The rosary is a staple of the Catholic pro-life movement. But it’s a strange experience praying the joyful mysteries outside an abortion clinic — especially the first mystery, the Annunciation, when the angel Gabriel told the Virgin Mary she would bear the Son of the Most High. It seems at once poignantly ironic and perfectly fitting.
