Blessed are you

| 1 Comment

...when you get arrested for taking a crippled woman a bottle of water. Reader Julianne Wiley writes:

I know this brave, gutsy lady Lana Jacobs. She is indeed a grandmother, also the mother of two disabled daughters. She and her husband and kids are from the St. Francis Catholic Worker house in Columbia, MO, a place where they try to LIVE what Jesus said in Matthew 25: you know, you encounter the person who is hungry, thirst, naked, sick, in prison, and you do--- what? And then Jesus says, "Whatsoever you do to the least of my brethren, you do unto Me."

Let's send her a bit of support (she'll have legal expenses):

Lana Jacobs
St. Francis Catholic Worker
901 Rangeline Street
Columbia, MO 65201

BTW, she'll face charges of trespass or whatever, I dispute the idea that what she did is illegal. Every state makes provision for what is called a "necessity" defense, based on the fact that you were doing something urgent to save somebody's life (or even to save a valuable piece of property, or a pet, by the way!)

Terri's voice

| No Comments

If you're having trouble downloading the new audio of Terri Schiavo from last Friday, there's a copy on my PC.

Update: According to Drudge, the family says the audio's not recent, but from 2004. Meanwhile, Dom's relaying a report that Terri made a more intelligible utterance at her lawyer's urging.

I found the news disturbing. Fr. Rob Johansen had just gotten off the phone with Bob and Mary Schindler, who most of us know as the parents of Terri Schiavo. The culture of death can hardly wait. Come March 18th, the Florida woman must be executed! And she will not be comforted by the Holy Eucharist known as Viaticum when shared with the dying as she faces a slow and horrible death by starvation and dehydration.


What? Who?

On life and living in communion with the Catholic Church.
