2015 Church Bulletin Inserts


Give thanks 740x


ProLifeCorner-    Rockford Illinois-The liberal media has been silent on the revelations that Planned Parenthood is in the child killing and baby body selling business.  The Rockford Pro-Life Initiative is giving away free “Defund Planned Parenthood” bumper-stickers.

This is an easy and effective way to help the public know that killing babies and selling their body parts needs to be defunded and ended now.

If you would like a free bumper-sticker please email Kevin at everylifematters@comcast.net  and let him know how many you would like.

A Thanksgiving Blessing

A Thanksgiving Blessing

We take approximately 23,000 breaths every day, but when was the last time you Thanksgiving250xthanked God for one of them? The process of inhaling oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide is a complicated respiratory task that requires physiological precision. We tend to thank God for the things that take our breath away. And that’s fine. But maybe we should thank him for every other breath too!

Accept O Lord, our thanks and praise for all You have done for us. We thank You for…

The splendor of creation

The beauty of this world

The wonder of life and the mystery of love

For the blessing of family and friends

For Your loving care that surrounds us on every side

For setting us at task, which demands our best efforts

For leading us to accomplishments which satisfy and delight us

For disappointments and failures that lead us to acknowledge our dependence on You alone.

Above all, we thank Your Son Jesus Christ, For the Truth of His Word and for the example of His Life

For His steadfast obedience by which He overcame temptation,

For His dying through which He overcame death

For His rising to life again in which we are raised to life in Your Kingdom.

Grant us the gift of Your Holy Spirit

That we may know Him and make Him known,

And through Him at all times and in all places, give thanks to You in all things, Amen! Continue reading

The Kingdom of God Versus the Kingdom of Man

The Kingdom of God Versus the Kingdom of Man

ProLifeCorner- Frank Munda-

If we refuse to be ruled by God and his laws, then God will allow us to be ruled by tyrants.

It is very difficult not to think about the evil in the world today. My wife Chris and I have spent the better part of the last 30 years talking about the evils of abortion. 9/11 bought a new form of terrorism into all of our lives. Often when I write of abortion, promiscuity, apathy, and the selfishness of the world I sometimes feel like the little brother who is pointing a finger at a sibling and crying out what he or she is doing wrong. I’ve even been told that I’m good at pointing out the problem, followed by “how about giving us some solutions.”  In this article, once again, I will not be able to offer any solutions, but thanks to a recent homily by Pastor Timothy Barr we might have a better sense of direction.

A Nation Gets The Kind Of Politicians It Deserves

A Nation Gets The Kind Of Politicians It Deserves

“A nation always gets the kind of politicians it deserves.  If a time ever comes when the religious Jews, Protestants and Catholics ever have to suffer under a totalitarian state, which would deny to them the right to worship God according to the light of their conscience, it will be because for years they thought it made no difference what kind of people represented them in Congress, and because they abandoned the spiritual in the realm of the temporal.”  Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

ProLifeCorner – 11-20-2015 – by Annarae – These words of Bishop Sheen certainly apply to us today.  What has brought our country to this selfish, apathetic state?  Let’s look back in history for a few years and see some of the causative factors of our moral decay. Continue reading

Planned Parenthood Dumps Babies in Landfill

Planned Parenthood Dumps Babies in Landfill

ProLifeCorner.com – 11-18-2015 – by Annarae –

Planned Parenthood continues its reign of terror and its crimes against humanity, and now against the environment.

The crimes of  Planned Parenthood have now surpassed Adolf Hitler and his murderous regime.

What is worse ? Those who commit these crimes, or those who continue to support this murderous Corporation?

I say even worse than what Planned Parenthood is doing are the politicians, major corporations i.e. Starbucks etc. and our friends and neighbors who continue to militantly defend and support this corporate slaughterhouse. Continue reading

Nativity Scenes Are Legal!

God Bless Those Who Served

God Bless Those Who Served

ProLifeCorner-Veterans Day 2015- Frank Munda-

DR EB with txtGod bless the men and women who served and are serving our country.  This is my prayer, not only on this Veterans Day but it should be offered every day.  What would our life be like without those who have served?  And it isn’t just those who so gallantly served in our Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard; we should also include those who serve us every day as police officers and firefighters.

When honoring those who served where do you start? World War II, Korea, Vietnam? I believe we have to go all the way back to 1776 and honor those courageous men and women who stood up against the tyranny of the British. Then it is a mind boggling journey through all the wars from that moment right on to today with our many present day struggles throughout the world, and especially in the Mideast. Volumes could be written about the dedication of those who served throughout this pain-filled history. Continue reading

Sacrificial Generosity – The Poor Widow’s Mite

Sacrificial Generosity – The Poor Widow’s Mite

ProLifeCorner-  Mark 12: 38-44

“For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but [this poor widow] from her poverty …”

It was a beautiful wedding reception: a simple, elegant supper with music and dancing. But the bride and groom arranged with the caterer to pack up the leftover food and bring it to the local soup kitchen. The bride and groom included a cake and bottles of sparkling cider. The couple made places of welcome for the poor at their wedding banquet.

With their kids gone, they have more room than they can use. So when the church calls asking for a place for a woman going through a break-up or a couple visiting for a funeral or parents whose child is being treated at a nearby medical center, they welcome them into their home. Other empty-nesters in the parish have been inspired by their example. Continue reading

Leftists are Tolerant as Long as You Agree with Them

Leftists are Tolerant as Long as You Agree with Them

 ProLifeCorner- by Frank Munda-  11- 7- 2015 – Leftists are tolerant as long as one agrees with them and if you don’t, they will crush you by any means. They will destroy your reputation. They will get you fired from your job. They will tell lies about you, slander your name, and do whatever they can to crush you like a grape.

Before I go into my article, I have to admit there are a few things in this world that I do not understand. For example, why do supposedly civilized, educated people pierce their bodies and get tattoos from head to toe? Why do the American people want to believe in UFOs and not believe in God? And thirdly, the thing that confuses me most of all is why do people drink Starbucks coffee? Continue reading

Some Good News: Five Abortion Clinics Shut Down

Some Good News: Five Abortion Clinics Shut Down

ProLifeCorner – 11-4-2015 – by Editor – Finally!   Some good news for a change.  Five-yes, that’s right, five-abortions clinics have shut down in the last five weeks.  How many babies will be saved because the butchers who destroy the lives of the unborn are now unable to use their death mills.  You will notice that the conditions is some of these clinics were filthy, as were the conditions at the now defunct NIWC in Rockford, Il.  Praise the Lord these places of horror are closed.  We need to continue our prayers that none of these mills will ever open again.
