On saints and our sovereignty...Venerable Fulton J. Sheen, pray for us

Father Z had the announcement on the fact that Fulton J. Sheen is now Venerable. I grew up with his voice wafting from the black and white television in the living room, as my parents watched him weekly.

I think we should pray to him for America, on this sad, sad day.

Venerable Fulton J. Sheen, pray for us on this day, as America will never be the same. The government now can make us buy anything it wants us to buy. Justice Ginsberg called this "the death spiral". God forgive us for more and more dead babies paid for by all of us...We must fight this decision in the ballot-box.

Here is Ven. Fulton J. Sheen's famous talk against tolerance, which is very appropriate today.

Christian love bears evil, but it does not tolerate it.
It does penance for the sins of others, but it is not broadminded about sin.
The cry for tolerance never induces it to quench its hatred of the evil philosophies that have entered into contest with the Truth.
It forgives the sinner, and it hates the sin; it is unmerciful to the error in his mind.
The sinner it will always take back into the bosom of the Mystical Body;
but his lie will never be taken into the treasury of His Wisdom.
Real love involves real hatred:
whoever has lost the power of moral indignation and the urge to drive the buyers and sellers from the temples
has also lost a living, fervent love of Truth.
Charity, then, is not a mild philosophy of "live and let live";
it is not a species of sloppy sentiment.
Charity is the infusion of the Spirit of God,
which makes us love the beautiful and hate the morally ugly.

What would have been worse: defeat of the law w/ Obama re-election, or this injustice accompanied by his defeat in Nov?

I don't know, but do trust that God is in control, and that He can - will - bring forth a greater good. May we remain faithful and militant. Venerable Bishop Sheen, OPN.
