WATCH: A great witness to life, with dramatic anti-abortion march in England

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 10/31/17

From the Catholic Herald:

Hundreds of Catholics joined a silent Eucharistic procession in the city of Norwich on the evening of Friday, October 27 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Abortion Act. Organisers say around 700 took part in the candle-lit procession through the city centre, which was followed by Benediction and a vigil of prayer throughout the night at the Cathedral of St John the Baptist. ddressing the congregation at the start of the procession, Fr Henry Whisenant said: “Our Bishops have asked us to consider this historical moment in our prayers today. For this Act has had tragic consequences for our nation in the last half century. More than eight million surgical abortions have been carried out – which now amounts to more than 500 every day. “And then there are the untold spiritual wounds that such legislation has caused to individuals, to couples and to families, indeed to the very fabric of our society. All of this continues and shows no signs of slowing down.”
