The following comes from a Jan. 29 email.
I’m writing with a news tip that may be of interest to you.
Over 20 pro-family groups launched a worldwide appeal to Pope Francis to defend marriage and family at the upcoming Synod in Rome.
You will find more information here.
A list of some 100 VIPs have signed the petition — including Cardinals, Bishops, priests, a King and prominent civil leaders.
God bless you and your fine reporting.
Sincerely in Christ,
TFP Student Action Director
I signed it and sent it to all on my email list.
This petition is critically important.
Please SIGN and send a link to every Catholic who truly loves the Catholic Church.
Sacrilege, Heresy, promotion of sinful lifestyels, and scandal within the Church has got to stop !
It is not PASTORAL, or MERCIFUL, or CHARITABLE to affirm or condone the actions of those who chose to live in the state of Mortal Sin.
St Paul – 1 Cor 11:27-30,
CCC: ” 81 Sacred Scripture is the speech of God as it is put down in writing under the breath of the Holy Spirit.
And [Holy] Tradition transmits in its ENTIRETY the Word of God which has been entrusted to the apostles by Christ the Lord and the Holy Spirit.
It transmits it to the successors of the apostles so that, enlightened by the Spirit of truth, they may faithfully preserve, expound and spread it abroad by their preaching. “

Thanks MIKE. This is very encouraging when Christ’s children unite and become doers of the word. Awesome news and I praise Jesus that people do take action while remaining faithful to the Magesterium, it is because of that faithfulness that truly is representative of being holy and fighting the good fight. Praise Jesus for giving us the blessing to unite and fight the good fight, this is His church and our actions here demonstrate that we honor His church and His call for us to carry our cross and walk with Him. . We are the Church, we belong to Jesus.
Agreed, all should sign.
Rick Santorum was attacked like no other candidate in the 2012 election, including by the Administration’s Tax Subsidized Bio-Terrorist – Dan ‘The Savage Lickspittle’ and a truly “Frothy Mix” of Gaystapo mau mau artistes and well funded Paulbots.
Still – it was the lamesteam media who campaigned the hardest to bias the process, and the way the RINO$ let the ‘debates’ turn in to ObamAcorn Circus was a shame to the entire party – and a terrible harm to the “Stupid American Voters”…
Who are not really stupid – but are treated as Mushrooms = Kept in the Dark and Fed the excreta of ‘our’ bought and paid for free press.
One fine local example of the Trash Santorum Scam was our German ‘pay-pal’ player Peter Their, who was mostly kept censored save the single story in the Chronicle about his $plashing Money to Soil the Un-Good:
S.F. billionaire quietly funds Ron Paul super PAC
“… Paul’s benefactor, San Francisco entrepreneur Peter Thiel, has never met the Texas congressman he’s aiding…
Born in Germany, he’s a self-made billionaire… He’s a lawyer who co-founded PayPal…
Who is this mystery man who has donated $2.6 million to Endorse Liberty, the pro-Paul super PAC that has produced several viral videos and sponsored sharp attack ads against Santorum,..
He’s also a proud gay – causes including gay rights…”
Santorum is icky.
“peter”: what an utterly insane comment. “Icky”? The Senator is a man of monumental courage and Faith. He alone, among Catholic politicians (please, others, correct this if wrong), has stood up and gave voice to the Faith on matters of “social” issues, such as abortion rights, homosexual sexual rights/marriage, and the like.
Most politicans are cowards. They run from, or to, issues that promise them election and public praise. Few have any faith, or publicly stand up for it (one big exception is Gov. Huckabee, another wonderful man of principle who is unafraid). Rick Santorum does, and he puts it into action.
Unfortunately, so far anyway, the people that get elected to high office are often moral lepers, like President Obama. Feigning Christianity, such politicians will turn on a dime for votes, even if they had voiced strong correct opinions earlier in life — like Jesse Jackson, who was a virtual poet on the pro-life circuit until he saw that he might command more money and power if he changed to pro-choice.
By the way — homosexuality and its sexual expression is “icky” (and damnable). Suggestion: spend some time with a dictionary.
peter St Christopher is right. I agree with everything he replied to you with. Plus why would any intelligent person descibe another human being as icky. Especially a man of charactor and integrity such as Mr Santorium. He is a human being just like you. At least please give him that respect. Jmj
