“No, no!” You say, “I just want to become a better person and do more good for my fellow man!”

Huh? Well, have you tried your Church. At our Parish, we have the St. Vincent de Paul society. Their members gather clothing, appliances and food to give to the poor members of the Parish. In addition, the provide services, such as daycare, for mom’s who have to work and they look for employers for people that need jobs. And they do all that, on a voluntary basis.

The Knights of Columbus, Knights of Peter Claver and many other societies are out there in the Catholic world which provide services to the needy. I’ve never been to a Catholic Parish which did not at least have connections to several of these. Just ask in your parish office.

“Yes, but what I really want is to feel closer to God!”

Ha! You’ve come to the right place! The best way to feel close to God, is to partake of the Eucharist. And the Catholic Church offers the Eucharist daily. Check your parish office for times. Or you can check this website for Mass times in your area. They even have an app for your phone.

There is very little difference between the words “prayer” and “worship”. But they do not mean exactly the same thing.
The basic difference in this day and age, is that worship is only directed to God but prayer can be directed to either God or the Saints.

Fr. Pavone on latest video: Were these babies born alive?

NEW YORK –Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement today regarding the newest video made public by the Center for Medical Progress.

“The latest video, released today, increases the evidence that Planned Parenthood is violating federal law that prohibits selling body parts or altering the abortion procedure to obtain such parts. Moreover, the video talks about obtaining full fetal cadavers. It raises the disturbing question as to whether some of these babies are born alive and then killed. Kermit Gosnell is serving life sentences for doing that. It may be time for some Planned Parenthood doctors to join him in prison.

“The discussion of full cadavers is no surprise to me; in fact, I have obtained full cadavers of aborted babies, in order to bury them, from pathologists who in turn got them from abortion clinics.”
