“I found out I was pregnant and the first thing I thought was abortion, but I thank God that I have erased that idea from my head, because now I’m happy waiting for a baby. ” – Yesenia
Those are the very common thinking of many young who find themselves pregnant and alone. When they are alone, where do they go? Who will help them close LIFE?
This young women found herself again pregnant and thinking of abortion but an angle send her to La Casa Hogar.
La Casa Hogar is located in Mexico City which provides a decent home to young single mothers and children in street situations to raise their quality of life through comprehensive assistance and human promotion based on fundamental values of coexistence, as well as encouraging them to develop and become independent as healthy families.
La Casa Hogar para Madres Solteras AC was founded in Mexico in June 1993 and is located south of Mexico City.

Thus, even today, after 97 years, this religious sisters continue their selfless work defending the life and dignity of women overwhelmed by problems.
“It should no longer be frowned upon to be a single mother, on the contrary, to prevent a crime against a helpless being from being committed is a great act of courage. In this sense we want to support and therefore we will continue to pray for society to unite and give voice to those who do not have it, “said the nun.

Protectress of the Unborn
April 24th reports what may have been an unusual luminosity in the famed image of Mary at the Shrine of Guadalupe in Mexico City immediately after that city legalized abortion.
“An engineer, Luis Girault, who has studied the picture thus produced, has confirmed the authenticity of the negative, and has been able to specify that it had not been either modified nor altered, by superimposition of another image for example,” stated the priest. “He discovered that the image (the picture produced) does not come from any reflection, but literally comes from the inside of the image of the Virgin. The produced light is very white, pure and intense, different from habitual photographic lights produced by flashes. This light is encircled with a halo and appears to float inside the abdomen of the Virgin. This halo has the form and measurements of an embryo. In effect if we again examine more precisely this picture by making it turn in a sagittal plan, we perceive inside the halo some areas of shade that have the characteristics of a human embryo in the maternal womb.”
Our Lady is hurting, Our Lord cries. These sisters are taking into action Our Lord’s merciful love to these young mother who choose LIFE.
We have a deadline of December 15th to give us enough time to shop for the supplies.
