As we know the Fight for Marriage, Sanctity of Life from Conception and the latest Euthanasia consultation are still with us and the battle has to go on.
Therefore the Knights of St Columba have organised a “Chain of Prayer” carrying on the theme, “Our Christian Values – Under Attack”
We call upon you our fellow Brothers and Sisters in Christ to join the Knights of St Columba in this “Chain of Prayer”.
We will be praying that our politicians heed the message of faith, to Uphold Human Life from Conception to the Grave and Defend the Sanctity of Marriage between a Man and a Woman.
It will consist of each local Council, where possible, organising or joining the congregation of a local parish in celebrating at least one Mass for the above intention during the period from the Feast of St Columba (9th June) until the opening Mass of Supreme Council in October.
It will be launched at three seperate venues across Britain on the weekend of the Feast of St Columba.
**Friday 8th June in St Columbas Church Glasgow. 7.30pm Celebrated by Archbishop Conti
Saturday 9th June, Cardiff Cathedral
Sunday 10th June Aylesford Priory

Although we concentrate almost solely on abortion on this blog, there are other issues that are intrinsically linked to the whole issue of life and euthanasia is one of them. As prolifers we need to be clear on the arguments against euthanasia and abortion because people who are fighting to legalise abortion often want euthanasia legalized aswell. Similar reasons in terms of choice, freedom and rights are put forward.
Instead of going through the arguments here we’ve included a recent interview by a brilliant pro-life speaker, Alison Davis who was on the side of the right to die for many years. She is eloquent and moving in how she explains how she gradually moved to a position of the right to life.

As the election approaches, Archbishop Mario Conti of Glasgow and Bishop Philip Tartaglia of Paisley have both issued pastoral letters emphasising the need to vote in line with our faith, especially on issues such like the defence of human life, marriage, family and religious freedom. It’s very difficult at the moment to find candidates who’re clearly and unashamedly pro-life, so it’s important to really think and reflect on how we best use our votes.
Archbishops Conti’s letter can be accessed here.
Bishop Tartaglia’s letter can be accessed here.
