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.
The March for Life is an annual rally which takes place in Washington DC to peacefully protest the practice and legality of abortion. This year, the March took place on January 24 with the theme “Life Empowers: Pro-Life is Pro-Woman.”
Earlier that morning, Archbishop Broglio was the principal celebrant for the closing Mass of the National Prayer Vigil for Life at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Archbishop’s homily from the Mass is available online.
Later, after celebrating Mass at the Edwin Cardinal O’Brien Pastoral Center for AMS Staff and a delegation of cadets from Westpoint, Archbishop Broglio led some 40 members of the Archdiocese in the annual March for Life on the National Mall.
