Below is a note written by Sr. Lucy Marie of the Sisters of Life. The event she mentions was advertised here.
As Sr. Lucy explains, witnessing makes a difference one life at a time.
Dear Friends who Witness for Life,
Many of you were among the approx 70 who participated with us in our First Helpers Prayer Vigil this past September. The prayer and witness of all of you was so powerful. Was it really – do we ever know?
One young man who was present with us that day provided prayer support at another clinic elsewhere in our area this past Saturday. I was at home preparing to sit down to breakfast and we received a call from this young man that a woman had turned around at a clinic. He brought the young woman over. Another sister and I spent the morning meeting with her and giving her examples of all of the various resources and people that were available to assist her in her pregnancy. She left our convent having a new perspective and a new sense of life.
She kept telling us – “this was my second time coming to the clinic and I just didn’t want to do it. I read the brochure… but what really changed my mind was that young man who approached me and told me there was another way. He never condemned me and he was just so nice….I am so glad he was there… he was so nice.”
It make a difference to witness to life – this woman’s life is forever changed and she and her child are eternally grateful to each of you.
Next prayer witness and vigil – Sat, Oct 4th – Mass at 8am – St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral.
God Bless You.
