The Spirit of Christ

In his Letter to the Romans, Paul writes, “If the spirit of the One who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also.” The Spirit of Christ is the spirit of life, and to accept the call to follow Christ is to accept the call to welcome, nourish, defend, and celebrate life. We are the people of the One who conquered death, and that is why we fight against the power of death as it manifests itself in evils like abortion. To stand with Christ is to stand with life, not to justify what takes life.

The Church’s pro life work is not based on political ideology, but on the truths Christ has revealed to us.
