Fr. Norman Weslin, Champion of the Unborn

...Back in April I blogged about one of my heroes, Fr. Norman Weslin. Father went home to Jesus and his beloved "Twelve Star General," Mary Immaculate, on Wednesday. No one who ever met Father could forget him. He had an infectious enthusiasm and a single-hearted commitment to the unborn babies. He defended them throughout his entire priesthood, spending (God only knows how much) time in jail following numerous arrests. His last arrest was praying at Our Lady's university in reparation for the abomination of their honoring the most pro-abortion politician in U.S. history. Seeing this holy, elderly priest handcuffed and carted away by police while Fr. Jenkins tickled the ears of the political elite gave a stark picture contrasting those who follow Jesus with the modern day pharisees.

I'm confident we have a prayer warrior in heaven pleading with Mary for all those in her pro-life army who continue to fight not only for the unborn, but for the Catholic faith.

Our Lady help of Christians, pray for us...

In other news it is reported today that the University of Notre Dame suing the US Government in particular the Obama Administration for violating our freedom of religion, guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constitution.

It is my hope that Notre Dame has learned a hard lesson, being, that when one deals with a machiavel, deals are worthless. In a way, we might say Notre Dame's chickens have come home to roost.

It is time for Fr Jenkins to do what God placed him on earth to do, Proclaim the Gospel. Time will only tell if Notre Dame will change it's mind.

Isn't it remarkable that Fr Weslin, died and Notre Dame decided to sue within a week?

Richard,

Who is the Catholic clergiman (either Bishop or Cardinal) who has been quoted as stating

'I will die in my bed',
'My successor will die in a prison cell', and
'His Successor will die a martyr' ?

right up there with this amazing priest is the very active and amazing Mgr. Riley, who has preached all over the world (including at my church in front of a packed youth congregation) on the truth about abortion, contraception and promiscuity, along with a potted history from the enlightenment (is that what its called?????) thinker Malthus, to Sanger, Stapes and friends (the dark history of eugenics followed in my part of the world and yours from the 1920's right up to the 1980's in some cases...true warriors of the faith such as the late Fr. you have written of here, and priest I have mentioned are needed now more than ever. Fr. Riley also stressed the three 'Humanae's' not just 'Vitae' but 'Generus' and the other Humanae that presently escapes me; could you list it for me??

May you be richly and

Blessings,

Sarah,

Hey Sarah!
'I will die in my bed', 'My successor will die in a prison cell', and 'His Successor will die a martyr' is from Francis Cardinal George. http://wdtprs.com/blog/2012/02/religious-persecution-and-martyrdom/

The three Humanae, Humanae Vitae,
Humanae Generis, and Dignitatis Humanae. They may be found at these locations:
