The League of Saint Peter Damian

 

The following message is from Mrs. Randy Engel, the author “The Rite of Sodomy” and founder of the U.S. Coalition for Life. Here is her announcement for a great new initiative.

February 16, 2019
From: Randy Engel

February 23 is the feast day on the Old Calendar of Saint Peter Damian, a Doctor of the Church and the author of the Book of Gomorrah (Letter 31).

This mailing anticipates this great feast day with the announcement of the formation of the Catholic League of Saint Peter Damian. It also anticipates the February 21-24th Vatican meeting on clerical sexual abuse, making this mailing exceptionally timely.

Because time is of the essence, the League of Saint Peter Damian is being initially organized as a special project of the U.S. Coalition for Life. If all goes well, next year, we hope to establish the League as an independent Catholic apostolate dedicated to increasing devotion to this great but little-known medieval saint and to making his writings, especially his treatise, Book of Gomorrah, better known to Catholics around the world.

Written in 1049 AD, the Book of Gomorrah work contains the most extensive treatment and condemnation ever written by any Church Father on clerical pederasty and homosexual practices.

In addition, the League seeks to ignite a universal campaign of spiritual warfare against the Forces of Organized Perversion which threaten our Faith, Family and Country – evils which can only be extinguished by prayer and fasting in the traditional Catholic manner.

Membership in the League, which by nature is now informal, is open to all Catholics – lay, clerical, and religious, over the age of 18. (see the Provisional Membership form below).

Hierarchical support for the League is especially welcome.

There is no monetary fee associated with membership at this time as the League of Saint Peter Damian, at least in these early stages of formation, is a computer-based ministry.

There is, however, a spiritual price tag associated with this early membership in the form of traditional Catholic devotions including the Rosary, the Fatima prayers, and the use of Sacramentals, most especially the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, in accordance with one’s circumstances and state of life.

Almost 1000 years ago, Saint Peter Damian with the support of Pope St. Leo IX waged a successful war against clerical sodomy and pederasty. Today, his Book of Gomorrah provides a blueprint for action by the Catholic Church against these same evils. This is only one of many reasons Saint Peter Damian is the ideal patron and model for our League.

As a [Provisional] member of the League you will receive monthly emails containing information and readings on the life, spirituality and writings of Saint Peter Damian. These will begin on March 23, 2019 and continue throughout the year. We hope you will share these email communications with your pastor, your bishop, relatives and friends.

To join the League of Saint Peter Damian please fill out the information provisional form below and return the application BY POST/MAIL to:

League of Saint Peter Damian, c/o USCL, Box 315, Export, PA 1563 USA. This will enable us to verify the mailing address on your application. My special appreciation to Canadian artist Peter Graziano who designed our logo.

Randy Engel, one of the nation’s top investigative reporters, began her journalistic career shortly after her graduation from the University of New York at Cortland, in 1961. A specialist in Vietnamese history and folklore, in 1963, she became the editor of “The Vietnam Journal”, the official publication of the Vietnam Refugee and Information Services, a national relief program in South Vietnam for war refugees and orphans based in Dayton, Ohio. She recorded for the Voice of America and Radio Saigon. In 1970, she received the Distinguished Service Medal for “exceptional and meritorious service to Vietnam.”

In addition to her writings and relief work on behalf of the VRIS, in the mid-1960s, Randy Engel developed an intense interest in pro-life issues including population control, abortion and eugenics, putting her on the ground floor of the emerging Pro-Life Movement. In 1972, she founded the U.S. Coalition for Life in Pittsburgh, Pa., an international pro-life research and investigative agency, and began editing the USCL’s official publication, the Pro-Life Reporter. Her four-year study on the eugenic policies and programs of the March of Dimes titled “Who Will Defend Michael?” quickly put the USCL on the map as the finest pro-life research agency in the U.S.

Her investigative findings documenting the rise of the federal government’s anti-life programs at home and abroad served as the basis for her testimony before Congressional hearings in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Randy Engel’s groundbreaking investigative findings related to US/AID abortion and sterilization programs in Latin and South America, Asia and Africa were instrumental in bringing about major pro-life changes in the Agency for International Development’s foreign assistance programs.

Many of her original research publications for the USCL including  “A March of Dimes Primer — the A-Z of Eugenic Abortion”, and “The Pathfinder Fund — A Study of US/AID Anti-Life Funding” have become pro-life classics and continue to enjoy wide circulation.

In 1995, the veteran pro-life researcher exposed the long-standing eugenic abortion record of Dr. Henry Foster, President Bill Clinton’s nominee for U.S. Surgeon General, resulting in the Senate’s failure to approve the nomination.

“Sex Education — The Final Plague“, Randy Engel’s first full-length book on the sexual conditioning of Catholic school children was published by Human Life International (Baltimore, MD) in 1989 and later by Tan Publishers (Rockville, IL). Her second book, “The McHugh Chronicles — Who Betrayed the Pro-Life Movement?” was published in 1997, while she continued to gather researching material and conduct interviews for “The Rite of Sodomy”.

Over the last forty years, Randy Engel’s articles, have appeared in numerous Catholic publications including “Liguorian Magazine”,  “Our Sunday Visitor”, “The Wanderer”, “Catholic Family News” and the “Homiletic and Pastoral Review”. She has received numerous awards for excellence in investigative journalism including the prestigious Linacre Quarterly Award for Distinguished Writing by the Catholic Medical Association.

Meticulous documentation and references and easy readability are the hallmarks of Randy Engel’s investigative writings, and “The Rite of Sodomy — Homosexuality and the Roman Catholic Church”  is no exception to the rule. The 1,318-page text contains over 3000 endnotes, a bibliography of over 350 books, is fully indexed and reads like a top-flight mystery thriller — except that it is not fiction — it is true.

NOTE:
Randy’s books (mentioned above plus more) can be purchased through Amazon and also through her publishing company, New Engel Publishing: LINK.
