Raleigh Seminarian on March for Life

One of our diocesan seminarians wrote in the Raleigh Vocations blog about his experience at the March for Life in DC last Friday.
Throughout history, God has used adversity and tragedy to bring the message of His redemptive love to a world that lives in the grip of death. With the advent of legalized abortion, the words of St. Paul ring true, “where sin increased, grace overflowed all the more.” The March for Life illustrates this point because more than any time in history, acts of beauty, love, joy, and perseverance show that Christian spirituality is pro-life. The new movement that has sprung up in the United States has really clarified how the Christian faith is one that affirms the greatness of the family and its deep bond, one that affirms the dignity of every person, and one that seeks to build communion where the world seeks to breed destruction.
