    Just so people know—

    After the West Coast Walk for Life in San Francisco, there is an Extraordinary Form Mass at 6:00 PM at the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi at 610 Vallejo St. in San Francisco. This has been a yearly occurrence and I just checked to make sure it’s happening again this year.

    (The Ordinary Form Mass for the Walk is at St. Mary’s Cathedral at 9:30 AM, and when I’ve attended there’s standing room only).


  2. Ms. M-S says:

    People ask what they, as ordinary people, can do apart from saying the rosary and their daily prayers and spending time in front of the Blessed Sacrament, in the monstrance or in the tabernacle. If your physical condition and logistics permit, this is it.

  3. I received this interesting email yesterday from the Diocese of Allentown, PA:

    “Bishop Alfred Schlert has announced that anyone in the Diocese of Allentown who attends the “March for Life” in Washington, D.C. on January 24 will receive an indulgence.

    “An indulgence also will be granted to people who are aged, sick or unable to leave their home for the March, but who spiritually unite themselves with those participating in the event.

    “The March for Life is an annual prayerful demonstration against abortion. It has taken place for the past 47 years. Several parishes are running buses.

    “What is an indulgence? After we go to Confession, temporal punishment still remains – not to be thought of as vengeance from God, but rather as a wound from the nature of sin itself. Think of temporal punishment as the time needed to heal the wound of sin. This healing can occur while we are still alive – through works of mercy and charity, prayer, and penance – or after death, in Purgatory. An indulgence helps heal the wound while we are still alive, reducing or eliminating the need for time in Purgatory before we go to Heaven.

    “To receive the indulgence for the March, those eligible also must go to Confession, receive Communion, and pray for the intentions of Pope Francis, all within a reasonable time before or after the event. The indulgence can be used by the person receiving it, or it can be applied to a deceased loved one.”

    If Fr. Z doesn’t mind, here’s the information for the pro life March in Texas:

    There is a March for Life in Dallas, Texas on Saturday, January 18, 2020. Mass begins at 10 am at the Cathedral (Ross and Pearl Street) and the March begins at the Cathedral at 12:30 PM. More information at:


    Other parishes will also have Saturday morning Mass. I have been every year since 2008. It’s worth the drive (and/or the train) for those in the Dallas, Fort Worth, and Tyler dioceses. Oklahoma City and Tulsa, as well as the Shreveport dioceses, aren’t far either.
