2005 Pro-Life March - Day One - The Bus Ride

Hello everyone! Right now, I'm on the road somewhere in Ohio (even though I am posting the entry on Saturday afternoon in D.C.), and there are about two inches of snow on the ground. I slept for about five and one-half hours, but can't seem to fall asleep anymore (I'm not too fond of sleeping on buses...). Right now, it's 6:00 a.m. St. Louis time, 7:00 a.m. in Washington, D.C. -- the sun is not yet up in either place!

Here's the bus I'm traveling on:

My Bus

Our bus prayed evening prayer and a rosary, watched American Idol (the St. Louis audition show - ick!), screened Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, then prayed night prayer and proceeded to take a stab at sleeping. After four bus-riding 18-hour trips, you'd think I'd have it nailed... but, no, I was aching quite a bit when I arose; these seats aren't the most comfortable in the world ;-) .

Leaving today! Yipee! Please pray for all the Marchers...

Well, folks, this is it (for 24 hours or so...)!

In 30 minutes, I'll be sardine-wiched into a bus for the annual trek to the March For Life. During the bus ride, I'll be saying Evening, Night, and Morning Prayers, saying the rosary, praying, reading, and setting up some pages for pictures on my CGC website. Please visit often, as I'll be updating my blog and my pictures daily (the hotel in D.C. has free WiFi :-).

I also ask that you pray for all those participating in this year's March. Many people will be on the road for more than 15 hours, trekking through snow, ice, rain, and even sunlight! Please pray for safe passage, everyone's health, and, most of all, for the unborn who we hope to help by marching for life!

God Bless :-)

Hello... I'm Mister Confused! [Illustration]

This is one of those posts that can only be classified as 'randomness'. In one of my classes, I found myself making random lines on a piece of paper. One of these lines looked like it had a nose and mouth on it, so I continued sketching 'Mister Confused':

Mister Confused

Why is mister confused quite so befuddled? I don't know for sure, but maybe it has to do with his puzzlement over the media's irrational anti-Catholic stand... maybe he's puzzled over the fact that abortion and contraception are 'silent killers' in our nation and many people are okay with that... whatever the case, he's quite a puzzled little fella!

Jeff News - 2005 March for Life in Washington, D.C.

FYI to all readers: I'll be leaving for Washington, D.C. in two days (Friday). I am travelling (via bus) to the annual March For Life -- the 32nd one, to be exact -- to take a stand for all the babies who have been negatively affected (by that, I mean killed) by our culture's general disrespect for the unborn, made more popular by the infamous Roe vs. Wade judicial decision in 1972 (although, it turns out, the "Roe" in the aforementioned case has since turned Pro-Life).

For your benefit, I will be taking pictures of all the sights while in D.C., and I will be able to post them daily (possibly along with a blog topic), since (I recently discovered), the hotel I'm residing in will have free wireless access! Please pray that all those who are journeying to D.C. this weekend may arrive safely, and for our march to show the nation the importance of a renewed respect for life.

I leave you with a picture from last year's March for Life:

"Stay sober and alert"

Recently a friend of mine has found herself suffering unfavorable circumstances, and I ask all my readers to pray for her, even if it be a simple, short prayer. As I was praying communal evening prayer in the college Chapel, I noticed a relevant scripture passage (1 Peter 5:7-11), and I thought I would share it with everyone:
