This week at LifeNight we reaffirmed how life is sacred from conception to natural death. We all walked away with tangible, practical ways to live out this teaching daily. ANNND we played a fun game using the Catechism- hilarious. Check out our pictures!
Below are some quotes and tips for ways to support life everyday.
“And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and she exclaimed with a loud cry, ‘Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!’ ” —Luke 1:41-42
“Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person—among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.” —CCC 2270
“Nothing we do to defend the human person, no matter how small, is ever unfruitful or forgotten. Our actions touch other lives and move other hearts in ways we can never fully understand in this world.” —Archbishop Charles Chaput
You can be an example and supporter every day through the way you live! Here are some ideas to get you started in the upcoming week:
• Start a Group: Join with others your age to meet and speak out on the value of life. Go to teensforlife.com to discover how to start a group and get information about local events, resources, and meetings in your area.
• Watch a Flick: Gather others from your small group and rent the DVD October Baby, a film about a young college girl who discovers she’s actually adopted—after a failed abortion attempt. Through her journey, this young woman discovers that life can be so much more than she had ever planned. Then check out everylifeisbeautiful.com for a list of resources as well as video stories about embracing life.
• Be a Friend: Connect with someone whose life is quite different from your own—maybe someone who doesn’t feel his/her life is valued because of abilities or age or circumstances. Become part of a buddy program that meets with people each week so you can learn and discover more about their lives and gain the knowledge that each life, no matter what stage, is valuable.
