Today is day 28 of this campaign, with 12 days to go. I am happy to report that 265 babies have been saved from abortion at all the sites since the beginning of the campaign, February 18th. Never doubt the value and importance of your efforts and sacrifices for life. Do not be discouraged. God sees your actions.
We have the following events scheduled for the last 2 weeks of the campaign:
English Candlelight Vigils Fridays at 7 pm, March 20, and 27
Spanish Candlelight Vigils Saturdays at 6 pm, March 21, 28
Concluding Prayer Service on Sunday, March 29th at 3 pm.
We still need prayer warriors from 7 am to 7 pm every day. Please sign up for vigil hours on our website: https://40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/boston/
Mother Teresa once said, "Peace begins with a smile." Remember that pro-life ministry begins with treating all you come across as a child made by a loving Creator; your simple smile can be the thing that turns someone's heart to the kind, loving ways of their Father in Heaven.
Father of mercy and grace, we thank you for the gift of our children. Grant that every fiber of our being may rejoice when a new baby, our own or any else's, is born into the world. Help us to welcome them as we would welcome you, for whenever a new baby is conceived, another life to bear your image and another voice to praise and worship you, is beginning. In Christ's name we pray. Amen.
"God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes." Vatican Council II
