ProLifeCorner – 11-17-14 – by Staff – Many years ago we were working on material for our Pro Life Corner bulletin quotes when we came across several wonderful pro-life quotes from Mark Pickup. We did not realize at that time the tribulations he and his wife, LaRee, were experiencing, we only knew his writing was superb and we wanted to share it with others. As years passed we became more aware of Mark’s condition and just some of the trials he has endured. We have corresponded with him for quite some time and were so thrilled at the wonderful news he shared with us when he was able to take a few steps. What joy! Please take time to read the story of a most remarkable and faithful pro-life couple. If only our world contained more couples like them, it would be a much better place to live. Continue reading
ProLifeCorner- Are you ready for the onslaught against good and evil In regard to abortion, marriage and family?
By Larry Plachno Anyone who has done any reading in this area is fully aware that our society has been involved in a fierce and very polarized battle for decades. On the one side are the people who believe in good and evil. On the other side are the people who believe in personal rights instead of good and evil.
I cannot stress strongly enough that the basic problem is whether we judge all of our actions and decisions as to whether they are good for others and society rather than what we want. The reason for this is because everything is interconnected. Demographers have shown that in recent presidential elections, states with the lowest fertility rates vote for liberal candidates and liberal issues while states with the highest fertility rates vote for conservative candidates and conservative candidates. As you become more liberal, your ideal family size gets smaller and you are less likely to be married. Abortion, marriage, family and politics are all interconnected whether we like it or not.

Beaumont, Alberta,Canada- By Mark Pickup- It was a quiet March evening. My wife, LaRee, was sitting in her favorite chair beside the fireplace that you see in the photo above. She was knitting while I was writing a post for this blog and listening to J.S.Bach’s “Saint Matthew Passion”. Something occurred to me. I said, “It was 30 years ago yesterday that I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.” LaRee paused, put her knitting down on her lap, looked over her reading glasses and said, “We won. We beat the MS.” It was of those revelations of life when the experiences of decades melt into a single moment: The room filled with thunderous silence LaRee was right. We rose above the disease.
I gazed toward the fireplace and became lost in the flames. Our terrifying journey with MS did not drive us apart, it drew us closer. In the midst of the consuming fire of a terrible disease, we embraced each other tighter when the flames grew higher…. Continue reading
ProLifeCorner.com- 3-1-2014 – By Frank Munda- See how they love one another. To love one another should be the goal of all Christians. We Christians have worked together in the pro-life movement for over 40 years and have put aside our denominational differences so we could work in a unified way to save God’s babies. Through God’s grace there have been many lives saved and many mothers saved from the very real presence of post abortion stress syndrome. Continue reading
ProLifeCorner.com- by Larry Plachno- Why is it that liberals are trying to devalue and eliminate marriage while Christians and other conservatives are supporting marriage? I see an increasing number of religious and even secular groups supporting marriage these days. The reason for this is because traditional marriage is a reflection of God on earth. 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
