Irish bishops issue message for ‘Day for Life’

Catholic World News - October 07, 2013

The Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference on October 4 issued “Care for Life: It’s Worth It,” a brief statement for the Day for Life, which was commemorated in Irish parishes on October 6.

“We can build a culture of life by our compassion and care for others, especially those who are vulnerable, and by speaking of the need to care for life. It means seeing life as a whole, caring for it as a ‘seamless garment’, stretching from conception to natural death,” the bishops said.

The “three issues from within this seamless garment of the culture of life [that] are of particular concern at this time” are “care for unborn children and their mothers,” “care for people who are elderly,” and “care for those who are suicidal and their families,” according to the statement.
