Scenes that take place in confessionals always kind of make me laugh because they are 0% what going to confession is actually like.
Peace will only begin to be possible when we try to do justice to the side with which we do not feel sympathy, and earnestly try to call up in our own imagination the sorrows we have not suffered and the angers we do not feel.
The Sword of Surprise
Sunder me from my bones, O sword of God
Till they stand stark and strange as do the trees;
That I whose heart goes up with the soaring woods
May marvel as much at these.
Sunder me from my blood that in the dark
I hear that red ancestral river run
Like branching buried floods that find the sea
But never see the sun.
Give me miraculous eyes to see my eyes
Those rolling mirrors made alive in me
Terrible crystals more incredible
Than all the things they see
Sunder me from my soul, that I may see
The sins like streaming wounds, the life’s brave beat
Till I shall save myself as I would save
A stranger in the street.
— G.K. Chesterton
This 11-Year-Old Just Helped a Governor Sign a Bill to Stop Aborting Babies With Down Syndrome
We have a young heroine for life in our state.
Her name is Chloe Kondrich, and she has Down syndrome. The 11-year-old and her family have made it their mission to educate people about the precious value of individuals with Down syndrome. The family received our Pennsylvania Pro-Life Leadership Award in 2011.
On Friday, July 18, Chloe stood with Gov. Tom Corbett as he signed “Chloe’s Law,” a measure that ensures Pennsylvania moms have access to accurate information and support when their preborn baby is diagnosed with Down syndrome.
Sadly, preborn babies who are diagnosed with Down syndrome often become victims of abortion. One study suggests that 90 percent are aborted. (LifeNews.com)

I just finished ‘Gone Girl’ and I don’t know what to do or think
Behold, the face of evil: I’m sure you’ve seen this young woman’s photos plastered all over Facebook. Her name is Kendall Jones. She’s a cheerleader, hunter, and, according to the internet, a vile scumbag who deserves to die a slow and painful death…
Es práctica común de gobiernos socialistas y de izquierda que al no poder aportar algo realmente relevante a la sociedad que deberían servir se centran en cuestiones de cariz más bien ideológico que de bien común. Como sus “proyectos políticos” suelen ser un fracaso al menos intentan disfrazarlos o desviar la atención para que la misma sociedad no lo perciba tanto…
