Nashville: Prayer vigil on January 22nd

Lay Dominicans in Nashville are praying for all the young people headed for Washington, D.C. There will also be a prayer vigil at The Women's Center at 419 Welshwood Drive, Nashville, TN 37211. They will be holding the prayerful vigil from 8 AM to 5 PM on Tuesday, January 22, 2013.

This is the 40th anniversary of the insidious Supreme Court ruling of Roe V. Wade that legalized the killing of 55 million babies in America. 

Join us for any amount of time you can......

From Jill Stanek Weekly....interesting ...

On January 22, abortion will have been legal throughout the United States for 40 years, leaving in its wake 55 million murdered babies.

The number 40 is significant, Biblically speaking. It is generally considered a period of testing.


The Flood lasted rained 40 days and 40 nights. Then Noah waited 40 days after the rain stopped before opening a window of the ark.
Moses was on Mt. Sinai with God for 40 days - twice.
The Israelites spent 40 years wandering in the Wilderness.
The Israelite spies searched out the Promised Land for 40 days.
Goliath threatened the Israelite army 40 days before David slayed him.
Elijah, strengthened by one angelic meal, traveled 40 days and 40 nights to Mt. Horeb (Sinai) to meet with God.
Jonah warned Ninevah they had 40 days to repent, and they did.
Jesus fasted for 40 days in the Wilderness.
Jesus appeared on earth after his resurrection for 40 days. As we pass this grave annual marker of the day the U.S. Supreme Court made its Roe v. Wade decision, let us strive ever harder end this atrocity, beginning first with prayer.
