Choose Life

The “gift of life,” God’s special gift, is no less beautiful when it is accompanied by illness or weakness, hunger or poverty, mental or physical handicaps, loneliness or old age.  Indeed, at these times, human life gains extra splendor as it requires our special care, concern and reverence.  It is in and through the weakest of human vessels that the Lord continues to reveal the power of His love.             – Terence Cardinal Cooke
