Good Friday services

Eucharistic Procession in Milwaukee - In Milwaukee, Bishop Donald Hying led the first-ever Eucharistic Procession to the doors of the Affiliated Medical Services abortion clinic in Milwaukee. Pro-lifers of all ages accompanied the Bishop, praying fervently for the end of abortion in Milwaukee and around the world.

40 Days for Life Closing Ceremonies - Pro-Life Wisconsin’s affiliates throughout the state held closing ceremonies for their 40 Days for Life vigils this past weekend. In Stevens Point, our activist of the year Jen Dunnet led dozens of pro-lifers in a closing ceremony.

At 3-4 pm on Good Friday, please come to Franciscan-Mayo hospital to pray for the defense of innocent human life.  We will pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet, the Stations of the Cross, and the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary.  The Relic Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe will be present- the Image that was touched to the original Sacred Tilma of St. Juan Diego and blessed by Cardinal Carrera of Mexico City.  We will meet to pray on the public sidewalk in front of the hospital. Pro-life signs are welcome.

“We will stand up every time that human life is threatened. When the sacredness of life before birth is attacked, we will stand up and proclaim that no one ever has the authority to destroy unborn life.”

(Homily by Blessed John Paul II on the Capitol Mall, Washington, D.C., October 7, 1979 )

Bp. Morlino: We live in a world of tension
I reflect upon it though, because it’s actually the tension in which we live day-in and day-out.

For us, Christ’s life, His passion, His death, and His raising to new life all are present at once.

We continue to experience the crosses of our own life: we continue to experience the results of Original Sin and our own sins, and we continue to experience suffering and death -- even as we rejoice at knowing that Jesus Christ conquered sin and suffering and death.

It is that constant tension of Christ’s victory being “already accomplished,” but “not yet.”

We are called to reflect on this reality day-in and day-out, but we do so especially on Sundays each week, and we do so at no other time like we do at the Easter Vigil.
