A reader asked me to post the following request:
Some of you may have seen the cover story of the Sept. 19-25 issue of the National Catholic Register. It describes how a group of 500 students from Franciscan University of Steubenville showed up as a peaceful, prayerful pro-life witness at a campaign event held in Steubenville for Sen. John Kerry.
As you may know, the senator will be having a similar event here in Forest Park after this Friday night’s debate. A number of us felt that it would not be right to let this go by without offering a similar witness to the sanctity of life and the incongruity of the position which Senator Kerry represents. The archbishop was informed of our idea and gave us his blessing on the undertaking.
