Urgent Prayers Needed for Priest

I received an email today:
Our good friend and stalwart prolife martyr, Father Norman Weslin [who is 75, I believe] has been on trial in federal Court in Omaha this week for what could be his third F.A.C.E. conviction. The crime this time is not blocking any door or act of physical “violence” except entering the killing center, praying the rosary and pleading for moms to allow their babies to be born.

This morning the jury hears closing arguments after a very demonic trial and series of false testimony which began on Tuesday and concluded on Wednesday. The female federal judge, an obvious pro-abort, will instruct the jury of 9 men and 3 women who will deliberate and render a verdict as early as this afternoon, Holy Thursday, April 5th.

Please contact as many intercessors as you can today, imploring their prayers that “the righteousness of this cause will shine like the noonday sun.” This godly, elderly priest, who probably has spent more time in jail than any of us, remains as always, fearless, but physically not quite what he was 19 years ago when I first met him at Key Road prison in Atlanta, GA. Pray Pray Pray

Thanks for forwarding this message.

There is more information at Operation Rescue here.

F.A.C.E is the Federal Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, passed in 1994, which mandates prison time for those who block access of anyone entering an abortion mill. If convicted Fr. Weslin faces 18 months in a federal prison. The trial is expected to wrap up on Thursday. worker Hannah Burns testified Tuesday that all women entered the clinic without any problem. While on the stand, she reportedly mocked the priest for praying at the clinic and showed contempt for his religious beliefs. (my emphasis)
Say some extra prayers for this priest today, please.
