I was at the mid-point Rally tonight and was inspired by those who came to give their support to Paul Lauzon and his team from Campaign Life Coalition and their volunteers for their endless effort in the fight against abortion and in their brave sponsor of the 40 Days for Life campaign. I use the word brave given that it takes a team of strong, courageous and dedicated individuals to fight this battle to save the lives of innocent children brought to the slaughter. It was a joy and great honour to have our first 40 Days for Life coordinator Ms. Nicole Campbell travel all the way from Toronto to give us a wonderful pep rally speach and recharge our batteries for the next half of the race! Although the numbers seemed small at the pep rally, it was certainly a joy to see a great multitude of people flood the gates of St. Patrick's Basilica for the Mass with Archbishop Pendergast. The service was memorable with the Knights of Columbus leading the procession down the middle isle of the church. I was moved to tears by this service and homily by the Archbishop and could almost feel and hear the children rejoice! May God give each and every one of you the courage and perseverence to run the race to the finish line with the prize being a child whose Mother chose life because of your prayers and most importantly, to hear our Father say "Well done my good and faithful servant!". God bless you.
