In preparation for the observance of Sanctity of Life Sunday on Jan. 19, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is reminding every pastor in America that “preaching against abortion does not mean we are judgmental, nor does it mean we are political.”
“It simply means we stand with the weakest, most marginalized members of our society, the children still in the womb, and we stand ready to help their moms and dads welcome new life, despite the fears they may have,” added Fr. Pavone.
Describing the significance of the date, the Director of Priests for Life recalled, “It’s been 30 years since President Ronald Reagan designated Jan. 22, 1984, as Sanctity of Human Life Day, to coincide with what was then the 11th anniversary of the tragic and unjust Roe v. Wade decision. So many Churches, of all denominations, continue to mark the third Sunday of January as Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.”
