40 Days for Life

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."

Thanks for the link. As you know you are the person whose witness led me to participate in the movement. For that I will always be grateful.
