Today’s Post: Pope St. John-Paul said it all…..Ireland must choose…..
In the video below, Pope Saint John-Paul II’s prophetic words to the Irish people during his visit in 1979, resonate powerfully to this day. In the coming decades, he prophesied, satan would tempt or deceive Ireland away from the Faith to a false understanding of freedom especially in the areas of life and family. Almost 40 years on, under immense pressure from powerful forces at home and abroad, we are now voting on May 25th on whether to retain or repeal our pro-life 8th amendment to the Irish constitution, which acknowledges equal right to life to mother and unborn child, despite having one of the lowest maternal mortality rates in the world, with not one single maternal death attributable to the 8th.
The 8th is the jewel in the crown / thorn in the side of pro-life / repeal movements respectively and as such is every pro-life person’s amendment, yours and mine. If repealed, the government will legislate for unrestricted abortion to 12 weeks and to 24 weeks on similar mental health grounds to the ‘social’ abortion / mental health ground of the U.K.. As Pope John Paul II said in the following video: “Ireland must choose”.
Sr. Briege McKenna O.S.C. last year in Knock Marian shrine, implored everyone to do their utmost to save the 8th. Mass and Fast for Ireland is a response to that appeal and an S.O.S. to Christians everywhere for prayer and fasting and to catholics in particular, to have as many Masses offered in atonement, for conversions of hearts and protection of the 8th. Please visit our website and download our church poster and Sr. Briege’s prayer for the unborn….
God Bless you all
God is not outdone in generosity…..
