Going Down To The Capital For The March For Life
Many different rites of the Church will be there in their different vestments and hats. Hundreds of parishes will be carrying their banners through the streets. The news media will ignore the event as usual except to focus on a handful of pro-abortion folks who are protesting. The ratio is about 250,000 to 10 , but they will get most of the press.
The most poignant part of the March for me is seeing all the brave and noble women lined up on the steps of the Supreme Court holding signs "I regret my abortion." There are no words to describe this.
In the past when we have had conservative presidents, they would make a call and deliver a pep talk to the massive crowd on the Mall. This will be the second year in a row that the White house will not be addressing the crowds.
Let us pray for the day when we won't have to make this annual march in the dead of winter to tell our president and congressmen: a country that legalizes abortion has lost its soul.
