A Message for Pro-Life Day 2019

We celebrate our third Pro-Life Day on the Feast of the Visitation at the end of May. The choice of this Feast to promote the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death is particularly appropriate, in that the reality of the unborn Word of God having been brought to visit and to bless his cousin John the Baptist, causing the latter to leap in the womb for joy, to emphasise the human dignity and rights of the unborn, which we can now visualise with 4D ultrasound technology from early pregnancy.

Protecting human life

THE FEAST OF the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary on May 31 is also marks the third year the Pro-Life Day will celebrated in the Diocese of Hong Kong.
 
Many places overseas organise pro-life processions to show their concern for the unborn, whose lives are especially fragile. These silent ones are the least able to defend their own lives.
