On Sunday January 18 I joined 160 young people and seminarians from Baton Rouge and the surrounding area on a pilgrimage to Washington D.C. for the annual March for Life. Although they spent five days in the north, the march itself took place on the following Thursday.
Beginning with a Youth Rally at the Verizon center, the Washington Wizards basketball stadium, thousands of pilgrims marched down the mall to the US Capitol building and on to the Supreme Court to show their protest of the Roe vs Wade case.
There were 30000 young people at the Verizon center celebrating Mass with the Archbishop of Washington and hundreds of other priests and bishops - the procession alone took 25 minutes.
Louisiana is awesome, I've met some amazing people. The seminarians are great. The homeless are also good, I love that type of work. The psychiatric hospital is a little more taxing but the people are good.
