Fr. Thomas Eunteneuer: Thanksgiving and Protection for God's Gift of Life

"First and foremost, we thank God for the precious gift of our lives. No matter what the circumstances of our conception or birth are; no matter what challenges we may have had to face, life itself is a good that comes from on high and which God always sustains. We can share our lives with others, fill others with life and lay down our lives for our friends. Those who are married can even participate with God in the creation of new life for time and eternity. Not even the angels have been given the gift of procreation!

"More than anything we are called to protect life which is sacred and which is so threatened in our day and age. In this Advent season we must make sure that we have some type of explicit pro-life, pro-marriage or pro-family commitment to others in order to show God how much we appreciate these tremendous gifts of His love."
