Women’s March: Many Running From the Truth


The organizers of the Women’s March on Washington on January 21 are dictating who are not welcome to participate.  Prolife women, including a pregnancy center and an organization called New Wave Feminists, have been officially told not to come.

Armageddon? Exorcist Advises: Don’t Even Think About It


Are the End Times upon us?  You could make a case for it. But don’t. That’s the advice of Father Vincent Lampert, the designated exorcist for the archdiocese of Indianapolis, who trained at the North American College in Rome and assisted with over 40 exorcisms with longtime Italian exorcist Father Carmine De Filippis.

Making Peace with the Weatherman



            My father once said, while we were talking about the weather: “Don’t forget who the weatherman is.”   It’s God of course. I knew that but I didn’t always think about it. Now that I do, complaining about the weather no longer feels as benign as it once did.  God sends us our weather, so I try to embrace it these days. This year has been especially challenging in North Dakota with 3 winter storms already—2 of them blizzards—and temperatures that will freeze your face in less time than it takes to scrape ice off a windshield.

How to be Happier in 2017

It’s an irony that being overly concerned with our own happiness causes us to be less happy. Happiness is one of those things best obtained by giving it to others. Selfishness, instead, eats souls. Yet these days, it is a national pastime.

The Election Isn’t Over and Neither Should be Our Prayers

How often do we storm heaven, get what we asked for and then our prayers quickly trail off?   After the election, I wrote Trump Needs Our Prayers Now More Than Ever.  I was never without serious reservations about a Trump presidency, but as the best pro-life alternative available, I was hopeful.  But election night did not seal the deal as we are seeing.

10 Tips on How to Avoid Mouth Problems

Mouth problems can be avoided with proper care.  Practicing good dental hygiene involves being careful about what goes into your mouth.  Good spiritual hygiene includes being careful about what comes out of it. “It is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person,” (Matthew 15:11).
Here are some tips for keeping your mouth and soul in good condition.

One Waiting for Us in Heaven

By Nellie Edwards at PaintedFaith.com
  “Hey Mark, we’re going to have another baby,” I announced to my husband after taking a home pregnancy kit. We looked at each other, wide-eyed. We had recently added an orphan boy from Kenya, so we were already a family of eleven. We shared a strong understanding that each little soul is a gift from God that will last an eternity. Still, I’d be forty-seven and Mark forty-eight when this baby was due.

Government Now Entering Our Churches

     
        The high sounding word “tolerance” has become a ruse for coercion of liberal agendas.  The “wall of separation,” so often distorted from Thomas Jefferson’s intent to point out the need to prevent government from meddling in religion, is crumbling. 
      Despite pediatricians identifying youth transgenderism as "child abuse"), the left is demanding that everyone, even churches comply with transgender acceptance. Last month, Massachusetts enacted a law forcing everyone, including churches, to use the gender identity of a person's choice. It is the most oppressive LGBT non-discrimination laws in the U.S. Churches are specifically mentioned as needing to comply.

Receive These 7 Graces Promised by Our Lady

Everyone suffers and everyone needs graces.  The devotion to our Lady of Sorrows unites our suffering with that of the Blessed Mother’s.  Imagine what it was like for her to watch her beloved son beaten and bloodied, carrying the cross he was then crucified on.  We can’t even imagine.

Men, Abortion, and the Sexual Revolution



Women are harmed in ways they didn’t expect after abortions.  Motherhood runs deep and abortion doesn't end it but only changes it. For those coming to grips with the truth, programs like Silent No More Awareness Campaign and Rachel's Vineyard administer to their hurting souls.
But what about men?  They had no real choice in the matter; only the possibility of making a suggestion if they were the type to stick around.
