This January 22 marks the 37th anniversary of the Roe vs Wade ruling that has resulted in the tragic deaths of untold millions of unborn babies. Catholic pro-life groups work untiringly not only to reverse Roe vs Wade but to protect the unborn through a myriad of programs and by cooperating with others in creating a culture of life in our diocese and our nation.
Bishop Kevin Vann of Fort Worth will join me and other priests in celebrating a Mass in the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe on Saturday January 16 at 10 a.m. in memory of the millions of unborn babies who have been aborted and their parents wounded by abortion. The Mass will be followed by a rally and March for Life.
I challenge Catholics who participated in the 2009 anniversary to return this year and bring a friend to make it 10 in 2010. On January 16, let’s have 10,000 Catholics praying and marching in 2010.
Thousands of others will be participating in the Texas Rally for Life in Austin on January 23 and the Youth for Life March in Washington that same weekend.
To be Catholic is to be Pro-Life.
