Un-do a vasectomy for forgiveness? No loopholes into heaven . . .
deaconjohn1987
Depends on

Why not get a reversal?

The following comes from an Aug. 17 posting on the blogsite of the New Theological Movement.

Recently, I had a discussion about proper administration of the sacrament of Penance regarding a man who confesses having had a vasectomy. This is the question:  must the man who receives a vasectomy, in order to receive absolution validly seek a reversal of the vasectomy?

The simple answer – “Is a reversal required for absolution?” – “No, a reversal is not always required, but YES it is often required as following from true sorrow for the sin.” However, there is much to consider.

What is clearly not permissible is for a man to get a vasectomy and then fain sorrow thereafter so as to receive absolution – there are no “loopholes” into heaven. If a man is sorry for his sin, he tries to rectify the situation, and (if the procedure is safe and easy) this would mean a reversal of the vasectomy….

Fr. Petar Ljubicic

August 21, 2014

St, Pius X

Dear Family of Mary!

Here is Part Two of the talk by Fr. Petar Ljubicic given in Medjugorje earlier this year. He tells of some powerful stories about pilgrims in Medjugorje. Fr. Petar is convinced that Our Lady is acting in a powerful way in Medjugorje. Here is Part Two:

The great message here is that message of conversion. Our Lady says that if we desire to have peace in ourselves every day, then every day we have to convert. And to convert it means to change, to be better. To be at peace with God and with our brothers and sisters. To be at peace with yourself. That means to renounce the sin and to stop committing sin, and every day to do that. Conversion for us is always a feeling that God is here and that He desires to make us happy and desires to change me. That is why God, all the time, is calling us and searching for us. Truly conversion is God's gift that He gives to every person who is looking for it.

In the same way, conversion is a conviction that God can change us and that He can come to us. Conversion is a permanent search for God. To convert it means to understand that God exists and that He is the greatest value of your live. If someone has experienced God and understood that God is the most important for him, then that person is on the right pathway. That means that my life has meaning and my life is in accordance with the plan of God for me. God's plan for each one of us, for each one of you is that you get to know Him and Love Him, to abandon yourselves completely to Him and that you expect everything from Him, and in return He will give you joy satisfaction and peace. The essence of conversion is to admit that I am weak, sinful, and I make mistakes. That is why I repent sincerely, and I say to God, "Lord help me to become different." When we receive forgiveness from God we can live a new life.

How many people have experienced their conversion here?   Only God knows that number!! Many have said that they do not know what would have happened to them and their lives if they hadn't come to Medjugorje and experienced conversion and a new life here. It is important to allow God to change us. God can't wait to give us new life and to help us!

One young Italian shared with me the following: He was an addict, a great sinner, he thought he was the greatest sinner of the world. When His friends said that Mary was appearing here, it was his last hope. He desired to come here. Three times he wanted to commit suicide, but here in this place he understood that God wanted him to live. He came to Medjugorje and prayed before the statute of Our Lady, and he prayed, "Jesus, I implore you to help me. Our Lady, you are the Mother of Jesus, pray to your Son to help me. I am your disobedient, sinful child. But I know that your Son has helped many. He came to the world because of sinners and the sick. Help me, help me. Pray, so that your Son will have mercy on me."

He heard in his heart a voice that said "Go to confession". He found a priest and he went to Confession. He said he would never forget those moments of Confession because in the Confession he saw in the priest, Jesus Christ, who had love and a heart for him. He felt that Jesus was happy because he was becoming a new man. "I shared all my sins with the priest and I had the feeling that Jesus was forgiving me and saying to continue to mention the list of my sins. In that confession I really experienced that God is love and mercy. That is the Love that loves you and forgives you. The Love that saves you and sets you free. That is our God and our Faith. That young man said to me "I am happy that I am here and that God gave me a new life, and every year I come back here to give Him thanks." That is what Medjugorje is about, a place where man meets God and where he starts living a new life.

That is why we should be grateful to God. Many experience here not only their conversion but also their spiritual healing. Many have decided to abandon themselves completely to God. Above all it is important that we are always open to God's grace. That every day we read the Sacred Scripture. Our Lady in a special way said that in the families, and I believe most of you live in families, that every family has to say their family prayers and read the Sacred Scripture and go to Holy Mass. We see that families nowadays are in crisis. There is less and less love in families. It is quite rare nowadays to find a happy family. These moments are difficult for families, and crucial moments for families. Since families are wounded, unhappy and sick. We have to pray for families to be healed. We have to pray so that they overcome the crises they are in.

One lady, Anna Katerina, said that she was a woman who went regularly to the disco. For a few hours she said she was happy. Then after that she would be sad and unhappy. And Her brother was addicted to alcohol. Her mother heard about Medjugorje, and she asked them to come with her to this place. "We came here as a family. And here we experienced how many people were praying and going to Confession. We decided to stay for a few days and to prepare ourselves for that moment [Confession] with God and we did it. And I experienced a meeting with God. I found Jesus, and in Him I found happiness and joy and I discovered how much Jesus wanted to make me happy. Then I decided to consecrate my life to God. My whole family now praises the Lord. My brother is freed from addiction to alcohol."

These apparitions are helping each one of us to think about our own salvation and our own return to God. Do not be afraid to surrender yourselves to God for Him to guide you. If you know every moment of your life why you are here on earth and what your task is, you can be sure of your salvation. Our Lady says that Jesus loves us immensely and she loves us with the same love. That is why she says "I want all of you to come to heaven. Come with one gift, the gift of holiness." And the one who is on the way of holiness is a happy man. He doesn't have to be afraid of anything. To be holy doesn't mean anything else but to do the will of God always. As we say in the Our Father, "May your will be done.' Then you can be a happy person.

And God, when you pray to Him, gives you even more than you could wish for yourself or pray for yourself. The will of God is His eternal plan for each one of us and the entire humanity. The will of God is his eternal love for us. Each one of us is the will of God. He wanted us to be born and to live. That is why never rebuke to God that your life is difficult and full of crosses. But give thanks to God for everything and allow God to be glorified through your pain and suffering.

Nancy L. came to Medjugorje and she was sick. She came from America. She was in a wheel chair. Four difficult surgeries were performed on her but they did not good, in fact they made her worse. She prayed during an apparition to Ivan, and she prayed, "Our Lady, I know that you love me. And I know that you are appearing here. And I love you too. Help me to get to know the will of God. To say to God 'Lord let your will be done with my difficult life.'" And at the time of the apparition, that lady was healed. She even said that she prayed for one little boy who was 5 years old and had cancer. She was saying for 8 years I have been suffering and in pain, but Lord save this little boy. Heal this little boy. So when you pray for someone else and you desire that God will give to someone else what you desire for yourself, pray, pray, and you will be given all you ask from the Lord. But pray with faith and trust. God will hear your prayer and will hear your promises.

We pray that the Lord may hear all your prayers and intentions, and all your desires will be heard. We pray through the intercession of Our Lady, Queen of Peace, that God will give you all that you desire, all that you need and is for your good. May he save you all!

Conversion, prayer, Holy Mass, Confession, and the Word of God in Scripture...these are the elements of a happy life, a fulfilled life, a life with God. These are the gifts we receive in Medjugorje. Our Lady is with us to bring us into the fullness of life! Thank you, dear Blessed Mother.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

After 30 Years Late-Term Abortion Clinic Stops Surgical Abortions Killing Babies
Once again proving you don’t need an abortion ban to stop abortions, a pro-life law in Ohio has successfully stopped surgical abortions at a late-term abortion clinic that couldn’t comply with the health and safety measure to protect women and unborn children.

Today, the Lebanon Road Surgery Center announced an end to its court battle to continue surgical abortions. The abortion center in question is owned and operated by Martin Haskell, the late-term abortion practitioner who popularized the partial-birth abortion method that Congress eventually banned. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/20/late-term-abortion-clinic-closes-down-stops-killing-babies-after-30-years/

Planned Parenthood President Uses Ferguson Situation to Push Abortion
A national civil rights and violence debate is brewing because of the tenuous situation in Ferguson, Missouri. But the president of the Planned Parenthood abortion business isn’t letting an opportunity to push her pro-abortion agenda go to waste.

LifeNews blogger Ryan Bomberger has more on Cecile Richards’ latest antics: http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/20/planned-parenthood-president-uses-ferguson-situation-to-push-abortion/

“Bioethicist” Richard Dawkins: It’s “Immoral” Not to Abort Babies With Down Syndrome
Peter Singer move over. There’s a new “bioethicist” in town who has moral directives for the world: Richard Dawkins. In a Twitter rant today, Dawkins pushed the notion that it is “immoral” for parents of a baby with Down Syndrome to not kill the baby in an abortion.

Dawkins pushed the concept in a tweet criticizing Ireland’s ban on most abortions and in a conversation with someone on Twitter. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/20/bioethicist-richard-dawkins-its-immoral-not-to-abort-babies-with-down-syndrome/

Ice Bucket Challenge Donation Sponsor ALSA Funds Embryonic Stem Cell Research
The popularity of the #IceBucketChallenge continues on social media across the nation. This is the campaign to raise awareness about amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often called Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

The pro-life community has a soft spot in its heart for the disabled and terminally ill. After all, they are often targeted in abortion or euthanasia. Unfortunately, as LifeNews has documented, there is a chance your donation to The ALS Association could be used to support embryonic stem cell research. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/20/ice-bucket-challenge-donation-sponsor-als-funds-embryonic-stem-cell-research/


Clinic Worker: 16-Year-Old Forced to Have Abortion at Planned Parenthood
In 2010, Marianne Anderson worked at a Planned Parenthood facility in Indianapolis, Indiana. She started working there because the job was very close to her house, and she was hired to start up their conscious sedation program, which allowed clients to purchase mild to moderate sedatives to be given intravenously before an abortion.

Anderson, who is a mother of two and a grandmother of one, said when she started at the facility she was on the fence about abortion. This was because when she was on staff at Wishard Hospital in Indianapolis she had seen girls that had attempted abortions on themselves and ended up with hysterectomies, or boyfriends beating them because they were pregnant. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/20/clinic-worker-16-year-old-forced-to-have-abortion-at-planned-parenthood/

People Look at Me in Horror When They Learn My Daughter Was Conceived in Rape
One of the first questions I am typically asked after I share with someone that I am raising my child who was conceived when I was raped is, “Does she know yet?” — often accompanied by a look of horror.

I have learned that some regard conceiving a child conceived in rape as necessarily being shameful in itself and/or would lead to a life of fear because of the horrible crime that was committed, and that is sometimes then projected and placed on children like mine. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/20/people-look-at-me-in-horror-when-they-learn-my-daughter-was-conceived-in-rape/


Let’s Be Honest, The Only Goal of Abortion is a Dead Baby
I wrote a couple of weeks ago about one of the major problems I have with the bodily autonomy argument: that it’s totally at odds with people’s real-life experiences with abortion. In keeping with that theme, here’s another issue I have with the bodily autonomy argument. If the bodily autonomy argument were genuine, abortion supporters would have no discomfort whatsoever with Melissa Ohden.

Who’s Melissa Ohden? I’m so glad you asked. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/08/20/lets-be-honest-the-only-goal-of-abortion-is-a-dead-baby/

CHALDEAN ARCHEPARCH OF MOSUL NONA:  “Our sufferings are the prelude of those you, Europeans and Western Christians, will also suffer in the near future. I lost my diocese. The physical setting of my apostolate has been occupied by Islamic radicals who want us converted or dead. But my community is still alive.”

ICEJ: ISIS Issues Bloody Challenge as Recruitment Surges



The Islamic State (IS, formally ISIS) terror militia posted a video on Tuesday entitled "A Message To America," apparently showing the beheading of US journalist James Foley, who disappeared while covering the conflict in Syria two years ago. IS gunmen also appeared in the video threatening Steven Sotloff, another missing US journalist they claimed to be holding and declared that he would be executed next unless their demands, including a cessation of US military strikes on their positions in northern Iraq, were met. The authenticity of the video could not be immediately confirmed. Meanwhile, a leading Moslem cleric in Saudi Arabia declared IS to be an “enemy of Islam” on Tuesday, but the group continued to attract thousands of new recruits from all over the world, according to witnesses in Syria and Iraq.

Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al Sheikh, Saudi Arabia’s most senior Sunni cleric, issued a public statement that IS and Al Qaeda were the worst enemies of Islam, adding that Moslems were always their first victims.

Despite this statement and similar proclamations from Moslem authorities in Egypt and other countries, the ranks of IS continue to swell. Witnesses in Raqqa, the IS stronghold in Syria, told Reuters this week that as many as 6,300 new recruits have joined IS in the last month, with many coming from other Islamist rebel groups which have been battling the regime of President Bashar Assad for the last three years.

Meanwhile, Islamist terrorist groups in other countries, including one in the Philippines, have pledged their allegiance to IS in recent days.

USA TODAY: Parents of beheaded journalist drawing on faith

Account after account describes the Foleys as determined, faithful people. After their son disappeared in 2012, they launched the FreeJamesFoley.org website to serve as a clearinghouse for information that might lead to his release. In October 2013, they joined Today's Matt Lauer to wish their still-in-captive son a happy 40th birthday and to keep his cause alive. Even when interviewers noted that Foley's career took him to many volatile places, his father was quick to defend him.

"He's not reckless," John Foley said. "He's been doing this conflict reporting for almost eight years."

The Foleys said Wednesday that their son was the oldest of their five children and that his attraction to reporting from wartorn areas came from having brothers who served in the military.

They appear to be family held together by faith. In their appearance in front of their home on Wednesday, John and Diane Foley made frequent references to God. Their local paper, Foster's Daily Democrat, reported that their pastor, Rev. Paul Gousse of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, visited the family after word spread of Foley's death. Journalist Max Fisher of Vox described Foley as a person of quiet but strong faith.

Fisher said "Jim's faith was something we all agreed not to discuss publicly while he was held in Syria, but it was the wellspring of his generosity," Fox reported.

FROM THE MAILBAG
VIA Jim McCrea: What St. Thomas Aquinas said about Islam 

"On the other hand, those who founded sects committed to erroneous doctrines proceeded in a way that is opposite to this. The point is clear in the case of Mohammed. He seduced the people by promises of carnal pleasure to which the concupiscence of the flesh goads us. His teaching also contained precepts that were in conformity with his promises, and he gave free rein to carnal pleasure. In all this, as is not unexpected, he was obeyed by carnal men. As for proofs of the truth of his doctrine, he brought forward only such as could be grasped by the natural ability of anyone with a very modest wisdom. Indeed, the truths that he taught he mingled with many fables and with doctrines of the greatest falsity. He did not bring forth any signs produced in a supernatural way, which alone fittingly gives witness to divine inspiration; for a visible action that can be only divine reveals an invisibly inspired teacher of truth. On the contrary, Mohammed said that he was sent in the power of his arms - which are signs not lacking even to robbers and tyrants. What is more, no wise men, men trained in things divine and human, believed in him from the beginning. Those who believed in him were brutal men and desert wanderers, utterly ignorant of all divine teaching, through whose numbers Mohammed forced others to become his followers by the violence of his arms. Nor do divine pronouncements on the part of preceding prophets offer him any witness. On the contrary, he perverts almost all the testimonies of the Old and New Testaments by making them into fabrications of his own, as can be seen by anyone who examines his law. It was, therefore, a shrewd decision on his part to forbid his followers to read the Old and New Testaments, lest these books convict him of falsity. It is clear that anyone who places any faith in his words believe foolishly."

Northern Ireland considers allowing killing disabled unborn babies

Northern Ireland’s leading pro-life group, Precious Life, has condemned this week's announcement by Justice Minister David Ford that a consultation on changing the abortion law will be "ready by autumn." The government is considering allowing the killing of pre-born babies suspected of being disabled and those conceived through rape or incest.

YOU can follow the lead of Pope Francis on Sept 13
deaconjohn1987



Did you hear about the latest pro-life statement by Pope Francis?

Actually, it wasn't so much a statement as an ACTION: While in
South Korea last week, the Holy Father prayed at a cemetery where
aborted children are buried.

This happens to be EXACTLY what I'm calling on pro-lifers like
you to do next month on the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted
Children.

On Saturday, September 13, solemn memorial services will be held at
over 40 gravesites of abortion victims throughout the United
States, as well as at other memorial markers erected in their honor.

  YOU can follow the lead of Pope Francis by taking part
in this important day of pro-life prayer and witness.

Find the location of the nearest National Day of Remembrance prayer
service right here:

    http://abortionmemorials.com/sites.php

If you don't see a site in your area, please consider hosting one
yourself, with LOTS of help from my team. Chances are there's a
memorial to the unborn close by: check the list and get back to me.

You can can learn more about Pope Francis's visit to the gravesite
of aborted babies in South Korea -- including the SURPRISING way
some in the mainstream media described the event -- right here:

    http://prolifeaction.org/hotline/2014/popekorea-2/

Whether you're Catholic or Protestant, it's inspiring to
see a leader like Pope Francis making such a profound pro-life
gesture. Now let's follow his lead on September 13!

Yours for Life,

BREAKING NEWS: Haskell's Attorneys Will Not Appeal Closure Order

BREAKING NEWS: Haskell's Attorneys Will Not Appeal Closure Order, Surgical Abortions to End Friday in Sharonville

August 20, 2014

sharonvilleCincinnati, OH - Attorneys for Martin Haskell's Sharonville abortion facility have announced that they will not appeal a ruling issued last week by Judge Jerome Metz upholding the Ohio Department of Health's closure order. Haskell must cease surgical abortions his Sharonville office by Friday, August 22, 2014.

"This is such a huge victory for all who respect life and the rule of law," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, which worked with Greater Cincinnati Right to Life to expose Haskell's abortion abuses. "Haskell had the attitude that he was above the law and deserved to operate under a different standard as everyone else. Today, the law has prevailed."



The Real Racism: Black Genocide
deaconjohn1987

Contact: Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas, Operation Save America, 254-715-3134

OPINION, Aug. 20, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas of Operation Save America:

Since our inception, our nation struggled with some form of racism, slavery and segregation being the two most notable manifestations. Much blood, sweat, toil, and wealth were spent righting these moral wrongs. Thank God, Americans before us were willing to end these injustices.



While many Americans are acquainted with the racism that led to slavery and segregation, most seem ignorant of the racism that has led to genocide. This modern form of racism is far more detrimental than the "race card" politics of the day. On the one hand, America's sensitivity to race is painfully acute as witnessed in the Ferguson, MO conflict. On the other hand, we cannot seem to discern between the politically generated, media driven, race baiting "industry," and an actual racism that has led to the death of millions.

Fortunately, there are a few courageous leaders in the African American community, who discern the difference. These leaders have strong ties to their communities yet, the media ignores or marginalizes them. Their message does not fit the liberal establishment's racial template that views life through a Marxist, racial, social class warfare grid instead of a good vs. evil Biblical grid.

Professional race baiters exploit prejudices to fill their coffers and expand their political empires. In the name of ending racism, they purposely stoke the fires of racism. They cannot afford to work themselves out of lucrative positions.

Tragically, many of the so-called leaders in the civil rights movement have turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to the fatal form of racism promoted by the American holocaust. Blinded by money, favor, influence, and power, these "leaders" give aid and comfort to organizations like Planned Parenthood in the abortion industry that have done more harm to the black community than all previous forms of racism combined. In this case, the words of Jesus ring ever so true, they are indeed "the blind leading the blind (Matthew 15:14)."
