I hope people in metro Detroit will join Bishop Hanchon and others this coming Saturday. It is Divine Mercy Saturday - a good time to remember the mercy and compassion needed to fight for life in a culture of death.
These are prayer vigils, not protests. There are no signs; only the banner of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the Crucifix are seen at these vigils. The aim is to pray, not just for the mother, but for those pushing her to abort her child, the abortionist, and staff. Helpers of God's Precious Infants has considerable success in persuading mothers to follow through with their pregnancies. They never condemn, or force women to take materials, some of which encourage them to visit crisis pregnancy centers that can help them with most of their needs.
This gives me an opportunity to point out that Imago Dei Crisis Pregnancy Center that was on 7 Mile Rd. in Detroit is now in Warren on Schoenherr Rd. between Common and 13 Mile Rd. They take donations and always welcome volunteers. Spread the word about their new location.
