Supporting the Unborn and their Mothers

It can be easy to underestimate the value of silent prayer, especially when that prayer is said while standing quietly outside an abortion mill.

For one thing, as Jesus taught us when he went off on his own to pray to the Father, we can evangelize simply through our example. The presence of silent witnesses to the dignity and value of each and every human life can speak volumes.

For another, our presence offers us the opportunity for further evangelization, should our silent witness draw the attention of those suffering mothers who felt compelled to seek such an extreme solution. We can offer Miraculous Medals, Rosaries, and even a phone number to contact us if they feel the desire to talk. By doing this, we can show that we will be there for them when they need us.

Another of the works of the Legion is Pro Life Lectures. See “Right-to-life lectures: Legionaries may give lectures in support of the pro-life cause at schools, workshops, etc.” in Our Approved Activities. The Legion also helps to organize spiritual pro life activities. For example, to recruit for, and conduct Parish Holy Hours of reparation. See Maria Legionis article on Pro Life.
