Prayer Need & Update: Ireland

It occurred to me, that we now need to offer stronger prayer and sacrifice for this week - before Mr. Cowen meets with the rest of the EU officials. This prayer work maybe more important than the actual vote? I think so. Again, as I posted yesterday, the pressure is on...what will 'they' do next? We need to kick it up.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with confidence, I fly to you, O virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.

EU - Ireland & the Lisbon Treaty

They may all get it shoved upon them...
Irish leader under pressure to save treaty

"Brian Cowen is being urged to present a plan for reviving the treaty at the EU summit in Brussels this week, but he knows that if a second referendum were to result in failure it would bring down not only the treaty but his Government as well."

"EU leaders united over the weekend to insist that Mr Cowen had to show how the treaty could be saved, possibly with a rerun of the vote next year and extra guarantees for Ireland. Signs are emerging that some EU countries would consider forging ahead in a “two-speed Europe”, leaving Ireland and others behind."

Real People 1, Eurocrats 0
Irish voters have left Brian Cowen to face a hostile interrogation by his counterparts in Brussels this week

“The Irish people have spoken for the French people,” said Philippe de Villiers. “This vote signals a massive rejection of the anti-national and anti-democratic drift of the Europe of Brussels.

"Each time that people express themselves directly, their message is clear because they do not want a system that deprives them of sovereignty."

CA - Catholic Priests Prepared to Bless Same-Sex Marriage

Some churches open their doors to same-sex weddings

"Kerry Chaplin, a director at California Faith for Equality, a group which fights for same-sex marriage rights, says she knows at least one Catholic priest who will be marrying people and one Methodist minister who will defy her church's doctrine and bless same-sex marriages next week.

Antonio Salas, coordinator of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Catholics group at Newman Hall Holy Spirit parish in Berkeley, said he knows of renegade priests who have performed religious marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples."
