Even though it doesn’t seem like it for much of the United States, spring IS just around the corner. The Lent season is upon us as well, beginning tomorrow as Christians prepare for the celebration of Easter on April 20. The first day of Lent, Ash Wednesday, also marks the beginning of the spring campaign of 40 Days for Life: March 5 – April 13. If you’re looking for a way to “march on” after your experience at the March for Life, or a regional March for Life event, we encourage you to participate in this powerful movement.
If you’re not familiar with it, 40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigils, and community outreach. You can learn more and find a local campaign HERE.
The 40 Days for Life movement is having a powerful impact around the country, because of faithful people who care deeply for the sanctity of life and desire to see an end to abortion in America – and around the world. The fall campaign saw at least 476 babies saved from abortion!
As the March for Life President, Jeanne Monahan, so eloquently encouraged us at the March for Life rally, “No sacrifice is too great for this cause.” If you are a praying person, take a leap of faith and sign up for a local 40 Days for Life campaign. However, if it’s not the right fit for you, there are so many other ways you can continue to “march on” for life – check out these great suggestions, and let us know how it goes! We all have different gifts and talents, but we’re all united by one passion – ending abortion, saving lives, and building a culture of life!
