What a day and what a sight to behold at the clinic today.. The time may be winding down but I can see the prayer warriors powering up. Today I was lucky enough to participate in two parishes Adopt a day. The first St Thecla was lead by Fr. Mark and organized by Kathleen. There were many beautiful children who sang songs (St. Francis Prayer, Be not afraid) and did other beautiful prayers.
The other group from St Lawrence was organized by Sue and Sharon. I was able to pray a rosary with them and checked out the beautiful signs that they had made. What a nice group they really know how to have real joy on a Sunday afternoon.
During the changeover there were over 30 people in front of the clinic. I had to leave so I'm sorry if I missed any people. When I came back at 3:00 there were another 9 people storming heaven with their humble prayers. Diane suggest a litany on humility. What a great prayer . It was like an antidote for all the selfishness, greed and narcissism that is strangling this world. (Mike)
6:00 p.m. Prayer Vigil
Denise was finishing her 5pm prayer hour as I arrived at WomanCare abortion mill. After blessing ourselves with holy water, we said the Prayer for the Helpless Unborn, then good bye hugs. George joined me...yay!!! We took turns reading the rest of the opening prayers. Then for all involved in abortion in any way, we took turns leading the Holy Rosary, reading a brief Sorrowful Mystery before each Hail Mary. I pointed to the bird on the very top of the telephone pole & told George, "that is one of our PW birds" & sure enough, we could hear the chirps throughout the hour. For the conversion of abortionists & closing of abortion mills, we took turns leading the Chaplet of Divine Mercy reading Saint Faustina's meditations on The Passion before each decade. Together we said the Prayer for the Conversion of Abortionists & their Staffs then said the Pledge of Allegiance. Lots of happy honks, thumbs up & nods of approval from folks driving by. One drive-by screamer but I have no clue what was screamed at us~did not sound positive though. (Jenny)
