A CALL TO PRAYER!
Construction Resumes at Planned Parenthood site,
New Orleans, La
For seven months, the Planned Parenthood construction site on Claiborne Avenue in New Orleans has been dormant. As you know, Planned Parenthood intends to build a facility there to perform up to 2,844 abortions a year.
In the past few days, construction activity has resumed, with the apparent goal of preparing the site for the imminent pouring of concrete for the building's foundation.
It is time we gathered again to pray and stand for a peaceful New Orleans, not one with more abortions sold by Planned Parenthood.
We will be there at 1 PM on this Saturday and 10 AM on Monday morning. Please join us if you can. If you cannot come at this time, please make a visit on your own to the site. We remind you to remain on the sidewalk and be peaceful.
Please tell others. New Orleans needs peace, not more abortion!

St. Patrick, March 17th
A Catholic Bishop of the 4th Century and one of the world's most popular Saints of Ireland today! Find out why here....
He was caputure and as a slave to tend sheep for most of his youth but instead of being bitter he turned to God in fervent, unceasing prayer! When he was released the people recognized his holiness as he began to preach. One could say that he was responsible for the entire nation of Ireland's conversion as he built churches and converted Kings and kingdoms! St. Patrick is an example of how one man could do so much with God and for God. Let us look to this beloved saint as an example, for guidance and intercession!! St. Patrick Pray for Us!
Confessions of St. Patrick
1. I, Patrick, a sinner, most rustic, the least of all the faithful, and utterly despised by many. My father was Calpornius, a deacon, son of Potitus, a priest, of the village Bannavem Taburniæ; he had a country seat nearby, and there I was taken captive.
I was then about sixteen years of age. I did not know the true God. I was taken into captivity to Ireland with many thousands of people--and deservedly so, because we turned away from God, and did not keep His commandments, and did not obey our priests, who used to remind us of our salvation. And the Lord brought over us the wrath of his anger and scattered us among many nations, even unto the utmost part of the earth, where now my littleness is placed among strangers.
2. And there the Lord opened the sense of my unbelief that I might at last remember my sins and be converted with all my heart to the Lord my God, who had regard for my abjection, and mercy on my youth and ignorance, and watched over me before I knew Him, and before I was able to distinguish between good and evil, and guarded me, and comforted me as would a father his son.
3. Hence I cannot be silent--nor, indeed, is it expedient--about the great benefits and the great grace which the lord has deigned to bestow upon me in the land of my captivity; for this we can give to God in return after having been chastened by Him, to exalt and praise His wonders before every nation that is anywhere under the heaven.

St. Joseph Feast Day, March 19th
Patrion Saint of the Universal Church and a Holy Death
Tradition tells us that he had the great honor to have died in the presence of Our Lady and his Son, which fact makes him the patron of a holy death. Because during his life he was given the great responsibility of caring for and protecting the Virgin -- who is the Mother of all Israel -- and her Son, St. Joseph is considered the patron and protector of the entire Church. St. Joseph, Terror of Demons, Pray For Us!

Defending the Seal of Confession!
It's very similar to attorney- client, or physician- patient confidentiality! Although in this case it is a much stronger blow because it's another attack on our Religious Freedoms! Please remember to pray for Fr. Bayhi and the Baton Rouge Catholic Diocese that their case will go favorably!
