Pray for Ireland

A request from an Irish blog reader ...

***

Please pray for Ireland. This Friday, May 25th 2018. The people or Ireland are being asked to vote "Yes" or "No" to abortion in a referendum on our constitution. Ireland needs prayers. Many if not most most American Catholics can trace their faith back to an Irish ancestor. Ireland needs prayers, rosaries, Masses, sacrifices and most of all fasting for this Friday to protect us from abortion. Please ask your family, especially children, friends, priests, bishops, religious, and all Christian faithful and people of good will to pray for Ireland  (and, thinking of children, the "all the babies in Irish mummies' tummies"

Voting Takes Place in Ireland on Friday 5/25/18 at these times:

Eastern: 2:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Central:  1:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Mountain: Midnight Thursday - 3:00 PM Friday.

Pacific: 11:00 PM Thursday - 2: PM Friday

Please pass this message on,

Thank you and God bless you.

Ireland without abortion is a jewel in the international pro-life movement because the United Nations has consistently ranked Ireland, (a modern, developed country) without abortion, to be about joint 6th out of 183 countries in the world for maternal health. This is better than the United States and Britain and gives American prolife campaigners proof to argue that legalized abortion does not help women's health rates. The "Yes" for abortion side has control of the national television service, all the national newspapers and all the national radio stations. Google have intervened in the voting process by shutting down and blocking all advertisements on the issue on YouTube, as these were benefiting the "No" abortion side. Misinformation, false information and lies are coming out faster than it is possible to correct them. Catholic schools are almost universally completely silent on the issue due to the stifling secular atmosphere. Hearts are being mislead and hardened. Prayer and Grace can soften them. Please offer prayers to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus, on whom the Irish people have relied for centuries.

Please pass this message on,

God bless you.
