The Only Anomalies That Must Concern Us Are Our Sins

As has been noted several times before on this website, including in  Chronicling the Adversary's Global Takeover of the Healthcare Industry six years ago, which is included in a book published three years ago, Life, Death, and Truth: Under Attack by Medicine and Law, the combined diabolical forces of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and various groups funded by the Soros Foundation have engaged in what former president arack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro would call a “transformational vision” to shift the emphasis of the global healthcare industry from the treatment and healing of patients to the rationing of healthcare according to the conclusions reached by a “team” of “professionals” who are trained to view a patient in terms of what they, the so-called “professionals,” consider is his “quality of life” and not as they would treat Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the very Flesh.

Every aspect of the education, internship, residency and “continuing education” programs of physicians (and every medical specialty) is based upon assessing a patient’s “quality of life” according to utilitarian standards that, in plain English, arrogate unto mere men to determine who is “deserving” to life and who must be put on path to “ease” them out of them pain and then into the grave according to a “plan” that they have convinced the patients and/or his relatives to accept after using an entire range of psychological pressure, subtle and overt depending upon the level of acceptance or resistance, to secure their consent and their submissive compliance.

To give just one example of how pervasive the system of “palliative care” has become, it is very commonplace for patients suffering from old-fashioned vascular dementia or from Alzheimer’s Disease to be pressured by “healthcare” providers to convince spouses, children or other relatives to dispense what can be called the “palliative care package” of pills and potions designed to make the victim patient “comfortable” but are designed to send their loved one into a coma, whereupon another set of pills are prescribed that finish him off once and for all.

As this is just standard procedure across the world, those who have are suffering from dementia of one sort or another are especially susceptible to having their lives ended when their lives are considered to have lost “meaning.” Elderly people suffering from declining cognitive abilities are likely to have their lives ended in their “merciful” manner. However, believing, informed Catholics know that this is murder, plain and simple, disguised to look like an act of “compassion” to alleviate human suffering. It is no such thing. 

The situation is so very bad that almost everyone over the age of seventy, a group that includes this writer, of course, is being scrutinized he has the misfortune of walking into a conventional physician or specialist’s office. This scrutiny usually starts with the medical records assistant, whose job it is to talk to the patient to make a psychological assessment as to his “quality of life.”

Does the patient feel “safe” at home?

Does the patient get his vaccinations regularly like a good, compliant lemming?

Is the patient aware of his surroundings?

Is he deemed to be suffering from financial distress, conflict at home or other signs of agitation?

Is the patient likely to be accepting of or resistant to the course of treatment recommended by the “healthcare” team?

Is the patient overweight or underweight, unkempt, disheveled, overly fussy, or fidgety?

Do you think that I am making this up?


Here is an example of how one is assessed when one visits an orthopedist to receive a diagnosis of “end stage” osteoarthritis of his knees:

General, neuro, psychiatric, respiratory, cardiovascular, GI, GU, blood and lymph, EENT musculoskeletal, skin, and endocrine systems are normal.

How can a determination be made about one’s psychiatric condition from a casual observation during a visit to an orthopedist, no less make medical judgments about bodily systems that have not been examined during the visit? 

Medical professionals believe that they are competent to make such snap judgments, which become part of a patient’s permanent medical record, and it is an everyday occurrence for these professionals to determine that patients who have some chronic condition that is not life-threatening must be eased into “comfort care,” thereby making patient an unknowing accomplice in his own execution over the course of time.

The judgments of healthcare professionals about human beings alleged “quality of life” is accepted as unquestionably infallible truths by judges in cases brought by patients and/or family members to prevent hospital administrators and staff from imposing death sentences upon those with chronic conditions or terminal illnesses are believed to be of no “value” to the patients, their family members, or to society. This is case here in the United States of America and around the world, including in the country whose medical and legal professions oversaw the execution of young Charlie Gard in 2017, the United Kingdom, where a judge has told a fully conscious patient who wants to live that he must be sentenced to death:

UK court has ruled a 19-year-old critically ill female patient with a rare disorder cannot make her own decisions about continuing her medical care, as her family battles her doctors' desire to stop treatment and pursue end-of-life care.

The teen, whose identity has been anonymized as "ST" by the court, has a rare genetic mitochondrial disease that is progressively degenerative, according to court documents. Her condition is similar to that of Charlie Gard, the infant whose story drew global headlines in 2017. Charlie's parents lost a bid to bring him to the U.S. for an experimental treatment for his critical condition and he died after the hospital withdrew life-saving care after a months-long high profile legal battle.

Despite previously being a student studying for her A-levels (short for advanced levels), the 19-year-old girl has spent the past year in the ICU, dependent on a ventilator and a feeding tube. She requires regular dialysis due to chronic kidney damage from her disease. "ST" is currently fighting the hospital to be allowed to travel to Canada for an experimental treatment to treat her disease.

The Christian Legal Centre, which is advocating for the patient, argues her case is different than Gard's because she is conscious and able to communicate and argue in her defense.

But her doctor believe "ST" is "actively dying" and has no hope of a cure to resume life outside intensive care. They are asking the court to end her dialysis treatments and pursue palliative care instead. The hospital told the court the 19-year-old is incapable of making decisions about her future medical care because she is under the "delusion" that her death is not imminent.

The teen, who comes from a strong Christian family, confessed she realizes the treatment may not help extend her life but wants to keep fighting.

"This is my wish. I want to die trying to live. We have to try everything," she told clinicians, according to court documents.

Her family has spent their entire life savings to treat the girl, the Christian Legal Centre said, and wants to go to the public to raise funds for the expensive treatment, but cannot due to a "transparency order" requested by the hospital which bars reporting any information which might identify "ST", her family, or the hospital.

The girl's family described the long battle with the hospital as "a year of continuous torture" for them.

"Not only are we anxious about our beloved daughter’s fight for survival, but we have also been cruelly gagged from being able to speak about her situation. We are not allowed to ask people for prayers or for help which she desperately needs. It is a matter of life and death for our daughter to raise money for treatment in Canada, so these arbitrary reporting restrictions are literally killing her," they said via legal representation.

In court this week, a judge determined the teen "is able to communicate reasonably well with her doctors with assistance from her mother and, on occasion, speech therapists." Two psychiatrists assessed the teen was capable of making decisions about her future care for herself.

However, the judge said that, "ST" was mentally incapable of making decisions for herself because "she does not believe the information she has been given by her doctors." The judge ruled that decisions about ST's further care should be determined by the Court of Protection based on an assessment of her best interests.

"We are shocked to be told by the judge that our daughter does not have capacity to make decisions for herself after all the experts have said that she does. We are very distressed by this injustice, and we hope that, by Jesus’s grace, this will be corrected on appeal," the family of the patient said. 

Andrea Williams, the Chief Executive of Christian Legal Centre, blasted the transparency order and called the case "profoundly disturbing."

"This profoundly disturbing case demonstrates the urgent need for an overhaul into how end-of-life decisions are made in the NHS and the Courts," she said.

"What can be more natural or rational for a seriously ill 19-year-old than to leave no stone unturned and to take every chance of survival? ST has wanted to tell her story to the world in order to try and access further treatment but has been prevented from doing so by the ironically named Court of Protection," she said in a statement.

The NHS did not respond to a request for comment. (UK court rules teen with rare disorder incapable of making decisions about care despite begging to live.)

So much for “personal autonomy.”

So much for the empty slogan, “My body, my choice.”

Anyone who has been reading my work for the past thirty years or so, dating back to my days when anywhere from one to three columns of mine would appear in The Wanderer each week, knows that such monstrously heartless decisions do not belong to the station of man to make but are the inevitable consequence of the “Brexit” that began in 1534 when the lecherous drunkard bigamist named Henry VIII sought to divorce his true wife, Catherine of Aragon, so that he could marry his own illegitimate daughter, Anne Boleyn, in the quest to produce a male heir, thereby breaking with the true Church and commencing a bloody persecution against the Catholics of England and Ireland who remain steadfast in their fealty to the one and only true Church founded by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, the Catholic Church.

The heretical and schismatic Anglican sect has gone from denying Papal Primary and other revealed doctrines to endorsing one immoral act after another, starting with divorce in the Sixteenth Century, of course, and from there to the denial of the Sovereignty of God over the sanctity and fecundity of Holy Matrimony by means of contraception, to the support for the surgical execution of innocent preborn children in the sanctuaries of their mothers’ wombs, sodomy and all its ever evolving, ever mutating variations, up to and including so-called “transgenderism,” which is now considered such a “fundamental right” that the forcible indoctrination into this diabolical nightmare is considered beyond a parent’s right to intervene before his child is surgically mutilated and chemically poisoned. The Anglican sect has devolved to the point where many of its so-called ministers (who are nothing other than lay people dressed up in clerical garb) do not believe in the Sacred Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ or the inerrancy of Sacred Scripture while there are some among their wretched numbers who do not even believe in the generic Judeo-Masonic notion of a deity. Court-ordered euthanasia is one of the many inevitable consequences of the Protestant Revolution’s overthrow of the Divine Plan that God Himself instituted to effect man’s return to Him through His Catholic Church, and it is this is exact same path of auto-destruction upon which the entire false conciliar religion itself has been set upon repeating.

No one is safe any longer.

Although I have used the quotation from a 1941sermon given by the courageous Bishops Clemens von Galen in Muenster, Germany many times in the past, it is good to do so once again in order to remind readers that one must exercise extraordinary caution when dealing with most medical professionals unless dealing with a personal friend who is aware of the “palliative care” agenda that is woven so seamlessly throughout the entirety of the healthcare industry today:

We must expect, therefore, that the poor defenceless patients are, sooner or later, going to be killed. Why? Not because they have committed any offence justifying their death, not because, for example, they have attacked a nurse or attendant, who would be entitled in legitimate self-defence to meet violence with violence. In such a case the use of violence leading to death is permitted and may be called for, as it is in the case of killing an armed enemy.

No: these unfortunate patients are to die, not for some such reason as this but because in the judgment of some official body, on the decision of some committee, they have become “unworthy to live,” because they are classed as “unproductive members of the national community”.

The judgment is that they can no longer produce any goods: they are like an old piece of machinery which no longer works, like an old horse which has become incurably lame, like a cow which no longer gives any milk. What happens to an old piece of machinery? It is thrown on the scrap heap. What happens to a lame horse, an unproductive cow?

I will not pursue the comparison to the end, so fearful is its appropriateness and its illuminating power.

But we are not here concerned with pieces of machinery; we are not dealing with horses and cows, whose sole function is to serve mankind, to produce goods for mankind. They may be broken up; they may be slaughtered when they no longer perform this function.

No: We are concerned with men and women, our fellow creatures, our brothers and sisters! Poor human beings, ill human beings, they are unproductive, if you will. But does that mean that they have lost the right to live? Have you, have I, the right to live only so long as we are productive, so long as we are recognised by others as productive?

If the principle that men is entitled to kill his unproductive fellow-man is established and applied, then woe betide all of us when we become aged and infirm! If it is legitimate to kill unproductive members of the community, woe betide the disabled who have sacrificed their health or their limbs in the productive process! If unproductive men and women can be disposed of by violent means, woe betide our brave soldiers who return home with major disabilities as cripples, as invalids! If it is once admitted that men have the right to kill “unproductive” fellow-men even though it is at present applied only to poor and defenceless mentally ill patients ” then the way is open for the murder of all unproductive men and women: the incurably ill, the handicapped who are unable to work, those disabled in industry or war. The way is open, indeed, for the murder of all of us when we become old and infirm and therefore unproductive. Then it will require only a secret order to be issued that the procedure which has been tried and tested with the mentally ill should be extended to other “unproductive” persons, that it should also be applied to those suffering from incurable tuberculosis, the aged and infirm, persons disabled in industry, soldiers with disabling injuries!

Then no man will be safe: some committee or other will be able to put him on the list of “unproductive” persons, who in their judgment have become “unworthy to live”. And there will be no police to protect him, no court to avenge his murder and bring his murderers to justice.

Who could then have any confidence in a doctor? He might report a patient as unproductive and then be given instructions to kill him! It does not bear thinking of, the moral depravity, the universal mistrust which will spread even in the bosom of the family, if this terrible doctrine is tolerated, accepted and put into practice. Woe betide mankind, woe betide our German people, if the divine commandment, “Thou shalt not kill”, which the Lord proclaimed on Sinai amid thunder and lightning, which God our Creator wrote into man's conscience from the beginning, if this commandment is not merely violated but the violation is tolerated and remains unpunished! (Three Sermons of Bishop Clemens von Galen.)         

These words were spoken at the height of the Nazi regime’s enforcement of Adolf Hitler’s 1935 Nuremburg Laws, which institutionalized the sort of eugenic social engineering that had been envisioned—and was in use on a de facto basis—in Germany’s Weimar Republic between 1919 and 1933 and in which, interestingly enough, Jewish eugenicists played an active role:

Support for eugenics came from a remarkable array of the ruling elite and the walls of the exhibition are lined with quotes in support of the movement. President Coolidge stated that "racial considerations" were "too grave to be brushed aside for any sentimental reasons." Squiers notes, "The people who saw themselves as uniquely fit to exert control wanted to exert it."

The second half of Squiers' exhibition heads to Germany, where Galton's ideas fed a centuries-old notion of the purity and virtue of the German "Volk." In the aftermath of World War I, the Weimar Republic employed a number of German and Jewish eugenicists to create a genetic blueprint for rebuilding a devastated Germany. Copies of slides used in a lecture identify degenerates: "Three Idiots," "Paranoid Alcoholic" and a young woman labeled "Good-natured manic state." (Eugenics in the Weimar Republic and Nazi Germany: A Photographic Exhibit.)

One should also remember that the removal of the “unfit” from “civilized” nations was the chief goal of the nefarious Margaret Sanger and her Birth Control League.

A world that has thrown off the sweet yoke of the Social Reign of Christ the King as it must be exercised by Holy Mother Church must be enslaved by the adversary to the tyranny of sentimentality and the irrational compulsion to discard every cross that Our Divine Redeemer sends to men for their sanctification and salvation in the vain effort to live as “trouble-free” as possible. This diabolical tyranny leads men to think and act in utilitarian ways, up to and including killing off loved ones whose “quality of life” is said to be “threatened” by a chronic disability or terminal illness.

Many articles on this website have discussed the “legalization” of euthanizing disabled children in such “civilized countries” as The Netherlands, copying what was done in the Kingdom of Belgium in 2014, which last year expanded the killing of children after birth from the age of one year of age to any time thereafter if the child is said to suffer from some condition from which there is supposedly no hope of recovery:

The Netherlands is to widen its euthanasia regulations to include the possibility of doctors assisting in the death of terminally ill children aged between one and 12.

The new rules would apply to between five and 10 children a year who suffer unbearably from their disease, have no hope of improvement and for whom palliative care cannot bring relief, the government said on Friday.

“The end of life for this group is the only reasonable alternative to the child’s unbearable and hopeless suffering,” it said in a statement.

The Netherlands became the first country in the world to legalise euthanasia under strict conditions in 2002. All cases must be reported to medical review boards. The law already provided possibilities for euthanasia involving terminally ill babies until their first birthday and for children over 12.

Only one instance of euthanasia for a minor aged between 12 and 16 was reported in 2022, figures from regional review boards show.

The Netherlands will not be the first to allow doctors to assist in the death of children of all ages. Belgium has allowed it since 2014. (Netherlands to broaden euthanasia rules to cover children of all ages | Assisted dying.)

This is all the direct result of the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King wrought by the Protestant Revolution and the subsequent of rise of the anti-Incarnational, religiously indifferentist Judeo-Masonic civil state of Modernity. There can never be any lasting restraints against those who believe that suffering has purpose and that is thus “merciful” either to kill a child in his mother’s womb before birth and now to kill him at any time after birth for a whole variety of “quality of life” judgments by moral monsters who love to have the power of life and death of other human beings.

Although direct child euthanasia is not yet “legal” in the United States of America, the use of amniocentesis to diagnose possible physical abnormalities in preborn children has given many in the medical profession the pretext to urge parents to “terminate” their child’s life, which is why amniocentesis and ultrasound when used by pro-abortion medical practitioners can be turned into a “search and destroy” mission. It is all too frequently the case that false diagnoses are made to pressure women to kill their unborn baby and/or that efforts are made to paint draconian scenarios about the sort of life that a baby born with this or that condition would have if he was brought to birth.

This utilitarian anti-life ethos is feeding new attempts by pro-abortion groups to convince state legislatures to broaden already existing “exceptions” to the binding precepts of the Fifth Commandment in include an “exception” for physical “anomalies”:

Legislative attempts to include abortion exceptions for unborn babies with disabilities are beginning to crop up in pro-life states amid controversy surrounding a Texas woman who struggled to get an abortion after her baby was diagnosed with a genetic condition in the womb. 

The story of Kate Cox, a Texas mother of two, made national headlines in December when she was unable to obtain an abortion in her state after learning the baby she was carrying was diagnosed with what doctors said was a fatal genetic condition known as Trisomy 18 that occurs when there is an extra copy of the 18th chromosome, resulting in a range of potential abnormalities and difficulties. Doctors advised her that if she carried the baby to term, it could leave her infertile.

“Potential abnormalities and difficulties.” The only "abnormality" with which we msut concern ourselves is that caused by the vestigial after-effects of Original Sin and the way we have disfgured our souls by means of our many Actual Sins.

It is never permissible to kill an innocent being for any reason, no less to do so because of “potential abnormalities and “difficulties.”

Physicians, physician assistants and/or nurse practitioners who speak in these terms have no regard for the inviolability of innocent human life and they have no belief in the simple fact that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ never permits anyone to carry any cross for which He does send the graces through His Most Blessed Mother’s loving hands to endure with love, gratitude, and joy.

Rightly formed mothers and fathers know that they are to surround their children with love as they sacrifice for them in the pattern of the Divine Redeemer Himself and that to provide for the needs of a disabled child is a privilege, not a burden, for which they stand to receive an eternal reward if they persevere until death in a state of Sanctifying Grace as a member of the Catholic Church. It matters not that a woman might be rendered infertile or even if she might lose her life as the love of the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ teaches us to accept every cross as occurring within the Providence of God and, yes, to consider a joy to lay down our very life for others.

One never has a “choice” to dispense with innocent human life, and it is to the credit of those who understand this and who have given of themselves to children born wit Trisomy 13 or Trisomy 18 that there are plenty of examples to refute the frequently told lie of the “useless” of nature of the lives of children born with either condition:


Critics argue such bills would remove protections for babies with disabilities and allow children with fetal anomalies to be discriminated against and aborted even in late-term pregnancies. 

Beverly Jacobson, the mother of a 7-year-old girl with Trisomy 18 and Founder and President of Verity's Village, a nonprofit aimed at providing practical support for families who receive a life-limiting prenatal diagnosis for their babies, told Fox News Digital that oftentimes terms to describe fatal fetal anomalies, such as "incompatible with life," can be misleading. 

"My daughter Verity is nearly seven-years-old and there are hundreds - maybe even thousands - of babies, children, teens and adults in the United States like her who are living with Trisomy 18," she said. "These sons and daughters are in no way ‘incompatible with life’ as the medical community often labels them, and families and communities are stronger and better because of these children." 

"It's the unfortunate truth that many doctors push abortion to parents whose unborn children are diagnosed with a life-limiting condition," she added. "I hope lawmakers will do the compassionate thing by taking a stand for Verity and those like her who have Trisomy 18 or other disabilities so they will not be targeted to an even greater extent for painful, late-term abortion."

Kelsey Pritchard, the director of state public affairs at SBA Pro-Life America, told Fox News Digital that they feel for any mother who receives a difficult diagnosis for her unborn child, but criticized what she called the "abortion industry’s spin doctors" who "manipulate these stories to justify unlimited abortion and attack babies with disabilities."

"The abortion lobby is zealously trying to confuse the issue by conflating fetal anomaly diagnoses with life-threatening emergencies experienced by pregnant women," she said. "The truth is that most fetal anomaly conditions do not put mothers at greater risk, and in the instances when a woman is in danger, every pro-life law in the country allows doctors to act."

Dr. Tara Sander Lee, the vice president and director of life sciences at the Charlotte Lozier Institute, echoed this sentiment, arguing that many babies with a prenatal diagnosis die not because of their medical condition, but because of the "discrimination and denial of treatment from the medical establishment."

"Before birth, as many as 60% of babies diagnosed with trisomy 13 or 18 are aborted," she said. "When given the proper care, survival rates are much higher. A Japanese study shows that when babies with trisomy 18 received appropriate care and surgical interventions, 81.5% survived until discharge."

"Some babies with T13 or T18 who receive surgery to treat their heart problem have an even longer median survival of 15 and 16 years," she added. "Too often in America, we fail to accept every child as a gift, regardless of ability. The obvious truth is that abortion is not a cure or treatment for the child’s condition."

Nebraska Family Alliance Policy Director Nate Grasz said discriminating against people with disabilities is wrong and that "those with different abilities are worthy of life and should always receive proper medical care."

"The Nebraska Pro-Life Coalition urges lawmakers to take a stand for babies in the womb who are believed to have a life-limiting condition and their families," he said. "We urge senators to stop LB 1109 to protect these precious children – the most vulnerable among us – from abortion at the point when they can feel pain."

Jacobson detailed the experience she had when she received the Trisomy 18 diagnosis for her daughter in an interview with Fox News Digital. 

"I remember the doctor saying that I had an elevated risk for this baby I was carrying, to have a condition known as Trisomy 18 and I was floored," she said.

As a military wife and mother to eight children, when Jacobson found out she was pregnant, she said she was just trying to get her mind wrapped around the fact that she was going to have a ninth child when she got a phone call she said she would never forget. 

"I had never heard of this before... so I was trying to process this information," she added. "I kept pressing her [the doctor], ‘Well, what does this mean? What if our baby does have this?’ And I just remember it getting quiet on the other end of the phone, and then she said, ‘Well, if your baby does have this condition, most likely, most babies will pass in utero and, if they do make it to birth, they live maybe 5 to 15 days with pretty severe defects and difficulties.’" 

"We just immediately said, 'Okay, whatever happens, we really don't know what's going on, but we do know that we love this baby, whether there are complications or not, for us, abortion is simply not an option, and we just want information to know how we can be prepared," she said. "We made that pretty clear when we spoke to professionals, so we did not experience something that many families do."

But, Jacobson said conversations with two different professionals stuck out to her and while they didn't tell her she needed to abort her baby, they did tell her that "if she survives to birth, she will live a futile life." 

The first words out of one of her doctor's mouth at a consultation were: "So you're here to talk about your retarded daughter," which Beverly said left her stunned. 

"The head of the department at the university hospital opened the conversation talking about my unborn daughter in this manner and went on to say that if she were to survive, she would live a futile life," she said. "That's a direct quote, a futile life. Those words still ring, I can still hear that, my body still reacts, I have a visceral reaction when I think about that meeting with him." 

"He said that she would be a drain on the family mentally, emotionally and financially," she added. "None of that has come to pass. I didn't know that was coming. I wasn't prepared to have to advocate for my daughter in that moment, because I was just not expecting a medical professional to speak to me in those terms when I was there to get information about what our daughter might need if she were to be born alive, if she were to overcome the statistics."

After receiving the diagnosis, Beverly said that for the first 4 to 6 weeks she and her husband were "actually preparing to bury" their daughter.  

"We were making plans for what we would do for a memorial service, where we would take her little body, just conversations that you do not expect to be having as parents when you are expecting a little baby," she said. "My heart was crushed, I was dealing with depression, severe anxiety, and I had these other children to care for," but "about a month and a half after receiving the diagnosis, when we started to get connected with online support groups, and I began to see that actually there are some babies living, not just babies, children, even teenagers, even some young adults," living with Trisomy 18. 

Beverly said the medical professionals she spoke with continually made insinuations that she and her family would not have a quality of life if they chose to go to term with their disabled child.  

"I've known many people with disabilities and I can't imagine not having known them and having had their influence in my life and just their perspective," she said. "So as much as it was a fearful experience and alarming to think that I would have a child with significant needs, I began to have hope that we could meet her alive."

Beverly and her husband have since started Verity's Village, named after their daughter, which serves hundreds of families with children who have Trisomy 18 and other similar genetic conditions.

"Now that we have a nonprofit serving families in our position, we know we hear from almost all of them that abortion is presented as the logical next step once you get a diagnosis, I'm very grateful that was not brought up," she said.

"It's a sensitive topic. I understand that," Beverly said. "I know it's so controversial."

"Obviously she was born alive, we did get to bring her home from the hospital," she said. "In a sense, we were a success story because she lived and people didn't expect her to live, but really, bringing her home was the beginning of a journey."

"When we realized how difficult that journey was and I was in the community talking to families, my heart was drawn to these mamas that were given a diagnosis and they were so scared and so overwhelmed, hearing nothing but dire predictions of what would happen to their baby," she said. "Would they live, would they not live, I was stunned. I even heard of a mom who, her doctor scheduled her abortion before she even knew about the diagnosis."

"For me, the pregnancy part was so hard," she added. "I'm a planner, I like to know what's coming ahead of time and not knowing whether she would be born alive, what our family dynamics would look like if we brought her home, that was a very anxious time for me. So I found myself wanting to support these moms."

Beverly said that for those reasons, Verity's Village was born and has been operating for almost three years, helping moms understand that they have other options besides terminating their pregnancy. 

She also said she would like to see the term "incompatible with life" erased altogether and instead replaced with "life limiting diagnosis because there are some limitations for these children, these babies, and yes, it is true that many do pass away in utero," but "we certainly didn't expect to have almost seven years with her."

"Verity has given us so much," Beverly said. "She is non-verbal. She's non-ambulatory. She doesn't do for the family like my other kids can cook and clean and help… But you know what? She doesn't have to do a thing. She is her own self and brings us joy and delight and my kids love her fiercely."

"They are growing hearts of compassion, they're learning to serve others in a way that I don't know how we would have given them that opportunity, to put others before self, and to look for others' needs if they hadn't lived it day in and day out with their little sister." (Pro-life states consider abortion exceptions in cases of fatal fetal anomalies.)

No mother has any "choice" to be made between her own life and that of her preborn child. Although the improvements in medical technology have made it possible for expectant mothers with serious maladies to be treated in a manner that will permit a baby to be delivered at the point of viability, whereupon more aggressive treatment of a mother's condition can be undertaken, if possible and advised, it is still nevertheless the case that in those rare circumstances, which certainly do occur now and again, where a mother is faced with the possibility of sacrificing her own life so that her preborn baby can be born. A mother formed in the truths of the Catholic Faith knows that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ meant it when He said the following:

[12] This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you. [13] Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (John 15: 12)

A mother who knows the Catholic Faith understands that, as difficult as it can be to those steeped in emotionalism and sentimentality, she can, if she dies in a state of Sanctifying Grace, do more for her child from eternity than she ever could here on the face of this earth. Moreover, those who have died in a state of Sanctifying Grace are more perfectly united to us than they ever were on the face of this earth.

There is no mother who can ever guarantee that her child will never get sick, will never know pain, will never undergo emotional turmoil in the mortal vale of tears, will never get rejected by a friend, will never experience financial distress, will never be criticized. Suffering is part of the human condition as a result of Original Sin and our own Actual Sins, and we must recognize that suffering is meant to be redemptive if offered up to the suffering of the Divine Redeemer on the wood of the Holy Cross as we beg Our Lady to send us the graces necessary to accept the cross and to carry it well now and up to and including the hour of our death.

We must think supernaturally at all times. We must think as Catholics at all times no matter the natural pull of human emotions and heartstrings that will certainly affect each of us at various times. We are flesh and blood human beings. We would be heartless creatures if we were not torn in difficult circumstances of facing an earthly separation from our loved ones by means of what is considered to be an "early" death. We must love God's Holy Will first and foremost, praying to His Most Blessed Mother to send us graces to accept His will so that we can obey it as we observe every precept of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law.

Naturalists, of course, do not understand this, which is why almost all of those in public life who say that they are "pro-life" support the direct, intentional taking of innocent human lives in their mothers' wombs under any conditions at all. Such people cannot see the contradiction represented by claiming to be "pro-life" while supporting the direct killing of babies in some instances.

God's law is not a matter of feeling, something that Pope Pius XII pointed out in his November 26, 1951, Address to the Association of Large Families. Consider these very telling words from the early part of this address, begging your pardon that they are from a Google translation of the original text, which is in the Italian language:

If there is another danger that threatens the family, not since yesterday, but long ago, which, however, at present, is growing visibly, it can become fatal [to societies], that is, the attack and the disruption of the fruit of conjugal morality.

We have, in recent years, taken every opportunity to expose the one or the other essential point of the moral law, and more recently to indicate it as a whole, not only by refuting the errors that corrupt it, but also showing in a positive sense, the office the importance, the value for the happiness of the spouses, children and all family, for stability and the greater social good from their homes up to the State and the Church itself.

At the heart of this doctrine is that marriage is an institution at the service of life. In close connection with this principle, we, according to the constant teaching of the Church, have illustrated a argument that it is not only one of the essential foundations of conjugal morality, but also of social morality in general: namely, that the direct attack innocent human life, as a means to an end - in this case the order to save another life - is illegal.

Innocent human life, whatever his condition, is always inviolate from the first instance of its existence and it can never be attacked voluntarily. This is a fundamental right of human beings. A fundamental value is the Christian conception of life must be respected as valid for the life still hidden in the womb against direct abortion and against all innocent human life thereafter. There can be no direct murders of a child before, during and after childbirth. As established may be the legal distinction between these different stages of development life born or unborn, according to the moral law, all direct attacks on inviolable human life are serious and illegal.

This principle applies to the child's life, like that of mother's. Never, under any circumstances, has the Church has taught that the life of child must be preferred to that of the mother. It would be wrong to set the issue with this alternative: either the child's life or that of motherNo, nor the mother's life, nor that of her child, can be subjected to an act of direct suppression. For the one side and the other the need can be only one: to make every effort to save the life of both, mother and child (see Pious XI Encycl. Casti Connubii, 31 dec. 1930, Acta Ap. Sedis vol. 22, p.. 562-563).

It is one of the most beautiful and noble aspirations of medicine trying ever new ways to ensure both their lives. What if, despite all the advances of science, still remain, and will remain in the future, a doctor says that the mother is going to die unless here child is killed in violation of God's commandment: Thou shalt not kill!  We must strive until the last moment to help save the child and the mother without attacking either as we bow before the laws of nature and the dispositions of Divine Providence.

But - one may object - the mother's life, especially of a mother of a numerous family, is incomparably greater than a value that of an unborn child. The application of the theory of balance of values to the matter which now occupies us has already found acceptance in legal discussions. The answer to this nagging objection is not difficult. The inviolability of the life of an innocent person does not depend by its greater or lesser value. For over ten years, the Church has formally condemned the killing of the estimated life as "worthless', and who knows the antecedents that provoked such a sad condemnation, those who can ponder the dire consequences that would be reached, if you want to measure the inviolability of innocent life at its value, you must well appreciate the reasons that led to this arrangement.

Besides, who can judge with certainty which of the two lives is actually more valuable? Who knows which path will follow that child and at what heights it can achieve and arrive at during his life? We compare Here are two sizes, one of whom nothing is known. We would like to cite an example in this regard, which may already known to some of you, but that does not lose some of its evocative value.

It dates back to 1905. There lived a young woman of noble family and even more noble senses, but slender and delicate health. As a teenager, she had been sick with a small apical pleurisy, which appeared healed; when, however, after contracting a happy marriage, she felt a new life blossoming within her, she felt ill and soon there was a special physical pain that dismayed that the two skilled health professionals, who watched  her with loving care. That old scar of the pleurisy had been awakened and, in the view of the doctors, there was no time to lose to save this gentle lady from death. The concluded that it was necessary to proceed without delay to an abortion.

Even the groom agreed. The seriousness of the case was very painful. But when the obstetrician attending to the mother announced their resolution to proceed with an abortion, the mother, with firm emphasis, "Thank you for your pitiful tips, but I can not truncate the life of my child! I can not, I can not! I feel already throbbing in my breast, it has the right to live, it comes from God must know God and to love and enjoy it." The husband asked, begged, pleaded, and she remained inflexible, and calmly awaited the event.

The child was born regularly, but immediately after the health of the mother went downhill. The outbreak spread to the lungs and the decay became progressive. Two months later she went to extremes, and she saw her little girl growing very well one who had grown very healthy. The mother looked at her robust baby and saw his sweet smile, and then she quietly died.

Several years later there was in a religious institute a very young sister, totally dedicated to the care and education of children abandoned, and with eyes bent on charges with a tender motherly love. She loved the tiny sick children and as if she had given them life. She was the daughter of the sacrifice, which now with her big heart has spread much love among the children of the destitute. The heroism of the intrepid mother was not in vain! (See Andrea Majocchi. " Between burning scissors," 1940, p.. 21 et seq.). But we ask: Is Perhaps the Christian sense, indeed even purely human, vanished in this point of no longer being able to understand the sublime sacrifice of the mother and the visible action of divine Providence, which made quell'olocausto born such a great result? (Pope Pius XII, Address to Association of Large Families, November 26, 1951; I used Google Translate to translate this address from the Italian as it is found at AAS Documents, p. 855; you will have to scroll down to page 855, which takes some time, to find the address.)

So much for “exceptions.”  

No woman is “poorer” for having given birth to a child.

Indeed, the world has been poorer by the absence of hundreds of millions of children killed by contraceptives and the over one hundred million children who have been killed by surgical means globally in the past fifty-nine years.

We must lift our minds and hearts to Heaven as we embrace the Holy Cross, ever conscious of the price that Our Lord paid to redeem us thereon, a price that was shared by His Most Blessed Mother as she stood so valiantly under It. We do not not need hospice or end-life "counseling" sessions. We need the Holy Cross and Our Most Blessed Mother. Period!

Father Benedict Baur, O.S.B., explained how deeply we must always united ourselves to Our Lord's sufferings:

Christ and His members must be one. They must walk the same road, not only during the liturgical service, when they are lifted up together in the mysteries of the sacrifice, but also in every event of life. Christ welcomed suffering, and accepted it freely; He did not flee the hardships of life. He makes suffering in us, His members, serve the spirit; He uses it as a means of freeing us from the world and all that is temporal and thus raises us from things of his world to the thins that are eternal.

Now, during Passiontide, we must begin to live and treasure pain and suffering. In the cross, in suffering, in or crucifixion with Christ, we shall find salvation. For Him and with Him we should bear all the slight injustices committed against us. For Him we should suffer freely and willingly the unpleasant and disagreeable things that occur to us. But our faith is weak. We flee from from the cross instead of holding it dear, instead of loving it and welcoming it our as Savior did.  (Father Benedict Baur, O.S.B., The Light of the World, Volume I, B. Herder Book Company, 1954, p. 595.)

Father Leen made a similar point in the conclusion of Why The Cross?

Why God should have decreed that the obedience of His Son should be expressed through the awful sufferings of the Passion, when it might have been expressed in a ritual act involving no such pain, is a secret of His inscrutable designs. All we can now is that the sacrifice of Calvary was decreed out of a merciful regard for man.

St. Thomas, while not pretending to solve this great mystery of pain, shows how, practically, the dreadful sufferings of Christ on Calvary aid man to profit by the salvation that these sufferings have merited for him. He points out that, though from the very beginning of His conception Jesus merited the divine life of grace for men, yet their remained obstacles to their profiting to the grace so won for them. The Passion was directed toward the removal of those obstacles.

Calvary brings home to men in a vivid way the great gravity of sin and the terrible tribulation that awaits it. The Passion, bringing home to the imagination, as well as to the mind, the loathsomeness of sin and the chastisement that it merits, act as a powerful deterred from evil. Calvary, by its example, encourages that heroism which is often demanded of men if they are to prove faithful to God in times of great trial and temptation. Above all, it moves men to the love of God, Who, in surrendering Himself to death on their account, gives such a convincing proof of His love for them. Love is, in final account, the great force in life, for love alone can inspire that sacrifice which is the price of unwavering fidelity to the Lord.

Every Christian who proves himself faithful in his vocation will deduce form his own experience the wisdom of the divine decree. He will learn by practical experience that it is only through contemplating with faith the sufferings of the Man-God that he nerves himself to abide in obedience to the Lord in spite of the hardships that such obedience so frequently entails. In a world that is ever at with Christ and His ideals, there is a constant call for heroism if one is to persevere to the end in loyalty to God. The Cross, is for the Christian, the standard that rouses his courage to withstand bravely the assault of the consequences with Christ, risen from the dead, “to walk in newness of life.”

Christ has traced for the Christian the path he most follow if he is to achieve himself and conquer happiness.

The life of Christ on earth was a career of conquest, closing in on the magnificent triumph of entry into heaven on the day of the Ascension. The Christian who wishes to share in Christ’s victory must be prepared to take active part in Christ’s struggle. He must, in other words, display, in conflict with the adverse forces within and without himself, the moral and spiritual qualities of his Leader.

The great obstacles to final success in this welfare of the spirit are the concupiscence of the flesh, the concupiscence of the eyes, and the pride of life. If the Christian is to cleave his way to the peace that surpasseth all understanding, and the happiness which such peace gives, the concupsicences must be beaten down and reduced to a state of impotence. The poverty, chastity, and obedience of Christ are he weapons with which this result is achieved. These are the moral qualities of which Christ’s life was the sustained expression.

The Christian will catch a reflection of Christ’s noble distinction if he emulates Christ’s grand independence of men and things. His contempt for purely fictitious glory, and His utter disregard for any honor except that which comes of God’s approval bestowed on a man’s life and actions. He will capture something of Christ’s moral grandeur if, reproducing something of Christ’s chastity, he attains to that majesty of spirit over matter which leaves the will free to expand in the purest love for God and man. He will clothe himself with a measure of Christ’s serene sovereignty if, acquiring Christ’s humility, he brings his nature to its highest in harmonizing it completely with the mind and will of its Creator and Sovereign Lord. In this lies the achievement of perfect truth: through this the Christian attains the excellence that comes of the flawless realization of the divine ideal of manhood. Undeniably, all this involves bitter suffering for man’s fallen nature, but the follower of Christ must be ready to sacrifice with Him if he wishes ‘to be glorified with Him.’ (Father Edward Leen, S.J., Why the Cross?, originally published by Sheed & Ward in 1938, and republished in 2001 by Scepter Publishers, Princeton, New Jersey,  pp. 310-312.)

While death will come to us all at time that God has appointed for us from all eternity, we must be willing to suffer until the time of a true natural death, not one defined by the merchants of death, in a world of escapism that has rejected the necessity of redemptive suffering. We must be well-prepared to make a good death, which can occur at any time, of course, and to ready to make a good Confession of our sins to a true priest if God has granted us the grace to be conscious, alert and in full control of our rational ability to do so, something for which we must beg Our Lady every day. A lifetime of embracing suffering by uniting it to the Cross of the Divine Redeemer as a member of His true Church is the only path to prepare as adequately as possible for the fearful moment of the Particular Judgment that will be rendered to us by Christ the King, our Divine Judge.

Protestantism has created a Christianity without the Cross. Judeo-Masonry has created a world without Christianity. The end result must be slavery to the "professionals" in a world of unspeakable savagery.

Father Robert Mader offered words of great inspiration ninety-one years ago in the very country, Germany, where Bishop Clemens von Galen was to preach against the Hitlerian practices of eugenics, which involved the killing off of the feeble in body and in mind, most of which had originated during the Weimar Republic in the 1920s, that have become accepted as normal and nature in the "developed" world at this time, including here in the United States of America:

Following the destruction of Jerusalem, the Romans covered the places of hallowed memory to he Christian with rubble. The cave of the Holy Sepulchre was buried under such rubble, and over as well Golgotha pagan images and temples were erected in honor of Venus and Jupiter. For this reason the Christians did not go there anymore, in order not to be mistaken for idol-worshippers. Emperor Constantine ordered the temples and images torn down and the rubble carried away. After long and hard work the cave of the Holy Sepulchre was found. Not found away three crosses with nails were discovered, and along with them the superscription, which, however, lay separate from the cross.

Without doubt one of the these must be the Cross of the Savior, but there was no certain sign that would differentiate it from the crosses of the two thieves. This was given when a mortally il woman was suddenly cured by touching the true Cross. The Holy Cross was then encased in silver and precious gems, and a church was built over it, which according to Emperor Constantine's order was to be more magnificent than anything ever seen before. In memory of these events, the Church recalls the Finding of the Most Holy Cross on May 3, in order that on every day until the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross (September 14), land and people with be blessed with a splinter, a particle of the Cross.

We have every reason to remember these events. Christianity is the religion of the Crucified One. In his first letter to the Corinthians the Apostle of the Nations, St. Paul, declares: "For I judged not myself to know anything among you, but Jesus Christ, and him crucified (1 Cor. 2:2). St. Paul's preaching, no matter how many-sided it appears, always returns to the central Sun of Christendom: Jesus on the Cross, King of the World! Everything else is either a ray from this Sun, or it is nothing. In the Crucifix lies our entire dogmatic and moral theology, our entire teaching on faith and morals, our catechism. The Cross is our library. Every other book has value only inasmuch as the spirit of the Cross speaks in it.

Modernists have attempted to ban the old preaching of St. Paul, the Gospel of the Cross, to oblivion. The Cross means the teaching of the necessity of sacrifice and of grace, and this now lies under the rubble on which a new paganism has erected once again the pagan images and temples of Jupiter, Mercury, Venus and Bacchus--in other words, the absolutist state, capitalism, immorality, and addiction to pleasure. A certain superficial Christianity, which puts more value on being modern than on being Catholic and Biblical, and for which the imitation of the spirit of the times is more understandable than the imitation of Christ, has made itself a willing accomplice.

We have lost the Cross. We have a Christianity that no longer understands sacrifice and there is no Christianity or only a soulless version of Christianity. We need Constantines and Helens who will once again dig out the the Cross from under the rubble and make it their shrine and their sign, and who believe that the King's throne is the Cross.

The crucified King! In the family we must have a Finding of the the Most Holy Cross! The modern family has lost the crucifix, and in its place it has raised up the political hero, the artist, old pagan gods, nudity and the prostitute. The crucifix does not fit into the modern home. The modern living room preaches money-grabbing, pride, vanity, lasciviousness, laziness. The modern living room is the exaltation of the seven deadly sins. At least one is honest enough to feel the Cross no longer fits into this milieu and has got rid of it because in the long run the crucifix can only remain there where the spirit of the Crucified One remains, and the spirit of the Crucified is no longer there.

The spirit of the Crucified is the spirit of love and sacrifice, but the spirit of the modern family is the spirit of selfishness and enjoyment. The speech of the Crucified says: First the others, I come last! The speech of selfishness is: First I, then again I, the others come last! The Christian family is built on the notion of sacrifice and devotion. The concept of the Christian father is: Work from morning to evening for others. The concept of the Christian mother is: Care for others! Let the self always come last! The concept of the Christian child is: Respect, love, obedience. Father and mother first, only then I!

The notion of sacrifice is dying out in the modern family. The modern family is built upon the law of egotism. The modern family takes as its motto: "As much enjoyment and as little sacrifice as possible!" This is the source of Malthusianism. That is where characterless education comes from. And that is the doom of the family. Only the Cross and its sermon of self-discipline, self-denial and devotion can save the dying family. (Father Robert Mader, Cross and the Crown, edited and translated by Dr. Eileen Kunze, Sarto House, 1999, pp. 117-119.)

The myth of “brain death” and the practices of the modern "palliative care" industry are founded upon a rejection of the Holy Cross. So is most of modern medicine, especially for the chronically or terminally ill. We must embrace the Holy Cross of the Divine Redeemer, Christ the King, not flee from It, the very instrument of our salvation.

The only thing that must matter to us to remain faithful until we die and to be ready to suffer all, including actual martyrdom. Nothing we lose in this world, including our very lives at the hands of the evil men and women and mutants who make up the fascistic administration of the corrupt, physically decrepit, morally sick, and intellectually dishonest statist named Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., that is intent on crushing all opposition, matters if we persevere until the end in a state of Sanctifying Grace as members of the true Church, the Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order. Without Our Lady’s graces, though, we will be lost, which is why we had better be quite intent on praying her Most Holy Rosary daily.

In all the difficulties of these times, though, we must remember that we have nothing to fear as the graces won for us by the shedding of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces, will be ever sufficient for us to carry whatever crosses in whatever circumstances of whatever time God has from all eternity appointed them to live and to work out their salvation in fear and in trembling.

The following prayers, found in The Raccolta, should fill us with peace in the midst of the difficult times in which we live:

Lord Jesus Christ, who didst say unto Thine Apostles: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I gve unto you,” regard not our sins but Thy merits, and grant unto Thy servants, that they whom the Almighty Father hath created and governeth, and whom Thou hast ordained unto everlasting life, may love one another with all their hearts for Thy sake, and may be made one in spirit and rejoice in Thy perpetual peace. Lord Jesus Christ, concerning whom the Prophet hath said: “And all kings of the earth shall adore Him, all nations shall serve Him,” extend thy reign upon the whole human race. Send upon all men the light of Thy faith, deliver them from all the snares and bonds of passion, and direct them to heavenly things; and graciously grant, that the states and nations may be united by means of Thine immaculate Bride, Holy Church, and through the intercession of the blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace, may serve Thee in all humility; and that all tongues and peoples may form one great choir, to praise Thee both day and night, to bless Thee, to exalt Thee, O King of the nations and the Ruler thereof, O Prince of prince immortal King of ages. Amen. (The Raccolta: A Manual of Indulgences, Prayers and Devotions Enriched with Indulgences, approved by Pope Pius XII, May 30, 1951, and published in English by Benziger Brothers, New York, 1957, Number 703, pp. 558-559.)

O God, who art the author and lover of peace, in knowledge of whom is eternal life, whose service is a kingly state; defend us Thy humble servants from all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely trusting in Thy defense, may not fear the power of any adversaries. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen. (The Raccolta: A Manual of Indulgences, Prayers and Devotions Enriched with Indulgences, approved by Pope Pius XII, May 30, 1951, and published in English by Benziger Brothers, New York, 1957, Number 703, pp. 559-560.)

O merciful Queen of the Rosary of Pompeii, thou, the Seat of Wisdom, hast established a throne of fresh mercy in the land that once was pagan, in order to draw all nations to salvation by means of the chaplet of thy mystic roses: remember thy divine Son hath left us this saying: “Other sheep I have that are not of this fold; them also must I bring, and they shall hear  voice; and there shall be one fold, and one Shepherd.” Remember likewise that on Calvary thou didst become our Co-Redemptrix, by virtue of the crucifixion of Thy heart cooperating with Thy Crucified Son in the salvation of the world; and from that day thou didst become the Restorer of the human race, the Refuge of sinners, and the Mother of all mankind. Behold, dear Mother, how man souls are lost every hour! Behold, how countless millions of those who dwell in India, in China, and in barbarous regions do not yet know our Lord Jesus Christ! See, too, how many others are indeed Christians and are nevertheless far from the bosom of Mother Church which is Catholic, Apostolic and Roman! O Mary, powerful mediator, advocate of the human race, full of love for us who are mortal, the life of our hearts, blessed Virgin of the Rosary of Pompeii, where thou dost nothing else save dispense heaven’s favors upon the afflicted, grant that a ray of thy heavenly light may shine forth to enlighten those many blinded understanding and to enkindle so cold hearts. Intercede with thy Son and obtain grace for all the pagans, Jews, heretics and schismatics in the whole world to receive supernatural light and to enter with joy into the bosom of the true Church. Hear the confident prayer of the Supreme Pontiff [of Holy Church in these times of papal vacancy], that all nations may be joined in the one faith, may know and love Jesus Christ, the blessed fruit of thy womb, who liveth and reigneth with the Father and the Holy Spirit world without end. And then all men shall love thee also, thou who art the salvation of the world, arbiter and dispenser of the treasures of God, and Queen of mercy in the valley of Pompeii. And glorifying thee, the Queen of Victories, who by means of thy Rosary, dost trample upon all heresies, they shall acknowledge that thou givest life to all the nations, since there must be a fulfillment of the prophecy in the Gospel: “All generations shall call me blessed.” ((The Raccolta: A Manual of Indulgences, Prayers and Devotions Enriched with Indulgences, approved by Pope Pius XII, May 30, 1951, and published in English by Benziger Brothers, New York, 1957, Number 628, pp. 501-503.)

There is a whole lot of good, solid Catholic theology in the prayer just above.

Our Lady is the Co-Redemptrix of the human race.

Our Lady is the Seat of Wisdom.

Our Lady is our Refuge of Sinners.

Our Lady is the Treasurer of all the graces won for us by her Divine Son on the wood of the Holy Cross.

Our Lady is also our Immaculate Queen to whose Immaculate Heart has been entrusted the cause of world peace and the restoration of all things in her Divine Son, Christ the King, something that Pope Pius XII noted in his prayer consecrating the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, she who is the Queen of Heaven and Earth:

Queen of the most holy Rosary, help of Christians, refuge of the human race, victorious in all the battles of God, we prostrate ourselves in supplication before thy throne, in the sure hope of obtaining mercy and of receiving grace and timely aid in our present calamities, not through any merits of our own on which we do not rely, but only through the immense goodness of thy mother’s Heart. In Thee and in thy Immaculate Heart, at this grave hour of human history, do we put our trust; to thee we consecrate ourselves, not only with all of Holy Church, which is the mystical body of thy Son Jesus, and which is suffering in so many of her members, being persecuted, but also with the whole world, torn by discords, agitated with the hatred, the victim of its own iniquities. Be thou moved by the sight of such material and moral degradation, such sorrows, such anguish, so many tormented souls in danger of eternal loss! Do thou, O Mother of mercy, obtain for us from God a Christ-like reconciliation of the nations, as well as those graces which can convert the souls of men in an instant, those graces which prepare the way and make certain the long desired coming of peace on earth. O Queen of peace, pray for us, and grant unto the world in the truth, the justice, and the charity of Christ. Above all, give us peace in our hearts, so that the kingdom of God, may spread it the tranquility of order. Accord thy protection to unbelievers and to all those who lie in the shadow of death; cause the Sun of Truth to rise upon them; may they enabled to join with us in repeating before the Saviour of the world: “Glory to God in the highest, and peace to men of good will.” Give peace to the nations that are separated us from error or discord, and in a special manner to those peoples who profess a singular devotion toward thee; bring them back to Christ’s one fold, under the one true Shepherd. Obtain full freedom for the holy Church of God; defend her from her enemies; check the ever-increasing torrent of immorality; arouse in the faithful a practical love of purity, a practical Christian life, and an apostolic zeal, so that the number of those who serve God may increase in merit and in number. Finally, even as the Church and all mankind were once consecrated to the Heart of thy Son Jesus, because He was for all those who put their hope in Him an inexhaustible source of victory and salvation, so in like manner do we consecrate ourselves forever to thee also and to thy Immaculate Heart, Of Mother us and Queen of the world; may thy love and patronage hasten the day when the kingdom of God shall be victorious and all the nations, at peace with God and with one another, shall call thee blessed and intone with thee, from the rising of the sun to its going down, the everlasting “Magnificat” of glory, of love, of gratitude to the Heart of Jesus in which we alone can find truth, life, and peace. (Pope Pius XII, Rescript from the Secretariat of State, November 17, 1942, document exhibited, November 19, 1942, The Raccolta: A Manual of Indulgences, Prayers and Devotions Enriched with Indulgences, approved by Pope Pius XII, May 30, 1951, and published in English by Benziger Brothers, New York, 1957, pp. 345-347.)

The restoration of all things in Christ will occur as a result of the fulfillment of her Fatima Message after the restoration of a true pope on the Throne of Saint Peter, which will occur miraculously at a time of God’s choosing. All we have to do is persist in our prayers as we maintain a joy-filled hope that we might, by virtue of the graces Our Lady sends to us, be able to plant a few seeds for the restoration of all things in Christ the King as a result of the Triumph of her own Immaculate Heart. To this end, especially in this penitential season of Lent, we pray as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits.
