Dear Prayer Warrior,
If you click on 'download' you'll see a bigger picture of what 2 girls did to us pro lifers, on Holy Thursday. They walked down the sidewalk, where Rob was standing & pretended to be going into Planned Parenthood. They walked to the PP door & then they came around the bushes & started to throw eggs at Martha, Adolf & myself, who were standing there.
As they were running to get away they passed by Rob, the one girl threw an egg at him but it bounced off his jacket & hit the sidewalk. He chased them to their van which was parked on University Ave. up the street & there was a child in it to his dismay. He memorized the license plate # & I called the police. The officer then went to her house, to confront her. He asked her if she was on University Ave. this afternoon & had thrown eggs at some people there on the sidewalk? She answered "yes" & was arrested. Because she had a child in the house she was not taken downtown but will receive an appearance ticket to appear in court, in the near future, with a charge of Harassment in the 2nd. degree. It will be determined, at that time, if it will be a judge or jury decision. We will have to go to court, in the near future, too. I am more concerned about the child, who was left alone in the van, then what happened to me. I was able to feel a little what the Lord felt when He suffered humiliation, for my sins, on the way to the Cross.
I also thanked St. Veronica for wiping the precious Face of Jesus from all the blood, spit, sweat & tears, that He endured for me. It was an humbling experience & it couldn't have happened on a better day than Holy Thursday. I am not writing this email for any self pity but for you to pray for this girl & her child & her girlfriend, who was busy throwing eggs too. She would not give the officer her name. They must both be in a lot of pain to have done this to strangers. I got the egg thrown at me with her full force & it hit me on the right side of my head, near my eye.
The good Lord & Mother Mary & St. Michael were watching over us, for Martha & Adolf had just finished the Rosary & I had just said the St. Michael Prayer & earlier Martha had sprinkled, on the sidewalk, some Holy Salt, which is a Sacramental of the Church. Please again pray for these two girls, & the little girl who was left alone in the van, while the mother was committing this crime & for us & our continuous safety, especially during the summer months. Thank you. God has protected Rob & I for the past 15 years that we've been out there on the front lines, near Planned Parenthood, & everyone else who has joined us there too. Needless to say these girls were NOT in Planned Parenthood but were driving by when they saw us out there & set their evil plan in motion to egg us. They must have just been to the grocery store?? I might never eat another egg again :(
Happy & Blessed Easter season to you. Thank you again for your prayers & love for our ministries, both on the sidewalk & at Focus.
God bless you always,
Mary @ Focus
