And we need, more importantly, we need to pray for courageous bishops. Regardless of whether they are these men or their successors, we need to pray for courageous shepherds. Particularly when being authentically Catholic ain't cool.
I think God can handle this all by Himself. We’ll see how God handles it. My personal opinion is that He is going to curse that school. Harsh - maybe, but God chastises His children. Sad for those there that did not want to be a part of this. So, we shall see. I wouldn’t want to be that school for all the tea in China.
God is not mocked.
Fr. John Jenkins, President of Notre Dame University, sits on the board of directors of Millennium Promise, an organization dedicated to fighting poverty in Africa that promotes contraceptives and abortion, it has been revealed.
Fr. Jenkins' involvement on the board of the Millennium Promise was first reported by the Drew Mariani Show and PewSitter.com.
Patrick Reilly, president of the Cardinal Newman Society, a Catholic education watchdog organization, responded to the news of Fr. Jenkins' involvement in Millennium Promise, saying in an interview with LSN, "One has to wonder what Fr. Jenkins' opinion is of the Church's teaching on contraception."
Millennium Promise's mission is to enact the eight so-called Millennium Development Goals by 2015. However, the Millennium Development Goals have been widely promoted by pro-contraception and pro-abortion organizations, such as Millennium Promise, as including the goal of increasing access to contraception and abortion globally.
A Millennium Villages handbook explains that "family planning and contraception services are critical to allow women to choose family size and birth spacing, to combat sexually transmitted infections, including HIV infection, and contribute to the reduction of maternal morbidity and mortality."
It continues to explain that, "Services include: (1) Counseling; (2) Male and female condoms; (3) Pharmacologic contraceptives including oral, transdermal, intramuscular, and implanted methods; and (4) IUDs."
The handbook continues with an encouragement for "safe" abortion: "In countries where abortion is legal, safe abortion services in controlled settings by skilled practitioners should be established."

Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us.

Perhaps a newborn Christ wouldn’t have fared so well if he’d been born into Obama’s utopian dream, where no woman need be punished with an unexpected or unplanned pregnancy.
Although, facetiously, one could compare King Herod’s and Obama’s positions on “live birth infanticide.”
