We are Knights of Columbus, we stick up for the teaching of the Church

Jennifer Fulwiler is a Irish Catholic taught to be an atheist as a child. Her only sacrament was her baptism. But after I posted the last "third rail" video on this blog, I thought I had to post this other one- because anti-contraception, pro-life conversion is a part of her conversion story. Once again, watch this to the end for it to make sense.

Hard to watch

But I'm daring to post it on the Knights blog, because we NEED to understand this. Please view this video to the end, and share this post with anybody you feel needs it. The subject is homosexuality and Catholic Teaching. At St. Clare's, we've been inclusive of homosexuals coming to our parish, but I've had a hard time recruiting male homosexuals to be Knights. But like with special needs individuals, I can think of few people who need the Knights more- for we are fraternal, brothers, encouraging each other in chastity- including support of traditional marriage. A way to be more Catholic.

The Word Made Flesh for April 18-19, 2015
Jeremiah in chapter one of his prophecy, was told that God knew him before he was formed in his mother's womb. It is said that the eyes are the window to the soul. For our little girl destined to share her birthday with Our Lord, her heart has started beating, her life is detectable with ultrasound, at as early as the 21st day. The eyes, the window to her soul, are developing, as are her ears, which will listen to the Word of Our Lord.

Visiting Christ In the Womb & The Word Made Flesh 2015

April 13 Bulletin
The Word was made Flesh . . . Following Baby Jesus in the womb
Day 17 – 20 The tiny heart and blood vessels begin to form. The foundations of the brain, spinal cord, and nervous system are laid. The new life soon develops its own blood cells. The placenta is a part of both the new life and the mother.

The Word Made Flesh
In Matthew Chapter 1, we get The Genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, placing him firmly not as Divine, but also into the human family. Our young lady that we are following in the womb is also becoming a part of this human family, taking her place in what the Jews call the soul parade. Her heart and nervous system are starting to form; the placenta grows, and she is developing her own distinct blood type. Back in the Gospel of Matthew, we have the curious passage that Mary is betrothed, but also already married; for Joseph contemplates the possibility of a divorce. This "Marriage in two Parts" started with the erusin, the formal asking of a hand in marriage, which is translated as betrothed in our scriptures. A contract was drawn up and signed by the groom, the bride's father, and the bride. The breaking of such an engagement was as serious as a divorce is to us today, even though the bride and groom aren't living together yet. It was during this time, between the erusin and the formal nissuin ceremony, that Christ was conceived. Back in the 21st century, our mother of a young daughter is finally having the hormonal changes by which pregnancy can be detected.
