.”But is it really true that the new human being is a gift for his parents? A gift for society? Apparently nothing seems to indicate this. On occasion the birth of a child appears to be a simple statistical fact, registered like so many other data in demographic records. It is true that for the parents the birth of a child means more work, new financial burdens and further inconveniences, all of which can lead to the temptation not to want another birth. In some social and cultural contexts this temptation can become very strong. Does this mean that a child is not a gift? That it comes into the world only to take and not to give? These are some of the disturbing questions which men and women today find hard to escape. A child comes to take up room, when it seems that there is less and less room in the world. But is it really true that a child brings nothing to the family and society? Is not every child a “particle” of that common good without which human communities break down and risk extinction? Could this ever really be denied? The child becomes a gift to its brothers, sisters, parents and entire family. Its life becomes a gift for the very people who were givers of life and who cannot help but feel its presence, its sharing in their life and its contribution to their common good and to that of the community of the family.”

Hey people - I am here - but I have been so busy with school, and the family and work and general life that my prayer life and hence my blogging life was out of whack.
Prayer life is turning around, but I could use some prayers too - I mean who couldn’t.

…Don’t give me any of that “you can be ‘pro-life’ and yet not talk about abortion because ‘pro-life’ can’t be limited to the abortion issue” seam-less garment blah blah. We have to defend the poor and the un-born. Don’t give me that “we help the unborn more by not talking about abortion and focusing on government entitlement programs for the poor”. B as in B. S as in S. We don’t have to choose between the unborn and the poor. We can’t choose between them. We have to choose both. Silence about the unborn and avoidance of the issue for the sake of a “bigger picture” is a cop out. Without the right to be born, the other social justice issues are so much wind in the weeds.
Moreover, though we must help the poor, the best ways to help the poor are matters of contingent moral judgments (about we Catholics can disagree). The right to life of the unborn is not a matter of contingent moral judgments (we Catholics can’t disagree)…

I apologize for the lack of updates.
I have been taking summer classes that I guess would be considered full time ( 6hrs in the summer - never done it before but its a bit more than I was use to (part time last semester) )
I could use some followers over on my Facebook page if any of you are into that sort of thing:
That would really lift my spirits, and if I see an increase of likes I will be reminded to post something good ;-)
Prayers of course are welcome as well.
