Abortion Debate: We Need To Talk

Great article by Ezra Levant:
In Abbotsford, BC, a property owner has set up a symbolic cemetery on his own land, with 1,862 miniature crosses on it, to symbolize the number of abortions each week in Canada. It's like those small memorials along highways where people have died in car accidents.

Is it shocking? Maybe. But if it bothers you to think about what those crosses symbolize, that's the point. And that's why a pro-abortion extremist group wants the government to shut it down.
Today is the first day of the Lenten 40 Days for Life vigil and it starts with the news of another abortion center closing:
Just recently, I told you about Lima, Ohio … where the abortion center, where faithful volunteers had intended to peacefully pray for 40 days, had CLOSED and gone out of business.

Well, we just confirmed that it happened AGAIN!!!

This time, prayer volunteers in Greensboro, North Carolina were getting ready for their second peaceful vigil outside the Woman’s Choice abortion facility. But now, those plans have changed.

This abortion center has also SHUT ITS DOORS and is not relocating!

“All glory to God!” said one of those volunteers. “All the furniture is gone,” she said. “They left like a thief in the night.”
Let's keep praying and there will be more of them to come.

Pope Benedict XVI Announces Resignation

Looking back at these 8 years, I can only say one thing: We used to take Pope Benedict for granted far too often...

Rosary Novena For The Lenten 40 Days For Life Vigil

This coming 40 Days for Life vigil, let's try the 54 Day Miracle Rosary Novena to Our Lady.
Our church history reveals to us that on March 3, 1884, Our Lady of Pompeii appeared before the gravely ill daughter of an Italian military officer. Through her, Our Lady gave the world the miraculous devotion of the 54 days Rosary Novena.
"The devotion in this novena combines three things which are dear to God in a very remarkable scheme; frequent communion, the practice of the virtues, and devotion to Mary in the Rosary. One who will carry it out faithfully will have besieged Heaven in a way that will make him heard...Rev. R. P. Lawrence.
I suggested this Novena for the 40 Days for Life in Moncton, back in 2011 and the people welcomed the idea. Now, why not expand it further, to other vigil sites? Why not add the 54 Day Miracle Rosary Novena to our prayers to end abortion?

BTW - since the Novena lasts 54 days (27 days for the petition and 27 days of thanksgiving) and the 40 Days for Life vigil is 2 weeks shorter, it's better to start the Novena a week earlier. Then the transition from the petition part to the thanksgiving will take place exactly at mid-point of the 40 Days for Life vigil, and the last day of the Novena will coincide with Easter Sunday.
