It is a day long prayed-for by many a pilgrim, and worked-for by the late postulator of her cause, Father John Paret SJ, the former director of the shrine at Auriesville who always received us with such generosity of catholic heart.
Let all thanks now be to God for so great a gift to the Church Universal and to the church in America.
The Director of the annual Pilgrimage for Restoration has asked pilgrims to pray, immediately upon learning this gladsome news, one Ave Maria to join in the jubilation of thanks to God for this glorious day.
On Thursday, December 8, brigadesmen & women plan to pray God to spare the lives of innocent unborn children scheduled to be killed at the Allentown Womens’ Center abortion clinic on Union Boulevard in Allentown, PA.
Prayers begin at 1pm.
The address is 1409 Union Blvd, 18109.
Veterans who pray and give witness there suggest that we stay on Livingston Street, behind the clinic, and do not speak to anyone from the AWC.
It was by all accounts a pilgrimage of many graces. Deo gratias!
