Nothing is Impossible

I had the singular opportunity to hear David Bereit speak on Monday at a local parish.

He is the national director of the 40 Days for Life campaign.

His simple message, passionately delivered, built to a rousing crescendo.

With God, all things are possible. Abortion will end as all injustices end.

But they end because the just humble themselves and kneel and ask for God's healing.

"You might be the only Bible anyone ever reads.
You might be the only church they walk into.
There are people that need to hear the truth and
you might be the only person they will hear it from."

Mr. Bereit's speech was full of such compelling statements.

Well, as we learn today, nothing is impossible. Mary did not know man.

Yet, she would conceive and bear the Son of God. Nothing is impossible.

David Bereit began his speech referencing 1964 when Martin Luther King met with President Johnson in person and asked for his passage of the Civil Rights Act. The president told him it was impossible; it would have to wait until people were ready.

Three months later, he was urging Congress to sign into law black suffrage, an event that culminated five months after that.

Mr. Bereit closed by asking us to dream of that great day when our grandchildren are reading their history textbooks and come to the page about the end of abortion in this country, just as we read about the end of slavery. They will ask us how it was possible for anyone to think it was right to kill innocent children in the womb. Then they will ask us what we did.

When we tell them, we did everything we could, they will be so proud of us.

Can we bring about an end to Abortion?

Yes we can!

Can we bring about Change?

Yes we can!

Can we do all things through Christ who strengthens us?

Yes we can!

Just as Mary gave her Yes to God, so may we give our Yes to our children and our children's children. Let us give them a future filled with audacious hope.
