This is Nicole Kelly, one of our students. The above photo is part of a class photo taken just a few weeks ago. She was fourteen and in Second year. Her friends say she was wild but lovely, mad about boys and full of life. Last night she was late getting home and took a short cut, was knocked down at about 9.00 p.m. and pronounced dead a few hours later. Her death is a huge shock to us all, above all to her parents. Please remember them in your prayers.

It is all too easy to forget how fragile life is and how easily we can be propelled from this world into the presence of God. Just as easily we can by our actions propel someone else from this world. Driving home to-day I was thinking about that, how easy it would be to make a mistake, be careless, or just unfortunate, and kill someone with my car.

At any moment we may lose our loved ones therefore we ought to cherish them. At any moment we may lose our lives therefore we ought to live life at the ready to go and stand before God.

People From 18 Nations Register For Rosary Prayer Event For Unborn Babies

MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE (March 1st, 2010) - More than 3,000 Rosaries have already been registered by persons from 18 nations for the May 7th - 9th ONE MILLION ROSARIES FOR UNBORN BABIES prayer event. Each Rosary will be prayed for the following intention: For an end to the surgical and non-surgical killing of unborn human persons. Persons registering are from the following nations: Netherlands, Chile, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England, Philippines, India, Singapore, South Africa, Nigeria, Lithuania, Ivory Coast, Peru, Latvia, United Arab Emirates, United States and Belgium.

" Throughout the world in the last 50 or so years, an incomprehensible tragedy has happened; namely, the surgical killing of approximately one billion unborn human persons and the non-surgical killing of a multitude of unborn human persons(the number of non-surgical deaths is more difficult to approximate). Throughout the history of mankind, no other group of people has ever gone through such a horror. I am very grateful to see people from various nations support the ONE MILLION ROSARIES FOR UNBORN BABIES prayer event," said Patrick Benedict, President of the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization, the organization coordinating the prayer effort.

"Sitting by and allowing this massacre to continue is not an option. When we say that Christ died for each of us, that includes each unborn human person. In the eyes of God, these babies are precious.

" Yet, an attack of hellish proportions has been waged for many years now against the unborn babies. The ONE MILLION ROSARIES FOR UNBORN BABIES prayer event can be defined as a counter-attack in which participants pray the Rosary for the unborn babies who can not pray for themselves.

" This May 7th - 9th Rosary is a great opportunity for the world to unite in prayer for the protection of unborn babies. Let's be reminded of the words of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima, Portugal in 1917: 'Say the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world,' " concluded Benedict.

Registration for the May 7th - 9th Rosary is easy and may be done by going to (a person may also send his intentions to P.O. Box 41257; Memphis, Tennessee 38174; U.S.A.). Some people have already registered more than 8 Rosaries for themselves alone. Families, schools, and parishes have also registered Rosaries.

In addition to praying the Rosary, the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization encourages people to tell others about the ONE MILLION ROSARIES FOR UNBORN BABIES prayer event. The Organization's website(see above) has a section about promoting the event and also has a bulletin insert, a bulletin announcement, etc. Information about promoting the prayer effort may also be obtained by sending a stamped, self-addressed envelope to the above-listed mailing address.

A count of the number of Rosaries people have registered is being kept at the website
