Today is the Feast of Our Lady, Mother of Good Counsel, which is the 50th anniversary of the last day in Britain when it was illegal to perform abortions.
Tomorrow, Friday 27th April, is the 50th anniversary of the abortion act coming in to effect. Since then, 9 million babies have been aborted in the United Kingdom. On Saturday the 28th April it is the Feast of St Louis Marie de Montfort, and we are asking all of our supporters to make his act of consecration to Jesus, through Mary (see below).If you have not done the recommended 33 day preparation for this, please make the act of consecration anyway.
If you would like a free copy of the 33 day preparation booklet for future use, as it is recommended to make the consecration each year, please send us your postal address (UK only).
I'm very pleased to say that we have had a highly successful 9 day novena of Prayer and witness outside the abortion centre in Whitfield St, central London, with over 20 priests in attendance over those 9 days, as well as having Benediction offered at the site. If you would like to say the prayer to Our Lady, Mother of Good Counsel, on this her Feast day, please see here: www.goodcounselnet.co.uk/Our-Patron-Saints.html
