Thought of the Day January 23, 2023 All life is sacred.

By 11:43 AM

  “Every child who, rather than being born, is condemned unjustly to being aborted, bears the face of Jesus Christ, bears the face of the Lord, who even before he was born, and then just after birth, experienced the world’s rejection. And every elderly person…even if he is ill or at the end of his days, bears the face of Christ. They cannot be discarded, as the ‘culture of waste’ suggests!” Pope Francis

You and I, indeed every human being bears the face of Christ. We are created in his own image and likeness. We are meant to share life with him forever. Life as a gift is sacred to God. How do I show respect to the life of each person I come into contact with? To that extent I am showing respect to the face of Christ, etched on the heart the person. Take notice of Christ in each person you meet today. Honor that person who bears the image of Christ. "For what  you do to the least, you do to me."
