U.S. March for Life founder Nellie Gray passes away

One of the leading lights of the pro-life movement in the United States has gone out. Nellie Gray, the charismatic octogenarian founder of the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., the largest annual pro-life event in the country, passed away over the weekend, and was discovered in her apartment earlier today.

Gray, who was once described by Cardinal Sean O’Malley as the “Joan of Arc” of the pro-life movement, was an ubiquitous figure at the pro-life march every year, her slight frame standing at the podium at stage centre, introducing the many luminaries who addressed the crowd of several hundred thousand during the rally before the march.

    May flights of angels swifly bear her to her rest. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen.

    Nellie Gray was a true heroine. I remember seeing her every year “up front” at the March for Life. This January will be very different without her.
