Product Details

Understanding the dignity of being created in the divine image is the impetus that forms in us a deep respect for all human life and that propels us to safeguard it with the utmost zeal and paramount care. Affirming human life, however, should not be reduced to a single issue or narrow political stance. Rather, the church’s teaching on the primacy of life among our inalienable human rights is at the heart of our greatest expression of charity both to God, who is the Author of Life, as well as to our neighbor, for whom we selflessly lay down our life. In many ways, it forms the human movements of all of our interpersonal and social relationships. From abortion to euthanasia, to poverty and immigration, to war and the death penalty, life issues impact people at every age, ethnicity, and socio-economic level. Affirming Life: Our Response to God’s Love takes a comprehensive approach to teaching youth about the significant issues threatening the life of the least among us.

In preparing this book, we were inspired by the first principle of Catholic social teaching, the Life and Dignity of the Human Person, and the process known as the Pastoral Circle. The Pastoral Circle was first introduced by Joe Holland and Peter Henriot, S.J., in the book, Social Analysis: Linking Faith and Justice (Orbis Books, 1983). It equips individuals to move from simple awareness or experience of an issue to action. This approach echoes the familiar “Two Feet of Social Action,” which reminds us that both works of charity and works of justice are necessary to effect real, lasting change.
