It is easy to get cynical about Bishops, and then one of them does something like this:
“Wow, we’re really surrounded by a lot of religious symbols,” said Scharfenberger when he arrived, pointing out statues of Mary and Jesus located on the second story of a building, once planned to house a Christian adoption agency, across Warren Street.
The men gathered on the sidewalk were part of a campaign called 40 Days for Life, a national movement calling for a peaceful approach to protest abortion through prayer, vigils and community outreach.
“My approach is about making a change in their hearts,” he said of those they were praying for, mentioned in prayers as the people in the building behind them (Planned Parenthood). “My hope is that the Lord moves them to do the right thing. That they get guidance to choose with their conscience.”Bravo Bishop!
