To all the members of the Church, the people of life and for life, I make this most urgent appeal, that together we may offer this world of ours new signs of hope, and work to ensure that justice and solidarity will increase and that a new culture of human life will be affirmed, for the building of an authentic civilization of truth and love.
~John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae
Come celebrate the gift of life! From its earliest stages to its final moments, human life shows us the wondrous love of our Creator God. We are all called to respect, cherish and nurture this gift as we work together to bring God’s peace to our world. We hope that you will use this website to explore the gift of life and to learn more about how you can celebrate with women and men who are embracing the challenge and gift of pregnancy. Please join the Diocese of Saskatoon in spreading the joy of the gift of life!
Bishop Mark Hagemoen: Reverence for Life Sunday 2019: MESSAGE
Prayer for Reverence for Life
Almighty God, giver of all that is good,
we thank you for the precious gift of human life:
For life in the womb, coming from your creative power,
For the life of children, making us glad with their freshness and promise,
For the life of young people, hoping for a better world,
For the life of people who are disabled, teaching us that every life has value,
For the life of the elderly, witnessing to the ageless values of patience and wisdom.
Like Blessed Mary, may we always say “yes” to Your gift. Help us to realize the sacredness of human life and to respect and cherish it from conception to its natural end.
And bring us at last, O Father, to the fullness of eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN
