NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD
As Catholics, one of the terms that we often hear used in parish and church circles is “Respect Life”. Ever since October 1972, the Catholic Church in the United States has celebrated Respect Life Sunday as a way to call Catholics across the nation to remember the sanctity of life in a world where the dignity of life is not always respected. Respect for human life is a fundamental tenet of our Christian faith laid down for us in the very beginning of the Scriptures in the book of Genesis. This basic respect for human life is further shown us through the example of Jesus, who often fought for the rights of the downtrodden and forgotten of society. He often challenged those who were in a position of authority to help the weak and powerless, and chastised them when they did not.
