Hello!
DOREMI - did you get the team email about the new thread for the pro-life rosary novena?

If not, here is the link for you:

The day yesterday was great!
I was a little late. emoticon Oops.
But, when I got to the clinic, there was a great crowd already. All were holding signs saying:

* Abortion hurts women and kills babies
* Adoption: the loving option
* LIFE - the only choice

etc.

I saw the cross-Canada walkers right away - they all had white t-shirts that had bold black letters saying "PRO-LIFE" on them. And some young men were taking turns carrying their 'pro-life cross' as they passed back and forth in front of the clinic.

Some prayed the rosary, one priest went back and forth with his prayer book (he may have been baptizing the aborted babies, I've seen him do that before), others just stood and waved to cars passing by and waving their signs.

I got to speak with a young man from Saskatoon, and a young woman from Louisiana. They were such wonderful young people! So polite, energetic, and obviously so filled with the Holy Spirit!

I pray that they continue their walk with Christ, and that they continue to find support in each place they visit!

Pray for me. I am about to go to a pro-life rally to pray with our brothers and sisters in Christ outside an abortion clinic here in town.

Our counterparts who disagree with us on the abortion issue may or may not be present as well.

Hello prayer warrior !
You are amazing and I am so moved to be a part of this Novena.
July 6 sounds great! I'm with you sister.
I have to mention how grateful I am to both the Divine redeemer chaplet and the beautiful Fatima Novena(finishing July 5 with some of you all). True miracles happened everyday for my families intentions..I never had doubt but I also never held Our Lady's hand tighter through this turmoil. I thank you for your prayers for my family always. The lives of these babies need us to protect and enable their birth to take place in the eyes of all to come to fruition. We are fighting for life and the end of this horrendous culture of death! God bless you for your work here dear.
Jesus I trust in You!

When our current rosary novena ends - we end on July 5th, so we can start July 6.
How does that sound?

What do you think of 9 days of pro-life rosaries?

We can do one set of mysteries each day (Joyful, then Luminous, then Sorrowful then Glorious), and then do them again. The 9th day, we can each pick a set of mysteries to do (someone can do Joyful, someone else Luminous, etc.).

What do you think?

Baptism in the Jordan
Jesus approaches John to be baptized by him. John knows he is not worthy to even undo the thongs on Jesus' sandals, but he consents, to "fulfill all righteousness'.

Lord Jesus, as expecting parents we may feel unworthy of the life we have helped to create. Help all parents say yes, as Our Blessed Mother did, to Your request of us, and to carry out our duties as parents.


Wedding at Cana
"Do whatever He tells you." (John 2:5)

Mary admonishes the servants to do whatever Jesus tells them, and the water is changed to wine after they obey.

Heavenly Father, give all men and women considering abortion the strength to obey your will to become parents, allowing the miracle of conversion to happen in their hearts.


Proclamation of the Kingdom
"Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much." (Luke 7:47)

The sinful woman washes Jesus' feet with her tears, and dries them with her hair.

Lord Jesus, give all men and women guilty of coercing to abort, aborting, or performing abortions the resources and graces they need to seek forgiveness and heal.

Transfiguration
"And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light." (Matthew 17:2)

Jesus gave some of his apostles a glimpse of his glory and majesty to help them withstand His coming Passion and Death.

Lord Jesus, give all parents a glimpse of your love in their hearts to enable them to withstand the trials of parenthood.


Institution of the Eucharist
"If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one anotherís feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you." (John 13:14-15)

Jesus washes the apostles' feet.

Lord Jesus, help all to follow your example of loving service to others, especially those struggling with crisis pregnancies, difficult births, or parental challenges.

At Adoration last night, I was able to have a good think about it (thank you, Jesus).
This is what I have so far. But feel free to let me know what you would like to 'tweak'.

Baptism in the Jordan
I was thinking about John not feeling worthy to untie the thongs of Jesus' sandals, but that Jesus asked him to baptize Him.

How about:
Jesus approaches John to be baptized by him. John knows he is not worthy to even undo the thongs on Jesus' sandals, but he consents, to "fulfill all righteousness'.

Lord Jesus, as expecting parents we may feel unworthy of the life we have helped to create. Help all parents say yes, as Our Blessed Mother did, to Your request of us, and to carry out our duties as parents.

Wedding at Cana
Mary admonishes the servants to do whatever Jesus tells them, and the water is changed to wine after they obey.

Must go to Mass ...

Be back later ...

Hello all!
DOREMI has posted some wonderful mysteries for those wishing to pray a rosary with a pro-life theme. These can be found here:

www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes

geboard_thread.asp?board=13131x1017xR>42646736


Someone pointed out that there were no Luminous Mysteries yet, so we figured we could write some of our own.

So, using the ideas of the Luminous Mysteries

* Baptism in the Jordan
* Wedding at Cana
* Proclamation of the Kingdom
* Transfiguration
* Institution of the Eucharist

we need to think of some pro-life slants to go with them.
