    His obedience of faith was manifested, as the Gospel tells us, after an angel of God revealed to him that it was through the Holy Spirit that the child had been conceived in Mary. When Joseph awoke, “he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and took his wife into his home” without hesitation or objection.  (Matthew 1:20)  When Herod sought to kill the infant Jesus, Saint Joseph obediently took him and the Blessed Mother to safety. (Matthew 2:13-14) As Pope Saint John II pointed out in Redemptoris Custos, “already at the beginning of redemption, after Mary,...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., June 13, 2014 ( -- The claim by Melinda Gates, a Catholic, that the multi-billion dollar Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation does not fund abortion is "an outright deception," says Father Shenan J. Boquet, president of Human Life International. Gates has made headlines in recent days after she wrote June 2 that the foundation "has decided not to fund abortion."

    A Gallup poll released May 30 showing large majorities of Americans now agree that homosexual relations, contraception, divorce, and fornication are "morally acceptable” highlights the need for strong preaching on moral issues, says the president of Human Life International. “The acceptability of these evils is a direct result of people not being engaged in public debate against those trying to force us to accept these issues,” Father Shenan Boquet told LifeSiteNews. “That’s why it’s so important for faith leaders to speak out and find new ways to help the public understand moral teachings on controversial issues.” Father Shenan Boquet, president...

This was the fourth March for Life and Family to take place in Poland. Each year it is co-organized by Human Life International - Poland. The march began at the symbolic monument to the Shipyard Workers victims of communism, which displays three crosses with crucified anchors. Some of the marchers carried long strips of cloth on which was inscribed the full text of the Vatican document,...

    With a few days’ perspective since the election, we can see things a bit more clearly. We should be honest about the situation for the pro-life community as we can best understand it. The outcome of Tuesday’s election does not bode well for life and family — that is, for our most vulnerable brothers and sisters at the beginning and near the end of life; and for the natural, foundational institution of every society. That this administration has made it a priority to attack both is well known, as is their sustained assault on the freedom of religion. Just as...

    ARLINGTON, Va. (CN) - A Roman Catholic priest "kissed (a woman) on all parts of her body" during a so-called "exorcism" session, and "frequently explained full, passionate kisses as 'blowing the Holy Spirit into' her," the woman claims in court. Jane Doe sued the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, its Bishop Paul Loverde - who is not the priest accused of the abuse - and Human Life International and the HLI Endowment Inc., of Charlottesville, in Arlington County Court.

    Today's Gospel : Mark 1:21-28 There is  a controversy brewing in todays society about the reality of demons. Are they real? Are they a psychosis? Demonology - the study and doctrine of demons or evil spirits - is not exclusive to Christianity or Psychology. And while doctrine about them vary they are commonly held in many cultures. It is our western "enlightened" culture that puts almost no emphasis on them. Yet study and experience show that not only do they exist but can co-exist with psychological pathologies. Many counselors have noted very specific criteria where a Multiple Personality sufferer also...

    In An Evening with an Exorcist, Fr. Thomas Euteneuer explains the anatomy of an exorcism. As a practicing exorcist, he discusses how a person may become possessed and what goes on during an exorcism. He also explains the connection between abortion and demonic possession, from the abortion demon's invitation into the US with the Supreme Court's passing of Roe v. Wade in 1973 to the ritualized sacrifice of unborn children that goes on in Planned Parenthood "clinics" today. Exorcism is "Christ's victory over the devil" and "the vocation of the Church Militant." Listen as Rev. Euteneuer strengthens your faith and...

A June 2 Associated Press (AP) article titled: “Suspect in doctor killing railed against abortion” exemplifies the attempt. Although the AP professes to be an unbiased news source, the only pro-lifers interviewed expressed support for Tiller’s slaying and a substantial part of the story outlined the increased security measures abortion mills will now assume. Although every mainstream pro-life organization issued immediate condemnations of the killing, the article lacked a single quote from any of these...

We did our best to avoid committing any violations of integrity, not merely to avoid penalties, but more so because we sought to form ourselves as honorable, trustworthy men deserving of our uniforms.Ironically, the...

Clearly Kennedy has been a forty year force to reckon with in the US Senate, but lionizing him for his headstrong political partisanship over four decades is a little like saying that sticking around for a long time and being opinionated qualifies as a “legacy.” That very record of anti-life advocacy is the measure by which his soul will be judged.   While I pray for Sen.

If we really wish to beat the abortion culture we have to mature as a movement. Thirty-five years of the same strategies and ideas have not gained us the victory we seek because the fight against the most pervasive spiritual evil that has ever entered the world can only be won on God’s terms. The pro-life movement has invested more in political and cultural change than in spiritual change. Let us not be afraid to...

    The Church gives us this disturbing feast of the martyrdom of the innocent children of Bethlehem and its surrounding region, only three days after Christmas. Pro-lifers naturally connect the feast day with the modern-day massacre of the pre-born innocents. One aspect of the account that is seldom mentioned in modern parallels, however, is the selective nature of the killing. Out of fear of a rival king, Herod ordered the deaths of baby boys just as in earlier times Pharaoh told the midwives to kill all Hebrew sons at birth to ensure their continued enslavement in Egypt.The pagan Roman writer Macrobius...

    1. What is an exorcism?Q: I saw your article about a post-exorcism experience on Spirit Daily. Just what is an exorcism and is it anything like the movies? Exorcisms are rarely similar to what is portrayed in the movies such as The Exorcist or The Exorcism of Emily Rose (see below). There are certainly points of comparison, but Hollywood needs theatrics to dress up or sensationalize an experience of something extraordinary like the supernatural battle against evil. The exaggerations of Hollywood only serve to diminish our sense of the reality of evil and the existence of the devil.... Fundamentally, an...

    Games Don’t Make Heroes By: A Baseball Fan From the time he was five and through his whole life he followed that one dream. The dream that so many boys dream of: to someday be the winning pitcher in the World Series. Finally in 2004 it came. The day had arrived. It was the St. Louis Cardinals vs. the Boston Red Sox. Was it the pressure of that dream that got to him or was his mind not yet trained, his concentration not yet honed? Had he not gained the ability to out think his opponent? Jeff Suppan lost his...

    Baby Three Hundred Million The US population is set to cross the 300 million mark next week, a sign that our population is prosperous not only in dollars but also in people. But instead of celebrating, many Americans will look at their kids, nervously wondering whether they are contributing to the inevitable downfall of civilization that we've been told will follow as our population grows. You see, we have been indoctrinated to think that more babies are a bad thing, especially if those babies may not have pre-paid college tuition accounts while in utero. Because of our anti-baby bias, Americans,...

    If the Democratic Party takes control of the U.S. House or Senate in November’s elections, a newly aggressive campaign to promote permissive abortion is certain, a leading pro-life legislator told The Wanderer in an interview here. “They’re going to try to make every taxpayer pay for every abortion,” Cong. Chris Smith (R., N.J.) said. Meanwhile, Smith said, pro-life legislation would be left to languish. “Not only would our bills not come up,” but pro-abortionists’ bills would be pushed forward for action, the pro-life leader said.... ....Both Smith and Jason Jones, media director at Human Life International (HLI), based in Front...

    Recent Acts of Abortion Violence Show Pro-Lifers Peaceful, Group Saysby Steven Editor October 3, 2006Washington, DC ( -- Recent acts of violence related to abortion show that abortion and its legalization is more responsible for violence than pro-life advocates. A leading pro-life group says the acts back up its research showing pro-life people are less violent than abortion advocates. Human Life International recently unveiled a web site featuring the results of its research showing over 7,000 acts of violence and illegal activities by those who support or practice abortion. Brian Clowes, Ph.D., senior analyst for HLI, points to several...

    A new research project is raising serious doubt about claims from abortion supporters who say pro-lifers are violent people. The study suggests that, despite their assertions to the contrary, pro-choicers may be the more frequent perpetrators of violence.Throughout the abortion debate in America, pro-abortion activists have accused pro-lifers of spreading violence; however, Human Life International's senior analyst, Brian Clowes, has just completed a project that suggests the complete opposite is the case. "Seven murders are carried out by so called pro-life people in the time period 1993 to 1998," he notes, "and yet we've documented over 500 murders done by...

    Adamant in Our Support of the Pope A friend of mine offered a tongue-in-cheek reflection about the recent flare-up of Islamic fanaticism concerning the Pope’s remarks. “There is a large group of picketers in front of the Cathedral demanding that the Pope apologize for Notre Dame's loss to Michigan this past Saturday!” Right on! But that humorous portrayal of a protest indicates that there are humane ways for decent people to handle their differences, and killing innocent people is not one of them. Quite frankly I’m disgusted by barbarians acting in the name of God. When savages burn the pope...

    Enough is Enough!I have to admit frankly that the recent blessing given by President Bush to the interim FDA commissioner on the Plan B pill is a mystery to me. Apparently he is blind to the holocaust he has just unleashed. He very forthrightly said last week that he "agreed with" Dr. Andrew von Eschenbach's rotten logic that this drug should be sold over the counter, and that immediately became government policy. Von Eschenbach's total cave in to abortion-extreme Senators Hillary Clinton and Patty Murray was what they call in politics, a trade-off; worldly power and prestige in exchange for...
