Gosnell Convicted of 3 Counts of First Degree Murder
But Many Babies Continued to Suffer in Late -Term Abortions Nationwide Washington— “Kermit Gosnell was convicted of murder for serving the necks of just - born babies, but those babies would have died just as painfully if he had killed theme inside the womb, as most late-term abortions do.” commented National Right to Life President Carol Tobias. “The result is the same for the baby whether it meets its end in a shabby clinic like Gosnell’s of a brand new Planned Parenthood facility - a painful death.” Except in states that have enacted the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act - nine so far - most states allow abortion of at least some paint-capable babies (past 20 weeks). The legislation prevents abortion, except to save the life of the mother, of unborn children who are capable of feeling pain, which, in accordance with substantial current medical evidence, the legislation defines as occurring at 20 weeks after fertilization. Tobias called more states to enact the legislation, and for Congress to extend the same protective law nationwide.

“Work is part of God’s loving plan; we are called to cultivate and safeguard all of creation’s resources and this is how we participate in the act of creation.” (Pope Francis) “I read; I pray. I’m fine.”

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION The pilgrim experience of going by foot to Santiago de Compostella, the shrine of St. James, reaches its high point a month from now at the feast of the Apostle. By now, tens of thousands of pilgrims are already on the road. Typically, they cover twelve to twenty miles a day through rough territory. The difficult journey and the often primitive lodging facilities are made bearable by the joy of the pilgrims, their songs and prayers. When their journey is documented properly, they receive the scallop shell, a reminder not only of James the fisherman, but also his call to fish for human beings and to baptize the nations. In the Middle Ages, those who wore this badge on their hats were granted lodging and hospitality wherever they went. Next to the palm, the sign of a Jerusalem pilgrim, the scallop shell was most highly prized. In the Middle Ages, some people so enjoyed the pilgrim road, although it was filled with discomfort and danger, that they spent most of their lives on the road. Today, some people take up the route for exercise, but are drawn gradually into the spirituality of the journey. As you make your summer travels, always fold in an element of pilgrimage: a long walk through beautiful countryside, a visit to a church, a prayer of gratitude for your journey through life’s hills and valleys.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE El último sábado de junio o el primero de julio en un ayuntamiento de Valcidacos, España, se pone en escena el Miserere escrito por Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer (1836-1870). Esta obra relata como un músico llega de noche a la Abadía de Fetero pidiendo posada. Los hermanos del monasterio lo invitaron a pasar la noche. Allí él les contó su vida pecaminosa y su deseo de encontrar un Miserere (Salmo 51) digno de expiar sus pecados ante Dios. Le contaron del Miserere del Monte que cantaban durante la noche los monjes difuntos de un Monasterio que había sido destruido siglos atrás. El músico afanado por encontrar su Miserere, corrió a la montaña donde escuchó aquel lamentoso y bello canto. Al regresar a la Abadía intentó escribir la música de aquel Miserere, pero lo único que logro fue volverse loco. Aquel pobre hombre murió sin reconocer que cada quien debe entonar a su manera su propio y pobre Miserere mei (piedad de mi). Dios no nos perdona por la belleza o la fuerza de nuestra confesión, sino por su amor y su misericordia.
