"I am Lucy, one of the young nuns raped by the Serbian soldiers. I am writing to you, Mother, after what happened to my sisters Tatiana, Sandria, and me.
Allow me not to go into the details of the act. There are some experiences in life so atrocious that you cannot tell them to anyone but God, in whose service I had consecrated my life nearly a year ago.
My drama is not so much the humiliation that I suffered as a woman, not the incurable offense committed against my vocation as a religious, but the difficulty of having to incorporate into my faith an event that certainly forms part of the mysterious will of Him whom I have always considered my Divine Spouse.
Only a few days before, I had read "Dialogues of Carmelites" and spontaneously I asked our Lord to grant me the Read More...
From mailonline: "Doctors could lose their right to refuse to arrange abortions under proposals to be debated next month.
They would be compelled to send any woman requesting the procedure to an abortion clinic.
The growing number of doctors who have moral objections to abortion - 25 per cent refuse to sign consent forms for it - are furious with the proposal.
Some are considering legal action if, as expected, the move is ratified by the British Medical Association's policy-making body in July.
Roman Catholic doctors are particularly opposed to the move, saying it will make them complicit in something they believe is evil, but doctors of other faiths and no faith have also condemned it.
Dr Tony Cole, of the Catholic Medical Association, said: 'This would spell the death of Read More...

I suppose this comes as a surprise to those who are in denial of the evils of abortion but the world's leading expert on fetal pain at the University of Arkansas has concluded that babies in the womb can feel pain from an early stage of development. Such a finding may impact an upcoming vote regarding abortion in the U.K. which could ultimately tighten abortion laws and reduce the time limits to obtain an abortion.
From Telegraph.co.United Kingdom: "Prof Sunny Anand of the University of Arkansas will present his report into foetal pain to MPs discussing changes to abortion law on Monday night.
His research concludes that the part of a baby's brain that can feel pain develops before the legal abortion limit of 24 weeks.
It is the first time the abortion laws will have been reviewed in the Commons for nearly two decades.
Prof Stewart Campbell is also on the panel. He pioneered the use of 4D screening, which produces striking images of a baby in the womb.
Nadine Dorries, the Conservative backbencher and former nurse, will chair the Read More...
THE WAR ON THE CATHOLIC CONSCIENCE--PORTUGUESE GOVERNMENT ISSUES ULTAMATUM TO DOCTORS WHO REFUSE TO PERFORM ABORTIONS

The Court of Human Rights today confirmed Poland will have to pay compensation to a woman whose vision became impaired after being denied an abortion under Polish laws.
Poland had appealed an order to pay the woman 25,000 euros compensation and 14,000 euros in legal fees.
But the Court ruled that in refusing to allow an abortion, Poland had violated article 8 of the Convention on Human Rights.
As a traditionally Roman Catholic nation, Poland has one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the European Union. Women are permitted to terminate pregnancies only if the pregnancy poses a grave health risk, the foetus is severely deformed or the pregnancy is a result of rape.
As Alisa Craddock recently pointed out in Bellocution II the Death of Reason Malcolm Muggeridge once stated: "It took no more than three decades to transform a war crime into an act of Read More...
