Respect Life Sunday

Respect Life Sunday is usually celebrated in October, designed to raise awareness of a particular “life” issue, but also to celebrate life in general. Our previous resources can be found here.

Only respect for life can be the foundation and guarantee of the most precious and essential goods of society, such as democracy and peace.┬áThere can be no true democracy without a recognition of every person’s dignity and without respect for his or her rights.┬áNor can there be true peace unless life is defended and promoted.

Respect Life 2016 will focus on the innate human dignity possessed by each and every person, that does not diminish with age or experiences.
