“I Urge Every Member”

I urge every member of the Archdiocese of Kansas City to join the Kansas Rosary Crusade by praying the Rosary every Thursday for the passage of a State Constitutional Amendment making it crystal clear there is “no right to abortion” in the Kansas Constitution. This Constitutional Amendment is necessary because of a ruling by the Kansas State Supreme Court claiming to have discovered a right to abortion in the Kansas Constitution placing in jeopardy all previous legislation protecting unborn children and preventing the Kansas Legislature from increasing those protections in the future. This Amendment will restore to all Kansans their right through their elected representatives to determine abortion public policy for our State. Please join with Catholic Kansans from every corner of our State in praying for the passage of a State Constitutional Amendment.  The rosary is a powerful prayer invoking the intercession of our Blessed Mother, Our Lady of Life, to help us protect the lives of innocent children. Through our prayer, we also seek Mary’s intercession to help us surround mothers experiencing an untimely pregnancy with support and assistance to choose life for the child in their womb. If you already pray the rosary daily, please include on Thursday an intention for passage of the Constitutional Amendment. If you are not in the habit of praying the rosary, please begin at least on Thursdays to pray this beautiful devotion through which Mary draws us closer to her Son. Just as Our Lady of Guadalupe was instrumental in ending human sacrifice in Mexico almost 500 years ago let us ask Mary to intercede for the success of our efforts today to protect in Kansas the lives of innocent unborn children.

Join the Crusade

Thanks for doing your part. Mary will do hers.
