Fourth Sunday of Easter May 11, 2014
Right to Life Words from a woman who had an abortion:

It was not like a doctors appointment where you walk in
and walk out and forget about it. With an abortion, you walk
in, you walk out and you remember it for the rest of your
life...and youre tormented for the rest of your life.

Pray for all women who have had an abortion, that they will be open
to Gods love and forgiveness.
Both Her Choice Womens Clinic and Rachels Vineyard offer
counseling for any woman or man who has struggled with the
emotional and spiritual pain of an abortion.

From the Pastors Desk
Theres a touching scene in the movie Rocky II where
Rocky and Adrian are together in the hospital room after Adrian
has come out of a coma and they get to see their newborn baby
for the first time. Rocky is beside himself in amazement as he
gazes upon his tiny son and he exclaims,
Oh, Adrian, youve done so good
I cant believe what a good job youve done!
Those are the very words that each of us should say to Mom!
I cant believe what a good job youve done!
Yes, for the first 9 months of our life, it was our Moms who
provided us with all of our nourishment and protection that
allowed us to be born and experience life in this world.
From that time on, our Moms showered us with a steady
stream of love and affection that never wavered.
God referred to this characteristic when He said through the
Prophet Hosea, Even should a Mother forget her child, I will
never forget you. indicating how unlikely it would be for a
Mother to ever stop loving her child.
Today is Mothers Day, a day where we pause to
acknowledge all of our Mothers, living and dead.
Theres no one on earth who will ever love us more than
our Mother shes the best friend well ever have.
Mothers demonstrate what it means to love by giving of
themselves to their children. Moms will go without things to
insure their kids have what they need. Moms would rather be
sick than to see their children hurting.
Moms are responsible for so much of what we know and
believe. They teach us how to live in this life and most
importantly they teach us our faith so that we can merit to live
in Eternal Life.
Lets give thanks to God, today and everyday, for the gift of
our Mother. And, lets pray for them and tell them how much
we appreciate them and love them.
The month of May is the perfect time to do this seeing as
how we dedicate this Month to Blessed Mother Mary,
Mother of Jesus and Mother of us all.
Its living under her powerful protection that well be able
to find our way to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
Thanks be to God for our Mothers, who gave us our start
in life and for our Blessed Mother, who guides us through this
life and into Eternal Life.
Happy Mothers Day!
Love, Father Deering
