“God has created all human beings equal in rights, duties, and dignity and has called them to live together as brothers and sisters.”
- Pope Francis, Fratelli Tutti (2020)
Pope Francis challenges us to a deep and prayerful reflection on the human person and the human family: Every human being is a unique and beloved creation of God. As such, every human person deserves respect, care, love. We enter the month of October Respect Life Month by introducing the guiding principle of Catholic social teaching as the inviolable dignity of the human person.
We are calling these first four weeks of October, “Every Life,” with the goal of reinforcing that every life in precious in God’s eyes, every life begins with God and hopefully ends with God, every life stands as testimony to that sacred covenant forged between God and His created order – a covenant of dignity, purpose and peace.
