Life After Death and Near Death Experiences
Deacon Alex Jones died a few days ago after a very sudden illness. He came to the Catholic Church from his life as a Pentacostal preacher in Detroit, where he pastored two churches. When he entered the Catholic Church, after serious study of the early Church Fathers, over half his congregation followed him. It was really quite remarkable. He found the center of the Early Church was not great preaching, or even the moving of the Spirit, but the Eucharist, the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.
May God bless him now with the Beatific Vision.
The pro-life majority of Northern Ireland never waste an opportunity to use their vote to protect the voiceless. In the run up to the 2016 Northern Ireland Assembly Election on Thursday 5th May, Precious Life, the leading pro-life group in Northern Ireland, launched its ‘Your Vote Matters’ Campaign.Committed members of the group distributed over 100,000 leaflets in homes, churches, and city centres throughout the six counties informing the public of the political parties’ and individual candidates’ positions on abortion.The huge success of DUP candidates and the decline of Sinn Fein votes by nearly 3% shows that the people of Northern Ireland voted pro-life on Thursday 5th May 2016.In response to the election results, Bernadette Smyth, the director of Precious Life, stated:“Precious Life would like to congratulate the newly elected Members of the Northern Ireland Assembly who have vowed to defend the right to life of all unborn children at Stormont. The DUP and SDLP have publicly made clear that they are pro-life parties. Precious Life are very hopeful that they will stand strong in their opposition to the plans of Sinn Fein and others to bring forward legislation to allow abortion in cases where an unborn child has been diagnosed with a life-limiting disability. We trust that they will not let their voters down. We, the electorate, must keep the pressure on our political representatives to ensure that they do not renege on their pro-life promises.”
