.- While pro-life supporters nationwide fight for the life of brain-damaged Terri Schiavo, whose feeding tube is scheduled to be removed March 18th, New York’s Franciscan Friars of the Renewal are staging a different kind of campaign.

The Yonkers chapter of the New York City-based order has started a prayer campaign asking for the intercession of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.

With Archbishop Sheen’s help, the Friars are hoping for a miracle.

Father Andrew Apostoli C.F.R., one of the friars, said that “the late Archbishop’s TV show was called Life is Worth Living, and believed very strongly in the value of every life, but the opponents to Terri Shiavo do not think that her life is worth living.”

A Florida judge recently ruled in favor of Terri’s husband, Michael Shiavo who plans to remove the feeding tube, which gives food and hydration to his wife.

Terri’s family and other pro-life leaders are racing the clock to find a way to appeal the decision and save 41-year old Schiavo from starvation.

The Friars are asking that anyone who wishes to join them pray the following prayer:

Eternal Father, You alone grant us every blessing in Heaven and on earth, through the redemptive mission of Your Divine Son, Jesus Christ, and by the working of the Holy Spirit.  If it be according to Your Will, glorify Your servant, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, by granting the favor I now request through his powerful intercession.  Lord, grant that Terri Shiavo’s life be spared and grant her a healing that the world may know the value of every life.
