The following comes from a June 8 post by the Helpers of Gods Precious Infants Sacramento:
Today surprisingly a young Planned Parenthood worker who has snubbed me countless times with dirty looks opened up her heart after I greeted her for the upteenth time.
I greeted her with a smile and ” hope you had a great lunch” conversation opener.
And it finally worked. My prayers were answered.
The worker smiled at me for the first time ever.
I was shocked!
I couldn’t believe my eyes!
In fact she even spoke to me.
“Not enough time to run all my errands, have lunch with my kids etc.,” she explained from a distance.
We chatted briefly, while she shared a little bit about her children.
We connected woman to woman, both agreeing that it is sad to see these young women having to face an unwanted pregnancy. I shared that I am here not to judge, but to offer support and an alternative to abortion.
I asked her how many children she had.
“Oh, I have three children and one of them is older and he was baptized as a baby. My younger two children have never been baptized and for some reason lately I have felt a desire to have them baptized. So I’m making plans to have the little ones baptized.”
“Wow, you are a great mom to do this for your children,” I said. I admitted that I too, had waited a while before I eventually got my youngest son baptized.
At this point, I generally offer a holy rosary but I forgot.
She then walks over closer to me and requests a rosary for herself.
I can’t take full credit for this change, but it some small way I believe God was revealing to me that our prayers are being answered.
I am delighted and know that even though the physical life of a baby was not saved today, God is truly saving souls.
Wow, what a beautiful story, thanks for sharing it! Made my day; keep up the great work and God’s blessings to you. Former Planned Parenthood clinic director turned pro-life activist and Catholic convert Abby Johnson constantly remind us that it is precisely actions like these from those who do sidewalk counseling and praying in front of abortion clinics are what is needed. Everyone should read her autobiography “Unplanned”. I learned from reading it that many PP workers are very caring, sincere people who work hard and truly believe that they are doing the right thing to help women in crisis. But of course they are gravely mistaken. There are many more such testimonies of people (check on YouTube) who have worked in the abortion…
We often forget that prayer can really work wonders. Lord help us to remember.
