Always Seek the TRUTH…

Posted by Anne Elizabeth on July 15, 2012

John 8: 31-32; Ps 85: 11-14

The TRUTH will always set us FREE!

Evening Prayer: Sunday, Week III: READING: Hebrews 13: 20-21 (emphasis added)

May the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep by the blood of the eternal covenant, Jesus our Lord, furnish you with all that is GOOD, that YOU MAY DO HIS WILL.

Through Jesus Christ may He carry out in you all that is pleasing to HIM.  To Christ be GLORY FOREVER!  Amen.

The Word of the Lord… Thanks be to God!

From HLI:

10 “sad” FACTS to set the record straight…
(be sure to click on their sources)

Fact #1: 

Melinda Gates’ favorite form of birth control is Depo Provera. But hormonal contraceptives, particularly injectable methods like Depo Provera, have been shown to increase the transmission rate of HIV/AIDS.

Fact #2:

At the UN’s 1994 International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, Western elites’ language of population control was officially changed to the language of “equality,” “sustainability” and “reproductive health.” The population control tactics, however, did not change.

Fact #3:

Melinda Gates’ partners, Marie Stopes International and International Planned Parenthood Foundation, were founded by leaders in the early eugenics and population control movements, and who were very open about the fact that they did not like the idea of poor people of color having children.

Fact #4:

Several types of hormonal contraceptives have been labeled Group-1 Carcinogens – the same category as cigarettes and asbestos – by the World Health Organization.

Fact #5:

There are documented health problems caused by the pill and other hormonal contraceptives.

Fact #6:

Many nations continue to use coercive means to stop women from having children, most notoriously in China, India and Uzbekistan.

(Special Note: All SOCIALIST Countries… what the US is rapidly becoming… so don’t think it can’t happen here!)

Fact #7:

The British government, co-sponsor of Melinda Gates’ birth control project, was recently found to be funding a forced sterilization campaign in India.

Fact #8:

Hormonal contraceptives are associated with a significantly increased risk of breast cancer. In a 2012 study published in the Journal of Cancer Research, researchers from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center looked specifically at DMPA (Depo Provera) and found that it doubled the risk of breast cancer.

Fact #9:

Melinda Gates claims she is against abortion, but her partner, Planned Parenthood, has publicly set a goal of increasing abortion services in Africa by 82% by 2015.

Fact #10:

The US Food and Drug Administration is responding to the growing body of scientific research that shows serious risks of deep vein blood clots associated with hormonal contraceptive use.

HLI asks for people to share this information, especially those with Blogs.  Will you be one of them to SHARE the information?

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Week III: (Alternative) CLOSING PRAYER: (emphasis added)

Father, let the light of Your TRUTH guide us to Your kingdom through a world filled with lights contrary to Your own.  Christian is the name and the gospel we glory in.

May Your LOVE make us what You have called us to be.  We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!

May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life.  Amen.

That In-Between Post: Importance of Reconciliation

Posted by Anne Elizabeth on July 11, 2009

This biblical exegeses looks at Wisdom 1: 13-15; 2: 23-24 and 2 Cor 5: 14-17, plus a few others.

——————————–

…God did not make death, and He does not delight in the death of the living.

14 For He created all things that they might exist, and the generative forces of the world are wholesome, and there is no destructive poison in them; and the dominion of Hades is not on earth. 15 For righteousness is immortal.

23 for God created man for incorruption, and made him in the image of His own eternity, 24 but through the devil’s envy death entered the world, and those who belong to his party experience it.

Brothers and Sisters:

14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we are convinced that One has died for all; therefore all have died.

(3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4…so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. ~Romans 6:3,4c)

15 And He died for all, that those who live might live no longer for themselves but for Him who for their sake died and was raised.

(Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. ~Jn 15:13)
(Why, one will hardly die for a righteous man–though perhaps for a good man one will dare even to die. ~Romans 5:7)

16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; even though we once regarded Christ from a human point of view…

(And leaving the crowd, they took Him… click here)

…we regard Him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come.

(I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. ~Gal 2:20)

Conclusion:

18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to Himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to Himself, not counting [our] trespasses against [us], and entrusting to us (Ordained Ministry) the message of reconciliation. 20 So we are ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal through us…

We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God!!!

CCC1469

More Catechism Reminders:

Reconciliation with God is thus the purpose and effect of this sacrament (Reconciliation).

And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.’ ~Mt 25:40
