Faith Aloud, a St. Louis-based religious group that advocates for abortion rights, began an online petition drive calling on Akin to apologize. The Rev. Krista Taves of Emerson Unitarian Universalist Chapel in Ellisville said Akin’s comment “shows how very little he knows about liberals, and how very little he knows about God.” “I’m a liberal because I love God and all God’s creation,” Taves said. “ I value equality, fairness and compassionate justice because my faith informs my politics.”

catholicsanctum: Lift the City – a CatholicEucharistic flash mob  I wish this would happen in Raleigh. God bless these friars.Eucharistic Adoration is beautiful, and one of the best ways to honor God. You even see how, although confused, compelled or interested some of the non-Catholics in this video are. Are you kidding me?! Perhaps my most favorite of all videos. To have Our Blessed Lord meet us on our day would be most invigorating and faith-building. God bless these monks and God bless all who knew Our Lord at an instant – from the woman in the blue sweater (the first to kneel and the one giving aid to an elderly stranger to do the same) to the young child in the yellow hoodie who rapidly fell on his knees and inspired a friend to do the same. Tantum Ergo Tantum ergo Sacramentum Veneremur cernui: Et antiquum documentum Novo cedat ritui: Praestet fides supplementum Sensuum defectui. Genitori, Genitoque Laus et jubilatio, Salus, honor, virtus quoque Sit et benedictio: Procedenti ab utroque Compar sit laudatio. Amen. V. Panem de caelis[4] praestitisti eis.(T.P. Alleluja) R. Omne delectamentum in se habentem.(T.P. Alleluja) Oremus: Deus, qui nobis sub sacramento mirabili, passionis tuae memoriam reliquisti: tribue, quaesumus, ita nos corporis et sanguinis tui sacra mysteria venerari, ut redemptionis tuae fructum in nobis iugiter sentiamus. Qui vivis et regnas in saecula saeculorum. R. Amen
