Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for battle, my fingers for war. Psalm 144:1
Abortion fortifies its ferocious baby killing and baby body selling franchise with lies artfully designed to frighten parents and confuse ordinary people about abortion. Abortion is the scheduled, violent, deliberate killing of an unborn baby. It reaches into the womb of a pregnant woman and dismembers the baby, tearing off its limbs and crushing its head. Another technique guides a long sharp needle through the mother’s abdomen and into the baby’s face or chest, delivering a poison that kills the unborn baby. Sonograms show that the killed baby had tried unsuccessfully to get away. We witness for these sacrificed silenced babies.

NOTES FROM THE SIDEWALK
PAT M. and VINCE P. 7-9
We started with about six and ended with a dozen on a cold, clear, but otherwise beautiful morning. Two parishes were represented this morning. I was there with my parish, St. Regis in Trafford (Greensburg diocese), and my Shift Buddy Vince brought members from his parish, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in the North Hills. Several Knights of Columbus were there from both parishes.
As usual, Vince led us through a Scriptural Rosary tour of all four sets of Mysteries, and we concluded with the Divine Mercy chaplet. I was also able to have two good conversations with two individuals who stopped by. A special thanks to Linda B. of my parish who came out for the very first time, and to three members of my parish who brought the beautiful pro-life sign made long ago by their late mother and grandmother.
Shift Manager Pat M. and his parish, Saint Regis, and his Knights of Columbus Council kept vigil!
Shift Buddy Vince P. with his fellow parishioners and Knights Rich D. and George S. faithfully cover Sunday mornings!

A quiet, peaceful morning on the sidewalk with very little interaction with those passing by. Considering the current plight of the world, it seems a contradiction to use the words peaceful and quiet outside of the killing center.
Isaias 14:7 The whole earth is quiet and still, it is glad and hath rejoiced. This verse is from the prophet Isiah speaking about the restoration of Israel after the Babylonian exile.
We pray, Almighty God, for the peace and quiet that only comes from worshipping you as we should and living out your Holy will. Grant us, through Your Mercy and grace, a world at peace and a spirit of quiet stillness with an end to the destruction of the lives of the innocent.
George and Pat and Rich light up the sidewalk with prayer!

ROSEANN and RICH K. 11-1
There was not much activity on the street today. However, a young woman happened to come by and seemed to be videoing us. She didn’t want to talk but only wanted to mock us. It didn’t last long, thankfully. So, we continued to do what we came to do, pray and witness.
Anthony and Rich, Shift Manager witness for life!

So, so, so very grateful to be the waterboy for these authentic Christian warriors.

THANK YOU, JESUS!!!
Blood of Christ, the only-begotten Son of the eternal Father, save us.
