Seige of Jericho.

If you are any where near Birmingham you may be interested in the following. Of course you can also assist with your prayers.

Organised by The Birmingham Oratory...

" " The Siege of Jericho", will take this year from Monday 9th to Sunday 15th of June. From Monday to Saturday there will be Mass here at 3p.m., which will be followed by a procession, led by a priest carrying the Blessed Sacrament on his person, beginning at the Calthorpe Abortion Clinic in Arthur Road. The Rosary will be said along the way. On Sunday the 15th there will not be an extra Mass, but a Solemn Procession of the Blessed Sacrament (exposed), will take place around the clinic, commencing at 2 p.m. in Arthur Road. We hope you will make your best effort to be there. For those who cannot take part, please support us in your prayers."

The intentions are firstly for a change of heart among both the organisers and staff of abortion clinics both in Birmingham and elsewhere, that they should know the distress inflicted by abortion and the cruel death inflicted upon unborn life and secondly to reinstate the priesthood in the eyes of the people.

I originally thought of contrasting an image of the Blessed Sacrament with one to do with abortion but on doing a Google image search the images were so shocking I could not bring myself to use one. Instead we have an image of despair as this is where abortion leads. If you want to see what abortion is about do that image search for yourself.

( There is a poster for the event but I can't upload it for some reason.)
