Catholic Connection – Oct 5, 2021 – Hour 2

Katie Brown with the Marian Blue Wave talks about an abortionist who offered to pay them to stop praying the rosary at his office. Anita Houghton tells us about a new version of the dynamic “52 Sundays” guide. Patrick Reilly shares the story of a pastor in Virginia helping Catholic children get out of public schools.

Segment 1 – Intro, News and Katie Brown
“As faithful Catholics prayed the Rosary outside of a late-term abortion facility in Phillipsburg, New Jersey, the door opened and suddenly the abortionist was standing there. He asked the group of Marian Blue Wave participants, ‘Who is paying you to be here?’ When they replied that they were there voluntarily and not being paid, the man announced, ‘Well, I will pay you $100 not to come back!'” Katie talks about this incredible story.

Katie Brown is the director of the Marian Blue Wave program at American Life League. She is a 2018 graduate of Belmont Abbey College with a bachelor’s degree in English Language and Literature and minors in Criminal Justice and Christianity and Culture. For two years during her college career, she was editor of the college newspaper, The Crusader. While still a college student, Katie became involved with the pro-life movement and volunteered at American Life League and with the Life Defenders youth outreach.
