The Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, appeared six times to three shepherd children (near the town of Fatima, Portugal between May 13 and October 13, 1917, 100 years ago. Appearing to the children, the Blessed Virgin told them that She had been sent by God with a message for every man, woman and child living in our century. Coming at a time when civilization was torn apart and divided by war and bloody violence, She promised that Heaven would grant peace to all the world if Her requests for prayer, reparation and consecration were heard and obeyed.
Our Lady of Fatima explained to the children that war is a punishment for sin and warned that God would further discipline the world for its disobedience to His Will by means of war, hunger and the persecution of the Church, the Holy Father and the Catholic Faithful. God’s Mother prophesied that Russia would be God’s chosen “instrument of discipline,” spreading the “errors” of atheism, moral relativism, and materialism across the earth, fomenting wars and persecuting the Catholic Faithful everywhere.

ProLifeCorner- By Larry Plachno-Sustainability has recently become an attractive catchword in business and industry. In addition to the obvious meaning that a particular procedure or product can be ongoing or continuous, it also tends to carry the connotations of being healthy and eco-friendly.
Our society is no longer sustainable due in large part to abortion and related actions or attitudes. In fact, our society has become unsustainable in three different ways. One is that we can no longer agree on good and evil or common goals. The second is that we have moved to harming society rather than supporting it. And the third is that because of abortion and related actions we have become an endangered species and our society is dying out.
You probably will not find any of these three critical items discussed in the mainstream media to any extent. Yes, topics will come up from time to time but their negative impact on our society is rarely mentioned and little will be said about abortion and related decisions and actions as the cause.

ProLifeCorner-By Larry Plachno- It was 150 years ago, on April 9, 1865, that General Robert E. Lee surrendered to Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia after finding his troops surrounded and outnumbered. This ended the Civil War. Or did it? Some people suggest that this same battle continues today in other forms.
Many people will acknowledge that the bloody battle was fought over whether people could declare a group to be inferior or less than human. Slavery was legal in the early days of the United States of America. The 1787 Constitutional Convention witnessed the famous “Three-fifths Compromise” whereby slaves would be counted as only three-fifths of a person for determining representation and taxation.

ProLifeCorner.com- by Larry Plachno- Many of us remember the days of the “Cold War” with Russia when ideological differences prompted fear of nuclear war and caused us to look at Russia as a Godless country. As a result, fallout shelters, numerous novels of intrigue and even the James Bond 007 movies have forever changed us. Continue reading →

By 1934, the women in Moscow were having three abortions for every live birth.

Joseph Stallin, the mass murderer, was so concerned that he banned abortion in 1936 fearing a sharp decline in the Russian population. Nikita Krushchev, Stalin’s successor, brought back legalized abortion in 1955. Three years later, in 1958, there were five million abortion in the Soviet Union. In 1970, Russia had 3,000 abortion doctors performing 7.2 million abortions annually. In the 1980s, Soviet citizens accounted for 5-6% of the world’s population but 25% of the world’s abortions.

ProLifeCorner.com- 2/26/2013- By Frank Munda- Memoirs of the Communist Infiltration Into the Church by Marie Carré I just completed reading for the second time a short little book with an even a shorter title, “AA 1025”. The first time I read this book was well over 20 years ago and although I found the book disturbing, it somehow did not register all that clearly with me at that time. We all know how smart we can be when we look back with that so-called 20/20 hindsight. With hindsight, all of a sudden things are very, very clear. We know that Holy Mother Church has been under attack by many groups, organizations and the media in general, especially for the last 50 years. Some may feel that these attacks are random, others might feel that because the Church has the courage to speak out against sin in the world, that is why the Church is under attack. Continue reading →
