40 Days For Life

Dear Editor: I celebrate the Brooklyn Diocese for joining the 40 Days For Life, an internationally coordinated pro-life mobilization. Each day you can find prayers, devotions, an email subscription and podcasts for all Christians who are pro-life.

There are many opportunities for each of us to make a difference in numerous ways. Continue to write and call the governor, our Congressmen and Congresswomen, and our state senators. We can tell them that they do not represent us if they supported the Reproductive Health Act. There is no place in our state for infanticide.

Support and go see the movie “Unplanned,” as well as see the movie “Gosnell”. Show Christian unity by wearing a Madonna and Child medal or necklace daily. Donate regularly to groups that support women and their babies, such as Sisters of Life and Bridge to Life.

Support the Alive from NY day on May 4, 2019 from Times Square. A doctor will show a live 4D ultrasound of a preborn baby. This can help counter Gov. Cuomo’s passing of the late-term abortion legislation.

Let us never grow weary of speaking out everywhere for the unborn.

Dear Editor: We would like to applaud Bishop DiMarzio for his authorizing the Diocese of Brooklyn to join the International 40 Days For Life campaign during this Lenten season.

With the recent changes in New York state abortion law, pro-life efforts such as 40 Days For Life are needed more than ever.  We were pleased to read “The Editor’s Space” column (March 27) issue on the Bishop’s decision. Dominguez-Lopez gave a very good overview of the history and tactics of 40 Days For Life.

40 Days For Life has a close connection with the Brooklyn Diocese in that one of the founders and past CEO of 40 Days For Life, David Bereit, had visited with and received training from Msgr. Philip Reilly, founder of the Brooklyn Diocese’s Helpers of God’s Precious Infants.

The Helpers can still be found praying and sidewalk counseling on Saturday mornings at various locations in Brooklyn and Queens, and large prayer vigils are conducted ten months a year. The next large vigil will be held at St. Mary’s, Long Island City, on April 13, beginning with 7:30 a.m. Mass and followed by a rosary procession to Planned Parenthood. Anyone interested in peaceful pro-life activity is encouraged to attend.
