To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances;
to seek Him, the greatest adventure;
to find Him, the greatest human achievement.

Christmas Novena to End Abortion (Please join us!)

Hello, all!

A pro-life friend of mine has started a 'project' gathering as many people together to pray a Christmas novena for an end to abortion. It would begin on the 16th. Currently the goal is for 500 novenas, with a potential goal of 1000 if we get enough people interested.

He describes the novena intention thus:

Let’s pray for all expectant mothers that they will respect and cherish the life they carry like Mary did, and for fathers that they may support the mother as St. Joseph supported Mary.

For those who don't know what a novena is, it is nine days set aside for a special or particular prayer intention. (the word 'novena' coming from the Latin for nine) Here is a little history behind the custom.

He has set up an email list on the website you can subscribe to so you can get daily reminders to pray the novena in your inbox. :)

There is also a Facebook event for it you can join. :)

Blessings to all, please pass the word around! And please sign up! It won't be very hard to do, trust me, and it's for a good cause!
