Respect Life Month
The Church of the Home
Every October, we celebrate Respect Life Month. As Catholics, we believe that every life is sacred, from the moment of conception until natural death.
Every person is made in the image and likeness of God, and so each and every person has inherent dignity.
This idea is not only about going against killing or harming life, it calls us to proclaim a new culture of life by honoring all life, loving life, and fostering life at all stages.
The Church asks us to reflect more deeply on the dignity of every human life and to work towards creating a 'culture of life' within our society.
As a Church of the Home, reflect on the following questions:
What are threats to human dignity in our society, both large and small?
Who are the individuals and groups working to uphold the dignity of all life?
What are your gifts that you can use to build a "culture of life" in our society?
What actions can your Church of the Home complete this month to celebrate the dignity of all life?
Prayer for Life and Dignity
Eternal God, creator and sustainer of life,
bless us with the courage to defend all life
from conception to natural death.
Bless us with the strength to respect all peoples
from east to west, from north to south,
so that we may truly follow the call of Jesus to be neighbor.
We ask this in the name of Jesus,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit.
Join us for Mass this weekend in person at 4:oo on Saturday, 8:30 or 10:30 on Sunday, on www.gbres.org/live, our YouTube channel, and our Facebook page.

Res and Ruby
Rusty had enough of Ruby's antics so he figured sitting on her was the only way to settle her down.
