I had the privilege of being arrested with Fr. Weslin at several rescues back in the 1980s. In one Falls Church, VA rescue the police housed us in an underground garage and Father gathered the Catholics to pray the rosary. He always call the Blessed Mother our "twelve star general."
Fr. Weslin is a personal hero of mine. He was willing to give up everything for the babies. He stayed at our home in Alexandria once because he needed some medical care at Fort Belvoir which was nearboy. His cassock was threadbare; shoes were taped together. He had a small overnight bag that was mostly filled with his Mass kit. What a far cry from the French cuff clergy crowd!
Father was a late vocation after a lay career in the military and being married with children. After he buried his wife, he turned their house into a shepherding home for unwed mothers. He founded the Lambs of Christ to be one with the unborn. When they were arrested they were silent and limp. Just as babies cannot speak for themselves or move around on their own, the lambs identified as closely as possible with the helplessness of the babies. Like Jesus before his accusers they were "silent and opened not [their] mouth[s]."
May the Blessed Mother comfort Fr. Weslin in his last days and welcome him to paradise. I know the babies will be there singing songs of thanksgiving as they escort him before the throne of God. Please keep Father Weslin in your prayers. God bless you, dear Father. You teach us what it really means to be a member of the Church Militant identifying with the suffering Christ!
