THE PRO-LIFE Caritas Việt Nam
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (Psalm 139:13.16).
The author of Psalm 139 experienced about the mystery of life and the loving providence of God when creating man. Life of human has been formed since being an embryo. The embryo is growing in the womb and is loved and cared for by God from the beginning of a human life. But there are people considering the fetus not to be human; and they give themselves the right to decide on the life of the fetus allowing it to live or die.
Children are blessings and the inheritance that God gives to parents. Many people were too tired of looking for doctors everywhere to expect a child but they still could not get it. Besides, there are merciless people killing small babies in the womb; just because they thought the baby would be as a burden and trouble; it would lose honor, freedom or promotion of parents and related people.
Caritas Vietnam's website entitled Pro-Life will bring readers information about activities to protect human life that Caritas Vietnam and Caritas Dioceses are implementing; provide readers with knowledge of the value of life to help everyone getting a healthy, happy and peaceful lifestyle; and convey a message that "life is a noble gift of God”. So, people must appreciate the value of life and protect life.
The real sad stories will help those who are wondering about the temptations of life find the strength and courage to live the commandment of God and follow the teachings of the Catholic Church.
The experiences and needs to operate are inviting all people to join hands in prayer, commitment and financial support so that activities can be more effective; to serve a large number of young people to have a healthy, joyful and happy lifestyle.
