Respect Life

Life, particularly human life, is the possession of God alone: therefore one who attacks human life,
in some way lifts his hand against God Himself.
The Gospel of Life, 9



Living Stewardship Now -


Make a conscious decision today
to see Christ in those around you and
respond to them accordingly.

La Corresponsabilidad Vivida Ahora -

Haz una decision consciente hoy para ver a Cristo En los que están a tu alrededor y actúa como corresponde.


Respect Human Life: “It is poverty that a‘child must die’, so that you may live as you wish.”
- Mother Teresa

“...at the origin of every human being there is not something haphazard or chance, but a loving plan of God.”
- Pope Benedict XVI
