I have often commented that one of the most powerful pro-life activities we can undertake is to pray in front of abortion clinics. It takes the battle to the heart of darkness and exposes the light of Christ on it. So I am very pleased to see that Bishop Samuel Aquila of Fargo, North Dakota is encouraging his priests to schedule time for such activities in the coming month :
A bishop already known for his pro-life activism is taking the further step of exhorting his priests to pray outside the state’s sole abortion clinic.
“The 40 Days for Life North Dakota campaign will soon begin again, running from Sept. 22 through Oct. 31,” Bishop Samuel Aquila of Fargo wrote in a recent letter to priests. “I know what a busy time this is for you in the parishes, yet I ask that you schedule one more very important thing on your calendar: your hour of prayer outside the abortion facility. I encourage you to tell your parishioners when that hour will be so that they may join you, or pray in union with you from wherever they may be at that time.”

Let us all make an effort to go to an abortion clinic soon and pray in front of it. Also, be sure to pray for Bishop Aquila and all bishops!
