#Catholic Quote to SHARE "I beg of you to beware of thinking of the Rosary as something of little importance..." by St. Louis de Montfort


"I beg of you to beware of thinking of the Rosary as something of little importance – as do ignorant people and even several great but proud scholars. Far from being insignificant, the Rosary is a priceless treasure which is inspired by God."

New Video Shows Evidence that Live Babies are Killed for Organs with Scissors at Planned Parenthood

Operation Rescue calls on police to conduct murder investigations of Planned Parenthood for Gosnell-like killings of babies born alive during abortions


San Jose, CA -- In today's video installment from the Center for Medical Progress, Holly O'Donnell struggles to tamp down her emotions as she recalls her worst experience at Planned Parenthood while working as a procurement technician for StemExpress.
O'Donnell recounts a day at the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in San Jose, California, that will forever haunt her memories.
O'Donnell was training with another StemExpress employee identified only as "Jessica" when a baby boy was delivered intact. The baby had been selected for organ harvesting.
O'Donnell remembers the incident clearly:
So then I hear her call my name. 'Hey, Holly! Come over here. I want you to see something kinda cool. It's kinda neat!' So I'm over here and - the moment I see it I'm just flabbergasted. . .
And she's like, "Okay, I want to show you something." So she has one of her instruments and she just taps the heart and it starts beating. And I'm sitting here, and I'm looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating and I don't know what to think. . .
It had a face. It wasn't completely torn up. And its nose was very pronounced. It had eyelids and its mouth was pronounced. And then, since the fetus was so intact, [Jessica] said, "Okay, this is a really good fetus and it looks like we can procure a lot from it. We're going to procure a brain."
O'Donnell then describes how Jessica began the harvesting process by cutting through the lower jaw and into the face with scissors, then instructed O'Donnell to finish cutting through the face so she could extract the brain.
"I'm thinking, 'No, I don't want to do this,'" O'Donnell recalls.
"It's hard to imagine how anyone could even give such an order and what kind of callous and depraved subculture must exist at Planned Parenthood that this kind of horrific atrocity could be remotely considered 'cool' or 'neat,'" said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Board member for the Center for Medical Policy. "Kermit Gosnell is serving life in prison for cutting the backs of babies' necks with scissors. Now, at Planned Parenthood, live babies are murdered using scissors to harvest brains for 'research' - as if the 'research' part makes it all okay. Well, it doesn't. Jessica and the rest of the abortion crew at Planned Parenthood should be in a prison cell right next to Gosnell!"
The CMP video shows incriminating clips of Planned Parenthood and procurement company officials telling of intact, sometimes live births and the illegal altering of abortion procedures for the purpose of organ harvesting.
"Today's video is evidence that babies are being born alive during abortions at Planned Parenthood and then intentionally killed for their organs. This is no less than cold-hearted, premeditated murder," said Newman. "Furthermore, there is evidence that Planned Parenthood abortionists alter procedures to ensure the organs can be harvested. This is also a crime. We call on authorities in San Jose, Houston, and everywhere else that Planned Parenthood is selling baby parts to immediately open murder investigations and swiftly bring those involved in killing born-alive babies to justice."
Meanwhile, Holly O'Donnell left us with one final thought.
"It just really hard knowing that you're the only person who's ever going to hold that baby. . . I think that it's a wasted life, and it's sad that so many people view it as a mistake," O'Donnell said. "You know, 'cuz it's not. I mean, life isn't a mistake. Getting pregnant - it can be an accident, but it's not a mistake." Shared from Operation Rescue

Feast of Saint Bartholomew, Apostle
Lectionary: 629


Reading 1RV 21:9B-14

The angel spoke to me, saying,
“Come here.
I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”
He took me in spirit to a great, high mountain
and showed me the holy city Jerusalem
coming down out of heaven from God.
It gleamed with the splendor of God.
Its radiance was like that of a precious stone,
like jasper, clear as crystal.
It had a massive, high wall,
with twelve gates where twelve angels were stationed
and on which names were inscribed,
the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.
There were three gates facing east,
three north, three south, and three west.
The wall of the city had twelve courses of stones as its foundation,
on which were inscribed the twelve names
of the twelve Apostles of the Lamb.

GospelJN 1:45-51

Philip found Nathanael and told him,
“We have found the one about whom Moses wrote in the law,
and also the prophets, Jesus son of Joseph, from Nazareth.”
But Nathanael said to him,
“Can anything good come from Nazareth?”
Philip said to him, “Come and see.”
Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him,
“Here is a true child of Israel.
There is no duplicity in him.”
Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?”
Jesus answered and said to him,
“Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree.”
Nathanael answered him,
“Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel.”
Jesus answered and said to him,
“Do you believe
because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree?
You will see greater things than this.”
And he said to him, “Amen, amen, I say to you,
you will see heaven opened and the angels of God
ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”
