March 25th is celebrated as the Day of the Unborn all over the world.
Instituting the day as, "A positive option in favor of life and the spread of a Culture for Life to guarantee respect for human dignity in every situation," the soon-to-be Saint John Paul wanted us to reflect on the Incarnation -- the conception of Jesus in the womb of Mary through the power of the Holy Spirit -- because it reminds us of the gift that forever affects human history and affords to man and woman their dignity. He also wanted to prick the conscience of society by making us remember the millions of unborn children whose lives have been violently ended by the crime of abortion -- globally nearly 50 million every year.
John Paul II's desire to raise greater awareness and accountability is making a difference. While many nations celebrate the unalienable dignity and value of every unborn child, we recognize that the threats against the unborn are still present and growing. The Feast of the Annunciation invites us to reflect upon the wonder of every human life, particularly the amazing world of the developing child yet to be born. Please join on March 25th by participating in pro-life events in your community. Let us stand in solidarity with the universal Church in its call to prayer and active defense of every human life. John Paul II wanted a positive favor for life to be cultivated. Let us make it a greater reality. (Father Shenan J. Boquet
President, Human Life International)
We at the DFSC hope that you will in some way or the other celebrate the day to remind the faithful to pray for the unborn and their mothers.
