Is she viable human life? Yes or no?

A nation that has given permission to parents to kill their children will not hesitate to give permission to children to kill their parents!

There is an ironic justice in the way the world works. The selfish generation that decided to legalize killing “non-viable” human babies in the womb for their own convenience have dismissed the value of human life at one end of the human lifespan.

The generation that ushered in contraception and abortion is now growing old. The younger generation learned from their elders that human life can be extinguished if it is “non-viable” or unwanted or too expensive.

As the older generation – that ushered in abortion – is now growing senile and aged, the younger generation will consider THEM to be non-viable. And since the value of human life has been done away with, the prodigies of the abortion generation will end up killing off the non-viable elderly at the other end of the life spectrum.

AND, since the older generation that ushered in contraception and abortion will now have fewer to pay for their end of life existence, it will only facilitate the extermination of the older generation since they are too expensive to keep alive and are no longer considered viable or important. Welcome to Obamacare!

Legalization of human destruction at one end of the life spectrum ushers in destruction at the other end. The elderly who were quiet and allowed abortion, will themselves become considered not work keeping alive. And since they contracepted and killed off the younger generation, who will defend them and pay to keep them alive.

Ironic justice. Sad but seemingly becoming the truth of our morally and economically crumbling country.

We are happy to have Robyn Lee with us. She is a writer for Catholic Digest and The National Catholic Register owned by EWTN. She is a great pilgrim and is writing articles each day about our pilgrimage. Here is a picture of Robyn eating her St. Peter’ Fish today for lunch. Make sure to read her daily reports HERE.

Another great day with beautiful weather and when we could outsmart all the lines and congestion. Israel is full of pilgrims, tourists and buses, but knowing what to do and where to go helps avoid the crowds.

We started the day with a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee where I told the story of how I went fishing all night with two Jewish fishermen. Calm seas and we could see the points of Jesus’ ministry along the shore.

We arrived at Nof Ginosar to view the ancient “Jesus Boat” from the 1st century. This is stepping back in history to the fishing world known by Jesus and his disciples.

Steve teaching on Capernaum and the Eucharist

We arrived at Capernaum for Mass. The reading is always John 6 where Jesus says, Eat My Flesh and Drink My Blood.” The last verse of the Gospel reading is, “Jesus spoke these words in the Synagogue in Capernaum.” Everyone at this moment turns to look out of the window of the church and THERE IS THE SYNAGOGUE! I gave my talk, “Defending the Eucharist.”

After a delicious dinner of St. Peter’s Fish we took off for Jerusalem driving south but going UP to Jerusalem. We stopped at Ein Kerem where Mary went to visit her relative Elizabeth. All through our 2.5 hour drive I kept saying, “Remember, Mary is still walking!”

I gave my talk on Mary, the Ark of the New Covenant and Queen of Heaven. We arrived at our Notre Dame Hotel early so everyone had a few hours to relax, settle in and enjoy the place before dinner. The evening was free.

Don’t forget to leave comments below. The pilgrims love them. I read them every day on the bus. You don’t have to be a family or friend to leave a comment :-)
