No abortions?

So I now live about a block and a half away from an abortion mill in Laurel, MD. So naturally I went to pray there this morning. I knew that there would be some pro-lifers especially because the bulletin of the local parish said they'd be there at 9. That was great. I knew that 9 was when they started doing abortions, and that would give me ample time after an 8:00 Mass.

So I headed out to the mill. And lo-and-behold. No abortions. This really stumped the regular pray-ers there. We even saw the doctor drive up, smoke a cigarette, get back in his car, and then leave. He didn't even go inside. Kinda weird? I don't know, but hopefully they weren't doing them later today and trying to trick us. Guess we'll find out next week.

In Christ and St. Dominic.


Paul said...

So yesterday I heard one of the weirdest arguments for legal abortion I have ever heard. The speaker stated that abortion needed to be legal so that we can, in the end, have the choice to say no. This act of saying no would thus show that we have moved beyond it as a society. She was relating this by an explanation of Germany's laws that anything remotely related to the Nazis(symbols, ways of thinking) is illegal. Her argument was that, since anything related to the Nazis is illegal the society never really moved past it on their own. They have only moved past it since it was forced upon them. I for one would love to be no laws having to specifically state abortion is wrong (because then we could know that everyone truly believed that it was wrong). Abortion just seems like one of those things that should be accepted by all as being wrong (like murder...oh wait, same thing). So in the grand scheme of things, the approach MoE is taking will, in the long run, be the best way to overcome current society. So after my long statement of saying the obvious, keep up the good work, and hopefully we will see a few of your out here in Cincinnati at some point.

Who we are?

Every summer we, the Missionaries of the Eucharist, are walking from Lewiston, Maine to Washington, DC to proclaim the beauty of the Catholic faith to everyone we meet, specifically through the Theology of the Body.

Conversion begins in our own hearts,which is why prayer is so important to our ministry. For this reason, everyday of our ten week walk begins with daily Mass. By receiving Christ in the Eucharist, we are given the grace to be the Love of Christ not only to those in our community but also to those we meet in the streets.

We walk throughout the day to be a witness of love. We are grounded in prayer-we pray with our lips, our hearts, and our bodies. In walking an average of twenty-five miles per day, we offer our fatigue as a gift of love to Christ and the people we meet. Our walking is both sacrifice and prayer.
