#ProLife March message of Pope Francis for 6th March for Life in Italy
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis greeted participants in Italy's 6th annual March for Life on Sunday. The marchers' course passed through St. Peter's Square at noon, and many were on hand for the Regina coeli. "I greet the participants in the March for Life," said the Pope in his round of greetings following the traditional prayer of Marian devotion at Eastertide.
This year, the theme chosen for the March in Italy was, "For Life: without compromises".
The event is not officially aligned with the Catholic Church or any other religious institution, and organizers each year invite all people, groups, and organizations dedicated to the pro-life cause to participate. (Pope Francis joined the March for Life in 2013)
