Mondays are the worst…except during a 40 Days for Life campaign!

That’s because each Monday we’ll update the number of confirmed babies saved from abortion thanks to YOUR prayers.

Less than a week into the vigil, we already know of 26 babies saved!

“Never underestimate the power of body language!” said Susan in Sacramento, California.

The couple entering the abortion facility refused crisis pregnancy support information as they drove into the abortion center parking lot. And once the abortion-bound mom exited her vehicle, she was much too far away to sidewalk counsel.

But the 40 Days for Life prayer warrior in Sacramento didn’t give up.

image

“She put forth the information with one hand, pointed up to the abortion clinic with the other hand and shook her head ‘No,'” Susan reported. “Then she hugged her heart and put her hands together as if to pray.”

It made a difference. The couple left their abortion appointment, stopping briefly to announce some good news: “We changed our minds! We’re going to keep our baby!”

image

St. Paul, Minnesota

It’s only fitting that the first TWO hours of sidewalk counseling in the TWIN Cities resulted in TWO babies saved from abortion!

It was certainly great news for the 100 people who attended the St. Paul kickoff event Wednesday night.

image

Bournemouth, England

The abortion-bound mother was more than a bit anxious as she arrived for her appointment. Listening to music on her headphones to try to drown out her conscience, she headed for the entrance.

That is until a 40 Days for Life participant approached her and asked her to sit down for coffee–an invitation that was accepted.

“She explained her difficult life and agreed that the abortion was not the right option,” reported Fr. Philomeno in Bournemouth. “Later she contacted the helper full of joy in her decision to keep the child.”

Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the well. Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it.

—Ecclesiastes 12:6-7

O God, we too often try to live in ways that ignore our coming death. We forget that our days are numbered by You, that at the end of our days your judgment awaits, that You are the Lord of our destiny. Help us to repent daily, and then to live each day in joyful obedience. Lead us to live in the light and promise of eternity. Prepare us to live fully and sacrificially.

The First Joyful Mystery

33 Day Consecration – Day 27

Dear Family of Mary!

33 Day Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary – Day 27

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Receive our Consecration Prayer, O dearest Mother Mary!

We will continue to listen to Our Lady’s September 25, 2019 Message, since she is speaking right to us about our consecration to her Rosary!

“…Little children, pray the Rosary and meditate the mysteries of the Rosary because, in your life, you are also passing through joys and sorrows. In this way, you are transforming the mysteries into your life, because life is a mystery until you place it into God’s hands…” (September 25, 2019)


“Meditate the mysteries of the Rosary!”   
Fr. Shamon understands how to meditate the mysteries. He is so down to earth and practical. But he is right. Here is what he says:

One of the greatest objections to the Rosary is precisely because it is a thinking prayer. Some will say, “I don’t like to think.” Or “I can’t concentrate on the mysteries. My mind wanders. That’s why I quit saying the Rosary.”

I think the trouble here is that too often we try to intellectualize the mysteries. We peer into them to extract lessons from them. Rather, we should just look at the mysteries of the Rosary in the Ignatian sense of contemplation. St. Ignatius said to just look at the scenes of Our Lord’s life without trying to pull out all kinds of lessons and applications to your life. Just be there, like watching the TV series “You Were There!” The lessons and applications will come spontaneously.

Haven’t you gone to a movie and had a friend ask how you liked it? As you gave your answer, you were unconsciously analyzing the picture. Without even being aware of it, you were drawing conclusions about the picture just by looking at the movie.

So in the Rosary. Just look at the scenes of Our Lord’s life with Our Lady for the length of 10 Hail Marys. Like a movie, they will begin to say something to you without your having to do anything but look. While you are looking at the scenes, God is working in your heart. (Fr. Albert Shamon. “The Power of the Rosary”. P. 13)

Fr. Shamon makes a good point. Our Lady doesn’t want us to only intellectualize the mysteries. As she just told us in the September 25, 2019 message – we need to meditate on the mysteries so as to transform them into our lives. We do this by drawing comparisons and seeing the connections between the lives of Jesus and Mary, and our lives. We are all people! We can understand each other, and connect on the deepest of levels, our humanity! The Holy Spirit will help us by drawing our attention to the aspects that are important for us!

I think Our Lady wants us to learn something here about how to pray and let the Holy Spirit work in our prayer. More tomorrow! 

Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:

“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Now we pray our Rosary for today! Joyful Mysteries!! 


In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

The city where 40 Days for Life began–Bryan/College Station, Texas–before going to 855 cities in 61 countries was labeled “the most anti-choice place in the country.”

It’s been six years since that Planned Parenthood facility became the 37th out of 104 abortion facilities to close following a 40 Days for Life campaign. A lot has happened in those six years!

That facility became the headquarters of 40 Days for Life and was recently depicted in the blockbuster film Unplanned.

Today, Bryan/College Station is the largest college town in America that does NOT have an abortion provider…and the community wants to keep it that way!

image

It’s the city’s first campaign since Planned Parenthood left and it’s off to a good start with a keynote address from 40 Days for Life Director of Medical Affairs & Education Dr. Haywood Robinson.

“We’re praying for an end to abortion,” Patricia, the local leader, told the Bryan-College Station Eagle. “We’re praying for our community’s leaders, we’re praying for women and men who have been through abortions and need healing — we’re just praying.”

image
image

Schenectady, New York

The 40 Days for Life team in Schenectady has been holding campaigns for a decade. But some participants have been going out since long before 40 Days for Life began.

A man got out of his car and thanked us for standing up for life because his mother had wanted to abort him before the pro-life message converted her,” said Mike from Schenectady. “I wonder if it could have been some of our pro-life people decades ago?”

image

Portland, Maine

The first-ever campaign in Portland began with a day 1 visit from 40 Days for Life Board Chair and General Counsel Matt Britton. More than a hundred people came out for the launch event.

Not everybody who dropped by was pro-life though. A group of hecklers brought signs that read, “I love abortion.”

So much for pretending that abortion is a difficult situation that nobody takes lightly!

image

The King will answer and say to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.”

—Matthew 25:31-46

Gracious and merciful Father, we renew our dedication to defending the unborn and all whose right to life is compromised by our godless society’s selfish lack of concern. Free us from our own failures and sins so that we will be truly pro-life in every area of our lives.

Praying for Our Lady’s Intentions on Podbrdo

33 Day Consecration – Day 26  
Dear Family of Mary!

33 Day Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary – Day 26


In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Receive our Consecration Prayer, O dearest Mother Mary!

For our last few days of this Consecration let’s use Our Lady’s messages, especially September 25, 2019) as our instruction on the power and purpose of the Rosary.

“Dear children! Today I am calling you to pray for my intentions so that I may help you…” (September 25, 2019)

Our Lady has asked us to pray for her intentions several times. Here are some of those messages:

September 25, 1991 “Dear children! Today in a special way I invite you all to prayer and renunciation. For now as never before satan wants to show the world his shameful face by which he wants to seduce as many people as possible onto the way of death and sin. Therefore, dear children, help my Immaculate Heart to triumph in the sinful world. I beseech all of you to offer prayers and sacrifices for my intentions so I can present them to God for what is most necessary. Forget your desires, dear children, and pray for what God desires, and not for what you desire. Thank you for having responded to my call.” 

 

October 25, 2008 “Dear children! In a special way I call you all to pray for my intentions so that, through your prayers, you may stop satan’s plan over this world, which is further from God every day, and which puts itself in the place of God and is destroying everything that is beautiful and good in the souls of each of you. Therefore, little children, arm yourselves with prayer and fasting so that you may be conscious of how much God loves you and may carry out God’s will. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

October 25, 2012 “Dear children! Today I call you to pray for my intentions. Renew fasting and prayer because Satan is cunning and attracts many hearts to sin and perdition. I call you, little children, to holiness and to live in grace. Adore my Son so that He may fill you with His peace and love for which you yearn. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

August 25, 2014 “Dear children! Pray for my intentions, because Satan wants to destroy my plan which I have here and to steal your peace. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray that God can act through each of you. May your hearts be open to God’s will. I love you and bless you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

November 25, 2015 “Dear children! Today I am calling all of you: pray for my intentions. Peace is in danger, therefore, little children, pray and be carriers of peace and hope in this restless world where Satan is attacking and tempting in every way. Little children, be firm in prayer and courageous in faith. I am with you and intercede before my Son Jesus for all of you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Our Lady needs our prayer support. Her intentions, though hidden from us, are central to the plan God has given her to crush the head of Satan. (Notice how every time Our Lady mentions her intentions, she mentions Satan as well. Her intentions involve his demise.) She needs our prayer support! And it seems that as we do pray for her intentions, we are in fact praying for ourselves. We are praying for holiness, peace, hope, courage, faith, love, beauty, goodness, freedom from sin, and wholesomeness. We are praying to become God’s holy children so that we can build His Kingdom. Somehow, our holiness is vital to the plan God has given Our Lady. Our holiness defeats the enemy.
 
The Rosary helps us with this plan in so many ways. Praying the Rosary builds the Kingdom within us, making us part of the solution, not part of the problem.  Let us pray to become part of that plan, that solution, which is the renewal of hearts!

Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:

“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Now we pray our Rosary for today! Glorious Mysteries!!

I just returned from Georgia, where I learned of an 11-year-old girl saved from abortion during the first nationally coordinated campaign back in 2007!

In fact, that 11-year-old girl has since held ANOTHER baby saved by a 40 Days for Life campaign in Georgia!

It’s a reminder of what God makes possible when we show up.

That’s a big deal at a time when the State of Georgia is under attack.

Out-of-state politicians, out-of-touch corporations, and C-list actresses have all set their sites on the Peach State for enacting a law that protects unborn children once a heartbeat is detected.

But the momentum I saw at the Marietta campaign shows just how out of touch these elitists are.

More than 250 pro-lifers packed the room–including pastors, pregnancy center staff, representatives from Georgia Right to Life, and…Abby Johnson’s mom (sort of).

Suzanne and her daughter Rachel (below on the left) lead the Marietta campaign and are as good as it gets–true pro-life heroes. We also heard from two post abortive women who shared their powerful testimonies.

A couple that looked abortion-minded left about five minutes after entering Planned Parenthood,” he said.

Sometimes a sign says it all: “No job, no home, no hope; pressured to abort, I chose life.”

Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

— Luke 1:30-33

Heavenly Father, you have made the womb of each woman a very special place. Help us to hold fast to the sanctity of this first home of humanity, remembering the wonderful mystery, that God inhabited the womb of a young woman and came forth as the savior and deliverer of the world.

33 Day Consecration – Day 25 
Dear Family of Mary!

33 Day Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary – Day 25

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Receive our Consecration Prayer, O dearest Mother Mary!

Today we continue with Fr. Shaman’s discussion of why the Rosary promotes good thinking:

The Rosary is good thinking. It drives home four great truths of religion. (today reason #4)

4. All 15 Mysteries of the Rosary teach the fourth great truth of religion; namely, sanctity is for all and it is within the reach of all of us. [At the time this book was published St. John Paul II had not introduced the Luminous Mysteries]

All 15 mysteries teach that great sanctity can be achieved by ordinary people doing ordinary things, every day, out of love for God, just as Mary and Joseph did.

In the eyes of the world, Joseph and Mary were just ordinary people. When Jesus awed his fellow townsmen by his eloquence, they asked, “Isn’t this the son of Joseph?” – an ordinary carpenter! (Lk. 4:22) When Jesus claimed to be bread from Heaven, they again protested on the grounds that He came from Ordinary fold. “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph? Do we not know his father and mother/” (Jn 6:42) – just ordinary people! God doesn’t ask us to be anything other than ordinary people – but good people whose one focus is Christ.

The Rosary gets us thinking about such truths – and thinking leads to action. Our Lady knows that you cannot be thinking day in and day out on the mysteries of Our Lord’s life and not be changed, for the thoughts that enfold you are the thoughts the mold you. Our Lady knows that. Hence her ardent requests for our saying the Rosary.

Our Lady does not ask for Revolution (which is only a change of structures); for changing structures changes nothing. Overthrowing the monarchy of France did not better the nation. Overthrowing the Romanov dynasty and the Kerensky government for Communism did not help Russia. Toppling the regime of Batista for Castro did not save Cuba. That Our Lady seeks – and the Church and the Gospel- is Renewal, which is a change of hearts. That is why she asks for the Rosary, for the Rosary renews hearts, changes people; and when people change, society will change.
(Rev. Albert J. M. Shamon. The Power of the Rosary. 1990 p. 11- 12)

Well, we can see that Our Lady is indeed using the Rosary in Medjugorje to do exactly this: to bring about a renewal of hearts, one person at a time, until there is a change in the world. Her message given on September 25, confirms what Fr. Shamon has said about the power of the mysteries of the Rosary:

“Dear children! Today I am calling you to pray for my intentions so that I may help you.

Little children, pray the Rosary and meditate the mysteries of the Rosary because, in your life, you are also passing through joys and sorrows. In this way, you are transforming the mysteries into your life, because life is a mystery until you place it into God’s hands.

In this way, you will have the experience of faith like Peter who met Jesus and the Holy Spirit filled his heart. Little children, you are also called to witness by living the love with which, day by day, God wraps you with my presence.

Therefore, little children, be open and pray with the heart in faith. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (September 25, 2019)

Wow! I can’t believe she said these beautiful things to us about the Rosary, during our 33 Day Consecration to her as Our Lady of the Rosary! Doesn’t it give you goose bumps!!! She is truly with us, praying with us, thinking with us, and teaching us so clearly! Thank you, dearest Mother, for being our Mother!!

Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:

“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Now we pray our Rosary for today! Joyful Mysteries!!

Just a few years ago, Adam in Southampton, England was a pro-abortion atheist.

He assisted with dozens of abortions when he worked in a hospital and even played a role in the abortion of his own child.

But the month after Adam was baptized as a Christian, he had a terrifying nightmare about his role in that abortion.

Adam is now leading the first 40 Days for Life campaign outside Southampton Hospital, where hundreds of children are lost to abortion each year.

That means he’s the second person ever (after 40 Days for Life Outreach Director Sue Thayer) to lead a 40 Days for Life campaign after working in an abortion unit!

image

Southampton is about three hours south of the Nottingham abortion facility that became the 100th to close following a 40 Days for Life campaign.

Adam hopes to see Southampton’s abortion ward added to the list of out-of-business abortion facilities shortly!

image

40 Days for Life kickoff events continue all week in cities around the world.

image

Redding, California

The 40 Days for Life launch event in Redding featured a keynote talk from Daryl Lefever, one of the producers of Unplanned.

“He spoke about God’s Hand in the timing of the release,” said Paul, the local leader in Redding. “The producers couldn’t have known how abortion would be so prominently discussed nationally after New York and Illinois passed extreme late-term abortion bills.”

At a critical time, the film’s release led to a 30 percent increase in vigil participants. May the momentum continue throughout the fall campaign!

image

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Bishop David Zubik helped launch the Pittsburgh 40 Days for Life campaign with a Eucharistic procession through the downtown neighborhood where Planned Parenthood is located.

Escorted by the Pittsburgh Police Department, hundreds of pro-lifers processed through the streets to the abortion facility, breaking out into song along the way.

“This was the most amazing way to kick off our 40 Days for Life EVER!!!” wrote the Pittsburgh team.

image

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

—Matthew 6:25-26

Loving heavenly Father, help us to see the worth of all human beings by the way in which you provide for us. We would ask that you provide also the faith, grace and courage to enable us to protect that which is so precious to you.

33 Day Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary – Day 24

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Receive our Consecration Prayer, O dearest Mother Mary!

Today we continue with Fr. Shaman’s discussion of why the Rosary promotes good thinking:

The Rosary is good thinking. It drives home four great truths of religion. (today reason #3)

3. The Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary teach the third great truth of religion; namely, life has a purpose, a goal beyond this life.

For the Christian, life is not cyclic: we are not going around in circles, like pagans. That is why the hallmark of the pagan is ennui, boredom, suicide. Purposeless activity can be maddening. If you had to throw a bowling ball down an alley with no pins, for just one evening, it would bore you to death. Put pins up, put purpose into the throwing and it becomes an enjoyable game.

For the Christian, life is linear; we are going somewhere – to Heaven or to Hell. The Glorious Mysteries emphasize that our destiny is Heaven; a glorious life beyond this life.
(Rev. Albert J. M. Shamon. The Power of the Rosary. 1990 p. 4, 10)

Yes, the Glorious Mysteries give us a look into the future. They assure us that we are meant to live forever with God in Heaven. We are meant, and so we have meaning! This is very good news and helps us to think rightly! God wants us to keep Heaven in our view finder all the time!

As Our Lady has said:

May 25, 2017  “Dear children! The Most High has permitted me to call you anew to conversion. Little children, open your hearts to the grace to which you are all called. Be witnesses of peace and love in this peaceless world. Your life here on earth is passing. Pray that through prayer you may yearn for Heaven and the things of Heaven and your hearts will see everything differently. You are not alone; I am with you and intercede before my Son Jesus for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Dearest Mother, thank you for the gift of the Rosary! Thank you turning our eyes towards our eternal future, a life with God in Heaven. Don’t let us ever forget this glorious future or endanger it in any way through sin. Mother, be our advocate and guide as we journey towards eternity, a life with God forever!

Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:

“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Now we pray our Rosary for today! Sorrowful Mysteries!! 


In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
