PROMOTING LIFE

PEOPLE PRAYING AT CROSS

DAY OF PENANCE & PRAYER

You may not live in Colorado, but you are still being called upon to participate in a day of penance and prayer by the Catholic bishops of Colorado in responsive to the eye-opening investigative undercover videos concerning Planned Parenthood and the selling of aborted baby organs.

"We call on all people of good will in Colorado and beyond to pray that those involved in research and medicine will fix their sights on recognizing the sacredness of life and refrain from putting human life at the service of science. A society can only be considered socially just if it protects the most vulnerable among us."

Please mark this day in your calendar and pray in solidarity with the Catholic faithful in Colorado.



 

@ SYMBOL

SYMBOL FOR LIFE

A new pro-life initiative is underway at the heart of it is the @ symbol. It is the creation of Tyler Blanski who was looking for a fresh, positive way to spread the pro-life message. Blanski says writer's block (he's an author) led him to the idea. One day, as he sat at his keyboard, he noticed the @ symbol was perfect way to illustrate life. He said the "a" represents the beginning, and it is cradled as if in the womb. He decided to put in in a Marian blue box and use the symbol to create a Facebook page in the hopes of drawing others to life. If you have Facebook, you can even get the symbol to overlap your profile pic. Read his article entitled: "Every Story Has a Beginning" on the website, The Catholic Gentleman. Then scroll down for the details.


PRIEST FOR LIFE FR. PAVONE

TO: PARISHIONERS

FROM: FR. FRANK PAVONE, NATIONAL DIR.

Priests for Life has helped expose to the public that Planned Parenthood, in violation of the law, is selling the body parts of aborted babies. You can help bring this to an end. Please go to the website BabyBodyParts.com, where you can see the videos that have revealed this, can join a prayer campaign about it, and can take action so that Congress can stop your tax dollars from funding these activities. All parishioners are asked to avoid giving any support whatsoever to Planned Parenthood. Thank you for standing with us in the fight!


ELDERLY ON SOFA

RESPECTING LIFE MEANS… honoring the dignity of the human person from conception to natural death and in our culture, the elderly are marginalized because they don't fit the youth-centered demographic. You can help thwart that ideology, by celebrating the elderly on National Senior Citizen's Day, Friday, Aug. 21. Consider visiting your elderly relatives,


Prayer of the Elderly

Dear Lord, as my life declines and my energies decrease, more than ever hold me by Your Power, that I may not offend You, but daily increase in Your Love. Give me strength to work in Your Service til the last day of my life. Help me to ever have an increasing dread of venial sin or whatever would cause the slightest withdrawal of Your Love. All day long and at night keep me close to Your Heart; and should I die, ere the morning breaks, may I go rejoicing in that vision of Your entrancing beauty, never to be separated from You. Amen.
