As community leaders, you are in a unique position to encourage your federal elected representatives. Please take a moment to remind your members that this much-needed, common-sense legislation will clarify federal law and ensure that those who provide health care and health coverage can continue to do so without being forced by government to help destroy innocent unborn children.
There are several ways to make your voice heard. First, a quick click will send an email or tweet to your members. Second, please take a moment during August to call or meet with your representative and two senators to let them know we expect them to protect our most cherished liberties by supporting the CPA. A suggested phone or meeting script can be found by clicking on the phone icon in the action alert. It looks like this:
Also, you can learn your members' district office phone number by looking it up here. This is also where you will find staff and contact information for the district office. Armed with that information it is easy to call and request an appointment with the district staff member responsible for health care issues.
August is often also "Town Hall Meeting Season" in many districts. Be sure and attend if your member is hosting an open forum! Remember, fuller background information on this legislation is available in the legislative reports section of HumanLifeAction.org, which includes several fact sheets like the one attached.
After you meet with your members or their district office staffers, feel free to drop me a note at email@example.com and let me know how it went!
Finally, let's stay connected on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can find us on all three platforms. Spreading this call to action is as easy as sharing our posts to your page.
Thank you for standing with us as we strive to build a culture of life in law. Let's get the CPA enacted!

How can we protect our children when we don't respect life?
I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts.--Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God, obeying his voice, and holding fast to him. For that will mean life for you, a long life for you to live on the land which the LORD swore to your ancestors, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give to them. Dt 30:19-20
Let us Pray: Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
LOVE is to will the good of the other.
Whom you would change, you must first love
and they must know that you love them. Martin Luther King
AND WE DO!
please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Come
and experience the
mercy of God!
Intercession: May all who suffer after abortion receive peace through Christ's Sacred Heart.
Prayers: Our Father, 3 Hail Mary's, Glory Be
Reflection: Recalling our sins, we may feel discouraged and fearful of approaching God. However, we can cling to the truth that Christ's Passion on the Cross did not end in death, but in the joy of the Resurrection. The power of the Resurrection gives us the courage to face our sins, confess our mistakes, and then humbly receive God's forgiveness and accept the joy that comes with new life in Christ.
As we celebrate the Sunday of Divine Mercy this weekend and continue our journey through this Easter season, let us reflect upon the profound and transformative gift of God's mercy in our lives. May the infinite depth and breadth of Christ's Divine Mercy remind us that no wound is too great for God to heal. Acts of Reparation (choose one)
One Step Further
If a friend confided that she had an abortion, would you be able to respond in a way that brings her closer to healing? "How to Talk to a Friend Who's Had an Abortion" gives suggestions for how you can be a channel of God's mercy.
“For a day, just for one day, talk about that which disturbs no one and bring some peace into your Beautiful eyes.”
Shams-al-Din Mohammad Hafez, 14th-century Persian mystic and poet
"O God, your only begotten Son's life, death and resurrection purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, Grant, we beseech Thee, that while meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may both imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise; through the same Christ our Lord, Amen."

Say one Our Father in honor of each of the following leading Angels: St. Michael, St. Gabriel, St. Raphael and our Guardian Angel.
O glorious prince St. Michael, chief and commander of the heavenly hosts, guardian of souls, vanquisher of rebel spirits, servant in the house of the Divine King and our admirable conductor, you who shine with excellence and superhuman virtue deliver us from all evil, who turn to you with confidence and enable us by your gracious protection to serve God more and more faithfully every day.

VocationsPrayer of the Month:
O Divine Jesus, Who taught us to pray to the Lord of the harvest, that He send forth laborers into His fields, be pleased to raise up in the Church, and in particular in the Diocese of Pueblo, many holy priests and religious, to work according to the intentions of Your Heart, and to procure by their ministry, the salvation of souls and the glory of Your Father. And if it should please you, O Lord, to choose one such from our family, praying before You at this moment, we would thank You with all of our hearts, on this earth and for all eternity. Amen.

WHAT KINDS OF PEOPLE become priests, sisters or brothers? Are they people who don't relate well with other people? No. They are people who love others - people who find real satisfaction chatting with a 93-year-old parishioner, holding the hand of a cancer patient, listening to the troubles of a streetwise teen. They are people with the courage to touch lives, hearts and souls in a high-tech, unchurched world. Are you that kind of person? Pray for "Yes" response to God's call.
Thinking of the Priesthood
all, let your love for one another be intense, because
love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one
another without complaining. As each one has
received a gift, use it to serve one another as good
stewards of God's varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it
be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with
the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God
may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong
glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen

You have been told, O mortal, what is good, and what the LORD requires of you:
Only to do justice and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8
