ProLifeCorner.com- by Larry Plachno- If You Ask the Wrong Questions, You Get the Wrong Answers- People are increasingly asking how we got here? What happened to cause the death through abortion of well over 53 million babies since Roe v. Wade? What happened to cause the movement away from marriage?

There He hung- between two thieves—His piercing cry rending the blackened vault above, “My God, my God—why have You forsaken Me! “
There He hung- His face marred more than any man’s!
There He hung- His head, His hands, and His feet pierced and bleeding, torn and mangled, with the iron fangs and the thorny crown!
There He hung- under the frown of Heaven!
There He hung- cast out by the world–the taunt and sneer of the passer-by, and the song of the drunkard in the street! He gave Himself to this. Continue reading
If we could approach Confucius and ask if he could save us, he would tell us that he is a philosopher, not a savior. If we could ask Mohammed if he is a savior, he would say that he is a prophet, not a redeemer. If we were to ask Buddha, he would say, “No, save yourself by attaining that spiritual state called ‘Nirvana’, where you lose all consciousness of self. Jesus Christ is preeminent because He is not just a philosopher or prophet, but The Savior. That’s His Name! Life from nothing began through Him and life from the dead began through Him. He is justly called, Lord of all. Col. 1:18 Continue reading
ProLifeCorner.com- By Mark Pickup- Christians should be more concerned about the rights of others than their own. “Have you ever noticed that the Bible says little about us defending own rights but is replete with exhortations for us to defend the rights of others. A hallmark of the modern age is an obsession with individual rights. It seems that every other day somebody is demanding his or her rights. Some people even demand rights that are not even written down anywhere or recognized by any legislature or court. Self-interest reigns supreme. Continue reading
ProLifeCorner.com- by Larry Plachno- While some people are speculating on why our new pontiff picked the name of Francis, those who know the story of St. Francis of Assisi are well aware of where our new Pope may be going.
St. Francis was known to spend time walking and meditating. One of his favorite paths passed the church of San Damiano, a dilapidated and usually deserted chapel on a steep hill surrounding Assisi. The most noteworthy feature of this nearly forgotten church was a large life-size painting of Christ on the cross. Continue reading
Freeport IL.- St Therese (the little flower) as a young teenager fell in love with Jesus. She wanted to Love Jesus back. But she was nobody of great importance. What could she do? She thought about the passage in scripture where we are many parts of one body. She was trying to figure out what part of the body she was called to be. Then it came to her; she was to be the heart! As the Heart brings life to the rest of the body, so does love bring life to the Church. She tried to love in great matters, but found she couldn’t get it right. Finally, she decided she would do what she could in little matters. Continue reading
ProLifeCorner.com—By Timothy Barr- Lent is a time of penance, a season of confessions. Confession can be a scary thing to do. I suppose many from outside the Church do not understand why we would go. In fact, I think many of us wonder the same thing. Pope John Paul II used to go every week. Why? What did He see or experience in confession? Continue reading
ProLifeCorner.com- Lent is a time of repentance, conversion and coming closer to our Lord Jesus. It is a time when Jesus calls us closer. But we live in a world that pulls us in another direction. It is a direction that goes anywhere but towards holiness. The world wants to make us comfortable where we are at; in front of the screen, in the fridge or on the phone. In short, the world wants us to forget about God, His mercy and healing power. I invite you to enter into Lent as a retreat. There are many ways we can come closer to Jesus and grow in holiness and grace. Continue reading
Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 1-19-2013 – by Kevin Rilott – A woman in Texas has written a widely read article for the CNN web site that tries to convince people to raise their children without God.
