Come, Holy Spirit: 40 Days for Life
Jesus, we trust in YOU. On Saturday, March 25, a group of ordinary parishioners prayed in front of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. There was no condemnation, no bullying ... just waves, smiles, heartfelt prayer—and resources to offer the choice to give life to a child. Because while we say to ourselves, “It’s not my place to tell others what to do,” the Evil One is busy mixing up the truth in tattered souls. He tells them they have a right to their bodies; then, after an abortion, he says they are terrible sinners and unworthy of God’s forgiveness. But Jesus counters by saying, “Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have come to call not the righteous but sinners” (Matt 9:13). May no one ever say again, “Why didn’t anyone tell me I had a choice that had a happy ending?” May we no longer be afraid to speak God’s truth in love when it comes to the matter of abortion.
