A note from our Sister Gloria

Build Unity on the Life Principles throughout America. No Exception! No Compromise!

"Dear Friends and Family: Sr. Eileen and I walked in the March For Life with thousands of people! How awesome! There may have been more than 100,000 people and at least half were "children!!!" Some of the children had banners which said, "I am an Abortion Survivor!" Walking amidst so many people I noticed that no one was pushing or complaining. Everyone, from youngest to oldest, were smiling or singing or praying (or just talking) and all exhibited great patience. At times we could only walk an inch a minute because there were so many people.

The beginning rally lasted 1 1/2 hours from Noon to 1:30 p.m. with at least 15 House Representatives speaking for "Life," and a LIVE message of encouragement from President Bush who had spent the morning with Pro-Life Representatives at the Capitol. Many, many Bishops from everywhere (including our own Bishop Hughes) were announced to the crowd. The ones who really touched my heart were the women holding large black signs with large white letters that said, "I REGRET MY ABORTION!" Representatives of Jewish, Orthodox, and Christian Churches spoke out for life. At the end of the March is was 4 o'clock, and I was praying that I'd make it back to the bus. I did, and today am all revived and renewed.

Every year I think that maybe this will be the last March for Life, because it will be the year that Roe vs. Wade is reversed! This has not happened thus far. So, why don't YOU plan to come to the March next year! Let's try to double this year's number! Until then, let's VOTE FOR LIFE!!! There was an announcement that the number of abortions in this country ARE "DOWN." So let's do all we can to wipe this abomination from the face of the earth!

Love, Sister Gloria
