January is a very important Respect Life month, and here are several highlights:
Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in 1973.
Watch this excellent video of Ben Nguyen to learn the untold “back story” of how this horrific Supreme Court decision came to be, as well as the grounds for overturning it.
Ben’s presentation was given on Oct. 23, 2018 at Blessed Sacrament Parish Hall in La Crosse. Ben is both a civil and canon lawyer and serves as Chancellor, Canonical Counsel and Theological Advisor to the Bishop for the Diocese of Corpus Christi. He is a former Chancellor for the Diocese of La Crosse.
Then there is Safe Haven Sunday, coming on March 10, 2019, the First Sunday of Lent, sponsored by the Office for Marriage and Family Life. This diocesan and parish initiative will educate about and confront the plague of pornography with a hope-filled message of healing and grace. See complete information at diolc.org/marriage/safe-haven-sunday and please spread the word.
Finally, watch a must-see video interview with the actress starring in “Unplanned,” the movie about converted former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson - inspiring! Let’s pray that the movie gets into lots of theaters and touches many thousands of hearts! Stay tuned as we work to get it in theaters around the diocese.
