Happy Respect Life Month!
Here are four easy steps to making a difference for LIFE this October:
1. WATCH the Archbishop's Respect Life Month video message.
2. PARTICIPATE in the Life Chain on Respect Life Sunday.
3. GIVE to your parish and school Baby Bottle Drives benefiting the Respect Life Pregnancy Help Centers.
4. JOIN US at the Congreso Pro Vida & bring your family and friends.
Friends, the tide is changing and we, as a Church, have to be ready. WE CAN and WE WILL overturn Roe v. Wade. We are and we will continue to accompany our brothers and sisters facing crisis pregnancies, as well as those seeking hope and healing after abortion. We are called, and we must create a culture of life and love that makes abortion unthinkable-- in our families, in our parishes and schools, throughout our nation and our world.
But each one of us has to play our part.
So let us take a stand and offer prophetic witness, let us give and not count the cost, and let us humble ourselves in order to learn, grow, and be as open to the Holy Spirit and as faithful as glorious St. Joseph, defender of Life!
