St. Paul Seminary first-year theology students are in Washington, D.C., for the annual national March for Life. St. Cloud seminarian Brady Keller, from St. Gall Parish in Tintah, will provide regular blog updates leading up to the march on Friday, Jan. 27.
Today [Jan. 26] we spent the day at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. We were able to look around this beautiful church built for the greater glory of God. There are 70 side altars dedicated to various saints and titles of our Blessed Mother and Jesus. We sat in choir for the opening Mass for the March for Life. Timothy Cardinal Dolan was the celebrant and homilist. His message emphasized the womb as a sanctuary where babies must be protected and not killed. Tomorrow we head out to the March for Life. God bless.
