There are two prolife services in Boston on Good Friday.
It is a long sad story, that once again, amount to the Chancery employees sowing seeds of dissension and division. Namely, Barabra Thorpe (who had the pins for people who prayed in front of Planned Parenthood) convinced Cardinal Law to issue an edict to stop praying in front of Planned Parenthood. She used to call the police and warn them about planned prayer services, etc. (A piece of work she is.) When some madman broke into a clinic and mowed people down with a gun, Thorpe rode it and the edict was issued. The same Chancery kooks keep out '40 days for life'.
Naturally, they created a division which still exists to this day. I (we all) love people on both sides of the division and as time marches on, I/we hope and pray that we can continue to find ways to support each other, work together on projects - etc., which we do.
I'm trying to find something more concrete to pass along about the Planned Parenthood service -- but it usually begins about 8:30 at the Planned Parenthood facility at 1055 Commonwealth Avenue. When I get confirmation of time, I'll edit.
The other service, The Way of the Cross, starts at 9 at Government Center and does the Stations of the Cross making their way to the Cathedral. They reach the Cathedral about 11:30 for the last two stations, where Cardinal O'Malley joins in. (That must be where the photographers gather?)
These are both run by very solid, hard working prolifers from Boston and I pray both are successful.
