What the Church Must Learn From the Hideous Irish Referendum

On May 25 a referendum introduced killing unborn babies in Ireland. Joseph Shaw calls this on LMSChairman.org (May 27) a “hideous, painful, and morally outrageous event”.

According to him, the best use we can make out of this is public repentance, “It is a truism to say that penance is undervalued in the Church today.”

Shaw suggests introducing the versicle “Spare, O Lord, spare thy people, and be not angry with them for ever” before Benediction, and to celebrate public Masses a year in reparation for abortion and other manifestations of the “culture” of death.

Silence of the Pope and Irish Clergy has led to murder of babies in Ireland, far worse than sex abuse scandal which was regrettably 2-4% same as other religions, Abuse is 5%in Schools/institutions and nearly 70% in child's home by boyfriends etc, why isn't the Media appalled by this?

It is because Satan who is working through the Media/Hollywood etc is trying to destroy the only true religion established by Jesus Christ - the Catholic Church , but fear not we have been promised "the gates of hell will not prevail against it"

Radulf: problem is that we cannot reverse history. We'd better try a realistic solution: praying the Rosary daily and looking forward to the Triumph of Mary.

David Alton: "The cruel and barbaric procedures used to abort babies are an infamy - the antithesis of everything that a civilised society should hold dear"

There is only one thing the Church can (and should!) learn from this and from everything going on in the Church and the world: to turn the clock back. Sixty years to be precise.

And she should become the Church militant again.
