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 - having an effect!

40 Days for Life only began on Wednesday - and already we have reports of a life and perhaps a soul having been saved.

In St. Louis on the first day, a couple that had gone into the abortion clinic came out and told one of the sidewalk counselors that they had changed their minds and were going to keep the baby.

Meanwhile, in Bakersfield, California, an abortion clinic worker resigned and walked out to one of the 40 Days participants to tell her what she had done. She got a hug.

Who knows how many other people changed their minds as a result of this campaign, and the ongoing efforts of so many pro-lifers.

The power of prayer!
