Religion clean and undefiled before God and the Father, is this: to visit the
and widows in their tribulation...(James 1:27)
What doth it profit a man to attend Latin Masses, but not live like the Good Samaritan?

Pope Francis sends message to the National March for Life in Ottawa
Following similar messages which he sent earlier this year to the March for Life in Washington and the recent March for Life in Rome, Pope Francis has sent the following message of support for today’s National March for Life in Ottawa:
His Holiness Pope Francis is pleased to greet everyone taking part in the seventeenth National March for Life in Ottawa, and he assures them of his spiritual closeness as they give witness to the God-given dignity, beauty and value of human life. He prays that this event foster greater respect for the inviolable right to life of each person from conception to natural death and support the efforts of all who labour to ensure that this fundamental human right receives adequate legal protection. To the organizers and participants, and in particular to those who aid women in crisis pregnancies and their children, the Holy Father cordially imparts his Apostolic Blessing as a pledge of joy and peace in the risen Lord.
