Christ’s Peace vs the Government’s Peace

Christ’s Peace vs the Government’s Peace

ProLifeCorner- Homily given at midnight mass.

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

            It was the great Roman boast: Ara Pacis Augustae – which means, “the era of Augustus’ peace.”

During the first and second centuries of the common era, the Roman empire, from Iberia to Greece, enjoyed a period of relative prosperity and tranquility. In one of the great propa­ganda campaigns of history, Caesar Augustus was hailed as a “god” and the “savior of the world” for the peace he enforced. Continue reading

Mary’s Dream!

Mary’s Dream!

Joseph, last night I had a dream that I don’t understand. It was about celebrating our Son’s birthday. People prepared for weeks. Everyone was busy buying many gifts and decorating their homes. Something was strange. The gifts were not for our Son. They would wrap them beautifully and put them under a tree. Its branches had colorful balls and ornaments. On top of the tree was an angel. Everything was beautiful!

Holy Family 200xEveryone seemed to be happy and excited at the gifts they gave and received. But Joseph, they gave nothing to our Son. I don’t think they even know Him. They didn’t even mention His name. Isn’t it very strange Joseph that people would put so much effort into the birthday of someone they don’t even know?

Jesus would feel like a stranger at His birthday party. Everything was beautiful and everyone was busy with the celebration. I felt like crying because our Son was ignored. How sad for Jesus not to be part of His own birthday! I’m happy that it was a dream. How terrible for everyone if it were true.


Christmas is celebrated by over 2 billion people worldwide. It’s the greatest global celebration! Fact is, 94% of Americans celebrate Christmas, 4% celebrate Hanukkah and 2% celebrate Kwanzaa. Over 87% of Americans agree that Nativity scenes should be allowed; only 9% disagree.

Christmas is when most merchants turn a profit. They have secularized Christmas while profiting and denying Christians the real reason for the season! We do not give Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or New Years gifts’. It is Christmas and the birth of Jesus that we celebrate!

This Christmas, give a gift in someone’s name to a homeless shelter, Missionaries of the Poor, Pregnancy Center or Life-Saver Ads. Your gift will keep on giving, well beyond this Christmas season! Continue reading

Unless Truth be a Mockery and Justice a Hollow Lie

Unless Truth be a Mockery and Justice a Hollow Lie

ProLifeCorner – 12-15-2015 – by Staff – Our latest cntribution from our friend in Canada, Mark Pickup, is one of his best ever-and that’s saying something!  Mark will be speaking in Washington, DC at St. Matthew the Apostle Cathedral just prior to the 2016 March for Life.

Please take time to read his latest articfle and we think you’ll come away with the same feeling we have; it was a tribute and a Christmas gift of encouragement to all of us who work and pray for an end to abortion and euthanasia.

May God bless Mark and his family with many more years of their courage and wisdom. Continue reading

Advent Preparation 2015

ProLifeCorner-   Today begins the second week of Advent. Many of us have seen the wreath with four candles that appear in many churches and homes across our country.

The purpose of Advent is to prepare us for a deep, personal, life-changing, world-shaking encounter with Christ this Christmas. Continue reading

God In The Manger!

ProLifeCorner-   The world is happy to let Jesus Christ be a baby in a manger, but not willing to let Him be the sovereign King and Lord that He is. Yet that is the central truth of the Christmas story: the Child of Christmas is God! Lots of people who would otherwise gladly embrace Jesus as Messiah, don’t want Him to be God.

•     They will welcome Him as a son of David, but not as the Son of God.

•     They don’t mind celebrating the birth of a baby, but they don’t want to hear about the Lord of lords.

•     They sing of His nativity, but brazenly reject His authority.

•     They adore Him as an infant, but will not pay homage to Him as the God-man.

•     They can tolerate the trappings of Christmas, a manger,   shepherds,   wise   men,   Joseph   and Mary, but they cannot bear the advent of God in human flesh.

•     Consequently the world ignores the core of all Christmas truth.

•     Instead of honoring Jesus at Christmas, they are actually mocking Him. Continue reading
