Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

DAY NINE January 25, 2015
May we treat others with the love & respect that is due to each person as a "masterpiece of God's creation."
Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be
God created each of us, He did so with precision and purpose, and He
looks on each of us with love that cannot be outdone in intensity or
tenderness. Moreover, the Lord invites each of us to behold ourselves
and each other with the same wonder and awe. "Even the weakest and
most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor, are
masterpieces of God's creation, made in his own image, destined to live
forever, and deserving of the utmost reverence and respect." - Pope Francis' Day for Life Greeting
Acts of Reparation (choose one)
Say three Hail
Marys for your parish priest. Without our priests, we could not have
the Mass or the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Pray for your deceased relatives and those who have no one to pray for them.
Spend quality time with a family member or friend; offer to help them with something with which they need assistance.
