October is Respect Life Month

Throughout October we will be posting information about Catholic teaching on Life issues as well prayers for life. The month will be centered around Joseph, Defender of Life.

During this Respect Life Month, we can start to become more like St. Joseph by asking ourselves a few questions and reflecting on them:

Do we realize how precious every person is?

As we go about our day, do we treat people accordingly?

How can we help those in our society who are struggling to welcome new life, like moms who are pregnant or parenting in difficult circumstances?

How can we reach out to those having a hard time seeing the worth of their own lives?

How do we reassure those at the end of life who are afraid they are a burden or feel like their lives don’t have meaning?
