A new national initiative will identify gaps in support for mothers

Life Will Be Victorious - Naumann

This past week at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) meeting, on behalf of its pro-life committee, Archbishop Joseph Naumann proposed a Nationwide Initiative of Prayer, Service and Witness to Life.

A centerpiece of this initiative is for each diocese to examine the resources available to mothers and families who are experiencing an untimely pregnancy.

Through this study of the resources, we are hoping to be able to identify where there are deficiencies or gaps of available support services — as well as opportunities to coordinate better existing resources — so that we can serve mothers and families more effectively.

Our culture often attempts to pit the best interests of women against the lives of their children. In reality, the opposite is true. The church seeks to love both mother and child.
