.- The bishops of Nicaragua released a message last week reminding Nicaraguans of God's love for all human beings and encouraging them to continue defending life.

“God wished to be born and live among us.  The incarnation of the Son of God is the quintessential act of love,” the message began.  “Each human being who is born is a continuation of this mystery of love and life that we contemplate in the incarnation of the Son of God,” the bishops said.

They expressed gratitude to Mary, “the Virgin of love,” for her total fidelity to God.  Of her was born “the Son of God who is love incarnate; she welcomed life with faith and love, and consecrated herself totally in service to the Lord.”

The message, addressed to all Nicaraguan Catholics, was released on March 25, the Day of the Unborn, and the Solemnity of the Annunciation.  The bishops also urged Catholics to participate in Holy Week celebrations in order to deepen their faith and prepare to celebrate Easter with joy.
