Two weeks ago I asked Fr. Guarnizo the following question which, at that time, he did not answer:
As you know, It is the president who will make nominations to the Supreme Court and those nominations must only then be confirmed by the Senate. Therefore, it is the president who obviously is the most crucial person in the process of populating the court with whomever he/she believes most closely corresponds to their own political objectives. I don't intend to follow up or to argue about other points but simply would like you to go on the record with your answer. God bless.
.
To repeat:
.

I have one question. Which of the two candidates would you prefer making Supreme Court nominations (as many as 3 or 4 or perhaps even 5) knowing that those nominations would likely influence the policies of the United States for decades. . Hillary?

@SAA5of5 : Obviously I am not speaking about the Catholic Church as such but, as you rightly say, "a (clear) majority of her current members (especially popes, cardinals, bishops and priests)". I would believe that among the bishops of Western Europe (the Pope included), there are not five who have unequivocally positioned themselves as pro-life. I know it is horrible what I am writing now: Do we expect from a candidate for the U.S. presidency to be more Catholic than the Pope? That seems to be very unrealistic.

@Abramo, to say, "nor any Republican or Democrat," I understand if you are pointing out the failure of previous so-called life-supporting presidents. But to suggest it into infinity is saying abandon ship and run ... where? I think we had good candidates and the American people opted for...well, for a good laugh and some hope that all of Trump's (questionable), "winning" would end up in their wallets.
I agree the candidates can't rely on a, "Catholic vote" as they did at one time. The people in the pews are very divided on major issues that would be considered either, "liberal" or "conservative."
Since you brought up the Catholic Church and her bishops, I am going to guess that the division in the Church is not 50/50 but rather "many" vs. "few," and pretty much the same distinction Cardinal Wuerl recently pointed to when discussing those unhappy with Pope Francis. If the Catholic Church is defined this way, I'm not Catholic. But you're "egging me on" 🤫 because I don't think you …More

Fasting with Christ - painting by Jason Micheli, meditation of St. Augustine.
St. Augustine (354–430)
Fasting cleanses the soul, raises the mind, subjects one’s flesh to the spirit, renders the heart contrite and humble, scatters the clouds of concupiscence, quenches the fire of lust, and kindles the true light of chastity. Enter again into yourself. [St. Augustine, “On Prayer and Fasting,” Quoted by St. Thomas Aquinas].

Carhart's Personal War on Women: Third Ambulance in Seven Weeks.

Reggie Littlejohn-raising China's youngest political prisoner.
Anni Zhang was first introduced to Reggie Littlejohn over the radio. This is what Reggie recalls having said to her:
"Annie! I am so impressed with you! I'm impressed with your courage. I'm impressed with your intelligence, with your articulateness, with your poise, that at 10 years old you have the wherewithal to stand up against the Chinese Communist Party! If you could remain true, if you could remain humble, if you could remain pure, you could help lead your people to freedom!"
Reggie Littlejohn is the founder of Women's Rights Without Frontiers which works for the end to China's coercive measures to regulate population, including forced abortion and forced sterilization. She and her husband are now raising Anni Zhang, a survivor of China's one-child policy, and her older sister.
