Iowa Catholic Conference News updates

The Catholic bishops of Iowa have released a statement reviewing the 2017 Iowa legislative session.

ICC staff was pleased to be present when Gov. Branstad signed Senate File 471 on May 5. The bill prohibits abortion after 20 weeks post-fertilization with exceptions to save the life of the mother or for a serious physical health emergency. The ICC has been working on similar legislation since 2011 and it is the first limitation on abortion passed in Iowa for many years. You can check out a photo of the bill-signing on our website. The ACLU and Planned Parenthood received a court order blocking the waiting period while a trial court will decide the matter. The 20-week ban itself is in place.

During the past session, the ICC fought efforts to restore the death penalty in Iowa. We are continuing our long time collaboration with the Iowans Against the Death Penalty group.

We also encourage you to read and sign the
National Catholic Pledge to End the Death Penalty.

As we commemorate the 100 year anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima, we share this prophecy from Sister Lucia dos Santos, one of the seers who lived much longer after the other two.  Sr Lucia once wrote a letter to Cardinal Carlo Caffarra in which she spoke about a final battle between God and Satan:  “The final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family. Don’t be afraid, because anyone who operates for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be contended and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue. However, Our Lady has already crushed its head.”

Those fighting for life, marriage, and the family must remember that on May 13, 2017 — the 100th anniversary of Our Lady appearing in Fatima — the ultimate fight is about saving souls from hell. This means saving those enslaved to sexual sins and those who profit from sexual sins: the abortionist, the pornographer, the pimp, the prostitute. Our Lady of Fatima invited the children to help save souls through prayer and sacrifice.
Our Lady’s message about the reality of hell and the children’s example of what to do to help people from going there is something anyone fighting for life and family must take seriously. The prayer taught to the children should be constantly on our lips: “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have the most need of your mercy.”
