Rev. Walter Hoye is a very good man. His life story is crazy, and his wife’s is crazier – just amazing people. He was arrested once at a 40 Days for Life event here in Oakland – next door to Berkeley and about as insane. Then Bishop Cordileone visited him in prison, and they struck it off. Now, the pro life work here in the Bay Area is the most ecumenical, interracial thing I’ve ever seen, with Rev Hoye setting up contact with all sorts of fiery black preachers, men and women with great stories to tell and great heart.
We attended the Conversations4Life Benefit Dinner. I spent most of it choked up – the stories the guests told were gripping and moving.
Tomorrow, three of us will do the Walk (the teenagers are taking the SAT that morning – I despise those tests, but the schools the want to get in require them).
I’ll get some pictures of the couple hundred thousand invisible people attending, and post.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us!
