10 Feb Mark 7:37 (Use Your Voice)
They were exceedingly astonished and they said, “He has done all things well. He makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.” ~ Mark 7:37 (full readings)
Rosemary’s Reflections: Have you seen the news lately? With all the new pro-life issues receiving media coverage (Komen and Planned Parenthood, Obama’s birth control mandate, etc.), it’s getting people talking…on both sides. People spend so much time reading and posting on social networking sites, they could make their own countries. Comments made on Facebook and Twitter have now become powerful enough to change the mind of Komen to defund Planned Parenthood. With the tides shifting daily and unborn lives on the line, now is NOT the time to stay silent. Don’t think just because you are one person, you can’t make a difference. One raindrop is all it takes to make a ripple. Spread the pro-life message any way you can, as much as you can!
Sr. Francelle’s Devotion: Love
Feast Day: St. Scholastica
* 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!
* Save Unborn (& family): Abortion reality (images)…#1 death cause (22% 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). Mt 28:19.
