatically excommunicated.

Catholics are duty bound in conscience not to vote for Obama who is the most radical pro-abortion President of all time. The RIGHT TO LIFE trumps all. It is time to drop the whataboutery engaged in my many American Catholics. To vote for Obama is to further aid the abortion industry in its genocidal war against the unborn. Below I produce a summary of Obama's appalling pro-abortion record. What has become of America?

  • As an Illinois Senator, in 1997, Obama voted in the Illinois Senate against SB 230, a bill designed to prevent partial-birth abortions.
  • He voted AGAINST requiring parental consent for minors who seek an abortion.
  • He is so Pro-Abortion that the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) gave him a 100% score on his pro-choice voting record as a senator in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
  • No sooner was he elected President than he overturned the Mexico City Policy. that prohibited funding to international family planning groups that provide abortions. President Bush was a staunch supporter of the Mexico City Policy. Under the "Mexico City Policy," the U.S. government could not provide funding for family planning services to clinics or groups that offered abortion-related services overseas. Obama is now pursuing an aggressive pro abortion policy in the Third World.
  • He has consistently refused to support legislation that would define an infant who survives a late-term induced-labor abortion as a human being with the right to live. He insists that no restriction must ever be placed on the right of a mother to decide to abort her child, regardless of whether the CHILD has SURVIVED the initial attempt and is therefore outside of the womb and STILL BREATHING!
  • He openly supports and is endorsed by Planned Parenthood; the organization that kills 332,000 unborn babies annually.Planned Parenthood endorsed Obama in May with an $1.4 million ad buy.
  • He ensures that PP receives almost $400 million in government (taxpayer-funded) grants a year.
  • On the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade he stated this was a chance to recognize the “fundamental constitutional right” to abortion and to “continue our efforts to ensure that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.”
  • In reference to his own daughters and abortion he stated “But if they made a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby.

It is time to stand for LIFE and vote this anti-Christian pro-abortion extremist out of office. On ECONOMIC grounds he should be voted out before he bankrupts the country. President Barack Obama has been increasing the national debt during his presidency by an average of $4.24 billion per day ($4,240,506,004.34) putting him on a pace to increase the national debt by $6.2 trillion ($6,195,379,272,340.74) by the end of his term on Jan. 20, 2013, according to the debt figures published by the U.S. Treasury. So Obama is on track to borrow $6.2T in One Term—More Than All Presidents from Washington Through Clinton Combined.

Medjugorje: 20 Year Old Meabh Carlin- My eyes are fully open to God

My eyes are fully open to God date: 13.06.2012.

As the 31st Anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions is getting closer, we meet pilgrims from all over the world in Medjugorje. We had chance to talk to 20 –years-old girl from Ireland who is in wheelchair. “I would like to thank for the opportunity to be in Medjugorje. My group leader told me that she had a cancellation last week and she invited me to come instead of that person. It is my blessing to be here, one really feels joy here. I hope to bring peace and hope from this place to my home, to those that I know”, said Maebh who shared her story with us, story full of crosses and lots of suffering, but on the other hand, story full of peace and joy.

Last year she decided to go with a group of her friends to help poor and elderly people in Lisbon. It was to be their pilgrimage. During their pilgrimage, World Youth Day in Madrid was held and they decided to go to Madrid to be there with Holy Father. On the third day of their visit to Madrid, as they were crossing the road, Maebh was at the front and she was hit by a car. “They were all helping me; I felt God’s presence through all those people. I spent two months in bed and I was not able to move at all. My eyes were completely opened to God. In the beginning I was strong, because I thought about the time when I would be able to dance again, to get back to ballet, things that I did before. Then, doctors told me that I would never dance again. I broke after that news and I did not speak for 4 days. I started writing and I felt Holy Spirit’s presence within me. I wrote more than 200 pages of mediations and blessings that I received through my condition. I realised that crosses that we received give us strength to do even those hardest things. I started to receive strength from prayer. Even though they told me that I would never walk again, I believed that I would be able to dance, of course, if that is God’s will. It has been nine months since the accident took place and I am starting to learn how to walk again. I feel that every step I make is a step closer to God. I know that this is not an accident but God’s plan”, said Maebh, who with her sister started a prayer group that now has more than 80 members as well as music ministry that involves more than 30 members.

St Josemaria Escriva and Prayer: If I pray when I don't feel like it, is it really prayer?

A student asks if praying when you don't feel like it, is a bit hypocritical

Father, I'm a student, and people in my class often say that you should only go to Mass and pray, when you feel like it, because doing things when you don't really want to is just hypocritical. What can I tell them?

Answer-StJosemaria Escriva

Listen, my daughter, I very seldom really feel like it. We have to do things we don't feel like doing, and then, as they're based on sacrifice, and are difficult, they are much more fruitful and are worth much more, before God, they shine like stars in the night. When you go to do some prayer and you don't feel like praying and you can't think of anything to say, put yourself in God's presence and tell him: "Lord," -- as you've just told me -- "I really don't feel like talking to you, I don't want to spend a minute on you, I feel as if I'm doing you a favor." And you'll hear in the depths of your heart like a sudden shout, loving, but strong, a cry from God: "I'm the one doing you a favor when I call you to serve me, when I call you to have a conversation with me, when I tell you that I want to make friends with you, with your very soul.

And then, whether you feel like it or not, you'll go and spend time praying every day, at home, or in the street, or at the office, or in the University, or your studio, or on the motorway, traveling, or in church, in front of the Tabernacle, because Christ Jesus is there, our Lady's son, the son of the Blessed ever-virgin Mary; Jesus, who was born in a stable, who worked with St Joseph, and learned from him how to work, and then preached and suffered his Passion and was crucified for love, letting himself be nailed to the wood of the Cross. He is waiting for us there; because you and I know through faith that hidden in the sacramental species is Christ. Christ is there: his Body, his Blood, his Soul and his Divinity, a prisoner of love. We'll go there, not feeling like it, but knowing that he's listening to us, to tell him that we don't feel like it, -- and we are already praying. And you'll see how he speaks to you, how he moves you, how you end up learning how to converse, to chat with our Lord, and how the day you don't talk to God, whether you feel like it or not, that day you'll be hungry to pray, you'll feel the need to pray.

Australian Parish Priest Father Andrew Grace and the two car crashes which changed his life

This beautiful story shows how God can have other plans for us. Medjugorje comes to have a major influence on his life.
Two near fatal car crashes have played pivotal roles in Fr Grace's life. Although the first crash occurred several years before his birth, it would influence his life and his faith. The second had even more far reaching consequences and was instrumental in his decision to become a priest and devote his life to God. Fr Grace's story, however, begins with his parents and the country town of Gundagai where his mother, Lorraine grew up, the daughter of a devout Irish Catholic family who owned the local Family Hotel.
"My mother's faith was profound and she was praying a Novena for direction about her Vocation when she met my father at my grandparents' hotel. Dad was in banking and had been sent from Sydney to help out at the Gundagai bank for five weeks and was playing darts in the hotel when they met," Fr Grace says. "Dad wasn't a Catholic and was surprised when Mum told him a couple of days after they had fallen in love that she would never marry a non-Catholic." "Good heavens, who said anything about marriage?" Fr Grace's father had burst out in surprise. But his mother knew the two of them were meant for each other and to help him learn more about her faith, she gave him a Miraculous Medal and a book on Catholicism. Continue reading at News

Video of Apparition to Mirjana on June 2, 2012 at Medjugorje.

Our Lady's Message to Mirjana - June 2, 2012

"Dear children, I am continuously among you because, with my endless love, I desire to show you the door of Heaven. I desire to tell you how it is opened: through goodness, mercy, love and peace – through my Son. Therefore, my children, do not waste time on vanities. Only knowledge of the love of my Son can save you. Through that salvific love and the Holy Spirit He chose me and I, together with Him, am choosing you to be apostles of His love and will. My children, great is the responsibility upon you. I desire that by your example you help sinners regain their sight, enrich their poor souls and bring them back into my embrace. Therefore, pray, pray, fast and confess regularly. If receiving my Son in the Eucharist is the center of your life than do not be afraid, you can do everything. I am with you. Every day I pray for the shepherds and I expect the same of you. Because, my children, without their guidance and strengthening through their blessing, you can not do it. Thank you."

Italy -Verona: Marija Pavlovic visits Santuario della Madonna della Corona Spiazzi on June 2, 2012

At the Shrine of Santuario della Madonna della Corona Spiazzi (Our Lady of the Crown) frequented by Veronese, Medjugorje visionary Marija Pavlovic was welcomed by eight priests and by a thousand faithful (including holiday makers), mostly in the church, some on the steps and the rest on the road that leads there. Between 18.40 and 18.43,Marija had once again an apparition. Many young people attended. Mass, which preceded the Eucharistic adoration and prayer to Mary was celebrated by eight priests. The rector Monsignor Pietro Maroldi, shortly before had said: " The Church has not officially ruled on apparitions however I am in favor of this devotion of so many faithful and so many conversions." He said that he did not organize the visit but rather the group Medjugorje - Villafontana had done so: "I was asked to accept the visionary at the shrine," he explained, "and I accepted. Marija secured the fifteenth century statue of the Pietà that dominates the apse of the church sanctuary. She led the prayers. Then a silence fell over the church as she had her apparition. This lasted for about four minutes. Marija said "In this beautiful sanctuary, where the presence of the Madonna is perceived and breathed, Our Lady told me that she loves us and wanted us all here today. In fact, if I see her, you see, all of you. Now She prayed and blessed all of you. And for you this is a great grace, received for free. Marija spoke about the importance of confession, prayer especially the rosary and the family. She also spoke about the priesthood.
