It’s been another busy week at Joseph’s House and one that started in the best way possible- with welcoming another new life into the world! The 50th newborn baby to call Joseph’s House home was born early this week. 50 of God’s most precious gifts that got a chance at a better life because of Joseph’s House.
This gift from God was welcomed to the Joseph’s House family at exactly the time it was needed most. This was a difficult week for those who belief in the sanctity and dignity of Life as New York State passed and enacted the Reproductive Health Act. Another woman served and child born, a life saved because places like Joseph’s House exist. The RHA expands the abortion laws in NYS and creates a stark and sobering reminder of the gravity and importance of the work we do at Joseph’s House. The work that includes the love that we give to each person who crosses our path or enters our home. The love modeled after the love that Christ has for all of us.. The dignity of each and every person that comes to call upon us for help. The value and uniqueness of each and every human life and the understanding that God knew them before they were formed in their mothers womb and that God has a plan for their lives.
I share with you the words of Bishop Cunningham on the enactment of this legislation and ask you to join us as we pray for the conversion of the hearts so that all of God’s children will receive the dignity and protection they deserve. Keep the faith and preach the Gospel of Life. If it helps save one of God’s most precious creations, then it is worth all cost. One more soul saved. One more live given a fighting chance. Joseph’s House will be there to provide the love and support necessary to see them thrive.:
God bless you,
