The 40 Days for Life campaign is coming September 27 through November 5, 2017. People of the Diocese of Kalamazoo, let us come together to pray and show our solidarity in the desire to stop abortions, particularly in Kalamazoo. There are no words that can adequately describe the evil that is being done every time an unborn child of God is destroyed through abortion. Dorothy Day stated that “the reason for our existence is to praise God, to love him, and to serve him, and we can do this only by loving our brothers. All men are brothers. This is the great truth that makes us realize God. Love is the reason for our existence. It is what we all live for.” One way to serve God, and to show him our love, is to come together during the 40 Days for Life campaign to pray for an end to the senseless killing of unborn children of God. Please sign up for 1 hour during this campaign to pray on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood at 4201 W. Michigan Ave., Kalamazoo. Many women have changed their minds of having an abortion just by seeing people outside of Planned Parenthood standing in all forms of weather and praying. If you can, consistently praying 1 hour each week during the campaign shows commitment to God and the desire to end abortion. However, any time you have to give would be greatly appreciated; God knows what is in your heart. Make a difference and stand with us in this peaceful demonstration of care for the unborn. To sign up, go to www.40daysforlife.com/kalamazoo. Or, call Mary Jeske at 269-459-1234 and she would be happy to sign you up for the time you can give. Thank You.
