The Sancitity of Life

"In reality it is only in the mystery of the Word made flesh that the mystery of man truly becomes clear".

This quote from Gaudium et Spes in the Catechism gives us much to ponder.  It speaks to the foundations for the sanctity of life that the Church proclaims with such joy and hope.  We know that the earliest words of scripture in Genesis tell us that we are created in God's image.  This quote reminds us of the astounding reality that God has entered into this creature created in His image in a wondrous way.  God has given His own Son that human life might be profoundly sacred once again as He originally intended.

Let us continue to work in our society in order to wake up God's people to this tremendous truth.
