Talk to anyone who went to the March for Life this year, and they will all tell you the same thing: “It was cold” is a gross understatement. It was freezing. Below freezing. The morning of the March, the wind was actually cold enough to warrant a frostbite warning from the weather service.
Nonetheless, at 11:15 AM, with about fifty youth and a dedicated group of clergy and chaperones, CEC For Life began the subzero trek from our hotel on Capitol Hill to the Supreme Court steps for our annual Liturgy for the Preborn at the Time of Death, led by Fr. Terry Gensemer.
Huddled together before the building wherein nine Supreme Court justices stripped away the rights of the preborn, we joined in song and prayer for those who have died in the abortion holocaust, beseeching God to care for the preborn in death and to put an end to the horrific violence that is abortion.
