The Archbishop referred to would be Vincenzo Paglia, who holds the distinction of heading both the Pontifical Academy for Life and the Pontifical Institute for Marriage and Family Sciences.
In the wake of the tragic death of Alfie Evans, the child victim of Britain’s progressively “benevolent” end of life care, some readers have suggested that we consider the role of Pope Francis in all this.
Some while back, Dr. Elizabeth Wickham of Lifetree (link in sidebar) pointed out that Pope Francis had gutted the Pontifical Academy for Life and had filled it with advocates for population control from abortion and contraception to end of life. Today, Dr. Wickham suggested that we consider the struggle of Alfie Evans and his family in the light of Pope Francis and his agenda at the Pontifical Academy for Life (PAV). I am very grateful for her timely reminder.
NOTE: There is a very bad picture after the break below. It is a picture on a mural in a Catholic Cathedral and it vividly expresses the truth about Pope Francis and his Pontifical Council for Life.
At 2.30 am on April 28th 2018 Alfie Evans, 23 months old, died in Liverpool.
The staff of the British City Hospital executed the death sentence of the British Supreme Court, with the endorsement of the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, detaching the little Alfie from the machines that kept him alive, in contempt of their parents’ wishes and protests public opinion from all over the world.
The infanticide committed in England starts to be legalized in all Western countries.
It is also to defend the threatened life of so many little Alfies, that the March for Life will take place in Rome May 19, 2018.
From the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Office for the Dead:
Ant: Let every spirit praise the Lord. V: I heard a voice from Heaven saying to me: R: Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord. Ant: I am the Resurrection and the Life. He that believeth in Me, though he be dead shall live, and every one that liveth and believeth in Me shall never die.
May Alfie’s soul, and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
Until now, we have not posted on little Alfie Evans, because such wonderful coverage has been given, especially by Lifesite News. However, on Sandro Magister’s blog, we see a miracle before our eyes and a very clear representation of the immensity of the battle being waged between the dark forces currently in control – ably represented by Judge Anthony Hayden, LGBT activist and anti-life proponent – and the innocent child, Alfie Evans who has become an icon of the innocent victims of the hateful ideology of death now consuming this world. We present a few excerpts of Magister’s post and refer readers to his site, here, for the entirety.
Little Alfie was supposed to have died over the span of a few minutes, once the respirator was disconnected. With the medical “comforts” of the case. “Placed with care on the laps of Mr Evans and Ms James, if they desire.” And “after the death has been confirmed, the family will be able to wash him, dress him, and spend time with him.”
But this is not what happened. Because even without the oxygen tube, which was removed at 10:17 PM on Monday, April 23, Alfie continued to breathe. On his own. For hours and hours. To the point that the next day the physicians of the hospital – resoundingly discredited by the facts – had to give back his oxygen, water, and food. “A miracle of prayer,” said Francis Cavina, the bishop who on April 18 had gone with Alfie’s father to the pope, for “a little warrior who wants to live.”
That Monday of the fourth week of Easter, many had gone into action to stop those who wanted to put Alfie to death. In Rome, the pediatric hospital of the Bambino Gesù, owned by the Holy See, was ready to welcome and care for him. The Vatican secretariat of state had already been at work for a number of days, at the explicit order of the pope. The government in Rome had given the child Italian citizenship and had activated its own embassy and consulates in the United Kingdom. The president of the Bambino Gesù, Mariella Enoc, had gone in person to Liverpool, while a special airplane was ready to take off from Rome with a medical team on board.
