There is a difference between serving the public and killing the public, as Fr. Frank Pavone likes to say. Any politician who thinks murdering children makes for a successful public policy should not be worthy of anyone’s vote. Yet, we see politicians stumping for the “right” to have one’s own child dismembered.[click to continue...]
I admit it. I stand corrected on the definition of limbo.
This is me saying mea culpa.
I am eating a slice of humble pie.
I overstepped and misunderstood.
As so many tried to set me straight, I finally realized the error I made.
In my ignorance I got sloppy and failed to be precise in my language.[click to continue...]
Christians who support a Biblical world view have a hard time wrapping their minds around this supposed redefinition of marriage.
After all, didn’t God create mankind “male and female”? (Gen 5:2).
Didn’t Christ Himself affirm that human beings were created “male and female”? (Matt 19:4, Mark 10:6).

You may have heard it posited before. Perhaps a deceased, unborn child can be credited with the grace of baptism of desire, because the child’s parents desired to baptize their child upon birth.

I have seen comments in chatrooms and on social media where couples lament that NFP “failed” them and they became pregnant. They swear they practiced the steps as their instructor told them to do for charting. And despite their best efforts, they still became pregnant.[click to continue...]
Christ predicted there would come a time when people would say “blessed are the barren.” Is this not the age we live in?[click to continue...]
I interviewed Ramona Trevino, in the past, for ProLife365.com’s Pro-Life Warrior Spotlight Series. She ran a Planned Parenthood clinic doing abortion referrals. Then God intervened, giving her the grace to get out. Now she is an author and national speaker.[click to continue...]
In the most-recent, Winter 2016 edition of Celebrate Life Magazine, I had the honor of being published in their wonderful magazine.[click to continue...]
However, He has given us no revelation that this is, in fact, what He does for babies who die without being baptized. In fact, the Holy Spirit has led the Catholic Church to just the opposite/ revelation. In the Second Council of Lyons and the Council of Florence, the Holy Spirit led the Church to assert dogmatically that such souls do go to limbo.[click to continue...]
Yet, contraception seeks to put a wall up between the spouses.
It says to one another, “I love you, except I reject your fertility.” Clearly, this is anything but a totality in exchange of persons during the conjugal act.
