October is Respect Life month: Death and Human Dignity

ProLifeCorner-  Freeport, Il – by AnnaRae – 10-13-2014 -  Our country and our world is suffering from the culture of death; we suffer from not only Ebola and other deadly viruses, but from the disease of the mind that condones abortion and euthanasia.  It seems tempting to encourage people who are facing pain, from cancer or some other illness, to seek out someone who will help them end their life so they do not have to go through this agony.  It seems tempting to encourage young women to seek an abortion if they do not want or cannot afford to bear a child at this time.  Do we think of the pain she will endure down the road?  The regrets, the sorrow, the physical difficulties?  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
