Prayerful Protest in Ohio for End to Abortion

Greetings from St. Patrick's Church in Columbus, Ohio!  

Today the pastor here, Fr. Michael Dosch OP, celebrated the morning Mass in honor of our Lady.  After the Mass, parishioners from St. Patrick's and St. Thomas Aquinas (Zanesville) went to an abortion clinic in downtown Columbus to prayerfully pray the entire Rosary in front of an abortion clinic.  Here is another story Right to Life did on St. Pat's.

parishes praying the Rosary in front of abortion clinic in Columbus, OH.
It has been a long time since I have participated in one of these events and I must admit: it was very moving.  We saw about a dozen women enter the clinic this morning.  Pray for an end to abortion and for women who suffer the effects of abortion.


I am just here overnight. Yesterday I was in Latrobe, PA with Fr. Boniface Hicks OSB of St. Vincent Archabbey on the monks' radio station to talk about the catechesis of Bishop Anthony Fisher OP during the recent World Youth Day in Madrid.  I hope we will post that recording later.  

I am en route to Ann Arbor where I will be staying with the Dominican Sisters of Mary Mother of Eucharist while I attend a national conference for vocation directors.  Please say a prayer for all of us!
