Catholics and Protestants on 8 Mile: Two forms of prayer and one cause: LIFE!

Detroit Auxiliary Bishop, John M. Quinn, leads the Rosary Procession to 8 Mile Rd following 7:30am Mass. It was the first of several vigils which will be arranged by Helper's of God's Precious Infants of Michigan.

I can't re-post all of the photos here on this blog, but will lead you to the Helper's of God's Precious Infants blog where there is a full photo story and many more pics.

With the cold there were less than usual at around 150 people. I've been there when there were 300-400 people. When we processed across 8 Mile, we were met by another group of young people with red tape on their mouths with the word "LIFE" written on it. In talking to them later, I learned they were with the Bound4Life movment.

Those from Bound4Life were in silent prayer as we prayed the mysteries of the Rosary. Two forms of prayer, one cause: LIFE!
