Ang dasal natin na sana itong ating justices sa SC will be guided by wisdom, will be guided by their respect for life and their love for the Lord in this country to declare it [RH Law] as unconstitutional,” he said.

Mary, we entrust to your maternal care the cause of defending Life and Family! 
Hearken to our plea: Defeat the Culture of Death that is engulfing the world! 
Monstra te esse Matrem! 
Show unto us that you are our Mother! 


Lenten Pro-life Prayer
(Posted on CBCP for Life Facebook Page, April 4, 2014)

Father of all mercy,
We thank you for this season of grace and light.
We know that sin has blinded us.
Draw us ever closer to you, in prayer and penance.
Since you, O God, are light itself,
Give all your people a clearer understanding
Of what is sin, and what is virtue.
Grant in particular that we may see, as never before,
The profound dignity of every human life,
Including the vulnerable unborn children.
Give us grace to defend
Our brothers and sisters in the womb
By our prayers, our words,
And our self-sacrificing actions.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Mary, Mother of Life , pray for us!



Almighty God, we thank You for You willed for us to be the People that the Devil cannot trick, as it tricked Eve. 

We thank You for You gave us a Spirit-guided conscience that knew how the Ancient Enemy works, so we can distinguish the works of the Devil from what You want. 

We are battling today against the RH Law that promises the bounty of worldly life, the selfish bodily satisfaction and to the delightful heights of personal freedom, but is a sure road to the meltdown of our morality and of the righteous and noble picture of sexual intimacy and the holiness of the body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit and an inseparable aspect of our personhood. It cannot give us the life that You desire for us, a life of self-giving and self-restraint, of sacrifice and of good virtues. Most especially, the FULLNESS of Life promised by Your Son Jesus Christ, a blessed life that remains in Your Love for us, and in our Love for You. 

We realized that Earthly Happiness cannot help us. Riches cannot help us. Comfort cannot help us. Personal choices cannot help us, if all of these are received without Your favor and blessings.

We had been outwitted by the Devil again and again, but we acclaim that in every earthly battle against the Devil with You, we can never lose. If it even goes to the point of hurt, offense, getting ridiculed and destroyed, our earthly battle promises a heavenly reward and the cheers of the elect from age to age. Whatever happens, Lord, as long as we do and follow Your will, in the end we believe we shall receive the glorious crown as victors of the faith.

May our Mother, The Lady of Guadalupe, protect us and meet us along the way, as she meet the worried Juan Diego. May she assure us of the Blessing of Heaven, which comes from her Son and Your Only Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, from your company of the Most Holy Trinity. 

This we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The RH Law and the Promotion of Unnatural "Rights" - An Important Position Paper

An important document on the link between abortion and the RH Law

Pro-Life Pics: A Selection.

The following is an interesting selection of pictures / illustrations that Filipino Catholic pro-lifers have been circulating in through social media networks as part of the campaign versus the RH law. (Some of these were designed when the RH law was still the RH bill; nevertheless I have included them in this collection because of their relevance.) 

Whatever the outcome be of the fight over the RH law, it cannot be said that Filipino Catholic pro-lifers were idle, or did little to get their message across in "bite-sized" ways. This post is my small contribution to chronicling this aspect of the fight versus the RH law.
