Promoting Justice

Last night I joined thousands of people including other Presentation Brothers and lay Associates for the "Unite for Life" pro life vigil outside our national parliament.

The video gives a flavour of the event.

If last night was about "the unborn" then today is about the rights of "the born" as I attend a meeting with Edmund Rice International - an advocacy organisation based at the United Nations in Geneva.

Learn more about them by visiting their website and subscribing to their monthly e-letter.

Uniting for Life...

I'm traveling from Cork to Dublin today to attend the "Unite for Life" event outside our national parliament, Dáil Éireann. It's a pro-life vigil which aims to send a clear and positive message about safeguarding the lives of mothers and babies in pregnancies.

The Dáil is about to begin a debate on abortion legislation so tonight's event is very important.

In recent decades religious congregations have been to the forefront of advocating for social justice and for human rights. The right to life is the most fundamental human right of all.

I'm glad to be able to be part of this and am looking forward to joining other Presentation Brothers at the vigil.
