Fr. Paul Marx, the priest hailed as the apostle of the pro-life movement and founder of Human Life International died March 20 at 89 years old. I'm surprised that most of the bloggers I read on a regular basis haven't taken note - I'm sure memorials will follow once the work-week gets going. Fr. Marx began making a name for himself in 1981, at the time I barely gave a second thought to the abortion issue, therefore my first impression of him back then was that he was sort of a traditionalist fanatic. As it turns out, he was indeed an apostle, as well as a prophet. May he rest in peace.
