40 Days for Life starts Wednesday in 238 locations. I will be participating with the group in a nearby town. Tonight is the vigil Mass for our group. We will pray afterwards at the local abortion clinic ( i.e. baby killing center).
My friend Mike has a wonderful post about his involvement with the 40 Days campaign. He begins -
"This Wednesday, September 22nd, is the start of the next campaign of 40 Days for Life. Twice a year, for 40 consecutive days, a group of people (over 350,000) pray and fast, at home or at abortion clinics in all 50 states, plus several other countries. Our goal is ambitious - to end abortion.
I got involved in the movement last fall, following the example of an online friend. I had heard about it before but was uncertain, and a little scared. I had seen and heard reports of pro-life "extremists" as well as pro-choice "extremists" and thought it would be a horrible, stressful experience. However, as I discovered it is a beautiful way to do something positive, and help save lives."
