Segment 2 & 3 – Father Gordon’s Heavenly Inspiration | The 54-Day Rosary Novena for Life
Bishop Earl Boyea of Lansing has issued a pastoral letter urging prayer, fasting, almsgiving, and action for the defeat of Proposal 3, the Reproductive Freedom for All ballot initiative in Michigan. The prelate warned that the initiative is “ the most extreme abortion proposal this country has ever witnessed.” Fr. Reigle tells us what we can do.
Fr. Gordon Reigle is the Pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas Parish / St. John Church & Student Center in East Lansing.

Segment 4 – Defend Us in Battle: The True Story of MA2 Navy SEAL Medal of Honor Recipient Michael A. Monsoor
“On September 29, 2006, Michael Monsoor and three SEAL snipers watched vigilantly for enemy activity from their rooftop post in Ar Ramadi, Iraq. When a grenade thrown from insurgents bounced off Michael’s chest, he could have escaped. Instead, he threw himself onto the live grenade, shielding his fellow soldiers from the immediate explosion. Michael died thirty minutes later, having made the ultimate sacrifice. As George Monsoor (Michael’s father) and Rose Rea show us in Defend Us in Battle, Michael had prepared for this selfless act all his life–a life that inspires us to have a similar generosity of heart.”
Rose Rea is the founder of Radiant and Valiant Magazines now owned by Our Sunday Visitor and creator of the coffee table book “Spirit and Life: The Holy Sacraments of the Catholic Church” by Sophia Press.
