As a midpoint event of the semi-annual 40 Days for Life Campaign in Northeast Philadelphia, a Rosary Rally and Life Chain will be held on Sunday, October 13th at Roosevelt Blvd & Comly Road (closest intersection to Planned Parenthood).
The Rosary Rally takes place on the anniversary of the sixth apparition of Our Lady to the children at Fatima.
The purpose of our public witness is in reparation for the offenses committed against Our Lord and His Blessed Mother at this abortion facility.
Rose D’Adamo, one of the coordinators of the Rosary Rally reminds us of what Saint Padre Pio told us, “The Rosary is the ‘weapon’ for these times.”
A Life Chain at the same location will follow. Tom Lacy, coordinator for this Life Chain had this to say, “I feel whenever we do a live chain it is extremely positive, effective and uplifting. We show signs showing unborn baby at 1, 3 and 5 months with others holding signs ‘Pray to end abortion’ and ‘Abortion Kills Children’. Whenever you get reaction about 8 out of 10 are usually positive.”
The coordinator for the 40 Days for Life in Northeast Philly, Anita Flynn reminds us that this global campaign runs from September 25th thru November 3rd. At Comly Road the vigil hours are 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM Monday thru Saturday (no Sunday vigil).
She stated, “There were 2,263 abortions performed at the Planned Parenthood on Comly Road in Northeast Philadelphia in 2018. That’s why the 40 Days for Life campaign is so important. Prayers, support and a physical presence could make someone change her mind from having an abortion to learning about other pro-life options. We thank those who have been standing outside Comly Road for many, many years and welcome anyone who has never participated in a 40 Days vigil before. Please check out the 40 Days website and if you have any questions at all about the vigil in Northeast Philadelphia, please contact Anita Flynn 267-456-4582 or firstname.lastname@example.org.”
We strongly urge all residents of Northeast Philadelphia to get behind these two events. This is a great opportunity to show support for the success of the fall campaign for 40 Days for Life. If we want to end abortion in our city and our country, we need to step up and give public witness.
