Pro-life movement made strides across America
To the editor:
In the past few weeks we have witnessed St. Francis of Assisi’s words in the pro-life movement, in cities such as Lewistown, Erie, Birmingham, Ala., San Francisco, Bismarck, N.D., Mandan, N.D., Jefferson City, Mo., Palatine, Ill., Chicago, Washington, D.C. and many, many more cities.
As people of all denominations in force marched, they were preaching the Gospel. Their numbers were in the millions. People witnessing those marches had first hand insight into Christ’s Gospel. They marched in love for those who have had no love.
John 13, 34-35: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Those who marched were Christ’s disciples.
In Diane Logan’s letter she commented not all could do the march but they did the most important part, they prayed. “Although I was not one of those who did the actual walk from Sacred Heart Church to the AME New Hope Center I did drive that path and attended a wonderful and inspirational meeting. I can only hope others would make the effort and join us next year when we will march so as to remind people that we can and should be a voice for the pre-born… over a million each year who have no choice and are discarded as if without worth.”
Hopefully many more disciples will be added next year.
The pro-life march was a “Week of Prayer for Christian Unity,” and is traditionally celebrated between Jan. 18 and 25. The week was
“Ecumenical Week” and the “Sanctity of Human Life Week.”
