Respect Life Ministry - Resurrection Catholic Church - Wayne, IL

"In our present social context, marked by a dramatic struggle between the "culture of life" and the "culture of death", there is a need to develop a deep critical sense, capable o descerning true values and authentic needs. What is urgently called for is a general mobilization of consciences and united ethical effort to activate a great campaign in support of life. All together, we must build a new culture of life."

-Blessed John Paul II, The Gospel of Life, no. 95
