COLORADO SPRINGS. Life Network’s 2020 Walk for Life looked a little different from previous years, but our “Catholics 4 Life Network” team stepped out in faith and raised over $52,000 in support of the agency. COVID-19 restrictions required Life Network to get creative with their annual fundraising walk, so they took the walk virtual. Since we couldn’t gather at Memorial Park, walkers and runners were encouraged to map a two-mile course in their neighborhoods or nearby recreation areas and trails and then walk or run on June 6 wherever they were.

COLORADO SPRINGS. “What happened to the strong man?”

     “I’m sorry — but what strong man? What are you talking about?”

     “You know,” she said. “The statue of the muscular, demonic figure that used to be perched on the roof. I walk by here all the time, and I always see it. It’s not there today. What happened to it?”

     “There never was any statue.”

This conversation, as shared in the book “40 Days for Life” by David Bereit and Shawn Carney, really happened. No one else had seen that demon, but this woman had seen it on the roof of the abortion clinic time and time again as she walked past the clinic. After the abortion center was closed and the building was prayed over, the physical representation showing a spiritual reality was gone.
