ProLifeCorner.com- Jan 29 2014- I have some friends, Catholic and non-Catholic alike who do not understand what the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is. A dear friend of ours recently based his sermon on the writings of Catalina Rivas. She was given a profound understanding of what the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass really is. As a lifelong Catholic, I must admit that after reading this booklet I now attend the Mass in a more participating openness to what is really transpiring. We present this writing in the hope that practicing Catholics will participate in the sacrifice of the Mass in a more humble, reverent way. It is also presented not to convert our Protestant brothers and sisters, but hopefully to show them that the Mass is not a ritualistic hocus-pocus that some have come to believe.
Love and Mercy publications offer well over a dozen books printed in English and in Spanish and they’re absolutely free to download as a PDF document. Catalina Rivas, is a housewife and grandmother from Cochabamba, Bolivia. Continue reading

Categorical Singularity and the Existential Case for the Fetus.
by Broderick Hooker – Underneath the catchy phrases that are used by both sides of the abortion debate, underneath the very concrete cases and well worn arguments lies a certain set of assumptions and a particular paradigm that is necessary to accept either side as embodying the truth.

ProLifeCorner- Beaumont Alberta Canada- By Mark Pickup- I remember sitting with my father in a boat on the middle of a still prairie lake. It was August of 1969 and I was sixteen years old. A cool mist rose from the surface of the lake that August morning. Fishing was good just after sunrise and so there we sat still half-asleep, casting our lines into the water.
It was the last summer he and I would have together. I think we both suspected it. Dad suffered a terrible series of devastating heart attacks the year earlier. My family almost lost him. He was only a shell of his former robust self; his health was destroyed. Continue reading
