KELLY: What do you think?


Lent is an excellent time for all people to renew their personal life, to renew their baptismal vows and to rededicate themselves to living their life as the Lord wants you to. This applies to everyone, not just the other guy. If you do so you will have a happy life.

I would like to remind the young people of a few things: marriage is between a man and a woman, and its purpose is to have children and thus enable the human race to grow and survive. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise. When you marry, you pledge your love to each other and the vow you take is unto death do you part. It’s very tough, but not impossible. My friend Pete was married 68 years before his wife Mary died. He considers his decision to take Mary as his wife the best decision he ever made.  


For those young men and women who have let immorality control their lives, Lent is a wonderful time to turn your life around. With prayer and sacrifice, you can do it. Jesus is in the work of forgiveness. Those young women who find themselves pregnant, unwed and thinking about an abortion, please consider these facts:

• Eighteen days – a baby’s heart begins to beat.

• Forty-three days – the brain coordinates movements.

• Eight weeks – all organs are functioning.

• Nine weeks – the baby has permanent, individual fingerprints.

• Ten weeks – the baby has a sense of touch (comfort/pain)

• Twelve weeks – a baby can smile, suck his/her thumb and make a fist.

Your beautiful son’s or daughter’s life began at conception and deserves a life of its own. Do not believe otherwise. If you find it impossible to keep your child, consider adoption. A childless couple will adopt your baby and give it a wonderful life. Do not the words “adoption” and “life” sound a lot better than “murder” and “death?”
