SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: The baby is safe…for now.

My husband received a telephone call on the evening of 9/25, a coworker was asking him about what to say to a woman he knows who wants to abort a 19 week old unborn baby. The caller mentioned that the mom already talked with the abortion facility and was familiar with the current law here – up to 22 weeks. She had an ultrasound but was still considering abortion. Her life has been havoc, to say the least. But you also have to remember that women who come to abort are there because they believe they have exhausted all hope. NOTHING can be further from the truth. With God, ALL things are possible:

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible,” [Matthew 19:26].

I posted a prayer request to get the prayer soldiers intercessing for her and her unborn baby right away. And of course I took the phone from my husband and preceded to tell the caller what actually happens during a late-term abortion.

He listened intently and seemed quite shocked that a late-term abortion is really that cruel and brutal. I instructed him to look at videos online regarding the actual procedure. After that, he was intent on saving this baby.

KEEPLIFELEGALWHAT GREAT NEWS! We were not on the sidewalk for this beautiful mom and her unborn child – but nevertheless, God used us and a child was saved! We need to be prolife intercessors no matter where we are! That day we were used by God to give direction and hope in what seems to be a hopeless and very dangerous situation.

We are not forsaken, neither are the unborn:

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” [Deut 31:6]

Thus far, this situation has a happy ending. God has a plan for the child who was saved from disarticulation and dismemberment of late-term abortion, [GRAPHIC VIDEO].

Abortion is like a bridge that leads to nowhere; it looks like the right way to go but it isn’t finished – the outcome will be frightening and deadly.

Trust God…your baby will thank you for it, literally.

Toleration & Apathy is NOT our friend…and it KILLS.

I’ve written often of the hatred of human life from those that consider toleration to be more important than what God has created. We are a society of drones rather than children of God. I happened upon a blog that said:

“…we have lost our hatred of death. We have become indifferent to it. We have come to assume it is natural, normal, no big deal. Why don’t we despise it or reject it as hideous anymore? Have we forgotten that we were created by God to live, not to die?”

I would go further with how our society EXPECTS death rather than fighting for it. It is a sad, sad world where we band together for homeless dogs and cats but allow abortion facilities to exterminate humans.

This apathetic ‘live and let die’ attitude feeds on people who have not sold out to God. Our love for each other has shifted to empowering the entitled classes and an uninterested Church. We feed the ego rather than the hungry; we succumb to the wiles of the culture of death while we shout an occasional ‘hallelujah’.

This writer/minister knows that we may not see an end to this extermination until Jesus comes again; we are aware of the scriptures and the expected end. Then why continue, you ask…simple: Every soul has value to God and He expects us to ‘Go into ALL the world and preach the Gospel TO EVERY CREATURE’. We are His workmanship, so are they…born AND unborn.

This ‘culture of death’ that we reside in – shouldn’t live in – seeks the souls of us, not just the physical parts of us. Not one person is expendable for any reason, not one soul is accidental.

How beautiful upon the mountains
Are the feet of him who brings good news,
Who proclaims peace,
Who brings glad tidings of good things,
Who proclaims salvation,
Who says to Zion,
“Your God reigns!” Isaiah 52:7

The Essence of Christianity | BreakPoint

There are no orphans of God, we are all accounted for. Jesus said, “But even the hairs of your head are all numbered,” Luke 12:7.

The Essence of Christianity

By: Rolley Haggard Published: August 29, 2014 5:24 PM

The apostle James wrote that the essence of Christianity—that which epitomizes “pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father”—is to care for “orphans and widows in their distress.” (James 1:27, NASB)

EvenBabiesKnowBabies aborted are “orphans” in the truest sense of the word, for they have been abandoned, by those entrusted to care for them, to the uttermost, even to death. The sheer number who have been led to slaughter with virtually no opposition even by churches who call themselves pro-life ought to give us pause before we conclude what we have been practicing is, in the sight of God, “pure and undefiled religion.”

As to where James came up with his definition of Christianity—divine inspiration, to be sure. But it also appears he knew his Bible:

Deuteronomy 10:18: He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and shows His love for the alien by giving him food and clothing.

Exodus 22:22: You shall not afflict any widow or orphan.

Deuteronomy 10:18: He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and shows His love for the alien by giving him food and clothing.

Deuteronomy 14:29: The Levite, because he has no portion or inheritance among you, and the alien, the orphan and the widow who are in your town, shall come and eat and be satisfied, in order that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.

Deuteronomy 16:1: And you shall rejoice before the Lord your God, you and your son and your daughter and your male and female servants and the Levite who is in your town, and the stranger and the orphan and the widow who are in your midst, in the place where the Lord your God chooses to establish His name.

Deuteronomy 16:14: And you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter and your male and female servants and the Levite and the stranger and the orphan and the widow who are in your towns.

Deuteronomy 24:17: You shall not pervert the justice due an alien or an orphan, nor take a widow’s garment in pledge.

Deuteronomy 24:19: When you reap your harvest in your field and have forgotten a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the alien, for the orphan, and for the widow, in order that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.

Deuteronomy 24:20: When you beat your olive tree, you shall not go over the boughs again; it shall be for the alien, for the orphan, and for the widow.

Deuteronomy 24:21: When you gather the grapes of your vineyard, you shall not go over it again; it shall be for the alien, for the orphan, and for the widow.

Deuteronomy 26:12: When you have finished paying all the tithe of your increase in the third year, the year of tithing, then you shall give it to the Levite, to the stranger, to the orphan and to the widow, that they may eat in your towns and be satisfied.

Deuteronomy 26:13: You shall say before the Lord your God, “I have removed the sacred portion from my house, and also have given it to the Levite and the alien, the orphan and the widow, according to all Your commandments which You have commanded me; I have not transgressed or forgotten any of Your commandments.”

Deuteronomy 27:19: “Cursed is he who distorts the justice due an alien, orphan, and widow.” And all the people shall say, “Amen.”

Psalm 10:14: You have seen it, for You have beheld mischief and vexation to take it into Your hand. The unfortunate commits himself to You; You have been the helper of the orphan.

Psalm 10:17-18: O Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will strengthen their heart, You will incline Your ear to vindicate the orphan and the oppressed, so that man who is of the earth will no longer cause terror.

Psalm 94:4-6: All who do wickedness vaunt themselves. They crush Your people, O Lord, and afflict Your heritage. They slay the widow and the stranger and murder the orphans.

Isaiah 1:17: Learn to do good; seek justice, reprove the ruthless, defend the orphan, plead for the widow.

Isaiah 1:23: Your rulers are rebels and companions of thieves; everyone loves a bribe and chases after rewards. They do not defend the orphan, nor does the widow’s plea come before them.

Isaiah 10:1-2: Woe to those who enact evil statutes and to those who constantly record unjust decisions, so as to deprive the needy of justice and rob the poor of My people of their rights, so that widows may be their spoil and that they may plunder the orphans.

Jeremiah 5:28: “They are fat, they are sleek, they also excel in deeds of wickedness; they do not plead the cause, the cause of the orphan, that they may prosper; and they do not defend the rights of the poor.”

Jeremiah 7:6-7: If you do not oppress the alien, the orphan, or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, nor walk after other gods to your own ruin, then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever.

Jeremiah 22:3: Thus says the Lord, “Do justice and righteousness, and deliver the one who has been robbed from the power of his oppressor. Also do not mistreat or do violence to the stranger, the orphan, or the widow; and do not shed innocent blood in this place.”

Jeremiah 49:11: “Leave your orphans behind, I will keep them alive; and let your widows trust in Me.”

Lamentations 5:3: We have become orphans without a father, our mothers are like widows.

Hosea 14:3: “Assyria will not save us, we will not ride on horses; nor will we say again, ‘Our god,’ to the work of our hands; for in You the orphan finds mercy.”

Zechariah 7:10: “And do not oppress the widow or the orphan, the stranger or the poor; and do not devise evil in your hearts against one another.”

Malachi 3:5: “Then I will draw near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers and against the adulterers and against those who swear falsely, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages, the widow and the orphan, and those who turn aside the alien and do not fear Me,” says the Lord of hosts.

John 14:18: “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.”

SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: Consistent Peaceful Vigil is Closing Ohio Surgical Abortion Facilities

In the last SEVEN DAYS, three of Ohio’s abortion facilities [Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland] will no longer offer or perform surgical abortions. At this time it is not clear if these same facilities will offer the RU-486.

Clearly, keeping constant, consistent peaceful vigils closes abortion facilities.

News of facilities closing encourages us to do more, not just where we witness but all over the country. Witnessing at other facilities is both edifying and educational; there is always room for improvement and you may have something to share as well.

Next month, both Texas and Louisiana will have to comply with new prolife laws; both states have filed cases against the new impending laws in order to keep killing. If the law is upheld, many of these facilities will close.

Soldiers, keep up the great work and remember that God knows the results, don’t lose heart, NEVER stop what you’ve been called to do!

August 28, 2014 | Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati

Cleveland Surgi-Center: Right to Life of Northeast Ohio reports that Cleveland Surgi-Center, one of Cleveland’s three abortion facilities, has closed and moved to a new location in Warrensville Heights.

According to Ohio Right to Life, Surgi-Center’s new location:

  • Is not doing surgical abortions
  • Serves as the first appointment center for those considering abortion and sends them to Akron Women’s Medical Group for the abortion
  • The first appointment costs $225.
  • The Center claims it is not doing RU-486 chemical abortions but are doing injections, what are understood to be methotrexate*

Though chemical abortions will continue at this abortion mill, we share in rejoicing in the significant effect on surgical abortions in Cleveland, currently the method of choice for most abortions in Ohio. 

Columbus Complete Healthcare for Women: Columbus Right to Life reports that Complete Healthcare for Women that abortionists Mervyn & Milroy Samuel will no longer be performing abortions after this week.  The abortion facility’s Ambulatory Surgical Facility license is to expire August 31st and does not appear to be in renewal.   

Greater Columbus Right to Life staff confirmed this information with an employee at Complete Healthcare for Women, and the abortionists’ website no longer indicates “pregnancy termination” in the list of services. Columbus Right to Life also notes that this change appears to be voluntary on the part of the abortionists, rather than result of enforcement action by the Ohio Department of Health.

*Methotrexate is used in treatment of cancer, autoimmune diseases, ectopic pregnancy, and for the induction of medical abortions.

Agape Defiled: How the Church Has Failed 55 Million Orphans | BreakPoint

Agape Defiled: How the Church Has Failed 55 Million Orphans

By: Rolley Haggard Published: May 9, 2013 8:20 PM

There’s an elephant in the living room. Only it isn’t an elephant, and it isn’t in the living room. It’s a golden calf, and it’s in our baptismal font and our pulpit and our sanctuary and our Sunday School class and our Bible study group and everywhere else we worship and serve God, because, truth be told, it’s in our hearts.

To put it bluntly: We, the church of Jesus Christ, have an idol.

It’s called ministry.

Ministry?

Yes, ministry: busying ourselves with the things of God. Granted, ministry seems very un-idol-like. But then, subtlety is the hallmark of seductive sins. It has been the devil’s most effective stratagem since the beginning of time: Get the sin to seem no sin. Better, get it to seem like service to God. Better still, get it to be service to God. Sins don’t get more subtle than that, nor does idolatry seem like idolatry when we’re busy doing things God instructed us to do. It seems like true Christianity, like pure and undefiled religion.

But is it? Even ministry can be idolatry when it supplants what God most wants from us. What is the acid test of true Christianity, of pure and undefiled religion? What does it look like?

Pure and Undefiled Religion

We are not left guessing. In James 1:27, God tells us what “pure and undefiled religion” looks like: “Visit[ing] orphans and widows in their distress.” That’s divine shorthand for serving “the least of these” with sacrificial agape love. Acts of compassion, exemplified by coming to the aid of suffering women and children, are the distinguishing marks of true Christianity.

The American church, by stunning contrast, has been characterized the past 40 years—ever since Roe v. Wade—by the deliberate and thoroughgoing neglect of 55 million orphans in exquisite distress. One has to wonder if the cold indifference shown by the church to these orphans could have been any more absolute had salvation itself depended on completely ignoring them.

Orphans?

Yes, orphans, in the truest sense. These little victims, before having their lives snuffed out in abortion, were emphatically orphans, for there are two ways a child becomes an orphan: One is to lose his parents; the other is for his parents to abandon him. It doesn’t take a Solomon to see here the applicability of James 1:27.

Yet for four decades the church has fastidiously refused to muster aid on behalf of these little people and against one of the most barbaric and inhumane practices imaginable. Not only has the church opted not to visit these orphans in their distress, but by refusing to voice any significant public moral objection, the church has actually gone to the opposite extreme and given tacit sanction to their cruel mutilation and murder.

And this comports with James 1:27, how?

No one will answer that question because there is no answer. We are wholly without excuse. We have ignored not only the soundless cries of these abandoned orphans, but more ominously, the unequivocal declarations of our God and Father as well.

This raises the additional and perhaps more deeply soul-probing question: If pure and undefiled religion in God’s sight is to visit orphans in their distress, then just what kind of religion has the church been practicing since 1973? What kind of religion is it whose defining characteristic is the refusal to visit tens of millions of orphans in their inconceivably great distress?

Defining Characteristic?

Yes, defining characteristic. A defining characteristic is the feature most notable and distinctive about a thing. A hundred years from now history will remember us not for our missions or evangelism or our ministry, much less for our fidelity to the Bible. It will remember us for our breathtakingly thorough disregard of orphans in their distress.

Abortion continues to flourish largely because of us. We could end abortion overnight—if we really wanted to. The present generation of Christians will no more be lauded for its service to Christ than would a perverted pastor who preached spellbinding sermons and won thousands of souls by day, but committed pedophilia against a four-year-old child by night.

We will not be remembered for the religious busyness we called ministry—in the final analysis, this amounts to so much window-dressing in the sight of God—but for refusal to give Christ the one thing He wants in evidence of true love for Him: that we would love our neighbor as ourselves.

The logic is inescapable: If pure and undefiled religion in the sight of God is to give compassionate, sacrificial, agape love to abandoned children, then American Christianity is grotesquely impure and defiled—like a river of life befouled by the corpses of too many children for even the angels to count.

Solomon: The Mother’s Day Ruminations of an Abandoned Son

Call me her son, but not my mother deem
The one who gave me life enough to taste
The barest part of God’s ecstatic dream,
Then rid me from her womb with wicked haste.
“Considered innocent till guilty proved”
So said the law she praised, yet gave me death
With no defense, who not so much as moved
A tiny fist or raised his voice in threat.
She thought it wisdom plotting my demise
And naming “Orphan,” by default, her son;
But she by murder made that son more wise;
For cenotaphs shall dub him “Solomon,”
Who, like the Sage, is sure a mother true
Would not consent to cut her child in two.

SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: “How can my friend get past her abortion?”

THAT is probably the number one question I am most often asked, after “Don’t you people have a job?” People are funny…

Yesterday, a woman said that her friend confessed to having an abortion many, many years ago and can’t get past the ‘past’. She asked my opinion of what to tell her, and here it is: JESUS.

In my mind’s eye, I see a crucified Jesus dying on a cross for me…bloodied, bludgeoned, humiliated. He died a public death for ME and my sinful past that cannot be erased from my memory or the history that others insist on remembering, you know….just in case I forgot ;)

My Faith is in my risen LORD. It is His shed Blood which washed my sin away never to be remembered again. Then, it is up to ME to rest in His finished work on the Cross, that I AM FORGIVEN and that NO ONE can take that away from me. EVER.

My dear sisters in the LORD: If you have had an abortion, I understand what you are going through, I have carried that bag. You do not have to carry this heavy burden any longer! TRUST IN JESUS – He will forgive, He will LOVE you, He will protect you!

Way too often I hear how God cannot possibly forgive them. NOTHING can be further from the truth! It isn’t God who won’t forgive, it’s people…people that you TRUST who will try to separate you from God by reminding you of your past. Relative righteousness is how people feed off other’s miseries and histories. Do not be fooled, God is not MOCKED; He will make beauty FROM ashes!

We need to require more from our friends and family who seek to keep us under subjection to THEM.

We are His, We are forgiven, We will NOT be forsaken.

Jesus said: “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” [Matthew 11:28-30]

DEATH IS SOLD HERE: The Judicial Revolving Door is for Abortionists Only.

KEEPLIFELEGAL
The prior week’s aborted children.

In the state of Ohio, legislators worked TIRELESSLY to pass prolife legislation since the recent elections. There was great progress made to keep women safe by requiring abortionists to have REAL admitting privileges at a LOCAL hospital, just like any other doctor that performs any surgery, such as plastic surgeons and oral surgeons.

Why won’t women research the abortionist like they would for shoes or purses?

Shouldn’t it important to you to find out if your doctor is in good standing with a local hospital? And if he/she is not, wouldn’t you like to know why? Then why do abortionists get a [judicial] pass?

See a recent inspection report here.

What are admitting privileges? Admitting privileges are the right of a physician to admit patients to a particular hospital, and to provide specific services in that facility. In order for a physician to be granted privileges, a hospital generally checks the individual’s medical credentials, license and malpractice history.” Read the rest here.

A couple of days ago I had an attorney’s ear who happened to be Republican and asked him about the appeals process for the notorious partial-birth abortionist Martin Haskell; he has appealed AGAIN and I’d like to know when that is going to stop and a final decision made. I also inquired about the Toledo facility that is to lose their license today [8/12/14]. I believe that at least four abortion facilities in Ohio are ‘operating’ outside of the law, without admitting privileges to any hospital.

KEEPLIFELEGALThe attorney said probably never; as long as the abortionist has the money TO appeal, they can continue regardless of what the law says. The morbid part of it is that they can continue to hurt women and kill unborn infants while in appeals. PEOPLE: This isn’t a botched nose job…children are DYING.

To infinity and beyond? The liberal judges that abortionists easily find to hear these cases could tell them to cease all ‘business’ until a decision is made…but they seldom do. Judges and the abortionist’s attorneys cite so-called ‘hardship’ making abortion minded women to go further to abort. Whose hardship is it? Is it theirs because of their lofty lifestyle and the blood money it takes to support it OR is the hardship for the unborn baby that will be disarticulated and shredded during an abortion procedure as the appeals process drones on and on and on?

Well, there you go: Abortionists can appeal forever and continue to kill in Ohio. Anyone who does not follow the law is a CRIMINAL.

The Great Prolife Commission: Knowing that there may not be an end to the judicial revolving door for abortionists, we have to continue steadfast and in boldness of spirit to save the unborn from abortion death EVEN if that is one mom and baby at a time. The sidewalk is that slim gap between life and death for the babies…we need to continue to utilize it and capitalize it for the Glory of God to save lives and further the Great Commission.

Go to the sidewalk, rain or shine, heat or snow, closed or open and PRAY. Bring friends, neighbors, family and your church and PRAY TODAY. EVERY STEP COUNTS IN THE RACE.

UPDATE: The Toledo abortion facility, Capital ‘Care’ Network, got their ‘stay’ today.

America’s Greatest Tragedy in Your Own Backyard? Yes.

We see neighbors walking for fitness sporadically while we are on the sidewalk. Yesterday, a neighbor walked right in front of us in her brand new blue Nike’s and asked: “Is THAT an abortion clinic?”

I was kind of shocked by that…how can she, or anyone else, not know this? We have Life Chain, TWO 40 Days Campaigns per year (3-4 rallies apiece), constant vigil particularly when the facility is open….“Is THAT an abortion clinic?” WOW. But my surprise is short lived: Churches refuse to acknowledge this facility, too….or we would see much more activity….which we don’t. The Church won’t dirty their hands with America’s greatest tragedy.

KEEPLIFELEGALTip of the iceberg, I’d say. Who else doesn’t know? If there is no participation from the churches in the community, how can they know?

Some abortion facilities hide very well from their neighbors and local businesses – and then there are others that ‘hide’ in plain sight. Haskell’s murder mill tried to hide but it didn’t quite work. His legendary work of being a ‘pioneer’ of the partial birth abortion didn’t help his anonymity much.

This killing facility has been at the exact same address since the mid 80’s. I’ve seen the county auditor report for how much money the property has LOST through the years. It’s been an eyesore on this community and has literally brought down the property value of nearby homes. A house right behind it can’t sell at all. Who would want to live right behind a place that murders unborn infants? KEEPLIFELEGAL

“Is THAT an abortion clinic?” You have wonder how many other people who live near the place have no idea that America’s greatest tragedy is right in their own back yard. Conversely, I’m sure that many don’t care that this murder mill is in their midst…until they try to sell their home. Are they ‘sincerely deceived’?

America’s greatest tragedy is sat squarely in a neighborhood with families, retirees, parks, churches…right in your own backyard.

SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: The Post Abortive Life of the Prolifer in the Abortion Wars

I stand with many people on the sidewalk from other walks of life, religions, and why they come to the battle ground of the abortion wars. We each have our own story, mine is unique…so is yours.

All I can do is give an account of what it is like to be post abortive from my perspective and in the line of fire.

Let me start off with GOD IS GOOD! I couldn’t do any of this without His mercy and grace. While I did not have the strength to overcome from my own family, I have a heavenly Father who loves and forgives and WANTS me to overcome, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me,” [Matthew 16:24]. I had to first deny myself – who I WAS without Christ – and pick up the cross that no one else will and be the disciple I am meant to be. 

OSAscreenshotfuneral1As I continue along in these abortion wars on and off the sidewalk, people ask me what it’s like to be post abortive. I’ve always found this hard to explain but today I had a revelation that explains it fully. I came across a new Operation Save America video from their last national event in New Orleans. The event included an aborted child’s funeral in Jackson Square. A young man was carrying this tiny casket…and there it was.

Post Abortive women carry this tiny but very heavy casket of their own aborted child [or children] everywhere they go. The weight of it is incredible; the casket not only has our dead child in it, but it also has all of the regret, shame, guilt and self-hatred with it.

Every day without Christ, the tiny white casket gets heavier and heavier. There are days when we really think everyone else can see it and THAT is excruciatingly painful. It’s like the scarlet letter, out loud and for everyone to mock and scorn.

With Christ the burden is lighter but still there, it was my own sin that led me down a path to being post abortive. Because of the loving kindness of a risen Savior, I can now be the soldier in the war to stop what killed my unborn child. My scarlet letter will always be there but I wear it differently – my pain can keep another from taking a step down the same path.

On the sidewalk, we openly tell people what abortion is, what it will do today and what it will do in the future. There are no lies and no exaggerations, only truth and the Gospel. OSAscreenshotfuneral2

During the funeral, Father Frank Pavone said it best: “Because they were killed in secret, we will honor them in the broad of day. Because after all, the killing of these children by abortion is promoted and advertised publicly; well therefore we are going to honor them publicly.”

I publicly honor my child every day I am on the sidewalk. THAT is how I heal from abortion.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.” Psalm 3:5-6

Special thanks to Operation Save America, Fr. Frank Pavone, and Stand True AND my husband for honoring the children lost to abortion.

HOBBY LOBBY DECISION: Victorious, at what cost?

While I am pleased with the decision, the fact that we still have to fight for our most basic rights is ludicrous. Over and over again we fight this fight, a fight that WAS fought for, to keep our religious freedom and freedom of speech LEGAL.

How many unborn lives were lost because businesses were forced to provide toxic contraception and abortion coverage to workers?

I believe that Christians need to start acting like Christians; they need to use their God-given ability to share the Gospel all the time, to spend their money with like-minded individuals and companies, and be what God called them to be. We have caved over and over and over again as a Christian society to protected classes of people who hate us. It’s time to for the tail to stop waggin’ the dog.

For now, the Hobby Lobby decision is a victory – but as Christians we need to continue to fight the good fight of faith, be the example we are called to be, to never take no as the usual answer from the social agenda.
