Bishop

On this Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus we in the Diocese of Columbus are thankful for the ruling of the Supreme Court of the United States in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Healthcare Organization. Certainly this speaks to the power of prayer and the witness of so many who advocate for the respect for all human life.

Diocese of Columbus Thankful for U.S. Supreme Court Ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization COLUMBUS 

Dioceseimage

We in the Diocese of Columbus are thankful for the ruling of the Supreme Court of the United States in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Healthcare Organization. The Catholic Church affirms that each human life is a gift from God, the Author and Lord of Life. In the Gospel of St. John (13:34), Jesus Christ taught that we are to love one another and to see and treat all human life the way our Lord and Savior sees us and treats us. "Inspired and sustained by the new commandment of love, the Christian family welcomes, respects and serves every human being, considering each one in his or her dignity as a person and as a child of God." (St. John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio, 64) The Diocese will continue to work to nurture Ohio families and will continue to accept the responsibility of supporting mothers and their children, and to fight for the right to life for every human born, and unborn. This issue brings with it a lot of passion. Bishop Earl K. Fernandes commented saying, “I invite all Catholics to show compassion and understanding. I pray that you will truly be instruments of our Lord’s peace. I encourage you to reflect on two passages of scripture: the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-12) and Jesus’ call to love one another as He loves us and that what we do for others, we do for the Lord (Matthew 25:31-45). These passages display the disposition that we as Christians are called to have in our lives. It is on the basis of our love that we will be judged, so let us ask the Lord to increase our love.“ “The Catholic Church witnesses to the sanctity of all human life, from conception to natural death, and works to build a true culture of life in our nation. May a renewed commitment to life overflow into increased protection of unborn children and expanded support for their mothers and families.” (USCCB, Standing with Moms in Need, March 15, 2022) We are a people of life. We celebrate, nurture and protect life. This is our moment to be heralds of the Gospel of Life.

Diócesis de Columbus agradecida por el Fallo de la Corte Suprema de los
Estados Unidos sobre Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization
COLUMBUS – Nosotros en la Diócesis de Columbus estamos agradecidos por el Fallo de la
Corte Suprema de los Estados Unidos en Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Healthcare
Organization.
La Iglesia Católica afirma que cada vida humana es un don de Dios, Autor y Señor de la
Vida. En el Evangelio de San Juan (13:34), Jesucristo enseñó que debemos amarnos unos a
otros y ver y tratar toda vida humana de la manera en que nuestro Señor y Salvador nos ve y
nos trata.
"Animada y sostenida por el mandamiento nuevo del amor, la familia cristiana vive la
acogida, el respeto, el servicio a cada hombre, considerado siempre en su dignidad de persona
y de hijo de Dios." (San Juan Pablo II, Familiaris Consortio, 64)
La Diócesis continuará trabajando para fomentar a las familias de Ohio y continuará aceptando
la responsabilidad de apoyar a las madres y a sus hijos, y luchar por el derecho a la vida para
todos los seres humanos nacidos y no nacidos.
Este tema trae consigo mucha pasión. El obispo Earl K. Fernandes comentó diciendo: "Invito a
todos los católicos a mostrar compasión y comprensión. Ruego que verdaderamente sean
instrumentos de la paz de nuestro Señor. Los animo a reflexionar sobre dos pasajes de las
Sagradas Escrituras: las Bienaventuranzas (Mateo 5:1-12) y el llamado de Jesús a amarnos
unos a otros como Él nos ama y que, lo que hacemos por los demás, lo hacemos por el Señor
(Mateo 25:31-45). Estos pasajes muestran la disposición que nosotros, como cristianos,
estamos llamados a tener en nuestras vidas. Es sobre la base de nuestro amor que seremos
juzgados, así que pidamos al Señor que aumente nuestro amor".
"La Iglesia Católica da testimonio de la santidad de toda vida humana, desde la
concepción hasta la muerte natural, y trabaja para construir una verdadera cultura de
vida en nuestra nación. Que un renovado compromiso a la vida se rebose en una
mayor protección de los niños no nacidos y acreciente el apoyo para sus madres y
familias". (USCCB, Standing with Moms in Need, March 15, 2022)
Somos un pueblo de vida. Celebramos, fomentamos y protegemos la vida. Este es nuestro
momento para ser heraldos del Evangelio de la Vida.
