Keeping It Catholic - with Marianna Bartold

How Long, O Lord?

Easter will soon be here but, before Easter, there is always Good Friday. On this Good Friday of the Year of Our Lord 2005, Keeping It Catholic asks you to continue your efforts on behalf of Terri Schindler Schiavo.

Yesterday, ?big? news media were finally paying attention to the Schindler family?s questions regarding why Terri collapsed, which ultimately lead to the question of why Michael Schiavo must be investigated. Despite all that, the courts again ruled against the Schindlers, Terri's parents and siblings who are desperately trying to save her life and all those who are disabled. And they will again appeal.

As her family battles for her life, and as the courts continue to stall, Terri is fast approaching 100 hours of thirst and starvation. It is a well-known medical fact that people who suffer this kind of torturous death die within 7 days to 2 weeks. But before all that, they suffer in the most cruelly inhuman ways.

How long, O Lord? How much more must Terri suffer before President Bush intervenes and takes her into protective custody?

Let us pray for the special intercession of St. Maximilian Kolbe - who suffered 2 weeks of the same fate that Terri now suffers. While all the other prisoners condemned with him died, St. Maximilian somehow struggled on - and we Catholics know that he must have been kept alive only through God's Will. In the end, the Nazis could no longer endure the saint's endurance and put him to death, via an injection of carbolic acid, on the eve of the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Let us pray that Terri is spared any more immoral interference in her life by those who wish to end her life. Let us pray that President Bush does the right thing TODAY.

To that end, again - pray, study and ACT. Please call or fax the president this very moment!

Name: Karen

On the MSNBC site:
"But U.S. District Judge James Whittemore denied the
request, saying the parents failed the same legal
test they had failed earlier in the week — showing
that the claims they'd raise at a trial
are 'substantial.'

He said the Schindlers didn't meet the required legal
standard under each of their new claims:"

The fourth cited was

"That state judge George Greer violated the
Constitution's ban on "cruel and unusual punishment"
by withholding nutrition. Whittemore said that
applies only to people convicted of a crime."

Our country is as deranged today as Germany was during the Holocaust and France during the French Revolution. Ours is a legal holocaust, an evil abomination, where animals (who cannot speak for themselves) are guaranteed maximum protection in law, where those who have committed the worst crimes against man are afforded the best quality of life with humane termination while the innocent person(who cannot speak for themselves) have virtually no protection in law, are denied the right to life, and suffer the most inhumane terminations!!!!

Pray for an end to Teri's suffering according to God's will, but we must also be like St. Maria Goretti who forgave her attacker because his soul was of more importance to her than the loss of her own life. Do we not think that Teri, being a Roman Catholic, would be unlike Saint Maria Goretti? She would forgive her attackers and want to save their souls! Suffering is part of Catholicism. Do not waist Teri's suffering on malice or anger, have hope. Remember, God wants all men to return to Him; therefore, Pray unceasingly for our country and Pray for those who have harmed Teri!
