?We have reports that there were no abortions at our vigil site one day last week,? said Mary Catherine in Jacksonville.

?The abortionist arrived at 10:40 am and left at 10:50. There were only two or three cars in the parking lot -- good news!?

The community also gathered ?to deeply pray for an end to abortion in Jacksonville,? Mary Catherine said. ?Like the flame of these candles, our hearts were aflame with the Holy Spirit.?

She noted a real estate sign ? an advertisement featuring the word ?available.?

?It served as an outward expression of our inward hearts being available to God to have a greater love for the most vulnerable and to allow that love to transform the culture.?
