Seminarians in Charlotte ridiculed while praying outside an abortion facility

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 10/03/16

The image above appeared on the St. Joseph College Seminary Facebook page: seminarians and local parishioners praying outside an abortion facility in Charlotte, NC.

The posting also included the image below:

A commenter explained:

She is paid by the abortion facility to discourage pro-lifers from “harassing women.” Meanwhile she complimented them on their “dresses” and ridiculed them for “praying to the trees.”

Pray for these seminarians, and all those who courageously continue to bear witness to life—especially during Respect Life Month. And let us continue to pray for those who treat life, and faith, with so much disdain.
