Message from Msgr. Reilly Msgr Philip Reilly on EWTN Sunday Night Live
“The Helpers’ Apostolate is now doubly blessed to have the support of the prayers not only of the Precious Blood Contemplatives but also the Contemplatives of the Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matara who, since Christmas 2011, are living here and sharing the Monastery with Precious Blood Nuns. Why are the prayers of these good nuns and the prayers of those who pray and fast monthly at the Helpers Vigils for Life or weekly or even daily at the abortion sites so important? We must not forget that the Late Pope John Paul II in section 100 of the Encyclical the “Gospel of Life” reminded each of us that Jesus Himself has shown us by His own example that prayer and fasting are the most effective weapons against the forces of evil. The Pope then challenged each of us when he said that “a great prayer for life is urgently needed, a prayer which will rise up throughout the world that God will use to break down the walls of lies and deceit that conceal from the sight of so many, the evil of the laws and practices which are hostile to life.” Be not afraid to fulfill this challenging mission by going in prayer and fasting into the Public Square.”
