March for Life follow-up, and an alumni sighting.



And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitution, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind, and the gracious favor of Almighty God.

- Abraham Lincoln, The Emancipation Proclamation,
January 1st, 1863

I have asked the young people who traveled to Washington for the March for Life to send me their thoughts and impressions from the experience. I hope to share some of those reflections with you over the next few days.

Above, five members of our group at the Lincoln Memorial. In the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing the slaves and officially calling black slaves "persons", Lincoln also wrote that the United States Government "will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom."

If not a message of Christian faith, may Lincoln's memory and legacy be brought to bear for the unborn!

A bit of alumni news -- Tom Katzfy, CMH '05, and his rank basketball team from St. Norbert's College, will be playing locally is this coming Wednesday 1/28/2009 at Carroll University right down the road from CMH on College Avenue in Waukesha. The game starts at 7:00 P.M. and is likely going to be a sell out as both teams are undefeated in Midwest Conference play and it is receiving a lot of hype. Tom's team is currently ranked 17th in the country in its division.
