Mexican bishop calls for 'yes' to life this Sunday

.- Responding to a call by the Committee on the Laity of the Mexican Bishops’ Conference, Bishop Mario de Gasperin of Queretaro called on the faithful of his diocese to participate in a massive March for Life to be held this Sunday.

In a message to priests, deacons and religions of the Diocese of Queretaro, Bishop de Gasperin asked for “prayers to the God of life, through the celebration of the Eucharist which will be offered for the defense of human life, from conception to natural death.”

The bishop recalled that Pope John Paul II often said that “the Church is the people of life and for life” and that this devotion to human life is what “defines us in the midst of a society and country increasingly sliding down the slippery slope of death.”

“Our destiny is life and not death,” he continued.  “Our God, Jesus said, is a God of the living and not of the dead. We adore a living God for whom even those who have died live because their destiny is the resurrection.”

He called on all Catholics to join the March for Life and to use every means within their power to defend the culture of life.
