Rain Could Never Damper Pro-Life Spirit

Fifty pro-lifers took part in the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The morning starting with many losing an hour of sleep the night before, yet they offered it up for the conversion of souls, especially those involved with the culture of death. It also was pouring rain. Some had Sunday commitments at their parishes that caused them to run late. However, everything came to together by the grace of God.

The meetup was outside of Suburban Station on 16th and JFK. The group, as in the year’s past, were in the early group that would march first in the parade. Some handed out prayer cards for the end of abortion, which includes a spiritual adoption made possible by Archbishop Fulton J Sheen. It reads: “Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of [baby’s name] the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.” 

The spiritual adoption prayer is encouraged to be prayed every day for nine months straight.

Along the parade route, Pat Stanton’s brother Dennis provided a personal PA system that blasted well known Irish songs while parade goers would cheer on the small contingent as they were in the parade to plant the seeds for potential conversion and to make their voices heard. No question that our voices were heard.
