40 Days for Life

40 Days for Life

Today our Parish helped pray through the hours of the 40 Days for Life, along with St. Charles Borromeo Parish and Our Lady of Divine Providence Parish. Talk about an amazing day. These kids were sitting here singing contemporary hymns after praying their Rosary.


I also met the directors of the Louisiana Right to Life Federation, and the Women’s New Life Center, as well as the director of 40 Days for Life in Dallas, over an impromptu lunch. And what an honor it was to be able to visit with these well spoken, focused young adults who are articulately pro-life and Catholic. What a blessing!

It was such a power lunch; we secretly planned out the next several years in our clandestine plot to take over the world for the pro-life cause.

40 Days for Life is a truly inspirational and prayerful program. Please check it out in your area and, if you’re not involved, please consider it next year; and the year after that, and the year after that, et cetera.

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
your eyes saw my unformed body.

All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

The Rev. Kenneth Allen
