PHILLY YOUTH MISSIONS WITNESSED OUTSIDE OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD ON GOOD FRIDAY; BROUGHT CHRIST TO POOR, MARGINALIZED, AND THOSE IN NEED

In its 10th year, Philly Youth Mission continued its annual Good Friday in Center City.

The morning began with a faithful witness outside of Planned Parenthood with 300 strong in attendance from all walks of life and different denominations.

Testimonies from Maria Liney and Monique Ruberu preceded the rosary.

Dr. Liney, a counselor by profession, shared how she was hesitant to take a group to pray outside of an abortion facility out of fear. However, after much prayer, she took the leap of faith and was instrumental in helping spread the message to women in their hour of great need.

Dr. Ruberu shared a recap on the recent success of the recent 40 Days campaign at both locations in Philadelphia. She even shared that two women, both of whom were pregnant weeks apart, came to her office to discuss keeping their babies. She closed to encourage those gathered to be present every day outside of the modern-day concentration camps in our communities and cities.

During the rosary, powerful meditations on the sorrowful mysteries were so poignant to the jeers, ridicule, and even mockery the faithful witnesses have endured, yet they kept the faith and no question prayed for everyone’s conversion.

After everyone gathered outside for an hour of prayer, the young missionaries, a majority from three Catholic High Schools in Philadelphia, broke off carrying heavy wooden cross (made of actual wood) around the city collecting prayer intentions.

After collecting intentions from passerbyers and those in need, they acted out the stations of the cross on the streets of Center City from Rittenhouse Square to the Basilica and everywhere in between.

Their witness gave the city a spark of hope and a gesture of love and mercy. Even Christ would have joined these young missionaries who are taking time out of their Easter break to bring the gospel and faith to the street.

THE CASE FOR JOE GALE AS GOVERNOR OF PENNSYLVANIA

With the primary race for PA Governor just a few mere weeks away, it is clear that there is one candidate who can cross off everything voters need to defeat Josh Shapiro and undo everything Tom Wolf has done… Joe Gale.

Against all odds, Joe Gale won a challenging and dirty race in 2015 to become Commissioner of Montgomery County after he learned of the establishment Republicans in the county had endorsed a board member of Planned Parenthood. He won by 1000 votes between him and the establishment candidate.

What sets him apart from establishment candidates like Jake Corman and Doug Mastriano is his events called “Cup of Joe”. He has held more than 1000 of these events since 2015. During these events, he connects with voters throughout Pennsylvania to discuss the issues pressing them.

In the summer of 2017, he became a voice for families of Berks County who wanted to remove Planned Parenthood and its agenda in the public school system. With his help and voice, the nine-member school board voted down Planned Parenthood by a narrow 5-4 vote.

With Joe Gale, we have a powerful voice that is needed to walk the walk and not just talk the talk. Joe Gale is the complete package that is needed for Pennsylvania.

He has even fought the recent mask mandates in his county that have been waning our school children. He brings a common-sense approach to politics.

With Joe Gale, he can restore common sense, undo the Tom Wolf and RINO legacy combined, and most importantly bring more common sense to Harrisburg and the entire keystone state.

I am endorsing Joe Gale for Governor. You should too. Let’s support more candidates like him that are more action than talk.

#SAYTHEIRNAMES: Ángel, Holly, Phoenix, Harriet and Christopher

News broke last week of the discovery of five babies who were murdered by means of infanticide in our nation’s capital. Tragic.

The suspected abortionist was exposed by Live Action who admitted that he won’t help any baby that survives an abortion.

This is a tragedy. Even lawmakers, Department of Justice, and others refuse to pay attention to the injustice that is happening in Washington. They also refuse to investigate.

Is this Gosnell 2.0?

We must take action today. Students for Life is leading the way and you can participate today. Help them bring justice to the five babies left to die.

U.S SENATE CONFIRMS BROWN-JACKSON; FULFILLING BIDEN’S RADICAL ABORTION AGENDA

It was no contest when three republicans, one a former presidential candidate ten years ago, will support Biden’s controversial nominee to the high court. They and their Democrat colleagues sealed her fate.

Today, with a 53-47 vote, President Biden’s promise to the abortion lobby has been fulfilled. Even Joe Manchin, Senator of West Virginia, sided with his Democratic colleagues in support of the controversial nominee. Manchin recently put some of Biden’s plans in limbo, until today. Three Republicans, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Mitt Romney of Utah, crossed party lines to support Biden’s nominee.

Sadly, Brown-Jackson’s confirmation to the Supreme Court is a threat to the progress of the pro-life movement over the past five decades.

“She doesn’t hold a position that ‘all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights… Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.’ Judge Jackson says she has no position on whether you have a right to life.” said Senator Ted Cruz.

Even Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina took it a step further, “The historic nature of Judge Jackson’s nomination reinforces the progress our country has made. However, ideology must be the determining factor—not identity.”

Brown-Jackson also took heat during the hearings about how she let sex offenders and pedophiles receive a light sentence.

FIVE SAVES IN ONE WEEK

The headline says it all. In two separate email blasts within 48 hours, Monique reported five saves.

On Monday and Tuesday, a save took place, one from each facility. On Friday, a student from UPenn reported of a woman changing her mind about abortion and connected her to Alpha Pregnancy in West Philly.

On Wednesday, a pro-lifer encountered a police officer who shared how he saved his son from abortion 34 years ago.

Then, Dr. Monique Ruberu received two calls about women who took the abortion pill and want to reverse it. She was able to call in the medication needed to begin the process.

We are making strides. Continue to do your part in saving lives with your loving and peaceful presence.

DISNEY PRESENTS: WOKE IDEOLOGY

Turning Red courtesy of NBC News

Has Disney gone woke? After the recent leak of their agenda to go after innocent children and destroy what their namesake founder has created, the answer is yes. There is no question Walt Disney would be appalled over the direction Disney has embarked and now woke ideology is slowly creeping into the innocence of children.

Now, as the culture of death continues to attack children, it is looking for all avenues to disrupt their developmental skills and reasoning.

The most recent example is that of their recent animated release of Turning Red. In the movie, the main character develops sexual fantasies of him naked and in bed. The abortion lobby even infiltrated the “My Body, My Choice” message in the ending of the movie in the form of “My Manda, My Choice”.

It is no coincidence that a stunt like this came just a month after Governor DeSantis signed a law protecting the children of Florida from the LGBT lobby in their attempt of indoctrinating children attending the public schools. Now, the abortion lobby will stop it nothing to go after our children through cartoons and other forms of entertainment.

Parents, protect your children. Stand against the Woke Mob.

Go Woke! Go Broke!

GOOD FRIDAY CROSSWALK/PRAYER VIGIL/LIVING STATIONS OF THE CROSS IN CENTER CITY

Philly Youth Philly are gearing up for another Holy Week. Last year, they were in awe of the fact that the annual tradition was back in person after going virtual.

Mission Youth Philly is a group of high school, college students, and young adults that proclaim the gospel to all of the marginalized in the community. Reaching out to those on the margins at the most vulnerable stage is no different than the homeless, the drug addict, or even someone who needs to return to the faith with a contrite heart.

The event will begin with a 9AM prayer service outside of Planned Parenthood (1144 Locust Street). After the one hour of prayer in front of the devil’s layer, the youth will go around the city, carrying crosses made of real wood, sharing the message while offering to pray for those in need. Each intention the youth collect will be nailed to the cross and offered during the Good Friday service at the cathedral.

In the afternoon, the students will act out the Stations of the Cross with a procession from St. Patrick’s in Rittenhouse Square to the south lawn of the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral.

There is still time to register if you’re a high school or college student for this amazing and faith filled event. You have options for one day, five day, or even the entire Holy Week depending on your availability.

It will change your life.

PRO-LIFERS IN GREATER PHILADELPHIA RALLY FOR LIFE AT INDEPENDENCE HALL

Pro-lifers across the Greater Philadelphia area gathered in the City of Brotherly Love for the 2nd annual March for Life in Philly.

With over 300 in attendance. they all gave voice to the most vulnerable in our society through their love and bold witness.

Before Mass, Catholics gathered at the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral for a rosary and singing of “America the Beautiful”. In his homily, Fr. Gill told those gathered to “Our efforts begin with God. Be encouraged, not discouraged.” He goes on to say that Catholics are not only armed with prayer but also with the Eucharist.

On the lawn of the cathedral, Catholics joined their Protestants brothers and sisters in Christ in a ecumenical prayer service as many pastors ask for God for his intercession to end the senseless violence committed against everyone from womb to tomb.

The march went from the cathedral to Independence Hall with a stop at Philadelphia Women’s Center. While there, pro-lifers saw the reality of where the murders take place while overcoming the vile hatred and ridicule from the volunteers and workers there who masked their disgust on their faces of the loving and peaceful pro-lifers assembled. All were reminded to treat them with mercy and kindness. Even a woman came out scared and crying as sadly she had her child murder despite the pleas to offer the woman post-abortive help.

The rally helped energize the faithful as they heard from Toni McFadden, Monique Ruberu, Michael Geer, Pete DeMaio, and Kristan Hawkins.

The fitting part of the rally is Kristan Hawkins correlating the Declaration of Independence with the three unalienable rights our founders mention in the historic document. She goes on to tell the faithful in attendance to “be bold. be not afraid. defend life.”

Everyone is ready to make their bold stand against abortion now. They have God on their side and are ready to get the job done, no matter the critical outcomes that will be decided in the next few months.

Pro-lifers, assemble! Do not be afraid to step into the breach and offer your gifts and talents to cultivate the pro-life message.
