|We, the Body of Christ at Our Lady of the Snows, are a community of disciples on a journey of faith. To live the gospel message as listeners, learners, and leaders, we will: Enrich our liturgies as the foundation for greater spirituality; nurture an awareness of Christ in one another—see and reach out to those who long for mercy, healing, and justice; and facilitate the sharing of our Catholic legacy in the diverse settings of our lives.|
The irony is that many people think of us Catholics as people of No -- don’t do this, don’t do that. In reality we are the people of Yes -- yes to God, yes to life, yes to compassion for the poor and suffering, yes to the solidarity and community that make us messengers of joy even in a valley of tears.
~ Cardinal Seán O’Malley, homily at Opening Mass of the 2014 National Prayer Vigil for Life
