Christina Pallini, The Power of Life Inc., organized the march and route down Green Bay’s busy Mason Street. Franciscan Sisters carried signs with quotes from St. Francis and Pope Francis.

Bishop and martyr St. Ignatius of Antioch  words might be equally meaningful for today:

Nothing is hidden from the Lord, but even our secrets are close to him. Let us then do everything in the knowledge that he is dwelling within us that we may be his temples, and he God within us. He is, and will reveal himself, in our sight, according to the love we bear him in holiness.”

    I was able to attend the Mass for Life in the Diocese of Tucson on Saturday, January 17. It was a joy to see there, as well as here, the devotion to life at all stages and a quality of life that promotes dignity throughout all stages. Thank you for posting this experience.
