Group to coordinate 10,000 Masses for the unborn

.- The Memphis-based Saint Michael the Archangel Organization has announced that it is coordinating an effort to celebrate 10,000 Masses for unborn babies from January 13 to January 21.

Patrick Benedict, the president of the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization, said in a press release that the effort intends “to provide protection for innocent unborn babies.”

“Obviously, these babies cannot have Masses offered for themselves. But, people like myself can have Masses offered, and I am hoping many will choose to do exactly that.”

"There is no such thing as a 'choice' to kill an unborn baby," Benedict continued. "A person who murders an unborn baby, or a person who formally cooperates with that action, puts his soul at risk of being eternally separated from God. And that eternal separation from God is hell. This is a truth that needs to be repeated often."

Those who wish to participate in the effort may ask a priest to offer Mass for the protection of the unborn on dates ranging from January 13 to January 21, 2009. Participants should then register the date and location of the Mass by mail or e-mail with the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization, whose web site is located at www.SaintMichaelTheArchangelOrganization.org.
