Before the sun even rises, young Marchers for Life will be waking on gym floors this morning and from their encampment at Washington’s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception where they will utilize every available inch of its extensive floor-space and pew space. They will arise and hit mass first, at the Shrine with Cardinal-designate Dolan from New York, at large rallies at the Verizon Center and the DC Armory,and in area catholic schools and colleges including Mount Saint Mary College and Georgetown Academy.
Adult marchers will find their way to the streets of DC well after the sun rises. It’s an upside down church today.
Please pray for the Marchers for Life of all generations. May the make their stand for life with conviction and may they awaken a culture by their witness. And then, may everyone sleep well and safely on their way home.
UPDATE: I spoke on Relevant Radio this morning from across the street from the Rally for Life.
