A Divine Mercy Moment: From the diary of St. Faustina

“Help me, O Lord that my eyes may be merciful, so that I may never suspect or judge from appearances, but look for what is beautiful in my neighbors’ souls and come to their rescue.”  – St. Faustina (Diary 163)

“Encourage the souls with whom you come in contact to trust in My infinite mercy. Oh, how I love those souls who have complete confidence in Me. I will do everything for them.” – Jesus to St. Faustina (Diary 294)

“The greatest sinners would achieve great sanctity, if only they would trust in My mercy.” – Jesus to St. Faustina (Diary 1784)

“When my soul is in anguish, I think only in this way: Jesus is good and full of mercy, and even if the ground were to give way under my feet, I would not cease to trust in Him.” – St. Faustina (Diary 1192)

“When you approach the confessional, know this, that I Myself am waiting there for you. Here the misery of the soul meets the God of mercy. Tell souls that from this fount of mercy souls draw graces solely with the vessel of trust. If their trust is great, there is no limit to My generosity.” – Jesus to St. Faustina (Diary 1602)

“Be always merciful as I am merciful. Love everyone out of love for me, even your greatest enemies, so that My mercy may be fully reflected in your heart.” Jesus to St. Faustina (Diary 1695) Continue reading

America Was a Great Nation

America Was a Great Nation

ProLifeCorner – 2-2-2017 – by Chris Munda – The following article by our friend from Canada, Mark Pickup, is one of the best we have read, and that’s really saying something.  He gives us a brief history of why America was a great nation and why America now is headed in a downward spiral.  There is a glimmer of hope, however, if we clean up our act and start to love and help others again.  But most of all, we need to stop the holocaust of the unborn.  We cannot continue to slaughter our children and expect our nation to become great again.

The Purposeful Killing of Human Life

The Purposeful Killing of Human Life

ProLifeCorner – 2-2-2017 – by Chris Munda – Euthanasia goes by other names, for example, mercy killing, assisted suicide, easy death, etc..  You can call it whatever name you like, but it still means only one thing-the purposeful killing of a human life.

We are living in a time when human life has been cheapened so much that animals are treated with more care and respect than human beings.  It has, for quite some time, been seriously discussed how older, terminally ill, or chronically ill patients should die to save resources for the young and strong.  Is this the kind of world in which we want to live?  Should Grandpa be put down like a dog because he has arthritis and can’t get around as fast as he did in the past?  How about getting rid of Grandma because she’s too weak to stand at the stove for hours cooking everyone’s favorite foods?  Or what about a child or young adult with MS?  Do they deserve to die because they have an illness or handicap?

One only has to hear the inspiring life story of Mark Pickup, a great hero in the pro-life movement.  “Assisted Suicide As A Matter of Course”.Mark is but one of many people who suffer from a debilitating disease, but he has shown the world great courage, strength, and has shared many great writings with all of us.  Those who favor euthanasia would suggest he is really not useful to society.  What rubbish!!  Mark has given hope and inspiration to so many people who are handicapped in some way.  He is a role model to all of us.

A VOICE IN THE WILDERNESS

A VOICE IN THE WILDERNESS

ProLifeCorner – 1-21-2017 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – This morning’s protest walk in Rockford, by women opposing President Donald Trump, reeks of hypocrisy.

The walk, in sync with the walk in DC, should be named the “Pro-Abortion Progressive Women’s Walk.”

A partner organization, New Wave Feminists, was barred from joining the walk because the latter group is pro-life, though left-leaning.

Now we learn that a group, “And then there were none,” “a ministry that helps abortion clinic workers leave the industry, has seen its partnership in the March rejected.” (The Blaze)

So, call it what it is, ladies:  A Pro-Abortion walk. Continue reading

Are We Living in an Era of Heaven and Hell on Earth?

Are We Living in an Era of Heaven and Hell on Earth?

ProLifeCorner- By Larry Plachno

Larry-150x1 blue     The demography coming out of the recent 2016 Presidential election is suggesting that we are living in an era of Heaven and Hell on earth. This is bringing up several questions: What is the cause of why areas are different? Is Christianity more than just a religion? And how important is traditional marriage to society?

For many years now, the demographers have been telling us that you can predict elections based on an area’s fertility rate – effectively the interest in bringing children into our world. Areas with a high fertility rate tend to elect conservative candidates and vote for conservative issues. Areas with a low fertility rate tend to elect liberal candidates and vote for liberal issues.

In recent years these differences have become increasingly polarized and more sharply defined. For decades now, families have been moving out of the inner cities and into suburban and rural areas. At the same time, singles have moved into the big cities for education, employment or activities. The differences between the two areas have become increasingly obvious. Continue reading
