Hand in Hand...

... they exchanged their vows: "... in sickness and in health..."

Now one of them has cancer.

For the next seven weeks, virtually coinciding with the 40 Days for Life prayer campaign outside Southwestern late-term abortion facility, they will be traveling past the vigil site en route to the hospital for chemo treatments.

They decided that every day after the cancer treatment, they will stop by the vigil site  — once again, hand in hand — to pray, uniting their mental and physical sufferings with Christ's and the babies who are dying. 

It is one more opportunity after raising their children and serving the community through faithful pro-life witness, to honor the God whom they trust.

They are not people who want adulations for what they are doing. They prefer anonymity.

We are inspired by this couple ... and challenged ... to do more!  Much more.

Give thanks unto the Lord for He is good.
Blessed be His Holy Name for it is He 
who has made us and not we ourselves.
May He be blessed praised worshipped and adored
by all His creatures in heaven and on earth.
