Dreams of more participation

To the editor:

I too have a dream. My dream is not well known like Martin Luther King’s. Yet I believe many others share it.

I dream that one day, many Catholics from every parish, many of the clergy, and anyone else who shares our belief in the right to life, will take part in the 40 days for life (September 24 thru November 2, 2008). This will include prayer, fasting, and a peaceful vigil outside the local Planned Parenthood at 114 University Avenue. Over 170 cities across America will take part in it.

In the Bible, 2 Chronicles, it says “If my people who are called by my names, humble themselves, pray, seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land”.

We also welcome all the women and men who are silent no more. They who have been personally touched by abortion and know its pain.

Then maybe our dream will come true and 3,000 to 3,600 babies a day won’t die in America.
