Papal Message for The Day for Life
18th June 2023
Pope Francis has sent a message of encouragement for all who participate in the Day for Life:
The Holy Father Francis was informed of the celebration of the 2023 Day for Life in Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales under the theme “Listen to Her” and sends his greetings and good wishes to all the participants.
In listening to Mary, our Mother, and following her example, he invites us to discover our personal call from God who is the source of our existence, reminding us that, “Each human being is called by God to enjoy the fullness of life; and, is entrusted to the maternal care of the Church. Every threat to human dignity and life cannot but have an effect on her heart, on her maternal ‘womb’. To defend life is not an ideology for the Church. It is a reality; a human reality which involves all Christians, precisely because they are Christian and because they are human”. (General Audience, 25 March 2020).
With these sentiments in mind, I assure all who participate in this year’s Day for Life of Pope Francis’ prayers, particularly for all expectant mothers and their families. Through the intercession of the Mother of God, the Holy Father cordially imparts his Apostolic Blessing to all participants and invokes an abundance of Divine graces.
Your prayers are requested for the repose of the souls of Tomás ó Eochaigh (Hoey), Shallon, brother of John Hoey and Gerry Farrell, Rialto (Brother-in-law of John Hoey).
We ask parishioners to remember the bereaved in your prayers.
