Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!
The new evangelization calls for followers of Christ who are unconditionally pro-life who will proclaim, celebrate, and serve the Gospel of life in every situation.
A sign of hope is the increasing recognition that the dignity of human life must never be taken away, even in the case of someone who has done great evil. I renew the appeal I made ... for a consensus to end the death penalty, which is both cruel and unnecessary.
Pope John Paul II
Defense of Marriage Between Man and Woman
Marriage comes from the loving hand of God, who fashioned both male and female in the divine image (see Gn 1:27).
A man "leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and the two of them become one body" (Gn 2:24).
The man recognizes the woman as "bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh" (Gn 2:23).
God blesses the man and woman and commands them to "be fertile and multiply" (Gn 1:28).
Jesus reiterates these teachings from Genesis, saying, "But from the beginning of creation, 'God made them male and female. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother [and be joined to his wife], and the two shall become one flesh'" (Mk 10:6-8).
