Our good Archbishop George Niederauer, in a letter sent out to the priests of the Archdiocese encouraging them to attend the "40 Days for Life" vigil, called the areas around the abortion businesses "the Golgotha of our time."
Just yesterday morning I posted on how, at the "40 Days for Life Vigil," we had seen a lady coming out of the abortion business who was very unsteady.
Today I joined our brothers and sisters at the vigil across from the Planned Parenthood again. As we prayed an ambulance pulled up, sirens screaming. Here it is:
The paramedics went in, and after about 10 minutes, came out with an Asian lady of about 30 on a gurney. I chose not to take a picture of that. Poor thing! We prayed the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy for her.
So, in my entire life, I've now spent about 4 hours in prayer across from an abortion business, and in two of those hours women have come out of there in bad shape: one having trouble walking, the other on a gurney.
Safe, legal, and rare? Well, it's legal.
In other news from the vigil: two 6o year-old ladies (or women, as my mom would say) quite bitterly and foully cursed us out, but I guess that was balanced by a Muslim guy who invited us to the mosque.
I told him, "Hey, I go to Church!"
He said "It's all the same!"
Well, it isn't really, but I liked him.
