Harvesting the Fruits of contemplation (harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/)

Truth when coupled with faith in God is an invincible force for good.

Those who mock people of Faith, those who further the culture of death, those who portray pregnancy as an unwanted and unnecessary burden, those who exploit children and women for their own sexual gratification or monetary gain, those who market the murder of innocent human life - none of these folk are at all happy that this year's compelling pro-life film, Gimme Shelter, has made it to the theaters of this nation.

Movie 'Gimme Shelter' is powerful, a Must See movie!

CANASTOTA, NY - Truth powerfully and honestly depicted - either through a sonogram showing not a 'blob of tissues' but the beating heart of a living human being encased in a mother's womb or on the 'big screen' portraying the real life struggles of an abandoned, abused and homeless pregnant teenager who discovers hope, faith and love while courageously welcoming and protecting the life within her - is never welcomed by the purveyors of lies and deception. Truth can make these folk uncomfortable. Truth exposes their deception. Truth thwarts the plans of those who intend evil rather than good.Truth allows one to see hope and the possibility of a better future when others claim neither is possible. Truth when coupled with faith in God is an invincible force for good.This is a quality film. The subject matter is real and compelling. The acting is superb. Gimme Shelter has the capacity to change attitudes, lives and our nation.Stand up for Truth. Take a stand for the dignity and value of all human life.Go see this movie. Bring your friends and family. Insist that your local theater show Gimme Shelter.Then go out and do something concrete to help the pregnant teenagers and women in your community.(Take a peak at the Gimme Shelter trailer) Pope Francis calls for your 'prayer and action'...
