Is the tyranny of Roe v. Wade in the United States about to fall? For the first time in years, pro-lifers have serious reason to hope that the aim towards which they have worked for so many decades – the end of Roe v. Wade – will finally come about, and as soon as next…

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / May 17, 2021 /

“In the proclamation of this Gospel, we must not fear hostility or unpopularity, and we must refuse any compromise or ambiguity which might conform us to the world’s way of thinking (cf. Rom 12:2).

The drumbeat of bad news coming from the Biden administration can certainly be discouraging for pro-life and pro-family activists. It seems that hardly a week passes without some horrific new announcement from the administration, pushing abortion or some other assault on basic moral truths. However, as I have emphasized so often in the past, it’s…

“Modern man listens more willingly to witnesses than to teachers, and if he does listen to teachers, it is because they are witnesses.” ─ Pope St. Paul VI, Evangelii Nuntiandi, no. 41 Throughout his pontificate, Pope Francis has repeatedly warned against the temptation to make the Church into just another non-profit organization.

Stop the Industry of Death and Exploitation

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / April 29, 2021 /

In recent years, pro-lifers have exposed the gruesome, ongoing practice of harvesting and buying and selling the body parts of aborted children for medical research.

Just a few days ago, a 23-year-old pro-abortion leader in Argentina died after a legal abortion. Argentina only legalized abortion at the end of last year, but abortion has already claimed the life of a young woman, not to mention thousands of unborn children.

How is it still possible to speak of the dignity of every human person when the killing of the weakest and most innocent is permitted? In the name of what justice is the most unjust of discriminations practised: some individuals are held to be deserving of defence and others are denied that dignity? ─ Pope…

Gender Ideologues Are Gaslighting Us

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / April 5, 2021 /

The official dictionary definition of the term “gaslight” is to “manipulate (someone) by psychological means into questioning their own sanity.” I thought of this term the other day after I read two paragraphs in a CNN article, originally published on Tuesday, March 30, about how South Dakota governor Kristi Noem issued two executive orders stating…

Why the Church Protects Human Sexuality and Marriage

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / March 29, 2021 /

A few days ago the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) somehow captured global headlines for doing something that is not particularly noteworthy, and certainly not surprising. In a brief statement – called a Responsum – the CDF responded to a question about whether or not the Church can offer “blessings” to…

Celebrating The Day of the Unborn Child

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / March 22, 2021 /

The one who accepted “Life” in the name of all and for the sake of all was Mary, the Virgin Mother; she is thus most closely and personally associated with the Gospel of life.
