An email from Fr Thady Doyle of God's Cottage, Wicklow, received today Dear Friends Earlier today I received the following email from Eddie Stones ”Dear Fr. Thady. “We are in the middle of a fierce battle. “Last night in prayer I received these words and images concerning the Referendum to repeal the 8th Amendment. The provision in our Constitution which provides legal protection for unborn babies and protects both Mother's and Babies. "The scales are in balance" “Image of weighing Scales: Baby in white on one side and something else on the other, but evenly balanced. “We need a lot of prayer (and fasting) “God bless. Eddie” This message is consistent with what I have experienced in my spirit for the last 6 weeks If enough people truly pray, including focused prayer like on tonight’s debate If enough people fast, If enough people make sacrifices, If enough people respond to the Lord and do the simple practical things, Then we can win. ALSO Dear Friends I awoke just now, 4.15 am, to the words, "Help get the vote out" The phrase "Help get the vote out" kept repeating until I felt I had to get up and send this email. It is likely that the vote on Friday will be around 60%, or possibly even 50%. So around 40% won't vote. Thus it all depends on who actually votes. We have just 2 days now to do our bit. Are their people in your area who may need a lift? Also be aware, 1. In some homes, the car owner will be a voting for abortion. He or she may somehow 'forget' or even refuse to bring family members who wish to vote 'no' to the polls. Try to be in touch with as many people as possible so that if they need a lift, they will contact you. 2. Then there are those who will only vote if they get last minute encouragement. Some may not be bothered to vote, others may just be having a bad day. So on Friday, do contact as many friends as possible to give them last minute encouragement. 3. There are some who will remain undecided right up until Friday. Their vote may well be swung by the last person that they speak to. In my email last night, as well as prayer, fasting and sacrifice, I urged the doing of the simple practical things to respond to God's desire that we prevent the legalizing of abortion. This is the key practical thing that we are now called to do. So "Help get the vote out" Fr. Thady PS Please circulate this message in any way you possibly can.
