Father Matt Libra, pastor of St. Rose of Lima Parish in Northeast Portland and leader of the Archdiocese of Portland’s pro-life efforts, visited protesters outside a Portland abortion clinic Oct. 28. He is pictured at right with Marie Barzen and Stephen Pletka.

Father Libra shared a quote from St. Therese of Lisieux: “We were made for a time such as this.” In a note to supporters, protest co-organizer Marie Barzen said, “We all were so encouraged and fortified by Father Matt Libra’s visit today. I want to share his visit so that other prolifers may also be blessed.” (Courtesy Marie Barzen)
