On the pro-life front....

Things are developing so rapidly on the pro-life front, that it is very difficult for me to keep up with from a blogging perspective.  Do click on the "twitter bird" in my sidebar and follow my feed daily as it contains quick links to hot stories.  I try to update it daily, sometimes several times daily. I am going to recommend that you follow certain sources who are keeping the fast-paced tabs on what is going on here in the US, and elsewhere. 

The Diocese of Arlington is calling for a day of prayer and fasting on Monday, March 15th, and other Catholics are free to join in this effort.  I would also like to invite our non-Catholic brothers and sisters to also join in prayer and fasting.  Here, in part, is what Bishop Loverde wrote (I recommend reading it in full):

Catholic teaching tells us that our support for the dignity of life includes access to affordable health care. This support, however, cannot come at the expense of the respect for life at all stages, from natural conception to natural death.

As negotiations that are now underway could lead to further Congressional action very soon, in accord with Canon 1244, paragraph 2, I invite you to take part in a day of prayer and fasting on Monday, March 15 for protecting the life, dignity, health and conscience rights of every human person in any legislation that Congress considers. I also invite Catholics to pray and fast for this intention beyond March 15.

Last, but not least, is the Helpers of God's Precious Infants first prayer vigil which will take place on on April 10, 2010 - Divine Mercy Saturday. It will be led by Msgr. Robert McClory, Moderator of the Curia for the Archdiocese of Detroit (click to enlarge).

The back of the flyer (below) shows photos from the last vigil, led by His Excellency, Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron. See my extensive photopost, with slideshow.
