Holy Innocents

Today is the feast of Innocent Martyrs, the children who in Bethlehem of Judas were killed by the unholy King Herod. Their shed blood was for the Son of God and Savior, and for us.

The Holy Innocents have been honored by the Church as martyrs since the first centuries. Today, their import keeps us vigilant on threats to human life, from conception to natural death. The Innocents are the witnesses to the Pro-Life work we are engaged in. They bring us into relationship with Christ and humanity at a deeper level.

Let the final word be just as Saint Thérèse would have it: Nisi efficiamini sicut parvuli  (Unless you become like unto little children. Mt 18:3)

NB: The Byzantine Church (UGCC) this feast on December 29.

Jerome Lejeune

JPII and LejeunePope John Paul wrote on hearing of the death of Jerome Lejeune on April 3, 1994 in a Rome hospital:

We are faced today with the death of a great Christian of the twentieth century, of a man for whom the defense of life became an apostolate. It is clear that, in this present world situation, this form of lay apostolate is particularly necessary… [He] has left the truly brilliant witness of his life as a man and as a Christian.

May Jerome Lejeune intercede for the work of the Culture of Life.

Komen pushes fiction over evidence

Judy Roberts has an interesting article “Susan G. Komen’s Moral Dilemma” outlining the difficulties in those organizations that attempt to do good but in fact are conflicted by their support of abortion research with money and certain medical procedures. Ms Roberts’ article doesn’t reveal new knowledge but it continues to shine light on the problem of the research’s evidence and logic of sin. We have a similar moral problem with ALS research (but that’s another story). The distressing thing for many is the rejection of the research that links abortion and cancers in women like breast cancer. This is a serious lack of concern for the health of women. From the moral perspective, Catholics can’t give money to the Komen foundation for the lack of honesty in organizations like the Komen foundation is misleading to  say the least.
