View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Abortion and the demonic

I heard about this article in The Bulletin (Philadelphia) on EWTN yesterday, and someone at last night's pro-life meeting had a copy of it.

In it, Father Thomas Euteneuer, president of Human Life International - and an exorcist - spoke bluntly about abortion.

“Abortion is a demonic industry.”

“Abortion is blood sacrifice of innocent blood to the devil. The clinics are like temples, the doctors are like priests, the medical table is like their altar. It’s a ritualized sacrifice. They have a dogma called choice, a hierarchy called Planned Parenthood, and guardian angels in the form of police guards that will arrest you if you try to stop them.”

He said that there have been abortionists who have called abortion “their sacrament.”

“Abortion is a spiritual evil,” he said. “If we are to beat it, we can’t just fight it in the political realm. It derives its power from below. To confront a force this strong, you need a massive amount of prayer. That’s why I like the 40 Days For Life group, because they bring us what we need where we need it.”

Strong stuff. maybe the kind of stuff to shake people out of their complacency and get them stirred up.

Check out the full article.
