Cardinal Arinze Podcast and the Beauty of Life

Recently the good couple over at Catholic Familyland Europe asked the blogging Catholic faithful to put the Cardinal Arinze picture up on our blogs, along with a link. I personally love the podcast. The Cardinal speaks so clearly and so brilliantly on matters of faith, morals and the family. He's one of the strongest leaders in the world today (take that Canadian and American governments! especially Liberals and Democrats!). In fact, I'd say he's only bested by the Vicar of Christ himself.

Check out the Cardinal Arinze podcast sometime, he's one of the wisest, most orthodox, most spiritual, fair governing, sanctifying and best teachers on this earth currently. Not only is he a leader in Christ's flock, whom Christ has sent out (He knew the Good Cardinal would be a successor of the apostles) but he is also one of the greatest followers of Christ in the Church militant. For those of you don't know, the Church militant is the name given to the Church on earth.

The Beauty of Life

The gift of human life is one of the most dignifying gifts that can be given or received. I write for a secular audience as well as a spiritual audience. It is most often that secular people cannot grasp the spiritual, but spiritual people have lived a secular life, seen its setbacks and moved on to a superior spiritual life full of richness and grace in Christ. The gift of life is the first step to the gift of everlasting life.

Given how beautiful the gift of life is in itself, it's difficult for me to see how people can say "it's better for that child to be killed than to live a life of incompetance and drooling." Sad, bitter people say things like that. Selfish people who care about their own money, and pleasures of the body. They will say, well I wouldn't want to take care of someone like that, so why should anyone else? But where is the love of the life? How come their minds are so limited that they can't see that gift of life? It is these people who are the self-proclaimed "progressives." There are many of these types in the U.K. and Netherlands.

In 2000, the Netherlands implemented an infant euthanasia program where a panel of doctors will decide weather to commit infanticide on a baby if he has permanent disability or chronic or terminal illness. They brush aside the fact that life should be lived to the fullest and make themselves out to be gods, deciding the fate of mere motrals. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynocologists in the U.K. is now pusing for debate on infanticide now, only six years after the Dutch legalized it.

It was only 400 years ago when the Spanish conquered the pagans in South America, where they used to commit infanticide regularly to make human sacrifices to false-gods. Please see Mel Gibson's new movie Apocolypto. It seems like the "progressives" are actually regressive in their thinking. They want to bring us back to the level of bloodshed of pagan times. In fact, if you've ever seen those pictures of aborted babies, you could conclude that we are already there, given the number of times that happens in North America, let alone the world, every year. This is all thanks of course to liberal ideology, who's cornerstone is secular humanism.

The secular humanist thinks only of the immediate gains of decisions, how will they help the "chosen" or "wanted" people on earth here and now, only thinking of long term solutions and consequenes for a few select issues, namely environmental concerns.

So before we turn our nations back into the pagan butcherfests they used to be, I urge all the liberals to actually consider real human rights such as the right to life, instead of pseudo rights, such as the right to kill vulnerable children in the womb or out, the "right to marry," marriage is a blessing and a calling, not a right, or the right to call up terrorists and not have the government listen in.

Remember, in all situations the child may be happy but the true beauty and happiness lies in the life. The child may be suffering, but the true beauty and happiness in that life, that gift, that won't change. There is always the possibility of things getting worse, but isn't the possibility of things getting better more important? Isn't letting the child live to have a chance at eternal life the best option?

Eternal life is an amazing concept, and I'll talk about more about it in another entry! Father please grant my Char eternal life, so that I may spend it with her, as well as grant all my family and friends all they need to recieve the same gift.

Pax vobiscum,

Allan O'Canada
