Dear Advocates for Life,
Bishop Vasa - Look Forward and Upward is a wonderful question and answer article to lift our hearts to the Lord. I wanted to pass it on just in case you hadn't seen this.)
Remember, he's leaving on March 4th. Men, be at Pendleton's the 2011 Northwest Catholic Men's Conference with Cardinal Raymond Burke and the dear Bishop on his last free weekend. It won't happen again in Oregon.
Available - "Justice in Pieces" presentations by Stephanie Block from New Mexico and a member of the Catholic Media Coalition. She is the editor of Los Pequenos de Cristo and an expert on the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. In Bend, we met with Bishop Vasa and she explained to him about the anti-Catholic "community organizing" who uses the Catholic church against Her teachings.
If you would like a CD of the "Justice in Pieces" presentation by Stephanie Block, please let me know. There is a handout (which was the power point presentation) for you to follow along.
There are eight Respect Life notebooks filled with information on how to get a pro-life group started. They were first purchased from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles but from the 1980's so they're safe and not about the seamless garment trap that doesn't prioritize the unborn. I'll be happy to send them to you as a gift. They are in three ring binders and easy to use.
We pray to Santa Rosa (Saint Rose of Lima) for the protection, strength, courage and faith for a most beloved bishop.
"If only mortals would learn how great it is to possess divine grace, how beautiful, how noble, how precious. How many riches it hides within itself, how many joys and delights! No one would complain about his cross or about troubles that may happen to him, if he would come to know the scales on which they are weighed when they are distributed to men." Santa Rosa
