Bp. Ricken asks for intercession of the Holy Innocents in pro-life cause, 200+ attend Appleton prayer vigil

Last Saturday, we celebrated a daily Mass at St. Pius X Church in Appleton and then proceeded to pray in front of the Planned Parenthood clinic in Grand Chute, where abortions are performed on a regular basis. There was a very large turnout, more than 200 people. I asked everyone to bring love into the situation. Our mantra was and is “Jesus loves you. We love you. This place is not the answer.” We are not going to condemn those who have gotten involved with this in any way, but we are here to point out the mercy and love of God available to all of us. Divine Mercy consoles and purifies our hearts.

I asked the people to pray to the Holy Innocents to intercede from heaven to close down that place. We pray to the Holy Innocents of Jesus’ day, who were slain because King Herod ordered the slaughter in order to kill Jesus. Did you realize that there have been 57 million abortions in this country since 1973? All of those innocent children are in the heavenly court. Can you imagine if even a fraction of those children intervene with God to change people’s hearts? We asked the Blessed Mother, Queen of Heaven, to send those holy innocents to intervene to close that “business” down.
