Life is Precious

Life is very precious.  The Lord said 'Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart' Jeremiah 1:5.    So from the beginning of our lives at Conception to our natural death, our lives are precious to Him. 

Servant of God John Paul II proclaimed the following on his visit to Washington in October 7th 1979  "I do not hesitate to proclaim before you and before the world that all human life—from the moment of conception and through all subsequent stages—is sacred, because human life is created in the image and likeness of God.
Nothing surpasses the greatness or dignity of a human person. Human life is not just an idea or an abstraction. Human life is the concrete reality of a being that lives, that acts, that grows and develops. Human life is the concrete reality of a being that is capable of love and of service to humanity."

Family & Life are a charity that supports the work for Life in Ireland and other countries.  Their work projects are many and include going into schools around Ireland to deliver a multi media presentation on the development of the human life in the womb. They give a very excellent and informative presentation which is always warmly appreciated by students and teachers alike. 

Other works include producing a regular update on pro life issues worldwide.   Also through the St. Patricks Fund they help young women in dire circumstances in Thailand who are threatened with lives of prosititution and forced abortions.  More information on these and all the other great work projects to support life can be found at their website.  You can also check out the bookstore on their website for great Catholic books.
