If you need to wear something dressier on that day, consider pro-life jewelry. Cute "Precious Feet" and "Precious Hands" pins, made to match a 10-week old unborn baby's in size and shape, are a popular option. Lots more here.

To celebrate Pope Benedict's 83rd birthday, please join in prayer for him using this beautiful prayer card from the Knights of Columbus. You can order the cards or print them from their site.
Yesterday, the Pope gave an unexpected and unscripted homily saying: "Now, under the attacks of the world that speaks to us of our sins, we see that being able to do penance is a grace and we see how it is necessary to do penance, that is, to recognize what is mistaken in our life, to open oneself to forgiveness, to prepare oneself for forgiveness, to allow oneself to be transformed. The pain of penance, that is to say of purification and of transformation, this pain is grace, because it is renewal, and it is the work of Divine Mercy."
For anyone looking for the "rest of the story" on these attacks, I recommend Jimmy Akin's blog posts:

We may have lost a battle over the health care reform bill to the culture of death, but Jesus our Lord has conquered death itself! May the joy of the Resurrection fill our hearts in this holy season.
Please join me in an Easter prayer for life, from PrayerCampaign.org:
(Click here for Spanish)
Lord Jesus Christ,
You are the Author of Life,
Who died and now lives forevermore.
May we who work and pray
That children in the womb may be protected
Always draw strength, confidence, and joy
From Your victory over death,
For you are Lord forever and ever. Amen.
Alleluia! He is risen!
