Kansas City - St. Joseph Bishop Robert W. Finn and Kansas City, Kansas Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann joined 700 area Catholics in praying the Rosary outside Planned Parenthood's abortion facility in Overland Park, May 9.
The third annual peaceful Mothers Day rosary attracted twice as many participants as last year. Bishop Finn and Archbishop Naumann took turns leading the 20 decades of the Rosary. In brief remarks before prayer, Bishop Finn said in part:
"What we do hear is pray in His name as His Church and as His people. We do what we do with great love and we ask the Holy Spirit to intensify and mold and shape that love - to cause us to trust Him more and more for the good that we hope to accomplish. Principally our petition is for the conversion of human hearts - our own and those who have brought a horrible scourge on our society and upon the world in the willful destruction of human life and in disregard for its dignity and value."
