The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass To End the Slaughter

Part I

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life.

Offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

Behold the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world.

 

Day and night they do not stop exclaiming:

 

"Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God almighty, who was, and who is, and who is to come."

 

This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My Blood.

 

"Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches, wisdom and strength, honor and glory and blessing."

 

"To the one who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor, glory and might, forever and ever."

They throw down their crowns before the throne, exclaiming: "Worthy are you, Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things; because of your will they came to be and were created."

 

Then God's temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant could be seen in the temple. "Write this: Blessed are those who have been called to the wedding feast of the Lamb."

"These are the ones who have survived the time of great distress; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slaughtered because of the witness they bore to the word of God. They cried out in a loud voice, "How long will it be, holy and true master, before you sit in judgment and avenge our blood on the inhabitants of the earth?"

 

Each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to be patient a little while longer until the number was filled of their fellow servants and brothers who were going to be killed as they had been.

For the Lamb who is in the center of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to springs of life-giving water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

Our Lady of Guadalupe Rosary Crusade for Life

Mission Statement

The Mission of Our Lady of Guadalupe Rosary Crusade for Life is to respond to our Holy Father's exortation to stop the "Culture of Death" and to prepare for a new millenium illuminated by the "Gospel of Life". As their parents killed the "Author of Life", the children of the "Culture of Death" are killing God's precious babies by contraception, abortion, and genetic engineering! We participate in the ending of contraception and abortion by the judicious means Our Lord has left us: the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Eucharistic Adoration and all the Sacraments and sacramentals. By peaceful pro-life rosaries with Our Lady at the foot of our modern day Golgatha we curb this massive assault against human life and put a stop to these unspeakable crimes. We must reject and reverse the tragic policy of Roe vs. Wade, which the Supreme Court tragically imposed upon America in 1973. We will not keep abortion "the Silent Holocaust". We will educate our country to the reality of the horrors taking place.

Pope John Paul II has told us: "The Dark Horse is on the Horizon. Whenever human life is threatened, we will stand up. America Defend Life! Woe to you if you do not suceed in defending life! Do not be afraid, Jesus Christ is with you!"

 

Quoting Malcom Muggeridge: "We will not recognize the true value of our own lives until we affirm the value in the lives of others; however low it flickers or fiercely burns, it is still a Divine Flame which no man dare to presume to put out, be his motives ever so humane and enlightened".

In conclusion, what should our response be to this holocaust? Come join us at the foot of the Cross where Our Lord Jesus is being crucified anew. We must: "Rescue those who are being dragged to death and from those tottering to execution". Let us die with Christ that we may share in His Resurrection. "We have been raised with Christ" (Col 3:14) and yet we still suffer and are slaughtered for His sake all the day long (Rom 8) yet we do not grieve as others do, who have no hope. Our Lord Jesus said "Be not afraid, Peace be with you".
