DIY Abortions, Make The First Five Saturdays and Fast on Monday

On Wednesday the House of Commons voted to make DIY abortions at home a permanent feature in English law. The Welsh government had already decided to do this in Wales. The Bill to do this will now go back to the House of Lords on Tuesday 5th April, where we are informed that it cannot be defeated as the amendment to allow the continuation of the abortions at home originated in the House of Lords. However, we must remember that all things are possible with God. The DIY abortions that were brought in during the corona virus pandemic have been truly horrendous. More than 10,000 women have needed hospital treatment after their abortion.

Our Lady of Fatima asked all Catholics to practice the Devotion of making the First Five Saturdays. Saturday 2nd April is a first Saturday and would be a good time to start this devotion, if you are not already in the middle of it. This devotion consists of going to Confession (you can go to Confession within 8 days of the first Saturday, which would still fulfil the requirements), receiving Holy Communion, saying the Rosary, and spending 15 minutes separately meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, and doing all of this in a spirit of reparation for the sins against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Also on Monday 4th April, we are asking you to pray and fast as much as you can, all day in reparation for the votes that have already taken place and calling on God to defeat this Bill in His way. Monday 4th April is the Feast of  Saint Francisco Marto, who was one of the three shepherd children to see Our Lady in Fatima, Portugal in 1917.

It would be good for you to watch or read Natalia’s story of her DIY abortion https://www.marchforlife.co.uk/2021/02/24/my-diy-abortion-natalias-story/
