40 days of prayer for life

In a comment, Fr Ben reminded me that the Forty Days of prayer and fasting for life will begin on Sept. 23rd, the Feast of St. Pio of Pietelcina.

The following is taken from the website:

"40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion in America.

The mission of the campaign is to bring together the body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 day campaign of prayer, fasting, and peaceful activism, with the purpose of repentance, to seek God’s favor to turn hearts and minds from a culture of death to a culture of life, thus bringing an end to abortion in America."

As Jesus once said about a certain demon, "This kind can only be driven out by prayer and fasting."

Hello, I just came across your blog. I am a spiritual seeker, trying to find my path (I want to know God but have no idea where to start or how to believe, I know it sounds crazy!). So although I'm not a Catholic, I can't help but appreciate the beauty of your faith:-). I have actually considered going to a Catholic church in my area. I would like to take Catechist classes as well. I, too believe we have a culture of death more than a culture of life in America. Take the rate of crime here, and the fact that there are some 32 (average) gun-related deaths here EVERYDAY when England only has about 23 per YEAR! I am draw to the beauty of the Catholic faith, and the peace Christ invokes. I truly believe Love, Compassion, and Peace are much needed in this world. God bless you, the nuns-all the work you do for good! I also in particular love the Fransican covents-as I am an avid animal lover. You can't forget God's other creations:-). I really enjoyed reading your blog, I've now saved it under my Favorites list on my computer:-).
