Dear Friends of Life:
In these days of pandemic lock down and isolation, we may have a tendency to feel alone, lost and even abandoned, no different then Jesus’ disciples likely felt on the day he was crucified. On Easter Sunday, we are reborn and those faithful to the Lord’s teachings, and especially those who are indifferent or even hostile to God’s creation, now have the same chance at salvation; a salvation that comes along with a change of mind and heart.
That is our mission in the pro-life movement; to work zealously to change the minds and hearts of those who are indifferent or hostile towards God’s creation. While we are not yet actively joining together at a pro-life Mass, meeting or vigil event, we have the time to ask God’s help through prayer, for courage, strength and perseverance so that we may confidently emerge from our isolation to prepare for our next step forward.
The next big event on our calendar is the March for Life in Ottawa which has been cancelled for 2020. The Virtual March for Life will take place as an on-line event featuring a week of on-line programming with the movement’s most recognized speakers (see http://www.marchforlife.ca). The messaging tools are out there to deliver scientific, philosophical, ethical and moral arguments in support of pro-life. Seek them out!
Let us use the days ahead to spread the Right to Life message. Believe it our not, our challenge is less daunting than that of the Apostles’, whose charge was to spread the good news of the Resurrection and life in a hostile Roman world.
In our upcoming newsletter you will be updated on key events and activities over the past 6 months as well as upcoming events in 2020. While these are strange times for us, in Jesus’ day, war, hatred, unclean living and disease were very prevalent . The question we really need to ask ourselves is; “how can I make a difference?”.
Watch out for the following events
Right to Life Mississauga & Area – 2020 Annual General Meeting Notice (For Fiscal Year 2019 – Date pending lifting of pandemic lock down restrictions)
After almost two years of hard work, Kevin Dunn’s 2nd documentary on euthanasia is ready for viewing. Fatal Flaws features interviews with leaders of the euthanasia lobby and with people who have heart wrenching personal experiences with euthanasia and assisted suicide. By juxtaposing the position of the euthanasia lobby with those individuals who have actually been affected by it, the fatal flaws associated with its legalization are readily identifiable.
Right to Life Mississauga & Area has purchased several copies to lend out for viewing in Churches, moms groups or just with friends and family. Please call or email us to borrow a DVD and help expose the truth.
