24 Hour Vigil Ends- WE BELIEVE!!!
12 noon Good Friday, March 29, 2013 to 12 Noon Saturday, March 30, 2013
The Granholm Family (Mary, Elizabeth and Ken) are praying on this gorgeous day at the 10 am hour
Every hour on the hour for 24 hours people have come to pray and bear witness that Planned Parenthood destroys the precious gift of human life~
This is from Elizabeth and she wrote in what was always mud during our 40 Days for LIFE that she was there. Finally, dry enough to send a powerful message.
This crucifix is a powerful reminder of the love of Our Heavenly Father has for us~
He sent his only Son to suffer and die so that we would be forgiven for whatever we would do that hurts our relationship with God~
Our Lady of Guadalupe was present in three places during the 11 am hour of Our Lady of Guadalupe Rosarians~
Through her intercession, Rockland will be P.P. Free~
The three Rosaries to her are extremely powerful~
The following are words from Gerald who coordinated the White Plains first ever 40 Days for LIFE:
On this Good Friday, Christians around the world commemorate the suffering and death of Jesus Christ. For those of us Christians who are in the pro-life movement, it is an appropriate time to reflect on the similarities between Jesus Christ and the unborn babies killed by abortion. Though innocent, Jesus was condemned to death by the power of the state. The agent of the state, Pontius Pilate, had the power to save Jesus but instead washed his hands of all responsibility and delivered Jesus up to death. Every day, innocent children in the womb are condemned to die by abortion. Like Pilate, our government does not fulfill its primary responsibility of protecting innocent lives. As Christ's flesh was torn by the whips and nails of his executioners, so the bodies of babies in the womb are torn by the instruments of the abortionists. Jerusalem, which had welcomed Jesus as a triumphant king only days earlier, turned quickly into a hostile environment where Jesus met his death. Likewise, the mother's womb, which should be a place of warmth and nourishment for the pre-born child, becomes a killing chamber where the victim of abortion meets her death.
Thankfully, Jesus' story does not end with his death on Good Friday. Christians rest assured in the knowledge that Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday. Without the resurrection, Jesus' death would have been in vain. Jesus died and rose for all people, Jews and Gentiles, Christians and non-Christians, born and unborn alike. As Christian pro-lifers, we have the great privilege and responsibility of spreading the message of Jesus' victory over death to every segment of our society. We do this every time we protest the legality of abortion, offer support to women in crisis pregnancies or help post-abortive parents to find forgiveness and healing. This Easter, we rejoice in the hope that the resurrection of Jesus offers to those waiting to be born and those tempted to turn to abortion.
