Crusade for the Church

Some of you may know (since we told you) that one of our contributors, Lacy, was on the American Life League's Crusade for the Defense of the Catholic Church pro-life walk this summer.

Well, in case you haven't heard, that group of young people broke from ALL in December because of ALL leadership's insistence on maintaining one of the most uncharitable and unsuccessful public relations campaigns in the Catholic Church in the U.S. - insulting bishops by name in half-million dollar ads in national newspapers (I don't know, maybe that money could have actually been spent on women in crisis pregnancies?...just a thought).

Anyway, the young people have formed a new group, the (similarly named) Crusade for the Church, to continue the original mission of prayer, fasting and education about the pro-life cause and our responsibility toward it as Catholics. They could sure use whatever support, including prayers, you can lend them. Their new website is here and they have a new blog here. Stop on by.
