Our Lenten Journey, March 7, 2019
Quotes of the Day:
“All life has inestimable value even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor, are masterpieces of God’s creation, made in his own image, destined to live forever, and deserving of the utmost reverence and respect.”
“Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love but to use violence to get what they want.”
“Those who defend the right to life of the weakest among us must be equally visable in support of the quality of life of the powerless among us: the old and the young, the hungry and the homeless, the undocumented immigrant and the unemployed worker.”
― Cardinal Joseph Bernardin
