in Corde Regis

Today, Friday June 19, 2009 is the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus!

Traditional Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before Thy altar. We are Thine, and Thine we wish to be; but to be more surely united with Thee, behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Thy most Sacred Heart. Many indeed have never known Thee; many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart. Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee; grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger. Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that soon there may be but one flock and one Shepherd. Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or of Islamism, and refuse not to to draw them all into the light and kingdom of God. Turn Thine eyes of mercy towards the children of that race, once Thy chosen people: of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may It now descend upon them, a laver of redemption and of life. Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: "Praise be to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation; to It be glory and honor for ever." Amen.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Kingdom come!

Killer Tiller

Pro-Life Action League Condmned the shooting and also posted this entertaing story :

Joe Scheidler has a long history with George Tiller, going back to the 1980s. He once shared a long cab ride with Tiller when they both showed up late at the New Orleans airport for a National Abortion Federaration (NAF) meeting.
Not realizing that Scheidler was a pro-life activist, Tiller told him about the utility of ultrasound technology for performing late-term abortions—the subject of a talk he was giving at the NAF meeting—and invited him to visit his Wichita, Kansas clinic. Once the NAF meeting began, Tiller realized who Scheidler was and refused to show the footage of how he was using ultrasound in abortions until Scheidler left the room.
Scheidler later took Tiller up on his invitation and visited Tiller's abortuary in Wichita—with cameras and reporters from the local media. No abortions were performed that day.

Ann Coulter said it best though:

As long as we're deciding who does and doesn't have an "absolute right to be
born," who's to say late-term abortionists have an "absolute right" to live?I
wouldn't kill an abortionist myself, but I wouldn't want to impose my moral
values on others. No one is for shooting abortionists. But how will
criminalizing men making difficult, often tragic, decisions be an effective
means of achieving the goal of reducing the shootings of abortionists? Following
the moral precepts of liberals, I believe the correct position is: If you don't believe in shooting abortionists, then don't shoot


For all of those who regularly read my blog, I apologize for not posting in a while. I can't believe it's already June, the month of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus!

Last month was a busy month. (news flash!) Some highlights! (Besides the Notre Dame controversy):

We attended a rally with Americans for Life.
Jill Stanek, "the Worst Person in the World"

Mr. Scheidler also spoke

Then, the day after that, we made a pilgrimage up to Holy Hill near Milwaukee, Wisconsin with some of the Institute of Christ the King Apostalates. Canon Talarico gave a dynamic homily, you can read it here.
