Thank you Nestor for drawing my attention to the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India (CBCI) Diwali message, in these words: The Hindu festival, celebrated on Wednesday, November 7, this year in India, recalls the night when Lord Rama returned to his palace in Ayodhya with his wife Sita and brother Laxman after a 14-year exile. This represents the CBCI backing for Ayodhya !!!At the Holy Name Cathedral they usually have a Diwali “mass.” Regards, John

Some cities have drop off centers where mothers can leave there unwanted babies but this has done little to cut down the abortions. In researching the cost of an abortion I have found that it varies from State to State. Some States are as low as $400.00 to a high of about $1200,00 in the United States.
