When I was a young child, my mom took me and my siblings out of school to go to the local abortion clinic to support Bishop Dudley and the many others who were doing an Operation Rescue. I watched as a humble, prayerful man, priest and bishop was arrested. It was a powerful witness which I still have in my memory. Bishop Swain, by establishing the Bishop Dudley Hospitality House and praying monthly in front of Planned Parenthood, has continued to guide us as a powerful witness to the issues of life.
A witness does not require a great intellect or convincing words. A witness requires a presence. I would invite all of you to join the Life Chain this Sunday (Oct 4th) from 2-3pm. Please pick up your signs at O’Gorman High School parking lot. I look forward to being a silent witness again this weekend.
