>> Dear Editor,

We just celebrated the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8th. St. Maximillian Kolbe states that the Blessed Mother must be very pleased that she is called the IMMACULATE CONCEPTION "because it indicates the special grace that lies at the source of her being, the grace which she received at the first instant of her existence." Recently reading this passage revealed to me, even more clearly, than my previous convictions that not only does human life begin at conception, but that the human soul is created at conception! God cannot create a mass of blood or a blob of tissue "without original sin." He cannot remove original sin from a stone, a tree, or a sand dune; He can remove original sin only from a soul.

How, therefore, can any Catholic, accepting the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, believe that human life and an immortal soul does not begin at the very moment of conception? To be even more candid, how can any Catholic (since to be Catholic requires belief in all the Church teaches) continue to call himself/herself Catholic and also be Pro-Choice, thinking erroneously that a human life is not being killed by abortion? "Either life is always and in all circumstances sacred, or intrinsically of no account. It is inconceivable that it should be in some cases sacred, and in other cases of no account." (anonymous)

It is my sincere hope and prayer, as I finish this letter, that St. Maximillian's words and intercession will assist our faithful readers develop a stronger conviction of the belief in this most beautiful title of Our Lady. What will consequently follow is a stronger respect for the sanctity of life, from conception to natural death, as well as a strong desire to help those wavering souls of all faiths to accept and support the sanctity of all human life.

Sincerely Yours,

Raymond Micco <<

This important campaign showing the feet of unborn babies after only ten weeks reminds everyone that absolutely nobody has the right to kill an unborn child through any form of abortion which means always killing of innocent human life that has to be respected from the first second of the conception. Let's pray for this important initiative! Father Alex
