Scottish Sisters Push Walk for Life West Coast!

From the Walk for Life West Coast blog comes this post about the Sisters of the Gospel of Life in Scotland. The sisters were commenting on this year's new Walk for Life West Coast video:

"This is from the website of the Sisters of the Gospel of Life, in Scotland. According to LifeSiteNews they are the first new order of nuns founded in Scotland in 150 years!

'The second biggest pro-life walk in the U.S. (after the March for Life in D.C) is coming up on the 26th January 2013.

You may think a walk for life isn’t relevant for you here in the U.K. Why would we watch or talk about it when we are so far away from all that is happening in the U.S.? Here’s a couple of points to think about;

it gives you a great, warm feeling inside to see so many other people being positive about the situation we are in regarding the wanton destruction of unborn babies - we are not alone in feeling this is the most important cause!

it is encouraging to us across the water to see what is possible with organisation and commitment to the cause

lastly it can galvanise us to keep going even when we feel despair, frustration and pain for all those babies killed by abortion and their mothers.

Let’s do all we can to promote this video and who knows maybe one day we will be promoting our own massive walk for life in the U.K.? Miracles do happen you know.'

God bless the good sisters! Let us pray for them and support their work–there is a donation button at the provided links."

This strikes me as an example of God creating good from bad. There had not been a new order of Catholic nuns in Scotland for 150 years. Abortion in Scotland was then legalized. That horrific situation resulted in the Lord God raising up prophets. Indeed, God bless the good sisters!
