Diocese of Covington at 1125 Madison Ave., Covington, KY 41011-3115 US - HomeWelcome to The Diocese of Covington
My dear Friends,
We enter the month of October, which is dedicated to the Respect for Life, with the world, including our own country, in disarray. Violence, killing, unrest and turmoil surround us. Life is regarded in so many places and in so many ways as disposable. This is no way to live, no way to appreciate the precious gift of life that God gives us.
During this month of October let us pray that each of us will come to appreciate the wonderful gift of life that is ours. Let us pray that all people come to respect life at all its stages, from conception to natural death. Let that effort begin in the hearts of each of us by respecting our own life as well as the lives of all we meet. Respect for life, like peace, begins in the heart of each individual.
October is also the month of the Holy Rosary. I encourage you to pray the rosary every day during this month of October for respect for life. Our Blessed Mother certainly had her share of trouble, of sorrow. She beheld her Son despised, tortured, beaten, bruised and put to death. She held his lifeless body in her arms. What sorrow she must have experienced, how her heart must have been broken. Yet the Scriptures do not record one word of complaint, one word of hatred, one word of anger toward those responsible. What an example she is for us!
We live in exciting but certainly challenging times. May the Lord Jesus and His Blessed Mother always be our guide and may we entrust our lives to their gentle care.
Be assured of my prayers for you. Please, pray for me.
Yours devotedly in the Lord,
Most Reverend Roger J. Foys, D.D.
Bishop of Covington
