Franciscan Focus

Just a simple blog of a Secular Franciscan trying to live life with a Franciscan focus.

March for Life 2009 

I so wish things could've worked out for Husband Mike and me to attend this year's March for Life. While we can't be there, we can and are praying for those wonderful folks out marching right now.

You definitely won't see the MSM reporting on this, and if they do, what they may say will misrepresent and downplay the march's magnitude. Thankfully, pro-lifers are stepping in to get the word out, and throughout the day, I've been sneaking peeks at EWTN's live online coverage. Here are a few great images:

Lookie, lookie! Franciscan friars! Woooooo!

Love seeing all these banners. Yay, Missouri!

What a joyful riot of color.

Nice shot showing just a tiny fraction of the huge variety of placards and signs that folks are carrying.

Love the sheer number of placards people are carrying. More power to your blogging. God bless!

Because of work and family I have never been able to attend the March. But in 2011 when it falls on a Saturday I just might get my chance.

Wouldn't it be great to get as many SFO groups as possible to attend the same March!
