“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

An Unfiltered Gospel

Fr. Thomas Euteneuer, from Human Life International, posts a gutsy letter in the same line of thought as my Ted Kennedy thoughts below:

"While I pray for Sen. Kennedy’s recovery from a brain tumor, I pray more for his recovery from the cancerous metastasis of abortion ideology in his soul."

On an exciting note, he references a letter sent by Kennedy to a constituent stating Kennedy's strong pro-life position more than 30 years. I was 3 years old when this letter was delivered to my house, addressed to my father.

I often think of developing a web site called VianneysList.com, that recognizes outstanding priests who preach the unfiltered Gospel. Fr. Euteneuer would be in the inaugural class, as well as priest like Benedict Groschel, Fr. Corapi, Fr. Frank Pavone, etc...

Fr. Euteneuer also wrote an outstanding, and once again gutsy, column that called Bishop Lynch of St. Petersburg to the mat on fleeing his diocese in silence while Terri Schiavo starved to death.
