Conceived in Rape & Other Exceptions

Brothers,

This video illustrates the power women and men have when they tell the truth about abortion from their own expereinces. Encouraging countless more people to do the same continues to be my passion as you and I discussed some time ago. God willing, I pray you and a few other key people will have a role to play in helping the victims of abortion find their voices like those in this video.

Brother Joseph L. Gubasta, Ph.D.

2014 Retreat Talks with Rev. Chistopher Saliga, O.P.


Sponsored by: The Knights of Columbus, Elder Council

Every successful Christian leader looks for and sees God’s face, listens for and hears His voice. We can come to see and actually know God, Who is present to us in every situation of our lives. This vision and knowledge is essential for you and me to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:16-20). The theme for the 2014 Retreat is “Listen to me! Go and make disciples of all nations!”

Good of the Order - Called to Defend Our Faith and the Church

Has anyone here ever tried ice fishing, i.e., drilling a hole in the ice on a frozen lake and dropped in a fishing line? There are other things these fishermen do but I’d like to focus on the fishing part.

Scanning many lakes in some of our northern states it’s common to see fishing shacks, or people standing around or sitting on a stool looking down at their feet, or so it seems. Sometimes vehicles are seen on the ice too.

When it gets below freezing for a long enough time lake water will freeze to depths that create a solid surface strong enough to support considerable weight. I’ve driven on such ice and observed these scenes many times.

Make A Difference! Building Homes, Changing Lives

    Based upon the Catechism of the Catholic Church, this series answers three questions of the deepest importance to any practicing Catholic, or person looking for a better understanding of our faith: What does a Catholic believe?, How does the Catholic worship?, and How does the Catholic live?
