You are loved, cherished and chosen.
Why do you exist?
God chose to create you. From all of eternity, God desired that you be. He wanted to make you in His own image and likeness, a unique and unrepeatable reflection of His eternal glory. There is nobody like you, and there has never been nor ever will be anyone like you. He knows everything about you – your likes and dislikes, your favorite food, your secret hope and dreams, your sorrows and joys, the way you look and how you feel … and He loves you. In fact, He delights in you.
You are made for love. Society tells us that our worth is measured by what we can do, produce, and achieve. But the human person is made for love, not use. If we stake our lives on what the world considers important, we end up being wounded by our own and others’ decisions. This can lead us to think we don’t matter…which too often leads to fear, confusion, pain, isolation, addiction, and even death.
Our goal is to eliminate violence against unborn children, their mothers, and those who are dying. We unalterably oppose the use of violence in any form to achieve this objective, and we condemn the actions of those few who advocate otherwise. It is our hope and expectation that in focusing on the need to respect and protect the lives of the innocent unborn and those who are disabled, ill, or dying, we will help to deepen respect for the life of every human being
Why does The Center for Life Exist?
The why answer must inspire people to do the things that inspire them so that, together, each of us can change our world for the better by fostering a culture of life.
We believe every person is valuable and sacred. We believe that every person is good, loved, unique and unrepeatable.
We believe that every person’s life has deep meaning, purpose and worth. In fact, we give our lives for that truth to respect and support a culture of life.
Our goal is therefore to help integrate the Respect Life message into the very life of our immediate parishes, schools, or ministries. Based on feedback from parishes, this approach focuses less on developing new materials and much more on using existing resources to build a Culture of Life.
