After listening to Senator Kerry, his plea to find commonground struck me.
I pray over the next 3 to 4 years we faithful can help bridge the gap between the culture of Death and Culture of Life. That we can help lead people to an understanding that Life is the building block to all the other issues.
That we do not deem the life of an innocent baby over that of a mother. That we see dignity in all life, innocent, old, physically impaired, addicted and even the guilty. That all people have a right to life and repentance.
That to struggle with suffering and unnatural desires, while not easy, can bring Grace to the common good of all.
Once someone can see the dignity in the lest of our children, of course we will see dignity in all our brothers and sisters. Seeing that dignity will help us pour out genorosity to those in need here at home and abroad.
Life will breed Peace. The true Peace of God’s Will done on earth as it is in Heaven.
