Archbishop Chaput’s Statement Regarding Fire at Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris

STATEMENT OF ARCHBISHOP CHARLES J. CHAPUT, O.F.M. CAP.  REGARDING FIRE AT CATHEDRAL OF NOTRE-DAME DE PARIS

 

“Throughout the day, I’ve monitored news reports regarding the fire overwhelming the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris with deep sadness and shock. For over 800 years, Notre-Dame has been one of the most iconic churches in Christendom—a testament to man’s desire to glorify God on earth and a beacon of hope for millions of pilgrims each year. The ongoing destruction being wrought by flames is doubly sorrowful as it comes during the holiest week of the Christian calendar.

I ask the clergy, religious, and lay faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to join me in prayer to the Blessed Mother for the protection of fire personnel and first responders in Paris working to battle the blaze and provide for the safety of the community. We also pray that our Lord will bring comfort and peace to Archbishop Michael Aupetit as well as our brothers and sisters in the Archdiocese of Paris, and the people of France at this time. In the face of desolation and devastation, we find hope in the Resurrection.”

+Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap.
Archbishop of Philadelphia

Archbishop Chaput’s Column: Why House Bill 800 Matters

In his most recent column Archbishop Chaput writes, “The point is this: Proper funding for public schools is clearly important. But experience has already shown that this can’t be the only strategy because it doesn’t work for many of the students who most urgently need a good education. It’s therefore vital that our elected officials serve the education needs of the poor by also supporting school choice.

In recent years, thanks in large measure to bipartisan efforts spearheaded by Speaker of the House Mike Turzai, the Commonwealth’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs have made tens of millions of dollars available for school choice in education.  These special programs account for barely half of 1 percent of Pennsylvania’s total state and local spending on public education, but they’ve made a massive difference in the lives of tens of thousands of families.”

A Personal Note from Tim Wildmon - AFA President

AFA endorses pro-life movie “Unplanned”

Unplanned is the inspiring true story of one woman’s journey of transformation. AFA has screened Unplanned and strongly encourages you to go see this movie. You can watch the preview here.

All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the nation, she was involved in upwards of 22,000 abortions and counseled countless women about their reproductive choices. Her passion surrounding a woman’s right to choose even led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in.

Until the day she saw something that changed everything, a baby fighting for its life. This led Abby Johnson to join her former enemies at 40 Days For Life and become one of the most ardent pro-life speakers in America.

Read AFA’s powerful review of Unplanned, written by AFA Journal’s Anne Reed. Anne’s article appears in AFA’s online blog, The Stand.

It is one of the most powerful films I’ve ever seen and especially having to do with the pro-life issue. Abby was a woman who was deeply involved in Planned Parenthood until God showed her the truth about this evil organization. She left Planned Parenthood and now speaks out on behalf of life. It’s a great story that I’m glad to recommend to you.

Unplanned opens in theaters everywhere March 29.

To be shown at: AMC theatre at Neshaminy Mall on March 29, 2019.

To find a theater near you or to learn more, visit www.unplannedtickets.com. Because of the content and nature of the abortion industry, the MPAA has rated this move “R” and is not suitable for younger viewers. Scenes that expose the truth about abortion are difficult to watch, both the procedure itself and the bloody “normal recovery” for a woman who uses the RU486 abortion pill. Parents are advised to see it first and consider watching and discussing it with older children.

Thank you,

Tim Wildmon, President
American Family Association

Come See our Saint Frances Cabrini Parish Talent! 

Ten very entertaining acts will be on the program, performers of all ages, and a variety of talents (several vocalists, two instrumental numbers, two dance numbers, and a comedy routine).

Participants will be trying to raise the most money with their performance and you get to vote for them with cash! We will also be having refreshments, basket raffles, and all kinds of fun. Admission is free! So please be sure to tell your friends to join us for a time of great fun.

And finally, we have a $1,000.00 Grand Prize ready to award to the act that receives the most votes. And to top it all off, Sarah Hughes, recently crowned Miss Bucks County 2019, will serve as our Master of Ceremonies.

You don’t want to miss it!

Born-Alive Legislation Deserves a Vote in the People’s House

Defenders of abortion will not bring the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to a vote in the US House of Representatives. This is deeply unfair.

There is one way to break the blockade.

We need your help to urge your Representative to sign a petition, beginning on April 2nd, that would allow this vote to occur.

We are saddened and shocked by state legislatures proposing and even passing laws to expand abortion AND to repeal laws providing specific protections for babies who live through an attempted abortion.

The Born-Alive Act would provide specific protections nationwide to help prevent newborns from being killed or left alone to die.

The Senate failed to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, but that is not the end of the story. This bill, rooted in our most fundamental human values, is worth fighting for.

Babies who survive abortion must no longer be killed or left to die. Help us push Congress to take a vote on and pass the Born-Alive Act.
