Prayers for March

I have an assignment for all my faithful readers. Please offer up a few prayers this week for our upcoming trip to DC. I'll be taking thirteen teenagers, with the help of another parent, to the March for Life. It's an awful long drive, so prayers for great weather and a safe journey are more than appreciated!

For anyone who wants to meet up, we'll be at the Basilica for the 5:30 Mass. [correction: Mass is at 5:15 in the lower crypt.] We can try to meet in front beforehand. You may be able to pick us out by the two canvas banners (18 in. high, and 8 feet long) the kids will be carrying. One has the "Why is it a crime punishable by death to be in your mother's womb?" quote from Reverend John Catoir. The other one has the "It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish" quote from Mother Teresa.

Praying for a safe trip. My dd went to the March for Life last year with our parish youth group. Unfortunately now that we are in Germany, it is not an option :(

See you there -- but please note: Mass at the Basilica is at 5:15, not 5:30, in the lower-level crypt chapel.

I am SO proud of you! Those teens will have a trip they won't soon forget!
I'll be driving down early on Monday, for the youth Mass, Blogs for Life at the Family Research Council and the March.
I'll look for those banners, and you!
