Vigil for all Nascent Human Life – November 27th 2010 7.00 P.M.

The Fundamental human right, the presupposition of every other right, is the right to life itself.  This is true of life from the moment of conception until its natural end.  Abortion, consequently, cannot be a human right – it is the very opposite.  It is a deep wound in society.   Pope Benedict XVI

Vigil for all Nascent Human Life – November 27th 2010 7.00 P.M.
On November 27, 2010, the Holy Father will be celebrating in St. Peter’s Basilica a solemn “Vigil for all nascent human life”, coinciding with the first vespers of the First Sunday of Advent and with reference to the approaching Solemnity of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ.  At this occasion we are invited to invoke the Lord’s protection over every human being called into existence.
It is the desire of our Holy Father that every particular church celebrate this vigil of prayer for all nascent human life involving the faithful in their respective parishes, religious communities, association and movements.
We are well aware of the dangers which today threaten human life, as these are promoted by relativistic and utilitarian cultures which disable human sensitivities and often renders it powerless to acknowledge the inherent and equal dignity that human life possess, regardless of its stage of development or condition.  We are therefore called to be more than ever “the people of life” (John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, 79) both with our prayer and in our commitments.  At this particular extraordinary vigil, celebrated by the Supreme Pastor of the Church and all particular Churches around the world, we shall be invoking the Lord to bestow His grace and light for the conversion of hearts and, at the same time, we shall be offering to the entire world an outstanding ecclesial witness of the Church’s culture of life and love.
(Excerpt from a Letter from Cardinals Llovera
 and Antonelli dated June 14, 2010)
At the invitation of the Holy Father, Pope Benedict, all Parishioners are invited to attend the Vigil for Life in the parish Church on Saturday, November 27th from 7.00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m.  We are invited to pray for the protection of the Sanctity of Human Life and for Healing.
