08 Jun John 17:13 (Silent No More!)
“I speak this in the world so that they may share My joy completely.” John 17:13 (full readings)
Pat’s Reflections: Most people spoke up after hearing about the mother who apparently killed her 2 yr old child by putting duct tape on her mouth. Many people came together to search six times for even one more survivor amongst the devastation from the Joplin tornado. Most people speak up whenever they see something unsafe that could cost even one life. Why don’t most people speak up about the daily horror of thousands of unborn children being aborted daily? Sin damages, intertwines and paralyzes. However, if we speak up, Christ can untangle and heal us (Sacrament of Reconciliation). Speaking up also warns others about the lies of abortion…guardrails to prevent others from going over the abortion cliff.
* Speak up and sing out this healing song Your Great Name: “Lost are saved; find their way; at the sound of Your great name. All condemned; feel no shame, at the sound of Your great name. Every fear; has no place; at the sound of Your great name. The enemy; he has to leave; at the sound of Your great name. All the weak; find their strength; at the sound of Your great name. Hungry souls; receive grace; at the sound of Your great name. The fatherless; they find their rest; at the sound of Your great name. Sick are healed; and the dead are raised; at the sound of Your great name. Redeemer, My Healer, Lord Almighty. My savior, Defender, You are My King!“

Through Christ Our Lord,
Phil 4:13* Save Unborn (& family): Abortion reality (images)…#1 death cause (23% pregnancies). Prov 24:11 & Jer 1:5. “A great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish.” Mother Teresa.
* Evangelize:Make room for unbelievers & re-evangelization of self, by way of prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of love (service/sacrifice/mercy). Matt 28:19.
* Pray/Fast: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. Fast from things that take your eyes off Jesus. Those who pray together stay together, and close to God!
