Building a Culture of Life

June 4, 2020

As our churches reopen and many across the diocese are able once again to encounter the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist, the events of the last two weeks should serve to remind us that Christ is also present in every person we encounter.

In good or evil, help or horror, solidarity or abuse, any action taken for or against another human being is also visited upon “the indestructible image of God the Creator.”

We must never lose our respect for life, which is fundamentally a respect for the inherent dignity of the human person, rooted as it is in the image and likeness of God. This divine image is present and identical in each one of us.

The murder of Ahmaud Arbery or George Floyd or any human being is tragic and demands justice in our courts and forgiveness in our hearts. Any act which degrades and denigrates a human person is destructive in the efforts to build a Culture of Life.

To promote respect for life and the defense of the human dignity of the person, our dialogue and work to establish a true Culture of Life is ongoing because our personal and cultural conversion is continual.

Very Rev. Daniel F. Firmin, J.C.L.
Diocesan Administrator

Construyendo una Cultura de Vida

June 4, 2020

A medida que nuestras iglesias se vuelvan a abrir y muchos en la diócesis pueden, una vez más, encontrarse con la presencia real de Cristo en la Eucaristía, considero que los eventos de las últimas dos semanas deberían servirnos para recordar que Cristo también está presente en cada persona que se cruza en nuestro camino.

Cualquier acción tomada a favor o en contra de otro ser humano: bondad o maldad, compasión o desprecio, solidaridad o abuso se inflige, de la misma manera, sobre "la imagen indestructible de Dios el Creador".

Nunca debemos perder el respeto por la vida, que es fundamentalmente el respeto por la dignidad inherente de la persona humana, arraigada en la imagen y semejanza de Dios. Esta imagen divina está presente de igual forma en cada uno de nosotros.

El asesinato de Ahmaud Arbery o George Floyd o de cualquier ser humano es algo trágico que debe llevarnos a exigir justicia en nuestros tribunales y perdón en nuestros corazones. Cualquier acto que degrada y denigra a la persona humana es destructivo en los esfuerzos por construir una Cultura de Vida.

Para promover el respeto por la vida y la defensa de la dignidad humana de la persona, nosotros debemos trabajar continuamente por nuestra conversión personal y por el establecimiento de una verdadera Cultura de Vida.

Very Rev. Daniel F. Firmin, J.C.L.
Administrador Diocesano
