WASHINGTON, Oct. 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by Randall Terry, Director Operation Rescue Insurrecta Nex:
Time and Location: 9:00 A.M., Sunday October 4, 1725 Rhode Island Ave NW, Washington DC.
DC Area Pro-life leaders Randall Terry, Missy Smith, and Dick Retta will be joined by a large group of pro-life advocates outside of St. Matthew's Cathedral to call attention to the 50,000,000 babies who have been murdered by "surgical abortion" in America since 1973.
Moreover, these Catholics will focus on Canon 915, which specifically forbids Catholics who are in public scandal - such as Catholic politicians who support child-killing by abortion - from receiving the Holy Eucharist.
Randall Terry states: "This Red Mass is a beautiful call to pray for Justice amongst judges and statesmen; but in many ways it is a mockery, because many of those attending help kill innocent babies by the millions. While some attend with great devotion, others scoff at Christ by their actions, and commit sacrilege by receiving the Body and Blood of Christ while they hold a knife to the throat of the unborn.
"Perhaps Jesus weeps with grief for the babies, His Church, and for the souls of those men and women who dare to approach His Alter while continuing to kill His precious children."
Note: Pro-life advocates DO NOT have plans or intentions of disturbing the mass. They will speak to attendees as they enter and exit the mass, hold up signs of aborted babies, and signs specific to those attending the Mass.
