October is Respect Life Month. Today inserted in the bulletin is letter signed by all the bishops of Connecticut. I encourage you to take some time to read this very important letter.

The battle to uphold the dignity of life continues in our time. As Catholic we stand on the front line of that battle and our voice must continue to be heard. We speak for the most vulnerable, the unborn, the sick and the elderly. Our stand on life cuts across all ages and all stages of life. All races, all creeds, all nationalities, all levels of socioeconomic status, born and unborn are created in the image and likeness of God and possess an inherent dignity. When the dignity of human life is not upheld we see a deterioration in all parts of society.

During this Respect Life Month I encourage you to let your voice be heard for life. Together we can have a very powerful voice and together we can make a profound change in our culture. Our voice can enact laws, change hearts and offer support and comfort to those who feel they have no voice. Together we can make a difference in a person’s life who is struggling with an unplanned pregnancy through organizations like Carolyn’s Place. Together we can create a culture of life by adhering to our founding principles of the right to life, liberty and happiness. Together we can seek and restore justice for any one life that is not given due respect.

Find your voice and seek to create a culture that respects all life.
