"To be actively pro-life is to contribute to the renewal of society through the promotion of the common good. It is impossible to further the common good without acknowledging and defending the right to life, upon which all the other inalienable rights of individuals are founded and from which they develop." ~ Pope John Paul II, The Gospel of Life, n.101
Everything is grace, everything is the direct effect of our Father's love.Everything is grace because everything is God's gift.Whatever be the character of life or its unexpected events -- to the heart that loves, all is well.

"I love the zeal Jean puts into her posts, especially when it comes to the prolife movement." Esther, A Catholic Mom in Hawaii.
"Jean of Catholic Fire...provides so much informative content. She posts about pro-life issues and events, what happened 'on this day', biographies of saints, prayer intentions, and lots more each day. No matter what she's posting about, I can always come away each day feeling uplifted...and that's saying a lot for me, as I'm someone who often tries to avoid thinking about some of the political and other issues that she posts about. It must be her strong faith and trust in God, as well as her love, shining through her posts, that inspire me." Margaret Mary Myers , Reflections, Catholic BVI Readers, VIP Homeschooler.
Barack Obama tries to convey that he is a man of character who will cross party lines to work with Republicans and is not the radical left "extremist" that some portray him to be. Of course, this is another one of his lies. The reality is that Obama has a history of voting “present” on most bills, rather than supporting or opposing them. In fact, he voted "present" 130 times as a state senator. A really decisive guy who would make a great President, right?
Let's project this behavior into the future....
"Mr. President, the terrorists have just bombed the Pentagon, what should we do?"
Seriously, the man is spineless! He can't talk on his own nor can he think for himself. He doesn't know how to respond in complete sentences when he's not been spoon-fed and groomed for a canned speech. He can't think on his feet. Please don't tell me what an "articulate" guy he is -- I have seen and heard him up close and personal -- and followed his campaign in IL. In the face of truth, he stammers and stutters and looks like the "village idiot" when he's anywhere near Alan Keyes. He struggles with his expressive language skills and is unable to present any kind of defense when he is confronted with the truth. And, in spite of what I have heard from mindless women (and I will be the first to admit that such creatures of my own sex do inhabit the earth and unfortunately are registered voters) say about his outward appearance and charisma, this "man" is seriously lacking in character and morals.
How in the heck did he ever get elected you ask? He was the "sweetheart" of the liberal media in IL and continues to be the "darling" of the U.S. liberal press who love him because he supports gay marriage, abortion, Planned Parenthood, and black genocide, destroying US weapons, and every other far left extremist position that exists. He thinks in a perverted, destructive manner -- for example, children are considered "a punishment" and babies born alive should be left to die without medical assistance.
The other day I was with a group of intelligent Catholic Christians and I was amazed at how little most of them really knew about Obama. Some of these people are leaders in our community and they are also registered voters. I am not singling out this group to criticize them but to emphasize the point that I believe many voters are still unaware of who Obama really is and that you and I have to keep blogging about him and sharing the truth with others. We also need to continue our prayers and sacrifices for this upcoming election. Our primary election here is coming up in less than two weeks and the pressing need we have at this time is for prayer -- that people will show up in the primaries and vote against Obama. NObama!
