ProLifeCorner.com – 8-1-2016 – by Staff – We know many of our readers look forward to articles from Mark Pickup, one of the valiant pro=life leaders in both Canada and the United States. This article truly educates all of us on suffering and the value of suffering. As you may know, Mark has been dealing with MS for over 30 years. His perspective is one of faith, courage, and great wisdom. At one point or another all of us have suffered in some way during our lives. We here at the Pro Life Corner have personal knowledge of people who are suffering from cancer or other terrible illnesses and who are doing so with such dignity and joy, yes joy, for life. They value their suffering and offer it to our Lord, who suffered so much for all of us. If a book on great courage and faith were to be written today, we know Mark and our other friends would surely be included in it. Continue reading →
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.

ProLifeCorner- Freeport Illinois- By Frank Munda- We recently celebrated Independence Day, 2015. As I look back on my many years here on Earth I have had many joys and many sorrows, and yes many regrets; regrets of things that I did and things that I failed to do. God has blessed me with a wonderful wife, awesome children who married wonderful spouses, and they in turn have been blessed with wonderful children themselves.
There have been dark times as well. The darkness of Vietnam had just slipped away from the consciousness of many American citizens when the greatest travesty of injustice came upon the scene; when an activist controlled Supreme Court illegally and immorally created law declaring that a mother now had the right to kill her baby through abortion. Many of our young readers are probably not even aware that what occurred in January of 1973 was an illegal move by the Supreme Court. The three branches of government, Legislative, Judicial, and Executive are supposed to be checks and balances. The Judicial branch of the government is to rule on existing laws or proposed laws presented by the Legislative branch of the government. This was not the case in January 1973. Through Roe versus Wade and Doe versus Bolton, the Supreme Court created law; a law that states a woman has a right to kill her baby in what should be the safest place in the world- the mothers womb.

ProLifeCorner.com- Pastor Timothy Barr’s homily today cautions us to not to interpret reality through our emotions. He explains that passions are not a bad thing but they must be guided by the truth. That truth is Jesus Christ. When we are obedient to the truth there is great joy. He further stated that the man is the head of the family but the woman is the heart of the family sharing equal responsibility and, hopefully through their teachings and actions, are leading their children to heaven.
