A Day of Prayer and Fasting

Tomorrow marks the anniversary of the Roe Vs. Wade decision making abortion legal in the United States. Date of the Roe v. Wade decision: January 22, 1973.

Psalm 139 "..I knew YOU before I formed you in your mothers womb.."

From our homily last Sunday, "When do you become you? According to Psalm 139, you are you even before you were formed in your mothers womb and within the womb a miracle is allowed to take place. The seed which was once part of a man is joined with an egg which was once part of a woman and an entirely NEW human is created. No longer the man or the woman, but a whole new person with his or her own DNA. All this new little boy or girls needs now is nurishment and a safe place to grow which is the same thing we all need."

Life is an evolutionary process and begins at conception with the division of one cell into two.

We have been asked by the Church to spend tomorrow fasting and praying for an end to abortion. May we pray for women contemplating abortion, woman suffering the regret of abortion, and for the little children whose lives were cut short by abortion. May we also pray and fight to ensure the Freedom of Choice Act is not passed.
