Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Harriet Miers?

Those of us on the conservative side of things pray that Harriet Miers has the convictions that the majority of conservative Christians have about abortion. While it is true that abortion and euthanasia are not the only issues that Christians are concerned about, they are the issues on the forefront for most of us.

We can only hope and pray that Harriet Miers shares the views of the church she attends and the views of the President for whom she has served as an attorney. These days only persons of great courage and fortitude are willing to risk all to stand against the politically correct position that it is somehow permissible to abort or kill an unborn child. This is a particularly heinous crime against humanity when the child is in the second or even third trimester of development. Fully 1% of children aborted are in the third trimester of their development.

Even more horrible, most of them are viable outside the womb. How many children in one year are third trimester casualties? If we go by 1996 or 1997 figures, there were about 1, 397,000 abortions and if we go by the 1% figure that would mean that 1,397 infants were aborted in the third trimester. That means that a huge portion of these infants were viable outside the womb, making the liberal left schizophrenic at best.

How long can this country continue to ignore the holocaust which goes on year after year here? I can only begin to imagine the wrath of God agains such atrocities. May God grant us the grace to repent before it is too late.
