21 Feb Mark 9:35-37 (Receive the Child)
“Then he sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, ‘If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.’ Taking a child he placed it in their midst, and putting his arms around it he said to them, ‘Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me; and whoever receives me, receives not me but the One who sent me.'” ~ Mark 9:35-37 (full readings)
Faith Challenge: Pause right now and pray Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s Prayer of Spiritual Adoption: “Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.” In your adopting of this unknown, unborn child you have also loved Jesus.

* 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 (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.
