Remembering a Pro Life Hero

The Lutheran pastor, Dietrich Bonhoeffer is perhaps one of the greatest pro-life heroes of the 20th Century. Today is the anniversary of his birth and the following words should inspire and challenge us to do more to protect life: 

"Christianity stands or falls with its revolutionary protest against violence, arbitrariness and pride of power and with its plea for the weak ... Christians should give more offence, shock the world far more, than they are doing now."

  1. Thank you for this. Yes read the introduction to his COST OF dISCIPLESHIP . he makes the point that discipleship's road may lead us down many roads but it is Jesus who is our Companion.
    What unites true Lutherans and Catholics are more than what divides us.
