It is a case that literally involves life and death. We're talking about the promised execution of a Christian pastor in Iran. His only crime: He embraced Christianity and, for that, has been sentenced to death by the Muslim-controlled government of Iran. Join the ACLJ's aggressive international effort to save his life. I just signed the Petition to Secretary of State Clinton - Call on Iran to save Christian pastor. Please sign with me today. http://aclj.us/mc9d
Beatings Jeopardize Health of Chinese Forced Abortion Opponent - “Without showing any legal documents and without any of them wearing a uniform, they plundered almost everything from my home. My husband and I were wounded severely, yet not allowed to leave home for any medical aid,” Yuan explained. “More than 10 men covered me totally with a blanket and kicked my ribs and all over my body. After half an hour’s non-stop torture, I finally squeezed my head out of the blanket. I saw more than 10 men surrounded Chen Guangcheng, torturing him.”

Fáilte ó chroí romhaibh gach duine, agus bail ó Dhia oraibh! That is to say, A hearty welcome everyone, and God's Blessing on you. I hope you enjoy your stay as you look around. My name is George and I was born in 1969. I'm a convert to the Catholic faith, which is the best thing that's ever happened to me. Thanks be to God.
As an American of Irish descent, I'm interested in the way the Catholic faith has found expression in traditional Irish culture. Such expressions can be found in song, poetry and the inspirational folk prayer tradition of Ireland, in beautifully vibrant artistic expression such as in the Book of Kells, and perhaps most profoundly in the highly energetic spirit of evangelism we see in the Irish saints of old who helped to spread the Gospel of Christ throughout Europe.
Irish culture is also known for a strong sense of family and community. This sense of family can be expressed with the Irish language term muintearas, which means family or community-mindedness.
But in today's world, traditional values even in Ireland, are endangered in the midst of increasing secularity and indifference to God and His ways. The spirit of family and community must be protected and preserved, and continue to be shaped in the Light of the Gospel of Christ, Whose Life fills all things and brings them to fulfillment.
Whatever our background, we as Catholics throughout the world and other Christians of whatever denomination, need to work together as a family, and do our best with the help of God, to encourage and preserve true family values and community-mindedness; that all may know and understand that throughout the world, we are an extended family and are all related. With the Lord Jesus Christ as our head, let us go forward together in faith, strengthened and moved by His grace to help renew our culture, that it may be a culture of life for all. We live in times when this is so vital.
For the love of God and neighbor, I also include Community Out-reach and Pro-Life pages to help point the way to healing for those facing troublesome situations. People come to God from many states in life and God's love embraces everyone.
May the peace of God be among us and may the grace of God be in our hearts.
