Respect Life

October is Respect Life Month.  As Catholics, we believe that every life is sacred, from the moment of conception until natural death. Every person is made in the image and likeness of God, and so each and every person has inherent dignity. Please pray for the dignity of all life.

Good and Gracious God, Creator and Father of all humanity, we praise you

for the gift of human life. 

We know that it is your immense love that breathes life into each and

every human being from the moment of natural conception until the moment of natural death. 

For this we honor you!

We implore your intercession to change the hearts and minds of all who do not see

the dignity and humanity of each human being from the moment of conception.

We implore your graces upon all who work to change hearts and minds especially through prayers and witness.

We implore the intercession of the most Holy Family, Jesus, Mary & Joseph

that every Mother and Father may be graced with the beautiful parental love

that you model for us. 

We ask all things through your Son,

Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
