WOODBRIDGE, N.J. –  As she left the abortion mill on Main Street with her mother, one young woman told Bill Draghi,  “I DIDN’T DO IT.”  She had changed her mind, and gratefully accepted literature on local crisis pregnancy clinics from Draghi, who prays the Rosary every day that the clinic is open for business. He counts his prayers on a string of beads that each cradle the image of a tiny, unborn baby and carries a silver crucifix to remind everyone in the clinic’s vicinity of God’s great love for us (John 3:16-17: For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.)

This latest change of heart happened during the first few weeks of the Spring 40 Days for Life Campaign, going on now through March 28. With prayers, fasting, vigils, and community outreach, the peaceful, worldwide campaign aims to turn hearts and minds away from the evil of abortion and toward choosing life.

Draghi’s story is not unique. Prayer warriors in Missouri participating in the latest 40 Days for Life campaign report an abortionist in Columbia QUIT! Other prayer warriors around the United States report abortionists at the clinic where they are praying CUT THEIR HOURS OF OPERATION! Another group of 40 Days for Life campaign participants prayed peacefully and fervently that the abortion facility would close the next day – and it did! “For nothing will be impossible for God.” – Angel Gabriel, who stands before God, to Mary, Luke 1:37

Pope Leo XIII ordered this prayer to be recited daily after Low Mass in all the churches throughout the Catholic world. However, this practice was almost completely swept away in the 1960s by liturgical changes made in the wake of Vatican Council II. Catholics in the pro-life movement have adopted this prayer.  – From the Web site Tradition in Action. For the long version of this beautiful prayer, visit their web site at http://www.traditioninaction.org/religious/b009rpMichael.htm 
The Catholics who pray at 220 Main Street recite the short version of the prayer three times every Saturday:
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle! Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.  May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
