No blogging till Wednesday

...because I'm headed to Washington, D.C., very early tomorrow, for the March for Life. I'm flying, and unless I change my mind, I don't plan to bring my laptop--I don't need it.

Our bishops have declared Jan. 22 a day of fasting and prayer for reparation of sins against human life. I hope everyone will join with this time of prayer and action, in whatever fashion you can, either by coming if you can, or joining a demonstration or prayer vigil somewhere, attending Mass, making sacrifices, and praying.

Hi Father Martin,
I will keep you and all those with you in prayer while you're in DC. No mention of anything similar here in Canada.

God bless,
Patricia Gonzalez

I was there. Looking forward to hearing your impressions.

It was the nicest weather I've seen for the march (I've only been going for 3 years now).

While I didn't see you at the March or Masses, I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did. The vigil Mass for life was beautiful at the Basilica and the Youth Rally and Mass was also great. (Although, we were in so many different locations, TC, the Marian Scholasticate and the Franciscan Monastery among others that we only got onto the floor about half an hour before Mass.

Thanks to you, all the priests and the many bishops you attended and concelebrated.
