"Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)"

Sometimes we get very timely news from friends in emails. Sometimes it is sad news, but not always. Occasionally it is something that should make us sit back and think. This is one of those.

Please Pray For This Man

I got this in an email this morning.... but you will need to go to the website in order to read the rest of the page. He does need our prayers.

This is a prayer request for
a man in need of prayer.
Please, take a moment and pray for this man. He is in a situation that few people find themselves. He is criticized at every turn, and few people have thanked him for the good things he has done.

Few people know the extent of his situation. We need to pray that God gives him the guidance he needs to do his job effectively. I have attached a photo of this man. Look at it. Most of you will recognize him. Please pray for him.

Feel free to pass this on to anyone else who will pray for this man. He hasn't asked me to send this request, but I am sure that he will appreciate all your prayers. If you were facing what he is facing, you'd want people praying for you!

Another fine example of 'help' for the victims...

Thank you to Nancy Valko, RN for sending the story and url.........

Arkansas Clinic Offers Free Abortions
Sep 28 6:35 AM US/Eastern


A doctor has offered to perform free abortions on hurricane evacuees, saying it may be too dangerous for them to wait until they return home.

Despite protests from abortion opponents, Little Rock Family Planning clinic director Dr. Jerry Edwards said he has already performed six free abortions. The clinic usually charges between $525 and $600 for a first-trimester abortion.

"If we didn't provide it now, they would get it later _ a late-term abortion that would give greater risk to the mother's health," Edwards told KTHV-TV in Little Rock.

Edwards, who runs the only abortion clinic in central Arkansas, was unavailable for further comment Tuesday, a clinic employee told The Associated Press.

Rose Mimms, executive director of Arkansas Right to Life, said Edwards is risking further traumatizing women who have already lost their material belongings. "This just adds to the devastation these women already have in their lives," she said.

But Marvin Schwartz, spokesman for Arkansas-Oklahoma Planned Parenthood, said Edwards is providing women with a needed service.

"The timing of the abortion procedure is, of course, extremely critical. The earlier in the pregnancy, the less critical it is," he said.

Two good posts at Angry Twins

My sister would catch the end of the story on this one and her niece (my oldest) did the same thing to her one day (diarrhea...), but the story is real.

In another post at Angry Twins, Arthur has put a link to listen to a talk by Fr Larry Richards, who has some really good tapes out there on "How To Get More Out of Confession " and Marriage.
Fr Larry IS, just as Arthur says, an awesome speaker!

There also is a site with sermons by him that begin with Pentecost Sunday, May 19, 2002 to June of this year, and another with just a few from this year.

I say Puh TAY toes, you say Puh TAH toes....

I have noticed more and more people pronouncing words differently these days than when I learned them, but especially one word and its variations.... hope that the links to the sound work, which need Windows Media...when checking, it looks like the written way of saying them is not turning out at all, but the two ways are EYE de ology or ID eology (long I or short I) so I removed them, and you can find the way they are written out at the American Heritage Dictionary on

Ideology PRONUNCIATION: (note, the second is the way I learned it)
Ideograph PRONUNCIATION: (note, this is the way I pronounce it, short i as in 'ID'

Ideological PRONUNCIATION: (again, the way I learned it is second choice)

Ideography PRONUNCIATION: (THIS time, the short I is first choice...)

etc etc etc... interesting

Former PLO member speaks out

For many years, I have spoken about how the major media can be used (and IS used) to propagandize people, and how often it happened via the radio and newspapers during the beginnings and throughout the Nazi years of Germany.

I have often said also that this is not JUST back then, but is happening today via TV, both news and 'docudramas', and regular tv shows, as well as newspapers, internet, etc. I have cautioned people to NEVER just take the media's word, especially most of the major news. I have cautioned people to THINK, not just assume that what they are hearing is correct. The topics can be abortion, euthanasia, politics, and EVEN whose to blame for Hurricanes, war.... anything 'politically correct'.

A GOOD example of attempted propaganda was the recent NARAL ad on TV which was taken off the air after many angry people pointed out the fact that Judge Roberts had NOTHING to do with violence at abortion clinics. But as a result of it being on tv, even with proof to the contrary, some STILL believe he did.

This is especially true of the use of 'polls' today. Many follow the polls in deciding who they will vote for, what their opinions are on topics such as Terri Schiavo's death...but never research and find Truth on those topics for themselves.

In all of my reading of Nazi Germany and the beginnings of Israel as a nation May, 1948, I have also seen that much of what we hear about 'Palestinians' is also propaganda, beginning with the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, who was MORE than just an admirer of Hitler. He was an ally, a fellow enemy of Jewish people regardless of where they live. He had been an enemy long before Hitler, in fact. His influence did not end with his death, as a distant relative of his had become a devoted student, admirer, follower...and finally, leader of the stated on First Things in the article by David G Dalin, Hitler’s Mufti.

After the defeat of the Axis powers, Hajj Amin al-Husseini escaped indictment as a war criminal at Nuremberg by fleeing to Egypt, where he received political asylum and where, shortly after his arrival, he met the young Yasser Arafat, a teenager then living in Cairo. (Arafat and al-Husseini were, in fact, distantly related: Arafat’s mother was the daughter of al-Husseini’s first cousin.) Arafat soon became a devoted protégé of the grand Mufti, who brought a former Nazi commando to Egypt to teach Arafat and others how to fight. Arafat first shed Jewish blood during terrorist raids against Israel in 1947.

The Mufti’s mission of waging ongoing war against the Jews was continued by Arafat during the 1960s and early 1970s. In 1969, for example, the PLO recruited two former Nazi instructors, Erich Altern, a leader of the Gestapo’s Jewish affairs section, and Willy Berner, an S.S. officer in the Matthausen extermination camp. Another former Nazi, Johann Schuller, was found supplying arms to the Fatah. The Belgian Jean Tireault, secretary of the neo-Nazi La Nation Européenne, also went on the Fatah payroll. Still another Belgian, the neo-Nazi Karl van der Put, recruited the PLO. So, too, the German neo-Nazi Otto Albrecht was arrested in West Germany with PLO identity papers, after the PLO had given him $1.2 million to buy weapons.

Arafat always revered al-Husseini, who died in 1974, as his beloved hero and mentor. In a major address in April 1985, Arafat said he took “immense pride” in being the Mufti’s student and emphasized that the PLO “is continuing the path” he set. Close to thirty years after al-Husseini’s death, Arafat referred in an August 2002 interview to “our hero al-Husseini” as a “symbol of withstanding world pressure, having remained an Arab leader in spite of demands to have him replaced because of his Nazi ties.”

I have been reading this site off and on since 'finding it' via Janjan's blog. I had not taken the time to listen to any of the media segments he has on his site until today, again at the suggestion of Janjan. Anyone who buys the thought that the Palestinians want peace EVER with Israel, spend some time watching these, after you watch this one:


Then perhaps you can continue with these interviews. Joseph Farah is a Palestinian Christian whose family left the Middle East. Dennis Prager is Jewish. Walid Shoebat is now also a Palestinian Christian, whose story is told in Why I Left Jihad his book which was released on Mar. 15, 2005.

For the sins of the father.....

So many people have forgotten a tiny aspect of their belief in 'a woman's right to choose'. The Baby.

I was at work and on break when someone asked me what the book I was reading was about. It was obvious from the title that I had an interest in the Catholic Church, though the book was written by Rabbi David G Dalin (The Myth of Hitler's Pope). She began by saying "I am not Catholic, but I could never accept some of the things that Church teaches!" I smiled and said "That is why we have so many Protestant denominations". (not to mention non-denoms, etc)

It gave her permission, I guess, to continue. Her next comment was "I think that in cases of rape, for instance, a woman should have the right to choose. She should not have to go through that"....

My answer? "So the baby gets the death penalty for the sins of the father?"

The rest of our conversation was about five more minutes, but I did not have to say much more. The seed has been planted. I added only that I am aware of three adoptees who were conceived by rape (date rape or stranger rape) and none of the three are saddened that they did not get the death penalty for the crime that their fathers (not them) had committed, and that the two women I knew of who had chosen life for their children after rape were also VERY glad to have been able to live without the guilt of later realizing that though they had been violated, they had been party to taking an innocent life.........

The 'hard cases'... rape, incest, and health of the mother .... are ways to not really LOOK at what we are saying.

When would we EVER otherwise kill an innocent in order to make life easier for anyone else, other than when we have depersonalized the one we are going to get rid of? For rape and incest, instead of helping, counseling and assisting the woman to term and a final decision about what to do, we call the very tiny and innocent one a 'blob of tissue', 'products of conception'.. 'unwanted'... 'tragic results of a horrific act' (the act IS horrific, there is no argument there)... and we 'mercifully' support her right to 'choose' to get rid of that blob, that unwelcome result of a horrendous act by another.

In the case of rape, sometimes the guilty person is never caught nor punished. In cases of date rape, it is most often not reported, not believed....

In the case of incest, the abortion providers RARELY report an underage girl's pregnancy to the police for prosecution, and the family is getting the abortion to prevent anyone from knowing the truth. In that case, are they truly protecting the underage child from having to go through to term an 'unwanted pregnancy'? Or are they protecting a criminal?

And the 'health of the mother' is such a catch-all, that anything at all can fit under that heading.

So we end up years later with a woman who hurts when she realizes who lost their life for someone else's sin. Post-abortion syndrome is real, and affects many women for the rest of their lives.

I am the mother of two adopted and one birth 'children', now adults. My daughters are forever grateful that their mothers did NOT use the 'choice' that would have prevented them from living. I am forever grateful for the same!! I have four precious grandchildren and my own children because they chose life. And today, a birth half sister became the godmother of my youngest grandchild! For she, also, was gifted with life and grew up in another home, with parents that have been in touch with us since her placement with them!

Long ago, two separate times, two different young pro-abortion women told me that they had a right to their bodies, and that they would rather have their 'kid dead than never know where it was' through adoption! I was stunned the first time I was told this. I just looked at her and said.. Did you hear what you just said???

The second time, I had a different answer. I quietly looked at the young woman and said "My oldest just hugged her birth mother after 26 years, and told her thank you for letting me live! That child that was killed by abortion can never come back to thank you, hold you, hug you, comfort you and tell you that you made a good and wise decision."

Lee Ezell also had that opportunity when her 'baby', Julie Makimaa (the ONLY CHILD LEE EVER HAD BIOLOGICALLY) , came back to her with her husband and two children. Her daughter's husband also had the chance to thank her for allowing him to be able to marry the child long ago rape.

"I was determined that Julie would not find out about her conception through rape. But it was so important to my husband that Julie understood this that he privately chatted on the phone with Julie's husband Bob, telling him the circumstances surrounding her conception. Bob's reaction was simply: ' think that is what happened more than 20 years ago just to give me Julie!'

"The first time we got a glimpse at each other, I know we were both so nervous. Would she like me? What would she look like? And typically, adoptees are risking being rejected again. But as she walked through the door, a mirrored image of myself, we were in awe. The first words she said, as she passed me a baby, was 'now go to your grandma'. Her husband Bob Makimaa waited his turn and then stretched out his long arm to say 'I want to shake your hand, Lee: thank you for not aborting Julie. I can't imagine what my life would be like without Julie and children.'

For what other sin do we execute an innocent victim in place of the one who committed the sin.. the crime? None.

The forgotten one, the tiny one, the one that could bring much joy to many lives forever
.... is not the one who deserves to die. And the mother is not the one who should suffer TWO traumas... one done to her, and one done by her to another....all in the name of 'right to choose'.

"Right is still right if nobody is right,
and wrong is still wrong if everybody is wrong,"
Archbishop Fulton J Sheen author of The Life of Christ


"I will not cooperate with immoral, unjust laws corruptly and cowardly imposed on the American people for the sake of pretending to solve social and economic problems by murdering innocent children...Indeed, I will not obey unjust laws nor consent to cooperate with the murder of the sacred lives of God's precious children. I could no more adhere to the unjust laws of this land, or in any way give credence to evil enshrined in law, than deny God Himself."
~~~Joan Andrews Bell

May they rest in Peace, Oh, Lord!

Just before my week-long internet server problems, I had found another seminarian's blog and bookmarked it, as well as his older one. I had not had time to get to many of my bookmarked blogs since the server problem ended late Thurs evening. Late last night, I got a request for prayers for the families of two seminarians who had died in a car accident, and the other two seminarians in the car who had sustained relatively minor injuries.

Robert Spaulding (scroll down) and Mark Rowlands are the other seminarians in the car, and will need continued prayers for the present and the future, long-term, as the effects of the accident are felt, and as they await the outcome of the charges that have been made.

Sadly, two much needed seminarians are no longer with us, and two more now have uncertain futures.

Matty's final blog entry is still at his site, and is the one I had read that day before my server problems. Matty died the next day.

Matty Molnar was just 28, and Jared Cheek was 23 years old, soon to be 24. May they rest in peace, and may all those who feel their loss be comforted by Him. And may the Great Physician and Healer be with the two surviving seminarians, and all four men's families.

Their Diocesan newspaper has two stories about them online:

Vatican envoy was only foreign official to visit Katrina victims

Vatican envoy was only foreign official to visit Katrina victims
Vatican, Sep. 19 (

Vatican, Sep. 19 ( - The Holy See seems to be "the only state in the world" outside the US to send a government representative to visit the victims of hurricane Katrina. That was the observation of Archbishop Josef Cordes, who traveled to Louisiana and Mississippi last week as the personal representative of Pope Benedicti XVI.

Speaking on Vatican Radio, the archbishop-- who is president of the Pontifical Council Cor Unum, the Pope's personal charity-- said that he had been warmly greeted by both Church and government officials in the US. He pointed out that Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington, DC, accompanied him throughout his visit.

"During my stay, I saw terrible scenes, but also gestures of great humanity," Archbishop Cordes reported. He said that local relief officials told him that it would take months, and perhaps years, to reconstruct the communities destroyed by the storm.

The archbishop said that the storm showed the vulnerability of the US, despite the country's material wealth. He admitted that he was worried "that this superpower would isolate itself, and remain isolated in facing this disaster." In the midst of the tragedy that struck the people of Louisiana and Mississippi, he said, "we cannot abandon the US." He also said that he hoped the impact of international help could lead Americans to see that "the world is bigger than the US."
