Masses This Week

Life is Sacred, Catechism of the Catholic Church n. 2258
"Human life is sacred because, from its beginning, it involves the creative action of God and it remains forever in a special relationship with the Creator who is its sole end.  God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end.  No one can under any circumstances claim for himself the right directly to destroy an innocent human being".
Family Prayer
Guide the work of doctors, nurses and midwives.
May the life of a mother and her baby in the womb be equally
cherished and respected.
Help those who make our laws to uphold the uniqueness
of every human life from conception to natural death.  Amen.
