POPE FRANCIS, VIA VATICAN SECRETARIAT OF STATE
“The Holy Father greatly appreciates the dedicated work that you and everyone involved in 40 Days for Life are engaged in to promote respect for the lives of all unborn children. His Holiness assures you of his prayerful support for you, your colleagues and all those whose prayer, fasting and sacrifices are saving countless lives and giving glory to God.”
Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortions in America, has an office in the strip mall near our prayer site on Perlman Drive in Spring Valley. Which is exactly why we’re there.
But right across the street, there’s another building. That’s where the Care-Net Pregnancy Center of Rockland has its office — a place where women with unplanned and unwanted pregancies can come for honest information, where they can feel safe and share how they feel, a haven where there is caring and help in bringing their baby to term.
“Saving countless lives and giving glory to God” — that’s what goes on at Care-Net. We pray for many things at the 40 Days for Life, and blessings for our friends at Care-Net are one of them.
The Rockland 40 Days for Life takes place every day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Perlman Drive in Spring Valley. It is peaceful and prayerful. It continues overnight from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel of St. Gregory Barbarigo Church in Garnerville.
