Anyone passing by our church will undoubtedly have seen the ‘Cemetery of Innocents’ erected by those concerned and dedicated to the cause of Pro-Life.  The white crosses represent in some small fashion the millions of infants aborted since the abortion became legal.  As one of the signs along Broadview Road acknowledges—4,000 babies are sacrificed each day to the power of choice.

When we look at how long issues such as abortion and euthanasia have persisted, the cheapness of human life they promote, and the consequences of such actions in our society, it’s easy to ask ourselves, “What good will putting up crosses do?  We do all these things for Pro-Life and we never seem to make any headway.  Why bother?”

With regard to abortion, the Pro-Life movement has made progress.  This progress, no doubt, is the result of people’s prayers and untiring efforts on behalf of the unborn.  This goes to show that our persistent prayers and efforts on behalf of human life will bear fruit.  God only knows how many hearts are converted by just seeing displays such as the Cemetery of Innocents as well as posters and billboards on behalf of human life.  If even 1 life is spared; if one person contemplating abortion or euthanasia changes his or her mind because of our prayers and effort, it’s worth it.

We thank the Knights of Columbus Council #14406 who were a great help in the planning and erection of our display.  May God bless your efforts on behalf of those who are unable to speak for themselves!
