St Maria Goretti ORA PRO NOBIS


Please, any British Catholics who are worried about the moves by our Government to make sex education compulsory for children as young as five years old, sign this petition to our Bishops, as soon as possible - THE VERY IDEA OF THIS SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ALLOWED.
Here is what the petition says -
Petition to the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales
Do you wish to sign this petition? Add your name to the list here .
We, the undersigned, respectfully petition the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales to protest in the strongest terms against the latest Government proposals which seek to make sex and relationship education compulsory for children from age 5 upwards. We believe, in line with the constant teaching of the Church, that such education at so early an age could only have a severely detrimental effect on the children involved, on family life and on society in general. We call upon you as our Shepherds in the Faith to issue an authoritative statement on the Church's teaching on this matter, and to declare that you, as our Bishops, oppose any attempt to undermine the sanctity of the parent-child relationship, the innocence of the child, and our God-given parental authority in such crucial matters.
Download a copy of the petition. Download a copy of the letter we are planning to send to the Bishops.
Thank you for your support.

Goodness gracious! This saddens my heart so, so deeply. Nothing's sacred anymore. By the grace of God, I pray my children will never have to be exposed to such things.

Excuse me for interrupting such an important post for such trivial matters - but I've tagged you with a meme on my blog. :-)

We’d be most grateful if you would post about three forthcoming Latin Masses in Ireland:

Also, we’d be very grateful if you would put our blog on your list of blogs.

God bless you!
