The Strong winds of Public Moral Opinion

As I try to unwind from my recent trip and mission to the United Nations Headquaters during the week of the Conference on Population and Development, my mind is still reeling in an attempt to fully unpack and understand the overwhelming show of strength and commitment of the Western developed countries (like France, Germany and Britain) to the so called "Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights" (SRHR) agenda. 
As one may already be able to guess, the 
SRHR is really the "love child" of the sexual revolution conceived in a deadly embrace with secularism. 
It is anti-religion, anti-family and anti-marriage. 
It's functional components would be contraception, abortion, homosexual lifestyle, divorce, premarital and extramarital sex all given free rein to reshape and reconfigure our world and civilisation. 
It cannot stand religion because of the moral codes and values therein, it does not like families because of the moral order required within the family, it is against parental rights and authority because of the guardrails that parents set out of love for their children, it cannot condone marriage because of the high requirements for fidelity. 
Such is the nature and texture of the sexual and reproductive health rights agenda which is now being pushed and promoted by these powerful nations. 

So as I thought long and hard to know how these western nations in question came to the point of moral madness and blindness, and also to see how close they really are to pushing the poorer/developing nations over the cultural cliff, I stumbled upon this eye-opening survey done by Pew Research Center in 2013 . 
In my opinion, it gives a vivid snapshot view of global morality. This survey was conducted by asking 40,000 respondents in 40 countries what they thought about the most common sexual moral indicators that are most discussed around the world including: extramarital affairs,homosexual lifestyle, abortion, premarital sex,divorce, and the use of contraceptives.
For each of these important moral issues, respondents were asked whether it is morally acceptable, morally unacceptable, or not a moral issue at all. 

This revealing survey shows the deep seated moral decadence in countries like France, Britain, Germany, Spain and even Italy. 
It reveals, the incredible proportions of people in the western societies who embrace abortion as morally acceptable, and the shocking numbers who insist that extramarital sex is acceptable and the overwhelming majority who claim that premarital sex is acceptable. 
These nations have sold their moral compass for nothing in return as they continue to destroy and  demolish the solid support systems like faith, family and marriage. 
The heart breaking thing is that children born into these societies are immediately immersed in this decadent universe that has been devised and designed by faithless and selfish adults. 

Reflecting and tying this study to my arduous week at the UNHQ I have extrapolated some explanations as to why all week-long, the ideologically-driven developed nations continued plotting, prodding and pushing more morally inclined nations to imbibe their morally skewed ways. 
And I can say with much resolve that the time has come for people of goodwill to take an unequivocal stance now in order to oppose this rising moral corruption that seems to be surging through the veins of these countries.
We can no longer take our cue from them, we can no longer entrust our innocent children to them, we can no longer learn from them, because they have become deeply entrenched in the quicksand of moral decadence. 

Without further ado, I would share with you some of the telling facts and figures that emerged from this important survey. 

For purpose of simplicity, I will accentuate the percentage of people in the various countries who find the moral indicators unacceptable. 
Therefore the higher the percentage, the more morally inclined a country is and vice versa. 

Views on Abortion :
The best and most morally outstanding countries are: 
-The Philippines where 92% of the people find abortion morally unacceptable 
-Ghana also comes up with a fantastic 92% 
-Indonesia comes next with 89% rejecting abortion 

The worst countries with regards to abortion: 
-France where only 14% of the people find abortion morally unacceptable
-Czech Republic only 18% find abortion unacceptable 
-Germany comes next with only 19% of the people rejecting abortion as morally unacceptable 
Britain has only 25% of surveyed population who think abortion is morally unacceptable 

Interestingly the USA did much better with almost 50% of the surveyed population rejecting abortion as unacceptable 

Most of the surveyed African countries (Uganda, Nigeria and Kenya) scored really high with more than 80% who consider abortion to be morally unacceptable. 
This is exactly why we have to strive to keep legal abortion out of Africa! 

Views on Premarital Sex: 
The best and most morally outstanding countries are: 
-Indonesia with 97% considering premarital sex as morally unacceptable 
-Jordan also came up with a fantastic 95% 
-Pakistan and Palestine territory comes next with 94% rejecting the idea of premarital sex 

The worst countries with regards to premarital sex:  
-France and Germany where only 6% of the people find premarital sex morally unacceptable
-Then Spain follows closely with only 8% who consider premarital sex as unacceptable 
-Czech Republic comes next with only 10%  

Again the African nations come up strong with Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and Uganda scoring 86%, 79%, 77% and 77% respectively. 

South Africa where abortion is legal and the so called "comprehensive sexuality education" is being spoon-fed to school children, shows moral dilapidation and disintegration at 48%
This goes to show that even strong and beautiful cultural values can be eroded when Africans start to open their doors and laws to sexually skewed views. 

Views on Homosexuality (homosexual acts and lifestyle) 
The best and most morally outstanding countries are: 
- Ghana comes up solid with an overwhelming 98% of the people denouncing the homosexual lifestyle as morally unacceptable 
-Egypt and Jordan come up next with 95% each 
-Palestine and Uganda follow with 94% and 93% respectively 

The weakest countries with regards to homosexual lifestyle: 
-Spain where only 6% of the people consider homosexual acts as morally unacceptable
-Germany had only 8% 
-Czech Republic and France had only 14% who consider homosexual acts as morally unacceptable 
Canada, Britain and Australia also had unbelievable low numbers (less than 20% each) of people who consider homosexual acts as morally unacceptable. 

Moral Views on Divorce: 
The morally outstanding countries are: 
-Ghana towers over all with 80% of their people denouncing divorce as morally unacceptable 
-Uganda comes next with a fantastic 76% 
-Pakistan comes next with a strong 73% 

The worst countries with regards to divorce: 
-Spain stoops lowest with only 4% of the people who see divorce as morally unacceptable
-France is not much better with only 5% 
-Jordan surprisingly turns up almost as weak with 6% 
-Next comes Germany and Egypt at 7% 

The next category is almost too shocking to consider but it is just as revelatory as other indicators of general public morality in various countries. 
This is the view on extramarital sex/affair 
It is true that even the most selfish and cruel pro-abortion zealots expect fidelity in their marriages. Even though they are usually "liberal" about premarital sex and contraception, they still somehow expect that their spouses who were most likely sexually active with them outside the bonds of marriage would "miraculously" turn up as the most faithful spouses when they are married. 
In any case this survey showed that most countries around the world still have strong public moral inclinations towards martial fidelity with almost 30 countries out of 40 showing above 70% of their people agreeing that extramarital sex is morally unacceptable. 
However, the most morally outstanding countries are: 
-Turkey and Palestinian territory with 94% each 
- then Jordan and Egypt came up with 93% 
-Lebanon came next with 92% 

The worst countries with regards to extramarital affairs: 
-France where only 47% of the people who consider extramarital sex as morally unacceptable 
-Germany was next with only 60% 
-Surprisingly India falls almost as low with 62% 
-and yes, Spain and Italy show their tasteless "liberal" flare with 64%

The sexual revolution is upon us and it is cruel and it is ugly and it is strong just as it is blood thirsty. 
Within its regime, women are objectified, unborn babies are killed, intact families are thorn apart, our cloak of sexual dignity is stripped from us. So we cannot afford to ignore the sexual revolution, we need to study it, and consider it and if we can, we need to flee its clutches whether we live in morally weak countries like Germany, France and Britain or even in morally strong countries in the heart of the African continent, we need to pay attention to the strong and violent winds of the sexual revolution.  
So , for anyone who has carefully considered the development of this all consuming and destructive revolution which continues to erode the integrity of every marriage, family and even faith-based civilisation in our world, it is clear to see that the seed and entry point for it was the  introduction and wide acceptance of contraception from country to country and from city to city, from village to village and yes from church to church. 
The Contraceptive culture led to the casual sex culture and then inevitably to the abortion culture, the divorce culture and is now ushering in the rabid homosexual culture. 
The contraceptive pill and accompanying mentality seeped into the consciousness of western civilisations without being detected or even opposed except by very few bold institutions like the Catholic Church. 
And just as many researchers have shown us, it has led to unintended medical side effects that could and has indeed lead many directly to the grave. But unbeknown to us all, the side effects have led far beyond the medical realm to the point of  devastating social, cultural and political side effects that are now turning our modern world into a sort if moral wasteland. 

This is why I was most eager and  interested to know how people in the surveyed countries consider the use of contraception because that might give good insight  and intel into the possible solutions to our global cultural crisis. 

With regards to contraception as a moral issue, every one of the 40 surveyed countries fell short as none stood above 70%, but the most morally outstanding countries are: 
-Pakistan with 65% of  the people seeing contraception as morally unacceptable 
-Nigeria (my own beloved nation) came next with 54% of the people still considering contraception as morally unacceptable 
-Ghana also came next with 52% 

Most other countries showed up weak below 40% 

However the very worst countries with regards to contraception: 
-Germany where only 1% of the people denounced contraception as morally unacceptable 
-Spain and Czech Republic fell almost as low with only 2% saying that contraception is morally unacceptable 
-Britain is almost as weak with only 3% of the people rejecting contraception

This is very telling with an undeniably vivid correlation between public moral views on contraception-extramarital sex-premarital sex-homosexual acts-divorce and abortion. 
These were the same countries (among many others) who I encountered at the UN two weeks ago where they peddled their SRHR and contraception agenda with unflinching determination. 

But, one thing that fills my heart with hope is that despite their frantic attempts to spread the arrows of their ideology, many of the African nations as well as the middle eastern nations are still tenaciously holding unto their deeply-rooted moral values. 
In this Pew-Research survey ,the moral strength of the Muslim countries stands out as formidable and the moral stamina of the African nations is commendable , thus ensuring that no matter the weight or pain of our prevailing economic and social limitations in the developing world, our children will be born into an authentic Culture of Life and they will be raised within a sure Civilisation of Love. 
It feels good to know that our little girls will grow up to be women who are loved and cherished in loving marriages that will not be subjected to the poison of divorce, that our sisters and aunties and friends will stand tall, confident and comfortable within the beauty glow of motherhood. And most importantly that our unborn babies will remain safe within the warm haven that every mother's womb was always supposed to be. 

So next time I find myself at the UN, I will not fear nor will I fret in the face of the morally compromised wealthy nations. 
Because our collective, public moral views are as formidable and commendable as strong winds that cannot be corrupted , no matter how hard they try!

The Great Mission Ahead

I would like to solicit your prayers for me as I have been given the great opportunity and privilege to be at the United Nations all through next week for a very important conference on Population and Development. 

My sincere hope and prayer is to continue to witness to the sanctity and dignity of human life from the moment of conception; and my intention is to continue to insist on the need for authentic development in Africa.
My task is to project as strongly as I can,  the African perspective on life, marriage, motherhood, faith and family.
I already know that this conference will be a rallying point for the pro-abortion and pro-contraception groups who are intent on spreading their own ideology, it will also be a hotspot for all the population control enthusiasts and philanthropists who are desperately seeking to depopulate the world. 
So please pray for me and for other pro-life and pro-family advocates who will be at the UN next week. 
The need for courage at this time is greater than ever in a world that is being heavily swerved and influenced by a radically distorted ideology. 
An ideology conceived and born to the sexual revolution. 
An ideology that is now boldly raising the "rights" to sex over and above the rights to life. 
An ideology which is seeking to neuter, sterilise and depopulate the world. 
An ideology which is deforming the family structure as we know it. 
An ideology which has reframed and redefined all that we know... human life, marriage, love, development, ethics, education, justice, sex, equality, freedom... All now redefined beyond recognition. 

Yes indeed, next week we will be contending with very powerful organisations resolutely committed to the global dissemination of this ideology. 
So again I would ask for your support and your prayers. 
I would also ask for you to stay very close and in fact accompany me on this special mission to the UN by being connected to our  Culture of Life Africa Facebook page as I intend to keep you updated during the conference - pictures, quick Facebook updates, blog posts ...all of it! 

I am also very humbled and happy to share with you that after attending the week-long events at the UN, I have been invited by the much beloved catholic network EWTN to be on their very popular TV show - EWTN Live.  
So I'll have the pure pleasure and delight of spending 2 days at the EWTN studios at Birmingham Alabama and I will have the honour of speaking with Fr Mitch Pacwa and (hopefully) some of the other amazing EWTN hosts. It will be for me a time of joy and excitement and also a time of prayer.
What a perfect end of my 2-weeks stay in the US. 

In the days ahead I know that I will have a tremendous amount of work, learning, encounters, friendships, reunions, challenges and collaborations. What will get me through will be a little bit of leisure with a heavy dose of prayers coming from all over. 
So please stay close. Stay close and experience all of it with me! 

Yours in all humility,

Ideologically-Driven Moral Rage

In the last two months, the western leaders have shown themselves to be modern day cultural imperialists. In their bitter disapproval they have pulled out their proverbial whip to crack down on the Nigerian and Ugandan Presidents who recently passed bills to prohibit the LGBT propaganda in their countries. 

We have heard of President Obama's "serious" considerations to withdraw aid and funding, we have seen Susan Rice's tweet about her long telephone call to dissuade Ugandan President, we have seen the British parliament threatening travel sanctions, there was also the recent EU vote to impose sanctions of these nations ... All because these 2 African nations refused to bend to the "sovereignty" and rage of the rainbow flag. 

They are willing to beat Africa and bend Africa and burn Africa until Africa submits her children and citizens to the re-education which is now very much underway in Europe and America. 
This re-education that will entail teaching our young ones that there is no real difference between men and women, that two mums can indeed marry to raise a "happy and gay" family, that surrogacy can solve the problem posed by natural law, that sex is all about self-actualisation. 
The re-education and re-configuration of the youngest minds with the potent toxin of the modern day "comprehensive sexuality education". 

Here is the thing... As President of United States (POTUS) claims the moral high grounds and unleashes his rage at the anti-LGBT bills in Africa , we can see that the beautiful and stylish First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS) is visiting and touring China where hundreds of millions of babies (born and unborn) have been killed under the One Child Policy, where men and women are being coercively sterilised everyday, where human rights are being severely abused, where millions have been denied their religious liberty. 
Why won't the FLOTUS fight for the rights of women and children?
Why do we not see the same moral rage of the western leaders? 

I cannot help but wonder if they reserve their reactions and sanctions to "unjust" bills, laws and policies only in Africa? 
In that case, we would sit back and wait to see what the POTUS will do in response to a new and most disgusting bill from his own African home country - Kenya. 
No, Kenya did not pass a bill to prohibit the LGBT agenda. 
As some valiant and heroic leaders in countries like Nigeria and Uganda vote to develop and pass bills that will protect life, motherhood and marriage, Kenyan MPs are busy voting to amend their new marriage bill to allow men to take as many wives as they like without consulting existing spouses. 
Yes, the same Kenyan Parliament that  changed Kenyan constitution 4 years ago to make legal room for Abortion-on-demand, are now promoting Polygamy! 
This is so very sad and heart-breaking to watch a beautiful African nation being led off the path of authentic civilisation. 
Polygamy. An undeniable step backwards which will endanger rather than engender authentic development in Kenya. An awkward marriage arrangement that has been shown to hurt women. 
And this is why we are hoping that the POTUS will find it in his heart to rise with the same zeal with which he took up the Nigerian and Ugandan Presidents, so as to denounce this polygamy bill and dissuade the leaders of his father's country to choose what is truly good for the women of Kenya. 
Unless of course he doesn't find the polygamy bill as distasteful as the anti-LGBT ones he is decrying in Uganda and Nigeria. Unless it's all about promoting the LGBT rights and ideology over and above real human rights. 

Our world, is spinning into a new orbit of distorted moral values.  
What we have always known to be good is now being labeled as hatred and phobia.  
What we have always known to be killing is now being re-branded as reproductive rights.
What we have always known to be disordered is now being touted as sexual choices and orientations. 
What we have always known to be immoral is now being raised and praised as sexual freedom. 
Indeed, we are in a new moral era that may not be conducive for our children and our children's children. 
We pray that more heroic African leaders will rise up among us to valiantly promote and defend all that is true, good and beautiful.

Uganda Refuses to bow to Social & Cultural Imperialism

In Europe and US, as far as the LGBT subculture is concerned, everyone is expected to blend in,those who cannot blend in must bend, and those who cannot bend will surely be broken and burnt for good measure.
In this way they have already broken so many. They have shut down businesses, closed down religious adoption services, terminated work contracts, sued dissidents, sacked workers, suspended movie stars,attacked churches, harassed Christian preachers, expelled students, threatened small businesses, punished big businesses , stifled free speech, taken away conscience rights and violated religious liberty. 
Yes, those who will not blend will bend , those who will not bend will be broken.  

So today as yet another African president has refused to bow before the rainbow flag, we pray that we do not get broken or burnt. 

Yes, Ugandan President has defied the raging leaders of the West and signed a bill that prohibits the festering of the LGBT subculture in his country. 
Africa upholds truth today, we recommend we all approach this with a lot of love and integrity, this is not about "hatred" or "homophobia", rather this should attest to the African commitment to promoting and upholding (at all costs) a healthy culture of life, love, faith and family for generations to come. 

Anyone who has a problem with the African insistence on traditional marriage could watch the very informative documentary entitled Cultural Imperialism (which can be found on this website). 
In a world that is on a very slippery slope, we need African leaders to stand strong and firm in upholding all that is true and good and beautiful for all Africans.

The totalitarian approach of the almighty social engineers

Back in December, we shared on this blog, the news about the courageous MP's of Uganda who overwhelmingly voted for a bill to stop or at least keep at bay in their country the worldwide push of the LGBT propaganda.
As a follow-up update on that, the Ugandan President Museveni has not yet signed that bill into law, no surprise there given the incredible amounts of pressure from some of the most powerful leaders in the world.
Up till now, the President of Uganda is still to decide on this bill amidst so much pressure. BBC has reported today that President Obama has warned Museveni not to sign the bill.

According to the report:
The US is one of Uganda's largest foreign aid donors, and in 2011 a small number of American troops were sent to help the Ugandan military fight the rebel Lord's Resistance Army.
But President Obama, who once referred to the proposed law as "odious", says this relationship will become more complicated if it is approved, describing it as an affront, and a danger to, Uganda's gay community.
America's National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, said on Twitter that she spoke at length with the Ugandan President Museveni on Saturday night to urge him not to sign the bill.

Also on the 5th of February 2014, the United Kingdom House of Commons made a very strong (and almost colonial) warning statement towards this bill.
Here is the statement of a former colonial master who is able to act very much "superior" to Africa:
"That this House calls on President Yoweri Museveni to return the Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Bill to parliament with the amendments proposed by Sexual Minorities Uganda's recent report, that is to amend sexual offences laws to make them gender neutral, to ensure a system of mandated reporting of all forms of suspected child abuse should be implemented, to address risk factors associated with all forms of child exploitation and abuse and to prevent discriminatory access to health laws; and further calls on the Government, if the Bill passes unamended, to consider which sanctions would be appropriate to impose on the Ugandan government, including travel bans on the promoters of this legislation and redirecting development assistance from Ugandan government-associated schemes to civil society organisations which support values consistent with the constitution of Uganda, the Commonwealth Charter and the African Charter on Human and People's Rights which enshrines the right to freedom from discrimination."

Culture of Life Africa Comments:
Africans should be alarmed at this point in our post-colonial history, as we are seeing long standing universal morals and values being redefined by the wealthiest and most powerful nations in the world who are somehow able to push for the right to kill unborn babies on the same page as the right to homosexual marriage.
To them a free woman is one who can decide to kill her own child before birth and a free adult is one who can form a family unit with a person of the same sex.
They show little or no concern for the children who would end up with 2 mums and possibly 4 grandmothers someday. They have little or no patience for cultures and religions that have moral objections to this new amorphous family structure that defies natural law in human sexuality. They have little or no thoughts on the social disintegration that is bound to follow in this new world where sexual immorality is given free reins. They show little or no considerations for the hundreds of thousands of polygamous and polyamourous men and women who may someday emerge from around the world to demand their own sexual rights. They pay little or no mind at all to the inevitable maximum exploitation that will come upon women through surrogacy and men through sperm donations. Yes, someone is going to have to provide the womb for male couples who want to start a family of their own and someone is going to have to provide the seed for the lesbian couples who crave motherhood - nature is very insistent on that! Bring all these into the material poverty of Africa and there will be the collapse of our civilisation and the complete deletion of our African culture.

Our world is brutally being reshaped by those who place sexual pleasure before common good and the right to sex before the right to life. Their plans and policies are causing great destruction of human life, faith, family. So it brings bitter tears to my eyes every time I realise that Africa is not allowed to protect her children from the ruthless hammer of these Social Engineers!

Efforts continue to Implant the Sexual and Reproductive Rights Agenda in Africa

Once again we see the "carbon footprints" of the pro-abortion team in Africa. As last week, a number of partners gathered together to host the Sixth Africa Conference on Sexual Health and Rights in Yaounde, Cameroon.
The conference is one of the many efforts to redefine,  replace or drown out real human rights and authentic development in Africa  with sexual and reproductive rights.
In the words of the organisers of this conference, they intend to "disseminate international declarations, charters and guidelines to civil society organizations to enhance their role in promoting sexual and reproductive rights."
 Most of  the core partners of this African conference were wealthy western organisations well known for their population control agenda as well as their commitment to promoting the world-wide radical sexual and reproductive rights agenda.
They are:
-The Ford Foundation 
-The International Planned Parenthood Federation Africa Region (IPPFAR)
-The International Women’s Health Coalition (IWHC)
-MacArthur Foundation
-Packard Foundation
-UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund
-Urgent Action Fund-Africa  (known for their activism to promote the LGBT propaganda in Africa, they also advocates for the decriminalization of sex workers and also abortion rights)

The conference ended with a call from U.N. Population Fund Deputy Director Kate Gilmore for African leaders to end all barriers that prevent women and girls from attaining their sexual and reproductive health "capacities" 

Following this conference , the Senior Regional Adviser, Advocacy and Policy, for the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) Africa region in an exclusive interview with PANA, spoke very strongly  to recommend that Misoprostol should be made widely available and within the reach of African women.
Misoprostol is a drug used for medical abortions , and in their rabid attack on motherhood, the IPPF and others are working so hard to infect the hearts and minds of the African women.

Culture of Life Africa Commentary: 
In Africa, there are is a great need for so many basic amenities, social infrastructure and authentic development, but with a lot of foreign aid and wealthy donors, a twisted ideology is being disseminated and forced upon the African people through all sorts of sponsored events, and conferences. On the other hand, there are so few events to undo the damage being done in Africa. Pro-Life and Pro-family events are so few and far between because of a lack of resources and also a lack of enthusiasm, but maybe the time has come for all people of goodwill to actively support and encourage more of these life affirming events, activities and conferences.

About UNFPA's Kate Gilmore...
We all remember this tweet from 3 months ago when Director Kate Gilmore said to African youth that "we need to put sex back into family planning". 
We hope that Ms Gilmore will refrain from promoting her western ideologies among Africans so that real development can be achieved in Africa

 As for the IPPF trying to push the distribution of a dangerous abortion inducing drug in a Continent that has 80% of its nations with pro-life laws, we'll just simply state that in Africa motherhood is celebrated and children are always considered blessings and precious gifts, so we are not looking for either medical or surgical techniques to kill these children when they are given.

Day 9 (February 8th) Novena

For the work and mission of Culture of Life Africa 


Today we pray for: 
-Culture of Life Africa 
- All the people of goodwill who generously work and collaborate with Culture of Life Africa 
-All the excellent organisations that collaborate with Culture of Life Africa in protecting the African people from the Culture of Death 
-All the upcoming missions, events and activities of Culture of Life Africa aimed at propagating the message of life and dignity in Africa 

At this time, when the threat of the Culture of Death is real and imminent in the undeniable attempts to limit, suppress and even destroy the source of human life, Culture of Life Africa was founded to preserve and promote, through good information, education and sensitisation, an authentic Culture of Life and Civilization of Love for the people of Africa. 

The proponents of the Culture of Death continue trying to ensnare and enslave Africa, they are doing this in their increasing numbers of "aid" projects dedicated to "family planning" as a most important point in development for the African people, in their morally objectionable condom-campaigns among the young and impressionable African youth, in the tireless efforts of the well-funded foreign Abortion Lobbyists pushing African nations towards legalised abortion and in the unconscionable insistence of the LGBT activists to impose their ideologies in Africa. 
With all these forces raising a cultural storm on the Continent of Africa, the calling and mission of Culture of Life Africa is to raise awareness and encourage the Africans within this storm, to hold fast unto their Culture of Life that recognises the sanctity of life from the womb, their celebration of motherhood, their love of family and their remarkable faith. 

On this anniversary day of Culture of Life Africa, we humbly ask for your prayers because our mission is not an easy one. We need fortitude, fidelity and good friendships on this journey. 
So for all of this, let us ask for the help and intercession of our beloved friend and Patron Saint Josephine Bakhita whose feast day is also today, may she stand with us and pray for us in our mission against cultural enslavement of the African people...

​St. Josephine Bakhita, you were sold into slavery as a child and endured untold hardship and suffering. Once liberated from your physical enslavement, you found true redemption in your encounter with Christ and his Church. 
O St. Josephine Bakhita, assist all those who are trapped in a state of slavery; intercede with God on their behalf so that they will be released from their chains of captivity. 
Those whom man enslaves, let God set free. 
Provide comfort to survivors of slavery and let them look to you as an example of hope and faith. Help all survivors find healing from their wounds. 
We ask for your prayers and intercessions for those enslaved among us.     

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, 
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Day 8 (February 7th) Novena

For the strengthening of the people of Africa 

Today we prayerfully remember: 
-African women who are constanstantly blessing and nourishing their communities with their feminine gifts and charisms 
-African men who seek to protect and provide for their families with much courage and fortitude
-African youth who are so malleable and impressionable by any culture they encounter 
-African governments who are sometimes mislead and misguided in their governance of the people 
-African families who are suffering and struggling with all sorts of difficulties (poverty, unemployment, disease, famine, draught, violence, war) 

Africa is a beautiful Continent which is home to people of different tribes and tongues. 
But even as the Africans are diverse in culture and language, they are held together by the fabric of life, love, faith and family.
The people of Africa by tradition respect human life, celebrate human love, hold unto faith in their God and value family. 
This is the fabric that holds the Africans together, this is the common language in Africa that transcends tongues and dialects, this is the joy and cheer of the people who wake up each day to harsh conditions and difficult situations. 
But in a world that is getting smaller and becoming a global village, Africa is now being led and lured by some of the western nations and organisations, to a cultural cliff beyond which there is a distorted view of human love, a disrespect for human life, a disregard for faith, a disdain for traditional family structure.  
The pull towards this cliff is great and the need of the people is great, so our beautiful fabric is about to be rent and torn to pieces by those who are full of empty promises that will enslave the men, women and children of Africa. 

Today, for the sake of the African people, we turn our hearts in supplication to our beloved African Saint Josephine Bakhita . That she would advocate powerfully in the presence of God for the Continent of Africa to hold unto her fabric of faith, family, life and love.


​St. Josephine Bakhita, you were sold into slavery as a child and endured untold hardship and suffering. Once liberated from your physical enslavement, you found true redemption in your encounter with Christ and his Church. 
O St. Josephine Bakhita, assist all those who are trapped in a state of slavery; intercede with God on their behalf so that they will be released from their chains of captivity. 
Those whom man enslaves, let God set free. 
Provide comfort to survivors of slavery and let them look to you as an example of hope and faith. Help all survivors find healing from their wounds. 
We ask for your prayers and intercessions for those enslaved among us.     

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, 
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Day 7 (February 6th) Novena

Today is a perfect day to pray for:
-our families
-our friends 

We have been granted the privilege to hear and heed the message of Life, Love and Dignity within the culture and community we find ourselves. 
But most of us have, at some point in life, been afflicted and affected by the culture of death around us. Most of us carry upon our hearts scars and even open wounds for which we need the healing mercy of God. 
Some of us are still tethered to memories, thoughts or real situations that have us trapped and bound.   
Abortion, Contraception, sterilisation, sexual exploitation, pornography, divorce, homosexual lifestyle, 
We are part of the society and so have been affect by one or more of these painful edges of this modern day culture. 
We too need to be freed and healed so that we can courageously go about the work of defending life and dignity of every human being from conception to natural death. 

Today we pray for the help and intercession of Saint Josephine Bakhita that those of us who have been wounded and weakened may become freed and fortified in our respect for life. 


​St. Josephine Bakhita, you were sold into slavery as a child and endured untold hardship and suffering. Once liberated from your physical enslavement, you found true redemption in your encounter with Christ and his Church. 
O St. Josephine Bakhita, assist all those who are trapped in a state of slavery; intercede with God on their behalf so that they will be released from their chains of captivity. 
Those whom man enslaves, let God set free. 
Provide comfort to survivors of slavery and let them look to you as an example of hope and faith. Help all survivors find healing from their wounds. 
We ask for your prayers and intercessions for those enslaved among us.     

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, 
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Day 6 (February 5th) Novena

For the Healing of all those wounded within the Culture of Death. 

Today, we remember the pain of: 
-post abortive women and men
-women and men sterilised against their will
-divorced men and women
-children of divorced parents 
-children in same-sex parent households 

There are so many walking wounded among us who have been hurt by the sharp edges of our hedonistic Culture.  They are the silent collateral damage who are seldom remembered as they suffer the brunt and pay the ultimate price for a culture that is founded on sexual pleasure and license. 
Many of them are young and innocent children whose rights and wellbeing  mean so little to the social engineers who are reshaping and redesigning the structure of the family unit. 
Some of these victims are ignorant and misinformed men and women who are lured into the den of sterilisation. 
There are the inconsolable women who are expected by the modern society to mourn silently for their babies lost in abortion. 
There are also the heart-broken men and women who are silently suffering the excruciating pain of divorce.
With the incredible numbers of abortions, forced sterilisations, divorce and (in most recent years) same-sex parent adoptions, this means we have many millions of silent but bleeding victims who are in need of healing. 

So for them, we approach our beloved Patron Saint Josephine Bakhita to bring the most tender mercy of God , to heal and help these silent victims of the hedonistic Culture of Death. 


​St. Josephine Bakhita, you were sold into slavery as a child and endured untold hardship and suffering. Once liberated from your physical enslavement, you found true redemption in your encounter with Christ and his Church. 
O St. Josephine Bakhita, assist all those who are trapped in a state of slavery; intercede with God on their behalf so that they will be released from their chains of captivity. 
Those whom man enslaves, let God set free. 
Provide comfort to survivors of slavery and let them look to you as an example of hope and faith. Help all survivors find healing from their wounds. 
We ask for your prayers and intercessions for those enslaved among us.     

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, 
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
