“For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;[b]
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.”
~ Psalm 139:13-16
It’s that time of the month again to pray as a group for the voiceless, innocent and unwanted unborn children. We will meet at Sts. Constantine and Elena at 6:15 pm on Wednesday, August 24th. Hope to see a lot of you out there who love God’s gift of life.
It is encouraging to hear what Indiana Governor Pence said on Fox News Sunday about his stand on abortion:
“Well, I’m pro-life,” Pence told Chris Wallace in response. “I don’t apologize for it.”…..“I’d like to see Roe vs. Wade overturned and consigned to the ash heap of history,” he said.” To read the full article, click here
A Pro-Life movie “Voiceless” is coming to theaters on October 7, click here for more information.
May God bless.
Thank you to all who came to the Molieben yesterday, July 22nd. It was the first time we held it at St. Seraphim Orthodox Bookstore, which was very providential in many ways. Four parishes were represented which included the faithful from Indianapolis – Joy of All Who Sorrow, Sts. Constantine and Elena, St. John the Forerunner and from Bloomington – All Saints! Welcome Jim and Patricia, delighted to have you both. Thanks to Deaconessa Rebecca for making the delicious vegan sloppy joes 🙂 also to everyone’s contribution, and most importantly your presence.
May God continue to bless this ministry, through the prayers of the Mother of God and St. John the Wonderworker of Shanghai and San Francisco, our patron saint.
Peace greetings to all Pro-Lifers!
We will resume our Molieben for Life next week, Friday, July 22nd, 6 pm at the Joy of All Who Sorrow Orthodox Church downtown Indy. We will have a brief meeting in the Reading room afterwards with some refreshments. The main church door will be open at 5:55 pm.
Please join us in praying for the unborn, mothers in crisis pregnancy, our government and those who do not uphold the sanctity of life in the womb. Your prayers are much needed in this perilous and ungodly times we live in.
Hope to see you then!
Please take the time to read this inspirational story:
Tong Phuoc Phuc from Vietnam has shown the world what true selflessness is: He has saved the lives of more than 100 children over the last 15 years. It all began in 2001 when his own wife was pregnant. He went with her to the hospital and noticed that pregnant women were entering the next room and coming out no longer with child. Read the whole story here.
