Today The Good Shepherd was at Ground Zero and there was an average of five people per hour. Many people from across the city came to pray with us, including Frances from Silent no More. Thank you to all who came to Ground Zero today!
I believe two "bouquets of roses" arrived, surely gifts from St. Theresa on this her feast day. The first "bouquet" fell about noon when a van with a well known professional logo stopped and the driver presented us with six large coffees,including all the fixings and a large box of delicious muffins. The driver did not want any acknowledgement, stating that he just wanted us to know how much he appreciates our courage and conviction and to ask us to keep up the prayerful presence because things are changing and our message is being seen and heard.
The second "bouquet" arrived around 2PM when three off duty law and security professionals arrived asking if we had any way of introducing them to Linda Gibbons. There was a woman at the site who could be considered a look alike of Linda and perhaps they thought they had come across Linda and were just hoping for a formal introduction. They remained and spoke to those they had approached and thanked them for their presence. The three reminded the group that we are making a difference and to continue the good work at Ground Zero.
Two federal Members of Parliament also stopped by and told us how pleased they are to see so many people praying and witnessing to the unborn. They made a special request that we continue to voice our pro-life conviction because the messages are being received and acted upon as demonstrated in the most recent vote on Stephen Woodworths' Motion-312.
I think St. Theresa may have also taken care of the weather as the forecast rain was nowhere to be seen.
