It was a chilly Good Friday morning last week when eighty of us gathered at Planned Parenthood for the “Scriptural Way of the Cross”, led by Fr. Cesar Pajarillo of St. John Neumann Church. We stood together on the sidewalk behind the building, the site of the round-the-clock vigil that launched our fight against the “Abortion Fortress.” Fourteen scriptural passages on the suffering and death of Our Lord were read over a bullhorn by various members of the group. After each, Fr. Cesar offered prayers for our deepened commitment to following Christ. At the conclusion of the service, we raised our hands over the Planned Parenthood building and prayed together for the babies being killed there that day, for their mothers, for the clinic workers, and for an end to abortion. Then I offered some remarks linking Christ’s victory over death with our pro-life mission, and led the group in singing “Were You There”. Many stayed on afterwards to pray the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary together.
