Live coverage of the 2015 March For Life in Washington DC

March For Life

On January 22nd, hundreds of thousands of pro-life people, mostly young adults, will come to Washington D.C.  to March for Life as we protest Roe v. Wade.  Every year since abortion was legalized, pro-lifers have marched to let Congress, the Supreme Court, and the nation know that Americans support life.  January is not the ideal month for standing in the cold for hours, so everyone bundles up and somehow that day seems to be one of the coldest and rainiest of the year.  In spite of the weather, we still March making great sacrifices because the unborn need a voice. Join us for LIVE coverage leading up to the March and Thursday throughout the day.

Also, Join with your Radio Maria Family in the Novena …For the conversion of all hearts and the end to abortion. http://www.usccb.org/

January 22, 2014 – Defending Life – Marching in Washington and San Francisco

Let us not underestimate the power of the Holy Spirit. In 1 Samuel 16, we see that “the Spirit of the Lord came upon David”. We also know that David, in this “Spirit of God” and without armor, defeats a mighty warrior who is heavily armed. Is this not remarkable? In 2 Timothy 1, the Spirit is given to Timothy by the “laying on of hands”. Afterward, Timothy receives the spirit of power and love and self-control. With the same Holy Spirit, three guests on this program discuss how they have each chosen to defend life. They also share their experiences from the 41st. March for Life in Washington DC and founding of the Walk for Life in San Francisco. These champions began with modest goals, and by God’s grace and the help of other believers, have done much for the cause of life!

Francesca Franchina, MS Ed. talks with Director of Development Sister Mary Ann Barnhorn, SN DeNamur of Cincinnati, Ohio about St. Julie Billiart Foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame deNamur founded in 1804 and the ministries of the 1400 Sisters in 11 countries and 34 areas throughout the United States since 1840. Founded in Belgium, as educators of young children in the faith discussion will focus on their growing service in mission. The ongoing vision and purpose of The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in education, and the fruitful ministries that have developed under the mantle of St. Julie in helping men, women and children throughout the world is amazing. Hear about the effects of the martyrdom of Sister Dorothy Stang, SNdeNamur in Brazil in the Amazon which have had a great ripple effect. The Sisters are alive and well, growing and dwelling among the poor throughout the USA and the world. Hear about The Emmaus House in Saginaw, MI, serving women who have no place to go after being released from prison or addiction rehab and other great ministries. Sisters are still adding to their numbers, teaching in grade schools, high schools and Trinity University in Washington, DC and doing God’s work under the mantle of the Blessed Mother in various areas of service and ministry.

Last week at this time, I was in Phoenix and you heard my interview of Dr Clint Leonard, an NFP-Only Ob/Gyn who practices in a Phoenix suburb. He is a great witness to the beauty and efficacy of authentic Catholic health care. If you missed the program, you can listen to the recording at radiomaria.us/questforlife by going to our archives for 11 December.

Mike has a great personal story of following God’s plan for his life by moving his family to Washington DC to attend the John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family. He took a leap of faith–“be not afraid”–and great things happened, in his family and in the Diocese of Phoenix.
