Buckeye Back Roads Tour cont: We traveled to Norwalk, Ohio, where I talked at a prayer group Monday night at St. Mary’s and during a Mass at St. Paul’s the following day. I talked about how abortion wouldn’t end until we, frequently, took to the streets. After the talk at St. Paul’s, our family did just that, took to the streets of downtown Norwalk. We held signs saying: ABORTION KILLS CHILDREN; PRAY TO END ABORTION; ABORTION HURTS WOMEN… Tuesday night we went to a prayer vigil to stop abortion at St. Paul’s. Deacon Jim Reichert said that in America now, one in four babies are aborted (read: killed). He said we kill more babies in one year in America now — than the number of all American soldiers killed in all our wars combined. Deacon Jim said that the gospel explains the greatest sacrifice is to lay down one’s life for another. Conversely, abortion is about “sacrificing the other person for my own good,” said the deacon. He also added that the Catholic Church looks at abortion as an “intrinsic evil,” according to a church pamphlet on “Faithful Citizenship.” Note: After the vigil, a group of parishioners got together to talk about setting up a committee to get the teachings about Faithful Citizenship into the hands of as many Catholics at St. Paul’s as possible before the November vote.
