.- The pro-family group Fathers for Good is announcing the launch of online resources for Catholics as the U.S. Church gears up to celebrate Respect Life Month in October.

“Every Catholic father should be a protector and promoter of human life in all its stages,” Brian Caulfield, site editor, told CNA on Sept. 28.

“It is important for us to learn what the Church teaches on the important life issues so we can hand these truths on to our children.”

Fathers for Good will post a different pro-life resource each week on its site, www.fathersforgood.org, starting with a recent statement from Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, chair of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities.

Cardinal DiNardo said in a Sept. 26 letter that Respect Life Month is a time for prayer, reflection and action to advance the right to life and to resist efforts that “silence” moral truth and violate religious liberty.

The Respect Life program began in 1972 and is observed in the 195 Catholic dioceses in the U.S. It begins on Respect Life Sunday, the first Sunday in October.

“Catholics must not shrink from the obligation to assert the values and principles we hold essential to the common good,” the cardinal said, “beginning with the right to life of every human being and the right of every woman and man to express and live by his or her religious beliefs and well-formed conscience.”

Caulfield explained that the Knights of Columbus started the Fathers for Good initiative in 2008 to help men strengthen their marriages and families. The site features regular articles, videos and other multimedia on the subject of Christian fatherhood.

A father of two young boys, Caulfield writes on what he called “the spiritual truths found in daily life and the issues men face while striving to live out their vocation.”
