Terri Schiavo: Our forgotten sister

Nine years ago, on March 31, 2005, after a decade and a half of increasing discomfiture to the agendas of her husband and eventually of the “progressive” American mediasphere, Theresa Marie Schindler Schiavo, age 41, was put to death by dehydration.

Please pray a Rosary today in reparation for this atrocity.  Let us ask Our Blessed Mother to intercede for the protection of all whose existence falls short of convenience-based “quality of life” standards, and for the conversion of the stewards of the culture of death.

A memorial Mass will be offered Monday evening, March 31, 2014, at 5:00 p.m. by Archbishop Charles Chaput at the Chapel of the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, 18th Street and Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia.

This is what it’s come to

As we sit comfortably in our warm homes and offices on this Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, perhaps we might consider offering one or more decades of the Rosary in reparation for the careless desecration of the remains of some of our most vulnerable fellow beings, whose inconvenient existences have been snuffed out in the exercise of what some professed Catholics would call a “sacred” right.

May God have mercy on our souls.
