Where Christ Can Be Found (and loved) This Christmas And ThroughOut The Year

The following article was written by Veteran Rockford pro-life witness Kevin Rilott. It was first published in the Rockford Pro-life Initiative. Some of you may recall the shocking video that detailed the happenings at the Rockford Abortion Facility.

One of the saddest lines in all of human history is “and there was no room for them in the inn.” Humanity could not find a place for it’s God and savior in the world that God Himself created.

In our city of Rockford we say weekly to approximately twenty of God’s children “there is no room for you in the inn of our hearts” and these twenty children’s lives are brutally destroyed at the Northern Illinois Woman’s Center.  We again reject the gift of God’s life and love.

During those days Mary set out and traveled to the hill country in haste to a town of Judah, where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. Luke 1:39-44

When we pray at the Rockford abortion mill we join the Blessed Virgin Mary as she visited her cousin Elizabeth by serving those who need us. We can be the cause of these forgotten and betrayed children’s joy as Mary and Jesus were for John the Baptist. Every aborted child will know when they reach the heart of God that they have experienced human love on this earth.  Someone cared enough to stand in the cold and pray for them, plead for their lives, and offer love and support to their mothers.

If here and now we stand publicly in solidarity with the unborn and their mothers in the endless eternity that all will face we will know every time we have prayed for and loved God’s precious infants in the womb we gave them cause to “leap for joy” in their mothers womb because they have experienced the love and presence of their Christian family at the place of their death in Rockford.

When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled: “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.” Matthew 2:16-18

Jesus was threatened with a “furious” attempt to kill Him when he was still in the womb and an infant. Herod mocked God and murdered innocent children and we see the same “furious” assult on God and innocent human life at the Rockford abortion mill with countless hate filed displays and signs mocking God and the murder of well over 50,000 of God’s children.

When Jesus and Mary were in danger St. Joseph listened to the Angel when he was told, “Rise, take the child and his mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you. Herod is going to search for the child to destroy him.” We join St. Joseph in His love and protection for an innocent child facing death and His mother every time we pray at the Rockford abortion mill.  Countless times the prayers and presence of Christians at the Northern Illinois woman’s Center have been able to “take the child and his mother and flee to safety” away from a place where the city of Rockford kills it’s children.

This Christmas and as long as this killing center is open in Rockford please join Mary, Joseph, and many of your Christian sisters and brothers as we pray for and do what we can to protect these “holy innocents” facing death at the hands of our culture of death.
