More to life than just fitness

Today is our Helpers’ Prayer Vigil for Life, a pro-life event with Holy Mass, Benefiction and a 2-mile plus sidewalk rosary procession led by our Bishop Jaime Soto of the Diocese of Sacramento.

My wife and I have been planning this prayer vigil for months and the past week has been extremely busy as we strive for for a perfect peaceful and prayerful event. There are those in the world, including our government, who believe that pro-lifers are dangerous right-wing extremists. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Our goal today is to present the truth of who we are and what we believe to all those who witness us. We are peaceful and prayerful ordinary citizens who bring the love of Christ and offer compassion and choices to pregnant women seeking an abortion.

So that’s all I have to say because I’ve got my hands full today. It's one of those days when there's more to life than just fitness.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
