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.

Pro-life events in Rochester

In addition to the pro-life prayer vigil at Sacred Heart Cathedral tomorrow night at 7, I've gotten notice of two other events in Rochester for those who can't make it to Washington for the March for Life.

From 1- 3 p.m there will be prayers outside Planned Parenthood's headquarters at 114University Avenue (I'll be at work at that time).

At 7 p.m. the First Unitarian Church at 220 S. Winton Road will be hosting a "Roe v. Wade 36th Anniversary Program" featuring Bill Baird, who is sometimes described as "the Father of Abortion and Birth Control." He'll be speaking, prolifers be protesting outside. They will be gathering at 6:15 to begin their protest.

I wish I could make all three, but given my schedule and the proximity, I'll likely be at the Cathedral praying.

In two years when the March for Life falls on a Saturday I'll finally be able to go as I no longer (after 21 years!) work on Saturdays. I look forward to that.
