In the newspapers you read numbers of this one and that one being killed, this being destroyed, but nobody speaks of the millions of little ones who have been conceived to the same life as you and I, to the life of God, and we say nothing, we allow it. To me the nations who have legalized abortion, they are the poorest nations. And here I ask you, in the name of these little ones, for it was that unborn child that recognized the presence of Jesus when Mary came to visit Elizabeth, her cousin.
As we read in the gospel, the moment Mary came into the house, the little one in the womb of his mother, lift with joy, recognized the Prince of Peace. And so today, let us here make a strong resolution, we are going to save every little child, every unborn child, give them a chance to be born. Love begins at home. And love to be true has to hurt. I never forget a little child who taught me a very beautiful lesson.
They heard in Calcutta, the children, that Mother Teresa had no sugar for her children, and this little one, Hindu boy four years old, he went home and he told his parents: I will not eat sugar for three days, I will give my sugar to Mother Teresa. How much a little child can give.
After three days they brought into our house, and there was this little one who could scarcely pronounce my name, he loved with great love, he loved until it hurt. And remember to love them until it hurts. Sometime ago, this to you will sound very strange, but I brought a God child from the street, and I could see in the face of the child that the child was hungry. God knows how many days that not eaten. So I give her a piece of bread. And then the little one started eating the bread crumb by crumb. And I said to the child, eat the bread, eat the bread.

This is a reality, and yet there is a greatness of the poor. One evening a gentleman came to our house and said, there is a Hindu family and the eight children have not eaten for a long time. Do something for them. She took the rice from my hand, she divided into two and she went out. When she came back, I asked her, where did you go? What did you do? And one answer she gave me: They are hungry also. She knew that the next door neighbor, a Muslim family, was hungry. What surprised me most, not that she gave the rice, but what surprised me most, that in her suffering, in her hunger, she knew that somebody else was hungry, and she had the courage to share, share the love.
And this is what I mean, I want you to love the poor, and never turn your back to the poor, for in turning your back to the poor, you are turning it to Christ. On 17 January , at the Battle of Falkirk Muir , 8, Scots, the largest number of troops gathered by the Jacobite cause during the uprising defeated 7, British troops. The manoeuvres of the armies of both sides in the war on the upper Elbe occupied all the summer. Meanwhile, the political questions of the imperial election and of an understanding between Prussia and Britain were pending.
The chief efforts of Austria were directed towards the valleys of the Main and of Lahn and Frankfurt , where the French and Austrian armies manoeuvred for a position from which to overawe the electoral body. Frederick agreed with Britain to recognise the election a few days later, but Maria Theresa would not conform to the Treaty of Breslau of , by which she had been forced to recognise Frederick's annexation of Silesia.
Maria Theresa now tried a further appeal to the fortunes of war to get Silesia back. Saxony joined Austria in this last attempt to reconquer Silesia. In May , The main Prussian army was stationed at Frankenstein. This army consisted of 59, soldiers and was fitted with 54 heavy cannons. Before he reached Reichenbach, Frederick learned that Prince Charles was crossing the mountains from the west to the east side and that Prince Charles planned to occupy the town of Hohenfriedberg. Accordingly, Frederick encamped his army at Schweidwitz and waited for Prince Charles to come to him.
At this site, Frederick laid a trap for the superior Austrian-Saxon forces. Indeed, Frederick was operating on the theory that "to catch a mouse, leave the trap open.
A new advance of Prince Charles quickly led to the Battle of Soor on 30 September , fought on ground destined to be famous in the Austro-Prussian War of Frederick commanded an army that at this time numbered only 20, soldiers in the vicinity of Soor. He was facing Prince Charles with an army of 41, troops. But the campaign was not ended. The danger was great. Frederick hurried his forces from Silesia and marched as rapidly as possible on Dresden , in Saxony. Prince Charles was thereby forced to abandon his plans to attack Silesia and hurry back to defend Saxony.
The latter took up a strong position at Kesselsdorf between Meissen and Dresden , but the veteran Leopold attacked him directly and without hesitation on 14 December The Saxons and their allies were completely routed after a hard struggle in the Battle of Kesselsdorf. Leopold and Frederick then linked up their forces and took Dresden without a struggle.
Maria Theresa was, at last, forced to give way. In the Treaty of Dresden signed on 25 December , she recognised Frederick's annexation of Silesia, as first recognised in the Peace of Breslau in In central Italy an army of Spaniards and Neapolitans was collected for the purpose of conquering the Milanese.

In , the allied army of 40, Spaniards and Neapolitans under the command of the Duke of Montmar had advanced towards Modena , the Duke of Modena had allied himself with them, but the vigilant Austrian commander, Count Otto Ferdinand von Traun had out-marched them, captured Modena and forced the Duke to make a separate peace. On 1 February , Schulenburg and Ormea signed the Convention of Turin which resolved or postponed resolution many differences and formed an alliance between the two countries.
On 19 August , Naples was forced by the arrival of a British naval squadron in Naples' own harbour, to withdraw her 10, troops from the Montemar force to provide for home defence. Observing from Venice , Rousseau hailed the Spanish retreat as "the finest military manoeuvre of the whole century. In the Italian war became serious. Prior to the War of the Spanish Succession — Spain and Austria had been ruled by the same Habsburg royal house. Consequently, the foreign policies of Austria and Spain in regards to Italy had a symmetry of interests and these interests were usually opposed to the interests of Bourbon controlled France.
Now the symmetry of foreign policy interests in regards to Italy existed between Bourbon France and Bourbon Spain with Habsburg Austria usually in opposition. However, in implementing this plan, the Gallispan generals at the front were hampered by the orders of their respective governments. For example, the commander of the Spanish army in the field, the Prince of Conti , could not get along with, or even reason with, the Marquis de La Mina , the Supreme commander of all Spanish forces.
The support of Genoa allowed a road into central Italy. But then the Austrian commander, Prince Lobkowitz took the offensive and drove the Spanish army of the Count de Gages further southward towards the Neapolitan frontier near the small town of Velletri. Velletri just happened to be the birthplace of Caesar Augustus , but now from June through August , Velletri became the scene of extensive military maneuvering between the French-Spanish army under the command of the Count Gages and the Austrian forces under the command of Prince Lobkowitz  The King of Naples the future Charles III of Spain was increasingly worried about the Austrian army operating so close to his borders and decided to assist the Spaniards.
Together a combined army of French, Spanish and Neapolitans surprised the Austrian army on the night of 16—17 June The Austrians were routed from three important hills around the town of Velletri during the attack. Because of this surprise attack, the combined army was able to take possession of the town of Velletri. Thus, the surprise attack has also been called the "first Battle of Velletri. In early August , the King of Naples paid a visit in person to the newly captured town of Velletri.
During the predawn hours of 11 August , about 6, Austrians under the direct command of Count Browne staged a surprise raid on the town of Velletri. They were attempting to abduct the King of Naples during his stay in the town. However, after occupying Velletri and searching the entire town, the Austrians found no hint of the King of Naples. The King had become aware of what was happening and had fled through a window of the palace where he was staying and rode off half-dressed on horseback out of the town.
The failure of the raid on Velletri meant that the Austrian march toward Naples was over. The defeated Austrians were ordered north where they could be used in the Piedmont of northern Italy to assist the King of Sardinia against the Prince of Conti. Count de Gages followed the Austrians north with a weak force. Meanwhile, the King of Naples returned home.
The war in the Alps and the Apennines had already been keenly contested before the Prince of Conti and the Gallispan army had come down out of the Alps. Conti then moved on to Demonte where on the night of 8—9 August , a mere 36 hours before the Spanish army in south of Italy fought the second Battle of Velletri, [as noted above] the Gallispan army took the fortress of Demonte from the Sardinians in the Battle of Demonte.
Thus, the Gallispan army never did combine with the Spanish army under Count of Gages in the south and now the Austro-Sardinian army lay between them. The campaign in Italy in was also no mere war of posts. The Convention of Turin of February described above , which established a provisional relationship between Austria and Sardinia had caused some consternation in the Republic of Genoa. However, when this provisional relationship was given a more durable and reliable character in the signing of the Treaty of Worms signed on 13 September ,  the government of Genoa became fearful.
This fear of diplomatic isolation had caused the Genoese Republic to abandon its neutrality in the war and join the Bourbon cause. On 26 June , Genoa declared war on Sardinia. Empress Maria Theresa, was frustrated with the failure of Lobkowitz to stop the advance of Gage. Accordingly, Lobkowitz was replaced with Count Schulenburg. Accordingly, Count de Gages moved from Modena towards Lucca , the Gallispan army in the Alps under the new command of Marshal Maillebois Prince Conti and Marshal Maillebois had exchanged commands over the winter of —  advanced through the Italian Riviera to the Tanaro.
In the middle of July , the two armies were at last concentrated between the Scrivia and the Tanaro. Together Count de Gage's army and the Gallispan army composed an unusually large number of 80, men. A swift march on Piacenza drew the Austrian commander thither and in his absence the allies fell upon and completely defeated the Sardinians at Bassignano on 27 September , a victory which was quickly followed by the capture of Alessandria , Valenza and Casale Monferrato.
Jomini calls the concentration of forces which effected the victory "Le plus remarquable de toute la Guerre". The complicated politics of Italy, however, are reflected in the fact that Count Maillebois was ultimately unable to turn his victory to account. The Gallispan winter quarters at Asti , Italy, were brusquely attacked and a French garrison of 6, men at Asti was forced to capitulate.
A series of minor actions thus completely destroyed the great concentration of Gallispan troops and the Austrians reconquered the duchy of Milan and took possession of much of northern Italy. The allies separated, Maillebois covering Liguria , the Spaniards marching against Browne. The latter was promptly and heavily reinforced and all that the Spaniards could do was to entrench themselves at Piacenza, Philip, the Spanish Infante as supreme commander calling up Maillebois to his aid.
The French, skilfully conducted and marching rapidly, joined forces once more, but their situation was critical, for only two marches behind them the army of the King of Sardinia was in pursuit, and before them lay the principal army of the Austrians. The pitched Battle of Piacenza on 16 June was hard fought but ended in an Austrian victory, with the Spanish army heavily mauled. That the army escaped at all was in the highest degree creditable to Maillebois and to his son and chief of staff.
Under their leadership the Gallispan army eluded both the Austrians and the Sardinians and defeated an Austrian corps in the Battle of Rottofreddo on 12 August Although the Austrian army was a mere shadow of its former self, when they returned to Genoa, the Austrians were soon in control of northern Italy. The Austrians occupied the Republic of Genoa on 6 September Soon Genoa revolted from the oppressive rule of the victors, rose and drove out the Austrians on 5—11 December A picked corps of the French army under the Chevalier de Belle-Isle the younger brother of Marshal Belle-Isle  was ordered to storm the fortified pass of Exilles on 10 July However, the defending army of the Worms allies Austria and Savoy handed the French army a crushing defeat at this battle, which became known as the Colle dell'Assietta.
The British and Dutch withdrew from Fontenoy in good order but the French-backed Jacobite rising of August, forced the British to transfer troops from Flanders to deal with it. By the end of , the French held the strategic towns of Ghent , Oudenarde , Bruges , and Dendermonde , as well as the ports of Ostend and Nieuwpoort , threatening Britain's links to the Low Countries. During , the French continued their advance into the Austrian Netherlands, taking Antwerp and then clearing Dutch and Austrian forces from the area between Brussels and the Meuse.
After defeating the Jacobite Rebellion at Culloden in April, the British launched a diversionary raid on Lorient in an unsuccessful attempt to divert French forces, while the new Austrian commander, Prince Charles of Lorraine, was defeated by Saxe at the Battle of Rocoux in October. The Dutch Republic itself was now in danger and in April , the French began reducing their Barrier fortresses along the border with the Austrian Netherlands. These events lent greater urgency to ongoing peace talks at the Congress of Breda , which took place to the sound of French artillery firing on Maastricht.
Maastricht surrendered on 7 May and on 18 October , the war ended with the signing of the Peace of Aix-la-Chapelle. Maria Theresa and Austria survived nearly status quo ante bellum , sacrificing only the territory of Silesia, which Austria conceded to Prussia, and a few minor territorial losses to Spain in northern Italy. While Austria was far from crippled, the loss of Silesia was, in great measure, a humiliating defeat for Austria's leadership of the German states within the Holy Roman Empire.
By contrast, Prussian gains nearly doubled the size of its economy, territory and population, while Frederick II's success as a commander soon earned him the epithet "Frederick the Great". This marked the beginning of the German dualism between Prussia and Austria, which would ultimately fuel German nationalism and the drive to unify Germany as a single entity. Despite his victories, Louis XV of France, who wanted to appear as an arbiter and statesman and not as a conqueror, gave all of his conquests back to his defeated enemies with honour, arguing that he was "King of France, not a merchant".
France definitely succeeded in humiliating Maria Theresa and her kingdom. But because of this France had bolstered Prussia's power, which would continue to grow, to France's later detriment. Twice during the war, Prussia had made peace with Austria without informing France, leading Louis XV to consider Frederick II of Prussia whom he already greatly disliked an untrustworthy ally.
Despite the long history of conflict between the Houses of Habsburg and Bourbon, he began to make overtures of alliance to Austria instead. Spain, in one way or another, managed to achieve some of her war aims, which mostly centred on an effort to reinstate Spanish influence in the Italian peninsula. Britain managed to get out of the war with a favorable settlement and on its own terms, which angered the Austrians; Britain's power was increasing and its interests becoming even more complex.
Realizing that Austria was no longer the sole hegemon of Central Europe, Britain decided to align itself with Prussia in order to protect Hanover from future French attack. This alliance however ended up destabilizing the continent, as the other great powers braced themselves with a counter grand alliance for an upcoming war that proved to be even grander in scale. The triumph of Prussia was in a great measure due to its fuller application of principles of tactics and discipline universally recognised though less universally enforced.
The other powers reorganised their forces after the war, not so much on the Prussian model as on the basis of a stricter application of known general principles. Prussia, moreover, was far ahead of all the other continental powers in administration, and over Austria, in particular, its advantage in this matter was almost decisive. Added to this was the personal ascendancy of Frederick as both monarch and commander, as opposed to generals who were responsible for their men to their individual sovereigns.
The war, like other conflicts of the time, featured an extraordinary disparity between the end and the means. The political schemes to be executed by the French and other armies were as grandiose as any of modern times.
The Ecstasy of Saint Theresa Story / Theme
Their execution, under the conditions of time and space, invariably fell short of expectations, and the history of the war proves, as that of the Seven Years' War was to prove, that the small standing army of the 18th century could conquer by degrees, but could not deliver a decisive blow.
Frederick alone, with a definite end and proportionate means to achieve it, succeeded. Less was to be expected when the armies were composed of allied contingents, sent to the war each for a different object. The allied national armies of at the Battle of Leipzig co-operated loyally, for they had much at stake and worked for a common object.
Those of represented the divergent private interests of the several dynasties, and achieved nothing. The war was also conducted in North America and India. In North America the conflict was known in the British colonies as King George's War , and did not begin until after formal war declarations of France and Britain reached the colonies in May The frontiers between New France and the British colonies of New England , New York , and Nova Scotia were the site of frequent small scale raids, primarily by French colonial troops and their Indian allies against British targets, although several attempts were made by British colonists to organise expeditions against New France.
A French expedition to recover Louisbourg in failed due to bad weather, disease, and the death of its commander. Louisbourg was returned to France in exchange for Madras , generating much anger among the British colonists, who felt they had eliminated a nest of privateers with its capture. The war marked the beginning of great power in England and the powerful struggle between Britain and France in India and of European military ascendancy and political intervention in the subcontinent. In September Bourdonnais landed his troops near Madras and laid siege to the port.
Although it was the main British settlement in the Carnatic , Madras was weakly fortified and had only a small garrison, reflecting the thoroughly commercial nature of the European presence in India hitherto. On 10 September, only six days after the arrival of the French force, Madras surrendered. The terms of the surrender agreed by Bourdonnais provided for the settlement to be ransomed back for a cash payment by the British East India Company.
However, this concession was opposed by Dupleix , the governor general of the Indian possessions of the Compagnie des Indes. When Bourdonnais was forced to leave India in October after the devastation of his squadron by a cyclone Dupleix reneged on the agreement.
The Nawab of the Carnatic Anwaruddin Muhammed Khan intervened in support of the British and advanced to retake Madras, but despite vast superiority in numbers his army was easily and bloodily crushed by the French, in the first demonstration of the gap in quality that had opened up between European and Indian armies. The first French force sent against Cuddalore was surprised and defeated nearby by the forces of the Nawab and the British garrison in December Early in a second expedition laid siege to Fort St David but withdrew on the arrival of a British naval squadron in March.
A final attempt in June avoided the fort and attacked the weakly fortified town of Cuddalore itself, but was routed by the British garrison. They enjoyed a considerable superiority in numbers over the defenders, but the settlement had been heavily fortified by Dupleix and after two months the siege was abandoned. The peace settlement brought the return of Madras to the British company, exchanged for Louisbourg in Canada.
However, the conflict between the two companies continued by proxy during the interval before the outbreak of the Seven Years' War , with British and French forces fighting on behalf of rival claimants to the thrones of Hyderabad and the Carnatic. The naval operations of this war were entangled with the War of Jenkins' Ear , which broke out in in consequence of the long disputes between Britain and Spain over their conflicting claims in America.
The war was remarkable for the prominence of privateering on both sides. It was carried on by the Spaniards in the West Indies with great success, and actively at home. The French were no less active in all seas. The British retaliated with vigour. The total number of captures by French and Spanish corsairs was in all probability larger than the list of British — as the French wit Voltaire drolly put it upon hearing his government's boast, namely, that more British merchants were taken because there were many more British merchant ships to take; but partly also because the British government had not yet begun to enforce the use of convoy so strictly as it did in later times.
A plan was laid for combined operations against the Spanish colonies from east and west. Delays, bad preparations, dockyard corruption, and the squabbles of the naval and military officers concerned caused the failure of a hopeful scheme. On 21 November , Admiral Vernon did, however, succeed in capturing the ill-defended Spanish harbour of Porto Bello in present-day Panama.
War of the Austrian Succession
When Vernon had been joined by Sir Chaloner Ogle with massive naval reinforcements and a strong body of troops, an attack was made on Cartagena de Indias in what is now Colombia 9 March — 24 April After two months of skilful defence by the Spanish, the British attack finally succumbed to a massive outbreak of disease and withdrew having suffered a dreadful loss of lives and ships. The war in the West Indies, after two other unsuccessful attacks had been made on Spanish territory, died down and did not revive until The expedition under Anson sailed late, was very ill-provided, and less strong than had been intended.
It consisted of six ships and left Britain on 18 September Anson returned alone with his flagship the Centurion on 15 June I hold it dear , truth? What a man , What an unpleasant surprise , What are we gonna do with you Kate?
