(I saw this piece in the vestibule of a local church, and while very brief, it drives the point home concerning the atrocity of abortion. As Americans, we spend so much energy, time and resources fighting the war on terror, yet we fail to see the terror that takes place in the slaughter and torture of millions of innocent American lives at the hands of their own mothers. We are killing our own people and as a result have become a culture of death, rather than life! God’s love, mercy and forgiveness is available to all who have engaged in this terrible atrocity, but we must turn from this sin, and with humility, repent with a contrite heart to become properly disposed to God’s saving grace, which comes through the passion, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.)

Since the beginning of the Iraq war, over 7,000000 American mothers have murdered their babies. This slaughter continues at the rate of 3,500 murders per day. God’s precious treasures are wiped out like some kind of bad germs. EWTN World News reports: “43% of American Women under 45 have had an abortion.” Pope John Paul II and Mother Teresa have both said that the evil of abortion is at the heart of the mess we see in today’s world. Mother Teresa said, “Abortion is the mother of all holocausts.”
At Fatima, our Blessed Mother told Jacinta: “War is a punishment for sin.” In both the Old and New Testaments, whenever God’s chosen people strayed from His Ten Commandments of love, He was forced, as a loving Father, to take drastic measures to bring them to their knees in repentance.
God’s mercy, forgiveness, and amazing grace cannot get through to us until we go to the sacrament of reconciliation and the remove the blockage of sin.
In 2 Chronicles 7:14, we read, “If My people who are called by My Name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
