COLUMBUS--Catholic schools are committed to the spiritual, intellectual and physical development of the students entrusted to them. Often, teachers encourage learners to seek information in the form of asking questions. Students at St. Anne-Pacelli in Columbus were asked to ponder what question they would ask the bishop if given the chance. Bishop Gregory J. Hartmayer, OFM Conv. then answered their submitted questions on stage in front of a crowd of around 430 supporters of Catholic education at the Deimel Ball on January 27.

What a wonderful sight to behold: From Capitol Hill as far as I could see, there was a sea of people on the march for life!

 

But the recent 45th March for Life was bittersweet. 

 

It was inspiring to see so many people, from so many states, marching on behalf of our unborn brothers’ and sisters’ right to be born. But it was sad to think that we have been marching for 45 years – with no end in sight.

“Weep for lost memories that never were.  Weep for that which never was.  Mourn the memories you do not possess.  Mourn the present moment that was not willed to be.”  I wrote these words in 2010 while sitting on the back pew of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Washington, Georgia.  The last time I had entered that small, rural parish was mid-December, 1995, a few days before my brother was diagnosed with cancer.  I was scheduled to play the piano at Christmas Mass that year, but we never made it.

“If you think having toddlers is hard, wait until you have teenagers.”

 

I will always remember the day my friend uttered these words. I think we were standing outside in a large, open backyard where I had managed to be still just long enough for that exchange. And then it was off to chase another small boy who had scaled another tall object.
