Great News from Ireland!

Fr. Groeschel asked his audience to pray a Novena starting two Sundays ago for Ireland to reject the Lisbon Treaty that would give the EU a much stronger foothold there and well, everywhere else. I joined in the novena because the EU is a terrible thing. Here is a clip of the story from CWNews:

Dublin, Jun. 13, 2008 (CWNews.com) - Voters in Ireland have rejected the Lisbon Treaty, casting into doubt the drive for approval of a new and stronger constitution for the European Union.

.....

The Catholic bishops of Ireland had not taken a formal position on the Lisbon Treaty, but were generally regarded as strong favorable to the agreement. Pro-life and pro-family groups, on the other hand, were deeply suspicious of the treaty because it would have enhanced the power of the European Union, and added to pressure for Irish compliance with European policies that favored abortion and same-sex marriage.

Full Story.
