Pro-life Quote of the Day

"We must stand out as lights in the darkness, become signs of God's love in a nation seduced by humanism and enchanted with lies. We must be purveyors of life in a culture infatuated with death. Bearing the life of God within us, we must offer love in the image of our Father to those who have not yet heard. This is our mission as woman. This is our call as spiritual mother. This is authentic femininity."

~ Johnnette S. Benkovic in Full of Grace: Women and the Abundant Life

Beautiful.

Nowhere else have I seen this so eveident than at "Birthright." What a beautiful ministry.

This is such a beautiful quote. Women -- even those who are not biological mothers - have so much love to offer others in our culture of death. Prayers, words of encouragement, acts of charity to help those in need can do so much for those who are trapped in the darkness. There are many opportunties available for sharing that love in our own families and communities.

This quote reminds me that we can all emulate Blessed Mother Teresa in our homes and communities in little ways.

I admit, I stole this quote from your site and put it on my own. It's the perfect antidote to today's new about Plan B. I'm so disappointed about that, it's hard to express it. Talk about being "enchanted with lies!"

It's not a problem, Catholic Wife and Mother.
It is meant to be shared.

Politics is a world that seems to be "enchanted with lies."

What we can do is to continue to share the truth.

God bless you,
