78 open hours!

A special THANK YOU to all of the wonderful men who have stepped up and taken on so many of this campaign’s overnight hours.  Sunday (today) is Day 19.  We have 21 more days to go of this beautiful campaign.

 
As you know, this past week was a rainy one.  Thanks to all who dealt with some pretty heavy rain to witness for LIFE! One group of 7 who were out on Oct. 10th gave witness outside during a very heavy 45 minute downpour.  After the heavy rain ended, God rewarded them with a full rainbow!  His love never fails!
 
Can you give your witness for LIFE on the sidewalk this week?

40 Days for Life mid point Prayer Vigil 
 
Please join Fr. Jorge Miramontes (of Holy Family Parish in Waterloo & Marshal) for our 40 Days for Life mid point prayer vigil at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 17 on the sidewalk outside of Planned Parenthood, 3706 Orin Rd., Madison.  We will praise God for all he’s done so far with this current campaign and pray for the strength and perseverance for finish it well.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

If I have despised the cause of my male or female servant when they complained against me, what then shall I do when God rises up? When He punishes, how shall I answer Him? Did not He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same One fashion us in the womb?  

—Job 31:13-15

God, forgive us when we try to explain away the obligation we have to help others who need help. Enable us to not devalue them because they are in the circumstance that they are in, but to see them for who they are, those, who like us, were formed by your hand in their mother’s womb. Amen.
