I’m late to the party sharing this item — I’ve been busy the past few days getting my youngest son off to college. More on that later, but for now I want to bring you up to speed on a few news items that have occurred this week. First off:
Many of you have heard of and participated in this amazing nationwide campaign to end abortion and to promote positive pro-life causes. Today is day three of the forty days. It’s likely that there is a campaign happening in your community. Find all of the locations here.
If you’ve never stood in front of an abortion clinic before, you might have a misconception about the goal of 40 days for life. You might think it involves vitriolic yelling or in-your-face tactics. I can tell you as someone who has quietly participated the past two years in my home town that 40 days for life is truly a blessing. In my community, we stand silently in prayer for an hour, a safe distance from the door to our clinic. The times I’ve spent in our campaign have been a true grace: silently praying the Rosary for all of those impacted by pro-life causes, but also for women and babies in general.
I hope you’ll check out the 40 Days for Life website and consider heading out to spend an hour to pray. If you’ve participated in the past, please share a comment below to encourage others to get involved. You may find that the life you change — the soul you bless — is your very own.
