The Greatest Commandments
When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them,a scholar of the law tested him by asking, "Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?" He said to him, "You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul,and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first command- ment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments."
“Today, we are confronted with the evil of abortion on demand. It is almost inconceivable that in a society which calls itself civilized it would be legal under the heading of “abortion” to kill a perfectly healthy, almost full-term child. We should be appalled at how easily unborn human life is killed throughout this nation.”
“Countless unborn infants are reaching out to hold on to us with all of their strength since we are the only voice they have in their struggle to find a place, a home, a life in this world.” -- Cardinal Wuerl
