Stories from the 40 Days of Life
Dear friends in Christ,
During these 40 days of life, we turn our attention, in a special way, to pray for and assist to stop women who might have an abortion. People go outside of abortion clinics, praying for, and encouraging the women not to go through with the abortion. Life Site News shares four "success" stories. I put success in quotations because while they stopped abortions (411 times during the campaign, praise God!), but they saved 411 unborn children from being aborted. This, in my mind, can't be measured in success because we are talking about unborn children being saved. They can be called "saves", as there were 411 unborn babies saved from imminent death by abortion. This is so much more than a success.
We pray that those who are at the abortion mills praying may continue to be blessed with many saves, and may those who are contemplating abortion realize the precious gift they have inside of them, and that they will be blessed abundantly by turning to the Lord in prayer, and following the will of God, which is not abortion. Both the woman and the child deserve better.
May you remain close to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May God bless you and keep you. Defend the life of all.
