“I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion because it is a war against the child…” – St. Teresa of Calcutta.
Fr. Bob Conroy will be the Keynote Speaker at our Life and Hope Banquet, September 1, 2022. He was only the third priest ordained to the Missionaries of Charity Fathers, which is the male branch of Mother Teresa’s order.
The Leaven has written a beautiful article about Fr. Bob Conroy and what he has “hinted” at speaking at the banquet. “When we touch that transcendental nature of God, we are transformed and that can be in all pro-life activities,” Fr. Bob Conroy said. “That can be in serving the mother, serving the children, answering the phone, whatever it is, we are encountering God himself, and that’s Mother Teresa living completely stripped down on that day-to-day level of just remaining at the cross and serving Jesus in the most vulnerable and in this case, they don’t even have a voice. Who’s going to speak for them? If the mother won’t speak, then who?”
After last night’s disappointing election results, we want to reach out to you with a message of love and hope. We were reminded powerfully this morning in various ways of His incredible and powerful presence with us in this moment. A friend reminded me this morning, “Jesus saw this day, too, during the agony in the garden. He knew as He loved us from the cross what the outcome of today’s vote would be. And He prepared us with grace-filled and prophetic leaders so that we are ready for the next stage of this journey.”
It is undeniably true! He has prepared us every step of the way and we are prepared to welcome more women than ever, possibly from other states, and help them face their unexpected pregnancy with His Love for each of them. We are honored to be on the front lines, and we are incredibly grateful for each of you. Your prayers, your calls, and text messages, your time and even your financial support edify us and make a real life saving and life altering difference.
We are in this together! Women and their families need us now more than ever. As we strengthen our resolve today, we thank our dear Lord for each of you!
We can do this! Intentionally and prayerfully, with love, we will band together and make abortion UNTHINKABLE one life at a time.
