25 / 02 / 2009 - Precious Life launch their `40 Days for Life` Campaign
Precious Life officially launched their 40 Days for Life Campaign campaign with a special Mass in Derry.
The Campaign consists of three components - prayer and fasting; peaceful vigils outside abortion agencies; and community outreach. We hope the 40 day campaign will inspire people who have never been involved in pro-life activities to come forward and join the pro-life movement.
We have already started to distribute thousands of Campaign Leaflets and Prayer Packs.
This Lent, from Ash Wednesday to Palm Sunday, communities across Ireland and the UK will be uniting with more than 127 cities in the USA, Canada and Australia for this largest simultaneous pro-life mobilisation in history. We are specifically praying and fasting for the protection of Ireland from abortion and the repeal of the 1967 Abortion Act in Britain.
During the 40 day, we are encouraging more people to join our Prayer Vigils outside abortion facilities. Here in Northern Ireland, we are urging people to join our daily vigils outside the Family Planning Association's (FPA) abortion referral agencies in Belfast and Derry.
As part of the community outreach component of the Campaign, we are encouraging people to take the pro-life message out onto the streets. As Pope John Paul II instructed “...go out on the streets and into public places ...Woe to you if you do not succeed in defending life.” Precious Life will be recruiting new volunteers to distribute information from our Pro-Life Information Table which we set up in towns across Northern Ireland every Saturday.
We are spiritually united with others across the world to praying and fasting for 40 days to end the tragic violence of abortion. God used 40-day periods to transform individuals, communities, and the entire world. From Noah in the flood, to Moses on the mountain, to the disciples after Christ’s resurrection, it is clear that God sees the transformative value of His people accepting and meeting a 40-day challenge. We look forward to seeing what kind of transformation God will bring about throughout Ireland and the UK.
