A Franciscan Blessing
 
May God bless us with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships;
So that we will live deeper in our hearts.
May God bless us with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people and the earth;
So that we will work for justice, equity and peace.
May God bless us with tears to shed for those who suffer;
So we will reach out our hands to comfort them and change their pain into joy.
And may God bless us with foolishness to think that we can make a difference in the world;
So we will do the things which others say cannot be done.
 
Amen.

This from Shawn Carney of 40 Days for Life: “We have many reports that just the sight of people peacefully, quietly praying outside the abortion center was all it took to make women stop, turn around and leave without having an abortion.

Won’t you be that person praying on the sidewalk this week?

Father, you are the God of hope. Your word fills us with the vision of the world to come, when every tear will be wiped away, and death will be no more.

Father, how we need that hope, how we are strengthened by that vision! Keep our hearts focused on heaven, and diligent in the labors of earth.

As we struggle against the culture of death, root our souls in the assurance of victory. We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.

O God, may we always be quick to call you Father. And when we call you fa- ther, let your Spirit remind us that we, and all people, from their beginning to their last day, are your children. We praise you, Father, that you sent your Son to reveal to the world that all peo- ple are His brothers and sisters, that all people are your children. Through Je- sus Christ we pray. Amen.

O God, our heavenly Father, give us courage and wisdom as we seek to eradicate the evil in our society.

Help us to realize that your divine Spirit alone can change hearts and minds so that all your human creatures may enjoy the fullness of life you intended for them.

I pray this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.

18 open hours this week!

Although we are not officially taking part in the Spring 40 Days for Life campaign, our daily presence ensures that our prayers and presence are joined with thousands of others throughout the world to end abortion.  Even when we do not necessarily see how God is using our prayers and presence right in front of us, stories like the following give us the motivation to continue!  Our prayers help support all 40 Days for Life campaigns!

This from St. Louis’ 40 Days for Life spring campaign:
 “Through even the worst storms,” said Brian, the 40 Days for Life leader in St. Louis, “we see our Lord working through prayer volunteers and sidewalk counselors.”

Two volunteers prayed in a driving rain until a young family stopped to talk.

“When the conversation ended,” said one of the vigil participants, “they were smiling. They drove away from Planned Parenthood toward a life-affirming option.”

As their car turned the corner, the other volunteer cheered, “This is what we’re here for!” 

“No matter how miserable the weather is, or how hard the wind blows,” said one of the St. Louis team members, “we are called to persevere in faith that God can work through us, rain or shine, to protect the unborn. “

There have been 196 babies and their mothers (that are known) spared from abortion during this Spring 40 Days for Life campaign!

O, God, you formed us in our mother’s womb and planned a unique and special life and purpose for each of us, and we do thank you. Grant that we may pray and work for an end to abortion, especially in these 40 days, so that no unborn baby you have made may fail to achieve your divine intention for him or her because of intentional abortion. We pray this for the sake of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Heavenly Father, we thank you for caring about each of us so deeply. Help us to see and know you as our Father in heaven each and every day of our lives.

Your loving hand also rests on every child today carried in its mother’s womb. May they be born into this world and come to know fully and personally your endless love. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.  (Prayer by: Randolph Sly)

2 more results from taking the pro-life message to the  street (for us the sidewalk) – according to Priests for Life:

5. Street (or sidewalk) activity is valuable not only for what it does to the public, but what it does for the pro-lifers themselves. When someone expresses his convictions publicly, those convictions are strengthened inwardly. When someone brings the truth to the public streets or stands in prayer where killing is actually taking place, that person receives a deeper sense of the urgency of the battle and the reality of the problem. Street activities also help to recruit pro-life activists (see more on this below).

6. A key aspect of the message we publicly proclaim is that the mothers of aborted babies are also harmed and sometimes killed by the same procedure that kills their children. The abortion industry is responsible for untold numbers of malpractice incidents, resulting in maternal injuries and deaths. A poster is now available which contains some of the names of mothers who obtained so-called “safe and legal” abortions but died as a result. It is a very powerful practice to bring this poster to a prayer vigil or picket in front of an abortion mill (or elsewhere) and have a leader read each of the names of these deceased. After each name, the assembled group can respond, “Lord, have mercy on her.” (The poster is available from Life Dynamics. Call 1-800-401-6494).

7. Pro-life presence in the streets (or on the sidewalks) is more essential than ever. Defenders of abortion are not only saying no to life; they are seeking to silence our yes. For example, the official guidelines of BACAOR (an anti-life group in San Francisco) say that they seek to get pro-lifers not only to go away from the door of the abortion mill, but to go away altogether. Efforts such as RICO suits and the FACE Law unfairly discriminate against pro-life free speech, and the enemy uses them to instill in us a fear of speaking out. They want us to go away. Our response can and must be, “We will not go away!” Now is the time to increase and intensify our activities on the streets, not to back away from them! The best way to defend our First Amendment rights is to exercise them without fear! This is the moment to show our opponents that we will not be intimidated from speaking up for what is right.

O God, we too often try to live in ways that ignore our coming death.

We forget that our days are numbered by You,

that at the end of our days your judgement awaits, that You are the Lord of our destiny.

Help us to repent daily, and then to live each day in joyful obedience.

Lead us to live in the light and promise of eternity.

Prepare us to live fully and sacrificially.

Prepare us to die faithfully and hopefully, so that we might live forever with You.

Through Jesus Christ, who has gone before us, we trust and hope and love and pray. Amen.

2 more results from taking the pro-life message to the  street (for us the sidewalk) – according to Priests for Life:

3. By going into the streets (or, in our case, the sidewalk), we always win. Whether people agree with us or not, whether they are persuaded by our presence or not, we have forced them to confront the reality of abortion. We have brought abortion to their attention whether they like it or not. That means we win. If people never confront abortion, it will never be stopped. If people are not forced to re-think it, then they will remain in ignorance (“I don’t know”) and denial (“I don’t want to know”), and abortion will continue unchallenged. If, however, the public continues to see protest and unrest and many people against abortion, they will have to say, “Why this protesting? What is it that is so wrong? Why do so may people continue to be so disturbed?” If they see the sacrifice we make by enduring heat and cold, rain and snow, loneliness and ridicule over many hours, they will have to ask whether abortion might be worse than they think it is. They may be roused from their slumber.

4. We need to go out on the streets (or sidewalks) because abortion is a local phenomenon. Efforts to petition the government must continue, but abortions do not occur in the halls of Congress; they occur down the street from where we live and work and relax. The killing is taking place in the local community, and the local community must take responsibility to stop the killing. Local residents must register their disapproval, and this is done quite vividly in the streets (or on the sidewalks). We pro-lifers should not so much lose peace over who is sitting in the White House; we should lose peace over the fact that we are sitting in our houses!

A PRAYER FOR LENT
O gracious, Master, infuse in our hearts the spotless light of your Divine Wisdom and open the eyes of our mind
that we may understand the teachings of your Gospel.  Instill in us also the fear of your Blessed Commandments,
so that having curbed all carnal desires, we may lead a spiritual life, both thinking and doing everything to please you.
For you, O Christ, our God, are the enlightenment of our souls and bodies; and to you we render glory, together
with your eternal Father, and with your all holy, life-creating Spirit, now and ever and forever. Amen.

2 results from taking the pro-life message to the  street (for us the sidewalk) – according to Priests for Life:

1. The street enables us to take our message directly to the public, bypassing the government, the media, educational facilities, and all those in the institutions who seek to silence the pro-life message. People driving or walking are not there because they want to hear us, but because they are going about their daily duties. The entire cross-section of the public is reached. We meet people where they are, and make it impossible for them to ignore us. This counteracts the efforts of those who would privatize the Gospel, and confine the pro-life and Christian message merely to our homes and Churches. The message of life is true not only in our homes and Churches, but everywhere, including streets and public places.

2. There is a double tragedy to abortion. The first tragedy is that it occurs. The second tragedy is that while it occurs, life for so many goes on “business as usual.” Abortion becomes part of the landscape; it recedes into the scenery and is considered a normal part of the orderly functioning of society. Things are at peace, the streets are quiet, and from the looks of things, “Everything’s OK.”

But everything is not OK if babies are being killed. The apparent peace and order of society are superficial and illusory. That peace and order are being destroyed behind closed doors by abortion. A false peace and order covers over this injustice.

By coming out onto the streets, we declare that everything’s not OK, that life cannot go on “business as usual” while 4000 babies are killed daily. Those who support the killing tell us, “Leave us alone in peace!” To do so, however, is to support a false peace. “‘Peace, peace!’ they say, though there is no peace” (Jer. 6:14). This is the kind of false peace our Lord condemned when He said, “Do not think I have come to establish peace on earth. I assure you, the opposite is true. I have come for division” (Luke 12:51). Our presence on the streets shows that we are not at peace with abortion. It calls for a division of good people from this evil. It refuses to yield to an unjust tranquility.

Heavenly Father, the beauty and dignity of human life was the crowning of your creation. You further ennobled that life when your Son became one with us in his incarnation. Help us to realize the sacredness of human life and to respect it from the moment of conception until the last moment at natural death. Give us courage to speak with truth and love and with conviction in defence of life. Help us to extend the gentle hand of mercy and forgiveness to those who do not reverence your gift of life. To all, grant pardon for the times we have failed to be grateful for your precious gift of life or to respect it in others. We ask this in Jesus’ Name.
Amen.
