Sharonville Abortion Center is Closed - Sharonville Respect Life Ministry Newsletter

Dear Parishioners,

I want to let you know that there has been no activity at the abortion mill last week or the days checked this week. Someone called the abortion center to schedule an abortion and she was told there are no services in Sharonville. God is good! I believe that our prayers and witness have been instrumental in the closing of this abortion mill. The rosary has been prayed there weekly for the last seven years. Our Lord listened.

Lent as a Pilgrimage, Msgr. Frank Lane, professor emeritus and spiritual director, as he guides us on a virtual pilgrimage. Reflections include:

  • Life as a journey from conception to the grave
  • A Pilgrimage expresses awareness of the journey and its purpose (Exodus)
  • Jesus was a pilgrim - going up to Jerusalem for Passover
  • Early Christians took pilgrimages to the Holy Land
  • Contemporary Pilgrimage sights and their meaning for us: El Camino, Lough Derg, Our Lady of Consolation
