By Saint Gabriels Newsroom / August 11, 2012 A recently published article by a team of medical ethicists at Oxford University argues for the right of parents to abort newborn babies because they are “morally irrelevant.”  They argue this on the basis of the premise that ending the lives of newborn babies is no different than abortion.

Our Lady of Akita and the Mass

By Saint Gabriels Newsroom / July 9, 2012

This past year I have had the opportunity to read many books on Marian Apparitions, from the Middle ages, to the more recent in the late 70’s. These fascinating occurences have leaded me to a deeper understanding of Marys role in the Church, and in our lives.  The recurring message or theme I have found throughout many of the messages were of repentance, warnings of chastisement, and a return to personal holiness.  Most of the visitations of our Mother, were during times of upheavel, times when morality among people was lacking, and during times when the breakdown of common worship of God in our society.  Many people traded morality for their own depravities, and what they “feel” is right. Most of these situations involved warnings, and simple ways to correct our errors, so that God’s wrath may be averted. The call back to holiness was strongly emphasized and this should extend from the context of the Mass. I truly believe that there is a strong connection between the Mass and the various Marian apparitions. I will focus however on Our Lady of Akita because it is recent and is closely related to Our Lady of Fatima.
