Sanctity of Life

‎" While still in the womb of Mary - Jesus brought peace to John the Baptist who leapt for joy in the womb of Elizabeth. The unborn was the first one to proclaim the coming of Christ." Blessed Mother Teresa

Pray for the unborn, pray for the women and men wounded by abortion.

Prayer Quote

Virtues are formed by prayer. Prayer preserves temperance. Prayer suppresses anger. Prayer prevents emotions of pride and envy. Prayer draws into the soul the Holy Spirit, and raises man to Heaven. -- St. Ephraem

If we could only stop to pray before our emotions gain control of our mouth and action!

The last line is a beautiful illustration of prayer bringing God to earth and His Spirit, through this prayer, lifting us to Heaven. Here we find a Father who only wishes to embrace His children, to comfort and love.
