Listen to a beautiful pro-life song from Majella McKendry

Late last year I blogged on the time I prayed with my fellow Catholic po-lifers in the Helpers of God's Precious Infants in Sydney, on the feast of Our Lady of Guadaloupe. I am delighted to read of their recent successful 40 days for life campaign. 

As part of the worldwide 40 Days for Life initiative, the group prayed continuously for 40 days, a total of 960 hours, outside of Sydney's largest abortion clinic.

The procession which began the 40 days of prayer, was led by Bishop Julian Porteous, auxiliary Bishop of Sydney.

One of the remarkable things to emerge from the campaign was the opportunity for the group to record, very professionally, two pro-life songs.  One that I found particularly moving was a cover of Regina Spektor's hit, 'The Call'.  The vocals are supplied by 14 year old Majella McKendry, the daughter of Scott McKendry, the 40 Days for Life Sydney director.  I include the video for the song below.
