Mexican cardinal calls for traditional Marian celebration to include 'mournful' pro-life march

.- Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez of Guadalajara has invited the faithful who will participate in the traditional Marian celebrations of at the Basilica of Our Lady of Zapopan, to dress in white and in something black as a sign of mourning for the Supreme Court’s ruling that abortion in the country is constitutional.

“The annual visit of the statue of Our Lady of Zapopan to the churches of our city is an occasion of joy for the Christian communities,” the cardinal explained in a letter. 

“The return back to the Basilica of Zapopan is a manifestation of the extraordinary faith of Catholics that affirms the public presence of the Church and shows the massive support for the Christian faith,” he added.

The cardinal also encouraged “the diocesan community to assume the commitment of watching over the family and ensuring respect for human life from conception to natural death.” 

In addition, he called on “pastors and community leaders to encourage and promote the participation of the faithful in this celebration ‘For life and the family’.”
