L’Angelus and the CFRs at the March for Life 2010

I wasn’t able to attend the March for Life in DC this year. I was able to attend the March here in Dallas though – which was great. We posted some pictures and videos we put together from it here.

Two of my favorite groups of people, however, did get to attend the March for Life in DC last week: My favorite Catholic trio, L’Angelus, and my favorite religious order, the CFRs. And they did so together. This just made me even more disappointed I wasn’t able to be there!

One of the most powerful things that come from any march or movement is not only the national attention it brings to the issue. And it’s not only the giant leaps it takes in bringing the issue into the public square.

It also builds community and makes important friendships as we come together and encourage each other to keep fighting this fight even more effectively. Anyone who has attended can attest to the feeling of camaraderie one feels when standing up for the Truth together with your fellow man. There is a connection – a shared passion for the dignity of all life – that allows big groups to do big things even if they’ve only just met.

C. S. Lewis said, “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one!'” In Washington D.C. last week hundreds of thousands of people, most of whom had never met, got together and became friends. It is a powerful thing. And year after year, we continue to build upon this movement and friendship growing bigger and louder every year. And what many don’t seem to realize yet is that we are never going to stop until we truly have justice for the unborn.

Stephen Rees (of L’Angelus) took some great pictures in DC as they marched with the CFRs and hundreds of thousands of other friends:

First off, thank you for deciding to follow me on Twitter — and it also helped me remind that this blog still exists, so thank you (I was considering going there some time ago, but haven’t done so until now)!

Now, I also wasn’t at the March for Life. However, did you join the Virtual March? There were plenty of people there too! (Unfortunately, I couldn’t go because my computer was blocking it as some kind of security threat — I don’t know why that happened. :-D)
