Fight Like Heaven

 

 

Bishop Boyea has recently issued a pastoral letter addressing the seriousness of the abortion ballot initiative. Every person in made in God’s image and likeness. The proposed initiative seeks to eliminate dozens of Michigan law such as:

-laws that prohibit partial-birth abortion

-informed medical consent laws

-24-hour waiting periods

-taxpayer funded abortion

-laws that require abortion facilities to be licensed and inspected by the State of Michigan

-laws that prosecute anyone who injures or kills a woman during an abortion

-and laws that protect the conscience rights of persons who refuse to participate in abortion such as doctors and nurses.

Click here to read Bishop Earl Boyea’s Pastoral letter in which he asks us to fight like heaven for the “most extreme abortion proposal this country has ever witnessed.”

How then do we respond to those who fight like hell?” asked Bishop Boyea, “Simple: We fight like heaven. What does that entail? First: We have to employ the three great spiritual weapons of the Christian life: Prayer, fasting and almsgiving.”

“Second comes action,” he added, “The most important frontline in this battle for life and love, however, will be the local parish. It will be you. If each of us does what we can – including prayer, sacrifice and action – we will overcome this attack on life. It’s as dramatic and as simple as that.”

“We have less than two months before voting on November 8th. Time is short. Our task is great. The Lord, however, always provides. Therefore, let us work cheerfully and unstintingly knowing that His grace is sufficient.” -Bishop Earl Boyea
