Divine Mercy Celebration in Indianapolis

Our Lord's words to St. Faustina regarding His image
Our Lord speaks:
"Paint an image according to the pattern you see, with the signature: Jesus, I trust in You. I desire that this image be venerated, first in your chapel, and then throughout the world." "I promise that the soul that will venerate this image will not parish. I promise victory over its enemies already here on earth, especially at the hour of death, I Myself will defend it as My own glory." (Diary of St. Faustina, #47 & #48)

"I am the King of Mercy . . . I desire that this image be displayed in public on the first Sunday after Easter. That Sunday is the Feast of Mercy." (Diary of St. Faustina #88)

"I want this image . . . to be solemnly blessed on the first Sunday after Easter, that Sunday is to be the Feast of Mercy." (Diary of St. Faustina #49) 

Divine Mercy Sunday will be celebrated today by Monsignor Joseph F. Schaedel, V.G. at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in Indianapolis. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will be from 2:00-3:00 P.M. with the Divine Mercy Celebration and recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet following.

Rebecca Kiessling's story of being conceived in rape and nearly aborted at two back-alley abortions. Information for having Rebecca as a Pro-Life Speaker at your crisis pregnancy center banquet, right to life fundraiser, church, Students for Life event, school, or rally.

We've all heard someone say:  "I'm pro-life, well, except in cases of rape . . ." or "I'm pro-choice, especially in cases of rape !"

Have you ever considered how really insulting it is to say to someone, "I think your mother should have been able to abort you."?  It's like saying, "If I had my way, you'd be dead right now."  And that is the reality with which I live every time someone says they are pro-choice or pro-life "except in cases of rape" because I absolutely would have been aborted if it had been legal in Michigan when I was an unborn child, and I can tell you that it hurts.  More

Rebecca Kiessling will be the keynote speaker at the Indianapolis March and Rally for Life in January 2011, more details will follow as they develop.

The 2010 Archdiocesan Sanctity of Life Dinner

The 2010 Archdiocesan Sanctity of Life Dinner
is just around the corner!

Tables are filling up quickly for this year’s Archdiocesan Office for Pro-Life Ministry Sanctity of Life Dinner.  Be sure to get your reservations while seats are still available.  Learn how you can be part of the mission and ministry of the Office for Pro-Life Ministry offering service to poor women and children and to those suffering pain and trauma from decisions made while feeling desperate, alone and without life-giving choices. Read the following for more information.
The 2010 Archdiocesan Sanctity of Life Dinner promises to be the best ever with our featured speaker Jill Stanek, RN. Jill worked at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn , Ill. , as a registered nurse in the Labor and Delivery Department. Stanek discovered that the hospital staff was aborting babies in the second trimester. Hear the amazing story of how she retrieved, cradled and rocked an aborted Down’s syndrome baby who had been discarded in the Soiled Utility Room. After battling with the hospital, Stanek was fired on Aug. 31, 2001. Her life has never been the same.
At this year’s Sanctity of Life Dinner you will enjoy a lovely meal served at the beautiful Riverwalk Banquet Center , after which the Office for Pro-Life Ministry will present awards to 5 individuals who have shown outstanding service and sacrifice as volunteers in various pro-life ministries provided by the Pro-Life Office .
