You are all invited to join us for a FULL rosary on behalf of the unborn. We will be asking for our Mother’s intercession on behalf of the unborn, specifically for the closing of the Planned Parenthood located at 933 Liberty Avenue. Each Sunday, throughout the month of May, we will be reciting all 20 mysteries. We will be kicking off this devotion on Sunday, May 6th at St. Alexis’ Church, following the 11 AM Mass & Baptism. We anticipate commencing at 1 PM. The 3 remaining Sundays, we will actually pray in front of Planned Parenthood, bright and early, beginning at 7 AM.
We must keep in mind that Mary is the Queen Mother and was bestowed this title virtually at the time of her acceptance of being the Mother of Jesus. A common misconception today is that the Queen is the woman married to the King. For the Jews however, the mother of the King was in the role of the Queen. A prime example is in the Book of Kings, with Bathsheba as the mother of King Solomon. Bathsheba was the wife of King David, but only became queen when David passed on and Solomon became King.
Fast forward to the Book of Revelation, in chapter 12, “A great sign appeared in the sky. It was a woman clothed with the sun, with moon under feet, AND ON HER HEAD, A CROWN OF TWELVE STARS. SHE WAS WITH CHILD AND WAILED ALLOWED IN PAIN AS SHE LABORED TO GIVE BIRTH.” As you can see, she was already wearing the crown, while she was with child. According to Scripture, she was already Queen mother, before she actually gave birth.
What way to better honor our Mother, than to seek her intercession on behalf of the unborn. What better time to ask for her intercession than during the month of Mary.
I hope you are able to make it to at least 1 Sunday if not more. Incidentally, this prayer vigil will be held on one other special Sunday in June since mothers are not the only ones who are impacted by abortion, we will be there to pray on Father’s day, June 17th as well, again at Planned Parenthood, 933 Liberty Avenue in Pittsburgh at 7 AM.
