Sat, Jan 6, 2018
The Catholic Primate of All-Ireland, Archbishop Eamon Martin, has urged members of the Church to become “missionaries for the cause of life” in the run-up to the abortion referendum later this year.
In a pastoral message for 2018 released on Saturday, the archbishop said Catholics should ignore the “strong pressures to remain silent” and speak to their relatives, friends, colleagues, and public representatives about the importance of “cherishing the precious gift of life at all times from conception to natural death”.
