I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a direct war, a direct killing—direct murder by the mother herself. And we read in the Scripture, for God says very clearly: "Even if a mother could forget her child, I will not forget you: I have carved you in the palm of my hand."
— Mother Theresa (11 Dec 1979)

published 2 April 2018 by Jeff Ostrowski

Someone in the pews on Holy Thursday took this video using a pocket recorder:


“If the Crotalus is used, it is rattled whenever, on other days, the bell would be rung.”

—Fr. Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)


Did you hear it? It occurs toward the end of the video above.
