Culture of Love and Life

Let us build a new civilization of love and life

"As the Church contemplates Mary's motherhood, she discovers the meaning of her own motherhood and the way in which
she is called to express it. At the same time, the Church's experience of motherhood leads to a most profound understanding
of Mary's experience as the incomparable model of how life should be welcomed and cared for."
(John Paul II- Encyclical Evangelium Vitae n.102- March 25- 1995)
