Prayers that arose from the March for Life
Those of you who do read this blog will remember of my view on the Women who marched for life and how it effected me. I saw it as a celebration of Womanhood celebrating the fact that unlike us mere men they could and many will take part a working part in the act of creation. Even I add they actually are a working part of the holy act of God's creation as in their womb the soul is added to the body. The act of ensoulment as Tertullian called it. The joyful faces and the complete abandonment in that joy they shared was so obvious to me. I thank God for His instructions to my soul on what I was observing. I felt such pity but truly admired the heroines who stood with banner proclaiming I aborted and saw the sorrow written in their face. God has forgiven many of them who truly were seized with penitence.
Now I watch the supernumeraries present the men, Fathers, brothers and sons who were there and it entered into my mind Paul's admonition in First Corinthians, "Protect your maidens!" But what of those who have no man who stand for them in prayer and practice. Separated perhaps by the act the woman, our sisters, mothers and daughters were acting against by their positive demonstration of delight in their womanhood whom as God told us, "He made them".
May I tell you of help I gave in a funny way for one woman and then for a group. I have often done things that are off the worldly wall and been reviled sneered and laughed at, too bad.
Once on belief net I corresponded with a woman who wanted to talk to me but was frightened to give me her number and a woman from Massachusetts stepped in and gave me hers and we worked out the problem
In the Course of the conversation it was stated the woman had not been to confession for some years and she agreed she would. The next time she spoke she could not find a priest locally in Richmond Hill to help her. One would not, another (it was the start of lent) stood her and her children in line with others and said now confess your sins. I wrote to Cardinal Ambrosiac and asked what kind of outfit was he running and a priest phoned her. Before she went she told me she had so many sins it was hard to keep them in her mind. I suggested write them on paper. She did. After confession we talked and she asked what should she do with the sheets on which her sins were remembered. Burn them was the obvious answer. Now comes the gist of the matter, her and her husband were so elated at her practicing her catholicity the whole family were to go out and celebrate. I am from what happened not sure they did get out that evening. They burnt the few sheets of paper in their barbecue. They flamed so high and so long they feared their house would catch fire. Talk about a holocaust for a penitent mind.
I once was a correspondent with a group of women who had a telephone prayer group of some kind. They were in a way as off the wall as myself. One night one phoned and said while praying they were making the ejaculation to the Sacred Heart and it turned as I listened into an incantation to some demonic deity. I had been writing it down in a steno notepad. I gave her heck and hung up, took the paper, soaked it in Holy Water and set fire to it in the kitchen sink. It flared up right away. a large flame burnt for long moment or two and I flushed it down the sink. Two holcausts, two sacrifices of sin to God.
For those still with me here is the point. If you are a man and you know of an unfortunate woman who has aborted write her name on a piece of paper set fire to it and ask God for mercy and interior peace for her as it burns. Too holy to do it, too stupid for words. Not my problem but you might just lack charity.
Print this and ask your local parish priest, "Is this worth doing?" Remember the first woman she did and it surely was as God says I will forgive a humbled and contrite heart.
