I hope Lent is going well for you! Happy Friday in Lent! I wanted to touch on a tangible way to combat some of the evil which is going on in our country (and in the world). This website is for reparation and prayer but we can take it a step further. Below are a couple of ways.
If we are poking our heads into the news this Lent, we have seen "Catholic" politicians donned with their Ash Wednesday ashes. These politicians are promoting and standing for abortion, infanticide, same sex "marriage" and the like. We can not stand back and watch. There are organizations fighting against these. I have posted two below that you may already be involved in or wish to be.
I have posted a recent letter from TFP - Tradition Family Property for you to review. Their Student Action brings forward different attacks on Mother Church and asks us to sign petitions. This has been helpful. I have posted a link to their site as well as this latest letter asking for a signature so that you may also sign and get on their mailing list (if not already) to make a difference.
Also, the ACLJ - American Center for Law and Justice has done amazing things to combat the devil in this country. It is worth donating to because they are truly helping - Again - I have posted a letter and a link to their site.
Make this a holy Lent - Give alms where evil will be combated. God bless all!

A federal appeals court just delivered a stunning blow to Planned Parenthood.
In a remarkable 11 to 6 decision, the entire 6th Circuit Court of Appeals set a precedent allowing states to defund Planned Parenthood.
This is a blistering defeat for Planned Parenthood and its seemingly unlimited stream of taxpayer funding. The court agreed with the arguments we made in our amicus brief - that Planned Parenthood does not have a constitutional right to our tax dollars.
Planned Parenthood performs over 300,000 abortions a year - that's more than 900 a day.
This is on the heels of our major legal victory before a judge in New York (the same state that expanded abortion to the moment of birth), stopping the abortion lobby's attempt to shut down pro-life pregnancy centers. Next, we're preparing a lawsuit against New York about its expansive abortion law.
Now, more than 20 states have filed a lawsuit against a federal rule that would defund $60 million more of Planned Parenthood's taxpayer funding. We're preparing a critical amicus brief in this case to defund the abortion giant.
We can win. We are beating Planned Parenthood, but we urgently need your support. Have your gift DOUBLED today through our Matching Challenge. Chip in $5 and it becomes $10; $20 becomes $40.
Have Your Gift Doubled to Defeat Planned Parenthood in Court.
