Papal prayer, support for Canadian pro-life march
Catholic World News - May 09, 2014
Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, has conveyed a message of papal support for Canada’s National March for Life, which took place on May 8.
“His Holiness Pope Francis is pleased to greet everyone taking part in the 17th 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,” Cardinal Parolin said.
“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 labor to ensure that this fundamental human right receives adequate legal protection,” he continued. “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.”
