What no one wants you to know about the pro-life movement

Cardinal O’Connor shook his finger at reporters and said “You’re all here, you’re here to print anything I say that might be controversial, that might sell newspapers, but week after week I make a promise, that the institutions of the Archdiocese of New York will help any woman with an unplanned pregnancy … and you never print that … you say we hate women … but you never, ever print (about) our merciful outreach …” This quote from the homily at the Prayer Vigil […]

New York City stands up for Life

Darkness fell on New York City on January 22, the 46th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, as New Yorkers learned that a new bill was being signed into law increasing access to abortion throughout the state on this very day. As the daylight faded and the cold winter winds blew through the concrete canyons of the city, the faithful made their way to St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth Avenue to offer “prayer and penance in reparation for all […]

A March Unlike any Other

As the cold, dreary morning dawned on Washington, DC, few realized that history was about to be made. The wet slushy ground and the heavy clouds made for an ominous backdrop to the 46th annual March for Life, coupled with reports of broken-down buses and unexpected delays, but today was to be a day of surprises … First a trickle of hardy souls arriving at the Mall, having snowball fights and making snowmen as young folks do. Then a slow […]

The Feast of the Holy Innocents on the streets of NYC

As the darkness of night gave way to the dawning day on the streets of New York City, stormy skies opened and a gentle rain began to fall. The city streets, slick with rain, reflected the falling footsteps of those shaking off their sleepiness and making their way to the places people go on a dreary Friday morning. But this Friday would be unlike most Fridays for those on their regular morning commute: Subway cars filled with the flowing white […]

A portrait of protest and prayer in New York City

In the early hours of a cloudy Saturday morning, the pews of Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Soho began to fill. Kneelers creaked as the weight of the faithful and their prayers was laid at the foot of the huge crucifix suspended high above the altar. These prayers were specific. This day marked the conclusion of 40 days of prayer and fasting, guided by 40 Days for Life and the Frassati Fellowship of New York, for all of those impacted […]

New Yorkers pray for persecuted Christians…in Times Square

Summertime in New York City is something everyone should experience at least once in their lives. The city’s ordinarily rabid pace tapers off a bit as city dwellers escape to the Hamptons or the Jersey Shore, fleeing the smell of molten asphalt and trading it for the scent of salt air. The sound of children squealing with delight around fountains and fire hydrants fills the sweltering air with the song of summer, as waves of tourists stroll around the concrete […]

True Thanksgiving

“This is my body…” breathes the priest as he raises the host to show the world the Body of Christ. A moment in time repeated all around the world each day bringing grace, healing, hope and salvation to those who present themselves to receive Him. It is a moment that pulls us up out of the world and into His loving embrace and gives our lives true purpose and meaning. It is a moment that has the power to heal […]
