Silent No More and Vocations to the PriesthoodMay 24th, 2012
Fr. Kyle Schnippel’s recent post on his blog, Called By Name, has struck a chord with many. We’re reposting it here for your consideration.
Yesterday on Patheos, The Crescat posted a very personal, moving account of the lasting effects she suffers from mistakes she has made in the past. Please head over there to read the whole thing, say a quick prayer for her and all those who are agonizing with such mistakes that they might be healed by Christ’s loving call and then comeback over here. Ok? Ok.
Back? Good. A few thoughts, if I might.
I am involved in the Pro-Life Movement. Gladly. I say Mass once a month for the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants at Holy Name Church, Mount Auburn. (I’m on 1st Saturday of the Month, 8:00 AM, stop by if you get the chance.) I pray regularly for an end to abortion and the conversion of hearts of those who are in that industry and the lawmakers who shelter and coddle them. I’ve been to the March for Life, but need to go more often. I am an advisor for Cincinnati Right to Life, where the Pro-Life Movement was founded. (Really, I mean that.)
With all the above, I also recognize that I am not going to be the one who wins the war against abortion on the everyday level. I can’t.
