Norristown, PA 2016 Spring 40 Days for Life

From Rita Smith, M.E.V. (Missionaries of the Gospel of Life)
Campaign Director
40 Days for Life/Norristown

What a difference a week makes! The snow storm, Jonas buried Pennsylvania and many states and now we are having a melt down. The temps are in the 50's & 60's?

The next worldwide 2016 Spring 40 Days for Life campaign is now taking shape across America and around the world for those who feel called to join and lead a local campaign. The Missionaries of the Gospel of Life (M.E.V's) are sponsoring this track record of proven results to the Norristown community. It’s time to pray … discern … and, now it’s time to act! Abortion is the leading cause of death in the world, destroying the lives of more than 42 million children every year and wounding millions of women. Amidst this darkness, there is hope

Lent is a time to die to self in order to grow spiritually, 40 Days for Life offers the opportunity to do some of the most life-giving penance you may ever experience. It is an opportunity to bring the Church to the gates of hell where babies are dying and mothers are being forever wounded. Planned Parenthood is our modern day Calvary.
Are you ready to sacrifice and participate in the most historic pro-life prayer movement this country has ever experienced? 
Are you ready to pray, fast, public witness and community outreach in your community or surrounding communities in Montgomery County, where there are a total of two Planned Parenthood's.
Are you ready to be, maybe at times, mocked and ridiculed for standing for the most defenseless of our society, the unborn? 
Are you ready to be a part of something so amazing, in the saving of an unborn child and sparing the mother/father a lifetime of regret? 
Are you ready to be the only love that the unborn child may experience, if the mother does choose to abort with RU-486 medical pill? 
Are you ready to put on the armor of God, (Ephesians 6) spiritual warfare and begin an amazing lenten season of mortification and spiritual works of mercy? 
Are you ready to be a part of the Body of Christ and take this opportunity to participate in the U.S.A. pro-life history that will take down the abortion industry?
If your answer to the above, is YES! We welcome you to participate in the 2016 Spring 40 Days for Life prayer vigil in Norristown, PA at Planned Parenthood located at Powell & Wood Sts., Norristown beginning on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 10th and ending on Palm Sunday, March 20, 2016.

40 Days for Life - A Work of Mercy During the Jubilee of Mercy

During the Jubilee Year of Mercy, all of us are looking for ways to respond to the Holy Father’s invitation to live the spiritual and corporal works of mercy with renewed zeal. There is even a Plenary Indulgence attached to performing the works of mercy during the Holy Year. One great opportunity to do this is to participate in 40 Days for Life, a continuous period of prayer and witness outside of an abortion clinic in an effort to protect the lives of unborn children and extend a hand of mercy to the men and women caught in the snare of abortion. There are 40 Days for Life campaigns taking place in Norristown, West Chester and Center City Philadelphia.
