European Voice of the Unborn Children: "Protect Our Life"!

EuroProLife represents meanwhile 20 European nations

The situation:

Within the framework of the second Worldwide Prayer Conference for Life in Cracow/Poland on 13th/14th October 2007, the representatives of 12 European Nations agreed upon the establishment of a Christian, interdenominational network, in order to give voice to the unborn children in Europe. As the only continent, Europe has a birth rate of only 1.5 which greatly differs from the least rate of 2.1 indispensable to maintain a nation’s population.

Our objectives:

1. We concentrate our energies in order to organize and support public prayer events for Life in Europe.

2. We want to stop the flood of destruction by peaceful means: We intend to give testimony to the public by devout prayer.

3. We express our pain regarding the innocent killed children and their wounded parents by our prayer during sour processions and mourning ceremonies.

4. We pray in the same loving attitude as did Mother Mary and the apostle John under the cross.

5. We do not pray against somebody or something. We pray for love, light and life.

6. We pray for all the persons involved in the abortion process (doctors, politicians etc.) in order to flash the light of love in their hearts for the innocent defenceless babies.

7. Euro Pro Life is a Christian interdenominational network, which unites the different pro life organisations of European countries in common prayer for life.

I have just returned from a pilgrimage to The Holy Land. On our last Sunday there we had Mass in the Catholic Church in Jericho. The PP of that parish helped with the distribution of Holy Communion.
After the Mass our guide told us that that priest normally has a congregation of about four.
Now, how can a congregation of four maintain a church and a parish priest?
The answer is of course that this is impossible.
Almost every week there is an advert in our Catholic newspaper (The Record), from Aid to the Church in Need, for us to contribute at least $15 to go to the Church in The Holy Land and, if we do, we will receive a crucifix made of olive wood from Bethlehem. I acted promptly on my return and $15 is too little.
