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
Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 4 – 28 –2014 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative - The administration of Mayo Clinic-Franciscan Healthcare LaCrosse, WI. has made a conscious decision to allow an abortionist on the staff of a Catholic Hospital and to allow doctors under their authority to tell mothers they have the right to kill their babies in the womb. Why would a “Catholic” hospital participate in and make possible the murder of children like this? Continue reading
Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 3-15-2014 – by Frank Munda – Is Bill Maher Our New “Community Standard? Many of you have been following the decision by the city of Rockford to host the vicious anti-Christian hatemonger and bigot Bill Maher at the city owned Coronado theater. Based on the fact that any performer at a city owned venue must by law meet community standards for decency many good Christians have asked the city to reconsider their decision to support the perversion and bigotry that Mr. Maher directs at Christians.

A replica of the Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa is traveling from Ocean to Ocean in Defense of Life. This international campaign started on June 14, 2012, when a small band of Catholic and Orthodox faithful left Vladivostok on the Pacific coast of Russia with the Icon and travelled over 30,000 kilometers to Fatima, Portugal. She arrived in North America on August 24, 2013, at St. Clements Island in Maryland. She has journeyed throughout the Eastern United States and Canada. She was at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. and on Monday, April 7, 2014, Our Lady will arrive at Holy Family. She will be our guest for one day. We will begin the day with Holy Mass at 8:30 followed by Exposition and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament during the day. Benediction will precede the 5:30 Mass. At 7:00 we will have another evening Mass followed by a talk by Fr. Peter West who is escorting the Icon. We will also have Fr. West for Mass at 8:30 Tuesday morning and then say farewell to the Black Madonna as they leave for Rock Island. Continue reading
Western Catholic Reporter- By Mark Pickup - My wife LaRee and I were asked to address a conference about critical life issues sponsored by the Diocese of Metuchen, N.J. They wanted us to speak about a Christian perspective on suffering, disability and end-of-life care. It is a timely topic because New Jersey is considering a law to allow assisted suicide.

With the Easter season upon us commemorating the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ, this might be a good time to ask ourselves why our society is headed downhill at breakneck speed?

ProLifeCorner.com- by Larry Plachno- While some people are speculating on why our new pontiff picked the name of Francis, those who know the story of St. Francis of Assisi are well aware of where our new Pope may be going.
St. Francis was known to spend time walking and meditating. One of his favorite paths passed the church of San Damiano, a dilapidated and usually deserted chapel on a steep hill surrounding Assisi. The most noteworthy feature of this nearly forgotten church was a large life-size painting of Christ on the cross. Continue reading
Update- March 6, 2013 – Bill Donohue comments on some of the findings from a survey of self-identified Catholics as reported in today’s New York Times: Whether someone who “attends Mass a few times a year or never” can be considered Catholic is debatable, but at any rate those responses make for interesting reading when compared to those who “attend Mass weekly.” The majority of weekly attendees have a favorable view of Pope Benedict XVI; only a quarter of those who rarely attend feel the same way. Regarding recent papal events, 72% of weekly attendees have been closely following the news stories, while only 35% of those who rarely attend have been doing so. Continue reading
