ProLifeCorner.com- Oct 11 2013- By Larry Plachno- Moving Beyond Abortion and Contraception. Recent developments suggesting that faithful Catholics need to expand their areas of concern have caused some confusion. Pope Francis did not say that abortion, contraception and sex outside of marriage are no longer sinful. What His Holiness did say is that we need to expand our efforts and concerns into other areas. One of the most appropriate comments came from Mary Eberstadt writing in the October 7, 2013 issue of Time Magazine who said: “Far from selling the beleagured faithful down the Tiber, this Pope is simply asking them to find bigger nets.” Continue reading

ProLifeCorner.com- Many people ask me why prayer is so important. There are many benefits to daily prayer. Maybe we feel we are not doing anything. But we are! If we have a conversation with others, we feel that we are doing something. Conversations have the potential to change the world. I think of all the conversations Jesus had that changed so many lives. Hitler had many conversations with his cronies to organize his evil deeds. If we have no problem conversing with others whatever the intention from idle-talk to deep convictions; why do we not value our conversations with Jesus or His blessed Mother? There are many benefits to prayer from received grace to lower blood pressure. But how we learn to pray comes from the home. When was the last time the family sat down and prayed the rosary together?

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
