Carlo Maratta Nativita

"…in God’s eyes, all human life is sacred! God has a plan for each person! …we proclaim with the Psalmist that God endows each person with dignity and worth from the moment of conception! 'Truly you have formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb. I give you thanks that I am wonderfully, fearfully made…(Ps 139: 13-14).'”
