Every year, Carnegie Mellon University invites one of its faculty to give what has been called “The Last Lecture” — the wisdom the professor would impart to students if it was his or her’s last chance.   In September 2007, Randy Pausch [pronounced powsh], a computer science professor, accepted the challenge — the difference this time was that this really would be Professor Pausch’s last lecture: he had just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and had less than a year to live.

Come and See the Future Home of the Madonna Renewal Center

Pro Life Corner – Freeport, Il – 9-14-2014 – by Annarae

Freeport, Il has been blessed to have several Nigerian nuns from the order of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Mother of Christ.  Their presence has been noted not only by their tireless work in the community, but also by their bright blue habits; many of us refer to them as our Blue nuns.  They are now working on a very special project that will help not only women, but the entire community as well.  They have already been teaching at the local Catholic schools, providing care at a local nursing center and many other spiritual and social services for our area.  They were given, for a meager sum, the old St. Francis Hospital building.

St. Francis Hospital closed its doors in the 1960′s, then the building was used for a home for exceptional children.  That operation closed several years ago and the five story building has stood vacant and had been slowly deteriorating. Continue reading

America: Heed God’s Warning

ProLifeCorner.com – Chicago, Il - The following is a letter presented in Chicago’s St. Stanislov Kostka Church Bulletin from Aug. 3.  The pastor is a dedicated priest and he has a 1 hr. radio show each Monday-Friday on AM 750 from noon to 1 pm.  

Dear Parishioners, Friends, and Benefactors, I wonder if you’re feeling a little of what I feel these days – a little tired – a little sad – maybe even some anger. The words of the prophet Jeremiah are ever in my heart. Jeremiah recalls the happiness of his heart when he found God. He remembers the joy he had in devouring every word that came from the mouth of God. Because he bore the name of God, Jeremiah did not sit celebrating in the circle of merrymakers, but under the weight of God’s hand he sat alone.  Continue reading
