Pro-life message is about conversion of hearts Print
Letters to the editor

To the editor:

Thank you for the front page article on Pope Benedict’s Lenten message about conversion (Catholic Herald, February 11 issue). This ties in exactly with Chris Slattery’s message at the February 6, 2010, pro-life rally at the UW Library Mall. Chris said the pro-life message is about conversion.

So, put them together and you get this: Our Lenten journey is converting hearts to receive, and pass on, God’s love. We want UW’s abortionist, Dr. Caryn Dutton, and all of Madison’s OB-GYN doctors who commit abortions, to have a conversion of heart to receive, and pass on, God’s love.

This is impossible with man, but possible with God. Thank you, Bishop Morlino, for your remarks on Page 3, pertaining to our Lenten journey. Even our diocese is not our final home, you say. So, we pray and work for pro-life conversion in our diocese, and we embrace long-suffering to reach the way, the truth, and the life. Jesus said the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Mary Uhler’s editorial addresses abstinence programs. She says parents and teachers “should emphasize the importance of acting responsibly.” I daresay “chastely”! Please listen to Fr. John Hardon’s 12-tape series “Catholic Sexual Morality.” He says chastity is charity and that the teachings of the Church are charity. Thus, the pro-life movement is charity, i.e., the teachings of the Catholic Church. Chastity includes abstinence and we all need to live chastely!

Let us be Wisconsinites For Life! Choose Life! Choose God! Choose Love!
