Mass In Front Of A Planned Parenthood
Father Joseph Hearty of the Archdiocese of Denver helped cap off this Lent's 40 Days for Life with a Mass in front of the Denver Planned Parenthood. News of this, as well as the picture above, comes from Lifesite News.
This is so very appropriate for many reasons. The Mass is our highest form of prayer, with the Eucharist as both source and summit of our lives. Many of us who are out there know that we are in front of a type of calvary. That was made all the more present and efficacious in Denver as the Sacrifice of Holy Mass was offered. By God's providence, the parking lot across the street from the Planned Parenthood Hell Hole is owned by a pro-life couple, who graciously allowed its usage by the pro-lifers.
Also take note that this Mass was offered in the Extraordinary Form. Other Masses have occurred in the parking lot. I know of Masses said in places adjacent to abortuaries in this area and am told of the spiritual effects of the Masses.
God bless Father Hearty and the other Denver priests for undertaking this. I hope this occurs in many more areas of the country.
