Being a Witness

I cannot believe how fast time passes by; yesterday marked three weeks of me being here. This week I have been assigned to go to Choices, under the direction of Sr. Dorothy, one of the best sidewalk counselors in the nation.  I would say 95% of the girls stop to speak to her, and most of them end up deciding to keep their babies. The secret to her success is the power of prayers and not only her prayers but the prayers of others, including our prayers. I have been assigned for the past two days to be one of her prayer warriors. Today was late term abortion day, usually according to Sr. Dorothy the clinic is packed with women starting the two day process. However, today was different, only one third of the woman came to the clinic. Meaning that there were babies saved thanks to our prayers. I want to ask each one of you to come out to the sidewalks even though you might not feel called to do sidewalk counseling, you are always called to pray and to be a witness not only to these women but to those passing by.  Even though we are starting to have more evidence on how cruel the abortion industry is, we have to remember that God is in control. He needs us to pray; He needs us to stand up as a society to defend the most vulnerable of our kind, the unborn. Prayer in my opinion is the greatest weapon that we have to fight against this great evil; we have to include activism of course, but without prayer our actions will not get far. Prayer is what keeps us grounded. Prayer is what gives us hope to keep going. Prayer is our strength. Like St. Padre Pio said “Prayer is the oxygen to our soul”, without it we cannot survive, especially not during battle. May God bless you and keep you, may he grant you the desires of your heart. May Mother Mary cover our world with her mantle of love.

Your Sister In Christ,

St.Padre Pio, pray for us.
