Joining with the Pope in praying for all unborn human life

Giving thanks for the gift of prayer for unborn human life, instigated by the Holy Father and with bishops worldwide taking up the invitation to encourage the laity to pray with them. Here in Newcastle, blanketed in snow and with temperatures ensuring it's not going to leave in a hurry Bishop Seamus Cunningham led a prayer vigil at St Mary's Cathedral. Joyful mysteries of the rosary, Benediction, hymns, adoration, prayerful petitions and a heartening pro-life homily I had thought I would never hear from an English Bishop.
