 March for Life in Washington D.C.

On Friday, January 19, 2018, a group of over 30 people from the Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa, led by Fr. Timothy Tarnacki OSPPE, have participated in 45th March for Life in Washington D.C. March for Life is an annual national event which brings together all Americans supporting the right to life from the moment of conception to natural death. The march takes place around the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision legalizing abortion in the case Roe v. Wade. The theme for the 2018 March for Life was "Love Saves Lives", presenting the power of love that can save lives in countless ways.

Prior to departure from the Shrine for this event, the group participated in the Holy Mass celebrated in Our Lady of Czestochowa Chapel. Fr. Tadeusz Lizinczyk OSPPE, the Provincial of the Pauline Order, was the main celebrant of the Mass. Reaching the nation's capital, our Shrine group has attended the rally at the National Mall. Hundreds of thousands of pro-life supporters who participated in the rally and the march were greeted by Jeanne Mancini, the President of the March for Life. Following her address other speakers have appeared on the platform. The most notable speakers were surely the most important officials in US government: Paul Ryan - House Speaker, Mike Pence - Vice President of the United States, and Donald J. Trump - the President of the United States. The Vice President and the President spoke via video satellite from White House Rose Garden. Introducing the main speaker, the Vice President said:

-"My friends life is winning in America, because love saves lives. Know that as you march for life, that your compassion, your persistence, your activism and your prayers are saving lives. And this pro-life generation should never doubt - we are with you".

President Trump in his speech said that He is honored to be the first US President to speak at the March.

-"The March for Life is a movement born out of love. You love your families. You love your neighbors. You love our nation, and you love every child, born and unborn, because you believe that every life is sacred, that every child is a precious gift from God" - said Trump.

The President has also announced that he is ready to sign legislature to end late-term abortion, once passed by the Senate.

After the rally, our Shrine group, along with crowds of people, have participated in the March walking the Constitution Avenue, reaching the Supreme Court and the Capitol building, praying for and supporting the protection of life in America.

Fr. Timothy Tarnacki OSPPE
