A Culture of Life...

From Steve at Catholicism, Holiness, and Spirituality:

If we valued life more than
good appearances,
and vengeance…

If we loved,
listened to,
and cared for
ourselves as well as others…

Then we could truly have a pro-life society, a culture of life.

For me, these are all just restatements of the two great Christian commandments to love God and love your neighbor as yourself. Two simple, if not always easy, principles...

...I believe we’re not all called to heroic feats of social justice. But, we are all called to live the two great commandments in our daily lives. And while we may not move a mountain of injustice on our own, lots of little bits of daily love & justice done by lots of people all around the world certainly can....

Amen, Steve.
