The Respect Life Program begins anew each year on Respect Life Sunday, the first Sunday in October. We offer this prayer in observance:
God, author of all life,
bless, we pray, this unborn child;
give constant protection
and grant a healthy birth
that is the sign of our rebirth one day
into the eternal rejoicing of heaven...
~ excerpt from the Prayer of Blessing
ADOPTION PROGRAM Month 8:
Now I am finishing my development and concentrating on gaining weight. I am probably starting to make my mother uncomfortable with my size. For some time now I have recognized my mother’s voice. In a short time, I will be born. On behalf of mom and me, thank you for your prayers for the past eight months. It has not been easy, but your prayers have given her the grace she needed to make the right choices.
"The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord." Cor. 15:56-58
