At this time the Irish polls have closed and the ballot counting is underway. Exit polls indicate that the snakes may have returned to Ireland, however we can still pray for a miracle. I join some blogging colleagues in wondering why Pope Francis has been so silent regarding this vote, considering that Ireland is (or was) one of a handful of countries that ban the baby-slaughter known as abortion. The pope certainly seemed to have enough words regarding our presidential election in 2016, but none regarding this crucial matter?
For that matter, where are the faux-prolifers who call themselves "New Pro-Life Movement" and "Rehumanize International"? Google them and search their sites and social media pages for one word about this referendum. Let me know if you find anything (giving url) because I couldn't find where they uttered a peep.
As I said, I believe the ballot-counting is still underway, or maybe it will commence tomorrow. Thus it's not too late to pray your rosaries and to all the Irish saints, that the Lord may preserve intact this lonely bastion for the babies.
“I know that the Lord wants the (Second Vatican) Council to make headway in the Church. Historians tell us that it takes 100 years for a Council to be applied. We are halfway there. So, if you want to help me, do whatever it takes to move the Council forward in the Church.” – Francis the Merciful
