With the start of October, we begin Respect Life Month. The theme in the US this year is “Be Not Afraid.” We can each likely think of several times that Jesus told his followers to not be afraid. Find a good reflection on this theme here. This reflection ends with some very strong words: “Do not be afraid to embrace God’s gift of life. Whatever storms or trials we face, we are not alone. He is with us.”
Find other resources from the United States Catholic Bishops here. Make special note of the Youth Contest and 9 Days for Life to see how you might use or adapt these for the children in your classroom or home.
