Jan 22 – Homily – Fr Elias: Day of Infamy

Click to Play

Homily #130122b ( 12min) Play – Today is the fortieth anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion. Fr. Elias preaches on how we have forsaken not only charity but the more basic requirement of justice where we unjustly deprive the most innocent among us of the very right to life. Not only are falling short, then, of the Judeo-Christian ideal embodied in the Ten Commandments, but of the natural ideal of being  just, civilized and humane.

    Correction: The ‘pro-life’ phrase “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…” is commonly attributed to the Constitution, but it actually comes from the Declaration of Independence.

    The 5th Amendment does offer protections to our “life, liberty, or property,” noting we cannot be deprived of any of them without due process of law.

    “No person shall be…deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law…”

    So Obama is guilty of purging himself. Plus he’s a lawyer and once taught constitutional law!

    Great homily!
