Youth Rally & Mass

Yesterday I went to the March for Life, but before that, I attended the Youth Rally & Mass for Life at the Verizon Center (yes, I know I’m not a “youth”, but I brought my kids so they’d let me in!). The Rally & Mass are incredible, as 20,000 young Catholics (and their chaperons) enthusiastically stand for life and beseech the Lord to help us in our struggle to defend unborn lives. This event is unabashedly Catholic (the M.C. jokingly called any non-Catholics at the event “the bravest people on earth”), and it was wonderful to sing and pray with so many young people who love the Lord and love the Catholic Church.
One of the most impressive moments of the event is during the opening procession, when hundreds of deacons and priests, and dozens of bishops, process in. The procession alone takes 20 minutes and is quite impressive. Here is a picture taken with my phone camera (click to enlarge):
