You were right not to capitalize the word “Catholic” if it refers to one who supports abortion. I am appalled at the recent complete defection of Doug Kimiec. HOW he can support Obama, who is pro-infanticide....I simply CANNOT fathom.
I still believe there are some Democrats who are ignorant and not thinking long-term, who are shallow in their faith, but who are not radical. They will vote for Obama and you are correct that they probably will continue following wolves in sheeps’ clothing... until they have a real spiritual awakening.....or are led to utter destruction.
I am sure that Pope JP II weeps for them...as do Mary and Jesus Himself....but all are interceeding.....and graces are flowing to those who have ears to hear....and pliant hearts.
The Mother of Our Lord must have a most beautiful soul and spirit. I cannot fathom the pain it must cause to Her when she sees the horrific rejection of children in the womb, given Her astonishing acquiescence to the Will of God to give Her womb a shelter for Our Lord!
We are taught through scriptures that there will come a day when we will have no sorrow and will see no evil thing. But that day has not arrived and I believe Mary The Mother of Our Lord sees the horrible truth as it unfolds around the world, and especially in Catholic households. The truth of our spiritual disease state must crush Her courageous Heart, daily.
That such a Mother shares the heartbreak is sad and yet comforting when the soul awakens. Do I worship Mary? Never. She would never want that. Do I hold her in great esteem? Eternally. She IS the Mother of Our Lord, the Mother of My Lord. How can we not be grateful for such a humble, submitted soul and spirit that God saw so aligned that He chose Her to Mother Our Lord and Savior, God's incarnation among us?
