Rick Santorum Reflects on His Son’s Death

10 Responses to Rick Santorum Reflects on His Son’s Death

  • Fantastic, inspiring. Santorum , the best for the US

  • I say Thank You for sharing this.

  • Here is a man with a tender heart. It is so wonderful to see and hear a man speak so intimately about his children. Even if he has a slim chance of winning the 2012 election, he should soldier on so that his voice is heard in the open market where he might not be allowed as a private citizen.

    We are covering you in prayer my friend. May your words be heard, and hearts changed.

  • I’m not the Santorum supporter I once was years ago, but I do appreciate his pro-life, pro-family Catholic witness.

    One of the more despicable things I’ve ever seen in politics was when Mark McKinnon (whose political allegiance has gone from Ann Richards to G.W. Bush to John McCain and ultimately to Obama) attacked Santorum as “dangerous”, “bizarre”, and “extreme” over this particular tragic incident in his family’s life.

    (To his credit, McKinnon later apologized for what he wrote in that column, but he’s still a scumbag as far as I’m concerned.)

  • More often than not these days “ignorance is bliss.”

    JA: I’m quite happy I never haerd of McKinnon.

  • here is a quote from great article from Ave Maria University about the battle going on
    “….Santorum shed light on the spiritual warfare manifested in politics, media, and culture.
    Quoting Bishop Samuel Aquila of Fargo, North Dakota, who boldly stated, “Catholics who support so-called ‘abortion rights’ support a false right, promote a culture of death and are guarded by the father of lies,” Santorum added, “While we all see this in a great political conflict between the Obama Campaign, McCain Campaign and cultural wars—what bishop Aquila put his finger on is that this is not a political war at all, or a cultural war—it is a spiritual war. And ‘the father of lies’ has set his sights set on none other than good, decent, powerful, influential United States of America. Santorum said the academic institutions were the first among those affected by corruption the– because of the temptation for “smart people” to “play with the truth and create new ones.” The origin of this corruption: pride, vanity and sensuality.
    “Now we are facing the external threats of radical Islam, another spiritual battle,” Santorum said, “this is in an age when our democratic presidential candidate, when asked in an interview with the Chicago Sun Times, ‘What is sin?’ His answer: ‘Being out of alignment with my values.’ Now we have the truly first post-modern presidential candidate… one who defines his own reality.”

    “It all sounds pretty hopeless, doesn’t it?” Santorum continued, “Why then, when times are so bad, are you all here at Ave Maria University?” Isn’t that great? Isn’t that great! It’s because when times are so bad God has asked you to be here at a time when he needs you the most!
    “My message to you today is that you will lose” Santorum said, “you will lose battle after battle; you will become frustrated, but do not lose hope. God will be faithful, if you are.”
