Prayer Changes Things                                                                 December 2, 2016
By Tom Grenchik
January 22, 1973 is ingrained in the minds of those who cherish human life as the infamous day when the U.S. Supreme Court invalidated state abortion bans and made abortion legal and available on-demand throughout all 9 months of pregnancy across the country.  And every year since the tragic Roe v. Wade decision, people have gathered in Washington, DC, each January to march for life, pray for the protection of unborn children and their mothers, and make their voices heard to federal elected officials.

This coming year, the national March for Life will be held in our nation’s capital on Friday, January 27, 2017.  As happens every four years, the March is shifted by a week due to the Presidential Inauguration.  In addition to the hundreds of thousands who will gather in DC, many thousands more will be gathering at local and regional events from coast to coast. Visit marchforlife.org/mfl-2017/local-march-for-life-events to get a sense for the size of this movement, largely made up of young people compelled to right a grievous wrong from an earlier generation.
Whether you are making a national pilgrimage or a local one, pilgrimages are marked by prayer and penance.  And the U.S. Catholic bishops have created a very adaptable novena to assist you.  9 Days for Life is an annual invitation to join the bishops in focused prayer and action for the nine days encompassing the Roe anniversary and the events marking it nationwide.  Especially geared toward young people, participants can join the bishops in daily prayers and simple sacrifices from Saturday, January 21, to Sunday, January 29. Prayers and activities are provided through email, text messages, various social media platforms, and even a free mobile app.  So even if you can’t attend a physical pilgrimage, you can join in spirit from home, office, or school—and invite others along as well.
Not long ago, we were looking at the prospect of the next appointments to the Supreme Court being justices who would have been deeply committed to further enshrining abortion in our legal system and culture.  Now, perhaps, there is hope that the next justices appointed will be more committed to upholding the Constitution, rather than furthering the culture of death.  Let us offer our prayers and sacrifices for such a hope.
During 9 Days for Life, the bishops not only ask us to pray for children’s and mothers’ lives at risk, but to also pray for the many millions of lives that have been lost, and for those who personally mourn those losses.  Rare is the family that has not been touched by abortion in some way. The novena reminds us to pray for those who grieve and to assure them of hope through post-abortion healing ministries like Project Rachel.
Various ideas for individual or group participation in the novena are available at www.usccb.org/about/pro-life-activities/january-roe-events/9-days-for-life-summary.cfm. The bishops look forward to you joining them in this special time of prayer for our nation. Prayer changes things.

Mirjana Soldo encounters Our Lady on December 2, 2016

December 2, 2016

Dear Family of Mary!

Here is Our Lady’s message to Mirjana Soldo of December 2nd, 2016:

Dear children, my motherly heart is crying as I am looking at what my children are doing. Sins are multiplying, the purity of soul is all the less important; my Son is being forgotten – honored all the less; and my children are being persecuted. That is why, you my children, apostles of my love, with soul and heart invoke the name of my Son. He will have the words of light for you. He manifests Himself to you, He breaks the bread with you and gives you the words of love so that you may transform them into merciful acts and, thus, be witnesses of truth. That is why, my children, do not be afraid. Permit my Son to be in you. He will make use of you to care for the wounded and to convert lost souls. Therefore, my children, return to the prayer of the Rosary. Pray it with feelings of goodness, sacrifice and mercy. Pray, not only with words, but with merciful acts. Pray with love for all people. My Son, by His sacrifice, exalted love. Therefore, live with Him so that you may have strength and hope; that you may have the love which is life and which leads to eternal life. Through God’s love, I am also with you, and will lead you with motherly love. Thank you.


Mirjana said that Our Lady was very sad.


In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Praying for Life: December 2016
Intention
 
May the birth of every child be awaited and celebrated with great joy and thanksgiving.
Prayers
 
 Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be
Reflection
 
The season of Advent calls us to prepare the way for the coming of the Messiah, Emmanuel, God with us. The coming of the Christ child is greeted with overwhelming joy from Mary and Joseph, the shepherds, the Magi, and the entire heavenly host of angels.
 
Despite the challenges facing the Holy Family as they are traveling on the road with no place to stay, the coming of Jesus reveals to them the great gift in their midst. The fears and anxieties of Mary and Joseph are overcome by the immense joy of the birth of the Son of God.
 
Many children come into the world amidst challenging circumstances. Expectant parents are often consumed with very real hardships as they prepare for the arrival of the new child. No matter the circumstances, the birth of a child is always a gift. Let us pray for all parents to lovingly receive their children with joy and be strengthened and supported as they embrace the journey of parenthood.
Acts of Reparation (choose one)

  • Offer up one night’s sleep without your pillow, recalling the Christ child who had no crib in which to lay his head.
  • Donate baby items to a pregnancy care center, or offer to volunteer an hour of your time.
One Step Further 
Read “Accompanying Expectant Mothers Considering Adoption.” Drawing from the personal experience of a mother who placed her child for adoption, this article gives nine pointers for offering ongoing support to other expectant mothers considering adoption.

Women's Rights Without Frontiers | Forced Abortion Is Not A Choice | www.womensrightswithoutfrontiers.org

Dear President-Elect Trump:

WASHINGTON, D.C. Congratulations on your election. We at Women’s Rights Without Frontiers look forward to working with you to advance women’s rights all over the world. To that end, we respectfully request that you immediately investigate International Planned Parenthood. If they are found to be complicit with coercive population control in China – as we believe they will be — we request that you defund them.)

As you may know, China’s One Child (now Two Child) Policy has been responsible for hundreds of millions of forced abortions and sterilizations and untold human suffering. While posturing as a champion of choice, International Planned Parenthood has in fact been working hand in hand with the population control program in China, almost since its inception. Forced abortion is not a choice.

Women’s Rights Without Frontiers calls for a full-scale investigation of International Planned Parenthood to determine the exact nature of its operations in China. Transparency is demanded by the fact that IPPF receives taxpayer dollars from the United States and other nations as well. I believe it is impossible to partner so closely with the Chinese Communist Party’s forced abortion machine without being complicit in its atrocities. This is especially the case when this year we learned that the number of abortions in China is not 13 million, but a staggering 23 million a year. Read more.


YES, I WANT TO HELP END GENDERCIDE AND FORCED ABORTION IN CHINA!

Your donation enables Women’s Rights Without Frontiers to continue to be a voice for the voiceless women and children of China. This huge effort comes at a cost. We need your support. Please give as generously as you can. Every donation makes a difference!
