CHOOSE LIFE“Although it is a fundamental embryological truth that each of us was once an embryo, the advocates of embryonic stem cell research are eager to portray human embryos as different from the rest of us, unable to make the grade, and hence fair game for destruction at the hands of those who themselves are no longer embryos.”  (Rev. Tadeusz Pacholczyk, Ph.D.)   



God of Love,

  you call us to live in your love through the grace of our baptism.                          

Bless us with courage to carry out the mission of Jesus.

  Grant us open and generous hearts to see the needs of others

  and to respond with compassion.     

May the Church be blest with women and men who are dedicated to you through

   marriage, the single life, the diaconate, priesthood, and the consecrated life.

It is in Christ and through Christ

  that we offer ourselves to you now and forever.  Amen
