REPECT LIFE CORNER
USCCB Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities Respect Life Reflection:
“Called to Serve Moms in Need”
“The witness of our Blessed Mother invites us to become more aware of the needs of pregnant and parenting moms in our own parishes and communities… Following Mary’s example, we can ask ourselves how to better know these mothers, listen to them, seek understanding, and help them obtain the necessities of life for themselves and their children. How can we, like the Blessed Mother, lovingly support mothers in welcoming and caring for God’s gift of life?”
