Red. Pro-Life. For the President.

Someone gave our monastery information about the following pro-life campaign idea that I’ve also noticed on some Catholic blogs. Our abbot (superior) supplied us with the envelopes.

Get a red envelope. You can buy them at Kinkos, stationery or party supply stores. On the front, address it to:

President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Washington , D.C. 20500-0001
Make sure you also print your name and return address on the envelope. (I think that without it your envelope would just be tossed without being counted.)

On the back of the envelope, write the following message.

This envelope represents one child who died in abortion.
It is empty because that life was denied the chance to offer anything to the world.
Responsibility begins with conception.
Seal the empty envelope. Put a stamp on it and mail it.

The hope is that the president will receive millions of these.

Thanks for posting this! I started the Red Envelope idea, and I am excited that there are benedictines involved!
