The Solemnity of Mary the Mother of God

ProLifeCorner-  Thursday, January 1st, 2015-  Numbers 6: 22-27   Galatians 4:4-7  Luke 2:16-21

        “So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph and the infant lying in the manger.”

The Blessed Virgin Mary, a typical young woman of Nazareth by all outward appearances, was selected by God to be the mother of the Messiah, the Savior, the Son of God. What an extraordinary thing this was. Her consent to this astounding proposal changed the world and helped make salvation possible to mankind. So today, as we begin a new calendar year, we take time to honor Mary, the Holy Mother of God. In doing so we honor her Son, Jesus as well. Continue reading

Jesus Christ, our Economy and our Politics

ProLifeCorner-   By Larry Plachno-  How much of a connection is there between Jesus Christ, our economy and our politics?  The answer is considerably more than you might think, particularly once you understand that moral relativism is effectively the opposite of Christianity. Having spent more than 20 years working with statistics surrounding interconnected social problems, I can tell you that all of this not only becomes increasingly simple but also logical.

When pressed, Jesus Christ gave us two very simple and basic commandments: love of God and love of neighbor. Since God sent His Son to suffer and die to atone for our sins, love of God means judging our actions and decisions as to whether they are good or evil. Being a follower of Jesus Christ means that good is what is best for others and society. Continue reading

May We Recognize Jesus In Our World Today

Pro Life Corner – Christmas 2014 – Have we prepared the way of the Lord?  Are we willing to follow the way of Mary to say yes to God’s will in our lives? Are we willing to allow Him into our homes? Mary said ‘yes’ to God physically living within her. Mary was a holy and sacred temple of God in the truest sense.  So are we. God wants to live in our hearts and our souls and our homes.  He really wants to live in us. He really wants to make an effect in our life just like he made an incredible effect in Mary’s Life and in Joseph’s life. He really wants to give you His peace. He really wants to give  you His mercy. He really wants to give you His love. What should be  our response to that?  To follow Mary’s example, and say I am a handmaid of the Lord.  Let it be done to me according to your Word.

Reduced Abortions and the Demographic Winter

ProLifeCorner-   By Larry Plachno-   Some of the pro-life groups have been celebrating over announcements that the number of abortions has been declining recently. The researchers and demographers will tell you that the dancing in the streets is unwarranted and at best questionable. What at first appears to be a positive turn in the battle is actually a worsening of the war. The situation is similar to saying that you have reduced automobile accidents by greatly reducing the number of cars on the road.

A major part of this problem is that far too many people concentrate on the effects of abortion while ignoring the cause of abortion and the cause of most of our social problems, which is moral relativism. Since our elected officials, our religious leaders and our pro-life groups all depend on votes or contributions for support, they tend to ignore moral relativism for fear of offending someone. The result is that our society continues to grow more selfish and continues to embrace moral relativism. Continue reading

God In The Manger!

ProLifeCorner-   The world is happy to let Jesus Christ be a baby in a manger, but not willing to let Him be the sovereign King and Lord that He is. Yet that is the central truth of the Christmas story: the Child of Christmas is God! Lots of people who would otherwise gladly embrace Jesus as Messiah, don’t want Him to be God.

•     They will welcome Him as a son of David, but not as the Son of God.

•     They don’t mind celebrating the birth of a baby, but they don’t want to hear about the Lord of lords.

•     They sing of His nativity, but brazenly reject His authority.

•     They adore Him as an infant, but will not pay homage to Him as the God-man.

•     They can tolerate the trappings of Christmas, a manger,   shepherds,   wise   men,   Joseph   and Mary, but they cannot bear the advent of God in human flesh.

•     Consequently the world ignores the core of all Christmas truth.

•     Instead of honoring Jesus at Christmas, they are actually mocking Him. Continue reading
