God bless our Knights of Columbus! Next weekend the KofC council from my parish will hold their annual Wal-Mart parking lot BBQ – the proceeds from which go to three pro-life organizations in our state, including one local crisis pregnancy center.

TOB Tuesday: Fasting is Preparation for Feasting

ChelseaReligion, Theology of the Body, TOB Tuesday0 Comments

As the season of Lent comes to a close and we get set for the “big day” of fasting this Friday, TOB expert Christopher West offers this beautiful explanation of how this fast can prepare us for the great feast of Easter: Fasting allows us to feel our hunger. And feeling our physical hunger can, if we allow it, lead … Read More

The “Unrealistic” and “Oppressive” Christian Ideal

ChelseaPro Life1 Comment

I just love it when people who don’t believe in God not only tell Christians their morals are wrong, but also come up with their own ideas about what God “probably” really thinks…umm…you know…if He existed. Check out “Nunly”‘s post NOW I’M OPPRESSED AND SEXUALLY DIVORCED FROM REALITY? in which she hilariously rips apart a HuffPo article by Rob Asghar … Read More

God Bless All Adoptive Parents!

ChelseaFamily, Pro Life, video1 Comment

Adoptive parents? Is that right? Adopting parents? Parents who adopt? Anyway…I finally watched “The Blind Side” last night. Great movie – very life affirming – and the best part is it’s actually true! Here is a good mini doc. about Michael Oher (who, BTW, helped Ole Miss give my Mighty Gators their only defeat in their 2008 Championship season) – … Read More

CBS Does ESCR Puff Piece

ChelseaEmbryonic Stem Cell Research, Pro Life1 Comment

Here’s something we haven’t talked about in a while. I don’t watch the news, so I am thankful to a friend of mine for alerting me in a message on Facebook last week that CBS had aired a favorable report on embryonic stem cell research. Here’s video of the report: Watch CBS News Videos Online It’s your basic MSM ESCR … Read More

Today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Annunciation, when the Archangel Gabriel appeared to Mary and announced that she had found favor with God and would conceive and bear a son who would be called the Son of the Most High. This day calls to mind two very specific moments which correspond with the culture of life. The first is … Read More

Life Before Party

ChelseaPro Life3 Comments

Glad to see a couple of level-headed responses to this week’s great pro-life Democrat betrayal. First, Thomas Peters writes, and I agree: I know we’re all stinging after Bart Stupak’s betrayal last Sunday (I am), but I think those who are now claiming, in the heat of the moment, that there is “no such thing as a pro-life Democrat” are … Read More

TOB Tuesday: TOB for Tykes

ChelseaSex, Sexuality, TOB Tuesday0 Comments

While I do not agree that 5 year olds need to learn about homosexuality or masturbation and other such things, I also do not think it’s harmful to ground our children, even from a young age, in a proper understanding of human sexuality – what our bodies are made for, why we are created as male and female, etc… This … Read More

Let Nothing Disturb Thee

ChelseaPro Life3 Comments

For the last 24 hours, I have heard from several pro-lifers who are (understandably) sad, mad, defeated and afraid after the House’s late night approval of the not-so life affirming Senate health care bill yesterday. I wanted to write out my own thoughts about the bill’s passage, about the Stupak betrayal and the phony abortion funding compromise. But this is … Read More

Good Marriage Advice

ChelseaFamily, Love, Marriage0 Comments

Some good advice you can add to Monday’s post on marriage: Husband and wife will be happy together if they learn to overcome selfishness and love of comfort, if they avoid seeking personal compensations for every sacrifice they make, and if they know how to give without expecting anything in return. To achieve all this, it will greatly help them … Read More
