MARCH FOR Life - WASHINGTON, D.C.
January 27, 2017
What an incredible March for Life it was! Positive energy filled the entire area of the Washington Mall from the Washington Monument to the U. S. Supreme Court, and beyond.
The new administration’s affirmation of the pro-life movement and its commitment to work continually to advocate for human life was a salve on the wound of abortion which has plagued our nation for 44 years. The crowd roared as Vice President Michael R. Pence spoke from the stage about attending the March for Life for 15 years with his family, and of the plans to fight for the unborn.
The presence of much media at the March for Life to cover the speakers and the March was a true first; never has the media given any recognition to this incredible display of support for the unborn. Hundreds of thousands of marchers, mostly youth, converged on DC to display their commitment to the unborn. They are our future and they are committed to LIFE.
2017 is a new year and it begins a new era for pro-lifers. See photos:
ARCHBISHOP LEONARD P. BLAIR CELEBRATES MASS
FOR MARCH FOR LIFE PILGRIMS
Early in the morning on January 26, almost 150 pilgrims traveled in three large buses to Washington, DC to participate in the 2017 March for Life. The journey included the Rosary, Morning Prayer and a movie, My All-American. That evening the pilgrims attended the Vigil Mass for the March for Life at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception.
The following morning, Archbishop Leonard P. Blair celebrated Mass at the hotel where the pilgrims stayed; six priests concelebrated. In his homily, Archbishop Blair spoke of the depth and mystery of all creation and how limited our understanding of it truly is. The thought of living for eternity, he admitted, can even be somewhat frightening to him; yet, it is not to be feared as we know that Jesus will be our guide in this journey into eternity. More>
