ProLifeCorner.com- by Larry Plachno-There are increasing concerns among researchers and moral leaders that many pro-life people are putting in a great deal of effort into fighting the battle against abortion but are losing the war against choice because they are ignoring it.
Recent directions from higher up, including Pope Francis and Bishop Malloy of Rockford have suggested that we need to look and work beyond abortion. This does not mean that abortion is any less evil. But it does suggest that it is time for us to go beyond abortion and deal with the battle over choice replacing good and evil, which is the primary cause of abortion and most social problems.

Beaumont, Alberta,Canada- Mark Pickup- Pro-euthanasia rhetoric loaded with euphemisms to disguise reality. I want to address the rhetoric used by people who promote euthanasia and assisted suicide. Those who control language control public discourse and set agendas that dictate behaviour that might not be acceptable in other contexts.
It is a confusing time. The culture in which we live is telling the incurably ill and severely disabled they have a right to assisted suicide while the healthy population deserves suicide prevention. Continue reading →
Rockford Il.- ProLifeCorner.com- On April 7th- Human Life International is sponsoring the Pilgrimage of the Black Madonna in North America. 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 →
Beaumont, Alberta,Canada- By Mark Pickup-It was a quiet March evening. My wife, LaRee, was sitting in her favorite chair beside the fireplace that you see in the photo above. She was knitting while I was writing a post for this blog and listening to J.S.Bach’s “Saint Matthew Passion”. Something occurred to me. I said, “It was 30 years ago yesterday that I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.” LaRee paused, put her knitting down on her lap, looked over her reading glasses and said, “We won. We beat the MS.” It was of those revelations of life when the experiences of decades melt into a single moment: The room filled with thunderous silence LaRee was right. We rose above the disease.
I gazed toward the fireplace and became lost in the flames. Our terrifying journey with MS did not drive us apart, it drew us closer. In the midst of the consuming fire of a terrible disease, we embraced each other tighter when the flames grew higher…. Continue reading →
