Northern Ireland Supreme Court Rejects Lawsuit to Overturn Its Abortion Ban | LifeNews.com
Cardinal Francis Aidan Gasquet, O.S.B. was an English Benedictine monk and historical scholar that was created Cardinal in 1914 understood that the Protestant reformers were interested in freedom from tradition in where it relates to ‘freedom’ from their changing definition of sin & morality and was quoted as having said and written that “revolutionaries are more prone to destroy than to build’
In the Irish referendum vote just following the overthrow of their 8th amendment protections for the unborn the newly minted Irish homosexual prime minster of Ireland Leo Varadkar took the stand to cheering crowds and publicly announced “What you are witnessing here is the culmination of ten to twenty years of a quiet revolution”
This man , if you can call him that , could not have been more correct (against the Catholic culture of the country)
Cardinal Gasquet went on to mirror today to almost prophesy in saying “The bulk of innovators are but an unruly mob, for whom destruction and freedom from restraint has ever been an attraction , and whose instinct is always against authority and tradition”
Knights of our Lady must always be on guard as the trained eyes and hands to spot the revolution in its many disguises and ride out and confront it wherever it appears at any level. The counter revolution is comprised of a remnant in the tradition of the orthodox apologists of the Catholic Counter Reformation and it calls upon you to sharpen your prayers to efficacious grace and increase the study of the truth contained in authentic Roman Catholicism in order to join in answering the horn that we are all being called to the battlefield of the fight.
“The horn of Helm Hammerhand sounds is the deep one last time”
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” -Sun Tzu, The Art of War
In the 21st century, we have many challenges. We see the world being torn down, just as it was when Rome was falling.
Now consider Purgatory. Church Penitent, it’s called. There, in fires shared by Hell, the poor souls of the dead are painfully purged of their impurities, and they suffer greatly. They wait for us to pray for them, that they may pass on to Heaven more swiftly. Sometimes the demons are allowed to torment them, as a payoff for what they have done in their lives on Earth. Yet these people are filled with peace and joy. They know that Heaven is their ultimate end.
The poor souls of Purgatory are limited in what they can do. They have no career plans, no life plans, no ability to really evangelize, and they can’t pray for themselves. They’re in a painful waiting room. They are purging their souls of this world’s baggage, as is related in 1 Corinthians 3:11-15. Yet they have more joy and peace than most of the living.
Throughout its history, the struggle for the Irish soul has always been over its Druids. Ireland only abandons the ardor of the Faith when it allows its hidden Druids to return and dominate.
What the Druids Believed
This is what has happened now. The Druid label fits perfectly on the political caste that has imposed divorce, same-sex “marriage” and now abortion on the Emerald Isle. The diviners, charmers, priest, magicians, astrologists and wizards of old were amazingly similar to their neo-pagan counterparts today.
The Druids’ principal doctrine supported a life without moral consequences since they believed the soul did not die but passed at death from one person to another. Although these frequenters of sacred oak groves are viewed as a priestly sect, they were quite secular. Their influence was much more social than religious since their role was mostly administrative and ceremonial. The Druids had no god of their own nor did they introduce any new divinity. They merely lived with the local gods as they were.
Finally, as a part of their duties, the Druids performed human sacrifices. It was their custom to have large wickerwork structures that were filled with people and then burned as part of their offerings to appease local divinities.http://www.tfp.org/the-return-of-the-druids-in-ireland/
The honoring of paganism surrounds us – with the newly emerged Catholic philosophy having confused the John Locke forma of egalitarian American version of freedom = freedom for each to do as one pleases and social laws and mores to respect AND honor what each person believes as opposed to the authentic Roman Catholic definition of freedom which is = freedom from sin ! And sin as interpreted by the precepts and commands as previously interpreted , determined, and fixed by the Holy Roman Catholic Church. The honoring of paganism and pagan peoples can only attempt to change the truth by political statements and symbolic ceremony but in reality it can never change the truth that what the are attempting to embrace and partner with is incompatible with the Truth

Watch This Satanic Video Of Mostly Young People The Moment Restrictions On Abortion Were Lifted On Ireland On gloria.tv
Fever pitched cheering for responsibility free sex without procreation – whistling and fist pumping for fornication without babies Witness the beginning of a satanic dying race – The Mohammadian Sheiks laughed at it and said within several decades this country will be ours – and for the first time the muslims said something I believe
Devoid of the one true religion, paganism always and eventually (in each region and situation) reverts to man’s lowest common denominator original sin – It takes out those pulling for the abolition of the majority’s access to mortal sin as “freedom” . it takes out the weaker, the less strong, the ill, the elderly, and the babies that it does not want and it will place them in the wicker cages of the Druids , the Aztecs, and the Incas and it will sacrifice them. We already know that the Lord promised that in the closing of one of the seven convents between God and man, the covenant between Noah and his people , God would never bring death to the world by flood ever again But when the 7th covenant between God and mankind ends ( the Eucharistic covenant ) the world will end by fire. The Mass of the Druids simulates these sacrificial fires in the name of their form of freedom – freedom to sin by fire. Prior to the missions of Roman Catholicism those pagan cultures , all of them , always had the solution for these: the weaker , the minority , the authentic liturgical Trinitarian Christians ……kill them !
Ireland legalized abortion on Ember Friday in Pentecost while the majority of the Catholic world failed to observe the fasting , abstinence and prayer
The news of the 65% to 35% landslide in favor of abortion comes down during the Catholic world’s failure to observe Ember Saturday , its specific prayers , fasting, abstinence and instead the party in the ballroom of the titanic continues without interruption despite the SS Titanic having already struck an iceburg and began taking on water.
The land beneath the feet of Ireland cries out for help. The Regina Caeli is recited and or sung for the last time of the season following the mid-day office. Pentecost octaves end with Planned Parenthood planning the investment of a half billion dollars in new factory mills to carry out the final solution for Ireland’s poor and challenged , kill them.
While on Holiday on the Feast of the Holy Trinity Sunday Rev. Robert Pasley at Mater Ecclesiae in Berlin a NJ suburb of Philadelphia ( the only traditional Rite only Diocesan Chapel in the State of NJ) gives a black and white , straight hard hitting account of reality .”” Ireland is no longer Catholic”” The Irish have returned to paganism. Watching the screaming young Irish cheering in that they can now murder children with a crazed look is evidence of the satanic.
All over the world the Truth is falling Europe is by majority no longer Catholic. Latin America slips to 50% Catholic and falling, as evil rises.
While Father Pasley discussed the rare places like the packed Mater Ecclesiae Church that follow the Truth in all its commandments and precepts, we’re surrounded by the anti-trinitarian false gospel. Arianism , islam , jehovahs , judaism, all deny the Divinity of Christ and all find partners in the secularist
The rise of modernism was ‘powered’ by what they called the spirit of Vatican II but what most of us that have studied the Council know was the actual documents , teachings and the betrayal of Bishops and Cardinals and the utter silence of the Pope.
This very Catholic Priest and positive example to all Catholic also quoted Prof. de Mattei’s article on Rorate in relation to the sermon he gave on the Holy Trinity
“Yet every Catholic who voted “yes”, and thus, the majority of Irish Catholics who went to the ballot boxes, have stained themselves with apostasy. The apostasy of a people whose constitution still opens with an invocation to the Most Holy Trinity.”
Irish abortion referendum: Ireland overturns abortion ban – On BBC News
“On Bloody Friday, in what was both a tragedy and a crime, the people of Ireland, lead by their first homosexual prime minister, voted overwhelmingly to reject the Author of Life and embrace the Father of Lies.”“After 16 centuries, and more than 60 generations, of Catholic Faith, Christian culture, and civilized morals, the Irish people have repudiated their religion, betrayed their heritage, scorned their ancestors, and abandoned their historic identity, only to descend into barbarism.”
“One notes with irony that 96 years after the independence of the country, the Irish have, once again, conformed to the values of their former colonial masters. With the Abortion Act of 1967, the United Kingdom—with the exception of the six counties of Northern Ireland—became one of the first western European countries to legalize abortion.”
“No court or parliament is responsible for this. Ireland’s decision is unprecedented. Even in Nazi Germany, a majority never voted for mass murder. Now, nearly one and half million people will have innocent blood on their hands.”
IRELAND: a post-mortem examination – by Roberto de Mattei On Rorate (Revisited)
What ‘s Next ? Post Legalization Era Of Abortion Always Brings A Socialism Form Of Communism to A Country
Putting Ireland and the rest of western Europe aside for the moment, what happens when more Latin American countries inch toward the legalization of infanticide , the ones that already legalized same inch toward abortion on demand, legalized sex selection abortion, and the attempts to eliminate all birth defects (eugenics ) by killing them in the womb
What ALWAYS follows is socialized medicine , government controlled hospitals in life and death decision making business and real Catholic doctors that resist persecuted. What comes next from eugenics, is tax payer subsidizing of transgender creations, euthanasia for both young and old, government doctors and insurance managers revel in the growth of the temptations for power over life and death. Killing becomes addictive , which old people get operations and which are denied. Liberals smooth over communism light with socialism justifications, They are just fights against “materialism”
It’s anthropocentrism gone wild. The failure at Vatican II to dig into the philosophies of communism and the theologies of freemasonry , their relationship to one another the culture of death and publicly & formally denounce the infiltration of communism. The so-called progress of mankind has its natural end in his lowest common denominator which is original sin. It’s natural end always has the strong determine the fate of the weak for the supposed greater good. This is what resulted from the proliferation of a new type of Catholicism in an ecumenism with a new type of neo-Protestantism that embraced “the world”. Saint Paul taught us in Sacred Scripture that we can ‘live in the world but not be of the world’
Many do not realize how deep the well goes, in how many unexplored legs the caterpillar has. One such subject, of the many not dug into in nearly enough depth, is the intrinsic relationship of the Catholic Pentecostal movement of Charismatic Catholicism to the socialism of liberation theology and how partnered the two have been in philosophy and hierarchy through its’ lifetime. Only now are traditional academic Catholics beginning to study these subjects amid the many people that are being used and deceived in a much broader movement.
Vatican II is the smoking gun. Professor Plinio Correa de Oliveria , founder of the Society for the Defense of Tradition family and property, put it in this way. He denounced the enigmatic disconcerting dreadful and apocalypticaly tragic silence that the Second Vatican Council kept with regard to Communism (which also explained the entire suppression of the 3rd secret of Fatima on the infiltration of the Catholic hierarchy and the suppression of the Consecration of Russia due to a Vatican deal with Russia with sitting dignitaries of Russia and eastern orthodox Patriarchs in attendance at Vatican II)
The Professor was quoted as saying publicly
“The council intended to be pastoral and not dogmatic In fact it had no dogmatic import. Moreover it’s omission with respect to communism may make it go down in history as the a-pastoral council par excellence. With its up-to-date tactics – about which nevertheless, the least that can be said is that they are debatable on the theoretical practical plane ( with some conciliar documents noting a dissonance with traditional teaching and even a systematic ambiguity that is incompatible with full orthodoxy) the Second Vatican Council attempted to drive away, so to speak, bees, wasps and birds of prey. Its silence on communism let the wolves run free. The work conducted by the Council cannot be written down as really pastoral; neither in history nor in the Book of Life.
In is harsh to say it yet the factual evidence points , in this sense , to Vatican II as one of the greatest calamities, if not the greatest in the history of the Church . As a result of it “ the smoke of satan’ has penetrated into the Church to an unthinkable extent , and it is still spreading day by day , with the terrible expanding gases. To the scandal of countless souls, the Mystical Body of Christ has entered into a sinister process that could be called self-destruction.”
Among the common elements almost never discussed , we repeatedly find many . Upon Pope Paul VI death the grand master of the grand orient freemasonry in Italy proclaimed that Freemasonry was proud for the first time in history to honor a Pope of the Roman Catholic Church in Paul VI.
Several conservative and traditional Catholic dignitaries of the Italian government at the same time were murdered. Suddenly Pope John Paul I turns up dead after only one month in the chair of Peter, with more than several private testimonies of his murder. Several Bishops that pushed for some of the most progressive changes to the Catholic Church at Vatican II and wrote & distributed volumes of propaganda left the Catholic Church following Vatican II after having served their self-destructive mission.The lodges of freemasonry in Rome are built on specific geographic points forming a pentagram , all but one point in the lower corner constructed , one whose properties they still continue to be unsuccessful at commandeering The fact that this sub-terrain world still goes on and is now coming to the surface in this Pontificate is most visible in the masonic Vatican banking scandals and several on-going trials that the US Catholic media refuse to cover. If you don’t read Italian and you are not a traditional rite Catholic it’s invisible to you just the way they want it . Progress, they say, must continue the belief in the evolution of the brotherhood of mankind. What they don’t tell you until you are bought in to this school of thought , eventually man becomes god.
Professor Plinio Correa de Oliveria , in respect to the TFP’s alliance with conservative and traditional Catholics at Vatican II, on the many tragic things they witnessed first-hand would latter follow-up to his writings in his Revolution and Counter Revolutionbook with a latter statement in 1989 “ When in the last part of Revolution and Counter Revolution was that Vatican II was the greatest calamity in Church history, I maintained something that I would maintain today much more vehemently than before.”
Only now are scholars beginning to study this era far enough out to collect all the data and its bad fruit in analyzing all the facts in an objective manner. Among which deeply runs their philosophy of the need to level all the classes from nobility /aristocracy down through the upper classes, the middle classes, the merchant & skilled labor trades and their sodalities
In 1962 the Professor and TFP founder met with Cardinal Tisserant , the virtual MC of Vatican II , where the Cardinal confided in him that he participated in the high level negotiations with the schimatic Russian Orthodox “ “Moscow demanded that no one speak against communism at the Council and Rome agreed “ Subsequently, all the schemas were lost , not processed, and suppressed at the Council. No one ever mentions that THIS was Archbishop Lefebvre’s main argument, secondly the Religious Liberty /Ecumenism heresy and the protestantization of the Liturgy was only third. Many don’t realize how deeply communism morphed into the Church in new shapes in liberation theology and was exported all over the world not just to Latin America And hence the theology of “the poor Church” , itself a heresy, was invented and propagated at this moment
And so what comes next after the legalization of abortion ?, the anthropocentric road map of Vatican II , self destruction resident within the culture of death hiding within the vehicle that drives it deeper into more countries , “Communism Light” , Socialism, Social Medicine, Liberation Theology, and the various aberration movements of the novus ordo , the new rite of the Catholic Church
Study and pray for the truth to emerge for the Truth shall set us all free !

Open letter to UK bishops: Your response to Alfie Evans was an ‘abject failure’ | News | LifeSite
The nephew of a renowned German Catholic philosopher and fierce opponent of Hitler, Dietrich von Hildebrand (1889-1977), has written an open letter to the bishops of England and Wales denouncing their response to Alfie Evans as an “abject failure.”
From the Acts of the Apostles 5:12-32The apostles in the primitive Church
Through the hands of the apostles, many signs and wonders occurred among the people. By mutual agreement they used to meet in Solomon’s Portico. No one else dared to join them, despite the fact that the people held them in great esteem. Nevertheless more and more believers, men and women in great numbers, were continually added to the Lord. The people carried the sick into the streets and laid them on cots and mattresses, so that when Peter passed by at least his shadow might fall on one or another of them. Crowds from the towns around Jerusalem would gather, too, bringing their sick and those who were troubled by unclean spirits, all of whom were cured.
The high priest and all his supporters (that is, the party of the Sadducees), filled with jealousy, arrested the apostles and threw them into the public jail. During the night, however, an angel of the Lord opened the gates of the jail, led them forth, and said, “Go out now and take your place in the temple precincts and preach to the people all about this new life.” Accordingly they went into the temple at dawn and resumed their teaching.
When the high priest and his supporters arrived they convoked the Sanhedrin, the full council of the elders of Israel. They sent word to the jail that the prisoners were to be brought in. But when the temple guard got to the jail they could not find them, and hurried back with the report, “We found the jail securely locked and the guards at their posts outside the gates, but when we opened it we found no one inside.”
On hearing this report, the captain of the temple guard and the high priests did not know what to make of the affair. Someone then came up to them, pointing out, “Look, there! Those men you put in jail are standing over there in the temple, teaching the people.” At that, the captain went off with the guard and brought them in, but without any show of force, for fear of being stoned by the crowd. When they had led them in and made them stand before the Sanhedrin, the high priest began the interrogation in this way: “We gave you strict orders not to teach about that name, yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us responsible for that man’s blood.” To this, Peter and the apostles replied: “Better for us to obey God than men! The God of our fathers has raised up Jesus whom you put to death, hanging him on a tree. He whom God has exalted at his right hand as ruler and savior is to bring repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. We testify to this. So too does the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those that obey him.”
From a homily by Saint John Chrysostom, bishop Make known to us, Lord, the one you choose
In those days, Peter, stood up in the midst of the disciples and said… As the fiery spirit to whom the flock was entrusted by Christ and as the leader in the band of the apostles, Peter always took the initiative in speaking: My brothers, we must choose from among our number. He left the decision to the whole body, at once augmenting the honor of those elected and avoiding any suspicion of partiality. For such great occasions can easily lead to trouble.
Did not Peter then have the right to make the choice himself? Certainly he had the right, but he did not want to give the appearance of showing special favor to anyone. Besides he was not yet endowed with the Spirit. And they nominated two, we read, Joseph, who was called Barsabbas and surnamed Justus, and Matthias. He himself did not nominate them; all present did. But it was he who brought the issue forward, pointing out that it was not his own idea but had been suggested to him by a scriptural prophecy. So he was speaking not as a teacher but as an interpreter.
So, he goes on, we must choose from those men who lived in our company. Notice how insistent he is that they should be eyewitnesses. Even though the Spirit would come to ratify the choice, Peter regards this prior qualification as most important.
Those who lived in our company, to continue the passage, all through the time when the Lord Jesus came and went among us. He refers to those who had dwelt with Jesus, not just those who had been his disciples. For of course from the very beginning many had followed him. Notice how it is written that Peter himself was one of the two who had listened to John, and followed Jesus.
All through the time when the Lord Jesus came and went among us, to continue further, beginning with the baptism of John – rightly so, because no one knew what had happened before that time, although they were to know of it later through the Spirit.
Up to the day, Peter added, on which he was taken up from us – one of these must be made a witness along with us of his resurrection. He did not say “a witness of the rest of his actions” but only a witness of the resurrection. That witness would be more believable who could declare that he who ate and drank and was crucified also rose from the dead. He needed to be a witness not of the times before or after that event, and not of the signs and wonders, but only of the resurrection itself. For the rest happened by general admission, openly; but the resurrection took place secretly, and was known to these men only.
And they all prayed together, saying: You, Lord, know the hearts of men; make your choice known to us. You, not we. Appropriately they said that he knew the hearts of men, because the choice was to be made by him, not by others.
They spoke with such confidence, because someone had to be appointed. They did not say “choose” but make known to us the chosen one; the one you choose, they said, fully aware that everything was preordained by God. They then drew lots. For they did not think themselves worthy to make the choice of their own accord, and therefore they wanted some sign for their instruction.
Fordham University’s Radio Station WFUV News Director , George Bodarky responds To TCE and our complaints about Sunday afternoon News From Ireland program and Declan O’Byrne’s biased pro-culture of death endless pro-Mcaleese rants.
Mrs. Mary Mcleese is you may recall is the pro-homosexual, pro abortion , pro contraception , pro euthanasia pro- female priests, pseudo Catholic, Independent Fianna Fail , ex- Prime Minister of Ireland.
Mr. Bodarky’s response is as follows,
Thank you very much for reaching out to us. It’s very much appreciated when listeners take the time to hold us accountable for news coverage, whether locally produced or the news from Ireland. As you might be aware, the news from Ireland is a very valuable service to listeners here in the New York metropolitan area. It’s a critical way for Irish listeners in our region to remain connected to events back “home.” As with all of our news coverage, we want to be comprehensive and accurate, and present multiple viewpoints. In listening back to Declan O’Byrne’s coverage of Ms. McAleese’s comments at a Rome conference, we didn’t flag any personal bias on Declan’s part. He attributed all of Ms. McAleese’s viewpoints to Ms. McAleese. That said, while objective in his reporting, I would agree that his story was lengthier than necessary and could have used a firm edit. Ms. McAleese’s comments at the Voices of Faith conference received a fair amount of coverage from other objective news sources, and again, coverage of this event falls within WFUV’s mission of providing multiple viewpoints on issues, including issues involving the Catholic Church. Independent, objective journalism is always our goal in the WFUV newsroom, but so is the importance of an edit, in which Declan could have done better in this instance. We will communicate that message to him.

From the letter to the Hebrews 4:14 – 5:10 Jesus Christ, the great high priest
Since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast to our profession of faith. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weakness, but one who was tempted in every way that we are, yet never sinned. So let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and favor and to find help in time of need.
Every high priest is taken from among men and made their representative before God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He is able to deal patiently with erring sinners, for he himself is beset by weakness and so must make sin offerings for himself as well as for the people. One does not take this honor on his own initiative, but only when called by God as Aaron was.
Even Christ did not glorify himself with the office of high priest; he received it from the One who said to him,
“You are my Son; today I have begotten you”; just as he says in another place, “You are a priest forever,according to the order of Melchizedek.”
In the days when he was in the flesh, he offered prayers and supplications with loud cries and tears to God, who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered; and when perfected, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him, designated by God as high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.
From an Easter homily by Saint Melito of Sardis, bishop The lamb that was slain has delivered us from death and given us life
There was much proclaimed by the prophets about the mystery of the Passover: that mystery is Christ, and to him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
For the sake of suffering humanity he came down from heaven to earth, clothed himself in that humanity in the Virgin’s womb, and was born a man. Having then a body capable of suffering, he took the pain of fallen man upon himself; he triumphed over the diseases of soul and body that were its cause, and by his Spirit, which was incapable of dying, he dealt man’s destroyer, death, a fatal blow.
He was led forth like a lamb; he was slaughtered like a sheep. He ransomed us from our servitude to the world, as he had ransomed Israel from the land of Egypt; he freed us from our slavery to the devil, as he had freed Israel from the hand of Pharaoh. He sealed our souls with his own Spirit, and the members of our body with his own blood.
He is the One who covered death with shame and cast the devil into mourning, as Moses cast Pharaoh into mourning. He is the One who smote sin and robbed iniquity of offspring. He is the One who brought us out of slavery into freedom, out of darkness into light, out of death into life, out of tyranny into an eternal kingdom; who made us a new priesthood, a people chosen to be his own for ever. He is the Passover that is our salvation.
It is he who endured every kind of suffering in all those who foreshadowed him. In Abel he was slain, in Isaac bound, in Jacob exiled, in Joseph sold, in Moses exposed to die. He was sacrificed in the Passover lamb, persecuted in David, dishonored in the prophets.
It is he who was made man of the Virgin, he who was hung on the tree; it is he who was buried in the earth, raised from the dead, and taken up to the heights of heaven. He is the mute lamb, the slain lamb, the lamb born of Mary, the fair ewe. He was seized from the flock, dragged off to be slaughtered, sacrificed in the evening, and buried at night. On the tree no bone of his was broken; in the earth his body knew no decay. He is the One who rose from the dead, and who raised man from the depths of the tomb.
Declan O’Byrne’s news from Ireland at 2:00pm on Sundays (90.7FM In NY and Northern NJ) has become a serious concern to both us and our extended family and friends
In this last show, this past Sunday, he went on an anti-Catholic tirade in a very lengthy support of Mrs. Mary McAleese as if she was either his mother or some form of a new Saint. Mrs. McAleese, as you folks I am sure know well, is not only the former President of Ireland but an apostate Catholic. She opposes our Church’s teaching on homosexuality , most likely due to her outspoken pro-sodomite son. She tells European Catholics the Church is wrong on its teachings and once adopting this position, as we have seen elsewhere, one naturally gravitates towards cherry picking other Church teachings each person’s personal interpretation and emotions feels at odds with today. She opposes celibate male Priesthood and believes Priests should also be Priestesses , married, and or homosexual. She opposes our Church’s teaching on contraception which gave rise the legalization of abortion
As for the murder of the unborn, Declan O’Byrne, continued to rave on as to Mrs. McAleese support of Ireland’s referendum on the 8th Amendment overrun attempt, while pro-life Irish Catholics are largely rejecting the Government’s plan for a UK-style abortion regime in Ireland. This former President of Ireland, it is believed, has animosity towards our Roman Catholic Church due to family members being abused by a Priest, Father Malachy Finnegan, in her northern Ireland homeland.
My wife and I have this newsblog to which we network with both other Catholic apostolates and over a thousand different connected souls to which we intend to inform not only of this situation but other similar outrageous predicaments to which everyday Catholics can have an impact. In today’s world unlike the Catholic world of years ago only large public outcry has any semblance of a substantial impact. There are many people that to this day gather round the radio to listen to the news from Ireland on Sundays and this version of the news corrupts and mis-forms the youth of the tri-state area. Mrs. McAlesse was also just recently ‘officially’ banned in sanctions by the Vatican from speaking in Rome at a Women’s Day Conference due to her apostate anti-Catholic views which was also not mentioned.
These highly subjective ant-Catholic news items become a presentation of WFUV views and by extension the Jesuit Catholic University of Fordham in the Bronx and its extended NYC locations representing same and Irish people & Irish American people in general and are more over are false and highly offensive – Please help to correct this by letting as many people as possible know of this tragic situation going on at Fordham University, WFUV and the beloved Ceol na nGael program which we may have to abandon and urge other Irish Catholics to do same as part of their after Mass Sundays sacrifice.
Here are some stories substantiating Mrs. McAleese anti-Catholic views if you had not already known of her opposition to Catholicism

From a sermon by Saint Leo the Great, pope The virtue of charity
In the gospel of John the Lord says: In this will all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love for each other. In a letter of the same apostle we read: Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God; he who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
The faithful should therefore enter into themselves and make a true judgment on their attitudes of mind and heart. If they find some store of love’s fruit in their hearts, they must not doubt God’s presence within them. If they would increase their capacity to receive so great a guest, they should practice greater generosity in doing good, with persevering charity.
If God is love, charity should know no limit, for God cannot be confined.
Any time is the right time for works of charity, but these days of Lent provide a special encouragement. Those who want to be present at the Lord’s Passover in holiness of mind and body should seek above all to win this grace, for charity contains all other virtues and covers a multitude of sins.
As we prepare to celebrate that greatest of all mysteries, by which the blood of Jesus Christ did away with our sins, let us first of all make ready the sacrificial offerings of works of mercy. In this way we shall give to those who have sinned against us what God in his goodness has already given us.
Let us now extend to the poor and those afflicted in different ways a more open-handed generosity, so that God may be thanked through many voices and the relief of the needy supported by our fasting. No act of devotion on the part of the faithful gives God more pleasure than that which is lavished on his poor. Where he finds charity with its loving concern, there he recognizes the reflection of his own fatherly care.
In these acts of giving do not fear a lack of means. A generous spirit is itself great wealth. There can be no shortage of material for generosity where it is Christ who feeds and Christ who is fed. In all this activity there is present the hand of him who multiplies the bread by breaking it, and increasing it by giving it away.
The giver of alms should be free from anxiety and full of joy. His gain will be greatest when he keeps back least for himself. The holy apostle Paul tells us: He who provides seed for the sower will also provide bread for eating; he will provide you with more seed, and will increase the harvest of your goodness, in Christ Jesus our Lord, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever. Amen.
