Ruddy Diabolical !!!

An appeal from John Smeaton of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children.

Dear SPUC Supporter,

I am writing to you about an extremely urgent matter – the latest attack on pro-life vigils.  Peaceful, pro-life vigils outside abortion centres and hospitals have saved thousands of babies and their mothers from abortion. But now these life-saving, prayerful vigils are under attack from the highest authority. 

On Sunday 26 November 2017, the Home Secretary, Amber Rudd MP, announced a review into “harassment and intimidation near abortion clinics”.

This review will:

  • Gather evidence from police forces, healthcare providers and local authorities.
  • Gather ‘detailed evidence and firm recommendations’ to allow the government ‘to take the right action to tackle this problem’.
  • Consider what further action the government can take, which could include bolstering or creating new police and civil powers.

Key points to note:

  • The review makes no reference to consulting with the pro-life groups which run the vigils.
  • The review is based on the assumption that harassment and intimidation are taking place. In fact, pro-life acts of witness in Britain are well-known for their peaceful, prayerful nature.
  • The basis of the review is not if anything more is needed in addition to existing legislation against harassment and intimidation, but what more needs to be done.
  • Vulnerable women, under pressure to abort, will suffer if pro-life vigils are shut down, by denying them vital information which may persuade them to keep their baby.

Ms Rudd’s assessment of what actually happens at pro-life vigils is misleading. The outcome of the review has been prejudiced. Please ask your MP to write to Amber Rudd objecting to the terms of this biased review.

To help you write your letter I am attaching:

This Home Office review is a wholly inappropriate response to small numbers of prayerful people who offer leaflets to women. These leaflets let women know where they can get help, which they cannot get anywhere else. Please make this your number one pro-life priority. Nothing is more urgent.

Please send any responses you get from your MP to SPUC.

With my very best wishes,

John Smeaton

CEO

Sinn Fein opposes the Easter Proclamation!

• Tell them you are totally opposed to Sinn Féin’s abortion policy, and their campaign to legalise abortion is not done in your name as an Irish man or woman

• Tell them you want ALL the children of the nation cherished equally – as stated in the 1916 Easter Proclamation

• Tell them you want Sinn Féin to stop deceiving their constituents by claiming the Party “isn’t in favour of abortion” while supporting abortion-on-demand

• Tell them you will vote in future elections only for candidates who uphold the right to life of unborn children

• Tell them you want both mothers and babies protected from abortion by being given life-affirming options in crisis pregnancies

43 years ago today………

……. Archbishop Lefebvre’s famous 1974 Declaration:

We hold fast, with all our heart and with all our soul, to Catholic Rome, Guardian of the Catholic Faith and of the traditions necessary to preserve this Faith, to Eternal Rome, Mistress of wisdom and truth.

We refuse, on the other hand, and have always refused to follow the Rome of neo-Modernist and neo-Protestant tendencies which were clearly evident in the Second Vatican Council and, after the Council, in all the reforms which issued from it.

All these reforms, indeed, have contributed and are still contributing to the destruction of the Church, to the ruin of the priesthood, to the abolition of the Sacrifice of the Mass and of the sacraments, to the disappearance of religious life, to a naturalist and Teilhardian teaching in universities, seminaries and catechectics; a teaching derived from Liberalism and Protestantism, many times condemned by the solemn Magisterium of the Church.

No authority, not even the highest in the hierarchy, can force us to abandon or diminish our Catholic Faith, so clearly expressed and professed by the Church’s Magisterium for nineteen centuries.

But though we,” says St. Paul, “or an angel from heaven preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema” (Gal. 1:8).

Is it not this that the Holy Father is repeating to us today?  And if we can discern a certain contradiction in his words and deeds, as well as in those of the dicasteries, well we choose what was always taught and we turn a deaf ear to the novelties destroying the Church.

It is impossible to modify profoundly the lex orandi without modifying the lex credendi. To the Novus Ordo Missae correspond a new catechism, a new priesthood, new seminaries, a charismatic Pentecostal Church—all things opposed to orthodoxy and the perennial teaching of the Church.

This Reformation, born of Liberalism and Modernism, is poisoned through and through; it derives from heresy and ends in heresy, even if all its acts are not formally heretical. It is therefore impossible for any conscientious and faithful Catholic to espouse this Reformation or to submit to it in any way whatsoever.

The only attitude of faithfulness to the Church and Catholic doctrine, in view of our salvation, is a categorical refusal to accept this Reformation.

That is why, without any spirit of rebellion, bitterness or resentment, we pursue our work of forming priests, with the timeless Magisterium as our guide. We are persuaded that we can render no greater service to the Holy Catholic Church, to the Sovereign Pontiff and to posterity.

That is why we hold fast to all that has been believed and practiced in the faith, morals, liturgy, teaching of the catechism, formation of the priest and institution of the Church, by the Church of all time; to all these things as codified in those books which saw day before the Modernist influence of the Council. This we shall do until such time that the true light of Tradition dissipates the darkness obscuring the sky of Eternal Rome.

By doing this, with the grace of God and the help of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and that of St. Joseph and St. Pius X, we are assured of remaining faithful to the Roman Catholic Church and to all the successors of Peter, and of being thefideles dispensatores mysteriorum Domini Nostri Jesu Christi in Spiritu Sancto. Amen.

A Million Russian Voices

A petition of more than one million signatories is being handed to President Putin today, calling for a complete and total ban on abortion in Russia. That’s the same as more than half-a-million people in Britain petitioning for a complete ban on abortion, and is the biggest petition to government in Russian history.

The signatures were collected by more than 5,000 activists from the Russian Pro-Life association ‘Za zhizn’ and others.

The Russian Pro-Life Association works hard every day to save unborn children: they advise pregnant women in difficulty, offer economic support and even provide homes for young mothers and destitute families. As well as providing direct support to help mothers keep their babies, they carry out constant cultural and informational activities including conferences, exhibitions, round-tables, and street leafleting.

Our Russian friends are asking for the prayers, moral support and publicity of the pro-life environment around the world on this auspicious day.
