This fall Epiphany is adopting Wednesday October 11 as our day to have pray supporters at Planned Parenthood from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Our goal is to have every hour covered with at least 2 persons praying on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood.
Sign-ups are after every Mass, for two weekends: Saturday September 30 and Sunday October 1; Saturday October 7 and Sunday October 8.
Our Minnesota had a 20% increase in abortions last year. The Land-of-10,000 Lakes unfortunately is also the land-of-12,000 aborted children. Our lawmakers do not seem to understand that the Epiphany Parishioners do not want this extremism. Plan to attend the “Save the 12,000” meeting, in the Cafeteria, at 6:30 p.m. Sunday October 29. You will learn more about our horrible MN laws and what we need to do.
By 8 weeks the embryo grows to 1/2 an inch, the major muscles system develops and she moves gracefully like a good swimmer although you can’t feel it yet.
This tiny human is perfectly developed with long, tapering fingers, feet and toes and whose skin is almost transparent with a highway of delicate arteries and veins visible to the ends of the fingers.
By 10 weeks, 20 tiny baby teeth are forming in the gums, she squints, swallows, moves her tongue, and if you stroke her palm, will make a tight fist. The toes will develop in the next few days and brain waves can be measured and she will react to loud noises.
Did ya know?
By nine weeks the developing baby can hiccup and react to load noises. This might explain why I still hiccup at loud concerts

My Lord Jesus, through the intercession of Your Blessed Mother Mary who gave birth to You out of love, and through the intercession of St Joseph, the man of faith who cared for You after Your Birth, I turn to You on behalf of this conceived child who has been Spiritually Adopted by me and who is threatened by abortion.
