“The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.” – Thomas Jefferson

 
Thinking about the above quote from Thomas Jefferson (one of our nation’s founding fathers), it would seem that our government went way off track in 1973 when it put forth the tragic decision of Roe v. Wade that does not care for human life but only promotes its destruction. 
 
Show your care for human life this week!  Sign up for an hour or more to witness forLIFE on the sidewalk outside of Planned Parenthood where the care of human life is at all time low.
 
Also, please keep the Supreme Court Justice hearings in your prayers!

Join Fr. Richard Heilman for National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children Prayer Vigil on 9/8

Dear Friends of Vigil for Life,

I'm writing to invite you to join me for an important pro-life prayer service taking place near Madison on Saturday, September 8.

On that day, pro-life Americans will honor the memory of the more than 50 million unborn victims of abortion during the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children.

Solemn prayer services will be held simultaneously at gravesites around the country where abortion victims have been buried, as well as at many other memorial sites dedicated in their honor.

I hope that you will be able to join me for the memorial service taking place in our community as part of the the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children:

     Event: Memorial Service for Victims of Abortion
     When: Saturday, September 8 at 10:30 a.m.
     Location: St. Michael's
     Address: 109 S. Military Road, Dane, WI
     Map: www.mapquest.com/us/wisconsin/saint-michaels-catholic-church-370914369

This solemn memorial service will last approximately one hour. Special guests participating in the event include Fr. Richard Heilman, Pastor at St. Mary's Pine Bluff.He is a regular guest host on Relevant Radio’s The Inner Life, and is the founder of the Knights of Divine Mercy, which is an apostolate for Catholic men’s faith formation.. He is also he founder of the Ladies of Divine Mercy, which is an apostolate for Catholic women’s faith formation. He is the author of the Church Militant Field Manualand the Roman Catholic Man website, which are both dedicated to helping Catholics understand and train for their role in the mission of combating evil and rescuing the souls of our loved ones who have lost the precious gift of faith.

Please come out for this important pro-life event, prayerfully witnessing to the humanity of our unborn brothers and sisters, together with our fellow pro-lifers throughout the country.

In the Sermon on the Mount, our Lord promised us: "Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted." 

On September 8, we seek that divine comfort as we mourn for the victims of abortion. Let us never forget their precious lives as we continue to work and pray for an end to abortion.

Sincerely,

The Team at Vigil for Life

Dear St. Monica, troubled wife and mother,
Many sorrows pierced your heart during your lifetime.
Yet you never despaired or lost faith.
With confidence, persistence and profound faith,
you prayed daily for the conversion
of your beloved husband, Patricius,
and your beloved son, Augustine.

Grant me that same fortitude, patience and trust in the Lord.
Intercede for me, dear St. Monica, for the closure of the Planned Parenthood in Madison, WI
and grant me the grace to accept his will in all things,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever. Amen.

Lord Jesus, You invite all who are burdened to come to you. Allow Your healing Hand to heal your Church. Touch our souls with Your compassion for others; touch our hearts with Your courage and infinite Love for all; touch our minds with Your Wisdom, and may our mouths always proclaim Your praise. Teach us to reach out to You in all our needs, and help us to lead others to You by our examples.
Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring us health in body and spirit that we may serve You with all our strength. Touch gently our lives which you have created, now and forever.  We ask this in your most holy name.
Amen.

Today is the feast day of St. Maximilian Kolbe. Many great things can be said about this humble servant of God.  Many of them stem from his great devotion to the Blessed Mother, Mary Immaculate.

 
“The most holy Mother is Mediatrix of all graces without exception. . . . Therefore the lifeof grace of a soul depends on the degree of its closeness to her. The closer a soul approaches her, the more pure it becomes, the more lively becomes its faith. Its love becomes more beautiful, and all virtues, being the work of grace, are strengthened and vivified. We cannot seek grace anywhere else because she is its Mediatrix.”

Kolbean Prayer to Mary Mother of the Church

Mary, Mother of the Church, I come before you in the spirit of St. Maximilian Kolbe, who consecrated his Franciscan life and work to you without reserve.  You accepted Maximilian’s self-offering; accept me.  You led Maximilian to Christ; lead me.  You formed Maximilian into a mirror of Christ; form me.  Your union with Maximilian provided the backdrop for his works of evangelization and heroic acts of charity.

Please grant, through the intercession of St. Maximilian, that I might fully collaborate with you and the Holy Spirit as an instrument for the upbuilding of Christ’s Church.  In Jesus’ Holy Name. Amen.

 
St. Maximilian Kolbe, pray for us!

PRAYER FOR LIFE
O God, our Creator, all life is in your hands from conception until natural death. Help us to cherish our children and to reverence the awesome privilege of our share in creation. May all people live and die in dignity and love. Bless all those who defend the rights of the unborn, the handicapped and the aged. Enlighten and be merciful toward those who fail to love, and give them peace. Let freedom be tempered by responsibility, integrity and morality. We ask this in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

Prayer For Holy Living in This Fallen World 

Loving Lord how I thank You that in Christ I have Your Holy Spirit living in me to live and work to Your praise and glory. Help me Lord to keep looking to Jesus – and to keep my mind on the things above, not on the things that are of this world system.

Help me I pray to look away from the things of the world and to pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, and to be numbered with those who call on the Lord with a pure and humble heart.

Help me to live my life in a manner that is pleasing to my God – in gentleness towards others and in reverence towards You.

Prevent me I pray from being squeezed into the world’s mould but rather may I be conformed more and more, into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ, and help me to keep my eyes fixed on Him, Who is the Author and Finisher of my faith and in Whose name I pray,

Amen

The Beatitudes

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you falsely because of me.

Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.
