VIDEO contrasts participants in March for Life and Women’s March

LifeSite posted this fascinating, predictable, video.   But an image is worth a thousand words.

Listening to the view of the other side in this video is like witnessing the autopsy of long dead cadaver in really bad shape.

You can tell that this was once a living, breathing member of the same race, but… oh my.

These people are locked into serious delusion, probably also spurred by the sorts of demons which attach because of certain kinds of sins.

I have an idea.

Perhaps a bishop out there would take it upon himself to celebrated Holy Mass in the traditional rite, specifically in reparation for the ills which these poor people advance through their actions and inactions. At the same time, we need to beg for forgiveness for our own part in this national tragedy. We can sin by both commission and omission.

Penance.

And GO TO CONFESSION.

Think about how personal sins tear at the whole fabric of humanity. We are in this together.

    Thank you for posting this Padre . . . was able to go to Confession yesterday thanks to our pastor – who does his best to make himself available directly following the celebration of our morning weekday Masses, should anyone have the desire to go to Confession.
    Many good solid points in your post: We often forget the action of the demons, not only in our own individual lives but particularly where abortion is concerned ; and personal holiness will always be our most effective initial response to these things.

    Looking at the video, it’s difficult to believe these two groups of people are actually in the same city – let alone the same country. “Contrast” sure is an appropriate descriptor for the video’s title.
    “Serious delusion” is in harmony with the anticipatory tone which Venerable Fulton Sheen’s video Confession envisions the consequences of sins which are denied and remain both bottled up and unconfessed.
    A snippet (from roughly the 10:16 mark of Bishop Sheen’s video):
    “Just think my dear ladies of how many mentally disturbed women we are going to have in the United States in the next 10 or 15 years when the guilt of abortion begins to attack the mind and soul.”

    While viewing the video, and after getting over the amazement factor, I was overcome by a feeling of deep compassion for those in the misguided camp. So I’ll be praying for these “poor people” at Mass this morning. I would so hate to be in their position. What a blessing it is to be able to receive the sacrament of Reconciliation.
    Dear Jesus : Please help me get the “. . . and amend my life. AMEN”, part of this right.

    There is no doubt in my mind that these sad women are afflicted by demons.

    These poor people are M-A-D.
    When we pander to Madness, we will become Mad.
    In a world gone Mad, the sane will appear abnormal.
    Madness is different than insanity, because it is temporary. Yet it can infect a group or entire society by reinforced association.
    Northern Europe went Mad in the Reformation. England in the 1650s, France in the 1790s, Russia, Spain, Germany, Italy in the 1920s and 30s. Now ALL of western civilization has gone Mad.
    In our pity for the Mad, we do them no good by becoming Mad ourselves. By refusing to become one of them, and by our love, we cure their Madness. [I think that is somewhere in The Great Divorce].

    Here is a pro-life homily that we should hear often (this video was sent to me — I have personally NEVER heard a homily Like this.)

    That video is a stark contrast. Gertrude Himmelfarb wrote about this in general in “One Nation, Two Cultures.” Himmelfarb takes a look at the “vices of levity” culture which originated mostly in the 20th century, and the original “republican virtue” culture. These two cultures have members from all backgrounds.
