2013-14 Respect Life Theme“Open your Hearts to Life!”
We live in a society where people don't know and respect their own dignity or the dignity of those around them. People long for fulfillment, yet spend their lives trying to fill the emptiness that only God can fill with other unsatisfying substitutes. It is our responsibility to reach out in love and share Christ with all. Yet even the ways we do this face many challenges, such as the increasing threats to life, marriage, and religious liberty. One example is the HHS contraceptive mandate, which reaches so far as to threaten the ability of Catholic schools, charities and hospitals to serve others in accord with their moral teaching.

The U.S. bishops have called on the faithful to renew a culture of life, marriage, and religious liberty in our country through prayer, penance and sacrifice. To sign up, TEXT "fast" to 99000 or visit www.usccb.org/pray. ~ Anne McGuire, For Full Article Go Here .
