Three 20-something women trying to figure out what it means to be lay, Catholic, and modern all at once.

He Listens, He Answers

The power of persistence and perseverance in prayer has once again been proven to us in this 40 Days for Life. High ranking director of a Texas Planned Parenthood, Abby Johnson, stepped down from her job, citing a 'change of heart' about abortion as her reasons after she witnessed an abortion on an ultrasound. Here's a snippet from Zenit:
Johnson, 29, worked for Planned Parenthood for eight years until she watched, by an ultrasound transmission, a fetus "crumple" as it was vacuumed from its mother last September.

On Oct. 6, she quit her job as the Bryan center director. She walked across the street to the Coalition for Life, a pro-life group that was at that time joined with cities across the nation in a 40 Days for Life campaign.
Ms. Johnson also mentioned that Planned Parenthood was putting pressure on its workers to get more abortions because they needed money. Wow. But Abby Johnson is not the only good news. Seven other abortion workers left and 542 lives were SAVED! And there's even more good news! Here it is from the story on Reuters:
In addition, a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Kalispell, Montana announced that it will close its doors on November 20, citing a decline in business as the reason for the closure. That clinic was the site of a 40 Days for Life prayer vigil this past spring.
Yes, my sisters, He answers us. Let's persevere in prayer and in praise of the Lord, Who has promised to remain with us until the end of the ages!

Yes, Ms. Johnson's resignation was big news here in Bryan/College Station. Our pastor even preached about it one day at daily mass.
