1,000 attend bishop's burial Mass for aborted children found in trash

Catholic World News - November 23, 2010

Over 1,000 attended a November 20 funeral Mass at the cathedral in Lansing for 17 abortion victims whose remains were found in the trash by a pro-life activist. Following the Mass, the babies’ remains were interred in a Catholic cemetery.

“Today we mourn, like Rachel weeping for her children, we mourn for how some seek to destroy Jesus in these his least brothers and sisters,” preached Bishop Earl Boyea. “Yet, not only for the hurt to the Lord, we also mourn for these children themselves, whose very lives were desired by God, whose dignity was given by God, whose purpose and destiny are known only to God.”
