      USCCB offers resources for Respect LIfe Month: Begun in 1972, the Respect Life Program stresses the value and dignity of human life. It is observed in Catholic dioceses throughout the United States. In addition to new prayers and other resources, the 2014-15 Respect Life Program features six articles highlighting the respect due to each person as a “masterpiece of God’s creation.” A variety of topics is treated: adoption, miscarriage, healing within marriage after an abortion, advance medical directives, the treatment of children as commodities, and the connection between poverty and abortion. Cardinal O'Malley's full statement is available in English and Spanish along with many other program resources at www.usccb.org/respectlife. A short video featuring Pope Francis’ warm gestures to the “weakest and most vulnerable” is on YouTube: http://youtu.be/h62l-4OddI0?list=PLpTzvCOJa7DBsXu19BJ8EbwTF5Xi7Vyt7

        Renewed enthusiasm for the practice of lectio divina has led the Church towards a “new spiritual springtime”. However, mounting challenges in secular, family, and parish life have increased the need for a deeper and more integrated practice of lectio. Caretakers of the Word, Mary and Joseph personify lectio divina and show us how to foster a dialogical way of life born out in everyday circumstances. The Holy Family bridges traditional spirituality and contemporary sensibilities, and is a rich storehouse of inspiration and guidance for wrestling with the Word in our daily lives. Our retreat master will be Karl Schultz, director of Genesis Personal Development Center & EWTN contributor. Cost is $150 for the full retreat and $100 for commuters. To register, please call 850-224-2971 or email dasha@neumanncenter.org
