During the first Day of his visit to Boston a group of people from Prayers for life and other Pro-life groups joined Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Priests for life at a protest at Planned Parenthood in Boston.
It was a rather rainy day
But that didn’t stop this protestor
Or these two
Or this deacon and his wife who gave some interesting perspectives on the permanent deaconate
After a little while Fr Imbarrato arrived and spoke to the folks
They prayed together
and after a few others arrived
And he blessed some holy water and prayed some more
there was a procession that went from the back of the building
and back to the front
the person asking the question was a police officer assigned to the area.
the area was more confined than usual due to some sidewalk being laid right in front of the building that complicated keeping the egress open for passers by, but what really struck me was this.
Planned Parenthood and their workers are no strangers to protesters and people praying. It happens regularly so the idea of seeing us in the rain would not seem to be anything that should have caused any kind of commotion among the workers etc. However it seemed to me that the sight of fr. Imbarrato seemed to particularly disturb these folks far beyond the norm.
This impression of mine was shared by at least one other person who has been there in the past.
