Jesuits & Family on the Mall

Some of the most consoling and inspiring events I have the privilege of participating in as a Jesuit are those in which large numbers of Jesuits and our lay colleagues and students are involved. I had the great privilege of attending just such an "Ignatian family" event on Monday. At 9:00 am on Monday, students and colleagues from our Jesuit high schools and universities around the country along with priests and scholastics from those same institutions and the Washington DC area filled Saint Aloysius Gonzaga Church in downtown Washington DC for Mass. We then proceeded en masse to the Mall for the March for Life, joining the thousands of other people who had also come to march. In case there was any doubt that we made our presence known, I've included photos of me and a few of my Jesuit brothers. Please pray with me that our witness will continue to convert hearts and minds, and that one day we might see an end to abortion.

Great photos, Mark, and such a beautiful and important witness!

I hope that those who are able to make that pilgrimage in person realize that they represent (each one of them) hundreds if not thousands of fellow faithful who cannot go in person.

An amazing pilgrimage of grace!
