"Father Reynolds stood for hours this afternoon on Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, in front of the Navy Memorial. Other members of the clergy and pro-life activists were spread out along the same block. Almost nonstop, he made the sign of the cross with his right arm while speaking to the marchers offering blessings and prayers. The response was nothing short of satanic. Father Reynolds was cursed at and flipped off by hundreds of marchers, many of whom sported Kerry stickers. Many other marchers mocked the sign of the cross. Some denounced God while others denied His existence. Marchers screamed at the top of their lungs against the priest. He was repeatedly accused of being a child molester by those who support the murder of children. One woman walked up to the priest and stood just on the other side of the police-manned fence separating the sides. She made the sign of the cross, but finished by thrusting her hips forward at the priest while she dramatically grabbed her crotch. All the while, 'pro-choice' marchers were walking behind our lines with the permission of police. This caused me and another man to stand guard by Father Reynolds because the 'pro-choice' marchers kept harassing him and the police were slow to intervene."
PADRE POINT: Cardinal McCarrick recently stated "I have not gotten to the stage where I'm comfortable in denying the Eucharist." I am sure Fr. Reynolds wasn't very comfortable witnessing to Life, but he stood strong. "Let he who has ears, hear!"
