PROMOTING LIFE

PEOPLE PRAYING AT CROSS

DAY OF PENANCE & PRAYER

You may not live in Colorado, but you are still being called upon to participate in a day of penance and prayer by the Catholic bishops of Colorado in responsive to the eye-opening investigative undercover videos concerning Planned Parenthood and the selling of aborted baby organs.

"We call on all people of good will in Colorado and beyond to pray that those involved in research and medicine will fix their sights on recognizing the sacredness of life and refrain from putting human life at the service of science. A society can only be considered socially just if it protects the most vulnerable among us."

Please mark this day in your calendar and pray in solidarity with the Catholic faithful in Colorado.



 

@ SYMBOL

SYMBOL FOR LIFE

A new pro-life initiative is underway at the heart of it is the @ symbol. It is the creation of Tyler Blanski who was looking for a fresh, positive way to spread the pro-life message. Blanski says writer's block (he's an author) led him to the idea. One day, as he sat at his keyboard, he noticed the @ symbol was perfect way to illustrate life. He said the "a" represents the beginning, and it is cradled as if in the womb. He decided to put in in a Marian blue box and use the symbol to create a Facebook page in the hopes of drawing others to life. If you have Facebook, you can even get the symbol to overlap your profile pic. Read his article entitled: "Every Story Has a Beginning" on the website, The Catholic Gentleman. Then scroll down for the details.


PRIEST FOR LIFE FR. PAVONE

TO: PARISHIONERS

FROM: FR. FRANK PAVONE, NATIONAL DIR.

Priests for Life has helped expose to the public that Planned Parenthood, in violation of the law, is selling the body parts of aborted babies. You can help bring this to an end. Please go to the website BabyBodyParts.com, where you can see the videos that have revealed this, can join a prayer campaign about it, and can take action so that Congress can stop your tax dollars from funding these activities. All parishioners are asked to avoid giving any support whatsoever to Planned Parenthood. Thank you for standing with us in the fight!


ELDERLY ON SOFA

RESPECTING LIFE MEANS… honoring the dignity of the human person from conception to natural death and in our culture, the elderly are marginalized because they don't fit the youth-centered demographic. You can help thwart that ideology, by celebrating the elderly on National Senior Citizen's Day, Friday, Aug. 21. Consider visiting your elderly relatives,


Prayer of the Elderly

Dear Lord, as my life declines and my energies decrease, more than ever hold me by Your Power, that I may not offend You, but daily increase in Your Love. Give me strength to work in Your Service til the last day of my life. Help me to ever have an increasing dread of venial sin or whatever would cause the slightest withdrawal of Your Love. All day long and at night keep me close to Your Heart; and should I die, ere the morning breaks, may I go rejoicing in that vision of Your entrancing beauty, never to be separated from You. Amen.

The Sunday Funnies

Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical. A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm. 

At Morris' next checkup, the doctor observed, "You're really doing great, aren't you, Morris?" 

He replied, "I sure am! Doing just as you said, Doc: 'Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.'"

Stunned, the doctor responded, "I didn't say that! I said, 'You've got a heart murmur. Be careful!'"

The Sunday Funnies

An elderly man lay dying in his bed. Suddenly he smelled the aroma of his favorite chocolate chip cookies wafting up the stairs. He gathered his remaining strength, and lifted himself from the bed. Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom. He pulled himself together and with great effort, gripped the stair railing with both hands, crawling down the stairs.

With labored breath, he leaned against the doorframe, gazing into the kitchen. Were it not for his bodily pain, he would have thought himself already in heaven: there, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table were literally hundreds of his favorite chocolate chip cookies. Was it heaven? Or, was it one final act of heroic love from his devoted wife, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man? 

With heroic effort, he threw himself toward the table, landing on his knees in a rumpled posture. His parched lips parted: the wondrous taste of the cookie was already in his mouth, seemingly bringing him back to life.

The aged and withered hand trembled on its way to a cookie at the edge of the table, when it was suddenly smacked with a spatula by his wife.

"Stay out of those," she said. "They're for the funeral."

A Prayer Upon Waking

Dear God:

So far today, I've done all right. I haven't gossiped, and I haven't lost my temper. I haven't been grumpy, nasty or selfish, and I'm really glad of that! But in a few minutes, God, I'm going to get out of bed, and from then on, I'm probably going to need a lot of help.

Thank you! 

Amen.
