Spirit & Life - The Spirit of Easter Through the Sacred Heart

Defend life with HLI!

Watch my Video Message of Blessings for Holy Week & Easter

One of my favorite images of Jesus is the image of the Sacred Heart with His Red Heart in his Hand, saying, "Here, I give it to you freely."

There's a two-fold meaning in this wonderful gift, His Sacred Heart. The gift is given, meant to be received, but then that gift is meant to be transform the individual who can then share it, transforming the world.

It is not just about receiving the gift, it is about sharing the gift. This is the heart of the work of Human Life International -- to recognize, defend, respect, and share the gift that has been given in Jesus Christ everywhere around the world. No life is to be deprived of this opportunity.

During this Easter time as we contemplate this beautiful gift, be assured of the prayers of Human Life International's family: our directors, affiliates, and collaborators around the world. Be assured of our prayers for your family and friends. 

We pray that our diligence in defense of life may transform our world as Christ himself came that all might have life -- and have it abundantly.

God bless you!

Sincerely yours in Christ,  
Father Shenan J. Boquet
President, Human Life International

Macau - For my second pro-life mission to Macau, I [Dr. Ligaya Acosta] was joined by HLI President Father Shenan Boquet and Dr. Brian Clowes, the director of education and research. During the late winter trip we reached almost 4,000 people and received an invitation to return for a more complete pro-life training mission for clergy and religious by the Macau Bishop, His Excellency Jose Lai Hung Seng. We hope this next mission might take place this November to coincide with HLI's Asia-Pacific Congress (ASPAC) on Faith, Life and Family in Taiwan. - continue-

Dear Lemondrop, it's your daddy. I want you to know how hard your mommy and I prayed for you. I have loved you from the moment I found out about you, and long before that even. You have already been with us for 19 weeks. I remember a couple months ago, we heard your heart beating for the first time. Your mommy and I will always be there to love you along the way. No matter what. - continue -
