Right now, and for the next coupla hours, you all can have the amazing experience of being able to be at the Vigil for Life!
It’s streaming, right NOW, right HERE! Of course, an even better feed would be on your own television screen, but if you’re already here….you can run the feed in a window up in the corner even…just saying….
It’s at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. and it’s filled to overflowing with people from near and far, of all different backgrounds and ideas and even houses of religion (tho make no mistake, it is overflowing with Catholics, lay and religious alike…an awesome gathering).
But the one idea that unites everyone in this Mass, is that life has intrinsic dignity and is precious, all of it, all of them, no matter what, no matter who, no matter how or where. It simply does.
This vigil is a witness to it. Tangible, visible, audible, spiritual, bodily. It precedes the March for Life that takes place on the Mall tomorrow, but it is in my mind the most moving part of the whole weekend. Because here is where you can see and hear and feel hearts and souls being lifted beyond the constraints that bind them here. And, even better, lifted together.
Go, look, listen, imagine, pray. It’s awesome.
