Respect Life Month – October 2016 – Moved By Mercy
2016 USCCB RESPECT LIFE PROGRAM RESOURCES “MOVED BY MERCY”
The Respect Life Program, sponsored by the USCCB, started in 1972 and begins anew each October—the month set aside by the U.S. bishops as “Respect Life Month.”
The program promotes respect for human life in light of our intrinsic dignity as having been created in God’s image and likeness and called to an eternal destiny with him.
New materials are designed each year to assist those in various roles within the Church to help Catholics understand, value, and become engaged with supporting the dignity of every person, especially by cherishing God’s gift of life.
(from the USCCB’s Resource Guide)
This year, brochures & bulletin inserts include: Bridges of Mercy for Post-Abortive Healing, Caring for Loved Ones at Life’s End, Every Suicide is Tragic, Seven Considerations While Navigating Infertility, Serene Attentiveness to God’s Creation, Accompanying Expectant Mothers Considering Adoption.
