Dear St. Luke friends, On this Solemnity of All Saints, Christ invites us to rejoice and celebrate with all the saints and angels in heaven.  Heaven is so vast and limitless and God desires to fill His Kingdom with all of His children.  He wants no one to be left behind.  God's loving plan for all, you and I included, is to transform us into His saints, no matter how dark and sinful our past is.  Our Merciful Savior, who is the embodiment of the Beatitudes, has given us these "blessed" rules to guide our life of holiness.  He loves us so much that He wants us all to be united ...

But there is hope: a new bill has been introduced that could help protect mothers and babies from chemical abo...
