16 Sep Psalm 100:3 (Seeing God’s Love)
* 40 Days for Life campaign (24 Sep to 2 Nov): http://www.40daysforlife.com/. Please consider signing up to pray an hour in front your local abortion mill. Each parish in C. Springs has signed up for one or more days (St. Peter has Sat, 4 Oct). Bishop Sheridan will lead a Mass in front of the abortion mill at 9:15 AM, Sat, 4 Oct (rosary at 7:30 AM). I’m sure several Protestant churches are involved again with this ecumenical campaign.
* Steve Castle shared this “Last Chance — For Life” article: http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=28517. The article is about the impact of the Presidential election on overturning Roe vs Wade.

Through Christ Our Lord,
* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, thereby changing us & helping others. Wayne Watson lyrics, “When God’s people pray, there is hope reborn, there is sin forgiven, and miracles you can’t explain await!” “If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead & see Him.”* Defend the unborn: ‘Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die’ (Prov 24:11). ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you’ (Jer 1:5). ‘It is a great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish’ Blessed Mother Teresa. Prayer to End Abortion. Ask Blessed Margaret of Castello for her prayers to end abortion.* Evangelization: Let’s make room for non-believers (be a friend, make a friend, lead friend to Christ) and perpetual re-evangelization of self and those near us, by way of daily prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of selfless love, mercy, and service.Let’s joyfully live out the Good News and gladly tell others about it (Mark 16:15)!
