Footage of the Youth Rally For Life and Mass For Life From Washington, D.C. is now available at http://www.CatholicTV.com/catholic-television.
The Youth Rally For Life included musical performances by Steve Angrisano, Ike Ndolo, Maddie Curtis and an audience of thousands of young Catholics from around the country.
During his homily, which is viewable now at CatholicTV.com, Fr. Mark Ivan said, “The biggest difference between other civil rights movements and the right to life movement is that the people whose rights are being taken away by Roe vs. Wade are not here to stand up for themselves. They can’t show the people in power that they are just as human as everyone else, they can’t march around Washington like the women who were denied the right to vote, they can’t give powerful speeches like Fredrick Douglass or Martin Luther King. The millions of unborn babies that have been affected by abortion aren’t here to stand up for themselves.”
Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington presided over the Mass For Life at the Verizon Center. Due to overwhelming attendance at this event in the past years, a second Youth Rally and Mass for Life also took place at the DC Armory and allowed an additional 10,000 youth to attend.
