I’ve posted about my favorite ministry, The Gabriel Project, before. Now that we’re in that time of year again, when people get fired up about the despicable 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court ruling and demonstrate their opposition to abortion, I’d like to introduce you to a new website dedicated to the works of The Gabriel Project. The purpose of this website to help interested persons introduce, implement and execute The Gabriel Project in their geographical area. I hope you will take some time to check it out, give its contents some thought and spread the word.
An important attribute of this ministry is its significant potential to build the culture of life. We must embrace ways of being proactive rather than only reactive and The Gabriel Project offers us a most marvelous way.The presence of this ministry in a parish informs potential mothers of the help that will be available to them should they need it if one day they conceive a child – in some cases several years beforehand. The mind of a child reared in such a parish is formed to recognize the sanctity of the lives of other children still developing in the protection of their mothers’ wombs. What a wonderful gift for our children, especially considering the past 39 years of the culture of death.
This ministry gives us the opportunity not only to “be there” for pregnant mothers who are considering aborting their child, but also for pregnant mothers who never had the slightest temptation to consider such a horror – some of them because of their awareness of The Gabriel Project. And the more of the latter as years go by, the less there will be of the former. What good we can do if we choose to.
