Here we are, at the midpoint of the 40 DAYS FOR LIFE campaign and just after the PRO-LIFE DAY OF SILENT SOLIDARITY, a national day of silent reflection for the babies, which was preceded by PRO LIFE MEMORIAL DAY on October 6. One has to wonder what has gotten into these pro-life Americans!
Of course, I actually don't wonder at all, because I know the answer and it is really quite simple. Zeal for principle, commitment to faith and respect for life, plus a healthy dose of humility before God all add up to the wondrous events occurring as the dominant media outlets give us nary a glance.
To all the members of the Church, the people of life and for life, I make this most urgent appeal, that together we may offer this world of ours new signs of hope, and work to ensure that justice and solidarity will increase and that a new culture of human life will be affirmed, for the building of an authentic civilization of truth and love.
