Thousands Speak Up For The Unborn in Washington DC

 
Braving snow and freezing temperatures, thousands of pro-lifers gathered yesterday in Washington's The Mall, preparing to make their annual pilgrimage to the steps of the Supreme Court.  The march takes place on the day when abortion was made widely available across the US in 1973, following the infamous court decision ofRoe v Wade.
 
EWTN provided live coverage of the event throughout the day and, despite the ice, it was evident that numbers were good and people were in great spirits.

Dwelling on the Word of God: Speaking Up For Life (Wednesday 22nd January 2014)

 
Today's Gospel (Mark 3:1-6):
 
'Jesus went again into a synagogue, and there was a man there who had a withered hand. And they were watching him to see if he would cure him on the sabbath day, hoping for something to use against him. He said to the man with the withered hand, ‘Stand up out in the middle!’ Then he said to them, ‘Is it against the law on the sabbath day to do good, or to do evil; to save life, or to kill?’ But they said nothing. Then, grieved to find them so obstinate, he looked angrily round at them, and said to the man, ‘Stretch out your hand.

Evangelii Gaudium: Pope Francis on Youth

 
Pope Francis on the youth of our world:
 
'The rise and growth of associations and movements mostly made up of young people can be seen as the work of the Holy Spirit, who blazes new trails to meet their expectations and their search for a deep spirituality and a more real sense of belonging.
 
How beautiful it is to see that young people are “street preachers” (callejeros de la fe), joyfully bringing Jesus to every street, every town square and every corner of the earth!'
 

Parish of St Lucy, Cumbernauld Celebrates 40th Anniversary

 
The Catholic parish of St Lucy's, Cumbernauld shone brightly on Friday night as it celebrated its 40th anniversary.
Philip Tartaglia, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Glasgow, was the principal celebrant of the Mass.  He was joined by parish priest Father Joseph McAuley, former parish priests, and other dignatories and religious including local MSP Jamie Hepburn, local Councillor Elizabeth Irvine and Reverand David Nicholson of Kildrum Parish Church.  
 

Nightfever Glasgow brings hundreds to the Catholic Church

 
Nightfever Glasgow hit the heights on Saturday night with yet another beautiful night of adoration to the Blessed Sacrament.

The music was beautiful, the singing perfect, and the public participation was significant!

So many people came off the busy streets of Glasgow to join in and to honour Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. This included what seemed to me to be a record number of young children; all coming forward and showing reverence to our Lord in their own little way. It gave me goosebumps!

Learning the Catholic Faith: The Significance of Children in Marriage

 
A child is a creature and a gift of God, which comes to earth through the love of his parents.
 
True love does not desire a couple to be self contained.  Love opens up in the child.  A child that has been conceived and born is not something “made”, nor is he the sum of his paternal and maternal genes.  He is a completely new and unique creature of God, equipped with his own soul.  The child therefore does not belong to the parents and is not their property.
(From the Catholic Youth Catechism)

Nightfever Glasgow is back! This event will change your life!

 
Health Warning: this event will be detrimental to the health of those who are convinced the Catholic Church is either dead or in terminal decline in Scotland!
 
 
This Saturday sees the return of Nightfever to the city of Glasgow.
 
If you haven't yet experienced this uplifting event then you must take a little time out of your Saturday night to pop into St Aloysius Church on Rose Street (just off Sauchiehall Street ). (Click here for a map)
 
The Church will be plunged into darkness except for the runway of candles the length of the centre aisle leading all the way up to the altar where the main attraction, Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, waits for his children to approach.

Miss World: "I'm against Abortion" and "Sex is for Marriage"

 
In a frank interview to a local broadcaster, the 2013 Miss World Megan Lynn Young (pictured), revealed a number of truths about her own beliefs on some of the most important topics in our world today.
 
In an interview likely to send shockwaves throughout an increasingly secular western world, 23 year old Miss Young from the Philippines boldly expressed her firm belief that abortion is wrong and that sex is something sacred to the sacrament of marriage.
 
When asked about the subject of abortion, Miss Young stated, "Abortion is wrong.

Glasgow Shines Brightly as the Pro-Life Movement Takes Centre Stage

Our Lady's statue is carried through Glasgow
 
Last night the centre of Glasgow witnessed the joy and splendour of life, wrapped up in a beautiful Rosary, dignified procession, and passionate celebration of the Mass.
 
It was pro-life night and the people of Glasgow took to the streets to spread the Good News of life.  Around 300 people were present in George Square and it was evident that numbers were slightly up on last year which was encouraging. 
 
The Rosary, led by Father John Keenan of the University of Glasgow and St Patrick’s, Anderston, was a beautiful show of devotion and honour to Our Blessed Mother whose statue, held ably aloft by two young volunteers, looked lovingly over the crowd as it prayed.
