The thing that I most like about 40 Days for Life is it’s total dependence on God and the fact that we are not trying to rely on our own strength or abilities to end abortion. We are simply putting ourselves out there on the sidewalk…gently….vulnerably…weakly. We are saying to God, “Use me!”
That is when God’s beauty shines, in the most delicate and fragile of his creatures…like this butterfly. Isn’t it strange that the butterfly is the ONLY insect that is not creepy? I admit that I am afraid of pretty much all bugs…but if I see a butterfly, I am in awe. They are so graceful and beautiful! That is the kind of grace and beauty that God can create with us when we humble ourselves and show up on the sidewalk to pray.
We need YOU to show up! Especially during the first 20 days! The vigil coverage is looking better from day 20 through day 40…but it looks pretty thin during the first half of the campaign! Can you help? If so, please email Fran at firstname.lastname@example.org to get signed up! See the schedule HERE!
Please join us in praying a novena for the 40 priests and two bishops who will celebrate Mass and process to Planned Parenthood on Tuesday, Feb 25.
