Message in a Box

blackmomandbaby-1

The following is from Dr. Monique Ruberu with the need to fill hours for the upcoming days during the 40 Days for Life

I keep a box of cards in my office waiting room so people can write cards for moms considering abortion. Every morning before I start my day I read the cards and I am always blown away by the love, encouragement, and stories my patients share through these cards.

Today I read this message :

Dear beautiful mom,

Breathe, take a deep breath and bring your mind and your heart to peace.

I do not know you or what you are going through, but I just want to let you know that whatever is going on – you are NOT alone.

I spent 13 months living in a homeless shelter for pregnant women. I met countless scared, confused, hurt women who found themselves in unexpected pregnancies and truly had no idea what to do or who to turn to.

YOU are not alone. There is HOPE. I met many women who questioned what to do about their pregnancy and slowly I saw them see the glimmer of hope. Hope that they can and will be wonderful mothers. I ask you to take a minute I think of the baby you carry as a gift. You are not alone. You are Strong! You can do this!! I am rooting for you and praying for you!

Br strong pretty girl! Love and God bless – Erin.

these messages and many others are in the blessing bags you will hand out when you come to pray.

please fill the hours below – especially the ones for tomorrow

40 Days For Life: DAY 23: Choice is real…so is coercion — Deacon John’s Space

The choice of abortion is like all choices–it comes with consequences. Abortion advocates hide behind this term as if abortion is a flippant choice that happens, and all involved simply move on. The former CEO of Planned Parenthood publicly treated her own abortion as something trivial. That is degrading to the women and all involved […]

Two Saves in Torrential Rain

40 Days Rain.jpg

From an email blast sent out by Dr. Monique Ruberu.

Dear Friends,

I am so grateful for those of you who stood in the torrential rain today to minister to the beautiful women and babies we serve.

here is an uplifting story from Jane who is a year around sidewalk servant as well.

Praise God! I believe we helped 2 sisters save their babies, this afternoon. After finishing my FOL (Flame of Love) Rosary, I prayed repeatedly (most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ save us and the whole world).  A large car pulled up and I greeted 3 women and 2 small children before they got out of the car. They were headed to “pp”, but willing to listen and receive a blessing bag. One woman knew she was pregnant and wanted to go over to our women’s center right away. Thank God they welcomed her and her friend or sister.  I continued the conversation with the woman staying with the children, she told me she too may be pregnant and wanted a few more blessing bags and more information. Her name was H. The children in the car belonged to her sister. The children were smiling and waving to me.  While I was talking to them Mary Gerry continued to pray the rosary.
Mary and I stayed until 2:30, we waited for someone to relieve us, but no one came. When we were sure they would be good (they were smiling and thankful) we left after putting the signs and bag away. The rain continued the whole time we were there.

They never even entered pp because of their peaceful loving witness in the rain!!! Thanks be to God!!!

We have had multiple signs and boxes stolen during this vigil… please go to the following link and print resources to bring with you:

Even A Rainy Day Mourns The Loss of Innocent Life

twins babies

I am staring out into the side yard from the dining room, figuring out what to write. Then, tap, tap, tap, tap.  I continue to hear it and realize that it’s raining. It is not always sunny in Philadelphia, folks. I thought to myself that the rain is from the babies who were murdered. Babies who could’ve brought joy to the world and even their families. Why? Why are we allowing this to happen?

God wants us to stop the innocent from being silenced by the apathy of his people. We cannot just stand around and be silent on this issue. We need to step out of our comfort zones (that includes the gadgets that consume our time) and pray and give witness to life with the intention of our culture’s conversion.

Are you willing to answer the call? Visit here to find a campaign in your area.  

First Save at 777 Appletree in Current Campaign

PWC

Dr. Monique Ruberu reports the first save of the current fall campaign at the Philadelphia Women’s Center. 

A woman came out. We thought she was post-abortion, but when we offered her the “Help after Abortion” sheet (from the pamphlet), she said “Oh I’m not having an abortion.  I changed my mind.” She didn’t stop to talk but kept walking to her car, so we don’t know what caused her to change her mind.  We were so happy and told her so.  We called to her and asked if she needed any assistance or info, but she said no, she was fine and shared a big smile. We told her we would pray for her and for her baby. Praise God and thank you for the people who were praying in witness this morning when she entered the center!

All the prayers help!!! Please show up and pray for the lives of these babies and mothers.

Prayer Vigil to be Held at Site of Vandalism at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Buckingham Township, Pennsylvania

crosses

As the abortion battle heats up and we get closer to Roe v Wade being reversed, we are seeing and experiencing hate crimes committed against pro-life advocates and pro-life materials at an ever increasing rate.

We have read stories on Life News about pro-life signs being destroyed, pro-life prayer warriors being assaulted and in our own area one of our state legislators even went so far as to verbally harass and dox a middle age woman and three teens.

This past weekend, vandals struck again at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church  in Central Bucks County, destroying many of the memorial crosses we have on our grounds at the corner of Route 413 and Cold Creamery Roads. These crosses are put up each year to remember the lives taken through abortion since 1973.

Our first reaction was shock, then anger.  How do we get past this anger?   Through prayer!

Please join us for a prayer vigil on Saturday, October 19th at 12 noon at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church at the same corner where our memorial crosses are placed. (map)

Our intention is two-fold, to prayer for the person(s) who committed this destruction, and to give witness to the community that, in the words of Father Pavone’s  Prayer to End Abortion, ‘we will never be silent, never be passive, never be forgetful of the unborn.  That we will commit ourselves to be active in the pro-life movement, and never stop defending life until all our brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice not just for some, but for all’.

Our Lady of Fatima and How We Must Pray the Rosary for An End to Abortion

MOTS.jpg

The Blessed Mother has always played a vital role for Catholics in the fight against abortion. This post is fitting as I post it on the 102nd anniversary of the “Miracle of the Sun”.

Near Fatima, Portugal, in 1917, three children said they saw apparitions of the Virgin Mary, which the Catholic Church accepted as authentic. It became one of the most widespread Marian devotions of the 20th Century.

Now, we must bear to ask the question, how is Our Lady of Fatima connected to the pro-life movement just as much as Our Lady of Guadalupe?

From May 1917 to October 1917, Our Blessed Mother appeared to three children (Jacinta and Francisco Marto, and Lucia Dos Santos). One of the most striking and powerful images the children saw was that of hell in July of that year. Sister Lucia described it:

“Our Lady showed us a great sea of fire which seemed to be under the earth. Plunged in this fire were demons and souls in human form, like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, floating about in the conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames that issued from within themselves together with great clouds of smoke, now falling back on every side like sparks in a huge fire, without weight or equilibrium, and amid shrieks and groans of pain and despair, which horrified us and made us tremble with fear. The demons could be distinguished by their terrifying and repulsive likeness to frightful and unknown animals, all black and transparent. This vision lasted but an instant. How can we ever be grateful enough to our kind heavenly Mother, who had already prepared us by promising, in the first Apparition, to take us to heaven. Otherwise, I think we would have died of fear and terror.”

Fast forward to today and we are seeing many sins of the flesh committed. One of the most sins committed is the misuse of sex. Sexual promiscuity has destroyed the sacred promise a man makes to a woman when they are united as one flesh in matrimony. In a sense, the misuse of the gift God gave us leads to an abortion when the man does not take responsibility. Some examples include contracepted sex, adultery, fornication, prostitution, pornography, immodest dress, masturbation, homosexuality. In turn, some sins of the flesh often give rise to other serious sins such as abortion and can lead to unfaithfulness, marital breakdown, and divorce.

We need to reclaim that sex is worth waiting for. Our culture may tell us that it is okay, but we must take a step back and see sex as a gift that is given to us in marriage.

Today, our job is to save souls from the inferno suffering of hell. We must fast, pray our rosaries, and most importantly, take a stand for our Catholic faith 24/7. We are in the most pivotal battle of our lives. God is calling all of his soldiers to be battle-ready. Are you willing to answer the call to exercise your duty as a Catholic?

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have the most need of your mercy.”

 

 

Warminster Planned Parenthood Cited for Health Violations

Pro-Abortion PA Governor Tom Wolf and Former Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards Visit Warminster Planned Parenthood on April 20, 2017

Below are excerpts from a Health Department report from an on-site inspection at Planned Parenthood in Warminster, PA. This is public information. Thanks to a long time pro-life prayer warrior and sidewalk counselor for bringing this report to light.

Initial Comments:
This report is the result of an unannounced onsite survey conducted on August 14, 2019, at Planned Parenthood Keystone – Warminster (PPKey – Warminster). It was determined the facility was not in compliance with the requirements of the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s Rules and Regulations for Ambulatory Care Facilities, Annex A, Title 28, Part IV, Subparts A and F, Chapters 551-573, November 1999.

Observations:
Based on review of facility documents, medical records (MR) and staff interview (EMP), it was determined the facility failed to meet the minimum Medicare standard 416.47(b) Standard: Form and Content of Record for compliance, that is established by the facility’s accrediting organization by failing to ensure the name of the physician and dosage of medications administered for a paracervical block (regional anesthesia causing a loss of sensation in a region of the body which results from the injection of a local anesthetic on each side of the cervix) was documented for one of six surgical abortion medical records reviewed (MR6); failing to ensure the maximum recommended dose of Lidocaine (an anesthetic) was not exceeded when administered as a paracervical block for one of six surgical abortion medical records reviewed (MR10).
