19 open hours this week!

This past Friday we had a skeleton crew to witness for LIFE on the sidewalk – only one person signed up per hour.  Yet, when each person who signed up got there, they were not alone.  A man from Pennsylvania was in Madison for business and had the day free and came out and witnessed for LIFE alongside those signed up for each hour for the whole day.  We are grateful to God for sending him out to work in his vineyard with us! 

 
We have lots of open hours this week!  Please sign up for one!

16 open hours yet this week!

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.”
― St. Maximilian KolbeLet Yourself Be Led by the Immaculate

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.

The last command of Christ was to “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations…” (Matthew 28:19) This can seem daunting until you remember what Jesus followed this command with, “And, behold, I am with you always until the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)

 
Witnessing on the sidewalk for the Gospel of Life is a great start to realizing the last command of Christ.  And – remember Jesus will be there with you!

Prayer to God the Father of all Life

Eternal God, You have revealed Yourself as the Father of all Life. We praise You for the Fatherly care which You extend to all creation, and especially to us, made in Your image and likeness.

Father, extend Your hand of protection to those threatened by abortion, and save them from its destructive power. Give Your strength to all fathers, that they may never give in to the fears that may tempt them to facilitate abortions.

Bless our families and bless our land, that we may have the joy of welcoming and nurturing the life of which You are the source and the Eternal Father.

We ask this through Christ, our Lord!
Amen.

29 open hours this week!

Your prayers and peaceful presence at your local abortion facility are more important now than ever before.

As the abortion industry melts down over Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, abortion industry executives continue to neglect the reality that hearts and minds are changing at the grassroots level. We are now seeing that impact in Washington, D.C.

Kennedy had long been seen as a swing vote on abortion-related cases. The day before announcing his retirement, he provided the deciding vote, striking down a California law that required pro-life pregnancy centers to promote abortion. However, Kennedy sided with the abortion industry on other landmark cases.

President Trump will now have the opportunity to appoint Kennedy’s replacement. Pray that the president succeeds in delivering a pro-life justice who will establish a solid pro-life majority on the Court for generations to come.

A Pro Life Prayer  (By Creative Communications)
 
God of all goodness, you have entrusted us with the gift of life.
Help us to appreciate that gift from the first moments of conception
to the last breaths of old age.  Send your strength to all those who defend 
the unborn, the weak, and the dying against the attempts to cut short their
lives.  May your Holy Spirit touch the hearts of those who are tempted to
choose the way of death rather than life.  Grant that your people may always
be a sign of your love in the world.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

“…for we walk by faith, not by sight.”  (2 Corinthians 5:7)

The battle we are in as we stand for LIFE on the sidewalk is a spiritual one so we must walk by faith.  It is our faith that keeps us coming to the sidewalk.  It is our faith that teaches us that ALL HUMAN LIFE is SACRED and has VALUE BEYOND MEASURE – from conception to natural death.  It is our faith that demands we put our love into action.
Please put your love into action on the sidewalk this week.

Life is Precious
How precious life is, the greatest gift to be given, just for us from our Creator in Heaven.
Oh, what joy and love could be in our hearts, if only we trust in our Father above.
How thankful I am in spite of the trials, for how could I know joy without knowing sorrow.
I’ll live for today, for that’s now what I have, I’ll give thanks for my yesterdays, give him my tomorrow.
Each life has a mission, a journey you see, for if he created you then you are meant to be.
From the moment of conception till the time you go home, many lives you will touch though many unknown.
Scientists, doctor, lawyer, police, homemaker, father, teacher or Priest, no matter how old, no matter how young, we all have a job waiting to be done.
There is no life more special than another, we all belong to our Universal Father.
Yes, life is precious with its ups and downs and then one day he will call us home. I can only hope that when my day comes, I will hear Him say, that’s a job well done.
Thank you God for the gift of my life!
