Catholics Respect Life
Posted by . on October 3rd, 2013
We are all familiar with the adage, “It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.” What greater darkness can there be than the shadow cast over our country by the passage of Roe vs. Wade thirty years ago resulting in the deaths of over 56,000,000 babies.
I have known those feelings of frustration and helplessness that so many of us have experienced in regard to this issue. I have asked myself, “What can one person do against a culture of death so prevalent in today’s society?” The answer for me has been to join with others in prayer, in extending a helping hand to women in crisis pregnancies and in supporting each other in whatever aspect and degree of pro-life work that we feel called to do.
Here at Good Shepherd we are blessed to have a Catholics Respect Life group made up of men and women committed to promoting a culture of life. We meet monthly (the 2ndTuesday at 6:45). I invite all parishioners to join us and see what we can do together to make a difference. Come, light a candle! Cathy
