The Black Eye of America

The Black Eye of America

ProLifeCorner.com – 1-18-2017 – by Editor – Roe v Wade is, as Fr. Timothy Barr states in his homily, a black eye on America.  With one out of every three babies aborted in America each day, we truly do have an obligation to defend life, end abortion, and defund Planned Parenthood, whose outreach extends worldwide.  Our own government has been denying aid in cases of disasters such as earthquakes, floods, etc., to countries who refuse to accept abortion and artificial birth control in their land.  Sadly, America has become one of the largest purveyors of the culture of death in the world by spreading this anti-life agenda far and wide.

Please take a few minutes and listen to the wisdom and courage of Fr. Timothy Barr.

The Feast Day of St. Joseph 2016

The Feast Day of St. Joseph 2016

ProLifeCorner – Freeport Illinois-  For many years various cultures have celebrated Feast 275xSt. Joseph’s feast day, March 19, with a St. Joseph’s Altar.  The custom began after a famine/drought in Sicily.  After asking St. Joseph for his intercession, rain came and the people rejoiced.  They celebrated with an altar of food and flowers in thanks for the prayers of St. Joseph, then the food was donated to the poor.

St. Joseph’s altar has continued in many parishes, especially those with a large Italian population.  St. Joseph’s Church in Freeport, Il. has always been known as the “German parish” in town.  However, our pastor, Fr. Timothy Barr, suggested we have a celebration of St. Joseph’s feast day to honor our patron saint.  Cynthia Saar and Mary Julius traveled to Rockford to meet with Rosie Sheriden, who has a St. Joseph Altar in her home every other year.  St. Anthony of Padua Parish in Rockford, Il has a St. Joseph altar every year.

Medical Marijuana? Slow Down

ProLifeCorner-  Freeport Illinois-  By Fr. Timothy Barr-    I am sure we have all heard about the marijuana plantations going up all over in Illinois, and especially in Freeport. There seems to be a rush to get everything up and going, but maybe we should really look at what the effects of something like this will be. The Church does not teach that marijuana is an intrinsic evil, but it is a mind altering drug. It should be treated with great care. Continue reading
