As we make our Lenten journey, I invite you to join with me and thousands of others in a Lenten Prayer for Life. You will find it at www.priestsforlife.org. Lent is a season in which we prepare to celebrate Christ’s total victory over death, and our share in His life by baptism. Death was not part of God’s original plan for us. Scripture says that God created all things that they may have life, and that He does not rejoice in the destruction of the living.
Standing with Christ in His new life means standing against whatever destroys life.
The Lenten prayer for life renews us in our commitment to be the People of Life. It can be prayed each day by families, school classes, parishes, and individuals.
