RESPECT LIFE SUNDAY

Each year, the first Sunday of October is designated: “Respect Life Sunday”, when we are asked to recommit ourselves to promoting the culture of LIFE.

It is a good time to ask ourselves whether we are good witnesses to the respect we are called to have for all human life, from conception to natural death. This is challenging because we are members of a society in which there is tremendous pressure to limit our love and ignore the sacredness of human life.

We live in a violent society that sees violence and death by abortion, euthanasia, suicide and capital punishment as a solution to many of our personal and societal “problems”. Many of these attitudes are enshrined in our law and culture, leading to more violence, manifested in spousal and child abuse, the gang culture and so on.

On this Respect Life Sunday, we should pray hard for our legislators, for those mothers who feel forced to choose abortion and for those who provide and promote abortion. But we must also look at ourselves. Do we speak up for the innocent abortion victims? Do we promote pro-life values? Do we vote for pro-life politicians? Do we do anything tangible to protect the unborn?

We can definitely help change our society to become a culture of LIFE, but we must be active, informed and faithful witnesses.
