TFP March for Life Austin

TFP Volunteers at the March for Life in Texas

By Cesar Franco

On May 14, 2019, members of Tradition, Family, Property–Texas joined other anti-abortion prayer warriors to protest a Planned Parenthood fundraiser called “Cocktail for a Cause.” The event was hosted by the Planned Parenthood Young Leaders at the Axelrad Beer Garden in Houston.

Pro-lifers held a banner that said, “Thou Shalt Not Kill! Stop Abortion!” Other signs highlighted women who regret their lost motherhood or invited cars to honk against abortion.

Those advocating child-killing were not happy at the sight of people witnessing to the Faith. They screamed insults and winced when many cars honked in rejection of the monstrous sin of procured abortion. The protest also included the praying of three rosaries and the singing of hymns in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Defending unborn babies is a heroic action that many pro-lifers do daily or weekly. The media do not praise these protests. Today’s decadent culture rejects and even harasses those who dare to challenge the culture of death. Those protesting at the Planned Parenthood fundraiser could not help but recall the cowardly actions of Brian Sims, a Democratic member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. His prolonged, verbal harassment of an elderly, respectful pro-life lady in Philadelphia should be a reminder that those who defend the truth can expect to be persecuted.

She and all those who resist abortion can console themselves with the sublime words of Our Lord, “Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also” (John 15:20).

Why Our Lady Weeps

May 14, 2019

By Prof. Plinio Corrêa de OliveiraInternational Pilgrim Virgin Statue cries in New Orleans

The weeping of Our Lady in New Orleans is related to the prophecies of Fatima. The fact that a statue of Our Lady of Fatima shed tears means the event is related to the apparitions in Portugal. Now, the apparitions in Portugal were meant to give a message, and this message must explain her tears.

In light of her message, the reason for her tears is more than obvious: Humanity failed to give up the sins she had ordered it to abandon. Therefore, the punishments she foresaw are about to come. And she weeps at the imminence of the punishments which she was unable to prevent because of the wickedness of men. That is the obvious reason for her crying. So we must consider that Our Lady wept in New Orleans for the whole world to understand that she is sad, that an immense sin is being perpetrated and is attaining its climax. And that she wants to be consoled and defended in the struggle she wages against this sin to make her prediction come true: “Finally, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”

Our Lady has come here to ask for resolution, to transform us, so we may change our ways and give her everything. In other words, she came to preach a Crusade. Think of the metaphor of the Dethroned Queen: “Will any of you rise? Will any of you begin a struggle to stop this abomination? No one?”

The International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima that wept in New Orleans in July 1972, visiting the headquarters of the Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira Institute in São Paulo, Brazil, during Holy Week 2019. 

“Come, Lady and Mother, come as soon as possible, come immediately. Come with rumbling, thunder, and splendor. Come to overcome, to conquer completely, and to win until the end of the world. Consider, Lady and Mother, that everything is extremely ripe for punishing Satan and his henchmen, liberating thy children, and establishing thy Reign.”

– Saint of the Day, July 7, 1974 (excerpts)

TFP protests AbortionBy Evan Olwell

On April 28, 2019, members of TFP-Texas joined other pro-life activists outside of Lockwood Skating palace in Houston to protest an abortion fundraiser being held by the pro-abortion Lilith Fund. The Catholic faithful at the site held pro-life signs and prayed the Holy Rosary.

When TFP member Cesar Franco spoke to the skating rink owner, he discovered that the pro-abortion fundraising group had passed itself off as a community service organization that was raising money for the underprivileged. The owner expressed great surprise upon hearing that the Lilith Fund was really fundraising for the murder of the innocent unborn. After investigating the group’s website, he finally understood the real nature of the group that was using his rink. Despite the evidence, the Lilith Fund would not admit to him that the fundraiser was for abortions.

The Rosary rally in front of the rink was received with the honks of passersby who showed their support. One family even pulled over to join in the praying of the Rosary.

By Ben Broussard

Easter Sunday is the most solemn feast of the Church year. However, in New Orleans, the festivities were marred by the Gay Easter Parade in the French Quarter. Now in its 20th year, the afternoon of Easter Sunday has homosexuals parading through the city streets, making a mockery of what should be a sacred occasion. Worse yet, families bring their young children to participate.

Members of TFP-Louisiana walked the streets of the French Quarter the following day, praying the Most Holy Rosary in reparation.

The penitential pilgrimage began at the tomb of Ven. Henriette Delille, the heroic foundress of the Sisters of the Holy Family who defended Catholic marriage in the 19th century. The members then walked and prayed, soon arriving at the International Shrine of Saint Jude Thaddeus. The patron of hopeless causes was invoked for the conversion of this city.

Continuing from there, the members prayed as they made their way through the city’s oldest streets. Proceeding through Jackson Square, they stopped at St. Louis Cathedral for additional prayers in reparation.

Why Our Lady Weeps

 

The rosary continued as they walked to the equestrian statue of Saint Joan of Arc. Prayers were offered to the Maid of Orleans, one of the city’s patron saints, for a renewed culture of purity.

Reactions to the act of reparation varied. Some became quiet hearing the words of the Hail Mary. Others took out their phones and began taking photos. There were some who pointed and laughed, while a few joined in the prayers as the pilgrimage passed by. One thing was for sure: very few remained indifferent as the Most Holy Rosary was prayed in the streets.

Returning to the starting point, members could see rainbow confetti and pro-homosexual symbols as they passed through the French Quarter. It was certain the members were praying in the very place where a short time before Easter Sunday was profaned with sinful and lewd behavior.

May Our Lady of Prompt Succor accept these prayers in reparation, and hasten to restore a culture of purity in New Orleans and across America.

Speaker Dr. Steve Baskerville at Summit of the Survivors of the Sexual RevolutionBy Thomas Drake

The Ruth Institute organized a much-needed Conference and Awards Dinner April 26 and 27 in Lake Charles, La. The gathering featured an amazing ensemble of scholars, activists, and public witnesses and brought forth the truth that God’s plan for the family is the foundation of every enduring society.

The whirlwind of “The Sixties” brought the destruction of not only institutions and social customs, but the ruin of millions of lives. The stories of survivors of the Sexual Revolution—children of divorce, abandoned spouses, children of same-sex parents, refugees from the homosexual lifestyle—all illustrate the bitter fruits of “free love.”

The conference featured the riveting testimony of Moira Greyland, author of The Last Closet: The Dark Side of Avalon and daughter of the world-renowned sexual revolutionaries Marion Zimmer Bradley (of The Mists of Avalon) and Walter Breen. Personal stories of broken vows, family ties, and social roles gave a face to the dry statistics of social breakdown. These were the results of the moral breakdown of our Church and society.

Summit of the Survivors of the Sexual RevolutionThe child trauma, the clergy sex abuse, and the growing government power are costing us all. This was amply demonstrated by several speakers including Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D., a retired professor of Sociology at the Catholic University of America, and Dr. Stephen Baskerville.

Dr. Jennifer Morse and her staff of the Ruth Institute rendered a great service by organizing this event. With brilliant scholarship and personal testimonies, it proved that the Church was always right about marriage, family, and sexual morality.
