Prayer and Fasting for Life Tomorrow!

 Appeal from the Good Counsel Network

On Saturday 17th November, the Vigil of the Dedication of the Basilica of SS. Peter & Paul, please pray and fast for the end of abortion and euthanasia.

“And the people of Ninevah believed in God; they proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least…God saw their efforts to renounce their evil ways. And God relented about the disaster which He had threatened to bring on them, and He did not bring it.” (Jonah 3:5,10)

Fasting

Fast from all food except bread and water for the day

Or

Fast from a particular food or luxury, e.g. chocolate, alcohol, cigarettes, TV.

Fast from whatever you can given your state of health etc, but make sure it is something that involves a sacrifice to yourself.

Prayer

We are asking people to say a Rosary (or an extra Rosary if you say it daily already).

You could also offer an extra effort such as going to Mass (or an extra Mass) on the day, or going to Adoration. You can even pray before a closed tabernacle if Adoration is not available near you.

Abortions down by two-thirds in Russia

Since President Putin became President of Russia in 2000, the number of abortions has dropped by 63.5% and the number of Russians steadfastly opposed to abortion has tripled from 12% to 35%.

There are still a massive 800,000 induced abortions in Russia every year but developing policies of pro-life education and family support aim at making Russia abortion free within the next generation.

National Day of Prayer and Fasting 28/09/18

A National Day of Prayer and Fasting has been called for, on the Vigil of the Feast of St Michael the Archangel.

“Please pray and fast for the end of abortion and euthanasia and for the removal of the ‘buffer zone’ around the abortion centre in Ealing and that no others will be introduced. Please invite others to join this and share it as well.

Civil Rights March against Sinn Fein Hypocrites

Pro-life families from County Tyrone, in Ireland, made their voices and their presence felt at the Civil Rights commemoration march held on Saturday 18th August.

Fifty-years ago the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association marched from Coalisland to Dungannon to highlight and protest against anti-Catholic discrimination in the north-east of Ireland, particularly over social housing allocation.

On Saturday hundreds followed the original march route in commemoration, with a large number of civil rights marchers taking the opportunity to protest against Sinn Fein and its abortion policy. A Sinn Fein representative recently made it known that the party hopes that the British government will do its murderous work for them by introducing abortion into the north-east of Ireland.

Outraged civil rights protesters spent the afternoon drowning out rally speeches from Sinn Fein representatives with chants of ‘The North says No’, and ‘Sinn Fein hypocrites, now they’re working for the Brits’!
