Alabama Supreme Court Gives Legal Recognition To The Unborn Child - And Other Happenings

My gosh, I miss blogging. My life went off on a tangent and took me away to other things. Here is just a smidgen of important happenings.

Alabama Supreme Court gives legal recognition to the unborn child
"This decision makes Alabama the tenth state to specifically permit wrongful-death actions pre-viability. This is a huge victory not only for April Mack, but also for the legal recognition of the unborn child, because this case recognizes the personhood of the unborn child under civil law."

150 women religious in the Boston Archdioces celebrate Jubilee year of entrance and profession, marking anniversaries of 25, 50, 60, 65, 70, and 75 years
This is akin to married couples celebrating those anniversaries.  May God bless these religious.

The Melkite Greek Catholic Church celebrated the Universal Exaltation of the Precious and Life-Giving Cross (once there, scroll down for description)
"The Cross, which was a tree of death, was transformed into The Holy Cross, which is the Tree of Life."

Protestant Life Chain founder begs pastors to denounce contraception
How refreshing to have some non-Catholics tout Catholic teaching.

More agreement from non-Catholics about the deception of contraception

- The Sexual Revolution Comes of Age in the Church
- Population Explosion or an Emerging Birth Dearth: The Facts
- Abortifacient Birth Controls: The Leading Killer of Human Beings in America and the World
- Our hypocrisy is screaming at us
- For the Christian Home to Consider & more

Spawned by someone challenging the Church's stand on reserving priestly ordination to men alone, I read the then Cardinal Ratzinger's letter about the role of men and women in the Church.  It's on the shorter side for one of these letters and is worth reading - and proclaiming!

17 Loaves of Banana Bread

On a personal note, I baked 17 loaves of banana bread at St. Benedict Abbey recently. 
It was one of my smaller batches, since I often bake 20 and more at a time.  :-)
