40 Days for Life

I'm a part of the 40 Days for Life Campaign taking place in my city. I'm just going to quote straight from their website to tell you about it:

This fall, 89 cities in 33 states across the nation will unite for a unique pro-life campaign called 40 Days for Life -- an intensive effort designed to raise awareness, save lives, bring healing, and prepare America for the beginning of the end of abortion.

The campaign will be conducted simultaneously in all locations from September 26 - November 4.

There are three components to 40 Days for Life...

  • Prayer and Fasting

  • Peaceful Vigil

  • Community Outreach

Read more about it on their website. Perhaps there is a city near you that could use your support!

I'll be doing a lot of prayer (since I'm REALLY not a people person). Today is the start of a Novena to Blessed Teresa of Calcutta for this effort. Please join me in this Novena :)
"Don't search for Jesus in far lands; He is not there. He is close to you; He is in you."

Ask for the grace of an intimate knowledge of Jesus

Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, you allowed the thirsting love of Jesus on the Cross to become a living flame within you, and so became the light of His love to all. Obtain from the Heart of Jesus blessings on this 40 Days for Life and an end to abortion in this country. Teach me to allow Jesus to penetrate and possess my whole being so completely that my life, too, may radiate His light and love to others. Amen.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, Cause of Our Joy, pray for us.

Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, pray for us.
