Last Saturday, we hosted a social media training day for religious sisters and brothers, organised by the Vocations Forum of the Conference for Religious of Scotland (CRS). One of the main aim of the Vocations Forum was to make the Religious of Scotland more visible. As part of the training day, to prove how effective facebook can be, Louise (who did some of the training) took a group selfie and posted it onto the Vocation Scotland facebook page, asking people to like and comment so that we could see how far it went and how quickly. By the time we had finished our meeting 90 minutes later, it had already reached 5000+ people in places as diverse as Virginia and New York in the USA, Perth in Western Australia and Vietnam Рnot to mention many people much closer to home. Less than 48 hours later it had reached nearly 11000 people. Have a look at the VocationScotland facebook page here www.facebook.com/vocationscotland

Please pray for a woman who is 14 weeks pregnant and under huge pressure from people around her to have an abortion. The abortion is booked for 2 weeks time. Pray for a change of heart to those pressuring her into this abortion and for the support and strength she needs to continue with her pregnancy.

Question 44: “Do you know the youngest babies ever to be born alive in Scotland and survive?”


We are proud of our young people who represented Scotland at the March for Life in Washington DC last week. They had an amazing time.


Baby Gabriel will be delivered tomorrow, at 33 weeks, due to there being too little fluid around baby Gabriel in the womb and a slowing of his growth. He is being delivered in London. Please pray for the surgeon and the two teams who will be involved in Gabriel’s delivery. Also pray for Gabriel’s family. The plan is for Gabriel to be in an incubator for several weeks after delivery.

Question 42: What about population control? Isn’t the world over crowded as it is?


Please can you urgently pray for Baby Gabriel’s mother, who has gone into labour at 30+ weeks. We pray for both mother and baby, who have been through so much during this pregnancy. Baby Gabriel was diagnosed with severe spina bifida and underwent an operation at 23 weeks in utero.
