Life Legal Defense Foundation
July 15, 2019
NAPA, Calif., WASHINGTON, July  15, 2019 /Christian Newswire/  — A  perfect storm is brewing in Planned Parenthood's lawsuit against  David Daleiden  and his fellow investigators at the Center for Medical  Progress (CMP). On  Wednesday July 17, federal District Court Judge  William Orrick will hear nine  motions brought by the pro-life  defendants, represented by Life Legal and other  legal groups, and one  motion brought by Planned Parenthood Federation of America  and the nine  Planned Parenthood affiliates.

Four years ago today, CMP   released the first of a series of videos showing Planned Parenthood  officials  negotiating the sale of baby body parts for profit. Shortly  after the release,  Planned Parenthood sued CMP and its board members  for millions in damages. The  abortion giant maintains it had to  increase security at many of its affiliates  because of a "dramatic  increase in the threats, harassment, and criminal  activities targeting  abortion providers," including nearly 850 incidents of  vandalism alone  in July and August of 2015 and a nine-fold increase in "security   incidents" following the release.

    July 15, 2019  Saint Bonaventure     Dear Family of Mary!

"...My children,  as a mother I am telling you: you cannot go on the way of faith and  follow my Son without your shepherds. Pray that they may have the  strength and the love to lead you. May your prayers always be alongside  them. Thank you.  (July 2, 2019)

The past few days in Medjugorje priests from  all over the world have gathered for the Annual Priest's Retreat. It is  reported that over 350 priests attended from 32 countries. After Holy  Mass on Saturday night- July 13 - the priest retreatants gathered around  the altar and gave a priestly blessing to all the pilgrims at the  church! It was a powerful moment!! (See the picture above)

Our  Lady frequently reminds us to pray for our priests. She knows how very  much we need them. They are our connection with heaven and with Jesus.  Without them, we could not receive the Sacraments, of which we have  great need. Here are two prayers that may help us to pray for our  priests daily. St. Pope John Paul II and St. Faustina Kowalska, our  great Polish saints, wrote these prayers. We can pray them with all our hearts!    St. Pope John Paul II's Prayer for Priests to Our Blessed Mother

Dear Family of Mary!


"...My  children, my Son, by His love and sacrifice, brought the light of faith  into the world and showed you the way of faith. Because, my children,  faith elevates pain and suffering. True faith makes prayer more  sensitive, and does acts of mercy-a conversation, a gift of alms. Those  of my children who have faith-true faith-are happy despite everything  because they live the beginning of heavenly happiness on earth.  Therefore, my children, apostles of my love, I am calling you to give an  example of true faith, to bring light where there is darkness, to live  my Son. " (July 2, 2019)

Our  Lady used the word "faith" seven times in this section of the July 2,  2019 message. Clearly, she wants us to understand that our faith, true  faith, in God our Creator is fundamental in these days. It is faith  that the world lacks. The darkness has grown over the past few years  and the light of faith has been dulled. It is up to us to rekindle that  light.
