"It's A Matter of Life..."  by Denver Sallee

Politicians in both political parties urge people defending the sanctity of human life to work together to find "common ground" with pro-death advocates on the abortion issue. Such abstract rhetoric has no substance and abjectly denies the fact that there is no "common ground". What common ground could possibly exist when the humanity of a preborn  child isn’t recognized? There is no common ground between heaven and hell,  light and darkness, good and evil and certainly not between either defending or destroying innocent children. These concepts are contradictory by their very nature and have no common ground.  St. Paul tells us that "light and darkness have nothing in common" (2 Corinthians 6:14) Each and every day, we must preach the Truth of the Gospel of Life because light and darkness have everything in common if we allow the light to be eliminated.

The vigil calendars for the 40 Days for Life 2018 Spring Campaign have been created and are ready for you to reserve your time slots for prayer and witness at:

PRETERM - PLANNED PARENTHOODFAMILY PLANNING

Every hour of every day for 45 years there has been 152 innocent lives lost to abortion. Each of those lives was created in God's image, in His likeness, with an immortal soul, an angel assigned to minister to them, and a unique purpose for them to carry out. The pro-life movement has made significant gains in the last few years, so I encourage you, brothers and sisters, to make every effort to ensure your participation in this 40 Days for Life campaign to end abortion is the most sacrificial and prayerful ever!
Thank you! Any questions please contact John Noall at 216-245-9744 clevelandpraysforlife@gmail.com.

LET US PRAY

 

Lenten Pro-life Prayer


Father of all mercy, 
We thank you for this season of grace and light. 
We know that sin has blinded us. 
Draw us ever closer to you, in prayer and penance. 
 
Since you, O God, are light itself, 
Give all your people a clearer understanding 
Of what is sin, and what is virtue. 
 
Grant in particular that we may see, as never before, 
The profound dignity of every human life, 
Including the vulnerable unborn children. 
 
Give us grace to defend
Our brothers and sisters in the womb
By our prayers, our words,
And our self-sacrificing actions.
 
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
