On Saturday, January 19, 2013, we participated in the subsequent diocesan Crusade for Unborn Life. It was already our third visit in the last few months of our pilgrimage of faith to this particular abortion clinic, which we successfully pushed out of Astoria, Queens. As I previously informed, we are following in their footsteps, and even caused them to cancel the planned grand opening of their new facility in Jamaica. Unfortunately, during our next series of visits there, the entire personnel of this factory of death appeared, all in white lab coats, numbering 30-40 people, with banners against life!

Chris Moretz decided to ride out Hurricane Katrina alone at home. After the worst of the storm had passed, his house was flooded and destroyed. Chris needed to let his family know that he was still alive. But they were in Tucson, Arizona, and there was no way for him to contact them. So Chris painted the message on the roof of his home: “C. MORETZ IS ALIVE. PASS IT ON.” Also included was the phone number of Chris’s brother, Gerard. Gerard said, “Going 36 hours not knowing if he was OK puts things in perspective. But then Chris’ rooftop message was shown on TV and posted on some web sites. Chris’ family began getting phone calls from all over the country telling them Chris was alive.

Today we prayerfully unite with those our parishioners who went to Washington, D.C. to participate in the Annual March For Life.
“A great prayer for life is urgently needed, a prayer which will rise up throughout the world. Through special initiatives and in daily prayer, may an impassioned plea rise to God, the Creator and lover of life, from every Christian community, from every group and association, from every family and from the heart of every believer.” – Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, no. 100

At the end of his Angelus Message on November 14, Pope Benedict XVI reminded the assembly that next Saturday (November 27) at St. Peter’s Basilica he will preside over the “first Vespers for the First Sunday of Advent and at a prayer vigil for nascent human life.” While noting that the prayer vigil for all nascent human life is an initiative that encompasses all the particular churches (dioceses) of the world, Pope Benedict especially recommended that parishes, religious communities, and ecclesial associations and movements also take part. He added that “the period of preparation for Christmas is a fitting occasion to invoke God’s protection on all human beings who have been called into existence, as well as to give thanks to God for the gift that each child is to his parents.” Continue reading Prayer for nascent human life
