View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

40 Days For Life - Fall Campaign

I received word that we will be doing another 40 Days for Life campaign this Fall. The national dates are September 23 to November 1, so I assume those will be the local dates.

Last fall's campaign in Rochester saved lives.

There's an informational meeting Tuesday, August 4 at 6:30 p.m. at the Focus Pregnancy Help Center at 86 University Ave.

The campaign is prayerful and peaceful (unless pro-choicers show up - they tend to be noisy and use crude language). You sign up for shifts at your convenience with the hope that we will have enough praying people to keep a 24-hour presence outside Planned Parenthood.

It does not involve shouting, confronting, shoving dead baby pictures in people's faces. It's about prayer.

It would be great if we could have even more people involved this time around. If you are Rochester-area reader of this blog, please consider joining us even for just one shift.
