CCHD: It’s That Time of Year Again

2014 CCHD Catholic Campaign for Human Development report.

From ChurchMilitant.tv- It’s that time of year again – the Catholic Campaign for Human Development is going to be asking for YOUR money . . . and they’ll be spending it on things against the faith!

ProLifeCorner editors note:  As Michael Voris will explain in the short video below the problem with the CCHD has gone on for many years and they have been misappropriating funds by giving money to pro-abortion and radical left-wing groups; money which has been given to them in good faith. After you watch Michael’s video return to this page and follow the link below to an article we wrote back in November of 2012 exposing this problem. And then see the Michael Voris and the ALL (American life league) video on that page which explains in great detail the misappropriations of funds by the CCHD. Continue reading

I’m Pro-life But…

Is this you? “I’m pro-life. I would never have an abortion. But I’m not an activist.” Well, I’m glad   you’re   against child-killing. But it’s not enough to say you are against abortion. You must live what you believe. You may not be a hold-a-sign-and-engage-in-public-debate activist, but every Christian should take a stand against abortion. Call it activism, education or ministry, but when genocide is occurring in our nation, we must do more than identify with the opponents of it. When we are persecuted for our stance on abortion or for righteousness sake, it can be discouraging. Who doesn’t want to be liked and accepted? But we must not fear rocking the boat when our fellow human beings are drowning in the devil’s deceptive lies. There are millions of people who are broken and hurting, starving for the truth. They try to fill a void by giving themselves away sexually. When the consequences of their actions hit them, and a baby is created, they try desperately to find a way out. They end up covering up one sin with another by killing their child. The darkness around them gets thicker and harder to overcome, the longer and deeper they dive into perpetual sin.

The Generation that Ignored Good and Evil?

Will We Go Down in History As the Generation that Ignored Good and Evil?

ProLifeCorner-   By Larry Plachno

         The famous G.K. Chesterton is known for his many insightful quotes. One that is particularly appropriate in our current situation is: “It isn’t that they can’t see the solution. It is that they can’t see the problem.”

         And we do have problems. One recent survey indicated that approximately three out of every four Americans think that our country is heading in the wrong direction. Our social problems are out of control, our families are disintegrating, and our people no longer believe in good and evil. Our society has become so brainwashed and influenced by the liberal media that we can no longer see the cause of our problems. It is increasingly obvious that our society is falling apart because we no longer judge our actions as good or evil and we no longer think about doing what is best for other people and society.

For All Who Serve:

Our military forces and all the men and women, firefighters, police officers, paramedics, and those who selflessly serve all of us.

Please God……

Grant them courage, When times seem bleak.

Grant them strength, When they feel weak.

Grant them comfort, When they feel all alone,

And most of all, God, Please bring them, All home. Amen Continue reading

The Pickup’s interview with Celebrate Life magazine

ProLifeCorner – 11-17-14 – by Staff – Many years ago we were working on material for our Pro Life Corner bulletin quotes when we came across several wonderful pro-life quotes from Mark Pickup.  We did not realize at that time the tribulations he and his wife, LaRee, were experiencing, we only knew his writing was superb and we wanted to share it with others.  As years passed we became more aware of Mark’s condition and just some of the trials he has endured.  We have corresponded with him for quite some time and were so thrilled at the wonderful news he shared with us when he was able to take a few steps.  What joy!  Please take time to read the story of a most remarkable and faithful pro-life couple.  If only our world contained more couples like them, it would be a much better place to live.

Parable of the Talents

ProLifeCorner-  Sunday, November 16th, 2014-  Matthew 25: 14-30

“For to anyone who has more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away.”

Since May, the Ebola virus has devastated many countries in Africa. Thousands of people have died of the disease.

Among the many anonymous heroes are nurses like Jose­phine Finda Sellu. Josephine – age 42, is the deputy nurse matron at the government-run hospital in Kenema in Sierra Leone. Kenema has been Sierra Leone’s biggest death trap since the virus struck. Josephine is part of a select club: she is one of three sur­viving nurses of the original staff who did not become infected. They watched their patients die and their colleagues die, but they carried on. Continue reading

Let’s Thank Our Shepherds!

Too often, too many of us take our shepherds for granted; shepherds who have dedicated their lives in the service of God’s people; shepherds who lead us and guide us along the straight and narrow for the sake of our eternal life; shepherds who share in our grief and loss and hurts and disappointments and family issues; shepherds who are available to us 24/7 – in the wee hours of the night, at our hospital bed, during crisis and at our graveside. When did you last thank your pastor, priest, deacon, nun or religious? When did you last offer some encouragement, do something special, drop them a note or even just say thank you! They may be shepherds, but they are also human, and they too face the challenges of life. The typical parish priest works every weekend and holiday, lives in the same building as their office, gets one day off a week, not to mention they’re being asked to care for more souls and take on more responsibilities and roles than ever before. Here are some suggestions in thanking your priest/Pastors. Continue reading

Rigidity of Self

ProLifeCorner- Nov 14 2014-  Me, myself, and I is a way of selfishness, greed, laziness, revenge, etc.. that leads one to Hell.  The “I know better than God” mentality is an attitude embraced by many young people from the ages of 18 to 35 who do not believe the Bible is truly the Word of God.
