March for Life Washington DC

 I have just returned from the Washington DC March for Life having travelled in the company of over one hundred fantastic people - the majority of whom we would call "young" - by bus, a journey of almost 24 hours each way. No doubt the media gave it very little coverage. Here are my photos - look at the them and tell me that the Church is finished and irrelevant to our young people today!

I could write at length - but I am too full of impressions to begin to express them. What hope there is for the future. This battle will not be overcome in a year - and even if surgical abortion becomes illegal, there is still the battle over "emergency contraception", the restoration of chastity and the re-building of marriage and the family. But our Church looks to have healthy future if our young people are anything to go by. The sheer number of seminarians and young religious present gives one cause for a sure and well-founded hope in the future.

  1. Regarding media coverage I did a search on the BBC website. I discovered articles dating from 1998, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2008. So nothing for the last four years.
    The London Times has nothing since 2005.
    The Guardian has nothing for any year.
    The Daily Telegraph has nothing for any year.
    The Independent has nothing for any year. Sadly, the first item which came up when searching on the Independent site was: Change 'unsafe' law on assisted dying, says ex police chief
