The Sacred Heart of Jesus: Vanquishing Roe v Wade

25 June 2022

5.1 MINS

The horrendous judgement Roe v Wade, based on a grievous lie by the plaintiff and unsound reasoning by the male judges, has been overturned on a very significant day, and in a most significant year. On the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, seven times seven years after the 1973 case, this marks a great jubilee for the families of America.

What a wonderful day! The end of the terrible, inhuman, unlawful regime instituted by the men of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) almost half a century ago.

Catholics: SCOTUS vs POTUS

Six out of nine of the current justices in the Supreme Court are Catholics; another, Justice Neil Gorsuch, was raised Catholic but may have become Episcopalian upon marriage. The remaining two are Jewish.

Four of the Catholics — Justices Amy Coney Barrett, Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh and Samuel Alito — along with Justice Gorsuch were instrumental in this monumental judgement. As my Facebook friend Michael Fanelli observed, these judges are:

“Partakers of the Priestly, Prophetic, and Kingly functions of the Church.”

SCOTUS pro-life judges - Feast of the Sacred Heart

The Catholic Chief Justice John Roberts wrote a separate opinion agreeing with the majority in essence, though seeking a “more measured course”.

Fr John Trigilio Jr, host of the long-running Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) TV show Web of Faith, posted on Facebook:

“On this feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, SCOTUS overruled Roe v Wade. POTUS however made his unequivocal support of abortion this afternoon. Both President Biden and Nancy Pelosi risk excommunication and should not be given Holy Communion. (Canon 915)”

Indeed, the fake Catholics in the White House, along with those judges who were in opposition, are a disgrace with their politically correct support of abortion “rights”.

Dr Gerard M Nadal, president and CEO of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, wrote:

“The decision was rendered on the Feast of the Sacred Heart, a heart that burns with the fire of love for all involved in this great national tragedy. We need to pray for Biden and those who would further pervert our system of government and justice in the headlong pursuit of adding to the nation’s ghastly toll of lives prematurely ended, and parents left with the toxic residue of anger, guilt, and trauma.”

Solemn Feast

Sacred Heart - Child JesusJune may have a certain significance for those of a progressive bent, but to Catholics, it is the Month of the Sacred Heart, when we have a particular focus on the burning love of Jesus for humanity. The Feast of the Sacred Heart popularised the common heart (❤) symbol which we use today, which dates from the Middle Ages.

Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus can be traced to the writings of the early Church contemplating John 7:37-39 (Christ as the Living Water) and John 19:33-37 (the piercing of the crucified Christ), emphasising the infinite love of God bearing fruit in new life through our sanctification and salvation wrought by Jesus.

This devotion is founded on the Incarnation of the Second Person of the Holy Trinity. As Jesus is fully human as well as fully divine, every aspect of His human nature is worthy of adoration. At the same time, the Sacred Heart devotion encompasses the whole mystery of Christ, His entire being, and His Person as the Son of God, Who is Love.

In 1856, Pope Pius IX designated the Friday following the Feast of Corpus Christi (the Body of Christ/the Eucharist) as the Feast of the Sacred Heart.

Sacred Heart trumps JohnOrdinarily, 24 June is the Feast of the Nativity of St John the Baptist, born six months before his cousin Jesus (since his mother Elizabeth was six months pregnant when Mary went to visit her — Luke 1:36). The Bible records that when John was a preborn child in the womb, he bore witness to the presence of the Messiah in Mary’s womb (Luke 1:44), leaping for joy at the voice of Mary, the vessel bearing the Holy One, just as David leapt for joy before the Ark of the Covenant (2 Samuel 6:16).

However, as Our Lord takes precedence, John’s feast was moved to the day preceding the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart this year.

June 24 is also the eve of the birthday of the founder of the March for Life, Nellie Gray.

What an appropriate day this is for the vanquishing of an evil law! God’s love triumphs over the selfishness of men and women, leading us along the path of life, not death.

 

Jubilee

My Greek Orthodox Facebook friend Seraphim Hamilton also pointed out that the 49 years between Roe v Wade and Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health — the ruling overturning the original judgement — is in line with the Jewish tradition of a jubilee year.

Recorded in Leviticus, a jubilee year is one where debts are forgiven, slaves and prisoners are freed, and God’s mercy is particularly manifest. The 49th year, the year at the end of seven cycles of shmita (Sabbatical years), is known as the Sabbath’s Sabbath; it is the Year of Release. How good is that?

Celebrations

Fr Blake Britten of Orlando, Florida, rejoices:

“My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is with joy on this feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus that we celebrate the overturning of Roe vs. Wade by the United States Supreme Court. After more than 50 years of prayer and fasting, the Lord has yet again reminded us that He is faithful to those who love Him and His mercy last from generation to generation. This is a great day for our nation as we take the first step towards respecting the liberty of individual states as well as restoring an appreciation for the dignity of human life from conception to natural death. Let us now begin the work of converting hearts and healing wounds with a continued spirit of steadfast love, compassion, understanding and peace. Praised be Jesus Christ now and forever! Sacred Heart of Jesus, Have Mercy on Us!”

Matt Fradd chimed in:

“Today, on the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, countless prayers were answered as the U.S. Supreme Court decided to overturn Roe v Wade. Let us now continue in prayers of thanksgiving and ask for peace in light of this decision. The darkness will never prevail!

Glory to Jesus Christ!

O most holy heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore You!”

giants fall on the Feast of the Sacred HeartCatholic evangelist Paul Kim wrote:

‘I can’t believe it. The day has finally arrived. Thank you God!

This doesn’t end abortion completely in our country, but it is an incredible blow against the silent genocide that has been taking place for the last 49 years and has destroyed the lives of over 60 million of our family members, friends, and neighbors who never got the chance to live. 13 states have automatic trigger laws that make abortion illegal immediately (or within a month). Now all of those babies who were in danger of being terminated have a fighting chance and moms who need support from pregnancy centers can actually get it instead of being told that “abortion will solve their problems”. It’s time to pray and work hard for those last 37 states to follow suit.

“You formed my inmost being. You knit me in my mother’s womb. I praise You, because I am wonderfully made; wonderful are Your works!” //
Psalms 139:13-14’

prolife Gorsuch

Praised be Jesus Christ, now and forever! May the Lord grant our American brothers and sisters the grace, strength and resources to rebuild a culture of life in their nation, a light for the world to see and follow.

    Is the whole house of immoral cards is about to fall?

    Quote: While the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade was written by Justice Samuel Alito, a concurring opinion in favor of the conservative majority by Justice Clarence Thomas raises fears that rulings protecting contraception and same-sex marriage could be overruled as well in the near term.

    “In future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents,” Thomas wrote, pointing to Griswold v. Connecticut (contraception), Lawrence (same-sex marriage), and Obergefell (same-sex marriage). “Because any substantive due process decision is ‘demonstrably erroneous,’ we have a duty to ‘correct the error’ established in those precedents.”

      Does that simply mean that those, too, would return to State legislative issues?
