Knights of Columbus in action 1984

Pro-life commentary: “Can a woman forget the child of her womb?”

Two women bore children at the same time. One woman's child died and she laid claim to the other woman's baby. This case of disputed motherhood was brought before Solomon, the wisest of judges. Since he had no means of establishing who the rightful mother was, he offered to cut the baby in half. He depended upon the love of the real [...]

Remember what we celebrate

Each Christmas we get caught up in the whirl of preparation and parties, and often tend to forget what the occasion is. Christmas, above all else, is a birthday; and while we all know it is a special birthday, we easily forget that this particular pregnancy could not have been joyful always for the mother and the foster father. Consider some facts. [...]

God so loved the world

After a long and learned lecture on love, a parishioner said to the priest, "Father, don't lecture us on love - just love us!"

But it is interesting to find that - in quite recent years - the psychologists [...]

Pluralistic prime ministers and political robots

In the Lunches with Leaders talk on women's issues during the last electoral campaign, Brian Mulroney said that he personally did not believe in abortion but that we live in a pluralistic society and he did not wish to impose his views on anyone else.  Unless and until we have proof to the contrary, we must regard Mr. Mulroney as an honorable [...]

Reagan re-election and the US pro-life movement

It is likely that the 1984 Presidential Election will affect the pro-life movement in the United States for decades to come, for one of the President's most important responsibilities is that of nominating federal judges, including Supreme Court Judges.  Barring impeachment, once the nominations have been confirmed by the Senate, these men and women have life-long tenure, and their influence usually outlasts [...]
