Consistent Ethic of Life

The Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart, as Women Religious, believe in the sanctity of all life as created by God.  As women of the Church, we are called to respect human life from conception to natural death. Human life and dignity is a gift of the creative action of God. Human life is sacred and remains forever in a special relationship with the Creator.


God, our Creator, all life is in your hands from conception to natural death. May all people live and die in dignity and love. Bless all those who defend the rights of those who cannot speak for themselves. Enlighten and be merciful toward those who fail to love, and give them peace. Let freedom be tempered by responsibility, integrity and moral values. Amen.

For Reflection:

  • Psalm 139:13
  • Jeremiah 1:5
