Understanding the Vow of Chastity. It's a Spiritual Romance.

Source  Nuns during their perpetual religious vows details

We're created for the love of God.  Some can do it directly - like these nuns.  Others like myself did not receive that special gift of celibate love.  I do it indirectly through married love.  The first one is like going up on a helicopter;  the latter on the stairway.  The spiritual love is obviously better but it does have it's challenges.  For women, the loss of fecundity is the greatest temptation.  For men, I guess it would be the inability to pass the family jewels into the next generation to somehow perpetuate oneself through a child.  On the other hand, the rewards are awesome.  One can focus on loving God and serving His Church in total freedom.  One can fight fearlessly for the sake of God, justice or human dignity without any worry that one's child or spouse could be punished as a reprisal.  But the biggest plus is that one can love the heavenly Father in the very same way as His only begotten Son.  Celibate love enables one to love with that pure, total and complete self-giving of the Lord Jesus.  So, one can follow, imitate and be united with the Incarnate God in the most intimate way.  ( Who knows dear reader, the Lord might bless you with it - if you ask. )

Video: Our Lady Stopping Abortion (Awesome or creepy depending on where you stand.)

Watch for the testimony about our Lady showing up in the abortuary and causing a worker to quit.  Abortion  is a woman's problem and a woman will bring the Solution.

So many other Jews took refuge in churches and monasteries of Rome, Pius XII places that can claim to ownership of the Vatican, and then extraterritorial.  After visiting the site www.alemastronardi.com

AZ again. Most pro-life legislative session in history!

Excerpts:
"With the legislature approving several pro-life bills and Brewer signing them, the state is posed to see a reduction in the number of abortions....

Arizona led the nation by becoming the first state in the country to opt out of providing abortion coverage in any insurance exchanges offered under the new federal health care law.

Arizona taxpayer dollars will no longer provide elective abortion insurance coverage for any government employees.

Arizonans now will know the facts about abortion in the state as abortion practitioners will be required by law to report data about abortion, including physical harm to women.

Arizona leads the nation in enacting common-sense, ethical regulations for protecting the dignity of human life that do not interfere with legitimate bio-tech research.

The new laws include provisions that: require informed consent before a woman donates or sells her eggs to clinics, prohibit the sale of human eggs for research purposes and prohibit the sale of human embryos for any purpose, and prohibit human cloning, embryonic stem cell research, and the creation of human-animal hybrids.
