Sanctity of Life Sunday - But What Can I Do?

Tragically, abortion has been around for decades now. Pro-life advocates and prayer warriors have worked tirelessly - and still abortion is readily available for the puniest of reasons. Were we not faith-filled people of God, it might be easy to lose heart. But we labor on, doing our best, because we know we are not alone. We have a God Who truly cares for us and for the unborn. It's not our duty to garner results easily measured by human means. Rather, it's our duty to do our best - to give our all.

This January will mark the 41st year of legalized abortion. There will be marches all over the country and the Annual March for Life in Washington D.C. will again produce hundreds of thousand of participants. At a local level, there will also be commemorative Masses said in every diocese in our country, as well as in many parishes. We have an opportunity, then, to personally participate in petitioning God on behalf of our innocent brothers and sisters. They are in mortal danger, even as they reside in what should be the safest place on earth - their mothers' wombs.

Won't you join a local parish hosting a pro-life Mass? It might just mean you've taken part in saving a life!
