"I attended the 40 Days for Life rally at the Capitol tonight. Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director for Priests for Life gave a tremendously inspirational talk on abortion and very clearly told us what we all need to do to end the slaughter of babies. Our faithful sister, Mary Tom gave an incredible testimony of her lonely effort to pray several times a week in front of Planned Parenthood. Why is she out there three times a week by herself? We should all be there with her. God commanded us to take dominion of the earth and all its creatures. That means doing something with your faith. We cannot just ask… God makes it happen as we work with Him. It’s not too late to get involved with this year’s campaign which runs from September 23 to November 1."
