Teens' joy is evidence

Youths' joy is 'greatest evidence' Jesus rose from dead, priest says

Members of St. Martin of Tours Parish in Gaithersburg, Md., pray during a pro-life youth rally at the Verizon Center in Washington Jan. 23. Thousands of young people gathered at two Washington arenas to rally and pray before taking part in the annual March for Life.

A Washington pastor told 17,000 exuberant teenagers and young adults gathered at a pro-life rally and Mass in the Verizon Center Jan. 23 that he wondered if they knew "what an encouragement you are."

"I am so glad for your joy ... your joy is the greatest evidence Jesus rose from the dead," Msgr. Charles Pope, pastor of Holy Comforter – St. Cyprian Parish, said in his homily.
