|Dear Catholics, Christians and Pro-Lifers,
Next Sunday 10/4 is Respect Life Sunday and thousands of us will be praying and passing out fully approved non-partisan Party Platform Comparisons from Priests for Life.
As we have done in previous years, we will be doing this in front of St. Luke’s the Evangelist on W. Main St. in Westboro after the masses on the public sidewalks outside our church. You are urged to do the same or join other groups.
You are also invited to join us at St. Luke’s if you can. We have printed hundreds of comparisons in English & in Spanish. Please let me know ASAP if you can help us for about 25 minutes at the end of one or more of these Masses: Saturday 5pm, and Sunday 7, 9 and 11am. We will wear masks, practice social distancing and wear gloves that we will provide. We will provide further simple instructions.
For more information on what is happening about Respect Life Sunday nationally please see: https://www.priestsforlife.org/elections/ , https://www.priestsforlife.org/, https://prolifeaction.org/ and https://prolifeaction.org/event/votereducation/ and the Comparisons taken right from the Republican & Democratic Platforms: https://www.priestsforlife.org/candidates/2020-party-comparison.pdf on
Human Life, Planned Parenthood, Judges, Education/ School Choice, Sex Education and Foreign Assistance.
Of the many articles on Why Life is the Most Important i.e., The Preeminent Issue at this time, here are these from the US Conference of Bishops “Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship”, and in their “Living the Gospel of Life.” https://www.ncronline.org/news/accountability/signs-times/abortion-preeminent-issue-global-warming-not-urgent-say-bishops, https://www.catholicworldreport.com/2019/11/23/why-the-issue-of-abortion-is-still-the-preeminent-priority/.
As you know this is a most critical time for us, our families and friends with the Elections coming and a new Supreme Court Justice being voted on. This is the most important election in the history of our country! It will determine if we will become a Socialist / Communist country or not. This is information that we must have and pass on, directly or indirectly, to friends and families here and anywhere in the country.
It is a moral requirement to promote these truths! As Pope Benedict and many other of our leaders have said: “It is the duty of the laity to participate actively in political life” …. ”for lay faithful to bear witness to Christ and the Gospel in the civil and political community”.

Please let me know any questions. Thank you very much!
God bless you, your families and our country!
