Council and Famililies stand with St. Mary in Life Chain

National Life Chain Sunday was held on Sunday, October 6, 2013. It is held on the first sunday in October each year.

On National Life Chain Sunday 2013—October 6, from 2:30 to 3:30 PM in each time zone across America and Canada—sidewalks in hundreds of cities and towns proclaimed Life Chain’s irrefutable messages, among them Abortion Kills Children, Adoption: The Loving Option, Jesus Forgives and Heals, and Abortion Hurts Women. Life Chain is devoted foremost to prayer, but wise participants understand that prayer to end abortion is not of great value before God unless accompanied by love that will battle legal child killing and defend forsaken Preborns committedly.

LIFE CHAIN is a time for prayerful self-analysis, repentance, and serious commitment to helping end abortion in our nation. Accordingly, LIFE CHAIN is not chiefly a demonstration, and its witness is not intended for the viewing public only. Instead, its first goal is to minister to its own participants—to those who call Christ their Lord and hold pro-life messages that declare abortion a grave evil that defames the name and holiness of God (Leviticus 18:21). Indeed the Church that Christ founded has drifted into cold indifference toward the sacredness of human life, and the result has been the mindless surgical killing and mutilation of over 45 million preborn Americans, plus untold millions who have fallen victim to abortive chemicals and medical neglect.

It is purposeful to note that LIFE CHAIN is church oriented and pastor focused and that the key to a successful Chain is for local pastors to educate their congregations about abortion and then lead them to the sidewalk where their Chain is to be held. Without firm pastoral support, a Life Chain will not fulfill its potential for saving lives and changing hearts.
