The shooting occurred during a quiet part of the Father’s Day Mass as about 300 people stood up in preparation for communion. Police say Jennings pulled a gun from his waistband and fired a single shot at the back of Evans’ head, nearly killing him.

“It was echoing in my head so loud,” said Rebecca Ory Hernandez of the gunshot that rang out only feet from where she was with her 5-year-old son.

Seen on the web: Senseless suffering in the midst of the spiritual warfare between the forces of Heaven and the forces of Hell.

Anne Marie says:

December 15, 2012 at 5:44 am

First of all Msgr. Charles Pope, from this Catholic who does live in CT, about forty minutes away from the horror of what happened in Newtown, CT I want to say many thank-yous for this excellent article.

What this horrible and tragic incident says bigtime in that, we are not just dealing with human flesh and blood, but also we are in the midst of a spiritual warfare between the forces of Heaven and the forces of Hell.

Give eternal rest God to the souls of the children and adults who died yesterday in Newtown, CT as well as the dear ones who are in their own personal heartbreaks are left behind.

Where is God At Times Like These?

In the face of such monstrous evil, the proper response is to pray.

Posted today at The American Catholic site

All hail, O holy Queen, Mother exceeding merciful; Life’s spring, sweet comfort, our Hope-bearer, all hail. To thee our plaint we lift, children of Eve yet in exile. To thee our aspiring, and longing and weeping, lift we from this vale of sorrow. Ah then, Mary, be our intercessor; hither vouchsafe to turn thine eyes compassionate, and look upon us. And Jesus, blessed offspring of thy womb, O Mother, show thou to us when earthly exile endeth. O gentle, O loving, O gracious Virgin Mary!

Words fail me.  My prayers for the poor kids murdered, their parents and the adults murdered and their families.

The President wasn’t talking about the 3000+ totally innocent babies who were wantonly slaughtered today (and every day) by abortion. He was talking about the 7 adults and 20 children who were tragically shot to death by a crazed gunman in Newtown, Connecticut.

Little known fact: “Heroic” Rep. Gabrielle “Gabby” Giffords is 100% pro-abortion.

I would like Rep. Giffords to protect innocent human life when she gets back to voting more regularly.

Given that Emily’s List is currently raising money for her, I doubt she will. But I’m not sure she’ll be convinced otherwise by reading about her similarities to Hitler.

What’s changing the culture are ultrasounds and testimony. Options and information. Information absolutely includes the truth about life and death and Church teaching—and the ugly history and reality of the business and ideology behind abortion. Leading people to the light of a culture of life. What’s changing the culture is love. A love for truth. A love for the dignity of every individual.

Remembering “Tiller the Killer”

“Family” photos memorialize Tiller’s work

Text from the NAF website:

We continue to mourn the loss of our friend and colleague, Dr. George Tiller. Dr. Tiller was a dedicated physician who provided quality abortion care to women, at great personal sacrifice and risk. He is truly a hero to his fellow abortion providers and his patients. Dr. Tiller’s office is filled with letters from women, thanking him for the excellent, compassionate care he provided. Many of these women say Dr. Tiller saved their lives.

Tiller relaxing with a very close friend

Since his tragic death, we have received messages from some of his patients and from people around the world who are saddened and outraged. We feel it is important to share these words and tributes to our beloved colleague and friend. For the first time, we will enable comments on our blog so that all of you can share your condolences or offer memories of Dr. Tiller. We invite you to join us in honoring a true American hero, Dr. George Tiller.


Tiller memorial
(The tens of thousands of babies he killed
have no graves or tombstones)

Editor’s note: Wichita abortionist George Tiller offered his customers a memorial service in his facility after he performed abortions, often coupled with weird, religious rituals.

The baby would then typically be incinerated, along with 20 or more other recently aborted babies, in a type of crude, on-site crematorium, which (eerily reminiscent of the Nazi death camps) reportedly, sometimes showered the surrounding neighborhood with human ashes.

Don’t ask … don’t shoot. One dead, one injured in “curious” British nuclear sub incident.

LONDON – A shooting aboard a nuclear-powered submarine in an English port Friday left one Royal Navy sailor dead, one critically injured and a third under arrest, police and military officials said.

Police said the incident on HMS Astute, docked in Southampton, southern England, was not terrorism related.

“Two Royal Navy personnel have been involved in a firearms incident at Southampton docks,” Britain’s defense ministry said in a statement. “Sadly, one has now died as a result of his injuries.”

Defense Secretary Liam Fox said he was saddened by the “tragic incident.”

Murdered Phoenix Federal Judge John Roll Was Said To Be A Daily Communicant

By J. Hanson – Catholic Phoenix

His death in the Giffords shooting puzzled me. Why was he there? Was he a target?

From what I can gather at the moment, it sounds like it was an unfortunate—a tragic—coincidence.

A friend told me that he went to Mass Saturday morning, as it was his habit to do daily, and that he called his wife afterward. He told her that he had heard that Giffords was going to be at Safeway and that he wanted to stop by in order to congratulate her on her recent re-election. He was doing so to be civil.

George Tiller, “High Priest of Late Term Abortions” gunned down inside Kansas church

tiller

The man who is responsible for the gruesome abortion deaths of thousands of innocent babies, many of them extremely late term, was gunned down today by an unknown assailant, while attending services at his church.

Tiller enjoyed the unqualified support of pro-abortion Kansas Governor, now Obama administration HHS Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius. Tiller was also a major donor to Sebelius’ political campaigns.

Various pro-life groups have strongly condemned the killing, stating that the pro-life movement is non-violent, and based on preserving human life and upholding the law, with charity to all … especially mass killers like George Tiller.

The fact that Tiller is known to have summarily killed and dismembered thousands of innocent pre-born babies for profit, gives no one the right to kill him. 

Father Pavone of Priests for Life issued the following statement:

“I am saddened to hear of the killing of George Tiller this morning. At this point, we do not know the motives of this act, or who is behind it, whether an angry post-abortive man or woman, or a misguided activist, or an enemy within the abortion industry, or a political enemy frustrated with the way Tiller has escaped prosecution. We should not jump to conclusions or rush to judgment. 

“But whatever the motives, we at Priests for Life continue to insist on a culture in which violence is never seen as the solution to any problem. Every life has to be protected, without regard to their age or views or actions.”

Barack Obama, the ABORTION President, had this to say:

“I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence.”

Randall Terry, a noted pro-life activist with a distinct penchant for “telling it like it is” said this:

“George Tiller was a mass murderer and we cannot stop saying that,” Terry said. “He was an evil man – his hands were covered with blood.”

Terry said he was now concerned that the Obama administration “will use Tiller’s killing to intimidate pro-lifers into surrendering our most effective rhetoric and actions.”

Whatever the reasons behind all this, and without attempting to prematurely place blame on anyone … one thing’s for sure: The women of Wichita and their yet to be born sons and daughters, are much safer now than they were just a few short hours ago.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to George Tiller’s family and friends.

“Tiller the Killer” is dead. May God have mercy on his soul.

Note to President Obama: We completely agree that difficult issues such as abortion cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence.

Please take the necessary steps to put an immediate end to all abortions, which are indeed heinous acts of violence … while we “work to resolve our profound differences” about the issue.
