Dear Missionary of the Gospel of Life,
Greetings in the Name of the One Who makes all things new!
In my previous email I discussed the importance of beginning the
New Year in a reflective, repentant, and hopeful way. It is in
this spirit and union with God that we take to the highways as
we Witness - and March - for Life this January.
Whether we are participating in local or national marches, or
active in other forms of witness and prayer, I ask that you join
me in reading Fr. Frank's article, "Why I March for Life":
