"The world is not changed by giving into it, but by the saint the contradicts it the most" -G.K. Chesterton
Hi Shawn, I just saw the article about your prayer campaign on Women of Grace breaking news: “Just a Simple Girl” Launches National Day of Prayer for MarriageI think this is a great idea. It is up to us the laity to take the lead. It has to be said that unfortunately, we have not had the leadership from our bishops that we would expect on such an important and fundamental issue as marriage. Please, let me know how I can help. I will start right away by writing an article about the National Day of Prayer for Marriage.I have written many articles on the subject of marriage at my PublicVigil blog. The one that I would most recommend echoes your inspiration that St. John the Baptist is calling us to defend marriage with our lives as he did. Here is the link and a short excerpt: "More on marriage"+++I suppose it is appropriate that the "homosexual marriage" law passed in New York on the feast of St. John the Baptist. The price John the Baptist paid for defending the sanctity of marriage was his head. What price are today's Christians willing to pay to denounce this abomination to God? Will you give up your job or your business to defend the principle of marriage between one man and one woman? Are you willing to face public ridicule and persecution? How will you protect your children from the onslaught of vicious propaganda from the public school system in favor of "homosexual marriage" and against Christianity?+++

Hi Shawn, I just published an article announcing the National Day of Prayer for Marriage on August 29. Here's a link: National Day of Prayer for Marriage - Aug 29It consists mostly of quotes from Susan Brinkmann's article at the Women of Grace website because I think she did such a marvelous job of writing up this story.Hey, its too bad you aren't in Michele Bachmann's district. But even so, I think she might support this effort. Is there anyone you know that might be connected to her campaign?[I reposted this comment because of broken link.]
