Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity Sister Mary Ann Spanjers reflects on Tucson’s recent March for Our Lives.
Pope Francis told the youth to “cry out” at Palm Sunday Mass including school shooting survivors. Celebrating Palm Sunday Mass with thousands of young people, Pope Francis urged them to continue singing and shouting “hosanna” in the world, proclaiming the lordship of Jesus and following his example of outreach to the poor and suffering.
Sister Leonette and Sister Mary Ann joined members of the staff of the Diocese of Tucson along with students and teachers from San Miguel High School in the March for our Lives. It was peaceful, moving, inspiring and hope-filled! More than 8,000 people participated in the event in Tucson.
