Land of the Free….Birth Control

George Washington, June 29, 1788:

“No one can rejoice more than I do at every step the people of this great country take to preserve the Union, establish GOOD ORDER and government, and to render the nation HAPPY at home and respectable abroad.  No country upon earth ever had it more in its power to attain these BLESSINGS than United America.  Wondrously strange then, and much to be regretted indeed would it be, were we to NEGLECT the MEANS, and to DEPART from the road which PROVIDENCE has pointed us so plainly; I cannot believe it will ever come to pass.  The Great Governor of the Universe has led us too long and too far on the road to happiness and glory, to forsake us in the midst of it.  By FOLLY and IMPROPER CONDUCT, proceeding from a variety of causes, we may now and then get bewildered; but I hope and trust that there is a GOOD SENSE and VIRTUE enough left to recover the RIGHT PATH before we shall be ENTIRELY LOST”.

Since when does birth control trump our right to Freedom of Religion?

It is natural and beautiful for a woman to carry a child full term and give birth.  We women are blessed with having the ability to carry two souls in our one God-given body.  Why is pregnancy looked upon as a disease?

This country was founded on the premise that certain rights are God-given. I am thoroughly convinced that our forefathers would have never expected the rights of the innocent unborn to be stripped away; they would have fought passionately to protect those lives.

Why is this government so passionate about giving women free birth control?  Is there some type of crisis with woman obtaining these pills that I don’t know about?  Why birth control?  Why not give free cancer treatments or free blood pressure medicine?

Why?

On this week of our nation’s birthday, I have alot of questions.  I have many concerns of where we are headed as a nation, as a people.

We used to be ONE NATION UNDER GOD.  Now we aspire to be ONE NATION ABOVE GOD.

WHY?

Happy Birthday America.

I pray and “trust that there is good sense and virtue enough left to recover the right path before we shall be entirely lost”.

C’est Bon

Peace of Christ

Our Lady of America appeared to Sr. Mary Ephrem (deceased January 10, 2000) with this message: “It is the United States that is to lead the world to peace, the peace of Christ, the peace that He brought with Him from heaven…Dear children, unless the United States accepts and carries out faithfully the mandate given to it by heaven to lead the world to peace, there will come upon it and all nations a great havoc of war and incredible suffering.”

Saint Ephrem of Syria lived in the 4th century.  He was a theologian and is officially recognized as a Doctor of the Church.  Is the name a coincidence? Is there a tie between Sr. Mary Ephrem and Saint Ephrem of Syria? I think so…

The United States has aggressively been calling for military action against Syria.  This led Pope Francis to host an unprecedented event on Saturday.  The Pope led the faithful of all religions in a peace prayer vigil that lasted four hours.  One hundred thousand attended the prayer vigil in St. Peter’s square, praying, fasting, and adoring Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.

I was fortunately sick in bed and stayed glued to the TV in amazement watching this event.  I felt so connected with the assembly in St. Peter’s Square, and I just knew that these prayers would change the course of the world events.

Lo and behold, today something did happen that has changed up these events!  Secretary of State, John Kerry, made an off- the- cuff remark today regarding Syria handing over its chemical weapons and that leading to a halt of the military strike.  Russia jumped on this remark and immediately stated that this was a “firm” proposal by the US, one which Russia states was “welcomed” by Damascus.

President Obama’s rhetoric on the military strike has suddenly changed.  Obama has now stated that should Syria give up its chemical weapons, a military strike would “be on pause.”

The people have prayed and fasted.  God has heard His people.

It is so amazing the power of prayer and the power of the Almighty!!

Romans 3:22  God puts people right through their faith in Jesus Christ.

C’est Bon!
