It is that time of year when we mourn the 44 year old legalized culture of death in this country. Leila has posted some thoughts on this matter, namely that
"the remedy for the great pain and evil we are suffering as a nation is this sacred covenant given by God, on which all society is based, for the very sake of the child. It’s God’s plan. There is no other plan."
Please do go and read her post if you haven't already. The rampant breakdown of the family and abandonment of God's plan is the cause of so much sorrow and evil in our culture today.
And secondly, please note that a 54 Day Rosary Novena begins tomorrow that will end on the vigil of the feast of St. Joseph, patron of fathers and of the domestic church- the family. Chari and Willa have posted some information on this novena, and you can sign up to receive daily reminders to pray. The novena consists of praying a five decade rosary in petition for 27 days (three novenas), followed by 27 days of praying in thanksgiving. We will be praying and asking St. Joseph's intercession especially for husbands and fathers, marriages and the family.
I'm sure you know of marriages in dire need of prayer and healing. Please consider joining in this rosary novena to pray for them.
Note the picture up top is of Eliza praying the rosary by herself. When you ask her to pray for someone, she gets right on it.
