Why is Cherishing Human Life so important?

The Catholic Church’s teaching on the dignity and value of every person is very special. Every human life is precious and beautiful. Some people feel the right to life of the unborn should be a matter of personal choice for the mother. Others maintain, while they are opposed to abortion as a general principle, there are some children to whom the right to life does not apply because they have been diagnosed with a serious medical condition or because they have been conceived as a result of rape. The Church’s belief, based on reason as well as faith, is that there is no such thing as a human life without value. www.ChooseLife

Reflection – Vocation Sunday:

Like St. Peter all of us who are Baptised and Confirmed are filled with the Holy Spirit – it is the Holy Spirit who enables us to respond to the call of Jesus Christ to be his witnesses each day in so many different ways. It is the Holy Spirit who enables all of us to follow the path God invites us to follow in life. It is the Spirit who is the source of every vocation, who kindles the flame of love of God and his people in our hearts. Let us trust God’s Spirit especially when he calls us to serve in a way that involves giving of ourselves, that involves trusting that the Lord who calls us will not abandon us.
