London, England, May 8, 2018 / 14:16 pm America/Denver (CNA).
A Scottish bishop addressed the March for Life UK on Saturday, challenging pro-lifers to be courageous in sharing their witness.
“We will win this battle by truth, but we will win it even more by courage,” Bishop John Keenan of Paisley said May 5, the Catholic Herald reported.
“You have no idea of the galvanising effect your courage will have if you stand up before the British media courageously, even under attack, and be pro-life. You’re setting the seeds of the next generation.”
Thousands of pro-lifers marched about a half mile from Trafalgar Square in downtown London to Parliament Square for the march. It was the first time that the March for Life UK had been held in London; previously, it had been hosted in Birmingham.
The march was also attended by Bishop John Wilson, an auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Westminster.
