And so it begins....

On the eve of our annual pro life prayer vigil, I come across stories on Life Site News that make my blood run cold.
Like this quote from Amnesty International: Claiming that it is "shameful" that Latin Americans continue to prohibit the killing of unborn children, AI added that "the penalization of abortion denies to pregnant women and children the medical attention they need.
At last they are calling abortion what it is- the killing of unborn children- not "fetal tissue" but THE KILLING OF CHILDREN. To me this means that it is now socially acceptable to call it what it is, they have such strong backing that they are not afraid to throw it in our faces that we are killing CHILDREN with every abortion. And since when did medical attention for children include their murder!
Then there is this story which is sickening: Women who gave birth to live healthy babies, killed them, were convicted of infanticide, and then freed after the pro abortion groups claimed that these women had been imprisoned for "abortion." So it is now legal to murder healthy babies in Mexico?
You know that the next step is legal killing of older babies. And elderly people. And anyone else who is "inconvenient". Chaos is with us now. This is mankind's darkest hour.

October is the month of the Holy Rosary. Please, pray it every day, and include in your intentions an end to abortion and the overthrow of the pro abortion agenda. Pray for women to choose to give life to their children, not to take their life. Pray for men too, to take the responsibility of fatherhood seriously, and not encourage abortion because it might inconvenience them to be a father. Pray for strong families, and pray for our Church who shows us the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Here is the October prayer of St. Joseph, recommended to be prayed after the Rosary throughout October:

To thee, O blessed Joseph, do we have recourse in our tribulation, and having implored the help of thy thrice-holy Spouse, we confidently invoke thy patronage also.
By that charity wherewith thou wast united to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God, and by that fatherly affection wherewith thou didst embrace the Child Jesus, we beseech thee and we humbly pray that thou wouldst look graciously upon the inheritance which Jesus Christ has purchased by His Blood, and assist us in our needs by thy power and strength.
Most watchful guardian of the Holy Family, protect the chosen people of Jesus Christ. Keep far from us, most loving father, all blight of error and corruption. Mercifully assist us from Heaven, most mighty defender,in this our conflict with the powers of darkness; and even as of old thou didst rescue the Child Jesus from the supreme peril of His life, so now defend God's holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity. Keep us, one and all under thy continual protection, that, supported by thine example and thine assistance, we may be able to live a holy life, die a happy death, and come at last to the possession of everlasting blessedness in Heaven. Amen.
