Sanctity of Life Sunday

Every year, on the Sunday nearest the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the OCA reminds the Orthodox faithful of the Church's teachings on the sanctity of life. Here is part of one of the special petitions added to the Liturgy for this day:

"We ask You to enlighten the minds and hearts of those blinded to the truth that life begins at conception and that the unborn in the womb are already adorned with Your image and likeness; enable us to guard, cherish, and protect the lives of all those who are unable to care for themselves."

Check out Metropolitan Herman's archpastoral message -- it is short and sweet.

Update: Jonathan David links to an Office of Prayer and Supplication for the Victims of Abortion.
