Souls in Purgatory

This week will begin the month of November. We end October with a secular holiday of Halloween and begin the new month of November with All Saints Day, a Holy Day of Obligation. Halloween started as a pagan feast day that demanded a sacrifice to the pagan gods. The priests of the old Irish pagan religion demanded a sacrifice from the harvest. They would knock on every door demanding the food for sacrificing to the pagan gods. When the person opened the door they would say, “trick or treat,” meaning, get us the food for sacrifice or we will put a curse on you. Not my idea of a great holiday. Continue reading

Of Courage, Humanae Vitae, and the Martyrdom of Speaking Up

When I got to St. Anthony’s for Mass last Saturday, I noticed the bulletins in the rack had the same cover as the ones at my own parish. “Canonization of Saint Paul VI & Saint Óscar Romero,” they read across the top, “October 14, 2018.” Beneath was a portrait of the two men side by side: Paul with his white papal skullcap (or zucchetto), the bespectacled Archbishop with his episcopal reddish one. …

Our Own Gosnell “House of Horrors” in Rockford

The Gosnell story is challenging for everybody, but especially for 
“Pro-Choice” advocates. Their only comeback is that the Gosnell situation is rare. But we have had our own Gosnell “House of Horrors” here in this area of Rockford Illinois. Remember the NIWC closing? Here is an old link to refresh your minds: http://prolifecorner.com/pro-life-victory-in-illinois-n-i-w-c/. 

Other places like Texas has it’s “House of Horrors too: https://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/15/another-gosnell-report-shows-texas-abortion-doc-kills-babies-born-alive/

They even sell the baby parts for scientists to make mice brains more human like: https://www.lifenews.com/2018/10/17/nih-spends-13-5-million-on-aborted-baby-parts-to-transplant-their-brain-tissue-into-mice/

The pro-choice advocates want us to believe they are for women and the good of all humanity. Their propaganda is that they are the norm. Is this the norm you want? These are just four examples in the driving force of the “Pro-Choice” movement (Gosnell, NIWC, Texas and NIH). It is the norm that has been hidden for too long.

Elections are coming soon. Is this what you want to stand for? Is this what you want to vote for?
