Dr. Monique Ruberu offers a reflection from this past weekend outside of both abortion facilities in Philadelphia.
This past Saturday once again we showed up and prayed outside of 777 and 12th. At 777 we covered the street and sidewalks with exorcised salt and anointed all the prayer warriors with exorcised oil…
Heather as usual showed up with her sage but we continued praying for them all.
I heard from another prayer warrior who said the following :
“A year ago, I stole an idea from a woman who participated with us Helpers a few times a few years ago. I bring Holy Water with me and bless the space right in front of the gate at 12th/Locust: three Crosses for Father/Son/Holy Spirit. The first time that I did it at 777 was this past Spring. We’d gotten an early dismissal from work, so I went over there to pray. The guard saw that and came out and smudged the entire area. The same thing happened again this summer and I blessed the area again. And the guard came out again. Or rather, she PLANNED to do so. I watched through the window as she tried .. and tried .. and tried .. and tried .. and tried to light the sage bundle .. but it WOULDN’T take, it just wouldn’t stay lit. Holy Water – 1; Sage Bundle – 0.” Thanks R!!!
At 12th there was a pro choice protest outside the Community Women’s Center. Our faithful prayer warriors continued the vigil outside of 12th and locust while they were there… these protests will come and go… even though they block the doors and act the fool the police may not even step in but God sees everything and He alone will make a way for us. We continue our work because we work for Him.
