Support the vital 'Ocean to Ocean' pro-life pilgrimage

Against the background of a rapidly-deepening global attack on life, leaders of pro-life movements of 16 European and Asian countries met on Saturday 28 January at the Shrine of Our Lady of Częstochowa in Poland. The protection of the Civilisation of Life and Love throughout the world was entrusted into the loving hands of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary. The Act of Entrustment which inaugurated From Ocean to Ocean makes both the situation and its aim quite clear. During a ceremony Archbishop. S. Nowak blessed a specially-created replica of the Częstochowa Icon with the intention of protecting life. The icon was then entrusted to the Russian Orthodox pro-life movement, a small band of whom have now have successfully brought it on  a pilgrimage of 25,000 difficult kilometres across the Russian Far East, Siberia, Kazakstan and European Russia for the veneration of Christians.

This epic pilgrimage will continue in England and Scotland between 5 to 16 November 2012. Please:
