We are just a week away from Ash Wednesday of Lent 2020.  A time to transform ourselves for Christ.  A time to transform our family.  A time to transform the culture of death into the Culture of Life.

How does one do such an overwhelming task of transformation of self, family, and culture?  Well, it is simple. Yes, it is simple.  We do it all with merciful love!  Not our love, but God’s merciful love.

We can only have real transformation with God’s merciful love.  I know this for my own transformation didn’t really start until I  was immersed in God’s merciful love that Friday of November 2016.

So once I knew that I needed His merciful in my self-care, I was able to spread this merciful love with my family (yes, I have failed many times but I know to rise again and again and again.) and I was able to see how I could do my part in transforming this culture of death to life.

Ever thought about Fasting for Abortion Doctors? Do you know how profound it was to really offer up love for someone who was paid to destroy human lives?  Talk about being moved to Love others through God’s mercy!

Yet it is filled with hardship.

Because I believe that the Father of Lies, the evil one doesn’t want one to pray for those workers nor fast for them.  He needs soldiers to do his evil work in destroying human lives.

So this Lent, will you add a pro-life merciful love to your Lent plan?  Would you be willing to pray and do some kind of fasting for a person whose livelihood is killing a baby?  Can you truly, say their names and with only God’s love uplift them in prayer?

I challenge you to join me.  We can’t let those poor souls who don’t know God’s love and mercy,  fall into hell. We can do our part this Lent to bring souls to God’s merciful love.

God in His greatness gave us a way to partake in the co-redemption of souls of others through, faith, prayer, and fasting!

Don’t underestimate the power of prayer and fasting along with Faith in God’s merciful love.

Here are a few more pro-life ideas that one can do this Lent to help transform self, family, and culture.

40 Days for Life

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion.

Culture of Life Studies

 Culture of Life Studies Program is an amazing program that stresses the culture of life as an integral part of every academic discipline and to help students become effective communicators of the gospel of life.  There all types of activities for all ages.

I plan to do these 3 with the kids this Lent:

Life Runners is the world’s largest Pro-Life Team that uses running or walking to promote LIFE.  As you know that our goal here is to promote whole-body wellness and doing some type of exercise such as walking or running does the body good and even better if we can witness for others on how precious is Life.


With the Love of Christ,
