Action plan for pro-lifers

Okay, we pro-lifers survived the 1992 and 1996 elections; now we have to survive the 2008 election. We have to, for the sake of the preborn babies and their moms and dads.

First off, we have to redouble our prayers, especially Holy Mass and the Rosary. We have to praise God for His gift of life, intercede for the babies and ask for graces and strength to keep building the Culture of Life and to confound and outdo and overcome the culture of death.

Second, we have to remind ourselves that we pro-lifers never go away. Come rack or ruin, we will be around, and we will keep saving babies and helping their moms.

Third, we have to look for all the positives that are all around us. Recent polls show that more Americans than ever want major restrictions on aborting babies. Pro-life groups exist on 443 (and probably many more) college campuses, and young Americans are increasingly pro-life. More young priests are pro-life than older ones. 110 or more bishops issued or signed pro-life statements in recent months. Priests for Life and other pro-life groups are already promising to forge ahead with pro-life initiatives.

There are lots more steps to think of. But in the meantime, let's each and all get busy and let's be happy warriors for the little preborn babies and their moms.

"Bad news pours in from all sides; thanks be to God." (a paraphrase) -- St. Francis Xavier, S.J.

Jesus, mercy; Mary, help!

Our Lady, Help of Christians, Refuge of Sinners, Comforter of the Afflicted, Cause of our Joy, pray for us!

I like St. Francis Xavier's attitude :) More bad news just means more praying and penance is needed. Thank you, God, for giving us St. Francis Xavier. Thank you, blogger, for this wonderful blog.

Dear Nick and Anonymous 5:51 a.m.,

Thank you for your kind words! Let's keep thanking God in all things and let's keep encouraging each other and all our pro-life friends. And let's pray for all pro-aborts to see the light, too.

God bless you!
