Heading to Washington, DC


Today is the day when a group of our students from the CMH Pro-Life Club, and their chaperones head off to Washington, DC for the 37th Annual March for Life.
.
I am leaving on a earlier flight in order to meet with some people related to my Canon Law work, so I am here at Mitchell International at 6:00am awaiting my flight on the ever-changing Midwest(Express)/Frontier/Republic Airlines. Sadly, without those wide seats anymore, it is just not the same...believe me!
.
While they estimate that there will be more people at the March than ever before, those of you at home can join in through your prayers, or by following along at the Virtual March for Life.
At CMH the goal is that through the totality of our educational endeavor, that our students will fully appreciate the reasons that abortion (and all anti-life measures) must be fought. Not only is it theological (we are made in the image and likeness of God), it is a product of natural reason (a civilization willing to kill its own, will inevitably kill itself), and it is the greatest social justice issue of our day.
.
I mentioned in my homily at Tuesday's all-school mass, that by using the pro-abortion Alan Guttmacher Institute's own figures and methods, it is estimated that there have been more than 49,500,000 abortions since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. Today's high school students soon realize that their age group is right in the heart of this target group. In fact, more then a quarter of their generation, a quarter of their would-be classmates and friends, have been lost to abortion. (To hear my homily from last Tuesday, click here.)
