Life at Saint Peter Chanel’s

Unborn Jesus Holy Hour

Wednesday the 16th of June was not a ordinary adoration day at Saint Peter Chanel in Hawaiian Gardens, California. A religious class was being given at the side building next to the Church at the same time the Unborn Jesus Adoration group gathered for Holy Hour. Many of the members were taking the class and consequently, the group was unusually small. Then unexpectedly, about 16 or more young people entered the church and sat at the front. They were all uniformed in red sweats and had an emblem of a black shield with a white rampant lion on their chests. The back displayed the message “You cannot be Catholic and pro-abortion.” The regular members might have been surprised since God had provided these bold young men and women to fill our pews as we dedicated a holy Hour to the Unborn Child Jesus. Earlier in the week, the Crusaders for Life team arrived at Saint Peter and Paul in Wilmington to be stationed there during their pro-life activities in Los Angeles. They are participating in a long walk from San Diego to San Francisco, following the footsteps foot-steps of Blessed Junipero Sierra on a Mission trail. They also spend some time praying in front of abortion clinics as they encounter them in their path and organizing peaceful protests to those Catholics who are in politics but support abortion.
I was helping Ana and her friends to raise funds for her trip to the World Youth Fest when Ana ran outside as she spotted their trailer arriving at the Saint Peter and Paul’s parking lot. I also ran to meet our new visitors. I was impressed with them and so was Ana. I invited them to attend an Our Lady of Fatima event on Monday, June the 13th, at Saint Gerard Majella in Culver City and also to the Unborn Jesus Holy Hour at Saint Peter Chanel on Wednesday, June the 16th. Father Martin, the Pastor of Saint Gerard was impressed with our visitors. He allowed them to speak to the congregation about their pro-life mission at the end of Our Lady’s event. Father Larry, the pastor of Saint Peter Chanel came in person to the parking lot to great the visitors and gave them a blessing. I do not know if it was originally planned that way, but it was he who gave us the Benediction after the Unborn Jesus Holy Hour that Wednesday the 16th. Father Peter invited the Crusaders for a Barbeque at the new John Paul the II garden at Saint Peter and Paul. Ana was in charge and directed us on how we shall contribute to this assignment. I took an opportunity to offer them Unborn Jesus pins. Their enthusiasm helped in affirming our mission on promoting awareness of Jesus in the Womb. Saturday was the last time I saw them when I joined in prayer in front of a Planned Parenthood facility. I brought with me the Unborn Jesus Banner and as I joined their flanks, they cheered in joy to Our Lady of Guadalupe and her son, the Unborn Jesus.
Unborn Jesus
The Word was made flesh . . .  . . . and dwelt among us!
