Quotes of sadness

January 22, 2011

“I’ve noticed that everyone that is for abortion has already been born.” ~ Ronald Reagan (1911-2004), on 9/22/1980

“It is a poverty that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.” ~ Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997)

“A Nation that kills its own children is a nation without hope.” ~ Venerable Pope John Paul II (1920-2005)

“Guilty? Yes. No matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; But oh, thrice guilty is he who drove her to the desperation which impelled her to the crime!” ~ Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906), The Revolution, 7/8/1869

Regardless of ‘political’ leanings, I know, if you take time in the silence of your heart, you will know with absolute certainty that every life, every creation, is precious and worthy of respect and awe.

Before I formed thee in the bowels of thy mother, I knew thee: and before thou camest forth out of the womb, I sanctified thee -(Jeremiah 1: 5, D-R)

In St. Jerome’s Latin it is more telling: “Priusquam te formarem in utero, novi te, et antequam exires de vulva, sanctificavi te”

Reconcile,

Papa
