"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.
We need your help to call the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) board members and tell them that boys should not be pawns in adult sexual controversies. Scouts should be allowed to participate in healthy, wholesome activities without fear of predation or moral confusion.
On Monday, the BSA Board of Directors will hold an annual meeting to discuss whether to change the policy and allow homosexual Scouts and Scoutmasters. “People like Jerry Sandusky should not be permitted to be Scoutmasters. To allow homosexual Scoutmasters or homosexual Scouts will put young boys at risk. The mere thought is ridiculous,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel.
It is imperative that you call the board members and kindly urge them to stand true to the Scout oath being “physically strong” against social pressure, “mentally awake” against political correctness, and “morally straight” with the best interest of boys in mind.
The Boy Scouts are an icon throughout America’s culture of honesty, purity, and helpfulness. Their stand for traditional values and moral purity has influenced more than 110 million members of the Boy Scouts of America. Despite challenges on every level, including the U.S. Supreme Court, BSA has held true to its traditional values on morality.
Please call the members of the BSA Board of Directors and kindly ask them to to stand strong for traditional American values while mentoring young men.
