Two unrelated topics today:
First, I returned to my son's doctor office with son in tow this morning and we went down the hallway to the abortion clinic and prayed. This time, we didn't go unnoticed. The doctor, himself, came out of the locked gate, looked at us praying, said nothing and continued on his way. I must say, we were relieved that he didn't confront us. I knew we were doing a good and holy act, however, I didn't want my son in a front row seat of a pro-choice/pro-life debate. I noticed my son said a quick thankful prayer to God for protecting us in that moment!
Secondly, I came across a blog last night that talked about Our Lady of Guadalupe being blasphemed at the Oakland Museum of California. Here is how Our Lady of Guadalupe is portrayed.... in a flower bikini with boxing gloves on. She is called Our Lady of Controversy in this so-called work of art. I didn't want to put the actual picture on my blog since it's so offensive. There's nothing beautiful, gracious or endearing about it and that's how I view Our Lady. Mocking Our Lord's Mother is a travesty and the artist, Alma Lopez is making money off of this front cover picture of her book and DVD.
If you feel so inclined (which I did), you can send an e-protest Here to the Oakland Museum of California.
