The Easter Triduum 2017

The Easter Triduum 2017

ProLifeCorner-  Frank J. Munda- Every year during Lent for the past several years I try to listen to Fr. John Corapi’s presentation of The Easter Triduum. It helps me to think more of our Lord’s passion starting on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and on to Holy Saturday, leading into His glorious resurrection on Easter Sunday.

There are many good and holy pastors who have given great homilies on this subject. I am especially partial to Fr. Corapi’s talk. As you do your meditations this Lent, please pray for Father Corapi and all ministers who are serving our Lord by ministering to us through their preaching’s.

Also, please pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters all throughout the world who cannot worship our Lord without fear of being attacked. May our Lord deliver them from these days of sorrow and bring peace, joy, and love back into their lives. Continue reading

Showing Compassion to Those Who Are Grieving

Showing Compassion to Those Who Are Grieving

“As [Jesus] drew near the gate of [Nain], a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow.”

From an article entitled “A Grieving Mom’s Request “ which appeared in The Boston Globe Magazine, on March 8, 2015. – a year after the death of her daughter, a grieving mom – Roberta Waters writes to family and friends: she writes,

“There are no appropriate words; nothing you can say that will make it better. But your calls, your visits, your invitations mean a lot to me. They remind me that I am still alive and still have a life outside of this tragedy.” Continue reading

The Light of Glory

The Light of Glory

 “While Jesus was praying, his face changed in appearance and his clothing became dazzling white.”

A woman who had never seen the ocean before went on a cruise.  On the voyage she was captivated by the variety of colors she saw in different parts of the ocean — azure, turquoise, aquamarine, emerald.   She collected samples of each hue in small bottles.

When she returned home, she wanted to show her friends the magnificent colors she had seen.   But when she poured the contents of each bottle into separate glasses to show them, she was shocked to see that all they contained was water — colorless, translucent, ordinary water. Continue reading

The Kingdom of God Versus the Kingdom of Man

The Kingdom of God Versus the Kingdom of Man

ProLifeCorner- Frank Munda-

If we refuse to be ruled by God and his laws, then God will allow us to be ruled by tyrants.

It is very difficult not to think about the evil in the world today. My wife Chris and I have spent the better part of the last 30 years talking about the evils of abortion. 9/11 bought a new form of terrorism into all of our lives. Often when I write of abortion, promiscuity, apathy, and the selfishness of the world I sometimes feel like the little brother who is pointing a finger at a sibling and crying out what he or she is doing wrong. I’ve even been told that I’m good at pointing out the problem, followed by “how about giving us some solutions.”  In this article, once again, I will not be able to offer any solutions, but thanks to a recent homily by Pastor Timothy Barr we might have a better sense of direction.

The Essence Of Joy: Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

Beaumont Alberta Canada-  By Mark Pickup- John Keats (1795-1821) said, “I have loved the principle of beauty in all things, and if I had time, I would have made myself remembered.”  He underestimated the impact of his short life. Although John Keats suffered from tuberculosis and died at the age of 25, he is generally considered to be one of England’s greatest poets. His poetry is unparalleled in dignity, melody and sheer richness of imagery. Continue reading

Happy Easter to all From The Pro Life Corner

ProLifeCorner.com-  Easter 2013 – The world has tried to change Easter into a secular holiday; they have tried to change the celebration of the risen Lord into the Easter bunny, Spring break, and spring egg hunts.  We Christians must remind ourselves and each other what Easter is all about.  To those of us who profess to be Christian, it’s the most holy time of the year.  It’s the time we remember that Christ, our Savior, died for us on Good Friday to rise 3 days later to bring hope and salvation to all mankind.  It’s a time to remember that through Christ, His sacrifice, His death and resurrection, redemption came into the world.
