Life … to Be a Wife …

I’m in Washington for the March for Life and I’ve got to tell you: This crowd will uplift you. Not every single person, mind you, but I was over at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, on Catholic University’s campus late last night, and there were teens, families, and adults of all ages camped out there from all over the country. There were so many seemingly normal, happy, well-adjusted kids who had to be part of saying “no, this is wrong” in some way. And so here they are (some participating in compline or Eucharistic Adoration, others praying the Rosary, still others texting, talking outside, or sleeping).

There’s some glorious yeses, too, though. Last night I ran into a couple from Rhode Island shortly after they got engaged: He proposed in the Crypt Church.

It’s a beautiful thing to see how many of this crowd — and so many pro-life religious folks I’ve encountered – are praying for Barack Obama. They love their country and want better for it than legal abortion. They know the power of prayer, and if anything could make him reconsider abortion …
