Luke 1,41 – Little John the Baptist at six months in the womb of his mother Elizabeth, leaps in her womb for joy, his mother being filled with the Holy Spirit and he being sanctified in the womb, the first miracle of grace of little Jesus, only hours after the conception of Jesus by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Immaculate and ever Virgin Mary, when she greeted Elizabeth.
Little John, only six months in the womb, is described in the inspired Greek text of Luke 1:41 as a βρέφος, brephos, that is, as a baby, a child, an infant, a youngster. In all other occurrences in the New Testament this word refers to already-born human beings.
- Luke 18:15 – children / youngsters
- Acts 7:19 – already born babies
- 1 Peter 2:2 – already born babies
So, what’s the deal with that? As it is, in the Sacred Scriptures, there is no distinction, ever, between human beings just conceived, at any stage in the womb, being born, just born, babies, infants, children, youngsters… all are human beings made in the image and likeness of God; all are to be respected as such… and this holds true with whatever other diverse terminology is used, whether throughout the Old Testament or the New.
I recall a monsignor who defended the use of abortifacients in the Catholic hospital emergency rooms of his diocese by saying about any just conceived baby: “It’s just so small, so, who’s going to notice? Who’s going to care?”
God cares. Any true believer cares. There is a heaven, but there is also a hell. Those who use abortifacients, who procure abortion, who kill their just being born or just born babies or infants, risk going straight to hell.
Some have said that moral responsibility is reduced for those who get vaccines researched on and/or developed from and/or tested on fully developed absolutely healthy human beings whose organs are removed while they themselves are being removed (caesarian section) in absolutely sterile laboratory conditions, you know, because:
- They are just so small, so who cares anyway!
- They are just so defenseless, so, like, that’s really cool!
- They are just so dead now, like, for a while, so – Hey! – we’re alive now, which means we’re better than they are!
- They are just so not me, and only I am important, so they can all die lest I might get sick.
None of those are “made up.” I heard all of those myself from “good” Catholics, pillars of the community, even nationally famous for being icons of orthodoxy. Makes me sick.
What really concerns me is how those people said what they said. Is not the blame to fall on those bishops and priests who have right through the decades pushed abortifacients and abortion and partial birth abortion and infanticide and who now, of course, push the murder vaccines? Yes. I think our dear Lord at the judgment will set his sights entirely on these hypocrites who hate Jesus in the womb, and Jesus, at the judgment, will ask His dear Immaculate Virgin Mother if she wants them in heaven. And what do you think she is going to say?
I hope the hypocrites undergo a huge conversion. Some of them have attended the Pontifical North American College in Rome as Seminarians. The exclamatory prayer of the NAC to our Lady is this:
- Monstra te esse Matrem! Show yourself to be a Mother!
It will take a huge conversion for those who have pushed for destruction of the fruit of the womb to ask dearest Mary to be a mother unto them. They will have to confess their sin. I hope they do confess their mafioso sin. But will there be anyone to absolve them after they have gotten rid of believing priests who could have given them an absolution?

This bears repeating:
“It will take a huge conversion for those who have pushed for destruction of the fruit of the womb to ask dearest Mary to be a mother unto them. They will have to confess their sin. But will there be anyone to absolve them after they have gotten rid of believing priests who could have given them an absolution?”
There is so much to unpack here!
“destruction of the fruit of the womb ”
This, most-chilling phrasing, wakes me up.
” I hope they do [confess] their mafioso sin. But..”
The folly of dismissing the remaining faithful priests will be their great petard by which they will be raised; to such a height, that they might catch a tiny glimpse of their beings end (that might have been) before the gravity of their actions completes the fall they have freely chosen for themselves.
Their foolish last words will be, “but our consciences have absolved us!”
I must be incredibly naïve because I always find myself shocked when I hear priests say things that are contrary to the faith.
I once went to confession and confessed that I used the Lord’s name in vain. The priest (whose name I do not remember) said, “that’s not I sin – I do that too”. I told him I thought it was a sin and that I didn’t want to be in hell with him. And I left. I went to confession in another church.
How do these nonconventional guys make it through he seminary?
Sometimes it seems they were the only ones let through. Yikes!
the gates of hell will not prevail against or destroy our church….it is promised in scripture
