.- Bishop Ruben Frassia of Avellaneda, Argentina, announced last Saturday that the Church will promote a huge march for life that will take place in Buenos Aires on December 11. “We want to have the pleasure of saying: we are more and we want to support things that are vital to us, such as the family, marriage between a man and a woman and the defense of life from the moment of conception in the mother’s womb,” the bishop said.

“From this Diocese of Avellaneda-Lanus, we wish to invite everyone to get involved…This will be an ecumenical event.  Therefore it is not necessary to be Catholic or to be believer” to participate.

“The purpose of this march,” he went on, “is not to pick a fight with anybody, but we do want to say that we wish to live these truths and, therefore, let us live them out and help us to live them, and for this reason we wish to be witnesses.  They are the values of non-violence with security, respect for returning to things that are traditional and that belong to us.”

“I invite everyone to participate…Let’s allow ourselves to be bothered a little bit and to participate, to make our voices heard,” Bishop Frassia said.
