Life is precious. Life is sacred. All life belongs to God. We should give thanks every day for that gift which He has given to us, and ask Him for the strength to live according to His Will and His alone.
For thou didst form my inward parts, thou didst knit me together in my mother's womb. Ps 139: 13Starting next Wednesday, September 22, there begins a worldwide vigil which focuses on protecting the weakest and most fragile among us. 40 Days for Life professes to be the largest and longest pro-life mobilization in history.

The Church has a long history of vigils and periods of focused and purposeful prayer. If nothing else comes of these words but a few extra prayers that help move a young mother away from a trip to an abortion clinic and toward a better choice like adoption, then our efforts will have been more than worth it.
Pray to end abortion, euthanasia and the death penalty. Pray for life.
