October Respect Life Month 


Pope Francis has captivated the world with his humility, warmth and compassion for each person. Vivid accounts of his tenderness “for the least of these” – the elderly, the imprisoned, those with disfiguring disabilities, the unborn, and many more – seize our attention. Why?


At the heart of each of the interactions is a truth which resonates in our hearts, revealing to us something essential to understanding ourselves and our purpose: We are loved.


As you know, October is Respect Life Month, and October 1 is Respect Life Sunday, when the Church celebrates in a particular way the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. This year’s Respect Life Month theme is “Each of Us is a Masterpiece of God’s Creation.”
