On Wednesday, May 21st, after the morning Mass at Saints Peter and Paul Church in Naperville, Father Peter West renewed the “Act of Entrustment,” and Our Lady headed towards the IVF clinic only a few streets away. Mr. Włodek Obruchta was driving the Life Mobile with Our Lady around the IVF clinic in circles, while a group of people gathered around Father West who led them in a pro-life Rosary.
Afterwards, Our Blessed Mother arrived at the Aurora clinic, which is the largest abortion mill in the state, and had been erected in 2007. Every Saturday morning, a Knight of Columbus from Ss. Peter and Paul Church prays there with his family and a group of fellow pro-lifers. All the churches in the area have their prayer duty they signed up for when the clinic first opened up. Because of that, there is always someone in front of the clinic praying, day and night. This prayerful presence was organized by the local pro-life group “Pro-Life Action League”. The US law allows for such a clinic to exist and makes it legal for the women to kill the unborn babies in their wombs. People are constantly praying because of that, trusting in God’s assistance. The presence of Our Lady in the Icon of Czestochowa gave the prayer warriors more strength and faith in the victory of life.
Just a few minutes further east, on New York Street, a group of parishioners from St. Elizabeth Seton Church in Naperville opened up a pro-life center for women, called “Waterleaf”. This center helps pregnant women in most difficult situations and saves numerous lives of unborn babies. Those gathered in front of the Aurora abortion clinic, prayed the Holy Rosary with Father Peter West for the intention of the closing of this great death mill and for the protection of the unborn.
At around 1:30 pm, Our Blessed Mother arrived at the abortion mill called “Advantage Clinic” in Wood Dale, IL. The Polish Mission of Divine Mercy in Lombard has surrounded this place with its prayers, especially with their presence every Wednesday. This resulted in the closing of the abortion center on Wednesdays, just recently. The pro-lifers from the Polish Mission had joined the group of American pro-lifers who had been praying here for a while already, and now they pray together. Together with Our Lady of Czestochowa in Her Icon, people were praying for more than two hours in front of this abortion mill with great faith and trust that with the help of Our Blessed Mother, this place, that kills children and hurts their mothers, will be shut down permanently. The Holy Rosary prayer was led by Father West, who prayed the Our Father in Polish due to the large presence of the Polish faithful, even though he is an Irish American who does not speak Polish. Nevertheless, he recited the Our Father flawlessly.
