Here we go! It’s the start of the TWENTY-FOURTH 40 Days For Life Campaign in Pensacola. At Saturday’s kick-off I spoke about 40 Days for Life is our call to holiness. I quoted Mother Angelica at Saturday’s opening celebration. God’s call to holiness! God is calling us with our human nature.
“He intends us to do the ridiculous so he can manifest His presence, His love, His mercy.
40 Days witness to our neighbor how loving and merciful God is. A witness that God calls not only you, but through you, calls our neighbors to GREAT SANCTITY and GREAT HOLINESS.
It’s our neighbors weaknesses and faults that call and bring forth from me and you the very best in us. Not the WORST in us. Don’t let our neighbor be an excuse for you to indulge in your weaknesses, because God is calling you to GREAT things in this world. Great things in the kingdom. Great holiness of life. Greatness is what God has destined you to be, to become.” Mother Angelica LIVE Classics, Living Christianity
40 Days for Life is one of God’s calls to greatness, to holiness in our lifetime.
Focus on this number 75% of women scheduled for abortions do not show up for their abortions when someone is present peacefully praying in front of local abortion facilities. Did you hear that? When someone is present. When someone is present. Who is that someone?
For most of you I bet you are saying, “It’s someone else, of course. Phew. I’m off the hook. I’m so glad someone else will do it.” It’s our human nature right. Someone else will always do it.
For our own good, You and I are that SOMEONE. If we are not that SOMEONE, then NO ONE will show up.
Let’s fill the vigil calendar each day from 6 AM to 6 PM from today through April 5th, so that not one mother will say no one was there for her, but that someone, you, were there praying for her.
