Make the Pro-Life Stations of the Cross in Glendale on Good Friday, March 21

Our Lady of Refuge Chapter, Shield of Roses, is a group of wonderful Rosary-praying pro-life sidewalk counselors. For years they have been saving so many babies' lives and helping so many new moms and dads make ends meet.

This Lent they once again invite you, me and everyone to join them and Columban Father Thomas Cusack at their 24th annual GOOD FRIDAY STATIONS OF THE CROSS at 7 p.m., March 21, at the Glendale abortion center, 372 W. Arden Avenue (between Central and Pacific Avenues).

OLRC says: Families and children are welcome. Please bring flashlights but no candles. For more info., please call Geri at 818-242-3912. They also say this:

"Each time we stand outside an abortion facility, we're at the scene of the cross. St. John, St. Mary Magdalene, and the Blessed Mother all stood at the foot of the cross affirming Christ's dignity as He silently suffered and died.

"Even though they could not remove Our Lord from the cross nor relieve His temporal suffering, they remained steadfast, offering Him the dignity that others had tried to strip from Him.

"Witnessing at an abortion facility serves the same purpose. Babies are being led to their deaths. We try to save them; but if that fails, our presence witnesses to the dignity that others try to strip from them."

The 13th Station pictured above is from the Stations in the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi, 610 Vallejo Street, San Francisco.

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee, because by Thy holy Cross Thou hast redeemed the world. Amen.
