 “I found out I was pregnant and the first thing I thought was abortion, but I thank God that I have erased that idea from my head, because now I’m happy waiting for a baby. ” – Yesenia

 

Those are the very common thinking of many young who find themselves pregnant and alone.  When they are alone, where do they go? Who will help them close LIFE?

This young women found herself again pregnant and thinking of abortion  but an angle send her to La Casa Hogar.

 La Casa Hogar  is located in Mexico City  which provides a decent home to young single mothers and children in street situations to raise their quality of life through comprehensive assistance and human promotion based on fundamental values ​​of coexistence, as well as encouraging them to develop and become independent as healthy families.

 

house

La Casa Hogar para Madres Solteras AC was founded in Mexico in June 1993 and is located south of Mexico City. Its objective is to serve young mothers and their children, who due to socio-economic needs or disability problems, are unable to meet their basic subsistence and development requirements; providing medical or legal assistance, social orientation, funeral services, rehabilitation of drug-dependent minors, assistance and comprehensive care of street children and in matters of health, education, and legal assistance to unprotected single mothers.

In the first three months after giving birth, the mothers are in the House with their babies all day, without the need to go out to work in order to strengthen emotional ties with their children; in these cases the Home House covers all expenses of food, clothing, health and other expenses related to the mother and the baby.

These single mothers are girls and young mothers from 12 to 21 years old, with one child, whose age fluctuates between 0 to 5 years of age. These young mothers are eithe victims of human trafficking, with problems of drug use in treatment, unaccompanied migrants living with HIV in an asymptomatic phase. It currently has a population of 29 young mothers and 29 boys and girls as February 2015.

Yesenia is just one of many women who are  being assisted in the  La Casa Hogar.

 Her testimony is a sign that “the way to end abortion is love and solidarity with women who suffer this tragedy. Because a man comes and goes, but a baby never comes back, ” she said.

The Congregation of Slaves of the Sorrowful Virgin emerged in Guadalajara on May 22, 1920, and was founded by the young Rita Ruiz Velasco Íñiguez, who began working with women who, drowned in their sufferings, saw no possible solution. Thus, even today, after 97 years, this religious sisters continue their selfless work defending the life and dignity of women overwhelmed by problems.

“It should no longer be frowned upon to be a single mother, on the contrary, to prevent a crime against a helpless being from being committed is a great act of courage. In this sense we want to support and therefore we will continue to pray for society to unite and give voice to those who do not have it, “said the nun.

Here is a beautiful video in Spanish about this amazing work of merciful Love!

We are heading to Mexico City this Christmas season and would like to bring them suitcases filled with much-needed supplies. 

We will be traveling there on December 19th and we will physically bring these supplies to the Home.

Please consider in donating to this great cause of Pro-Life in action.

IF you donate at least $20, we will mail you a “rose rosary” from the Villa of Guadalupe .

Protectress of the Unborn

April 24th  reports what may have been an unusual luminosity in the famed image of Mary at the Shrine of Guadalupe in Mexico City immediately after that city legalized abortion.

An engineer, Luis Girault, who has studied the picture thus produced, has confirmed the authenticity of the negative, and has been able to specify that it had not been either modified nor altered, by superimposition of another image for example,” stated the priest. “He discovered that the image (the picture produced) does not come from any reflection, but literally comes from the inside of the image of the Virgin. The produced light is very white, pure and intense, different from habitual photographic lights produced by flashes. This light is encircled with a halo and appears to float inside the abdomen of the Virgin. This halo has the form and measurements of an embryo. In effect if we again examine more precisely this picture by making it turn in a sagittal plan, we perceive inside the halo some areas of shade that have the characteristics of a human embryo in the maternal womb.”

 

 

 

 Our Lady  is  hurting,  Our Lord cries.  These sisters are taking into action Our Lord’s merciful love to these young  mother who choose LIFE.

 

We have a deadline of December 15th to give us enough time to shop for the supplies.

The funds raise will be use to buy baby clothes, diapers, supplies of that nature. They were also hit by the earthquake and thankful their damage wasn’t too physical.  Any money not use for supplies will be given to the Sisters . 

These single mothers are getting a chance to change the course of their future and their children so to be able to success in this life and give to others.

We are also donating 100 of our Pro-life Precious feet and Our Lady of Sorrow for the sisters to either sell them or give them away to the children.

We ask that you help us bring some peace and love from abroad to the this home and the sisters. 

We can truly be an act of Merciful Love this Christmas.  May the Baby Jesus live your hearts and homes this Christmas and everyday!

 

With the love of Christ,

Pro-Life Wednesday Hair Bows 4 life the Blog

 


“Respect for life requires that science and technology should always be at the service of man and his integral development.  Society as a whole must respect, defend and promote the dignity of every human person, at every moment and in every condition of that person’s life.” (Evangelium Vitae)

October 22nd is the Feast of St.Pope John Paul II ,  the pope that change the world by giving us Divine Mercy and his knowledge of Love, Sex, and Beauty of LIFE!

He fought and taught us how to end the “Culture of Death” and live out the Culture of Life until the every end of  his life!  I will never forget the moment he die.  We were attending a conference on Life Issues and at the moment of his death, we were listening to a speaker talk about how to let one die with dignity.    Who else show us that than Pope John Paul II!

“. . . we are facing an enormous and dramatic clash between good and evil, death and life, the “culture of death” and the “culture of life”. We find ourselves not only faced with but necessarily in the midst of this conflict: we are all involved and we all share in it, with the inescapable responsibility of choosing to be unconditionally pro-life.” (Evangelium Vitae

 

He challenged us and still does to keep on working this battle against the unborn at all cost! 

Take these 40 Days of Life and put into action with prayer and fasting  any simple way to defend Life!  

 

Being actively pro-life doesn’t just mean being out in the face of this evil.  Many people are not able to be out in front of the abortion clinics or so but there is still so much one can do from home.

5 Ways to being pro-life at home Hair Bows 4 Life the Blog

You are called to stand up for life! To respect and defend the mystery of life always and everywhere, including the lives of unborn babies, giving real help and encouragement to mothers in difficult situations. You are called to work and pray against abortion. – Pope John Paul II

 

Today is the Feast Day of St. Luke,  “the  Gospel of Mercy” as St.Pope John Paul II calls  it. 

Image result for st.luke

We need a merciful love towards everyone especially those who work at abortion clinics as nurses, doctors, and office staffs.   The organization ATTWN  is a great example of  living out God’s  mercy to abortion workers. They help them get out of this evil work into a place where they can heal, forgive themselves and protect other lives!

 

We need to take the example of this great saint into our daily lives as we keep joy in our homes, love in our hearts, and others in our mind. 

 We need to live out as Pope John Paul II always would say to the young..

BE NOT AFRAID!

Pro-Life Wednesday: 40 Days for LIFE!

40  is an amazing number as we can see just in the bible , in pregnancy,  in society  Big “40” , in lent.

Therefore,  it makes sense that 40 Days for Life is making amazing  results against  abortion!

 

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion

 In 1998, in town Bryan/College Station, where Planned Parenthood opened an abortion center. People of the faith there didn’t want this there so they started to show up and pray. But sadly, there was no end result.  A few gathered around a table and for one hour pray how they can close down this, how can they really help to end abortion in 2004.

It’s an amazing story, their book is worthy to be on your book shelve, 40 Days for Life – Discover What God Has Done…Imagine What He Can Do – Expanded Edition.

 

 

During that hour of prayer, they found themselves drawn to the timeframe of 40 days—a timeframe God consistently uses throughout salvation history to transform His people. How might God transform Bryan/College Station in 40 days?

As that hour of prayer progressed, the four individuals felt themselves called to launch a 40 day campaign of PRAYER AND FASTING, COMMUNITY OUTREACH, AND A CONSTANT, PEACEFUL VIGIL to end abortion. They also vowed that even if no one else would join them, together they would cover the entire 40 day, 960 hour, around-the-clock vigil.

Finally, they gave their new project a name: 40 Days for Life.

The campaign results exceeded all expectations. In less than six weeks, more than 1,000 new volunteers helped ensure all 960 hours of the vigil were covered. A grassroots, door-to-door effort reached more than 25,000 households. The campaign made local, state and national news. And the local abortion rate dropped by 28 percent.

 

The power of prayer and fasting.

Many people have asked, what can I do to end abortion, I’m just a stay home mom or grandmother or teen, I am only one person.

That one person has so much power with prayer and fasting!

Prayer:

One can pray anywhere for the end of abortion, for the abortion workers, for those babies.  One can set up a time daily to pray just for the end of abortion. Use your phone as a reminder. 

Prayer to End Abortion

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life, 
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.

I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion, 
Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death 
by the Resurrection of Your Son.

I am ready to do my part in ending abortion. 
Today I commit myself 
Never to be silent, 
Never to be passive, 
Never to be forgetful of the unborn.

I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, 
And never to stop defending life 
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected, 
And our nation once again becomes 
A nation with liberty and justice 
Not just for some, but for all.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen!

 

During 40 days to Life, one is  to unite all prayers to  specific request so all united as one, one body of Christ: 

  • Women who are at risk of having an abortion

  • Innocent children who are at risk of perishing

  • Men and women who carry the pain of a past abortion experience

  • Workers at Planned Parenthood facilities and abortion centers

  • Local, regional, and national leaders

  • Revival and renewal in our churches

  • Repentance and healing throughout our nation

FASTING

Christ told us some demons can only be driven out by prayer and fasting. The two go hand in hand. Prayer keeps us rooted in the fact that it is our desire to carry out God’s will. Fasting is a sacrifice that helps us reach beyond our own limitations with God’s help.- 40 Days to Life

Fasting isn’t a diet , is an amazing powerful prayer to help one unit their prayers to God.  One doesn’t need to just fast from food but one can also fast from other activities TV, social media, sleeping in.  Pray about what you want to fast from these 40 days.

We have witness in the bible from Christ, that prayer and fast has the power to drive out demons.  Abortion is a demon!

 

Community :

There are many locations throughout the United States and even the world that groups are coming together for these 40 Days to Life at abortion centers.   You can look for a location on their map here.

If you don’t see one already formed, maybe God is calling you to start one. This would be a great opportunity for home-school groups, youth groups, families to be a witness to the defense of the unborn.

 

The next 40 days to Life starts next Wednesday September 27 to November 5th!  

The results have been amazing but there is never enough results to make one stop.

13,305 Lives Save from abortion , 154 abortion workers quit their jobs, and 86 abortion centers closed!

 

Yet, we can’t stop until each unborn baby, each mother, each father, will be safe , will heal and will fight to end the war on life!

 

During the 40 days to Life,  all proceeds from any pro-life items will be donated to 40 Days to Life!

 

 

With the Love of Christ,

Happy feast day of St. Joachim & St. Anne : A NFP (Personal Story) Awareness.

Today, the church honors the parents of Our Blessed Mother, St. Joachim and St. Anne, grandparents to Our Lord. 

We are bless to know that we have St. Joachim and St. Anne as patron saints of  grandparents and infertile couples.  

Perfect time as  we are also in the midst of NFP Awareness Week, Natural Family Planning.

   NFP as stated by NFP Interenational is ,

NFP is a way of following God’s plan for achieving and/or avoiding pregnancy. It consists of ways to achieve or to avoid pregnancy using the physical means that God has built into human nature.

The key point here is following God’s plan and some times, God’s plan doesn’t go along with our plan.   I can understand that to core of my being .   Our NFP story isn’t much to tell really.   We didn’t really focus on it before we got married nor did we think 4 months later, we would be blessed with being pregnant.  All my life, All I dream of was to have a large family to fully love .   

My case with NFP wasn’t always a happy one. I have to say that I had a love-hate relationship with it.  I mean I thought, I am pro-life, open to life always, why did I need NFP.

 But God in his great wisdom shares with me another take on NFP. 

I imagine that it was going to be easy  to have more children.  Then we lost our very first son, Pablo de Cruz .   It was a surprise pregnancy (I think all pregnancy are a surprise)  yet again but one that we were so happy to see! The lost was a cut to core of my soul.   NFP got really interesting since I really wanted to know what was going on with my body, why was I not pregnant again.  We use NFP to help us achieve pregnancy with our  healthy son. 

  After our son was born, we were yet blessed again with a pregnancy 8 months later which I gave birth to sweet baby girl.  There was no time nor energy to really get into the NFP  and 20 months later baby girl number 3.  

I felt that I was living my dream, even thu it was crazy with 3 kids in diapers at one time and a six-year-old but I love it. Every minute it. I wanted more. 

A year later after our latest baby girl was born, we lost a girl, Martha .  It was hard times for me. It took a lot of time with NFP and trying to follow God’s plan.  Fast forward two more years, pregnant with a sweet baby boy who never seen the beauty of this side of heaven .  Losing Benditico was the most suffering I had ever endure in my whole life.  No- one was meant to  deliver a silent baby,  NO-ONE was to endure that. 

But in His greatest wisdom, He holds us through our suffering so that we can bring souls to His Mercy. 

God must have really needed my suffering for some great cause that one day I pray that I will truly understand as once again,  a year and half later, we lost our last son, Juan Deigo. 

For a very long time, I felt so alone in the sense since I had four beautiful children whom am I to feel the pain of sub-infertile ,  to complain, to ache , to want more.  I felt, I had too many for the  secular world and not enough for the Catholic world…

There wasn’t much left in my core .  I took NFP as an enemy for whatever crazy reason.  I saw others who prevent pregnancy as selfish, lack of love.  I was dead wrong.  But since God out does us in generosity, He heal me in my brokenness and show me, that I don’t need another child,  I needed HIM! Him alone.  After that freeing moment , I never look at  NFP or anyone else situations  the same. 

I just looked with love and mercy.

After 8 long years,  I do have now a sweet baby girl who is the joy of my life along with her brother and 3 sisters. I am so blessed that I can’t even begin to count.   But I have felt the hell of not achieve pregnancy for a long time and losing part of my heart to my Heavenly children. I have pray  endlessly to  this couple whom we celebrate today!  

God is all good. His plan is perfect.

Now, remember we all have a story to tell, not inventory to count.

With the Love of Christ,

Pro-Life Wednesday: How some Coffee can save a life! Save the Stork!

Pro-Life Wednesday Hair Bows 4 life the Blog


When we started our business, Hair Bows 4 Life,  7 years ago,  our main goal really was to bring awareness to the beauty of LIFE .  We promised to donated at least 10% of each of our sales back into pro-life organizations that are at the front line of this war against the unborn.  We have estimated about a thousand or  more in donations. Now, that is really not a lot.  But it is something. Our business has had many growing pains and for few years it almost seem dead.  If you don’t give it water (love, time, hard work), it’s not going to grow.

Something happen this past April that has brought new life back into our small business. Or more like  the breath of the Holy Spirit came to bring this business back to life.  So we started to work at it hard, still working hard and  done a lot in these few months.  We gave it a new face-lift (no, seriously, we got a new cute spoke person) by updating the  website and bow style. We added more social media outlets such as this blog , twitter, Instagram, and added life to facebook page.  We actual have a business plan (who knew you should have a business plan… lol  ).   

 You see in April, I got a copy of a book, Business Boutique: A Woman’s Guide for Making Money Doing What She Loves  and started listening to Christy Wright’s  podcast and started to believe that Yes, it is possible to have a successful business so that we can do our “WHY”.   Our main ” WHY” behind this never-ending work is to promote the Gospel of LIFE all over the world.  We can’t support these organizations and others without making our business a serious ones. It was time to move away from it being a hobby.

God inspired me 7 years ago to start this, to bring sweet bows with saints and our Blessed Mother to heads of little girls all over as well promoting the beauty of the unborn!  He will ask me, what did I do , how well did I do what I was asked of.   

The reason why I am explaining  ourselves to you is that  we will be sharing with you on Pro-Life Wednesday , our Pro-Life Organization of the week. We will run it for two weeks  from a Wednesday to a Wednesday,  and whatever we make in sells, they will get a % .   We want to share with you our WHYs.   So that you will see these organizations that we are giving to.   There are so many amazing organizations that are working so hard in so many ways to defend LIFE at all stages!   

This week we bring you some coffee with a stork.

 

 

Have you seen these Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis vans?  They look amazing.  Well, some are being use for amazing work as in the Save the Storks Vans.  These vans are equipped with exam table, restroom, multiple seats for counseling, work space for sonogram machine and technician, multiple monitors and media inputs, a built-in iPad dock, internet connection, soft lighting, a mini refrigerator, air conditioning, and plenty of storage space.   

Mercedes-Benz works with Save the Stork in an exclusive contract  to build mobile pregnancy centers using a Sprinter chassis. Good job, Mercedes-Benz!

Save the Storks helps pregnancy centers get out and be mobile to help reach more mothers. To show these moms that there is more options than abortion.  Their mission is amazing:

We exist to partner with pregnancy resource centers and give abortion-vulnerable women a choice that will change their lives forever. We partner with resource centers all over the nation, providing them with powerful tools and training to more effectively connect with those women in their communities. With the support of people like you, we’ve funded 54 buses (35 are on the road and another 19 in production), and saved over 1,000 babies.

 

 

This amazing organization started with a couple,  Joe and Ann Baker, who vision  was to have mobile medical units across country to serve those women who were vulnerable to abortions due to the fact they were not given many options. When they see their babies on that screen majority of them choose LIFE. 

Their vision is  simple yet genius:  To have  a mobile medical unit equipped with a counseling area and a state-of-the-art ultrasound machine, which allows pregnancy centers to show mothers an image of their baby.  They want women to receive follow-up support with their local pregnancy centers  so they make sure centers own  and operate these vehicles as affiliates of Save the Storks.

They sell their own coffee !! Who doesn’t love coffee. I live on coffee!   They select beans from around the world that makes a flavorful and smooth cup. They make sure they know where the beans are coming from as they have visited these farms. They make sure they are sourced in a way that honors the local growers and harvesters as well. Part of the proceeds of the sale of coffee go towards

 helping moms make life-affirming decisions for their families and fueling a new generation of individuals passionate about the pro-life cause.

When you answer the call from God, He makes big things happen!  So please check them out , if you can donate directly to them .  We need more vans out in the front line fighting this war on LIFE.

We want to introduce our two new Pro-Life products that has been in the works and finally made it out to the store.  Now, there is something for the whole family to wear!

It is made with burlap ribbon attach to an alligator clip making it  easy to attach to dress shirt. There is a tiny silver-plated feet in a corner. This size represent the actually size of a 10-week baby in the womb. Amazing! 

Pro-life bows Hair Bows 4 Life

 

The red is to represent the blood that has been lost in the innocence of the unborn and their mothers.

We also came out with another new Pro-Life product for moms, grandmothers, all women, our Precious Life Lily Pin .  This lily flower has  a golden-plated precious feet center which it is attached on a broochel locked pin.

  

Please pray and fast to end abortion.  Please love, be compassion and take some type of action.

 

With His Merciful Love,

Pro-Life Wednesday: Darkness over Delaware

Pro-Life Wednesday Hair Bows 4 life the Blog


Darkness fell across the state of Delaware yesterday, as the House vote yes on SB 5 which will  legalize Late Term Abortions.

A late-term abortion is when the Child is too developed to be suctioned out via vacuum aspiration and instead requires a late-term D&E dismemberment procedure..  

My heart is so heavy that I can’t seem to move to a different thought than that of all the innocent lives who are at risk of death. The unborn babies were given a sentence to death by men and women in a suits. 

At one time, Delaware was our home and is now one of the most pro-death abortion state.  We now live in the state of Mississippi, one of the most pro-life states in the union.

I wonder what goes inside the minds of these men and women who voted yes to murder .  What happen?  Where did the evil close their eyes to the truth and beauty of LIFE?  

When I read about the bill detail last night, I noticed the time which the House passed this law was at 6:23pm.

I  couldn’t help but to look up in the Holy Bible, Matthew Chapter 6 verse 23.

23 But if your eye is diseased, your whole body will be darkness. If then, the light inside you is darkened, what darkness that will be!

 

What darkness it is!  But I will not let this darkness be the disease of my soul, of my peace, of my love.

No, we will keep fighting the good fight!!!  

After the post on the Zookeeper’s Wife, people asked, “How can I do more for the Pro-Life movement from home?”

Here are just somethings that can be done to keep on fighting this evil of darkness.

5 Ways to being pro-life at home Hair Bows 4 Life the Blog

 

  1. Pray and Fast.  Pick a day that you will pray and fast to end this evil. Pray for the abortion doctors, nurses, politicians.   Find their names. Pray for them by their names. Fast for them!  

  2.  Be the Light of Christ. Love. Have a merciful love for all humans. See Christ in everyone you meet. Smile. Love your family, first.

  3. Be Social. Use  social media what social media is best for. Spread the word.  Find some pro-life Facebook pages that inform you on the Pro-Life movement. Next, Share, Share, Share. 

  4. Adopt a baby. Spiritually adopt a baby. Give them a name. Pray for them.

  5. Support pro-life organizations that are in the front line of this battle for LIFE.  Give to them $5 , the cost of latte . Monthly, weekly? Whatever you can. Switch organizations. Make it a family event to read up on organizations and what they do and ask the kids to vote where to donate. Ask them to donate as well. 

 

Involve the whole family and start young so that it is in their nature (which it should be in everyone’s ones) to be pro-life and to defend ALL LIVES!

Pro-Life Wednesday: A Lethal force against Abortion with Love!

Pro-Life Wednesday Hair Bows 4 life the Blog

 


Have you ever thought that to end the war on abortion, we  can win it from the inside ? 

I truly believe that changing the laws of abortion, will not stop abortions.  Yes, many will be save due to the law but abortion will still go on.

WE need to change the hearts and lives of those on the inside!

Don’t we want to save that one sheep? 

Our Lord Jesus Christ, went out to find that one lost sheep while he had 99 sheep in this flock. He made a great point in say thing that He needed to find that one sheep.

While we fight to end the law of abortion and win over the hearts of those who are for it, we must do what it takes to find that one lost sheep.

That sheep is an abortion worker.

When I found this organization by Abby Jonhson called, And Then There Were None also at abortionworker.com ,  I saw the face of Christ looking for his lost sheep.

ATTWN is  nonprofit organization that exists to help abortion clinic workers leave the abortion industry.

ATTWN is pro-life without exceptions and support all peaceful pro-life efforts, ATTWN seeks to end abortion from the inside out.

You see, those abortion workers are human as well. Since we as pro-lifers believe that ALL lives Matter. Then these workers lives matter to Christ, matter to us. 

His mercy doesn’t pass judgment. His mercy is for all!

ATTWN shows His mercy to abortion workers. They help them get out of this evil work into a place where they can heal, forgive themselves and protect other lives!

6 Ways they help these lost sheep!

Financial: Once they finally get a worker’s proof of their resignation from the clinic, they provide one month of income replacement.  Money is almost the key to holding them to a job a bit longer. These workers can be single moms who have bills to pay. Transitional financial assistance is a key in helping them take that first step

Legal: These  workers have been a part of or witnessed illegal activity at their clinics. ATTWN have attorneys in all 50 states. They will offer them legal protection and representation.  Another plus to this has been that the lawyers have been use for testimony of the workers to close down abortion clinics.

Employment. They have a team  of professional resume writers and professional recruiters who help them find jobs in their city.  They also have a large list of  contacts in every city in America who are willing to hire these workers. Some are now working with pregnancy resource centers and helping women choose life. WOW!

Emotional: They assigned each worker to a Client Manager that will be there and help them through this painful journey toward healing and finding forgiveness.  They use a relationship-driven model of ministry as in listening, giving advice, praying, and offering other emotional support. Everything is private and if need be professional counseling is given.

Spiritual: Any worker that leaves this evil , this darkness heads to the light, a spiritual conversion. They connect them  to healthy, vibrant churches in their areas and Christian pastors who can help them continue to grow spiritually. Their Client Manager is also available to pray and provide spiritual support at any time, as much as needed.  There is also  a section where you can  partner with them with prayers.

Retreats: They will host all expense paid to healing retreats each year.  They have several ” phases” of retreats and they encourage all the former workers to join in the healing program.

Have you seen this movie?  Have you heard about this movie?  It was one of the most profound movie I have seen in a long time. Just watching the trailer again, stirs up emotions.  I don’t think it’s still out in the movies theaters, so keep an eye out for it on Redbox or Amazon (wherever you watch the latest movies).  Trust me on this and watch the movie.

This movie is based on the book, The Zookeeper’s Wife: A War Story . 

Summary metacritic: In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care. When their country is invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina are stunned – and forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl). To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance – and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.

So as I am watching this movie, I couldn’t help but to think, how brave this women and her husband are to risk it all for the lives of those whom they don’t even know (they had a few Jewish friends)

They hid over 300 Jewish people in their Zoo.  

It’s a powerful movie that was written and directed by a women. 

We are living in the greatest holocaust the world as ever know! Ever. Know.  It is hard to  compare or not  the holocaust to abortion

Jennifer Fulwier writes an excellent piece on this comparison and one of main points that really hit home to me was this:

At the root of both scourges is a particular strain of evil, the most virulent that the devil possesses. It is the kind of evil that works to take away the humanity of human beings. It whispers in the ears of one group of people who a certain other group of people are something less than human, less worthy of life because of race or religion or physical ability or age. And once this is accomplished, once a group of people have been thoroughly dehumanized in the mind of their society, evil can run wild while the populace yawns.

Johan Heldenbergh plays Jan Zabinski and Arnost Goldflam is orphanage director Dr. Janusz Korczak in ‘The Zookeeper’s Wife.’ (Focus Features)

Another hero in this story was Arnost Goldflam the orphanage director, a saint!

Zookeeper is telling Arnots that his car is right there. That he will help him escape right now. What does Arnots do? He becomes Christ. Another Jew becomes Christ-like, and goes with the children onto the gas chamber so that they will not feel alone in the end of their short life.  

He sacrifices himself for the sake of love.  He asks the zookeeper to help him make it a great joy getting on the train for the children.

It was one of the hardest part of the movie for myself.

This movie kept me thinking about my own actions (or lack of) in this fight against the evil of abortion.

I kept asking myself,  How can I be like the zookeeper’s wife (sometimes feels like I do live in a zoo) to the unborn?

Mother Teresa came to mind . 

Mother Teresa quote Hair bows 4 life the blog

Everyone is call to be a certain type of Zookeeper’s wife.  Everyone must do the right thing at the right time God has called them to do. 

Don’t stay silent. Always Pray, Fast, and Love.

Pro-Life Wednesday: Open to Life is also open to death!

Pro-Life Wednesday Hair Bows 4 life the Blog

Have you ever taken the word pro-life and thought the meaning of it?  When you look  up the definition of pro-life, you get “opposed to abortion”.  But being opposed to abortion is not being pro-life. There is so much more to pro-life than just being opposed to abortion.   Growing up, I never thought more to those words of pro-life than that simple definition; one opposed to abortion.  I believe millions of people think the same.  But LIFE has shown me that meaning  is so much more. 

When you come to think of it, the word itself is  just odd. PRO-LIFE.  Someone who supports  LIFE.  I never met someone who was dead being pro-life?  I mean if you are breathing chances are you are pro-life (yes, we have sadly the exception of millions who take their own life and its a sadness of its own). 

But I never thought in my life that being pro-life , an openness to LIFE also  meant  having an openness to DEATH. This  openness of death didn’t really hit home to me until the death of my third child.  Losing an unborn child is no stroll in the park at whatever stage that child is develop.   I have lost two children  borderline of the first and second trimester which one resulted in an emergency D&C and the other a natural passing of the baby at home.

However, when I experienced my third loss of my unborn baby late in the second trimester, I experiences a different meaning of being pro-life/openness to life.    I had to deliver this silent baby into my arms for a short time but forever in my heart.   God’s love and presences during one of the 2 hardest time in my life (so far) was so overwhelming beautiful.  This occurred during the start of Holy Week 2012 and to unit my suffering of losing my son with Mary was a gift in many ways from God. 

I learn the hardest way that being open to life meant I had to be open to death. It meant that I had to be open to the idea that my unborn baby might not see this side of earth but they would see greater beauty, truth, and love.

It was only 16 months later , that I had to experiences this openness to death yet again after losing another sweet baby boy, Juan Diego (his due date was December 12th).  During this time, I had come across a book that had a great impact of my healing beside God’s grace and prayers from family and friends, After Miscarriage: A Catholic Woman’s Companion to Healing & Hope .   Words have such power to bring healing and comfort to others and the stories and comfort in this book was amazing.  

I was inspired by God to start a miscarriage ministry where we can give any mother who needs to find some comfort after losing their unborn baby this book. Magnolia Miscarriage Ministry
