Hello Out There! I hope you all felt God's grace and love during Holy Week!
It was a very busy but wonderful week for us. Jim and I went to the Holy Thursday
Mass, the Good Friday Service and the Easter Vigil. Each night was so special.
I loved it all, the scriptures, homilies, music, atmosphere and the smell of incense
are just a few of the memorable blessings of Holy Week. Receiving the Eucharist
during communion and then going to Eucharistic Adoration after the Holy Thursday
Mass was such a blessing it brought tears to my eyes. The Good Friday Service
is always a very emotional and sobering experience. When we walked into the
Cathedral Sanctuary it was dimly lit and all the statues were covered, the Tabernacle
doors were open and it was so quiet, the reality of Jesus dying on the cross just hits
you. There is no opening hymn because the service starts right where it left off from
Holy Thursday. The Easter Vigil begins in the courtyard where the Easter Candle is
lit from the flames of the fire and then we process into the sanctuary and everyone's
candles are then lit. The music is angelic and the readings are powerful. I was blessed
by being asked to read the 6th reading.  (Baruch 3:9-15, 32-4:4) I loved reading the
emotional verses of scripture from the Prophet Baruch. The people who have been
taking the RCIA classes received their sacraments during the Vigil. Some received
all three sacraments;
Baptism, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation.
Others received their First Holy Communion and Confirmation. There were a few
that had been baptized and had made their First Holy Communion but had never been
confirmed, so they received their Confirmation.
The Easter Vigil always brings back wonderful memories for me because I received
my First Holy Communion and was confirmed in 1987 in the very same sanctuary,
The Cathedral Church of the Sacred Heart.
The Easter Vigil is a very long Mass, about 3 1/2 hours, and it is an incredible, peace-
filled, emotionally moving experience.
Easter Sunday was a beautiful, He is risen, is risen, Alleluia day!
I put a spiral sliced ham in the oven, made a pistachio pudding, pineapple, cool whip
salad also known as "the green stuff" and put it in the fridge. Our center piece was
rice krispie treats shaped as nests filled with green colored coconut and jelly beans.
I put the nests in the middle of my grandma's old depression glass platter and placed
colored green coconut grass, whopper eggs and chicken peeps all around the nests. I
had soaked a pot of pinto beans the night before and they were cooking on top of the
stove. Jim was busy cleaning up the yard for the Easter Egg hunt and he also helped
clean up the house. I popped a casserole dish of red potatoes in the oven and
pulled the frozen rolls from the freezer. My daughter and daughter-in-law brought
the desserts and other sides.
We had three stages for this special day;
1. Say grace and eat lunch
2. Hide and hunt Easter eggs
3. Birthday Party - Our youngest grandchild turned 1 year old on Easter Sunday!
She had a great day!
It was about 7:00 p.m. by the time everyone had left. A super great day and we
were super tired!
Easter Monday began with our usual early morning hour at the Adoration Chapel,
a great way to start the week!
I have to go and fix some supper now but I just had to write this post and say hello to
y'all. I'll write more later.
I'm going to close with the scripture that is in my Living Faith Devotional:
And it happened that while they were conversing and debating, Jesus
himself drew near and walked with them, but their eyes were prevented
from recognizing him. Luke 24:15-16
Open our eyes Lord, we want to see you walking with us!
                                                              Bye for now,

Hello Out There! I started this blog two years ago today! I wasn't even on Face
Book yet, but I had so much I wanted to say. A lot has changed over the last two
years, including the ache in my heart to share the pro-life message, it has grown
stronger. When I started my blog I had eight grandchildren and now I am blessed
to have ten! My wonderful husband, Jim and I have been married almost 33 years
now. Four, 40 Days for Life campaigns have been held in the courtyard at my
parish since I began writing posts. Oh, I am on Face Book now, and
I'm sure I drive people crazy with all my pro-life, pro-family posts, but I have to
follow my heart!
Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read  my blog. I pray that my posts
touch your hearts, make you smile, and maybe even laugh!
The following is a flash back from the past:

Tuesday September 16, 2014
Hello out there! It's a beautiful, overcast day here in San Angelo, TX. We were blessed
with rain overnight, we are always thankful for the rain out here! I just got home
from helping out with the Sack Lunch Ministry, our parish, Sacred Heart Cathedral provides
for the homeless and other people in need. Our parish is in the downtown area and we give
out sack lunches Monday - Friday from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm. We fed a lot of people
today, we gave out over 80 sack lunches. You never know how many people will stop
by, we usually hand out between 40 -80 lunches a day. In the summer, we hand out
more because kids are home from school. Everyone is always so appreciative. I only
help out twice a month, some of the other volunteers are there almost every day.
After we cleaned up and locked the doors I went over to the parish office and visited
with the secretary about the details for the kick-off rally we'll have next Wednesday
evening for the 40 Days for Life Campaign. I bought two candles and walked over
to the sanctuary. I love being in the sanctuary during the day when no one else is in
there. There is no way to describe the peace I feel when I kneel down to pray. It's so
quiet in there, light comes through the stained glass windows and it's beautiful. I look
up at the huge crucifix hanging on the wall behind the altar, a reminder that my Jesus
died on the cross for all of our sins. I walked down the side isle towards the back where
the shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe is, I was going to light my candles and say a
prayer, but I noticed that all the candle holders were already full. I smiled and sat my
candles on the floor and knelt down on the kneeler. When I saw all those candles
burning it was a visual image to me of faith. Every person who lit a candle and knelt
down and asked Mother Mary to pray for their special need, who lifted up their
prayer to God, what a beautiful sign of faith. I prayed for everyone who lit a candle,
I prayed for my family and then I softly sang the Hail Mary so overcome with emotion,
and the peace I felt at that moment. God is always with us, sometimes we need to step out
and away from all the noise in today's world to feel His presence. I'm so thankful
that I took the time to spend a few quiet minutes alone with God and was able to
witness the faith of His prayerful people.
I brought my candles home with me, they'll be lit later on, and every time I pass by
and see the flicker of the light, a prayer of peace for all of you, whether near or far
will be on lips and in my heart.
                                                God bless you all, Sharla

"Lead me Lord lead me Lord by the light of truth, to seek and to find the narrow way,
be my way be my truth be my life my Lord, and lead me Lord today."

Good Morning Out There! The courtyard has been so full of life this week!
Every day in the courtyard brings a different kind of blessing. Monday night, there
were people from five different parishes praying for an end to abortion in the court-
yard. The Knights of Columbus Council from the Olfen, Rowena, Ballinger and
Miles area drove into town to pray the pro-life rosary and then headed back to
where they have their meetings. It probably took them 35 minutes or so to drive in
and I really appreciate their devotion and effort! (A couple of their wives were
with them too!)
Members of the St. Philomena Rosary group from St. Mary's and a married couple
from Sacred Heart were all praying in the courtyard. It was wonderful to see so
many people praying at once.
Tuesday morning I went to the courtyard and spent a couple of hours. My friend and
co-coordinator, Candi, was still there when I showed up. She arrives early and sets
everything up and stays to pray her daily devotions. We always have a quick visit
and sometimes not so quick before she leaves! We both agree about how special
the prayers in the courtyard are and the blessings of peace we receive.
My daughter and her three girls (3 of my granddaughters) came to pray. The girls
and I went inside to visit everyone at The Sack Lunch Ministry and then walked
over to the Cathedral to say a prayer while their mom was praying in the courtyard.
Then the girls drew pictures with the sidewalk chalk. The oldest was also busy
helping me with the two younger ones! They also said some prayers! My daughter
was praying in one area, another lady was praying across from her and the girls were
out in the middle. I was sitting on a bench visiting with a man who had picked up a
lunch and wanted some information about Mass times. I grabbed one of the daily
devotionals we had on the table and gave it to him. We walked over to the church
and went into the vestibule, it had been awhile since he had been inside a Catholic
church and he was very moved. I gave him a bulletin that lists the Mass schedule.
He was very thankful and seemed a bit happier when he left.
Wednesday was another beautiful day in the courtyard. The weather was perfect! The
sun was shining, there was a very slight breeze and it was just a gorgeous day! Little
sparrows and dove were flying in and out of the trees, hop hopping on the concrete,
and tweet tweeting their joyful songs! Several people stopped by the picnic table
where we have the sign-in sheet, the prayer books, rosaries, daily devotions and
brochures. They asked questions and visited and took some of the brochures and
devotions with them. It was one of those days I could have stayed all day! I left
about 2:30 p.m. and went to the grocery store. I was buying groceries for a dinner
I was going to cook that evening for some friends who were coming over. My
husband and I are sponsors for a couple who want to get married in the church.
We have known this young couple for years. We shared a wonderful meal and
discussed marriage preparation and talked about our own marriage. It was a
wonderful evening and we were very happy to spend time with this sweet couple.
They know that we are here for them and we will meet with them again.
I always say - a wedding is a day, a marriage is a life-time and if you want to have
good marriage, it takes work! Communication is very important, you can't read
each other's minds, so talk! God must be number one in your marriage, pray
together, pray for each other and attend Mass as a family. Pray when you wake
up, thank the Lord for a new day and ask for His help throughout the day.
Pray before meals, always thank God for the food you have to eat and ask Him
to be with those who don't. Pray before you go to sleep! Hold hands, hug, laugh
and be quick to forgive! Put down the phones! Talk to each other and make sure
your friends are on the same path you are! Remember to say thank you and please
and your welcome to each other.
Love is patient, love is kind! Marriage is awesome!
I'll have to tell y'all about the Chrism Mass and the blessings in the courtyard from
Thursday later!
Have a super great day, a day full of blessings!
                                                           Bye for now, Sharla

Hello Out There! It is an absolutely gorgeous day! I try to always be thankful and
to remember that compared to many others, I have no reason to ever complain
about anything!
After Mass last night Jim gave me some money asked me to buy (3) candles for
us to bring home. I bought the candles, our priest blessed them for me and then I
stopped in the courtyard, said a quick prayer and gathered up the prayer books and
40 Days for Life sign-in sheet.
On the way home I asked Jim who we were going to light the candles for
and lift up with extra prayers this week. Jim had read the Sunday paper earlier
in the day, I had not read it yet. He told me about the chemical warfare that was
going on and the people who were wounded and killed.
I just felt sick at my stomach as he told me the news. He said one candle is for the
innocent people in the countries where the chemical warfare broke out, the second
candle is for some dear friends who are going through a lot and the third candle is
for our grandchildren.
Right before we went to bed Jim lit all three candles. We put them on  top of the
stove, a safe place for them to burn at night. We stood there in the kitchen next to
the stove and prayed. As we prayed, I began to cry, I just felt so helpless about
what was going on in the other countries. When we finished praying we talked
about how important it is to pray for others. My heart felt a little lighter as we
went to bed. When the alarm went off at 4:00 a.m. this morning I put the pillow
over my head. Jim was the first one up, he always is, and when he was almost
ready  he said, "Sharla, it's time to get up, we have to go to adoration and we don't
need to be in a hurry."
I stuck one of my legs out of the covers and thought to myself, "Maybe I'll just sit
this one out" and then I said to myself, "That is exactly what the devil wants me to
do!" I threw back the covers and quickly got ready. Jim brought me a cup of coffee,
he knows me so well! We arrived at the Adoration Chapel right on time. We spent
a very peaceful and prayerful hour and then we headed home. On the way home I
told Jim how I almost stayed in bed this morning and he said in a laughingly
shocked voice, "You need to say three Our Fathers for that!" I laughed and said that
no, I did not, because I did not stay in bed, I went to adoration! And I'm sure glad I
did! Going to the Adoration Chapel on Monday mornings is a great way to start the
week off right!
Back to the reality of what is going on in the world right now - we need to pray, and
we need to pray hard for families all across the world. Last week I posted the
Divine Mercy Chaplet on my blog, a wonderful prayer for the whole world.
Today I'm going to post a prayer I wrote last May. A prayer for everyone - a prayer
for you. May God bless you and keep you safe wherever you are:

I pray that your day is full of blessings.
If you are sick, I pray that you will get well.
If you have lost a loved one, I pray that you will be comforted.

If you are anxious, I pray that a feeling of peace will wash over you.
If you are lonely, I pray that someone  will reach out to you, I pray that you
will know that even though I may not know you,  I really do care.
If you are struggling financially, I pray that God will send you what you need.
If you are struggling with addiction, I pray that God will give you strength
and courage to give up whatever is holding you hostage.

If you are in a crisis pregnancy, I pray that you will be directed to the path of life,
and guided to all the help that is available for you and your baby.
If you are a caregiver, I pray that you will get the rest you need, and know that it
is ok to take time for yourself.
Dear God, I pray for peace all across the whole world. I pray for peace in every

country. I pray for those who seek refuge.
I pray for those who are hungry and thirsty. I pray for the homeless and the lonely.
I lift all the intentions I've listed above to You, God our Father.
I pray for anyone and  everyone who might be suffering or going through any
of the things I've written  about.
Please God, show us how to take care of each other, to love one another and
help us to be discerning in all that we do. Thank you for today, please guide us and
help us to live the way you want us to. Please keep us safe and help us to look to
You, and not the world for direction and answers.

 In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.

In July 2014, about 4 months after I started my blog, I noticed that people from
other countries were reading some of my posts. The following is the post I wrote
back then and it still applies today:
Life is precious, and not only do I pray for the unborn, I pray for those in war torn
countries. Starting my blog has been an amazing experience for me. I'm able to see
the different countries that people are from who read my posts. It doesn't specify cities,
but it does list how many people from each country have viewed my blog. I'm humbled
that anyone reads my blog.
Because of all the fighting/wars that are going on, I worry about the people in many of
the countries I see come up on my blog stat section. I hope that they are ok. I just want
them to know that I am praying for them and for their families. I don't know their
names, I don't know what they look like, but for some reason, they read my blog.
Each day I don't see their country listed, I place my hand over the map where it
should be colored in and I pray for them. Each day I do see their country listed,
I place my hand over the map and pray for them.
 There  are so many wars going on in our world right now, so much violence.

Dear God, please watch over all these countries where war has broken out.
Please God, protect the innocent people and their families.
Please God, open their government's eyes to the devastation that war is causing.
Please God, guide their leaders to a peaceful solution.
Thank you God, for our many blessings,
please be with all those who are in need.
Please God, show us, guide us to how we can best help others.
You created us all, please help us to love our neighbor,
care for one another, and to pray for those who seek a better life.
 In Jesus Name I pray Dear Lord, Amen.

As Catholics, we pray The Divine Mercy Chaplet. This prayer is for the whole world.
It is really beautiful when we sing this Chaplet. (I'm singing this as I'm typing)
The refrain goes like this:
For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
If you listen to the Catholic radio station 91.5 FM, they sing the Divine Mercy Chaplet
at 3:00 pm each day.
To pray The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy:
(It is easier to keep up with if you have a rosary, but if you don't,
 you can count on your fingers.)
1. Begin with the Sign of the Cross, Pray (1) Our Father, (1) Hail Mary
and The Apostles Creed.
2. Prayer - (Pray this 1 time) Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood,
Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ,
in atonement for ours sins and those of the whole world.   
3. Pray this refrain 10 times:
  For the sake of His sorrowful passion,
 have mercy on us and on the whole world.
You repeat steps (2) & (3) for a total of (5) times.
4. Conclude with (3 times)
  Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One,
 have mercy on us and on the whole world.
5. The sign of the cross and Amen.
It is a beautiful, peaceful prayer. I find myself humming or singing it a lot.
I also pray it if I wake up during the night. 
May God Bless you and keep you safe wherever you are, wherever you live.
May God help us to love and care for one another.
                                                 Bye for now, Sharla


Good Morning Out There! I want to share this scripture with you before I dash out
the door!
"Truly you have formed my inmost being;
you knit me in my mother's womb.
I give you thanks that I am fearfully, wonderfully made;
wonderful are your works.
My soul also you knew full well;
nor was my frame unknown to you
When I was made in secret,
when I was fashioned in the depths of the earth."
                          Psalm 139:13-15

I hope you all have a good. Always remember that we are -
"fearfully and wonderfully made"
God loves us all so much. Pray without ceasing - Blessings to you all.

                                                             Bye for now, Sharla

Hello Out There! I just wanted to share something that really touched my heart
this morning when I was looking at the stat section of my blog:
When I started this blog almost two years ago, I wasn't even on FB yet. I just had so
much that was in my heart and on my mind that I wanted to say and to share.
I hoped this blog would help people, I wanted my posts to somehow make a difference.
This morning I noticed that people from other countries have been reading my blog.
Besides the United States, people from Russia, Germany, Ukraine and Syria, Italy,
Romania, Australia, Poland, Sweden and Mexico have read some of my posts and I am
amazed and very humbled.
It just brought tears to my eyes. I pray that my posts bring a smile to your face, maybe
tears to your eyes, even make you laugh sometimes. Maybe my posts help some of you
look at things in a different way.  I pray that my posts touch your hearts. Thank you for
taking the time to include my blog in your lives. I will keep you and your families and
your countries in my prayers. God bless you all.
I noticed something else that grabbed my heart this morning. My daughter wrote a
comment on the previous post I wrote, and once again the tears started.
I always pray that God will help me be a light for my family, a good example, and to
teach them to stand up for what you believe in. Someday I hope that my grandchildren
will look back on these blog posts and laugh at all our fun family gatherings. I pray they
will remember how very much I love them. I pray that they see how my faith in God
leads me in everything that I do.
I'm feeling very sentimental today, I'm sure you have realized that by now.
Tomorrow or in the next couple of days I'm sure something crazy will happen and I will
be writing another one of my "Country song, redneck posts" so until then............
may your day be full of blessings and your heart full of song.

                                                                                    Bye for now, Sharla


Good Morning Out There! It is a cool, overcast morning. We have been blessed with
rain the last couple of days and we are so thankful! I just finished up some book work
and I'm going to get ready so that I can head up to the courtyard. I looked up the 40
Days for Life daily devotion for today (day 30) and I want to share part of it with you.
There is a devotion for each day and they all include an intention, scripture, reflection
and a prayer. I will give you the link at the end of my blog post in case you would like
to read the devotions for each day.
The scripture reading for today is:
And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary that the babe leaped
in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Then she spoke out with
a loud voice and said,
"Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!
 But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
 For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears,
the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
—Luke 1:41-44

The reflection is from Father Frank Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life

Jesus not only loves unborn children — He was one himself!
Think about this for a moment.
We often hear people speak of a pregnant mother by saying,
"She’s expecting a child."
Now if one is expecting a package, the package is not yet there.
As reflected in our verse for today, however, this is not the case with the mother.
Her gift is already there.
The pregnant woman, a mother already, does not have a child "on the way,"
but has a child, already present and in full possession of his or her human rights,
 starting with the right to life.

I think that is such a beautiful reflection, and so true! Once you find out you are
pregnant, the planning begins!

I wish I had more time to write today, but I must go. Please pray for a conversion
of hearts, please pray that all people will see the unborn as the precious babies
they are, not tissue, but babies - gifts from God.

Hello Out There! It is almost 11:00 p.m. on Sunday night and I am wide awake! Jim
and I have to be at the Adoration Chapel early tomorrow morning and I should already
be asleep! Oh well, since I'm not, I will use my time wisely and tell y'all what has been
going on during the 40 Days for Life in the courtyard! It is hard to believe that there are
only two weeks left in this campaign. I just sent out another invite to everyone on Face
Book about stopping by the courtyard and praying during the next two weeks. I also
attached a bunch of great pictures of people and children (my grandchildren) who have
been out in the courtyard. It really is a wonderful way to spend time with your family.
My whole family is involved. I have pictures of the grandkids watering the
plants, trimming the bushes, drawing with sidewalk chalk, praying, making posters,
signing people up before the campaign begins, and having fun at all the
Kick-Off Rallies! Thank goodness for my husband, he does so much to help me
get ready for the campaigns, and he is really great during the campaigns.
40 days is a long time and I am crazier than usual. The laundry stacks up, the house
cleaning is hit and miss as I run out the door, and he washes a lot of dishes!
He also helps set things up and he just fabricated (he's a welder) a beautiful iron
frame for the canvas picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe. He finished it yesterday,
and then he picked it back up today and made some minor modifications to it
(at my request) I know, I know - he is awesome! We are going to place it back in
the courtyard early tomorrow morning after we leave the Adoration Chapel.
I also have to tell you about all the faithful wonderful people who come and
pray. Every day is a blessing. I love driving up and seeing people praying, some
in groups, some by themselves. There are three different rosary groups that come and
pray the pro-life rosary on different days! My friend, Candi, who is also my official
right hand co-coordinator has been amazing! She has been such a blessing to me
and to our courtyard campaign! She arrives early and sets things up, helps me plan
the rallies and purchase the supplies. She is always smiling, and full of the Holy
Spirit! She remembers the things I forget, and everyone loves her!
We have so much fun when we go to the store, and I love bouncing ideas back and
forth with her. She is a great friend and a very faithful and devoted prayer warrior!
She and I decorated a prayer request box this past Friday. We are going to place it
on the table with the sign-in sheet and the prayer books. We have some note cards for
those who want to fill out a prayer request and drop it in the box.
The 10th grade Confirmation Class had a retreat at Sacred Heart yesterday. They
wrote wonderful, colorful pro-life messages all over the concrete slab in and around
the courtyard with sidewalk chalk. I saw their artwork this morning. My heart
felt so full and I thanked God for their parents and teachers.
This is our 4th - 40 Days for Life Campaign in the courtyard at Sacred Heart.
Each campaign has been unique and special in it's own way. Different blessings and more
blessings each time. The fellowship in the courtyard really warms your heart.
Peace and quiet, a shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen and warm hugs are just a few of
the added joys I have experienced!
I better close for now. I hope you all have a wonderful week. Please remember
to pray for the unborn and their families from wherever you are. I am going to close
with the sing-song poem I wrote during the first couple of days during this campaign.

"In my Father's courtyard this is what I see,
faithful smiling people looking back
at me.
In my Father's courtyard faith and love abound,
in my Father's courtyard
 prayers go round and round.
In my Father's courtyard this is what I see,
prayerful wonderful people looking back
at me.
In my Father's courtyard you'll feel His healing peace. 
In my Father's courtyard is where I long to be."

I just thought of another verse:

"In my Father's courtyard children laugh and play,
 drawing on the sidewalk as their parents pray
In my Father's courtyard families can be found,
in my Father's courtyard
prayers go round and round."

Good Morning Out There! I am tired today! I keep waiting for the caffeine from my
coffee to kick in, but I think maybe I just need some rest! No time for rest right now
so I will just have to move, move, move! I'm doing some book work for our family
business right now and then I will head to the courtyard! It is amazing in the courtyard,
you can feel the Holy Spirit! God is good, God is so good! Please keep on praying for
a conversion of hearts! I'm going to close with a post I wrote back in 2015, or was it
2014? Anyway, the words I wrote really strike a chord within my heart today. God
bless you all, have a wonderful day!

What if? What if we promoted the pro-life message in such a way that everyone
got it? That everyone understood that a baby is a baby, not a choice. That even
though abortions are legal, no one would choose to have one. That an abortionist
would see that he or she are taking a life, instead of saving a life, that instead of
being called an abortionist, they would want to be called a doctor. You are probably
thinking "dream on sister" and maybe, probably you are right. I just know that right
now I feel an urgency about spreading the pro-life message. I just want to spread
awareness about the help that is out there. I want people to know that abortion is
not their only option. In the early morning hours, my husband and I pray for the
unborn on the East Coast because we know that abortions are already in progress.
We pray throughout the day for all the unborn everywhere, for their mothers and
for their fathers to say NO to abortion and YES to life! We pray that the abortionists
will walk out and say, NO MORE, I will not take another baby's life, not today,
not ever! Please pray with us for the unborn, please pray for the baby girl or baby
boy's mother and father, please pray for the abortionists.
Please pray for an end to abortion.

                                   Prayer to End Abortion

      Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
            and for the lives of all my brothers and sisters. 
        I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
                           yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
                                  by the Resurrection of Your Son.
                              I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
                                        Today I commit myself
                                         Never to be silent,
                                         Never to be passive,
                                   Never to be forgetful of the unborn.
                                       I commit myself to be active
                                         in the pro-life movement,
                                      and to never stop defending life
                             Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
                                   and our nation once again becomes
                                     A nation with liberty and justice
                                       not just for some, but for all.
                                   Through Christ our Lord. Amen!
                                     Jesus Protect and Save the Unborn!
