Respect Life Mass

IMG_1630Five members of Brother Martin’s Crusaders for Life Club represented Brother Martin at the annual archdiocesan Respect Life Mass held Friday, October 18th at St. Dominic Church. The Mass was celebrated by fellow Crusader, Archbishop Gregory Aymond CJ ‘67. The Gospel that was proclaimed at the Mass was taken from Luke: “When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, ‘Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.’” In his homily, Archbishop Aymond said that because God became human, all human life is sacred and must be protected. He named other affronts against human life and dignity from euthanasia and capital punishment to poverty and racism.
