Pleasure without God, without the sacred boundaries, will actually leave you emptier than before. And this is biblical truth, this is experiential truth.

A prayer for Sanctity of Life Sunday. "Lord God we give thanks to You! For You formed each of us in his or her mother's womb and since our births have daily given us the breath of life. We marvel as we read in scripture that John who You appointed to be the Savior's forerunner leapt for joy in his mother Elizabeth's womb.

We whom You have made stewards of creation and especially we who You have called to be disciples of the Lord of life ask that you make us faithful and constant in seeking to safeguard the dignity of every human life whether unborn, afflicted with congenital deformity of body or mind, or debilitated by infirmity.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, Whose mother brought Him to full term despite her humble circumstances and in defiance of the appearance of immorality which her miraculous virginal pregnancy presented to the world, amen."

The only reason for my being killed is that I have taught the doctrine of Christ. I thank God it is for this reason that I die...after Christ's example, I forgive my persecutors. I do not hate them.

To the Unborn Child

Oh Wondrous Child!
Sleeping in your liquid sea
Sheltered from our curious eyes
You bear the image of Divinity.

Oh Beauteous Child!
Fearfully and wonderfully wrought
In the depths of the secret place
Proclaiming in your unformed substance
The mystery of Creation's grace

— Maureen Sutton, Bible teacher and counsellor
