Life - a Precious Gift

If you head over to Laura's you'll see her latest post which takes you to her "Papa's blog". This is what Papa had posted concerning a little tidbit from Fr. Corapi.

First of all, if you don't LOVE Fr. Corapi you need your head examined! Second of all, I did not know of the information which was shared. Very telling of the sanctity of life, don't you think?

Terri Shiavo was on my mind last night as I drifted off to sleep...just thinking of last moments people have had on this earth [Therese Fox was definitely there too - among my thoughts and prayers]. Thinking of what was done to her [Terri ] really made me cry as I thought of her last days - and the helplessness everyone...mostly her family...felt. I thought of Fr. Pavone being there. Witnessing the horror.

Let us remember the Sanctity of Life on Super Tuesday and Election Day. This is the issue. In my mind there is no other issue more important. I have no problem stating that I am a ONE ISSUE VOTER! Some think that people are idiots for doing so...even so-called Catholics. Well, I'm banking on good points from God for being an idiot then. Life is our greatest gift from the Greatest Giver. Let's help to protect it - from the womb to the tomb. Someone in Heaven may thank you for it one day.

May the souls of the faithfully departed, by the mercy of God, rest in peace.

I hear ya, Shelly. Pope Benedict XIV even wrote about how Catholics should not compromise on the life issue, how we are not to vote for pro-choicer politicians.
