the final conflict and the path of the
share with you the following email. Satan
is the father of lies, and unfortunately
he is able to deceive Catholics, even renewed
ones in CFC, and keep them from seeing the
truth. Obama indeed was elected due to the
support of many Catholics in the US and
the silence of the hierarchy. Now there
is the possibility of Noynoy being elected
with the support of many Catholics, including
bishops, priests and nuns. We are in for
a fight, because the enemy is within, even
in CFC-FFL itself.
must stand up for what is right. The crisis
in 2007 cut our membership but God raised
a remnant that will truly do His will.
He also focused us on the work of renewing
the family and defending life, which are
the core issues in the spiritual conflict
of the third millennium. We are supposed
to be a holy remnant. We cannot be holy
if we accept, wittingly or unwittingly,
the intrinsic evil that is RH and being
pro-choice. We will continue to speak
against the culture of death, and stand
up for authentic Catholic teaching, as
expressed by the Holy Father. If we lose
more members because of this, so be it.
I prefer a solid core of pro-family and
pro-life brethren than a bigger number
of brethren who have become the enemy
religious groups and some clerics and
bishops are too concerned about losing
their flock, to the point of not rocking
the boat and not speaking about the evils
of RH. I remind them: such brethren, if
they persist in their beliefs, are no
longer the Lord's flock, but belong to
the enemy. Speak the truth, so that they
can be enlightened and truly become the
Lord's flock. Otherwise, what such groups
and clerics fear would happen, that of
losing them, is actually what has already
lost brethren who did not want to learn
the lessons of Lamentations, but preferred
to just be fulfilled in Christ. We may
lose brethren who do not like to learn
the lessons of Job, but prefer the gospel
of prosperity (popular Catholic preachers
are already on that track). This is why
our theme for this year, given the further
lessons of this political exercise, is
so important. We must have the righteousness
of Job and experience his suffering in
order that we might be holy instruments
of redemption in the world.
or lose this election, win or lose some
brethren, win or lose the support of some
bishops and priests, we serve only the
Almighty God, and we serve only the true
Church that Jesus founded, with the Holy
Father as his vicar. I warn you: that
is the sure path of the cross. We will
be opposed, we will be persecuted, we
will be ridiculed. But we will be looked
on with love and favor by our Lord.
are exciting times. These are the end
times. We face the final conflict. It
is about family and life.
the grace and truth of God always be with
you. God bless.

RE: LifeSiteNews.com - Thursday May 6,
I have been a member of CFC for about
6 years now and like you, I am very much
in defense of life at the moment of conception.
When Obama was elected, I was surprised
to see how many in our Unit were in favor
of him despite that fact that they know
he is the most pro-abortion candidate.
I would like to suggest that as part of
the agenda for future CLS to include teachings
regarding abortion and contraception and
why these are intrinsically evil and how
they contribute in destroying the family
and life. Having our leaders go thru seminars
and teaching them as well so they can
in turn teach and evangelize. In the six
years that I have been a member, they
did not teach these things, which I think
is very important so members will know
the reason behind it and why the Church
takes a stand, as well as preserving the
Thank you and God bless!

Hello all. I point you to Steve's introduction.
First, even in the Vatican there will
be those who will not fully appreciate
the intense war that is raging for and
against life. How much more with bishops.
How much even more with priests.
Second, he talks of Governor Crist who
avers being pro-life, but will not act
decisively on what he claims he stands
for. In this intense culture war, there
is no such middle ground. One is either
a soldier of Christ right there in the
trenches, or is a desk-bound Christian
just observing from afar. Walang pakialam.

A Wednesday report, More Abortions Coming
from Poor, Minority Women: Guttmacher,
was mistakenly not sent out yesterday.
Sorry about that.
number of notable international pro-life
and Catholic leaders are astounded that
Archbishop Fisichella appears set to be
appointed to a high level position in
the Vatican. This is happening despite
the scandal of his continued and vehement
justification of a huge blunder regarding
that Brazilian abortion situation last
year. These are indeed very strange times.
governor Charlie Crist seems to be confirming
that, when the chips are down, he can't
be counted on. Instead of standing up
for principles, he is giving that classic,
tired, empty excuse of moral cowards -
"I am personally pro-life" but
unwilling "to impose my will on others."
Sigh. Tell that to the dead babies and
many devastated moms who regret their
abortions. Crist appears to be willing
to allow the abortion fanatics to continue
to impose their will on America.
