Wisdom on the betrayal of Holy Week and Obamacare

Fr George Rutler puts the bitterness which has overtaken my soul over the health care plan into perspective. This is not the first time in history that the innocent have been betrayed by crooked hypocritical politicians using God's name in vain.
Read his meditation  here,and offer your fasting, prayers and mortifications this Holiest of Weeks, in reparation for the thousands of innocents who will die as a result of the bill. We have learned nothing from the death of Terri Schiavo, whose anniversary is March 31.
This blog will rest here until the Resurrection of Our Lord on Easter Sunday. I will be singing the Triduum for Holy Week in our church choir; Missa del Angelis, Panis Angelicus, Pange Lingua, O Sacred Head Surrounded, Ave Verum Corpus (Mozart), O Sacrum Convivium, Mass of the Blessed Sacrament,Ubi Caritas, and The King of Love My Shepherd Is. When politics disappoints, and it always does, there is always the Mass to soothe our battle weary souls.

A Blessed Holy Week to my readers.

Leticia, how do I access that link, or the actual meditation? Your link sends me to a Facebook page I don't have access to.

Sorry, Father, all fixed!

Leticia, hope you have a blessed Holy Week. Wish I could be there to hear your choir on Easter!

Fr.Rutler is quite right to point out that the new law is a betrayal of the sanctity of human life and the freedom of an informed conscience. It is also a betrayal of the dignity of human initiative and of human solidarity, imposing, as it does, an attempted federal bureaucratic solution to an essentially local problem of care and compassion. There is no substitute, however well financed, professionally designed or well intentioned, for wise and unselfish love.

I really like the analogy Father Rutler makes to the friendship of Pilate and Herod, formed by the bond of betrayal to the basic human rights of Jesus, Our Lord. I will be meditating on that this Friday.

FYI, I have fixed the "technical difficulites" with our Pro-Life Tuesdays blog hop, if you want to join in. :)We'll have it every Tuesday.

In Christ,
