Despite a taste of summer in the air on Saturday, June 5th, 500 pro-lifers gathered for a call to action while mourning the thousands of lives lost to abortion in West Chester, PA a 45-minute drive from Philadelphia.
The day began with Mass at St. Agnes Church near the heart of town. Bishop John McIntyre was celebrant homilist for the Mass for Life. In his homily, he reflected on his visit to the 9/11 memorial in New York and how the 3,000 lives lost there was no different that the daily murder of the unborn in our society today. He reminded everyone that life from womb to tomb is precious and made perfect in the eye of God.
After the celebration of Mass, the pro-lifers peacefully march around town. The first stop was the Planned Parenthood facility.
Following the brief rally and prayer at Planned Parenthood, everyone processed to the courthouse in the middle of town.
The speakers were deep, personal, and cover topics that are affecting the culture of life.
Overall, the day was filled with beauty and love.
