Life and Love

During October, the Church celebrates Respect Life Month.  Her call is to pray and act so that human life as embodied in human beings will be respected, personally and in law, at all stages of human development and decline.

Even a short reflection on this call leads us to consider the connection between life and love.  Without love, life is just a fact; without life, love turns in on itself.  Keeping life and love together in every act is the key to understanding the Church’s teaching on sexual activity.  Her teaching is rooted in God’s own nature.  In God, life and love are one; the living God is love.
