On Jan. 21, a snowy Saturday, the Holy Hour for LIFE began right after the 5 pm Mass at St. Peter’s Church in Haverstraw, NY.
People from all walks of LIFE came to pray for the protection of the most vulnerable among us — the unborn.
A beautiful singer named Carolyn was accompanied by two gifted guitarists as the music moved our souls to the depth of our very being.
Carolyn’s pin says: JESUS, PROTECT AND SAVE THE UNBORN- Carolyn recently gave birth to a baby girl.
As the service began, the altar servers processed to the altar carrying the crucifix with pastor of St. Peter’s Father Thomas Madden and Father Fredy.
Jesus would even pay for the sin of abortion on His Cross. Jesus paid in full so forgiveness, mercy, and healing could happen.
Throughout the hour of prayer there were beautiful roses on either side of the altar. The rose is the sign for the pro-life movement.
Father Madden read us Psalm 139:
“For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.”
Father Fredy prayed the Divine Praises in Spanish during Benediction.
He spoke about the need to pray for God’s protection for the unborn for God hears every prayer.
As people prayed the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary, alternating the decades between English and Spanish, you could almost hear the babies’ soft voices, as if they were joining in the PRAYER POWER!
