Day for Life is the day in the Church’s year dedicated to raising awareness about the meaning and value of human life at every stage and in every condition. The Church teaches that life is to be nurtured from conception to natural death.
On this Day for Life 2018, let us pray for victims of human trafficking and victims of crime, and for the traumatised, the sick and the dying. We remember the most marginalised and all vulnerable people in our society, the unborn, the homeless and the lonely.
‘As human beings each of us has a common responsibility that upholds the worth of every human life, especially that of the most vulnerable. This common responsibility involves different specific responsibilities at different levels: international, national, local and individual.’ (From ‘Cherishing Life’ – The Bishops of England and Wales – 2004)
With you is the fountain of life. In your light, we see light. (Psalm 39 v 6).
Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10)
