My parish and I are off to the March for Life. While I lived in DC I was never able to attend but since getting ordained I have attended every year. Last year over 400,000 were in attendance and this year with it being the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade it is expected to be higher. We will see. It is pretty amazing to see this number of people show up year after year for this cause and it is even more amazing that hardly anyone covers it. We live in a great country because we are able to peacefully protest but I pray that we can become greater. Say a little pray for our safe travel and pray for the cause if you’re able.
I’m off to my annual retreat at St. Meinrad. Every priest is suppose to take a yearly retreat and since my ordination in 2008 I’ve always taken mine at St. Meinrad where I was trained. I love the place. I really love the place this time of year because no one is there. It’s just me and the monks and the liturgy and beauty of the place. Back on the 5th.
