40 Days for Life
Tomorrow, the Fall Prayer Campaign begins. Please visit the National Campaign website to find the location nearest to you. Consider praying there, even if for just an hour. It is a peaceful way of bringing about an end to the scourge of abortion. The primary purpose is to pray that through the power of God, this horrible practice will be confronted for what it is, killing babies, and that the scales may fall from people's eyes and end sacrificing lives at the altar of convenience. We have prayed many times outside the nearest facility, which we have come to call "abortuary", despite its name "Women's Health".
Tomorrow morning, at 7 AM our Bishop will be at our nearest location to begin the next 40 days to pray for the cause for life. This campaign is ecumenical, but the coordinators are Catholics who faithfully pray at this location every weekend. If you can't go to a location, or are far away from one, please consider giving an hour or two to unite yourself spiritually to this great effort. It's a matter of life!
