    Please....TLIG family Pray !

    for this country we are being given a very grave "choice" that ubiquitous word that masks so much evil these days.(The referendum takes place,would you believe it -on 25th May -Padre Pio's Birthday)

    The usual evil cabal of politicians aided and abetted by a corrupt and biased media, George Soros funding, the UN etc etc...they want to end the 8th amendment -opening the door to abortion in Ireland and the abortion industry.
    1991-March 20, 1991:Alas For Those Who Shed Innocent Blood Of Unborn Infants!

    TLIG refers to this subject ( link below) -it has very grave consequences.

    Mother Theresa once said in front of the world leaders:" ...the fruit of abortion is nuclear war..."

    Praying for the end of all abortion - its a holocaust - a culture of death. Where is love for the unborn ?
    When they kill the child, they also kill the mother .... and now we have a generation who support same-sex as being love.

    today the use of child murdering initiations are multiplying, am I to remain silent?
    frightful sights are given to children by television programmes overtaking the purity within them; oh, enter into My Wounds and share My agonies, come and console Me! ic;

    I am going to do my best to isolate myself on Sunday at 3 pm to pray a Rosary requested by Gloria Polo and supported by Sr Emmanuelle in Medjugorje (see here for post about this) and this intention will be part of my prayers.

    karnala Yes where is the love for the unborn?...and what a terrible violation of a woman,of motherhood!
    The media never mentions or interviews women who have had abortions who regretted it and the terrible suffering afterwards they experience.
    In some way the evil world forces are targeting this country as one of the last outposts - if they get Ireland into abortion other catholic countries fall the same way.
    It has to end in the whole world soon, because if it does not the results will be Mother Theresas warning!

    andree many thanks your prayers are better than thousands of words of protest!

    I'll be praying on Sunday as well - there needs to be more outreach to these vulnerable mothers. I've been reading stories about "Save the Stork" buses which have ultra-sound pregnancy testing - and when mothers hear the heartbeat it has an enormous effect on them to change their mind about having an abortion.

    Many thanks karnala, ( I know you and andree are good prayers -please sneak a few in for me too!!!) yes much more to reach vulnerable Mothers, also...
    Teaching - some real teaching on love and sexuality respect for women and respect for men.
    Respect for the person first! Padre Pio recommended some very strict guidelines in this area.
    My generation went so badly wrong leaving the devastation we see today the collapse of the family, means the collapse of civilisation

    Will pray for Ireland again today (and you too Radhe), that voters there choose life over death. Robert Moynihan had a beautiful letter about this subject, which I'm copying below.
    Wednesday, May 23, 2018

    13 So Boaz took Ruth [Ruth was the daughter-in-law of Naomi; Ruth was a Moabitess, not an Israelite, but still after her husband died, accompanied her Israelite mother-in-law, Naomi, back to Israel out of loyalty to her], and she was his wife: and when he went in unto her, the Lord gave her conception, and she bare a son.

    14 And the women said unto Naomi, Blessed be the Lord, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel.

    15 And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter-in-law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him.

    16 And Naomi took the child, and laid it in her bosom, and became nurse unto it.

    17 And the women her neighbours gave it a name, saying, There is a son born to Naomi; and they called his name Obed: he is the father of Jesse, the father of David. Ruth 4, 13-17. This passage is the description of the marriage of Ruth the Moabitess to Boaz, and of the conception of Obed, who was the grandfather of King David, who was the ancestor of Jesus Christ

    Ireland's Freedom

    As I write this, I am in America, in my parents' home. My father has become 91, my mother, 84.

    Her name is Ruth. She told me in January that she always liked the name Ruth because Ruth in the Bible was "so loyal to Naomi."

    Those were the last words my mother spoke to me.

    Since three weeks, she can no longer speak.

    Yet she hears, and understands. She lifts her thumb up for "good, yes" and moves them sideways and a little down for "no, not that." She cannot move them further. They say she has ALS — Lou Gehrig's disease — so that her nerves are not responding to her mind. They say that she will never speak again.

    As I write this, my mother lies sleeping on the first floor. She can no longer climb the stairs.

    She can still stand, for a moment, a bit unsteadily. And each night she stands by the kitchen table, and my father leans back his white head, and opens his eyes wide, and she, carefully, intently, drops one eyedrop into each of his eyes so they do not become too dry.

    She has entered a narrow world, of self-silence, after a lifetime of speech.

    Speech, lectures -- she was a professor of history -- singing, calling us to supper, waking us in the morning with a shout, and sending us off to school.

    I watched her hair turn from bright black to half black, to half grey, to all grey.

    And as I look at her, in her silence, I see all of us.

    The Psalmist, King David -- Ruth's great-grandson -- sang:

    3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

    4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

    5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

    6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

    7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;

    8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.

    9 O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

    —Psalm 8

    And now I have this brief word to say: this Ruth, this silent Ruth, my mother, bore me... or rather, chose to bear me...

    Out of all space and time, this "me" that I am came to be at one moment, and this woman, who was 19 at the time, and a sophomore in college, chose to bear me.

    I am saying it was her choice.

    There were those who advised her not to. Including her own mother. But she said "no."

    And from her "no" came my life.

    So this evening, as I meditate on human life, and reflect on my own life, I see it all as a gift, as a hard-won gift -- hard-won by her -- for which I am grateful... for which I am grateful to her, for receiving me, though perhaps it was a rough gift, one she was not fully ready to receive. And yet she received me, and I am now here, with all that I am and have done, and have written, and have thought, and hoped, here, by her side, as she lies dying.

    What does it all mean?

    It means that life is a great mystery and a great gift.

    It means that mothers are to be honored, honored always, by each of us, who depend on them for our very being.

    Fathers should be honored, too, but mothers more.

    And it means that mothers should be treasured, and helped, always.

    And so I come around, as I always do, to Ireland... land of poets and scholars... beautiful, emerald isle... land of writers and saints...

    The eyes of the world may or may not be upon Ireland on Friday, when Ireland votes whether or not to lift the protection it has up until now granted in its Constitution to the unborn child. But I will turn my eyes toward the island.

    I think it should keep that protection.

    Of course I do.

    I say that, though not a woman, only the son of a woman, a son who wishes to honor and protect the woman who chose to bear me, and every such woman, not only in Ireland, but everywhere.

    Is this chauvinism? Sexism? Narcissism? No. It is the natural love of a child, of a son who is grateful to have been able to draw breath, to have been able to swim in freezing oceans, climb frozen mountains, gasp at the beauty of the dawn and dusk and high noon desert sun.

    Always there will be difficulty, and uncertainty, and sometimes great suffering.

    But the greatest work of a mother comes in gazing into her infant's eyes, soul to soul, burning her love into him.

    And this is the reason I hope the Irish remember their dearest, deepest things when they vote on Friday, and give to all of us a sign that the Irish are still free, and will honor motherhood and childhood above any other calculation or argument.

    In life there is hope, there is love, there is a future, even if difficult, and an old age, and a posterity.

    This is the true freedom of every people and race, and it is the true freedom of Ireland, to place life first, and do all that is necessary to protect and defend the most innocent, the little ones, and their mothers, for the honor of the nation, and of the eternal goodness that lies hidden in the background of the universe, and is glimpsed in an infant's eyes.

    I hope Pope Francis will take a moment today, before the vote, to say as much, to the people to whom I belong, in part, through the choice of my now-dying mother, Ruth.

    I believe Gods blessing will be wthdrawn from Ireland..
    As this evil government got what it wanted a man made license for the murder of unborn infants!
    Man made laws dont matter!Gods laws do and tragedy will surely befall this nation...
    The chastisement described in tlig must be a bit nearer this sorry day.

    Yes the results of the vote are devastating and tragic. What a lost generation we have become. You're probably right Radhe about the removal of God's blessing, but we must never forget that God is always with the faithful through His Son, Mother and Saints. As St Michael says in the message below from Oct 1994, the faithful still enjoy the favour of the Most High :

    Satan, today, is tempting even the elect of God; this is why trouble is coming to this generation who constructs its towers with innocent blood4 and founds its homelands on crime; this sacrifice5 alone pleases Satan .... put your trust in the Most High, child, and encourage people to ask for My intercession; I, Saint Michael, the archangel of God, will never weary of defending the Truth; stand your ground, 6 even though the Enemy's blows on you can be traumatic, I am with you; enjoy the favour of the Most High;

    On a related subject, I learned from a priest a while ago that the abnormal devastating winds that hit France and parts of Europe in Dec 1999 apparently out-of-the-blue, started forming the day after France passed a law permitting certain liberties with cloning. This morning as I checked the weather, I noticed a big swirling mass in the channel just under Ireland. If we look we can see an almost immediate reaction from earth from all these crimes against God's Laws. I wouldn't be surprised if the country feels the meteorological effects quickly of this vote.

    But trust that you'll stay safe in Mary's Mantle, Radhe!
