Once again we recall the anniversary of
the Supreme Court’s decision Roe vs. Wade by peaceably assembling in the
annual March for Life. The tragedy of millions of
defenseless lives destroyed by abortion is indeed a call to let our government
officials and the world know that human life must be protected from the moment
of conception to natural death. At the annual March for Life, hundreds
of thousands gather to petition for an end to this grievous stain on our nation
and to celebrate the gift of human life.
This year, the March for Life organization invites us to reflect on the theme
“The Power of One.” It is always imperative for us to be reminded that as each
and every human life is unique and unrepeatable, it also takes each and every
one of us to make a difference. Of course it is in the power of the One, Triune
God that human life exists. Therefore, we turn to God for the grace to be
courageous and faithful witnesses to the Gospel of Life. May the 44th
March for Life be one of peace and safety and may many hearts be transformed
and the lives of the unborn be protected.
