Life from womb to tomb
In this month of October we celebrate God's great gift to us, "life". These series of life devotions have been written with the theme "dignity of life" focusing on the Dignity of Unborn, Dignity of Children, Dignity of Adults, Dignity of Elderly and Dying. Our writers pour their hearts into each devotion, reminding us how truly precious each and every life is and that we are all loved deeply by our Lord from the very moment he started knitting his masterpiece in our mothers womb. Love, Heart of Mary

I pray you have found our life devotions a blessing to your life and all of the lives most important to you.
The human person is the crowning achievement of God’s creation.
Wow God you always prepare the way. A month ago I picked up the book "Our greatest gift," by Henri J.M.Nouwen, a meditation on dying and caring.
Lord Jesus, thank you so much for the wisdom that the elderly generation have to offer us. We pray that you would protect all life and revive the respect for it that is deserved specifically within the elderly.
I’ve always felt like a fish out of water. My inmost me knows I would be most happy to live on a working farm.
It’s always sudden. Even when you know that death will come at any day, it always arrives without warning.
As I read this passage from Psalms I cannot help but feel sadness, an aching in my heart.
Hello Everyone! In the challenges we are faced with everyday, remember God sees you and all of the good you bring to the world, hold on tight to my hand, we walk this journey together:)
God certainly has an interesting, yet beautiful way of directing our lives. I have often heard the saying, “God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called.” This has been particularly true for my life in the Pro-Life Movement.
I recall as a young child going on a family vacation my family stopped to eat lunch at a restaurant. This was a real treat for us because my parents did not often have a lot of expendable cash for luxuries such as eating out, especially since we were a large family.
Each day on the way from the car park to the office, one of my daughters passed by homeless on street corners. She took time to learn the names of those she saw often.
Who is my neighbor?
One of the biggest arguments I hear from pro-choicers is, “what about all people? Who‘s caring for their needs?” It's a legitimate question.
I have always loved the good samaritan parable. It just screams of how Jesus wants us to live our lives. It’s the blueprint!
It’s a question that’s on a lot of people’s minds, even if they don’t realize it. The debate for immigration reform is a divisive issue, especially when concerning refugees.
"Let the little children come to me Jesus hugged the children and gave them all his blessing" Alleluia
In 1989, a small group of Christian women realized that, when faced with an unintended pregnancy, most women turned to only one place: the local abortion clinic.
I have two older sons from a previous marriage. They are good, God-fearing boys who have done well in the public school system.
The words 'simply' and 'real ingredients' are common in grocery stores today. Many women and men seek out 'natural' beauty looks and 'effortless' styles for fashion.
Have you ever been busy, moving through your day, accomplishing tasks with little notice for the details of what is going on around you? Sights? Sounds? Smells?
The church I work at recently merged with the other two Catholic churches in town, to form one new parish.
Have a blessed Sunday everyone! You were created for something truly wonderful:)
My whole teen and young adult life I was a very strong Pro Life advocate. Being the weak, human person, we all tend to be throughout our lives, I judged and looked down upon these women and men who chose abortion.
My husband and I came across some difficulties while trying to conceive our 1st child.
At 29 weeks pregnant with my third child, I suddenly found myself in one of the scariest times of my life. I had been sick for a couple of weeks and was rapidly losing weight
I once came across a #ShoutYourAbortion article that stated that the world is better off without involuntary mothers.
First and foremost, I want to say thank you to all of the ladies that take time out of their days to read our devotions and utilize them to build a stronger faith and connection with Christ.
“Not enough amniotic fluid? What does that mean?”
One more complication in an already difficult pregnancy, combined with a difficult
time of life, is what it meant.
