The Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul

You can always tell when the Planned Parenthood clinic in Media is open by the groups of grim-faced people clustered outside holding grisly signs. It’s quite a scene, what with all the muttering, praying people; the clinic escorts; and a sad little statue of the Virgin Mary perched exemplarily on the sidewalk.

This clinic doesn’t even do abortions; so, righteous souls, what exactly is your beef?

And tell me this: why does your pro-life church mark saints’ days of death, instead of birth? Case in point: today, celebrating the crucifixion (head down) of St. Peter, and the beheading (with a sword) of St. Paul.
