"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

St. Caesarius against Abortion

Excerpt from a sermon of St. Caesarius

"No woman should take drugs for purposes of abortion, nor should she kill her children that have been conceived or are already born. If anyone does this, she should know that before Christ’s tribunal she will have to plead her case in the presence of those she has killed. Moreover, women should not take diabolical draughts with the purpose of not being able to conceive children. A woman who does this ought to realize that she will be guilty of as many murders as the number of children she might have borne. I would like to know whether a woman of nobility who takes deadly drugs to prevent conception wants her maids or tenants to do so. Just as every woman wants slaves born for her so that they may serve her, so she herself should nurse all the children she conceives, or entrust them to others for rearing. Otherwise, she may refuse to conceive children or, what is more serious, be willing to kill souls which might have been good Christians. Now, with what kind of a conscience does she desire slaves to be born of her servants, when she herself refuses to bear children who might become Christians?"

What can we say of the modern world and all those living by "self"? With women and men putting themselves ahead of the fruit which God desires and demands from their holy wedlock. It speaks to how we have become a culture of death by refusing those teachings of the Church which come from the Sacred Heart, and thus ultimately, a man is severed from grace, producing an inability to "see Truth clearly". Let us pray the Rosary daily with intent to have abortion abolished in all countries not just in America. And thus thru the Immaculate Heart can the culture of "Life" once gain be restored thru the Selfless Love of our Lord, Amen-
