FFV Pro-Life Rosary Crusade 📿


Dear family:

   More than half of the Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States have agreed on a draft that reviews the constitutionality of Roe v Way as it was written in 1973. The conclusive verdict is to be handed down later this spring or early summer.

   As Franciscans of Life, this review has captured our attention.  More importantly, we have become aware that people who object to this review have gathered to protest in front of the Justices’ homes, without regard for the safety of the families who live inside.  As citizens, we have the right to protest and communicate our demands to the government in peaceful and safe demonstrations.  There is, however, no moral justification for the dangers arising when angry mobs gather, especially before the homes of private citizens.  Spouses, children, grandchildren, seniors living in the homes are not public figures.  They have the right to a quiet and peaceful life as the rest of us. Disturbance of the peace and instilling fear in private citizens is immoral and – as we have stated above – dangerous to the collective safety.

    I’m saying all of this because, as Franciscans of Life, we know that human life is sacred from conception to natural death.  Life is the supernatural act of God in favor of humanity, a humanity that His Son, Jesus Christ, would assume at a precise moment in history, society, and ethnicity. 

   We believe that the Second Person of the Holy Trinity became man, developed in the womb of a human mother, was born of her, and was unjustly executed on the cross.  Taking on our human nature side by side with His divine nature, and being executed, was an act of God’s love for humanity. 

   Our Country fought a civil war for many reasons, the most important being the belief that no human being can own another human being – not even one’s mother.  We have no ownership of the person in the womb, thus killing an unborn baby is claiming ownership and authority that is not ours. Abortion is a false belief that the preborn child has less rights than a slave, and that the child in the womb is as much the property of the mother as a lung.

   The Franciscans of Life are inviting everyone we know to join our Rosary Crusade, to pray that Congress and state governments will pass laws that protect the right to life of every person, from conception to natural death. 

   We invite you, your family, and friends to pray the Holy Rosary every Saturday, starting this Saturday, which the Church reserves for Our Heavenly Mother, until the Saturday before the Feast of the Assumption (August 13).

   You don’t have to go to the parish church.  You can pray from your home, car, or any quiet place.  Just pray.  The Rosary is the most powerful private prayer in our armory. Popes have called it “scourge of the devil,” “treasure of graces,” “heavenly instrument,” “glory of the Church”.

We encourage you to log your prayers at www.franciscansoflife.com/rosary

Fraternally in the Child Jesus,

The Franciscans of Life
