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 →
ProLifeCorner- Editor- A friend recently sent a link to the video below. I had the opportunity to watch it this morning and I found it very revealing. The gentleman who presented this video on the new atheism was originally from India, and in my opinion did an excellent job in his presentation. If you have a son or daughter in college or planning to go to college, I strongly suggest that you watch this video together as a family in order to prepare them for the attacks they will receive on their faith, not only in school but in all aspects of society.
As adults we, too, must be educated to the ways of the new atheism. The wisdom and sophistication of the attacks on Christianity are straight from the lips of Satan.
During this Christmas season do not allow Satan to steal your joy. May the love and joy of our Lord Jesus be with you and your families.
If you find this video interesting please leave a comment below.
ProLifeCorner- Freeport Illinois- By Frank Munda- We recently celebrated Independence Day, 2015. As I look back on my many years here on Earth I have had many joys and many sorrows, and yes many regrets; regrets of things that I did and things that I failed to do. God has blessed me with a wonderful wife, awesome children who married wonderful spouses, and they in turn have been blessed with wonderful children themselves.
There have been dark times as well. The darkness of Vietnam had just slipped away from the consciousness of many American citizens when the greatest travesty of injustice came upon the scene; when an activist controlled Supreme Court illegally and immorally created law declaring that a mother now had the right to kill her baby through abortion. Many of our young readers are probably not even aware that what occurred in January of 1973 was an illegal move by the Supreme Court. The three branches of government, Legislative, Judicial, and Executive are supposed to be checks and balances. The Judicial branch of the government is to rule on existing laws or proposed laws presented by the Legislative branch of the government. This was not the case in January 1973. Through Roe versus Wade and Doe versus Bolton, the Supreme Court created law; a law that states a woman has a right to kill her baby in what should be the safest place in the world- the mothers womb.

ProLifeCorner.com- Pastor Timothy Barr’s homily today cautions us to not to interpret reality through our emotions. He explains that passions are not a bad thing but they must be guided by the truth. That truth is Jesus Christ. When we are obedient to the truth there is great joy. He further stated that the man is the head of the family but the woman is the heart of the family sharing equal responsibility and, hopefully through their teachings and actions, are leading their children to heaven.

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 12-4-14 – by Staff – Sadly it has become all too clear. The new Archbishop of Chicago has a history of banning Priests from praying at abortion clinics. Now in his position as head of the Archdiocese he has publicly declared he will disobey Cannon law and openly welcome unrepentant pro-abortion politicians to receive the Body of Christ.

ProLifeCorner- 10-14-2014 – Below is a wonderful homily sent to us by a friend. It explains the parable of the king’s wedding banquet simply and completely and gives the reader much to ponder. Please take a few minutes to read it-you will certainly not regret doing so. Continue reading →

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 5-20 -2014 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – In Chuck Sweeny’s recent column in the Rockford Register Star titled ‘Predicting fallout of GOP vote leader” , about Winnebago County Republican Chairman Jim Thompson’s joke calling President Obama an ass, Mr. Sweeny seems outraged that Mr. Thompson is still allowed to keep his job after making this comment. Mr.Sweeny also quoted Rep. Chuck Jefferson who was outraged by what he thought was an inappropriate joke. Continue reading →
EDITOR’S NOTE: The following “letter” is presented in the form of satire in the hope of making the point that a Catholic hospital that allows known abortionists on the staff is totally ludicrous, hypocritical, scandalous, and shameful at best.
La Crosse WI.- (ProLifeCorner.com) – 5-10-2014 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – To my reasonable Bishop Callahan and Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, Thank you for having Dr. Rose on staff at Franciscan Mayo Hospital. I know some religious extremists call Dr. Rose an abortionist, but we can all admit he is a professional and efficient at preventing the hearts of children in the womb from beating. We have never heard of him botching even one abortion. This kind of efficiency and professionalism is hard to find. A true hallmark of Franciscan Health Care. Continue reading →
Recent surveys indicate that many if not most Americans are unhappy with the directions their country is taking. More and more people are asking why? Those doing the research are suggesting that we have caused most of our own problems by turning away from basic Christianity.
We have turned our back on God by giving up on good and evil while replacing them with relativism. We have made a mockery of Jesus Christ’s suffering and death by replacing sin with selfishness. And, we have ceased to be concerned for others and have replaced responsibilities with rights. In short, we have moved away from the moral guidance of God, church, husbands and fathers.
