Pope sends Twitter message of support to March for Life
January 25, 2013
Pope Benedict XVI sent his greetings to participants in the March for Life in Washington, DC, on January 25, with a message on his Twitter account.
“I join all those marching for life from afar, and pray that political leaders will protect the unborn and promote a culture of life,” the Holy Father wrote.
The Pope sent his message on Friday as hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers joined in the annual March. At a youth rally before the March, the apostolic nuncio in Washington, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, read a letter from the Pontiff, sending his “warm greetings and the assurance of his closeness and prayer” to the March participants. Archbishop Vigano said that the Pope is “grateful to all those who take part in this outstanding public witness.”
