Why it's time to dump your pro-abort phone company!
FREE BOOKby signing on with Pro-Life Communicationsa totally Pro Life phone company andinternet provider that cares first and foremost for the Sanctity of Life
How would you like to receive a Christmas gift that keeps on giving and giving not only for you but for us and for the unborn and the entire culture of life? Sounds too good to be true! Believe us, this is the real thing and you are only a few minutes away from not only saving money on your phone bills, but also in discovering a company that truly cares for the unborn and puts its money where its heart is in promoting the Sanctity of Life!
    Pro Life Communications     In our editorial this week, we share with you a very special project that is a win-win-win situation for all. We introduce you to a dynamic Catholic couple from the midwest - Joe and Jane Dalton, owners of Pro Life Communications, a strictly Pro Life phone company in St. Louis that can provide better service than the pro-abort giant phone conglomerates such AT&T, MCI and Sprint as well as others of that ilk who pad the coffers of Planned Parenthood. Pro Life Communications is about promoting parenthood and family values and 100% of their net profits go back into promoting the Sanctity of Life. They not only offer a very competitive across-the-board rate under 10 cents all the time, but provide the services that we used to know in those days when you weren't just a number, but a real human being with feelings and the company cared. This company does and because of their impeccable reputation, we can't endorse them enough. In fact, we are so sold on Pro Life Communications and the mission Joe and Jane have accepted from God, that we are willing to send to anyone who signs up with them the inspiring book "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..." as our gift to you because we believe in Joe and Jane's apostolate so much and the benefits to all, especially the innocent unborns in our constant crusade to end the Holocaust of the Womb. So this Christmas, do yourself a favor. Pray on it, look into it and we're relatively sure you'll agree this is a winning formula that can only help all. For our very positive commentary, A Christmas gift that keeps on giving for Life! see CATHOLIC PewPOINT

    On December 22nd we bring you Sister Mary Lucy Astuto's CHRISTMAS MESSAGE in the first of seven such salutations from our contributing staff of writers including the Holy Father's pre-Christmas Message from his most recent Wednesday Papal Audience before Christmas. Today we also bring you the Seventh Day of the Nine-Day Christmas Antiphon Novena patterned on Las Posadas, the Mexican tradition of Mary and Joseph's journey to Bethlehem leading to the Birth of the Messiah.
    SATURDAY


    In the December 23rd issue we present the Ninth Lesson on our special series on the Charism of Conjugal Love AT ONE WITH GOD as we illustrate vividly one man's journey to the altar and how he deftly escaped the swirling, treacherous swirls of the world, the flesh and the devil by clinging to his Faith despite the obstacles to safely navigate the Bridge of Grace over troubled waters that led him to his soul mate for life and how God led them to the altar. The editor shows that if he can make it, anyone can with God's help and graces.
    SUNDAY


    On December 24th, the 4th Sunday of Advent and Christmas Eve Vigil, we bring you Pope John Paul II's most recent address before Christmas in which he delivers his 2000 pre-Christmas Message in emphasizing the importance of Christmas when we "cooperate with Godís plan by committing ourselves more generously to the cause of peace and understanding among peoples. In this way the message of peace which the angels announced to the shepherds at Bethlehem will become a reality in our lives."
    MONDAY

    The Nativity of Our Lord - CHRISTMAS

    On December 25th the Solemnity of the glorious Christmas Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we bring you the traditional Chrismtmas messages from our contributing writers and this publication's spiritual director Father Al Svobodny, OMI as we celebrate the true second millennium anniversary of the birth of the Messiah.

    TUESDAY

    St. Stephen


    On December 26th we commemorate the Feast of the First Martyr of the Church Saint Stephen who was stoned to death by the order of the Church's chief persecutor Saul. It was the beginning of a long period of persecution as the blood of the martyrs would become the seed of Faith and leading this charge would be the man who ordered Stephen's death - Saint Paul.
    WEDNESDAY

    St. John the Evangelist


    On December 27th we celebrate the Feast of the Beloved Disciple SAINT JOHN THE EVANGELIST. He was the only Apostle not to suffer martyrdom and he was the one whom Christ placed in charge of His Blessed Mother Mary at the foot of the Cross. John's Gospel affirms the divinity of Jesus and his Apocalyptic writings are the culmination of Divine Revelation.
    THURSDAY



    On December 28th, the Feast of the Holy Innocents, the infant martyrs who were murdered by Herod, we bring you the 211th installment of our on-going series APPRECIATION OF THE PRECIOUS GIFT OF OUR FAITH as we continue with the 5th Commandment, today focusing on Bad Example and Scandal as a great danger.
