Catholics MUST Be ProLife:Action!(3)

A 4D ultrasound test is a way of reproducing a moving image of your baby inside your womb. The 4D ultrasound uses sound waves to create this moving image. In a 3D ultrasound, you can see a three-dimensional image of your baby. A 4D ultrasound takes this experience to the next level. It creates an effect that is similar to watching a live video. Using this technology, you can see what your baby is doing at that moment inside your womb. In fact, you can even see if your baby is yawning or smiling at that particular moment!

This thread is dedicated to sharing news about pro-life issues.

Where possible, we suggest that bloggers make and respond to calls to action in defence of the unborn child – whether that entails emailing MPs or supporting various vigils etc.
Try not to simply post a link to news – publish an extract and/or make a suggestion about possible action, that will encourage readers to click your link.

Among all the crimes which can be committed against life, procured abortion has characteristics making it particularly serious and deplorable. The Second Vatican Council defines abortion, together with infanticide, as an “unspeakable crime”.54
But today, in many people’s consciences, the perception of its gravity has become progressively obscured. The acceptance of abortion in the popular mind, in behaviour and even in law itself, is a telling sign of an extremely dangerous crisis of the moral sense, which is becoming more and more incapable of distinguishing between good and evil, even when the fundamental right to life is at stake. Given such a grave situation, we need now more than ever to have the courage to look the truth in the eye and to call things by their proper name, without yielding to convenient compromises or to the temptation of self-deception. In this regard the reproach of the Prophet is extremely straightforward: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness” (Is 5:20). Especially in the case of abortion there is a widespread use of ambiguous terminology, such as “interruption of pregnancy”, which tends to hide abortion’s true nature and to attenuate its seriousness in public opinion. Perhaps this linguistic phenomenon is itself a symptom of an uneasiness of conscience. But no word has the power to change the reality of things: procured abortion is the deliberate and direct killing, by whatever means it is carried out, of a human being in the initial phase of his or her existence, extending from conception to birth.

The moral gravity of procured abortion is apparent in all its truth
if we recognize that we are dealing with murder…

  1. I’m sure that many here will already be familiar with the excellent pro-life work carried out by Human Life International (Ireland) – they work tirelessly to promote the sanctity of life, particularly the unborn. They promote fasting & prayer (especially the Rosary) to combat the grave immorality of abortion. Their website is here: https://humanlife.ie

    • Ben,

      Sorry if I sound ungrateful, but the fact that abortion ended up being legalised in Ireland – a group of us were over there in the days prior to the referendum, only to be disgracefully abused and insulted (I resolved never to return) – makes me wonder (and did at the time) what on EARTH the pro-lifers were doing, how much pressure did they put on their (largely if not wholly apostate) bishops and clergy.

      From an Irish background myself, I am horrified that things have become so bad over in that once great Catholic country that unborn babies are being murdered there, as just about everywhere else. I hate to sound hyper-critical of the pro-life movement but “excellent” isn’t a word I ever apply to the “professional” pro-lifers here.

      Apart from the informative emails I receive from our resident (non-Catholic) pro-lifer, Wendy, the only emails I receive from the formal pro-life organisations are begging for money. I’ve labelled them for SPAM, to be frank, but they still roll in… As I’ve written, more than once, to the Big Chief at SPUC, and never received an answer, I can’t help wondering that, if one’s mortgage payment depends on abortion being legal, just how much effort would one really put into having the law repealed?

      In my view, all full time pro-life posts should be voluntary – retired, part-time employees, whatever – to ensure that maximum effort is put into the fight by a “workforce” with no personal interest, beyond saving the lives of the babies in the womb.

  2. Apologies if I inadvertently caused any annoyance or offence. That certainly wasn’t my intention. I’m not as experienced in the pro-life movement, but do have admiration and respect for anyone trying to uphold the sanctity of life – and HLI are not necessarily seeking financial help, but ask for our prayers and whatever assistance we’re able to offer. Again, sincere apologies – and best of intentions.

    • Ben,

      There’s no need to apologise at all. You’re new to this blog, so I should perhaps have emphasised (as do our House Rules) that we do not make personal remarks on here, but stick to the issues. Occasionally, we get idiots coming on trying to use the blog for their own daft ends, but, more often than not, if we ignore them they go away (if not, I make them disappear!)

      I was not meaning to criticise you, personally, at all and, like you, I do admire those who are actively working in defence of the unborn. That’s why we have a dedicated pro-life thread, so that Wendy, in particular, to whom I referred in my original post above, has a port of call where she can post her information, links etc.

      Hopefully, you will use it as well to keep us informed about pro-life events but I have to repeat my concerns about the sluggish pro-life movement. Let me give you a highly topical example.

      I have written to a number of “pro-choice” MPs who advocate a second Brexit referendum “because we know so much more now about Brexit than we did in 2016.”

      I have suggested that this same point can be made about the Abortion Act. We definitely know much more now about life in the womb than we did in 1967, so what about a national debate, referendum if possible, on whether or not the 1967 Abortion Act should be repealed. I include a link to a 3D / 4D video in my email.

      So far, the responses have been zero. Zilch.

      However, I am one person among millions. Who cares what I think?

      Were I in a position of some authority – say Chairman/Director of a national pro-life movement, with the motivation and funding to launch a campaign to argue the case that we know much more now about life in the womb than we did in 1967, they would surely have to sit up and take notice.

      But not a word from these groups who seem to be able to afford to publish glossy leaflets and magazines, and organise conferences here, there and everywhere.

      Yet, when they do hold public events such as the 40 days for Life (which I have attended) they do not set up a separate table with literature and a representative able to speak to passers-by. They pray – which, of course, is wonderful, but it seems odd to me, having been heckled at one of those events, to be told not to engage in any conversation, just pray. Why not do both?

      Anyway, you, certainly, had the best of intentions by coming on to promote HLI (Ireland) and since you are new to the pro-life movement, we can’t really blame you for the referendum result over there 😀 So, please don’t take offence. None intended. Keep up the good work!

      God bless you!

  3. Dear BEN LOUIS
    Thank you for posting on here it is a wonderful Blog run by an equally wonderful Lady Patricia and many thanks to her for giving so much of her time to it ….in the brilliant video above yo u will hear a gentleman in every sense of the word speak with such love and compassion for people ……To be pro life is a great privilege and we must be brave

    • Thank you, Wendy. It is encouraging to read in the article which you linked to that freedom of speech is being upheld in these places.
      I also have a lot of respect for the work that TFP do in the pro-life movement. Here’s a link to their latest video:

      Thank you – and Patricia – for extending your welcome here. It is indeed a great blog.
      Very best wishes,
      Ben Louis.

      • Ben

        Those young men were wonderful in how they dealt with those nasty opponents, not least that woman trying to destroy the bagpipes and the man who spat in the face of one of the pro-lifers. Such violence in their characters either explains the fact that they have no problem killing unborn babies, OR is a result of it – they have become coursened to the point of being violent as a result of their pro-abortion beliefs and activities.

        However, TFP itself, despite the good work it does in pro-life and in defence of marriage, is a bit of a cause for concern, as we discovered when we discussed the matter in a dedicated thread
        https://catholictruthblog.com/2016/07/04/is-tradition-family-property-a-cult/

        There’s no doubt that they do good work (not least in the pro-life field) but I’d be interested in your thoughts about the areas of concern raised in our discussion back in 2016.

        • Thank you very much for providing the link to the earlier discussion from 2016. From a brief glance, it appears to be quite a long thread – but I will be sure to set some time aside to read it. I am not aware of many of the issues with the pro-life groups which you have kindly highlighted in your posts here, but I hope to become better informed over time. Thank you again for your replies.

    • CC,

      Thank you for that exhortation. We should, indeed, pray for NI today – I believe it’s at midnight that this diabolical law comes into force over there (also same-sex “marriage” is to be legalsed, despite the huge fight against it).

      • The most disgraceful part of this is that there has been no consultation whatsoever. The Catholic Church, all the Protestant Church, The Orange Order (!) and the Unionist Parties have condemned it. I sent this email to Julian Smith MP, but have not received a response:

        I am sending you this email regarding the Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Act 2019, and the amendment submitted by Stella Creasy MP. This Act will, unless there is a new executive by October 21st, result in the decriminalisation of abortion up to 28 weeks of gestation. This cut off point of 28 weeks is based on Criminal Justice Act (Northern Ireland) 1945, which has obviously not been updated to reflect the law change in England and Wales, where abortions are, since 1990, permitted up to 24 weeks, with exceptions for later procedures. Why does this new law not reflect the 1990 change? Is it not a way to lay the ground for abortion on demand throughout the pregnancy in Northern Ireland, as has recently happened in New York, for example? In 2017-18, 81 babies were born alive under 28 weeks, according to the Statistical profile of Children’s Health in Northern Ireland 2017-18. Will you, as Secretary of State, work to ensure provisions for conscientious objectors? Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are guaranteed Freedom of Thought, Conscience and Religion under Article 9 and Expression under Article 10 of the ECHR. Finally, does this new law not contradict the Northern Ireland Act 1998, which states in Section 6 (c) that a law is outside the legislative competence of the NI Assembly if it contradicts EU law, which it clearly does if it does not contain and conscience clause?

        I am deeply concerned by the high rate of abortion in England Wales, and the recent liberalisations in parts of the USA, and I believe that a similar situation will arise in Northern Ireland, where abortion, instead of being a rare exception, as the law intended, will become a form of contraception or an act which will be eventually viewed to be as harmless as taking an aspirin. Abortion is murder, and is never justified, because it always results in the death of an unborn child. That life begins at conception is a scientific fact, and the government should work to reduce abortions and provide alternatives, so that the need for abortion can be obsolete.

        • CC,

          Just skimmed your letter to Julian Smith MP – great stuff.

          Let us know if he replies (beyond the usual cursory acknowledgement or “the contents have been noted) !

      • Arlene Foster of the DUP has said that the law is an affront to human dignity and life and scientific advances mean that babies can be born alive and survive at 22,23 and 24 weeks.

        What refreshing clarity from a politician. The DUP is the only party in the UK which supports God’s Law and I think should all pray for it’s success. I for one thought about joining it on the basis of it’s pro-life views. Sinn Fein, the SDLP and Alliance should be ashamed. Sinn Fein cannot claim to speak for Ireland. Catholics are starting to vote unionist due to the Sinner’s liberalism, and I hope more see sense and do the same. More power to their elbow.

  4. The next threatened buffer zone seems likely to be imposed in Manchester. A lady who has been praying and witnessing outside Marie Stopes, Fallowfield, for the last 15 years! has been told by the Magistrates’ Court that she cannot stand within 100 metres of Marie Stopes.

    This consultation is open to everyone, no matter where you live, please support this pro-life group in Manchester by sending in your reply objecting to this buffer zone. Here is the link to follow.

    God bless.

    • Wendy,

      Thank you for that – I completed the survey and it didn’t take many minutes, despite the fact that I clicked to answer ALL the possible options. Strongly disagreed with everything!

      I urge other bloggers to take the ten minutes or so necessary to complete the survey, since these buffer zones are a disgraceful infringement on freedom of speech etc.

      An important point, it seems to me, is that only criminal behaviour as traditionally defined (physical assault, criminal damage to buildings, vehicles etc) should remain outlawed. Simply speaking to somone has never been illegal. Indeed, we are persistently approached in our towns and cities by people offering us leaflets to advertise shops and religious information etc. Nobody suggests putting buffer zones around those streets which would be tantamount to restricting the streets to commuters and shoppers.

      So, go for it, bloggers. Let’s put a dent in the influence exerted by these (laughably misnamed) pro-choice women.

  5. https://www.channel5.com/show/hate-crimes-uncensored/

    last night I sat and watched this in great sadness

    It made me remember in the early 70’s when as a young wife and Mum of mixed race children the dreadful storys I heard from other white Girls in mixed relationships who literally were forced into abortions by Parents ,Teachers ,Social Workers ..a whole plethora of people who you really thought would have been helpful and caring Those Girls dearly wanted those babies but because Society was different and threats of out on the street whatever and the fact they were told mixed race babies were unadoptable ……it was horrific

    Added to this the vile Abortion Act was very new but the Medical World realised this was a great way to curtail Immigrant Births no doubt of that

    When I as a married Woman used to go my Dr to confirm pregnancy ..they used to inject Toads then with urine and if the poor Amphibian layed eggs you were how archaic does that sound …….I would be grilled by the Dr about do you want this baby after all it will be mixed is it fair to to the child ,I used to say to him ..does your wife go to the hairdresser and he looked at me like I had took leave of my senses and do you sunbathe …?..of cousre he said so I said ok well this baby will never have to do that because it will have curls and also its tan thanks can you book me in to see a Midwife

    Then in Hospital after babies birth no sooner were up from the delivery suite yo u had pushy hopeful Drs with forms for sterilization i n their hand they got fleas in their ears also

    It was horrific and very painful at what should be such a joyous time ..they were very persistant and sadly after my 8 th child and a dangerous caesar ean I had to make the heartbreaking decision to be sterilized a young DR arrives by my bed and actually said to me …Ah the fecund [fertile ] Mrs Walker we have got your tubes at last i complained to a Snr Nurse who smiled and said he was only joking ..there was no lawsuits in those days

    So yes through severe racism thousands of poor babies lost there lives through no other reason but they would have been mixed and their broken hearted Mums felt they had to succumb to it through no other choice

    Its was through so many of these horror stories that put me me onto the PRO LIFE PATH …IN 1970….both my experiences and those other peoples.

    Tragic .

    Here is a little light hearted anecdote from my past about a very pro abortion Dr i had ……and the real battle i had to continue my pregnancys and get booked in for maternity care with him ..some years later he committed suicide ..

    • Wendy,

      Your questions (and explanation) to your doctor about “curls” and “sunbathing” are totally priceless. I laughed heartily. What a brilliant response to his pressure to abort your baby. Absolutely brilliant! Well done!

  6. Dear supporter,

    As you will have seen, in a desperately disappointing judgment, the Court of Appeal upheld the draconian Ealing Censorship Zone. You can read it here.

    The court largely avoided dealing with the substance of the appeal put before it, and as a result, we believe the chances of the Supreme Court giving permission to appeal are very high.

    As a result, Alina has applied for permission to appeal to the Supreme Court!

    https://www.gofundme.com/f/alinalegalfund
    Alina, along with her friends and allies, refuses to abandon women on the streets who just need a little help to prevent them from being coerced into abortion. The Be Here For Me campaign will not give up and we will continue to stand by Alina.

    The judgement from the Court of Appeal was especially disappointing as there was no mention of the rights of women to receive help, information and even prayer if they so need it. Our spokeswoman Elizabeth puts it well:

    “there is literally not a single sentence, not a single word, dedicated to the women who have been helped by the vigil, who are grateful for the vigil, and who have given the other side of the story”

    Once again, Alina, who isn’t wealthy, is taking a personal risk in leaving herself exposed to the legal costs of this challenge. She needs an additional £35,000 to be able to take the case forward and potentially set a significant precedent for women’s rights to receive help, free speech and the freedom to offer charity and prayer. This cost is heavily discounted because Alina’s legal team really believe in this case and are working mostly for free.

    ENABLE ALINA’S SUPREME COURT APPLICATION HERE
    Alina is standing up for the rights of vulnerable women at great personal risk and inconvenience. Let’s continue to have her back and raise the funds so that the stress of that aspect of the case is covered for her!

    Alina has been so encouraged by your faithfulness to her as a fellow campaigner. We are grateful to you for sharing, giving and writing in to encourage Alina.

    Best wishes,

    Sarah Bignell

      Thank you for that link about the NI priest who is calling for Canon Law to be implemented – the idiot politician who says the following, is wrong:

      However, pro-life SDLP MLA Dolores Kelly branded the comments “regrettable” and said that only the Vatican could make such an order.

      Wrong! Canon # 915 applies, so any priest can and should refuse Communion to any person known to publicly profess acceptance of abortion. That is a manifest public scandal.

      There is no place for comments under that report or I’d have posted one there.

  7. At this miserable time for the Church, here was one minor cheering incident:

    US Politician Joe Biden was denied communion at mass, on grounds that he “advocates for abortion”.

    Well done Father Robert Morey, of St Anthony’s Parish, Florence, South Carolina.

    No doubt Father will have some lickspittle Cardinal or Bishop hounding him over this, but he was in the right nonetheless.

  8. “Christian Hacking, 29, was arrested by police after he was seen praying outside an abortion clinic in London earlier this year. “

    Does this comment from the Telegraph report not say it all about life in “democratic” Britain today? You can actually get arrested for praying!

    • Wendy Walker 95,

      The problem with “checking out every candidate” is that just having a few pro-life MPs doesn’t really change anything. Unless the Parties change their pro-abortion policies, then to keep voting for individuals within Parties, is like putting a sticking plaster on a massive, gaping wound.

      I am outraged that the pro-life groups are not being given air time to educate the public about abortion and demanding a review of the ’67 Abortion Act. That’s the least they should be doing during an election campaign.

    Abortion alert concerning Scottish General Election Candidates.
    Thankfully very few have signed up to this Abortion Pledge.
    Maybe it’s because BPAS abortion centres don’t exist in Scotland or because it is so awful.
    Still a handful of Scots signed it.
    Sadly one from my own diocese.
    Here’s the list.
    Ross Stalker, Lib Dem, Paisley and Ren North
    Heather Astbury, Renew, Edinburgh N &Leith
    Christine Jardine, Lib Dem, Edinburgh West
    Paul Sweeney, Labour, Glasgow NE
    Nicholas Moohan, Lib Dem, Glasgow NE
    Richard Thomson, SNP, Gordon
    Charles Dundas, Lib Dem, Livingston

    You can check here whether any of your candidates have signed the BPAS pledge to supersede the Abortion Act and extend abortion, even more irresponsibly because it’s without any stated conditions or time limits.

    Eileen McBride Michael Durnan don’t know what they have written down, but Nicola Sturgeon recently invited women from NI to come here to abort their babies, and SNP MPs voted to impose abortion legislation on Northern against the will of its people. Not only was this immoral, it was also undemocratic. The SNP of all parties should respect the rights of another devolved legislation.

    Sadly due to ill health, Father Francis McGachey has had to resign as Parish Priest of St Francis Xavier’s Carfin and Guardian of the Grotto. Father McGachey has served Carfin with great enthusiasm, devotion and dedication since 2011. Please remember Father McGachey in your prayers that his health will improve. Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for him. St Therese of Lisieux, pray for him.

    Father Sean Wyllie has been asked by Bishop Toal to serve the Parish over Advent and Christmas.

    Prayers please for a very pro life Priest thank you

  20. Very modern take on Madonna and Child
    Was anyone else deeply moved by the sight of Stella Creasy, below, Kemi Badenoch and Ellie Reeves being sworn in as MPs at the House of Commons with their tiny babies held close?

    I found the images a delightfully timely 21st Century version of Madonna and Child……

    ..
    Source Mail On Sunday writer Alexander Shulman …….i will be writing to her saying in Creaseys case I think Herod would be more apt stomach churning ugh

  21. Dear All
    PLEASE can I ask you to Pray to Our Blessed Lady of Gaudalupe Prayers of great Thanks to HER with regards of the closure of this wicked mill 50 years old it is a wonderful news and we should rejoice

  22. Call The Midwife season nine: What’s it about?
    Series eight focused heavily on the issue of women turning to back street abortions because they were unable to receive a termination legally provided by the NHS. Expect to see this continue in series nine, with the midwives campaigning for women’s rights to safe and legal abortion.

    As well as tackling sensitive social issues, expect to see more twists and turns in the personal lives of our Nonnatus House favourites, from Valerie coming to terms with her grandmother’s imprisonment to Lucille finding romance with Cyril.


    please note
    I watched last nights CALL THE MIDWIFE ………..IT WAS DISGUSTING…… a newborn baby was found in a dustbin it transpires her Mum was a housekeeper for a Catholic Priest ….who turns out to be the babys Father !!!!!!….Plus abortion was mentioned and from a previous series where a Nurses Grandma was an illegal abortionist went to prison well that is ongoing as well IT IS SO VERY IMPORTANT please write into THE BBC …this is only going to get worse shocking

  27. Wendy Walker,

    That is a fantastic article and fantastic news that the documentary “Strings Attached” was shown to the Ugandan Parliament and will be shown in other parts of Africa too. It’s something like that which we need in our Parliament(s) in the UK to waken up the idiot politicians who are in the grip of the pro-abortionists, who are lining their pockets, making money out of killing unborn children.

  28. I’ve just had a call from a reader in Wales, who tells me that the warrior pro-life activist, Ted Atkinson, one of our long-time readers and supporters, passed away this morning.

    Ted was imprisoned more than once for disobeying an ASBO (Anti-Social Behaviour Order) – these were originally introduced as a means of disciplining juvenile vandals! Caught sending graphic images of aborted babies to hospital chief(s) caused Ted to be “ASBO-d” and subsequently jailed when he refused to comply – in other words, he continued to confront those involved with the industry to look at the products of their “work”. The link below is not one of the most up to date but I keep getting “site not secure” when I try to visit the others – including tabloid reports – so if anyone can find a more recent report, please post it here.
    https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/uk-pro-life-activist-jailed-for-12-weeks-for-sending-pictures-of-aborted-ba

    Ted has been disabled for many years now – he attended one of our conferences, at which time he used two crutches to support himself. He has been confined to a wheelchair for a good while now.

    Ted did not mind at all being imprisoned for the pro-life cause and told me more than once how well treated he was by both staff and inmates alike. The young prisoners listened closely to what he said, both about the pro-life cause and about the Faith, expressing their sympathy that he should have been imprisoned for defending innocent babies in the womb. They clearly had sharper consciences that the prosecution lawyers and judges. Irony of ironies.

    I’m sure Ted will receive his reward now, but, as always, we pray for the repose of his soul and an early release from Purgatory, just in case he’s there en route to Heaven. May he rest in peace.

  29. Very sad news here ..Ted was amazing so polite and kind but he was a man of steel no pro abortionist could scare him
    R I P Ted with the millions of babies you tried to save

  30. Yesterday US senators voted (I think) 56 to 41 NOT to approve a bill which would outlaw the deliberate withdrawal of life saving measures to save a baby born alive as a result of a failed abortion.
    The bill was opposed by the majority of Democrats among whose members are many Catholics.
    Or rather what I would call CINOS – Catholics in name only.
    This bill had the full support of the Pro Life President Trump.

    This Lent we must double our prayers and actions to fight these satanists.

  31. https://www.itv.com/news/anglia/2018-05-04/catch-up-watch-the-most-recent-itv-news-anglia/………………………………………………….PLEASE watch this video it was o n Anglia tonight and featured Lutons success with Teen Pregnancys ..it features one woman MIchelle O’Callaghan with Schoolchildren boasting how she gave out 400 condoms in half an hour ….I live in Luton and its long time laybore run…..Alison Hadley used to work for Brook now runs anti teen pregnancy work at the UNi what hope is there for us .?….They dont mention though the abortions that have kept the pregnancy rate down ..appalling

  32. I stand corrected by the editor. Thanks for your prayers after taking legal advice a vigorous discussion with the police they have backed off and accepted for now at least that Margaret and I are not breaking the law in displaying images of dead baby saints who have been aborted in our cars together with accompanying pro life texts.

    The most pro life thing we can do is to get to regular mass and the sacraments. I repeat therefore that the church at moment in Italy and maybe later elsewhere in the world during the virus crisis should invoke the canon law which would allow the faithful to take communion home with them on days when they are prevented from going to mass. I also repeat that there is a precedent when Maximilian Kolbe kept the holy Eucharist in his spectacle case whilst in auschwitz and Titas Brandisima did a similar thing. Because of abortifacient use, abortion etc the world is in itself at the moment one big death camp. A prominent saint said when you hear that I can no longer celebrate the Eucharist count me as dead. Not that long ago Matt Talbot confirmed in writing that on one Sunday he attended 21 masses we should move like the French bishop (see lifesitenews) suggests to situation of dynamic evangelisation and sacramental life as opposed to the dreadful dynamic negativity and apostasy manifested by Pope Francis and his allies.
    Thanks again for you prayers,
    Liam and Margaret

    • Liam,

      The two people you name as having the Blessed Sacrament in their possession were both priests. Lay people should not be handling the Blessed Sacrament at all – and this is not at all a real crisis. There’s no need to close churches and so on. It’s just their lack of faith. The Polish bishops are not doing this, they are calling for MORE Masses.

    • Liam,

      I think you need to watch this short video which is an interview on EWTN with Bishop Schneider talking about his shock as a child witnessing Communion on the hand – what you are suggesting to cope with Coronavirus ban on Masses (which is a lack of faith in itself) is unbelievable for any Catholic to seriously suggest. I hope you will agree after you see this video (10 minutes)

    • Liam, I am assuming six things.

      (1) that you have NOT watched the video interview with Bishop Schneider because no-one with a genuinely Catholic heart and soul could watch that, listen to his words and still see nothing wrong with lay people handling the Blessed Sacrament. If you click on the words YouTube on the video it will take you through to YouTube where you can scroll down and read the comments. More than one person states that after seeing this interview they never again received in the hand. At least one person said they would now also receive only kneeling. I didn’t read all of the comments but enough to get a flavour of the fact that when faced with the truth about the dreadful abuse of Communion in the hand – as with those who are faced with the truth about abortion – several, if not all completely changed their minds about how to receive the Eucharist.

      (2) that you have not read the article by Christopher Ferrara on the top thread, which is dedicated to discussing the Coronavirus and the unconscionable actions of Pope Francis and other weak bishops, who have effectively ordered the faithful to withdraw from worshipping God and seeking His help. Again, if you read that article by Christopher Ferrara, you could not possibly think it is a good thing to ban Masses, close churches etc, let alone take the Blessed Sacrament home – like those shocking women who act as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, whom I’ve witnessed throwing the pyx (intended for a sick person) into her bag as though it were nothing more important than her lipstick.

      (3) that you have not realised that the current code of canon law is – like everything else in the Catholic Church these days – “new” I’d like to check out the 1917 code, to see if there is any such permission granted there. I doubt it. I don’t have a copy though, so if anyone else can advise on this, I’d be grateful.

      (4) that you have not read canon 935 in the new code carefully enough; it states: “It is not lawful for anyone to keep the blessed Eucharist in personal custody or to carry it around, unless there is an urgent pastoral need and the prescriptions of the diocesan Bishop are observed. But there IS no urgent pastoral need – the Pope and Bishops are merely attempting to create such a need, as they have contrived a priest shortage in order to recruit lay people into sanctuaries at Mass.

      (5) that you do not know the history of the Japanese Catholics who were denied Mass and the Sacraments for 200 years, but kept the Faith through prayer (Rosary) and the Catechism.

      (6) that you are unaware of the private revelations from Our Lord to great saints (such as St John Vianney, Patron Saint of priests) where He revealed that Spiritual Communions are very pleasing to Him.
      https://finerfem.wordpress.com/2018/01/21/the-amazing-efficacy-of-a-spiritual-communion/

      Thus, in summary, if we cannot receive Holy Communion from a priest, we ought to simply make a fervent Spiritual Communion, asking Our Lord for all the graces we need to overcome our sinfulness and to live in a state of grace.

      It’s a given, a dead cert, this is will be very much more pleasing to God than the kind of endangerment to the Sacred Species, the risk of sacrilege, which would be part and parcel of allowing the Blessed Sacrament to be placed into the custody of individual lay people.

      I actually knew someone some years ago who lived in South America where this does happen, and, believe me, she displayed the most casual attitude to the Real Presence. Familiarity – the old saying goes – breeds contempt.

      So, please be aware that nobody on this blog will support your now repeated calls for the implementation of Canon 935. No way.

      • Liam Jenkinson

        It is not for the faithful to touch the Blessed Sacrament at any time, this is a privilege reserved to the priest whose hands alone are consecrated for the purpose of celebrating Mass and administering Holy Communion.

        The examples you quoted, St. Maximilian Kolbe & Titus Brandsma, were priests who were perfectly entitled to carry the Blessed Sacrament and reserve it as they did during a time of persecution. Their actions by no means represents some kind of precedent for lay people to argue that certain circumstances should allow for the faithful to carry and/or reserve the Blessed Sacrament. Neither do references to the sacramental life of the early Christians cut any ice against 15 centuries of subsequent Church teaching. Pius XII condemned this error as “Antiquarianism”.

        The upshot of it all is that you need to change your spiritual director with haste. Listen again to what the holy Bishop Athanasius Schneider has to say about the Blessed Sacrament, he speaks the mind of the Church and not the mind of the Protestant Vatican II reformers.

        A further piece of advice, if you will permit, is that you should never declare the Pope to be an apostate. No matter how we feel about Pope Francis and the scandal he represents to the Church, we are not permitted by God to declare him a formal heretic, which falls into the category of apostate. When we exceed our remit as laity by declaring the Pope an apostate then we have to understand that it is we who have just cut ourselves off from the Church by our angry rash judgment.

  33. I have clarified with my spiritual director that I am a catholic in truth and in heart and that I’m entitled to hold my views on Cannon 935 etc. I follow all the mainstream traditionalist blogs and I have seen the Schneider video twice as well as Ferrarers texts. From my lifetime in commerce and industry i learned that it is very dangerous to make assumptions without validation and that people can be sincerely wfong. Because we have an apostate pope who has effectively done what even Hitler couldn’t do I.e close all churches should not mean that in a time of self imposed persecution the faithful shouldn’t not be denied a sacramental life. One thought does occur which of course could be sincerely wrong is that to have people sat in their houses without a sacramental life making spiritual communion is not far off Protestantism. The whole process should concentrate our minds on the centrality and crucial importance of the sacramental life rather than getting bogged down in how they are ‘perfectly administered’.

    Prayers and love,

    Liam and Margaret

    • Liam Jenkinson,

      I’m shocked at your remark that making a Spiritual Communion is “not far off Protestantism”

      Editor put a link to a webpage giving quotes from Our Lord about how Spiritual Communion pleases Him when we are unable to receive the Blessed Sacrament.

      Are you suggesting Our Lord was a Protestant?

      Frankly, I think that Catholics who continue to receive in the hand, once they’ve seen the interview with Bishop Schneider, are not far off Protestantism, to use your own words.

  34. I have just discovered and confirmed that canon 935 has been invoked in respect of a senior seminarian from Rome who is in isolation/quarantine because of the virus. Love and prayers Liam and Margaret

    • Liam Jenkinson

      If he’s a “senior seminarian” then it is likely that he has already become a deacon. He’s not a lay person and your argument remains fallacious.

      • Athanasius,

        Frankly, it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if priests were giving the Blessed Sacrament to lay people to take home, using the virus as an excuse. Belief in the Real Presence has gone out of the window since the new Mass and Extraordinary Ministers were introduced.

        • Lily

          Yes, you’re quite right, they’ve been allowing the laity to carry the Blessed Sacrament around the streets and into people’s homes for decades. I’ll never believe that these people have the fullness of the Catholic Faith, or indeed have the faith at all, particularly the clergy.

  35. Iv been to another spiritual director I was wrong to call the Pope and apostate. But I am allowed to hold the view that some of his statements could constitute apostasy. According to the director I am entitled to hold the opinion I have expressed about canon 935. A person in isolation because of the virus has been allowed to retain the Eucharist and give himself communion each day. The Pope should extend this facility in Italy and elsewhere. A primary school in this area have the Eucharist and the blessed sacrament exposed each Friday for adoration by the pupils in the school chapel in the absence of a Priest.

    • Liam,

      You have been so protestantised – like the majority of modern Catholics – that you just don’t get it and nobody here is going to help you to recognise the horror of Communion in the hand. You are relying on a modernist priest to act as your “spiritual director”, so that confirms my view that nobody here can help you. We reject totally the concept of laity handling the Blessed Sacrament, as would your “spiritual director” if he had an ounce of authentic Catholic sense and devotion to Our Lord in His Real Presence. Sounds to me like he couldn’t (with all due respect) direct the traffic on an empty country road, never mind souls seeking guidance at a time, not only of health crisis, but the worst ever religious, spiritual and moral crisis ever to hit the Church.

      Add to that the fact that this is a thread dedicated to pro-life issues and I permitted this off topic exception (as I did when you posted on the wrong thread previously) foolishly believing that you would see the truth in our comments about your beloved canon 935, but given that we are up against not just another modernist Catholic layman, but your modernist “spiritual director” as well, I can see that – as I have already said – we are not going to be able to help you to see the huge scandal which is the handling of the Blessed Sacrament by lay people. You say you have watched the Bishop Schneider interview twice and remain as convinced as ever of the “right” of the laity to handle the Blessed Sacrament. I rest my case.

      In future, Liam, if you wish to comment on this blog, please check the sidebar (right hand side) for the current topics and select the one upon which you wish to comment. If you don’t want to comment on any of those, then go to the General Discussion thread. It is very disruptive to ignore the topics, as you have done twice, and then take up a thread with your own hobby horse, distracting the rest of us from the points we want to make. This thread is ONLY for pro-life issues. NOT liturgical matters.

      Now, both your “spiritual director” and you are WRONG about invoking canon 935. End of discussion.

      Please note: your posts will now be moderated, and nothing on this topic will be published here, so I recommend strongly that you leave this matter and, if you wish to comment on the faithlessness of priests closing down churches and failing to say Masses, that you do so on the Coronavirus thread at the top of the page. THAT should be your concern, that you are being denied access to the Real Presence in your parish. Unless you are in the Polish archdiocese where the archbishop has refused to follow the faithless clergy in other places – he insists that we need to pray [in our churches] MORE not less at this time of crisis. Focus on THAT and not the arrogance of laity who want to play at being priests.

      I am therefore closing down this discussion now. Any bloggers who wish to comment on the closure of churches etc, please do so on the Coronavirus thread. If you have something to say about abortion or euthanasia, this thread is for you!

    • Liam Jenkinson

      With respect, it sounds like your hopping from one Modernist spiritual director to another. Go ask a Traditional Catholic priest and he’ll give you the Church’s answer.

      As regards the school you speak of, is it a priest who puts the Blessed Sacrament in the monstance at the beginning of adoration and then removes it at the end, or is it a lay person? If it’s the latter then I’m afraid it’s Protestantism disguised as Catholicism.

      Editor: this has gone into moderation because you used Liam’s name. However, he won’t be replying on this thread because the discussion is now closed. Liam may read your response of course, so thank you for that, but would others let this go now, as this is the pro-life thread and no more off topic posts will be published. If any further comments on this or any other off topic subject appear, I will delete them as soon as I see them. Thank you all for your co-operation.

  36. LifeSite News has posted what is apparently the latest satirical “Choice42” video debunking pro-death claims about abortion:

    This one addresses the lunatic trial balloon (or is that the lunatic lead balloon) that consent to sex doesn’t mean consent to pregnancy!

    (I know Editor will want to glom onto these donuts, but try to restrain yourself, Editor, even though today is a break from Lent….)

    • RCA Victor,

      You know me so too well!

      Speaking of “consent” though, in this context, I note that Alex Salmond was acquitted on all the charges against him of sexual harassment at various levels.

      I found his situation interesting. He’s no saint, obviously, by his own admission. He admitted liaison(s) but insisted they were always consensual.
      https://news.sky.com/story/alex-salmond-trial-scotlands-former-first-minister-acquitted-of-all-sexual-assault-charges-11962184

      I have no problem believing that. One feature of these recent allegations, accusations, court trials (including against Harvey Weinstein) is that – note this – none of the women were ever left holding the baby, if you get my drift.

      Not accusing them of lying or exaggeration or even outright fabrication (as Alex Salmond has done) but, well, I just find it interesting…

    The government has u-turned yet again under pressure from abortion providers to use the Corona Virus crisis to legalise medical abortions at home with NO medical supervision! It is a fact that medical abortions have a higher rate of complications than surgical abortions so put women at greater risk. Normally, the first pills have to be taken at a clinic after a physical examination and a scan to confirm dates, as well as to check the baby is developing in the uterus so ruling out an ectopic pregnancy. These vital checks will now be bypassed with just a Tele-med consultaion.

    Once the pills are received by the woman, they could be given to anyone! This rushed through, ill considered change in the abortion law is horrific and further endangers the well being of the most vulnerable women but is indeed a gift to their abusers: sex traffickers, pimps, incestuous families and violent men who threaten their partners to make them comply. At least with the first pills taken under medical supervision (legal requirement until yesterday) there was no chance of the pills falling into the hands of those who would use them to force a woman to have an abortion at home.

    Bpas and Marie Stopes abortion providers are celebrating as they have been trying to get DIY abortions legalised for some time and pounced on this opportunity now to push unsupervised home abortions as an emergency bill, using the excuse that women might not be able to get to clinics due to the Corona lock down; they have won!

    Normal debate and voting before any new law is passed by Parliament no longer applied, thanks to the present Corona crisis. Shame on our government for bowing under pressure from a powerful abortion industry and the RCOG.

    While nearly everyone else is afraid for their livlihoods, Bpas and Marie Stopes have secured their ever increasing profits will go on, paid for (98% of) out of a cash strapped NHS funds. We are talking millions of pounds annually.

    This is not a good day for women at all, only the most avid abortion rights feminists were pushing for this change in the law as well as those who make a good living from abortion; the taking of unborn human lives.

    Please consider contacing your MP to ask for this dangerous and rushed through law to be revoked. Easy to do in this link below.

    • Wendy Walker,

      That is horrendous news, I agree. However, I know there’s no point in writing to my MP because he is totally pro-abortion. I think there’s really no point in writing to the pro-abortion politicians because they just won’t bother, our letters will be put in the bin.

  38. SPUC Scotland
    25 March at 13:17 ·
    One of SPUC’s supporters, a young medical student, has written and sent the following letter to their MP regarding the attempts from pro-abortion bodies to hijack the Coronavirus Bill.

    “I am writing with concern regarding the news that BPAS (Britain’s largest abortion provider) may be lobbying MPs to amend the current Coronavirus Bill to allow for the approval of abortion by a single doctor, nurse or midwife (rather than two doctors as the current law requires), and that this abortion procedure may then be conducted entirely at home with a lack of medical supervision.

    This follows on from the Government’s announcement yesterday that abortions could take place at home. This was later rescinded, however the aim of BPAS lobbyists appears to be that they wish this to be brought into law.

    This to me appears to be dangerous in the extreme. I am sure you are aware that a medical abortion, like any traumatic medical intervention, has numerous associated risks, and for the risk to these women to be so flagrantly disregarded would be a dereliction of duty by Members of the House. There is also here a complete disregard for the role of medical professionals in what remains an ethically-fraught issue. If women were to be given abortion pills to take at home there is a lack of safeguards against scenarios such as that of forced abortion (which is illegal) or coercion. Not only this but there can be no guarantee that ‘home’ for a patient is indeed home in the sense that you or I would understand it (where are the safeguards for homeless women, trafficked women), and of course these women will then be left to dispose of the remains of their now-dead embryo/foetus which has been evacuated by the mifepristone/misoprostol.

    In short, if these proposals are made I would urge you to vote against them and to encourage your fellow MPs to do so also. To allow such amendments to pass would remove safeguards which we have in our law for a reason, it would endanger women’s health and it would undermine the entire premise of beneficence on which medical procedures must be judged. It would pave the way for further hasty erosion of good medical practice and legal safeguards. These proposed amendments are an attempt to highjack a Bill at a time of national crisis and should not be supported.

    I look forward to hearing from you.”
