On September 20th, during a Papal Audience, a man drew close to Pope Francis, carrying with him a somewhat suspicious looking bag. Inside were half a dozen surgical instruments of various types and sizes which he, Dr Antonio Oriente from Messina, ex-abortion gynaecologist, wanted to deliver at all costs to the Holy Father.
This luggage had already created problems as he boarded the plane from Palermo. He then became the central protagonist in an event, that despite being unscheduled on the programme of the Mater Care International Conference in Rome had an enormous symbolic impact on the participants.
These were the surgical instruments which, until 1986, Dr Oriente had used to break apart tiny developing human lives before they had a chance to be born; scalpels and forceps used by him, before his conversion, before he had embraced with courage and conviction the pro-life pathway.
Dr Oriente is now vice-President of the Italian Association of Catholic Gynaecologists and Obstetricians.
For those who read Italian the story is reported in the Catholic daily newspaper Avvenire , Thursday 26 September. http://www.scienzaevita.org/rassegne/55cc57a9dd5a23a1a937a960617b4e89.pdf
hehehe! that’s funny!
So now I wonder how Roman teens said things like “Groovy” and “Far out” in Latin?
But the MSM said the Pope said we shouldn’t be obsessed with abortion - sarc
“What we have here is failure to communicate” as the saying goes.
Pope Francis says it in Latin, MSM does not speak that thus tries to translate it using Google translator or some other faulty program. MSM fact check? BWAHAHHAA If they could speak his language they’d have no need for a translator and know what he really said. Or they’d just ask a Catholic Priest like in the old days.
Any way that is my opinion on all this.
This is a terrible and beautiful story.
Wow! I’d love to hear his entire story of how he came to repent.
May God be praised!
He was attending a meeting of gynecologists and planned to present his tools to the Pope.
In 1986 he had a sudden and profound thing happen to him which pushed him to abandon his tools and become a medical objector to abortion.
"The tools are a symbol of delivery of a past that no longer belongs but we need look to the future alongside the Lord of Mercy."
Prayer changes things.
Prayer can change the hardest of hearts and there will be an end to the abortion industry when abortionists repent and give it up.
Hard as it is to pray for people committing such atrocities, it’s really the best answer.
