23-country, 11,000 mile pro-life pilgrimage begins on East coast of Russia

Posted by Joseph on 26 June, 2012

On June 14, a coalition of Catholic and Eastern Orthodox pro-life leaders from 18 countries launched the “From Ocean to Ocean” pro-life pilgrimage of the icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa from the Eastern Coast of Russia to Fatima, Portugal. The intent of the pilgrimage is to promote the defense of life across continents that have been decimated by widespread contraception and abortion.

“There are many remarkable stories over the centuries of faithful Catholics marching with an icon of the Blessed Mother into situations where the odds seem insurmountable, but where the faithful emerge victorious,” said Father Peter West, vice president for missions of Human Life International, which is coordinating the pilgrimage. “That is the situation in which Europe finds itself today, amid a seemingly impenetrable culture of death marked by abortion, contraception, euthanasia, and other assaults on life. This return to a public witness of tradition and faith is desperately needed for those who have lost all hope and faith.”

  1. God’s choicest blessings on this extremely important work to protect the sanctity and dignity of the unborn child. Thankyou for this is a work close to my heart. I became a Religious Sister some 33 years ago and have offered my life for the repeal of legislation which allows abortion. Sr. Maria

      Thank you sister, St. Louis de Montfort wrote that Mary will never be outdone in generosity. Give her an apple and she will give you an ox. Our Lady will reward you for your heroic sacrifice.
      Please remember us in your prayers.
      yours in Jesus, Mary and Joseph

      Joseph
