ProLifeCorner.com – Frank J. Munda- 2-7-2016 – Often people will ask this most important question: Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus? It’s a good question Do you have the right answer? Is the answer yes? By the very nature of someone accepting Jesus into their life we all have varying degrees of relationship with our Lord.
If you profess to be Christian the question is, what does it mean to have a personal relationship with Jesus? I came from a background that might seem strange to some; that is we were Catholic on my Father’s side of the family and Protestant on my Mother’s side. My Mom and Dad had four sons and I was the third born. My mother had a lovely singing voice and loved the old Protestant hymns. When we were small, often at night my Mom would sing the beautiful old Protestant hymns to us. “The Old Rugged Cross” was one of my favorites. Of course when I was real small I did not understand this Protestant – Catholic thing. As I grew up unfortunately the differences became more clear to me. My favorite aunt was a Baptist Christian. She was a good and kind person and I know she loved me as her nephew, but I had difficulty understanding how she could hate my Catholic faith. When my young wife and I had an opportunity to purchase our first home, it was my aunt who gave us the down payment. In her own way she had a relationship with Jesus; she was a good, kind and loving person to those around her. The only thing that I truly could not understand is how she could love Jesus, and yet take such a strong anti-Catholic position. Continue reading →
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.

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.
