Military Catholics at March for Life

Everyone from conception to the moment of natural death has inalienable rights and we rejoice in the privilege of affirming those rights on the anniversary of a regrettable decision of the Supreme Court.  May the March for Life reaffirm our commitment to serve the truth, to respect everyone, and to unite in prayer.

-Archbishop Broglio
