Happy Easter!

16Apr17

On this the day of the Lord’s Resurrection, we celebrate the new life that Jesus gives us. We may struggle in life, we may have sufferings, we may make mistakes, we may feel discouraged. There’s not a feeling that we experience that Jesus didn’t live through himself. Let us remember that Jesus has done away with our sins in his death on the cross. He lived, died and rose from the dead for us – this life on earth is only the start of an eternity with God. Death can have no power over us ultimately. Alleluia! May God bless you all.

 

 


Congratulations to the many people who took part in this year’s 40 Days for Life campaign, especially Rose and her team of leaders, who devoted themselves full-time to ensure that the 40 day vigil ran smoothly no matter what the weather. What a wonderful witness they have been to the value of the life of the unborn and that women need loving support in their difficulties, rather than abortion.

The vigil came to an end on Saturday evening, with a candlelit silent hour of prayer. In Glasgow, 118 people took part in this last hour.

There was a closing event on Sunday afternoon- with pro-life speakers in George Square.

Let us continue to pray for an end to abortion, in this the 50th year of the Abortion Act.


This year is the 50th anniversary of the passing of the 1967 Abortion Act in the UK. Sr Roseann is answering 50 questions about abortion, to mark the 50th anniversary.

Question 12: “Does abortion affect the doctors and nurses who participate in them?”

Question 11: “What about men and abortion, surely this is a woman’s issue?”


An article was published in the Evening Times (on 10th March) featuring Hilary, one of the midwives who gets equipment for the women she works with from us. Here is an extract from the article:

“Hilary is part of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s SNIPs team (Special Needs in Pregnancy) which works with some of the city’s most vulnerable pregnant women including young teenagers and the homeless. She recently became one of only 20 community nurses selected to be part of the first group of Queen’s Nurses in almost 50 years – a marker of excellence in the industry.

Hilary’s Mini Cooper is normally crammed full of prams, toys and cots as she helps source women equipment through the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative.

She said: “The women get a cot, a steriliser and and baby bedding and that’s it. So when these women have their babies – they get £35 a week in support – you can’t buy anything with that.

“So usually from the Cardinal Winning charity, I can get these women everything they need.

“They are amazing. There are lots of charities in Glasgow which help.”

Question 10: “The doctors say the baby’s going to die anyway, isn’t it cruel to ask the woman to continue with the pregnancy under these circumstances?”


Today we celebrate what a gift those with Down Syndrome are to our world. They bring us much joy and play a vital role in our lives and communities.

Sadly, 90% of babies with Down Syndrome are aborted.

Question 9: But what if the baby is going to be disabled or have a short life expectancy?
