Respect life
It was such a joy to hear Cardinal Dolan. Everything he said about the culture of life gives definition to the deep feeling that the secular society in which we live will be the destruction of all that we hold dearest; marriage as God intended, life as He ordained. It is all in jeopardy as long as good men stand by and do nothing. This is the fight of our lives - we have to stand up for what we believe to be true: that what God has intended is 180 degrees from what we see around us. May God arm us for the fight.
