For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Stand Up For 50 Million Aborted Babies On Monday In DC

The video above shows the Westminster Cathedral Choir singing Lully, Lulla, Thou Little Tiny Child, which was written in the middle ages about the killing of the male babies in Bethlehem (Herod's attempt to slay the infant Jesus).  Although the Feast Of The Holy Innocents was on December 28th, I thought it appropriate to draw attention to it at this time as a reminder of the March For Life in Washington DC on January 24th, (Monday).  The March occurs every year to commemorate the anniversary of Roe v Wade, which was one of the worst examples of judicial legislating since Dred Scott v Sandford.  And you shouldn't need an imagination to see the parallels and symbolism between Herod's rampage against babies and the more than 50 million innocent children killed in their mother's wombs since Roe v Wade.

The Main Stream Media mostly ignores the march, in spite of the huge turnout, claiming off-hand that "there is some kind of march going on with an equal number of pro-choice and pro-life participants."  The truth of the numbers is that over 250,000 pro-lifers show up to march to the Supreme Court building where 30 to 50 pro-choicers await them.  Since no one except Fox News cares to accurately report the events, I for one, plan to show up with my camera and document as much as possible and post the evidence on this blog Monday night like I did last year.  If you can make it to DC to join us, by all means do so.  You'll meet a lot of interesting people and have quite a time.

Here are the lyrics to the above video:

Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child,
By, by, lully lullay,
Thou tiny little child,
By, by, lully lullay.

O sisters too,
How may we do
For to preserve this day
This poor youngling,
For whom we do sing,
By, by, lully lullay?

Herod, the king,
In his raging,
Charged he hath this day
His men of might,
In his own sight,
All young children to slay.

That woe is me,
Poor child for thee!
And ever morn and day,
For thy parting
Neither say nor sing
By, by, lully lullay!
