View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

40 Days for Life in Rochester

The national "40 Days for Life" campaign will take place in Rochester - with a Catholic (and a Knights of Columbus member) in charge and Planned Parenthood, the billion-dollar abortion business, as the focus.

According to the Catholic Courier, José E. Rivera of St. Leo's Parish in Hilton is the local director of the campaign, which will run from September 24 to November 2. The 24-hour prayer vigils will take place outside the Planned Parenthood clinic and killing center at 114 University Avenue in Rochester.

Everyone can help, even if it's just an hour. I plan to sign up.

If you are a local person and want to get involved, here's the contact information: e-mail ROC40DFL@rochester.rr.com or call 585-305-1224.

If you are not from Rochester, check to see if there is an effort near your. According to the Courier, there are vigils planned for at least 175 cities in 45 states.
