Parents will not stop protesting until Connexions is removed from schools

James Preece, the stalwart pro-life/pro-family Catholic blogger, has written a very important reminder about the presence of the anti-life/anti-family Connexions service in Catholic schools. James writes:
"Our local Catholic school has five full time Connexions advisors. An agreement is supposed to have been made that they won't promote contraception or refer for abortion while in the school, which is useless, because the whole point of Connexions is that they believe in doing these things confidentially. "
The Catholic bishops' conference of England and Wales, which employs the Catholic Education Service (CES), can be assured that the Catholic parents up and down the country will not quietly drop their protest against Connexions and the CES. We will never stop until Connexions and all other similar schemes are permanently barred from every Catholic school. And we will never stop our campaign for the CES to be radically reformed - starting with the appointment of Greg Pope, its deputy director - or abolished. In this work we will call down the strength of the Lord by praying with our Holy Father Pope Benedict his recently-composed prayer for the unborn:
Lord Jesus[,] Reawaken in us respect for every unborn life,
make us capable of seeing in the fruit of the maternal womb
the miraculous work of the Creator,
open our hearts to generously welcoming every child
that comes into life.

Bless all families,
sanctify the union of spouses,
render fruitful their love.

Accompany the choices of legislative assemblies
with the light of your Spirit,
so that peoples and nations may recognize and respect
the sacred nature of life, of every human life.


Together with Mary, Your Mother, the great believer,
in whose womb you took on our human nature,
we wait to receive from You, our Only True Good and Savior,
the strength to love and serve life,
in anticipation of living forever in You,
in communion with the Blessed Trinity. Amen
