Where's Your Bishop?

I know I've posted this picture before, but I have to toot the horn for the Bishop of Harrisburg, a Diocese of which I'm proudly a member. In an age when so many of them seem embarrassed by their Catholicity, Bishop Rhoades walks tall in his. He'll be at the March for Life in D.C. again this year.

I had the honor of joining Father Dennis Dalessandro and Father Michael Letteer at the Vigil Mass for Life. Our beloved Bishop Rhoades was there with fifty other bishops, 500 seminarians, 100 deacons and ONE THOUSAND PRIESTS. The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception never saw so many clergy ever. And then there were the lay faithful, almost 6,000 of them, many young, besides. What a beautiful way to prepare for the March for Life the next day and I dare say we had more than half a million if not three quarters, peacefully protesting abortion, euthanasia and embryonic stem cell research.

I wish I could have gone down there. One of these years I'm going to have to take off from work.
