Assist the Mission
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy." (Mt. 5:7)
Why become a Helper?
That we might be faithful and pleasing to God by saving the physical lives of God's precious infants through the spiritual conversion of their mothers.
That we might grow closer to God by experiencing the mystery of His Cross. By denying ourselves comfort in the morning, we will better find out what Calvary is like.
That we might more clearly realize Christ's personal love for each one of us, and know the joy of having responded to His call.
That we might learn to pray, offer penances, abandon the results of our labors to God, and recognize that it is God's power and love which will overcome the evil of abortion and soften the hearts of those who participate
"Could you not watch one hour with me?" (Mt. 26:40)
"Would you spend some time with the little babies in your own neighborhood before they die? Maybe you'll even be able directly to save lives; maybe not. What's even more important: you'll be there. In a sense, it may be a way to redeem the abandonment of Jesus by His apostles when they refused to be with Him at His death. Too often we also refuse to be with Jesus for fear of the Cross, do we not?
These little ones dying today are intricately connected with the sufferings and death of Our Savior. There is a bond here that must not be overlooked. All the political action, educating, donation of funds, demonstrations, alternative work, important and necessary as these are, do not make up for an absence at the death scene. Thus, let me beg you to view your presence at the killing center in your area as the place where God wants you to be. Grab your Rosary, pick up your Bible, bring your devotionals, and go out to the Calvary not far from you - where Christ is being crucified today in your midst.
... we may not be able to save their lives, but can we not plead on their behalf? And should they die, as usually happens (God forgive us!), let us lift up our hearts to God Almighty on their behalf ... it will be the only human love they will know on this earth..."
- JOAN ANDREWS
Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, "Behold, we did not know this," does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay each man according to his work?
- Proverbs 24:11-12
