Human Rights

“John had told Herod, ‘It is not right for you to live with your brother’s wife.’” –Mark 6:18

            Like John the Baptizer, we need the love and courage to say:

“It is not right to have sexual relations outside of marriage.”

“It is not right to abort babies.”

“It is not right to have homosexual relations.”

“It is not right to use artificial means of contraception.”

“It is not right to look lustfully at a person.”

“It is not right to masturbate.”

“It is not right to tell ‘dirty jokes,’ condone pornography, or dress immodestly.”

“It is right, holy, and beautiful to have sexual relations in the context of the marriage covenant.”

“It is right to be a virgin or celibate until marriage.”

“It is right to respect, cherish, and defend, life from the moment of conception until natural death.”

“It is right to respect those with homosexual tendencies and to offer them healing and encouragement.”

“It is right for married couples to have children and always be open to conceiving them.”

“It is right to look at a Christian’s body and recognize it as a temple of the Holy Spirit.”

“It is right to be and like pure, free, and holy.”

“It is right to be unpopular with those who aren’t living for Jesus.”

“It is right to give Him thanks and praise.”

Prayer: “Through the intercession of St. Blasé, bishop and martyr, may God deliver you from every disease of the throat and from every other illness. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”

Promise: “The Lord forgave him his sins and exalted his strength forever.” –Sir 47:11
