Saved from abortion, Chilean twin brothers are now priests

Santiago, Chile, Aug 16, 2013 / 04:12 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Two twin brothers in Chile say that their mother’s determination in protecting them from abortion despite the advice of doctors helped to foster their vocations to the priesthood.

“How can I not defend the God of life?” said Fr. Paulo Lizama. “This event strengthened my vocation and gave it a specific vitality, and therefore, I was able to give myself existentially to what I believe.”

“I am convinced of what I believe, of what I am and of what I speak, clearly by the grace of God,” he told CNA.

Chilean Cathedral desecrated by pro-abortion mob

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — Abortion-rights demonstrators vandalized Chile’s main cathedral during a Mass and used pews as barricades during clashes with police.

A group of demonstrators broke off from a largely peaceful protest calling for the legalization of abortion Thursday night and stormed into the Metropolitan Cathedral of Santiago, interrupting the homily.

They painted walls with pro-abortion messages, broke ornaments and hauled pews all the way to the Plaza de Armas square in front of cathedral. Police in riot gear rushed to contain them, and arrested at least two people.

What a concept! Chilean Constitution protects life. Government runs pro-life TV spots.


Watch the cool videos

Chile’s constitution and whole legal system protects all human life, including the child before birth.

“Chile, the Miners, and Respect for Human Life” is the title of a new video which points out that Chile in many ways is a model for other countries to follow, not only in the case of the recent successful rescue of the 33 miners trapped underground for 69 days.

Seen on the web: The truth of how those 33 men survived 69 days at more than 2000 feet below ground.

Listening to the news, this morning, about the rescue in Chile it amazes me how no one in the mainstream news can pinpoint the Truth of how those 33 men survived 69 days at more than 2000 feet below ground. All the analysts and pundants go on and on about their daily routine to stay mentally and physically fit. They focus on details like, “they knew what time it was because they had cell phones” and they ignore the one item they barely mention at all, the time they took to pray. One of the miners, the 9th one rescued, became their spiritual leader. they sent for a crucifix, rosaries and statues Mary and saints. When he came out he kneeled down in prayers to thank God. His wife of more than 20 years is planning a church wedding because their first one was a civil ceremony, to thank God. In a Spanish country where most are catholic, the prayers of the miners, their families, their countrymen and all of us watching 24 hour covereage on cable news, how can anyone ignore the fact that prayer is the answer. Honest to goodness faith, love and prayer saved these people. The “experts” watch the the men smiling and celebrating and still predict an awful outcome in the future where they will “undoubtedly” have nightmares and severe depression or debilitating desease. Some of the men are sick and very weak. Some will suffer, some may never go back to the mines but love and faith will not abandon them, now. Psychologists will study them for the next 10 or 20 years. I hope their is a seminary student out there somewhere that will follow them also and study the amazing grace that is the faith that illuminated 69 days of the darkest hours of those miners lives.

I am not sure how it happens when I think I cannot believe more than I already do… the wonder and awe I find in Jesus, still grows exponentially.

Volcanic Eruption Meets Lightning Storm

Volcanic Eruption Meets Lightning Storm

Two of nature’s most spectacular forces produced an incredible brew in the skies of Chile as a volcanic eruption met a lightning storm.

Tons of dust and ash from the eruption of the Chaitïn volcano poured into the night sky just as an electric storm passed overhead.

The resulting collision created a spectacular sight as lightning flickered around the dust cloud amid the orange glow of the volcano.
