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

Jose E. Rivera, the Campaign Coordinator for the 40 Days for Life in Rochester, left a comment on a previous post.


He wanted to make sure that any Rochester area readers know the kick-off rally for 40 Days for Life here in Rochester is 5:30 p.m. this Tuesday, September 23, at Our Lady of the Americas Church on Main Street. (The church used to be called Corpus Christi.)


The peaceful prayer vigils start on the 24th and will run through November 2 at the Planned Parenthood Killing Center on University Avenue.

I hope to make the rally, and plan to take part in the vigils.

One side note: Rivera is a member of the Knights of Columbus.

Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, Carl Anderson, has written an open letter to Democratic VP Candidate Joe Biden, a pro-choice Catholic, urging him to reconsider his views on the issue.

I liked one part in particular: "You have a choice: you can listen to your conscience and work to secure the rights of the unborn to share in the fruits of our hard-won liberty, or you can choose to turn your back on them."

Let' see, more than a million K of C members. With spouses, well over a million potential voters.
