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": www.priestsforlife.org/articles/whyimarch.htm.

You may find a full listing of Priests for Life/Pro-Life Activities in Response to 36 years of Roe vs. Wade at www.priestsforlife.org/roe/index.htm.

Here are some of the key events:

Thursday, January 22, Washington, D.C.:
8:15am ET: Fr. Frank will preach at the National Memorial for the PreBorn and their Mothers and Fathers in the US Senate (exact location TBA). This morning prayer service is interdenominational and will feature powerful singing and preaching to prepare you for the afternoon's March for Life.

The public is asked to be seated by 8:15am. Be sure to arrive early to allow time to get through security. The service will begin at 8:30am.

12 noon - The March for Life Rally begins on the National Mall. Fr. Frank Pavone will greet marchers in front of the Supreme Court after the March.

3:45pm ET: Silent No More Awareness Campaign (www.silentnomoreawareness.org) gathering in front of the Supreme Court. Janet Morana and Georgette Forney, Co-Founders of the SNM Campaign, will be present, along with Fr. Frank who will give opening remarks and prayers.

6pm ET: Rose Dinner at the Hyatt Regency, Washington, DC.

Throughout the nation, there will be many pro-life activities on the 22nd. Here are two examples:

12noon-2pm: Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach, will be speaking at the Together for Life Annual Memorial for the Unborn at the Georgia State Capitol Building at 214 State Capitol Atlanta, GA. Sponsored by Georgia Right to Life.

My beloved wife Joy and I will appear on Life on the Rock with hosts Father Mark Mary and Doug Barry on EWTN, Thursday, January 22, 2009 at 8pm ET. Be part of the live show by calling 1-800-221-9460 or email rock@ewtn.com.

This show will replay on Friday, January 23 at 1am and 1pm and Sunday, January 25 at 11pm. For more information or to watch online see www.ewtn.com/rock/index.asp.

On Saturday, January 24, in San Francisco, the 5th Annual Walk for Life West Coast will take place in San Francisco, CA. See www.walkforlifewc.com for more information. Fr. Frank Pavone and Fr. Denis Wilde, OSA, will be in attendance.

From our knees, to the streets, let us unite in this New Year and bear witness to the greatest message on earth, The Gospel of Life.
