Rockford, Il – 7-25-2014 – ProLifeCorner.com- – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative - Christians in Mosul Iraq found the Arabic letter “N” standing for “Nazarene,” written on their homes, Churches, and schools by Islamist terrorists.

The followers of Islam mean it as a mark of shame, Christians are now using it as a mark of hope: Yes, we are the people of the Resurrected Nazarene, the Master and Lord of the Universe, the Man who is God Almighty, the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity. You may kill our brethren and expel them, but we Christians will never go away. Continue reading →

Newspapers in California carried a story not too long ago about a State Highway Patrol officer who received a call to rush to a nearby bridge.

Even though it made no sense, in her own mind to approach the would-be jumper, the officer nevertheless, managed to put aside her own fears and calmly eased herself out onto the railing where the would-be jumper was perched. There, high above the rocky gorge, the two women talked for two hours, the officer offering her hope and assurance while quietly struggling with her own panic. Finally, the desperate woman agreed to come away from the railing and get help. Continue reading →
