Have you ever wondered what it must be like to actually walk across America?
If so, you will definitely want to tune in to “Gospel of Life” tonight at 6 p.m. ET on Radio Maria!
Joining host Janet Morana will be James Nolan, president of Crossroads, and David Bathon, executive director.
Crossroads was founded in 1995 by Steve Sanborn, a student at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, as a response to John Paul II’s call to the youth of the world to take an active role in the pro-life movement. As it works to fulfill its mission, each summer, and young adults walk on simultaneous pro-life walks across America from Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles to Washington, D.C.
Walking over 12,000 miles and through 40 states, these young people hope to convert the hearts and minds of others – at the grass-roots level – by witnessing to the dignity and sanctity of all human life. Crossroads also conducts a pro-life walk across Canada each summer from Vancouver to Ottawa, which takes simultaneously with our other walks.
The pro-life walks began May 24 and will end Aug. 16 in Washington, D.C.
During the walks, the young people stop at local abortion clinics along the route to participate in prayerful, peaceful protests and sidewalk counseling. They also speak to parish groups to encourage pro-life activism.
Calling in from the road during tonight’s broadcast will be three young people who are actually walking across America. Listeners will hear some of their stories from the road and find out what motivated them to spend their summer break on their feet.
Tune in to Radio Maria tonight – or to the re-broadcast Thursday at 2 a.m. ET – to learn more about this pro-life ministry that literally puts boots on the ground every summer.
