The Sanctity of Life Shrine

Here in a beautiful, multimedia memorial garden you find a life-size bronze sculpture of our Lord in agony over the death of an unborn child.  Tears run down His tortured face as He holds an unborn baby in His hands.

The very moving Word of God from Scripture speaks for Him as He warns the world about the danger of choosing evil over good!  Man is reminded that before we are born He knew us, He formed us and He loves each and every one of us.

Let us remain close in the same prayer! May the Lord bless you abundantly!
