Fr. Joseph came out to the vigil site and stayed a good while with his flock. His parish family from St. Anthony drove him there and made sure he knew where to go and felt welcome!
Down the road at the Planned Parenthood abortion referral center, another priest stopped by to briefly join those who have faithfully prayed at that location since it used to perform abortions (before the mega Planned Parenthood opened in South Dallas). He knelt on the sidewalk and led the sorrowful mysteries of the rosary, blessed those on the sidewalk, and then off he went.
And in another blessing a campaign team member showed up at the vigil site with "Pray to End Abortion" signs. Before his arrival there were very few signs available for vigil volunteers, and none of them were 40 Days for Life signs. We were just about to contact the campaign to request some, and they appeared!
Praise Holy Triune God for all that He is doing and will do through this powerful time of prayer and witness.
