OTTAWA, May 15, 2015 ( — On Thursday, Pope Francis’ ambassador to Canada shared the pope’s “deep gratitude” to the country’s pro-life movement at the annual Rose Dinner following the National March for Life in Ottawa.

Archbishop Luigi Bonazzi, who serves in the role of papal nuncio, noted that the Holy Father greeted the Italian March for Life on May 10.

Bonazzi, who stood on the steps of Parliament Hill Thursday with a group of bishops and joined the marchers, said it was his first time at a march for life.

“This is my first march for life but it is something that it is for the first time, but it is to be renewed every day, every day,” he said. “Every day, 365 per year, is a march, is a time to march for life.”

Thursday’s March for Life was among the biggest in the event’s 18-year history, filling Parliament Hill with an estimated 25,000 participants.
