I Agree. Let's End it Here.
Three local bloggers have issued a joint statement agreeing that since Roe began in Dallas, then we need to make a sincere, concentrated effort to end it here.

Below is the pertinent information needed to participate in this effort.

"On each First Friday for the next eleven months, we will fast and pray before the Blessed Sacrament for an end to abortion. This will culminate at the annual Dallas March for Life in January of 2008, where we will join our bishop and the faithful of this city in marching to the courthouse where Roe was originally argued. We ask anyone reading these words to join us. Fast and pray with us each First Friday, no matter how far removed you are from Dallas. Spend some time in Eucharistic adoration, and implore Christ to end this curse. We especially ask other Dallas area bloggers and residents to join us, at least in spirit. If you would rather not fast, then pray for those of us that do. We will not win this battle in the courts. We will not win this battle in the media. We will not win this battle in any earthly way. We will only win through prayer, fasting, and devotion to Christ. It started here. Let it end here.

Jesus, we trust in you."

Laura H. - ... and if not ..
The Catholic Pro-Life Committee is happy to add our name to the joint statement and to encourage all the faithful to commit to a period of prayer and fasting to overturn Roe.

The 2008 Dallas Rally and March for Life will take place on Saturday, January 19th, 2008 at the Cathedral Guadalupe in downtown Dallas.

In particular, let us make this worthy cause the focus of our annual Lenten devotions. You can begin by meditating on the words of Msgr. Mark Seitz, Pastor of St. Rita Catholic Church in Dallas.
