40 DAYS FOR LIFE

TO END ABORTION

WHAT IS IT?

This coordinated

40-day campaign

aims to end abortion 

with prayer and fasting,

and a peaceful all-day vigil

in front of abortion businesses.


It takes place during the

40 days of Lent.




HOW DO PEOPLE PARTICIPATE?

The visible

centerpiece of

40 Days for Life is a

round-the-clock prayer vigil

outside a single Planned Parenthood.


It is a peaceful and educational presence.

Those who are called to stand witness

during this 24-hour-a-day presence

send a powerful message

to the community.


It also serves to call to repentance

those who work at the abortion center

and those who patronize the facility.




WHAT CAN WE DO?

We have an abortion center

in our own backyard.


Planned Parenthood, Smithtown

is located right here at

70 Maple Avenue.


CHRIST THE KING

is committed to holding

a prayerful presence at that facility

on ALL 6 THURSDAYS of Lent

from 7AM to 7PM.


Each of us can commit to 1 hour

on at least 1 of the 6 Thursdays

during the season of Lent.




This is our responsibility.

This is our opportunity.


It is not easy. It will feel a lot

like what Our Lady and Saint John

felt standing under the cross.


They stood by Christ in his agony.

We stand with the mothers and their

unborn children in theirs.


Some of our company will hide

in the upper room out of fear, but

we will not condemn them.


Nor will we fear the rejection

of this world, which has lost its way.


Rather, instructed by their example,

we will imitate Our Lady and Saint John,

returning no insult to those

who may mock us.


We will stand and pray in communion

with them, keeping vigil with them.

We will watch for one hour.


- Father Rob

WHAT IF I AN UNABLE?

Remember:

To pray is the least

and the most any of us can do.


If you are unable to stand vigil,

please offer some prayers and sacrifices

on the Thursdays of Lent for those

who are standing outside of

the abortion clinic.


If you unite your prayers with

their witness, you will be like those

holy religious monks and nuns

whose prayers are holding

up the Church!
