Making the Rounds: Bishops Endorse the March for Marriage

 

Thanks to Aleteia for their recent article promoting our upcoming March for MarriageIn the article, Aleteia provides some quotes from a letter written by two leading bishops to their fellow American bishops:

USCCB-LogoThis year, the March for Marriage is getting a specific endorsement from two leading Catholic bishops.

Bishop Richard Malone and Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, chairmen of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth and Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, respectively, have invited Catholics to take part in the march on April 25.

Writing to the U.S. bishops, the two bishops said, “The March will be an opportunity to stand for the good of marriage in our nation, to pray for our Supreme Court justices, and to demonstrate our commitment to the well-being of children. It complements well the bishops’ Call to Prayer for Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty. The anticipated decision of the Supreme Court positions itself to be the most important judicial ruling in our nation since the infamous Roe v. Wade decision declaring a constitutional right to abortion. The March is an important witness to a movement dedicated to building a culture of marriage and the family, and it serves to remind all people that a Supreme Court ruling will not decide the issue of marriage any more than Roe decided the issue of abortion. We are deeply grateful for any support you can offer for this March.”

Thank you to everyone for supporting our annual march, as well as to Aleteia for helping to spread the word!
