Spanish bishops encourage Catholics to participate in vigil for the unborn

.- Bishop Antonio Ceballos Atienza of Cadiz and Ceuta, Spain has called on Catholics to respond to Pope Benedict XVI’s invitation to participate in the Prayer Vigil for the Unborn on Saturday, Nov. 27.

The bishop invited Catholics across Spain to join in the special night of prayer. “Human life is a gift from God,” he explained. “It is the supreme gift that each person has received from the Creator.  Man is also called to the fullness of life that transcends his earthly existence.

“For this reason, it is the mission of the Church—and therefore of all believers in Christ—to defend and promote the right to life,” Bishop Ceballos said.

The Spanish bishop noted that “changes in today’s understanding of man ... which are the result of a secularized society that has forgotten the Creator” contribute to the emergence of “new forms of aggression against the dignity of human life.”

Bishop Ceballos ended by calling Catholsi to pray that human life be respected and defended by all.
