It would seem that being raised by devout Catholic parents who prayed the rosary daily would have pointed to a good and holy future for Bartolo Longo. And it did. Eventually. First, he strayed so far from God that he became a satanic priest.

Wait a minute, I thought the #MeToo movement made it clear that it's not okay for men to pressure women for sex in exchange for giving the women what they want? But it's okay for women to use sex to get what they want? Actress Alyssa Milano thinks so.

Our Lady of Las Lajas is a story of a miraculous event with an image left behind in a cave. In 1754, in South America, on the border between Colombia and Ecuador, is an image known as Our Lady of Las Lajas on a cave wall.

Abortion advocates have shown us their hand. They are even more heartless than we imagined. Their commitment to end the lives of babies was made clear when New York legalized abortions right up to birth, Vermont and Rhode Island also passed radical abortion and infanticide laws, and other states are attempting to do the same.

I write this on St. Patrick’s Day, but
these are three beautiful Irish prayers for spiritual strength and protection all year round.
I’ve adapted the first two for families (replacing “this child” with “our children” in the first one, and “you” with “our children” in the second.) The third prayer, I pray daily for spiritual protection. Interviewing exorcists and writing against false apparitions has shown me it’s a powerful prayer.

March 19 is the anniversary of a time when Catholic women of Brazil picked up their most powerful weapon—the rosary—and drove communism from their country.
In 1964, the oppressive President Joao Goulart had appointed many communists to positions of leadership. Humble, faithful women understood the power of the Blessed Mother’s intercession and formed rosary groups. They showed up at political rallies and drown out speakers by loudly praying the rosary.

Democrats voted down the born-alive bill that would have given legal protection for infants that survive an abortion attempt. While pro-life advocates are enraged, Democrats claim there has been no real change in actual practice with the defeat of this bill. And they are right. Their decline in the respect for life is simply continuing to advance.

In the Bible, the mother of our Savior Jesus Christ is called Mary and we are told all generations shall call her blessed (Luke 1:48). And so, we do. The Blessed Mother is an endearing name throughout the Christian and even Muslim world.
(Note: Mary is mentioned in the Koran even more times than in the Bible. Muslims believe the Virgin Mary was the mother of a great prophet, not, the Son of God, however, they hold her in highest regard.)

“Again, Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life’” (John 8:2).

Is the devil stronger in the world today? “No,” according to an exorcist I once interviewed. “There’s just more people willing to play his game.” The devil has always been about his business of tempting us, but in the days when more people went to church on Sundays and prayed every day—even public schools use to start the day with prayer—people availed themselves more to God’s protection.
