A Message from The Good Counsel Network



Dear friends,

Saving lives comes at a cost. We have just paid more than £2,000 for adverts that will go up in the London underground stations shortly.

We have a number of women, some pregnant, some mothers who rely on a little bit of weekly support from us so that they will have food to eat.  This support fulfils the promises we made to them when they were pregnant – many planning to abort – and we offered the very basic support needed to put food on their table when their children were born.

 Putting aside a couple of large outstanding bills that we have, amounting to over £5,000.00, this week we are urgently in need of to £2,500.00 to pay the things that cannot wait. This letter will not even be posted to all of our supporters as we don’t have the cost of postage. I therefore hope that you can help at this time, but if not please say the prayer to St. Philomena that we will raise the funds needed to continue our Life Saving work. As you will see on the attached form some supporters are doing a sponsored walk to help raise the money that we urgently need.

God Bless,

Stuart McCullough

Novena Prayer to St Philomena

O Faithful Virgin and Glorious Martyr, St Philomena, who works so many miracles on behalf of the poor and sorrowing, have pity on me. Thou knowest the multitude and diversity of my needs. Behold me at thy feet, full of misery, but full of hope. I entreat thy charity, O great Saint! Graciously hear me and obtain from God a favourable answer to the request which I now humbly lay before thee – that Good Counsel may raise the money it needs and that as many lives as possible will be saved through their work (add your own intentions). I am firmly convinced that through thy merits, through the scorn, the sufferings and the death thou didst endure, united to the merits of the passion and death of Jesus, thy spouse, I shall obtain what I ask of thee, and in the joy of my heart I will bless God, who is admirable in His Saints. Amen.

This is good news. It would be great if you could post a picture of the advertisement.
I don't know whether the one I have posted is the one.
