March For Life and Blogs4Life : Success

The Blogs For Life Conference was Great! And so was the March for Life, with 300,000 + participants of all ages and creeds. Inspite of the 'regular' media ignoring this annual event, or , in the case of Newsweek, going out of their way to 'misreport' it, the 'in person' support for the culture of life grows year to year. Hurrah!

Speakers included Jill Stanek, Kristen Day (Democrats for Life), Joseph Farah (WorldNetDaily), Carol Clews (Center for Pregnancy Concerns), Kristin Hansen (CareNet), Marjorie Dannenfelser (Susan B. Anthony List), Charmaine Yoest (Americans United for Life), David Prentice (StemCellResearchFacts.org), Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO), Tony Perkins (FRC) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).

An emerging online technologies panel featured Molotov Mitchell(Illuminati Pictures), Peter Shinn (ProLifeUnity.com) and Krystle Weeks(FRC).

In addition, Katie Walker of the American Life League hosted a panel of ALL's Pro-Life Blog Contest Winners

15 January 2010

Dear Friends,

The catastrophe in Haiti caused us to reach out and save the lives of hundreds of thousands who are homeless and have children and relatives who are without anything. Many people have lost hope in Haiti and are turning to the second big capital city Cap-Haitian where our brothers are for refuge. Our brothers have taken them in. Our Community Chapel is now a refugee center and the Asile Communal Center for homeless and destitute adults as well as our Bethlehem Center for disabled children have been expanded to take in temporary refugees. Brother Henry is receiving people from the Hospitals, and from trucks and buses coming from Port au Prince to the Missionaries of the Poor to receive shelter. Jesuit priests from the Dominican Republic and others are now helping the brothers in this refugee work.

Our Brother John Presca, MOP has lost his sister in the earthquake. Brother Loubert, MOP has lost his aunt and brother Pierre Charles' entire family is missing. All three are our Haitian Brothers.

We need all the support you can offer specially with basic food items like rice, corn meal, flour, sugar beans and clean water. Home supplies like beds, bed linens, clothes, towels, etc. are also greatly needed.

In His service,

Rev. Fr. Richard Ho Lung, MOP
Superior General

Martin Luther King - The Legacy

Dr. Alveda King, niece of the celebrated Martin Luther King Jr., reminds us that 'the Dream' includes everybody, even the unborn:

"Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke of a Beloved Community where all are treated with respect and dignity," said Dr. King. "He fought against society's exclusion of people who were treated as less than human because of their appearance. Today, we are compelled to continue Uncle Martin's fight by standing up for those who are treated as less than human because of their helplessness and inconvenience.

"The unborn are as much a part of the Beloved Community as are newborns, infants, teenagers, adults, and the elderly. Too many of us speak of tolerance and inclusion, yet refuse to tolerate or include the weakest and most innocent among us in the human family. As we celebrate the life of Uncle Martin, let us renew our hearts and commit our lives to treating each other, whatever our race, status, or stage of life, as we would want to be treated. Let us let each other live."
