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.

PrayersOur Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be
we prepare to enter Holy Week, we can reflect upon the Divine Mercy
Christ shows us in His suffering, death, and Resurrection. By our sin,
we distance or cut ourselves off from the life of God’s grace within us.
But rather than leave us among the dead, our God wants to wipe away our
sins and welcome us in friendship.
forgiveness, which brings us to life in Him, is possible in the
Sacrament of Reconciliation because He first offered Himself for our
sake. Trusting in God’s mercy and the power of the Resurrection, let us
ask His forgiveness for the times we have failed to respect one another
or to cherish His gift of life.
Jesus’s Passion and death are not the end; they point to the joy of the Resurrection.
