Journey of the Pilgrim Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa into Southern California

When our entourage traveled through Southern California, Long Beach’s Church of the Holy Innocents was our first stop on August 9. We brought the Pilgrim Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa to Family Planning Associates Medical Group and Planned Parenthood for a prayer vigil with approximately 100 pro-life faithful. It never ceases to amaze me the power of our dedicated pro-lifers. Throughout the day’s events, their prayers and processions to both locations give such witness to the sanctity of human life that begins at the moment of conception. When we processed back to the church auditorium, we prayed the Divine Mercy Chaplet. Mass followed shortly thereafter, in which I concelebrated with Father Peter Irving, the pastor, and preached at several Masses during our stay.
