As I’m sure you’re aware, the annual GK Chesterton walking pilgrimage stops on it’s gruelling 27 mile, one day walk, to pray outside an abortion ‘clinic’ Ealing. The Good Counsel Network organise a daily prayer vigil there, and many lives have been saved through their peaceful, public, pro-life witness. Many of the mothers who change their minds and keep their babies do so because The Good Counsel Network offers them practical help and support.
Here you can see a short video featuring one of these mothers:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCw-CqRb1UIuD8-me5XQXxg
You could think that this video has nothing to do with GK Chesterton, but as the mother says in the video, she met Rachel outside the ‘clinic’. Not only has Rachel been on the GK Chesterton pilgrimage, but she in fact met us outside the said ‘clinic’ and walked the rest of the way to GK Chesterton’s grave and prayed there. During the mother’s pregnancy, there were a number of health concerns for which a number of us prayed to Chesterton, and all was fine, and then to cap it all, twins were born on a date very strongly connected with Chesterton.
Please do watch the short video, and consider coming on the Chesterton pilgrimage and to a pro-life vigil, especially as there are attempt afoot to ban such life-saving initiatives with buffer zones.
