In preparation for the upcoming Wisconsin Right to Life reception, several parish families met at All Saints Catholic Church on Tuesday morning to place 500 pink and blue crosses in the ground in memory of babies who have been aborted since Roe v. Wade in 1973. Each cross symbolizes 100,000 abortions. Like Father says, “Do the math”. That’s a staggering 50,000,000 since abortion on demand became law.
These young parish families came together on behalf of the Catholic community to make a visible reflection of our faith and pro-life beliefs. You can learn how to get involved by attending the Wisconsin Right to Life Reception this evening, Thursday June 20that All Saints Catholic Church in Berlin. Hear international speaker Sean O’Hare’s message articulating the dignity and sacredness of human life. “I truly believe the future leaders of the pro-life movement will come through college students. I don’t think there’s any better investment of time”. ~ Sean O’Hare
The truth is, 500 – even 50,0000,000 crosses cannot atone for the loss of innocent lives. Nevertheless, in the upcoming weeks we use the crosses to share the message with all who drive past All Saints on South Hwy 49. We feel touching even one young man or woman contemplating abortion is worth the effort! Our prayer is when they see the crosses, they will know that many care for them and their child in the womb… that their hope will be renewed… that God will give them courage to bring life into the world, and to know there are other options! The Catholic community is praying for YOU and for LIFE!
We express our gratitude and appreciation to Mr. Doug Dewhurst for cutting the individual blue and pink crosses, and to Steve Ceman who crafted the metal stakes for each cross to stand on. We are blessed by your talents, and thank you for using them for Christ and his Church.
Mary, Mother of God – you who bore the Son of the Most High in your womb, pray for us!
