Life Chain — A Prayer for Life

On Oct. 2, Respect Life Sunday, the 19th annual Life Chain will be held at the intersection of Route 59 and Middletown Road in Nanuet — the crossroads of Rockland County — from 2 pm to 3:30 pm.

This peaceful, prayerful event is very simple. People of all ages and faiths stand together (some sit) and pray in their own way that hearts will change, bringing an end to abortion in our land. Each person holds a pro-life sign. You can get one there or bring your own.

Thousands of cars pass through this intersection during the Life Chain. There is no better way for the pro-life community of Rockland to remind our fellow citizens that abortion takes the lives of thousands of our unborn brothers and sisters every day and that “The Natural Choice is LIfe!”

If this is important to you, please find a way to spend some time at the Life Chain. Remember, the English philosopher Edmund Burke said, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” Bring your children. Seeing their parents stand up for what they believe in will be a lesson they’ll remember all their lives.

Join in solidarity in the prayer for life — and believe that with God, all things are possible. We hope to see you there Sunday, Oct. 2.
