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.

March for Life in Rochester


We will hold a March for Life to Planned Parenthood's headquarters in Rochester tomorrow, June 13 at 1 p.m.

The March will begin at Our Lady of Victory Church, 210 Pleasant Street, after the noon Mass (hint). It will proceed prayerfully and peacefully through downtown Rochester to the Planned Parenthood offices and abortion clinic at 114 University Avenue.

Previous marches - when the weather wasn't nice, as in the picutre above - have drawn more than 100 participants.

In the past, the pro-choicers have generally not been there. One time they were there (about 20 of them) for one of our marches they were loud and confrontational - as per usual. Given the Tiller murder, however, there may be some this time again. But the pro-lifers will remain peaceful - as per usual.

It would be great if we could get even more pro-life marchers this time - 200 would be nice. Be there if you can. If you can't, please pray for life.

Wonderful! I'll see you there (even if I don't know who you are). I'm the portly bearded fellow who looks like he might be a friend of Santa Claus.
