2.28.21

“A Christian can never conform to a law which is in itself immoral, and such is the case of a law which would admit in principle the liceity of abortion.

Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes." Second Vatican Council, Church in the Modern World, #51
 

“The Gospel of Life is not for believers alone: it is for everyone. The issue of life and its defense and promotion is not a concern of the Christian alone. Although faith provides special light and strength, this question arises in every human conscience which seeks the truth and which cares about the future of humanity. Life certainly has a sacred and religious value, but in no way is that value a concern only of believers. The value at stake is one which eve-ry human being can grasp by the light of reason; thus it necessarily concerns everyone.” -Pope John Paul II

2.14.21

“Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being's entitlement by virtue of his humanity.” Blessed Mother Teresa "Find the courage to proclaim Christ, ... and the unchanging truths which have their foundation in Him. These are the truths that set us free! They are the truths which alone can guarantee respect for the inalienable dignity and rights of each man, woman and child in our world - including the most defenseless of all human beings, the unborn child in the mother's womb.- Pope Benedict XVI, at Yankee Stadium, April 20, 2008

“Oh Mary, Mother of Jesus and Mother of Life, we honor you as Our Lady of Guadalupe. Thank you for pointing us to Jesus your Son, the only Savior and hope of the world.

Give us your compassion to reach out to those tempted to abort and to those suffering from a past abortion. Lead us to the day when abortion will be a sad, past chapter in our history. Keep us close to Jesus, the Life of the World, who is Lord forever and ever. Amen.” www.priestsforlife.org

He is beautiful in Heaven, beautiful on earth; beautiful in the womb, beautiful in His parents’ arms, beautiful in His miracles, beautiful in His sufferings; beautiful in inviting to life, beautiful in not worrying about death, beautiful in giving up His life and beautiful in taking it up again; He is beautiful on the Cross, beautiful in the tomb, beautiful in heaven. Listen to the song with understanding, and let not the weakness of the flesh distract your eyes from the splendor of His beauty.” St. Augustine of Hippo
