From the Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts newsletter, some sobering info (thanks Rod).  This needs to be our Call to Action for Prayer Vigil protests on Pleasant.St:
"Over the last two years, you have pledged $17 million to PPLM's Sexual Health Matters Campaign. We're raising $30 million to fund initiatives like our new Worcester health center (cover page), electronic health records and our middle school curriculum." ... "Volunteers in Worcester were given a challenging task: Raise $3 million from the Central Massachusetts community to fund a new Worcester health center. Two years and more than $2 million later, they're proving that they were more than ready for the challenge."

Dec 4 First Friday Mass 8PM Problem Pregnancy Chapel 495 Pleasant.St, Worcester, MA followed by all night Eucharistic Adoration, and 8AM Saturday Mass.
Dec 5 Sat 9-10AM Prayer vigil protest at the new Planned Parenthood on 472 Pleasant St.  This is typically a busy day at Planned Parenthood, and it may be their opening weekend, so if you can stop by please do

The Manhattan Declaration can be summed up by its last paragraph:
"Because we honor justice and the common good, we will not comply with any edict that purports to compel our institutions to participate in abortions, embryo-destructive research, assisted suicide and euthanasia, or any other anti-life act; nor will we bend to any rule purporting to force us to bless immoral sexual partnerships, treat them as marriages or the equivalent, or refrain from proclaiming the truth, as we know it, about morality and immorality and marriage and the family. We will fully and ungrudgingly render to Caesar what is Caesar's. But under no circumstances will we render to Caesar what is God's."

Dec 12 Sat Our Lady of Guadalupe Conference St. Joe's 114 High St. Medford, MA with Johnnette Benkovic of EWTN.
Dec 13 Sun – Lessons and Carols at Immaculate Conception Parish, 25 Walnut St. Fitchburg, traditional Christmas carols will be interspersed with readings from the Old and New Testaments

Turning Point? Saturday Night Live actually 'scorches' Obama's spending policies.  Caution some vulgar humor towards the end of this 5 minute video.

Atheistic "Freedom from Religion" organization uses typical threats and bullying against U. Wisconsin for posting a prayer vigil notice for a former student murdered at the Ft. Hood, TX.jihad

The Bishops Conference have called the Senate bill an "enormous disappointment" and "completely unacceptable," and have urged every Catholic and conscientious citizen to speak out.
Call your Senator at 202-224-3121. Send them on Thanksgiving break with a message: "NO taxpayer funding for abortion!"

Want to have some fun this CHRISTMAS? Send the ACLU a CHRISTMAS CARD this year.  As they are working so very hard to get rid of the CHRISTMAS part of this holiday, we should all send them a nice, CHRISTIAN card to brighten up their dark, sad, little world..
Make sure it says "Merry Christmas" on it, just don't be rude or crude. (It's not the Christian way, you know.)

125 Broad Street
18th Floor
New York , NY 10004

Two tons of Christmas cards would freeze their operations because they wouldn't know if any were regular mail containing contributions. So spend 44 cents and tell the ACLU to leave Christmas alone. Also tell them that there is no such thing as a " Holiday Tree". . . It's always been called a CHRISTMAS TREE!

Thanks and God Bless,
