Weekend Retreat for Post Abortive Siblings

Posted by | Feb 18, 2016 | No Comments

Lumina has offered days of prayer and healing and day retreats for postabortive siblings for the past six years.  In March of 2015, we held the first weekend retreat for postabortive siblings under the direction of Rev. Fidelis Moscinski, CFR.  A postabortive sibling who works with the Lumina ministry was also at the retreat.  Participants came from all over the country to encounter hope and healing.  I was also blessed to be on EWTN to talk about the Far Reaching Impact of Abortion on Siblings.  We are only just beginning to scratch the surface of the reality that abortion negatively impacts everyone.

Moms & Babies Forced Out of Good Counsel Home – Please Help!

Posted by | Feb 18, 2016 | No Comments

Most of us have fond memories of Valentine’s Day, and at Good Counsel we always try to make it a special day for the mothers living inside each home.

This Valentine’s Day, however, was very rough for the mothers in our Harrison, New York home, which we call Daystar. Daystar is a special residence because it is one of only a few in the entire country that will take in homeless pregnant women who have a dual diagnosis of mental illness and/or substance abuse. Many women who fall into this classification often are pushed toward aborting their babies. Read More

We are amazed when we take stock of what is accomplished in just a year here at Good Counsel homes, but even more incredible is the amount of support we continue to receive from you, the friends, and family of Good Counsel. Whether your support is financial, prayerful, or hands-on volunteering, know that we remain grateful each day of the year as we pray for you, in thanksgiving, every day.

We won’t ever stop saying it – we can only do what we do because of what you do. Read More

The Journey to Infinite Mercy

Posted by | Feb 10, 2016 | No Comments

Today’s Readings: Joel 2: 12-18; 2 Corinthians 5: 20-6: 2; Matthew 6: 1-6, 16-18

The prophet Joel calls us today to start up our spiritual journey with our whole heart as we fast. Why do we fast and abstain from pleasure? Because we know we are sinners and in great need of God’s mercy. Every journey needs to begin with a first step, and today we take a step into church to receive ashes so we may be marked by an outward sign that signifies an inner decision to repent and accept God’s mercy.

Zika Virus & the Bite of Abortion

Posted by | Feb 4, 2016 | No Comments

Just as I expected, it did not take long for proabortion advocates to use the Zika virus to promote the legalization of abortion in countries where it is restricted, or limited, like El Salvador.

“When women are desperate… they will seek out their own solutions,” said Carmen Barroso, Western Hemisphere Director for the International Planned Parenthood Federation in a January 28th, New York Post article. “World Health Organization officials said Thursday the virus is “spreading explosively” and the Americas could see up to 4 million cases of Zika in the next year. And as it expands to countries where abortion is strictly limited or outlawed altogether, doctors and health advocates fear that many women could resort to back-alley procedures that imperil their health.” Read More
