My All Saints Day with 40 Days for Life!

Picture above are a few of the wonderful people I prayed with during my time with 40 Days for Life.
I spent time on All Saints Day with a wonderful and devout crew of Catholics in front of the Planned Parenthood Abortion Mill in Rochester, NY.
It was a bit nippy, but while we were praying the rosary the sun came through and seemed to be God smiling on us.
I had the little ones with me and wish the older boys could have joined us as well, but schedules did not allow it.
The people praying at the vigil site were kind, generous, and so loving.
We prayed and prayed and prayed.
I have to say that when I drove by the Planned Parenthood Abortion Mill to get to the vigil, I felt evil itself lurking in the air.
My stomach turned when I thought about this being a place where babies are murdered and I , first as a Catholic- Second as a mother- and third as a registered nurse that I could not run in there and do something about it.
How heavy my heart felt!
I turned it over to God and joined by fellow pro-lifers in praying!
We briefly discussed our concerns in regards to the election, but I know that if the election does not turn its favor to LIFE that this will only urge all of us to work harder and to have a stronger faith in the Lord.
I want to thank the wonderful 40 Days for Life crew I meet on Sunday, to Jose for all his hard work for organizing, and David Bereit, National Campaign Director40 Days for Life for the amazing job that he did.
I hope next year to organize a 40 Days for Life in my community and I encourage each of you to consider doing the same.
A close and dear friend reminded me that it is one thing to say you are pro-life and do nothing and it is another to get out there in the trenches so you get dirty.
I think it is time for more of us to get dirty.
Blessed be God Forever!

You sure walk-the walk, and may God bless you for it!

Thank you Tom, I do try. I have to try hard to be a good example to the four souls I have been loaned by God. I don't want to not be able to tell him that I was not the example they needed. God bless you as well!

Your friend in Christ,
