Respect Life Program 2014 - Pamphlets

     The 2014 Respect Life Program features seven pamphlets in a series called Life Matters. Each presents convincing support for the teachings of the Catholic Church on major pro-life issues, with facts and reasoning drawn from science, history, law, psychology, sociology, and other secular sources.



(C-FAM.ORG) is the primary Catholic-based organization inside the United Nations that fights against religious discrimination, the U.N.'s abortion rights, and the U.N.'s radical agenda to remove all parental rights and promote the social definition of gender and explicit sexual education and sexual freedom to the youth of the world.  "Pleasure" has become the standard for sexual freedom.

Bishop Cary's letter to the faithful regarding the anti-abortion demonstration at Planned Parenthood in Bend on Saturday, 22 August. 

"For those with eyes to see it has long been clear that abortion is a bloody business. The videos dramatically unmask the callous hard-heartedness that underlies that bloody business and drives it forward at taxpayer expense. . . . [T]hese videos directly expose the grisly reality of the abortion industry in our land.  I encourage all of you to watch them yourselves."

La carta del Obispo Cary a los fieles con respecto a la manifestación en contra del aborto en las oficinas de Planned Parenthood en Bend el Sábado 22 de Agosto.

“Para aquellos que tienen ojos para ver que por largo tiempo ha sido claro que el aborto es un negocio sangriento. Los videos desenmascaran dramáticamente la dureza del corazón insensible que subraya ese negocio sangriento y lo impulsa hacia adelante a costa del contribuyente. . . .
[E]stos videos exponen directamente la espantosa realidad de la industria del aborto en nuestra tierra. Los animo a que los vean por ustedes mismos”.

Open your hearts to life!

The Respect Life Program begins anew each year on Respect Life Sunday, the first Sunday in October. The program is highlighted in liturgies and marked by special events. The USCCB Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities publishes a program packet each year to call attention to numerous human life issues. These materials are especially helpful for priests, parish groups and other organizations.

Liturgy Guide:

The liturgy guide, available in both English and Spanish, includes homily notes and intercessory prayers for Respect Life Sunday and January 22, excerpts from the new "Mass for Giving Thanks to God for the Gift of Human Life" (and reflections on the Mass), excerpts from the new "Rite for the Blessing of a Child in the Womb," orders for the blessing of pro-life pilgrims and missionaries, and a prayer service for our nation in light of 40 years of abortion and for the healing of all those involved in abortion. (Microsoft Word version: English, en español)

When a mother first sees her child in an ultrasound, there is a bond formed between them. Ultrasounds give a window into the womb where the humanity of the unborn can be seen clearly. YOU can help mothers in your area connect with their unborn babies by supporting Pregnancy Resource Centers, Right to Life organizations, and other pro-life groups. 
 She truly is God's masterpiece!
