In his recent address to Congress, Pope Francis reminded us all that: "The Golden Rule also reminds us of our responsibility to protect and defend human life at every stage of its development. I am convinced that this way is the best, since every life is sacred, every human person is endowed with an inalienable dignity."
The American Bishops have designated the whole month of October as a month to celebrate the gift of life, the gift that is ours from the moment of conception until the moment we leave this life for eternal life!
So let's celebrate by giving a hug to our parents and grandparents and thank them for the precious gift of life. Let's also take time to thank God for loving us into life!
