10th Annual Walk For Life West Coast - San Francisco

Bishop Eric Menees

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) A massive and diverse crowd … rallied in front
of City Hall before marching down Market Street to Justin Herman Plaza for the 10th Annual “Walk for Life West Coast.” … at one point marchers stretched across more than a mile of Market Street.

On January 25th I was blessed to join tens of thousands of fellow Christians along with scores of members from the diocese of San Joaquin at the 10th Annual Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco.  I was honored to be invited to give the invocation in English and Spanish and I was also honored to present Mrs. Georgette Foreny the president of Anglicans for Life and the co- founder of the Silent No More campaign with the St. Gianna Molla award on behalf of the Walk for Life.  This award is given to a man or woman whose life demonstrates sacrifice and commitment to the sanctity of life and advocacy for women and their unborn children.  It was a great honor for me to participate with the Diocese of San Joaquin in this truly wonderful event.

For you yourself created my inmost parts; *
you knit me together in my mother's womb.
I will thank you because I am marvelously made; *
your works are wonderful, and I know it well.
My body was not hidden from you, *
while I was being made in secret
and woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes beheld my limbs, yet unfinished in the womb;
all of them were written in your book; *
they were fashioned day by day,
when as yet there was none of them.

From the Psalm (139) for Epiphany III Year A

Quite a crowd. Let's hope the turnout is reproduced at the polls!
