Day 3: Thanks to our incredible Volunteers, Shift Managers, and Shift Buddies!

This, rather, is the fasting that I wish:     releasing those bound unjustly, untying the thongs of the yoke; Setting free the oppressed, breaking every yoke… Isaiah 58:6 Dear friends, when you pray in front of Planned Parenthood, you help to set free those oppressed by the lie that abortion is the only answer to an unexpected …

Day 2: Thank you to Lincoln Place Church of the Nazarene, Divine Mercy Parish, the Ancient Order of Hibernians, and all of our other prayer volunteers!!

Blessed are they who hope in the Lord. Psalm 40:5a If I were walking in the tunnel in this above image, I would be legitimately scared- especially if I were walking alone. Besides knowing that the Lord was with me, the only other thing that would offer any kind of HOPE would be the light …

The Eleventh Hour…

I’ve always heard this saying…”at the eleventh hour”, but I’ve never given it much thought. I always just assumed it means that something is happening at the last minute…just before the time is up. But today’s Gospel reading got me thinking that this phrase had another origin, a more meaningful one. In this parable, Jesus …

How we must suffer…

Pro life activism has never been easy. We have always had to go against the prevailing culture, and we have always faced a certain amount of hostility and mild persecution while on the sidewalk. In fact, I have always taken a sort of comfort in this fact. After all, if our presence pricks the consciences …

Persevering in Prayer!

Approximately 20 faithful Christians from all over Pittsburgh have been gathering together every Sunday morning at 9:30 am, in front of Divine Mercy Parish/St. Mary’s downtown for a mile-and-a-half-long prayer walk around our city. This morning we were pleasantly surprised to be joined by Pittsburgh’s auxiliary bishop, Bishop William Waltersheid! Bishop Waltersheid has decided to …

On the day following the presidential election, I wrote a post (linked here) about my reaction to the disappointment of having come SO close to overturning Roe…only …
