Sanctity of Life Sunday - Created in His Image

And the Lord God formed man of the slime of the earth: and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7
The Lord God Our Creator distinguished us from all the other creatures of the earth by forming us from dust and breathing an eternal soul into our bodies. We are His children, and as such occupy a unique place in this life and in the next. When pro-abortion people speak of the unborn, they attempt to dehumanize them - an effort to diminish their place in society. This perverted attitude toward the unborn has lead to a society no longer respectful of the human person nor his soul. 

Wednesday, January 22, 2014 will mark the 41st year of legalized abortion. Let us never forget that we are God's chosen ones, carrying His breath, in the form of an eternal soul within our being. Even at fertilization that soul has a destiny - to live as a child of God and to love and serve Him alone. May we aid society in recognizing this aspect of humanity by our prayers, love, and education of others. God bless those who will be participating in the 41st Annual March for Life and all other pro-life activities scheduled in our efforts in calling attention to the need for the respect of all life. As we are told in Romans 8:31, "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who is against us?"
