Day 39 – Vigil Participants from Madonna Del Costello, Word of God, St. Elizabeth of Hungary, and other churches display a strong prayerful presence

” Ascribe the Lord the glory due His name; worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.” Psalms 29:2

The Lord has been glorified each day in this campaign, and today was no exception to that. Read about how in Sally’s testimony below:

 It was a very quiet morning. Weather much better than yesterday.  PP was slow again today.  Not a lot of women going in, at least during this shift.  Our pray-ers came from Word of God parish, Pennsylvanians for Human Life, St. Vincent College, St. Joseph, Assembly of God, and a few other churches:

We thank God for good people like Bill and Brandon who come by often, even daily, to pray and witness for life.  May God bless them for their perseverance.  Sally

The second shift was also successful. Read about it below:

The second shift today went very well. Vigil participants from St. Elizabeth of Hungary, St. Mary Orthodox, St. Paul’s Seminary, and St. Fidelis, Bulter came to pray for the cause of life.

St. Paul Seminarians

Over the course of the four hour second shift, nearly thirty people participated, which is excellent for a Saturday afternoon shift. Particularly inspiring was the encouragement shown to us by a passer by, Kenneth, who recently moved to the area and started his own catering business. Also inspiring was the testimony of a post abortive woman who is now pro-life, told us her story of healing, and prayed with us. Another inspiration came from Susan, a consistent vigil participant in our campaign.



The third shift was just as successful. Read about it in Jeannie’s testimony below:

What a delightful, peaceful  uplifting late shift we had Saturday.   Several wonderful factors:  SUN SUN SUN—  Also 3 brand new vigil participants –Toni, Chris, and Don–  who are destined for return appearances if I have anything to do with it.

Fr. Nick takes time to witness during his parish’s time! Thank you!

Absent green beer, we got through and entire
Saturday shift with many, many positive, affirmative remarks to our prayer and only ONE mumbled opposition !

I think Don’s singing may win him a spot on the next American Idol, too.  In all, I was blessed to be among so many witnesses who are preparing for calvary with our Lord.

I spoke to the wife of the PP guard— PLEASE pray that he find another job.  She is not allowed to tell me her name, but the couple has a 3 year old and 1 year old and a rosary hanging from the car mirror.  The wife is also a security guard– she said she prayed about her husband taking this job.  They decided it was up to God to judge the folks at PP— I assured her that we would talk to God about a new job for her husband!

I am humbled with those who have stepped up to witness during these days.  As Beth Svirbel said   in our last hour—“let’s say the Glorious mysteries because we know who wins this struggle in the end.”

In Life -Jeannie


God Bless,

    With admiration and appreciation for all who have so faithfully kept the vigil on Liberty Avenue and for this wonderful blog that has kept the rest of us encouraged to do our part in our homes, churches and communities. ““There is no limit to the blessings which God can send you – he will make sure that you will always have all you need for yourselves in every possible circumstance, and still have something to spare for all sorts of good works.”
    2 Cor 9:8
