40 Days Call in Philadelphia

Once again we are asking for pro-life warriors in Southeast Pennsylvania to join the 40 Days for Life Campaign in center city Philly.  Below is a message from Ted Meehan looking for  help from us at the Planned Parenthood on Locust Street.  Please pray and consider committing to join this campaign to witness outside this killing center.  Your prayers and presence do help to save lives. 

Center City Philly

Jesus told us that “the Gates of Hell will not prevail against you”. Until a few years ago, I pictured the Gates of Hell coming to attack, and wad comforted that they would not overwhelm me. But in Jesus’ time, the Gates were the protection from invading forces. To understand this is to realize that when Jesus promises that the Gates of Hell will not prevail against us, He is calling us to CONFRONT the Gates of Hell! If we confront Evil, it cannot prevail. Only if we remain in our comfort zone, can the Gates of Hell prevail. So we must get out and confront Evil where it is!

I ask each of you to sign up for at least one hour, on one day during Lent to stand before the Gates of Hell. They cannot prevail against us!

In Philadelphia, at 12th & Locust, or at 8th & Appletree, there is the greatest need for our help. God bless Pat Stanton and Monique Ruberu for sacraficially reaching out to recruit good people – not just for 40 days, but for 320 days! They strive to cover the two most infamous killing centers in Pennsylvania. It would lighten their load – a little bit – if you could witness at one of these two locations. But any witness at any abortion center will be a blessing.

Take a moment now to sign up by going to: https://www.40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/philadelphia/

Ask a fellow pro-life parishioner to join you to pray for 1 hour. You will be blessed, and you may be used by the Holy Spirit to save a life. Your presence is your witness for Life. Those who see you will be changed. They may not realize it, but they will be. 

For those of you who head up a parish group, consider gathering others from your parish to take a full day. 8am to 5pm. 9 hours.

Lent 2021 Preview: Planned Parenthood (Center City Campaign)

For seven straight years, the 40 Days for Life campaign has been present outside of the largest Planned Parenthood in the heart of Philadelphia.

Their numbers have dropped because of our presence for a while until the lockdown last March, which saw an increase in abortions plus ceasing the campaign early.

The hypocrisy is businesses in PA had to suffer while Planned Parenthood, thanks to their friend Gov. Tom Wolf, profit off a questionable pandemic. At the same time, churches were only to be open for prayer but no masses or services. We got a preview of communism through the Wolf Administration, particularly from his closest ally, Dr. Richard “Rachel” Levine.

This time we will have a full campaign during Lent as it will run from Ash Wednesday (February 17th) to March 27th. The hours are: Monday through Saturday 8AM to 4PM.

To sign up for this campaign, visit here.

Lent 2021 40 Days for Life Preview: Philadelphia Women’s Center

With 40 Days for Life Lent 2021 campaign approaching, it is time to consider sacrificing a few hours of your time to give witness to life. I am not talking about on your computer screen or cell phone. Rather, you being actually present in front of abortion facilities.

For those who were involved with Philadelphia’s Inaugural March for Life, there was a stop in front of a notorious chop shop just steps away from Independence Hall.

Entering its ninth campaign, we hope that many will step up to be present outside of the largest non Planned Parenthood affiliate in the state of Pennsylvania. On an annual basis, 6,500 babies are murdered, five floors above a daycare. 90% of the victims are African American.

The campaign will run from February 17th through March 27th. The hours for this campaign are: Tuesday through Friday 7AM-3PM, Saturday 6AM-3PM. Note: there’s a regular prayer vigil that runs from 6:30AM to 9AM. The facility is closed on Sundays and Mondays.

Eighteen pro-life warriors braved the rain, wind and cold yesterday to be present for our Life Chain to end the 40 Days of Prayer and Repentance in Warminster, Pennsylvania. Although there were a few negative responses to our efforts, most who drove past were supportive.

The Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition thanks all who came out during these 40 Days to pray for and end to abortion at this facility and give witness to the community on the horrors committed here and at other killing centers across the nation. 

Our next event at the Planned Parenthood in Warminster is our monthly First Friday Life Chain which will be held this Friday, November 6th from 9:30 – 10:30 am.  And don’t forget our Walking with Moms in Need this coming Saturday, November 7th at Peace Valley Park.  Click on this link for more information on this event.

Day 22 of Prayer and Scripture to #endabortion

 

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. – Ephesians 4: 32-32 

Let us pray:

We pray that our lives would reflect our redemption, so others may see it and trust in You.  In obedience to you and by your grace, we choose to forgive others as You have forgiven us.  In the name of Christ, we pray.  Amen.  * from 40 Days for Life devotional

“Plead my cause and redeem me; give me life according to your promise!” – Psalm 119:54

Day 20 of Prayer and Scripture to #endabortion

Meditation: 

“When political issues have moral and spiritual dimensions, we have a responsibilty to speak for the truth.  Abortion has divided our nation like no other issue in recent times.  God places the highest value on human life.  The Bible recognizes the unborn as being fully human.”  –  Reverend Billy Graham.
