 Irish Bishops’ Statement on the Dignity of Life: "Every one of us has a right to life. It is not given to us by the Constitution of Ireland or by any law. We have it 'as of right', whether we are wealthy or poor, healthy or sick. All human beings have it. The direct and intentional taking of human life at any stage is gravely wrong and can never be justified. "Women's lives, and the lives of their unborn children, are precious, valued and always deserving of protection. Any law which suggests otherwise would have no moral force. "We offer our prayerful solidarity with everyone dedicated to the sanctity and protection of human life at all stages.”

Bishops Launch Pro- Life Website:


The gift of a new child, entrusted by the Lord to a father and a mother, begins with acceptance, continues with lifelong protection and has as its final goal the joy of eternal life. By serenely contemplating the ultimate fulfilment of each human person, parents will be even more aware of the precious gift entrusted to them. For God allows parents to choose the name by which he himself will call their child for all eternity.” – Pope Francis, Amoris Laetitia, 166. The Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference has launched a new website http://www.chooselife2018.ie with resources and prayers. Please check out this website by visiting the above.

 


 




 




 

 

 

Prayer to the Holy Family:

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,in you we contemplate the splendour of true love;

to you we turn with trust.Holy Family of Nazareth,grant that our families too

may be places of communion and prayer,authentic schools of the Gospel

and small domestic churches.Holy Family of Nazareth,

may families never again experience violence, rejection and division;

may all who have been hurt or scandalized find ready comfort and healing

Holy Family of Nazareth,make us once more mindful

of the sacredness and inviolability of the family,and its beauty in God�s plan.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,graciously hear our prayer. Amen
