Help Save The Babies Now !

The Good Counsel Network does an amazing job of counselling women who are thinking of having an abortion, for whatever reason. It puts up adverts in underground stations, and these are not cheap. It also provides material support for women who would otherwise see an abortion as the only way to survive. This is also not cheap. The Network sends out letters asking supporters for donations to help meet the bills. The postage costs money too...

This month things are so incredibly tight financially that the Good Counsel Network is unable to send out all the fundraising appeal letters...

It desperately needs to raise £2,500 just to make ends meet. People are doing sponsored walks, and other activities, but more help is needed now.

If you are in a position to help financially, please consider giving money to this very worthwhile cause. By doing so, there is absolutely no doubt that you will help to save the lives of unborn children.

Things are difficult financially for many people at the moment - if you are unable to help materially, then please, please, help with prayer.

Pray the novena to St. Philomena that the funds will be raised to help the Good Counsel Network continue its life-saving work.

Novena Prayer to St Philomena

O Faithful Virgin and Glorious Martyr, St Philomena, who works so many miracles on behalf of the poor and sorrowing, have pity on me. Thou knowest the multitude and diversity of my needs. Behold me at thy feet, full of misery, but full of hope. I entreat thy charity, O great Saint! Graciously hear me and obtain from God a favourable answer to the request which I now humbly lay before thee – that Good Counsel may raise the money it needs and that as many lives as possible will be saved through their work (add your own intentions). I am firmly convinced that through thy merits, through the scorn, the sufferings and the death thou didst endure, united to the merits of the passion and death of Jesus, thy spouse, I shall obtain what I ask of thee, and in the joy of my heart I will bless God, who is admirable in His Saints. Amen.

I received an email story (probably apocraphil) about a doctor visited by a young mother with a 9 month old baby. She said to the doctor that she was pregnant again & couldn't cope. The doctor asked how he could help. She responded by asking for a termination of her pregnancy. The doctor thought for a while then suggested a safer method for her. He would kill her present child then she could go on to have her new baby. The woman was horrified & said that you couldn't just kill children.
The doctor looked at her & smiled as she realised that this was precisely what a termination (ABORTION) does - it kills a child!

Thanks so much for posting this, Mulier Fortis. God bless you always.

Please St. Philomena, the Wonder Worker, let a Big donation come into Good Counsel.

last month I decided to give the money which I would normally hand over for St. Anthonys Bread to The Good Councel Network for Maria Stops Abortion. I sent around £60 and a note saying would you please acknowledge the cheque payment and let me know when the ads on the tube network were going to be advertised? I did not hear anything from them for three weeks so I decided to phone them. The guy said we don't know anything about this. I will call you back. Three phone calls later (which I could have done without) he said yes we received a cheque thanks very much. I told him this is the first time I supported them so it would have been nice to have had a proper written Thank you at the very least. He got the message and eventually something arrived scribbled on a compliment slip. To say nothing of info about the ads on the tube. I am still waiting for this to materialise. I am currently unemployed I don't have vast sums to give away. The small amount I gave was not appreciated. I thought it was very inconsiderate of them and extremely sloppy towards my donation. I will not give them a penny again. You can pass this on their management team. I am sticking to St. Anthony next time.
Unfortunately, we live in an age where its all take take take and thank you is not a word you hear very often.
