Today is the first day of LifeSite’s year-end Christmas fundraising campaign. The Christmas campaign is by far our most important fundraiser of the year – so much so that the success of the coming year depends in large measure on the success of this campaign! This year we must raise a minimum of $300,000 by December 23rd to continue our mission into 2017.


A very turbulent year in Canada included:

  • the legalization of euthanasia and assisted suicide by Parliament
  • a decision by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to fast-track a “transgender” bill that poses a massive threat to Canadians’ freedom
  • a plan by Newfoundland to ban free speech outside abortion clinics
  • leading members of the Conservative Party, as well as Prime Minister Trudeau, marching in Toronto’s “gay pride” parade
  • the ongoing battle over Ontario’s graphic sex-ed curriculum
  • the imposition of another sex-ed curriculum on kindergarteners in Quebec…

…to name just a few sobering developments!

Indeed, there is growing darkness and confusion within the culture, and – perhaps more painful to many of our readers – even within the Catholic Church, as we have this year witnessed the unprecedented situation (at least in modern times) of cardinals openly disagreeing with cardinals, bishops with bishops, and a widespread uncertainty about the direction the Church is taking on central moral issues.

And even though we know that Christ has already won the victory, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail, our hearts cannot help at times but feel troubled.

In the midst of this confusion, there is a greater need than ever for clear voices that are unafraid to speak TRUTH without compromise – particularly the life-giving teachings of St. Pope John Paul II’s Gospel of Life and Splendor of Truth, with the latter especially being neglected. LifeSiteNews has striven to be one such voice for nearly 20 years.

Your support for our Christmas campaign means that we can continue to be an uncompromising beacon of truth for literally tens of millions of people in the U.S. and around the world into 2017.

Without the generosity of readers like you, LifeSiteNews would not exist, and would not continue to grow year after year after year. Today, we must ask for your help again as we close the final chapter on 2016 and brace for the challenges that lie ahead in the coming year.


The Christmas season is an extremely special time for the whole staff of LifeSite. After all, every single thing that we do flows out from the birth of Christ!

Recall the words of the late Pope St. John Paul II: “Christmas….reveals the full meaning of every human birth, and the joy which accompanies the birth of the Messiah is thus seen to be the foundation and fulfilment of joy at every child born into the world.”

Contained within the simple scene at Bethlehem is the complete template for fighting the Culture of Death and building a Culture of Life: the gift of life, the role of the traditional family, and the peace that comes in the knowledge that Love Himself has entered the world.

With your help, LifeSite is determined to continue to proclaim the message of Bethlehem in its fullness, serving as the go-to source for the most crucial news on life, family, faith and freedom!

As troubling as many of the events in our country and the culture are, let us never forget that we are to find strength and consolation in the celebration of Christmas and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ – the fulfilment of God’s promise to free his people once and for all from sin and death.

In Christ – the way, the truth and the life – we rejoice, and in Him we have certain hope!

This Christmas, prayerfully consider supporting the vital LifeSite truth mission.

We are not just another news agency.


We are not just another news agency. Our growing team of professional journalists have joined our team because they feel a personal calling to devote their life to the mission of defending and protecting life and family – a demanding job, I can assure you!

We are the #1 most-read online news source that offers investigative reporting on the issues that matter the most: life, family, faith and culture.

With millions of people visiting our site each month, it would only take 600 people to make a donation of $500 for us to reach our goal.

Whatever you can give, whether it be $35, $50, $100, or $500+, we hope you will be as generous as you can this Christmas.

Please help us continue to fight fearlessly on behalf of the unborn, the family, faith and freedom – as we have for the past 20 years.
