Pray for the Church in America

The Catholic Cavemen link to a site which tell how Catholic Bishops have approved some Catholic hospitals in the US giving the "morning after" pill to women who have been sexually assaulted. This is justified as follows:

"The bishops of these dioceses believe they are allowing the use of emergency contraception only in cases where "appropriate testing" has determined that the woman is not pregnant and thus the pill, in halting ovulation may prevent a pregnancy occurring as a result of the rape. The science however does not definitively back up their hopes."

Pray for a Church whose leaders can be (let us be charitable) so ignorant. Pray that they may see the gates of Hell, which gape open for such as collude in the murder of innocent children.

(I also thought about posting about motes and beams. Geddit?)

When you say "Pray that they may see the gates of Hell" do you mean that you want them to go to Hell or to be presented with the gates of Hell from the outside so as to shake them up?
I agree with you that the Episcopate has much to answer for.
I pray daily for good Bishops as well as for more vocations to the priesthood.

Sorry I wasn't clear - the latter, of course.

I sometimes think that the only thing that will shake some Catholics into a full realisation of how divergent they have become from what the Church has always taught will be a vision of Hell.

Ttony,
Unfortunantly, many so-called "Catholics" here in The States don't believe in hell. Well, the hell that the Blessed Mother showed the children at Fatima, anyway.

The "hell" that our Modernist clerics preach about here is some fairy tale about "eternal seperation from God"... period. No pain, no gnashing of teeth, no wailing. Just some sort of afterlife eternal waiting line at the Department of Motor Vehicles where we never quite make it to the end of the line so we can FINALLY get out drivers license renewed.

You see, it's all pain-free Catholicism here. martin luther would be proud.
