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. A series of undercover videos released by pro-life researcher David Daleiden showed abortionists and executives of biomedical companies callously describing how they obtain the bodies, and haggling over the prices…

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. According to Live Action, María del Valle González López went to…

Abortion is Never a Human Right

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. Mary’s consent at the Annunciation and her motherhood stand at the very beginning of the mystery of life which Christ came…

St. Joseph: Model of Fatherhood and Faithfulness

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / March 15, 2021 /

God, in His wisdom, chose to reveal Himself to us in Divine Revelation as Father. Theologians have ruminated at great length upon God’s Fatherhood, exploring what this mystery reveals about God’s nature and attributes. However, there is also much to learn by turning the question on its head, and instead asking what Scripture’s revelation of…

The Equality Act Necessitates a Response From All

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / March 8, 2021 /

What are we doing to ourselves, and to our children? This is a question I am pondering a lot as of late, as I watch our nation, and so many parts of the world, racing to embrace ever more extreme and ever more destructive forms of anti-life and anti-family ideology. With a kind of reckless…

The Mindset Behind Therapeutic Abortions

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / March 1, 2021 /

“It is true that the decision to have an abortion is often tragic and painful for the mother, insofar as the decision to rid herself of the fruit of conception is not made for purely selfish reasons or out of convenience, but out of a desire to protect certain important values such as her own…

Spiritual Shepherds Must Correct False Freedoms

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

Something very odd happens whenever a spiritual leader publicly defends some unpopular moral principle. Inevitably, people react with outrage, accusing the spiritual leader of restricting their “freedom,” and telling them to mind their own business. When, for instance, a Catholic bishop publicly reprimands a pro-abortion Catholic politician for his or her position, the politician and…
