The Eucharist is being used more and more as a way to save unborn children and convert those who favor abortion.

As the United States prepares to mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, adoration chapels across the country are being set up next to abortion businesses. It’s a growing movement that Father Steve Imbarrato, chaplain of Holy Innocents Chapel in Albuquerque, N.M., says he hopes will increase.

“I want to promote Eucharistic adoration to fight abortion,” Father Imbarrato said. As the director for Project Life, he said everything he does to promote life involves the Eucharist. “The chapel is the spiritual center of all our pro-life work,” he stated.

Vaclav Havel and Kim Jong Il (3667)

Good and evil in the lives and deaths of two world leaders

12/27/2011 Comments (5)

Two very different leaders died last weekend, Vaclav Havel, 75, former president of both Czechoslovakia (1989-1992) and the Czech Republic (1993-2003) after it split from Slovakia, and Kim Jong Il, 69, dictator of North Korea since 1994.

The first helped defeat communism in 1989, ushering in freedom for a huge swath of Eurasia, from Berlin to the Bering Strait; the second prolonged it into the 21st century, with disastrous consequences, especially for the North Korean people.

A simple narrative, accurate in a minimalist sense, calls one man good and the other evil. Catholic theology calls us to deeper considerations.

Havel, who died Dec. 18, was buried with an exquisite Catholic Requiem...READ MORE

Pope Benedict's Christmas Message Calls for Prayers for Peace (2372)

The Holy Father says in urbi et orbi message: 'The Child whom we contemplate is our salvation! He has brought to the world a universal message of reconciliation and peace. Let us open our hearts to him; let us receive him into our lives.'

Pope Benedict XVI’s Christmas message on Dec. 25 called on believers to “turn to the child of Bethlehem, the son of the Virgin Mary” to ask for peace in “the land where he chose to come into the world.”

In his address delivered from the loggia of St. Peter’s Square, the Pope stressed the need for peace in the Middle East and other conflict areas, including North Africa and Southeast Asia.

Below, the full text of Pope Benedict’s Christmas message:


Dear brothers and sisters in Rome and throughout the world,

Christ is born for us! Glory to God in the highest and peace on earth to the men and women whom he loves. May all people hear an echo of the message of Bethlehem which the Catholic...READ MORE
