Ash Wednesday Introduction 2016

ProLifeCorner- Today all throughout the world, Christians of many denominations will start a 40 day period of fasting and prayer. A dear friend of the ProLifeCorner sent us his introduction to this most holy season. To some Christians who do not practice Lent, hopefully this introduction will provide a little deeper understanding of this holy season. If practicing Lent is not part of your tradition, and this introduction makes sense to you, please join us on this holy journey for a more personal relationship with our Lord and Savior.

Ash Wednesday Introduction

Today, the Church celebrates Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent.

Lent has three major themes: repentance, purification, and growth.  These three themes are exemplified very appropriately by the use of ashes. Continue reading

Living the Moral Life: Unforgiveness

Living the Moral Life: Unforgiveness 

ProLifeCorner-

A good friend who is also my Pastor is doing a series on “Living The Moral Life.”  The article below is number 41 in this series. This particular talk is on gossip. I wish I could say that I have never been guilty of that particular sin. It seems that gossip today is more prevalent than it was when I was younger. Maybe that’s just selective remembering on my part. I think what I like so much about this article is Pastor Timothy  Barr is not just giving us his opinion, he gives many biblical examples of why we should not be guilty of this particular sin. I know I am going to take this article close to my heart, and especially as we move into the Lenten season I am going to make more of an effort to hold my tongue. Please enjoy this article.

Living the Moral Life: Unforgiveness

A tell-tale sign that one has not forgiven is gossip. In fact, it produces unforgiveness in others. So not only does it condition the self to not forgive, but encourages others to fall into the same sin. It seems to be the favorite American pastime. But first, to help motivate us not to gossip, we need to understand why it is so wicked. Continue reading

Do You Have A Personal Relationship With Jesus?

Do You Have A Personal Relationship With Jesus?

ProLifeCorner.com –  Frank J. Munda- 2-7-2016 – Often people will ask this most important question: Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus? It’s a good question   Do you have the right answer? Is the answer yes?  By the very nature of someone accepting Jesus into their life we all have varying degrees of relationship with our Lord.

If you profess to be Christian the question is, what does it mean to have a personal relationship with Jesus? I came from a background that might seem strange to some; that is we were Catholic on my Father’s side of the family and Protestant on my Mother’s side.  My Mom and Dad had four sons and I was the third born.  My mother had a lovely singing voice and loved the old Protestant hymns. When we were small, often at night my Mom would sing the beautiful old Protestant hymns to us.  “The Old Rugged Cross” was one of my favorites. Of course when I was real small I did not understand this Protestant – Catholic thing. As I grew up unfortunately the differences became more clear to me.  My favorite aunt was a Baptist Christian.  She was a good and kind person and I know she loved me as her nephew, but I had difficulty understanding how she could hate my Catholic faith. When my young wife and I had an opportunity to purchase our first home, it was my aunt who gave us the down payment. In her own way she had a relationship with Jesus; she was a good, kind and loving person to those around her. The only thing that I truly could not understand is how she could love Jesus, and yet take such a strong anti-Catholic position. Continue reading

Practical Prayer

Practical Prayer

Today I’m going to pretend

I have no other work but

To listen to your voice, O LORD

Your voice will come to me

Carried on the wind of peace,

That’s how I’ll know it’s You

Peace, beyond common understanding,

Will flood my being, as I do daily work

The work that I must do to comfort

My body: for food, for shelter, for identity

Among men: what I wear, what I drive,

Where I live – these are facts that interest

The people in the natural world, but where

I truly LIVE, in the Spirit with You, I am

Free, without cares, like a child You are

In charge and caring for me completely.

Amen

Mark Pickup is an Inspiration to Us All

Mark Pickup is an Inspiration to Us All

ProLifeCorner- Frank Joseph Munda- There’s an old saying, ”I felt sorry for LaRee n Markmyself because I had no shoes, until I saw a man who had no feet.” It is a rare individual who has not been touched by some form of physical, or mental pain. It seems some of us suffer a little more than others. Mark Pickup and his wife LaRee of HumanLifeMatters have certainly suffered much physical and mental pain over the years. Losing his mobility to MS was a tragedy that would have destroyed a lesser man than Mark. He has carried this cross in a Christ like fashion. His faith in Christ, his love of life has helped him overcome any and all obstacles in his life. They, Mark and LaRee are an example to all of us. Continue reading

A New Challenge to Roe v. Wade

A New Challenge to Roe v. Wade

 ProLifeCorner-   By Larry Plachno

Many people braved the snow in Washington, D.C. in January to march for life. They Larry-150x1 bluewere there to show their unhappiness with the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court Decision of January 22, 1973 that made abortion the law of the land. There were other major marches elsewhere including Chicago and San Francisco timed to coincide with this 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Due to the bias of our mainstream media in ignoring pro-life news, most of the marchers were probably not aware that there has been a new challenge to Roe v. Wade.

This new development comes from a rather unexpected quarter. Involved is a joint resolution recently passed by the South Dakota state House of Representatives with a 60-10 vote and passed by the state Senate with a 25-9 vote. It was signed by the leaders of both chambers. Just prior to this Roe v. Wade anniversary, some of the South Dakota lawmakers presented this state resolution to the United States Supreme Court. In doing so they asked the high court to reconsider and overturn its abortion rulings including Roe v. Wade. Continue reading
